Depends really how much you have in the pot.

The two main core entertainments are a good band and a good DJ.
Any Summer Ball I have been to that is where the money is spent. Also a good comedian would be good, but he/she does have to be good.

Little things like having a string quartet playing as the guests arrive, if you have a music school nearby, ask them, they would be happy to play for you. (in UK). Always look at local resources and see what you can get for free and cheap.

Basically the little things are nice, when people walk in they want to feel special especially the women, give it 3 hrs when everyone is p1ssed, who really gives a dam.

I am sure you will get lots of other suggestions, and good luck with the function :lol:

There's a really good live band in BFG called love custard. Let me know if you're interested and I may be able to put you in touch

we had a bloke doing monologues of the stanley holloway variety the other night. he forgot the first one half way through and his act went down hill from there. He was even prompted by members of the audience. I refused to applaud when he had finished and was rewarded by an evil glare from the missus who later accused me of being impolite. FFS he was getting paid.

Starfire entertainment did me proud for Christmas.

Band called 'Focus' were good, 60's through to modern, everyone was happy.

Your PEC or one in a nearby mess should have Starfire's details

I'll second that. They are very good. They'll play just about anything and they get the night going as well.

As for classical stuff try getting in contact with one of the BFG Schools Music Teachers. They'll either be part of a quartet or will point you in the direction of one. They'll be cheap as well, but you may have to lay on transport.

You could try some of the Military bands for ideas?

Personally I have always found Britannia Entertainment to be a cut above the rest of the agencies with quality entertainment as competitve prices. They can do an all in package or whatever.
Good stuff and I am sure they wont let u down

Now mate,

you need Grand Theft Audio www.myspace.com/gta2007

these guys are awesome - 4 piece band (w/ fit, single chick :)


they do the lot. DJ, hosting, band, games whatever you want. I saw them doing a biker festival and they blew the place to pieces. They do a load of songs you wouldn't think of, then rip em up and then make up whatever else.

if you get hold of them say hi to Kat for me (mmmmmmmm) :wink:

I used the below to organise a Ball type event after our freedom parade in May 07. Very good throughout, both the agency and the performers they sent along.

Or you could try magicalmammaries.. Guaranteed to liven up the dullest of messes. And there's plenty of competition for that title!

We are all posting on this old and ancient post because we are bored with nothing better to do. Who gives a toss about which agency is better than the other? If you get a good deal stick with them if you don't move on - talking of which don't waste anymore time on this - I only posted my original comment to fan a fire its flaming burning!!!
