You are given the task of finding surprising musical acts for an event at your company.
What is your next step?
First, you may try to figure out what ‘surprising’ actually means, then you may get a bit confused as to where it is best for you to start searching for performers to match the description.
If so, you are in the right place to try and find out what musical acts can best enliven the event(s) you are in charge with.
We are kicking off the musical list in style with this versatile vocalist who brings a soulful vibe to the stage.
Tim’s innate ability to perform manifested as soon as he started to sing in a choir, then learning to master the trombone and also while teaching himself to play the piano. These early signs of Tim’s performative track record can partly explain his success on America’s Got Talent when, in 2012, Tim advanced through to the semifinals.
Besides AGT, Tim also made an impression while:
- Headlining festivals like Clearwater Jazz Festival or the Mill Valley Arts Festival.
- Sharing the stage with the likes of Steve Miller or Robert Cray.
- Touring with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
A percussion duo with a twist, rePercussion, may be the most unconventional percussionists and one of the most surprising musical acts people have the chance to see on stage.
Not only are they excellent instrumentalists, but they are also aware that the secret to happy guests is to surprise them. rePercussion does this by using out-of-the-box percussion elements (like pots, buckets or pans) which they masterfully use to generate dance-y, funky sounds.
rePercussion can be considered masters of interaction with the crowd, mainly because, each time they take the stage, they manage to engage the audiences with their unparalleled music-comedy blend.
Let’s say you are organizing a high-class event and you are looking for a refined music band to match the occasion.
However, maybe you want the performers to bring surprising musical acts as well. You want your guests to keep talking about your event.
Refinement and surprise can both be found in Michael and Amy Pickering’s dueling pianos act.
Starting with the prop itself and ending with the dynamics between the protagonists, Amy’s and Michael’s performance is nothing short of engaging.
The secret ingredient is the healthy dose of comedy which pleased both large audiences and critics. On top of it, there’s a bit of theatre, a bit of improv and loads of chemistry to round the act nicely.
Bradley Bean and Jackson Bailey teamed up because they were both animated by the idea of creating surprising musical acts which get people up and moving.
Their concept is a fusion of stand-up comedy, musical bits, parody and tons of friendly banter between the contrasting personalities of Bean and Bailey.
And fear not: their music is entirely suitable for environments requiring clean acts, so there’s no need to worry about potential sensitive content.
