Determining what you are looking for regarding entertainment doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, it should be an enjoyable part of planning the biggest party you'll ever throw... your wedding reception! When I receive calls regarding my entertainment services, the conversation always consists of the following important, yet obvious subjects... Can a meeting be arranged prior to making a decision, is professional attire worn, is back up equipment available on site, the vastness of the music library, are cordless mics used, are lights included, are requests accepted, insurance coverage and, of course, pricing. In fact, pricing is usually the first question that is posed. Price, of course, is a major factor, regardless of what we are purchasing and must always fit into your budget comfortably. And while all of this must always be taken into consideration and must be discussed, I think it's important to point out that if the entertainment company you are considering is truly professional, is serious about their career and takes pride in what they do, all of the above items are granted, no matter who you choose.
Keep in mind that your entertainment company will be performing, more times than not, from the moment your guests arrive and they will be the last ones to leave. With this in mind, naturally you're going to want someone who you truly feel comfortable with, enjoy interacting with and are looking forward to spending most of the day, or evening with. Doing your homework, interviewing and choosing someone who's personality is compatible with yours is truly a real value.
