A Band Story to Tell!

5 06 2013

Kaleidoscope-new

Of course I have hundreds of stories….but this just happened. How many times have I said that you must use an Agency with a track record? In the long run, using a professional agency will save you time and money-and anguish! This is what Davis Event Group does every day. We are not at home watching TFV and serving you in between. We are here every day to help you get the best in entertainment and decor for your event!

I just got an email that I could not believe! A client who has contracted one of our bands said:

“The contract does not explicitly address the provision of equipment – speakers, cables, amplifiers, microphones, etc. It may be safe to assume the band will provide whatever it needs to put on a show, but we heard a story recently about a client that booked a band and found out the week of their event they needed to provide (rent) all of those things.”

I was appalled that a band would do that! Of course all of our bands carry all equipment needed to do the job. If you want that in the contract, we are happy to include it…but…just another reason to use a professional agency with a good track record in the industry! http://www.daviseventgroup.com/content/why-should-i-use-professional-agency

Casino Events Are All the Rage!

4 06 2013

Casino events are all the rage….and once most of my clients do it for their events, they are hooked! It’s a great way to entertain, a great way to  get people to interact-and it’s great fun!  When you are booking a Casino, make certain you know what you are getting. If you want what you see in Vegas-say so. A less expensive option can mean that the games are just a piece of fabric that rolls out on a table. That is not at a legitimate Casino!   You also want to be sure that your dealers look professional as well. The company should have their dealers dressed in tuxedo pants (or skirt), tuxedo shirts and bow ties.

Always remember that not everyone will gamble, so have something for those attendees to do. Those things can include a DJ for dancing or listening, or other games like pool, ping pong, foosball and air hockey. 

Davis Event Group does dozens of Casino events. Our tables are beautiful, our dealers are professional-and we do great decor as well! Call us now to get the best for your night in Vegas- complete with awesome decor!  703-461-7253, jan@daviseventgroup.com

The Importance of choosing the Right Music for your Event

The Importance of the choosing the Right Music for your Event

Image

Recently, in  one of my meetings magazines, I  saw a comment from a planner who was complaining about a loud band at a Networking Reception she attended.  Wait, I said to myself, why is she blaming the band?   She said “Bands think the only way to play is loud”!   It made me very angry to hear that because I know it’s not the band’s fault!  Yes, there are bands that only play loud, so why would you book them for a reception where people are trying to talk? You see? It’s not the band’s fault-it’s the fault of whoever booked the band!

 

This is just another reason that you should use a professional even when it comes to something as simple as booking the right entertainment for a reception.  As you can tell from this woman’s comment, the band ruined her experience at the networking reception-and that is how it goes!   Someone involved in the planning of that reception did not hire a professional to assist in choosing the music and she should have.

 

If people can’t come to a reception and do what they have come to do- whether it is talking or dancing- then no amount of fabulous food or great décor can make them stay and enjoy themselves. Remember,  music  has the power to make or break an event. Hire a professional or do your research-but don’t blame it on the band when you have made the wrong choice!

Company Picnic Entertainment – Music Brings the Party To Life!

3 08 2012

company picnic, outdoor party, company party, family fun

Summertime is a great time to host a company picnic, and there are tons of great entertainment ideas that you can incorporate into your celebration.  When we think of entertainment, one of the first things that comes to mind is music.  Music brings people together from all walks of life, which is why most companies choose to feature music entertainment at their party.

What better way to share in good times with friends and coworkers than to have a live band play at your next company picnic?  Live bands bring so much energy and excitement to the party.  It’s no wonder why so many companies choose to hire a live band, because in essence the music is truly ‘the life of the party!’

The Davis Event Group features many talented live bands and musicians.  Be sure to stop by our website to get a closer look at our roster! – www.daviseventgroup.com/top-40
