We were in Terre Haute Indiana tonight for a very exciting awards dinner. They really had the process down. They’ve. been hosting this annual event to honor their employees for several years now. Of the 500+ people in attendance more than half stayed for the entire hour afterwards.
I would like to think it was the wonderful dueling pianos show. But I know it was a combination of things. As corporate entertainers we have seen all manner of corporate events. Live music is a crucial ingredient every event planner should be ready and willing to include.
Yet we have become experts in the field of corporate entertainment because we have kept an open mind. Keeping your employees around for more than an hour after what could have been a boring batch of speeches requires precision and experience.
1. They kept everyone on schedule. In fact, they were ahead of schedule.
2. They made the employees the show. Not the speakers or speech makers. Oh the speakers were good. But the winners were chosen in advance. They walked down a red carpet. They had cameras and pictures and video to capture the moments. The honorees were the show.
3. Live music brought them all together. Dueling pianos is especially interactive. So we had them included, involved and interacting with us right away. Those that didn’t sing along with the piano players Loved the jokes and the camaraderie that occurs when live music is included in your corporate events.
Call us for dueling pianos shows and piano bar entertainers. No matter the size of your group – 50 or 500 or more – we can add to the success of your corporate event with live music and experienced corporate entertainers.
