Event planners often have some “go-to” ideas when it comes to hiring a headline act for their big corporate event.
Maybe it’s a magician, or a cover band, or an impersonator.
There’s just one problem with all of those types of acts: they’re not improvisational.
And not only is the audience not connecting with the entertainment, (they’re just sitting and watching), they’re not connecting with each other.
Unfortunately, that means it’s not going to be a memorable event.
Think about it: would you rather watch a magician perform some tricks, or watch an entertainer that has your colleagues laughing, singing and having a terrific time?
The more you can make the entertainment memorable, and the more you can forge an emotional connection with your audience, the more meaningful the experience becomes.
It’s not just my opinion; it’s the opinion of “experts” as well. Take a look at this article and you’ll see what I mean.
Speaking of making your event a more personal experience, check out this article too.
What I offer is a one-two-three entertainment punch: music, comedy and improv.
Working together, those two unique talents helps to ensure that the event experience invites, embraces, engages and delights the audience.
They’ll walk away with happy, lasting memories of having had a wonderful time for themselves as well as with their colleagues.
That’s exactly what you want to happen!
And whether you’re planning for a product rollout, sales seminar, trade show or other type of company event, I deliver an interactive entertainment experience that has your audience clamoring for more.
Sound exciting? You bet it does. And the best way to see how it fits into your overall strategy is to talk about it.

Right now, in St. Burchardi church in Halberstadt, Germany, there’s an organ playing a song that has no end—in our lifetime, anyway. Even though the sheet music for minimalist composer John Cage’s “As Slow as Possible” is only eight pages long, the song will take 639 years to complete. It’s part of Cage’s larger exploration of how music exists in time and space; he wrote the piece for an organ because the pipes can last for thousands of years. A machine, called a blower, constantly supplies air, and a weight holds down the pedals. The first three-note chord, which was played in 2003, lasted for a year and a half. The church is committed to playing the song until it’s over. If you can’t wait for the full version, don’t worry: The club remix will drop any day now.
Now that’s one of the longest music gigs ever! Call for a shorter one +1773-527-7417

Just a quick update on Vicki my lovely cargo van for pulling gear to out live music gig. She is all better now. It was the ignition that needed to be replaced. But my mechanic Scott was so spectacular at going the extra mile, we also wound having to swap out the fuse box. Apparently, in that model of Chevy Express Van, the fuse box is under the master cylinder and gets all corroded and wet throughout the years.
So he had to pull that out and replace it with all new fuses after cleaning it out.
So here’s to safe travels to tonight’s corporate entertainment event in Chicago.
