High-quality entertainment will do wonders for your charity event. It will help you encourage donations and keep your guests entertained throughout the event. There’s always a but, and here comes a big one. Not all entertainers are created equally, which means, you have to be careful when hiring entertainment.
In this article, we will show you some of the most important qualities to look for when choosing the entertainers to perform at your fundraiser, so everything will go off without a hitch.
Experience Is Key
Experienced performers are resourceful entertainers. They know the ropes and are better equipped to tackle any issue that might arise during their act.
For instance, if there is an unexpected sound problem during your event, they will not panic on stage. They, most likely, had to face these types of situations in the past and can improvise something and overcome technical difficulties, so nobody feels uncomfortable.
The Grable Group is proud to represent a broad range of talented speakers and artists, with industry experience in nonprofit events, and who are more than capable to switch to Plan B and C, if the situation asks for it.
It is not enough for entertainers to be talented; they also need to be reliable and deliver on their promises.
The question is, how can you find out if an entertainer can be trusted, without wasting much time? Well, the easiest way is to look for recommendations from previous clients. Credible entertainers have testimonials and referral letters, and they are usually provided online.
Take our recommendations page, for example. It is easy to access, updated and shows real feedback we’ve received from our clients.
If you can find no good reviews, that is most likely a red flag, and you should not ignore it. If you have any doubts about the credibility of an entertainer, it is better to look for other options.
The last thing you want is to book an entertainer, who will show up late for your charity event or make inappropriate comments on stage.
It is important you can collaborate and communicate effectively with the entertainer, who will perform at your event. The entertainer you choose should be willing and available to answer questions you might have in a professional, yet friendly, manner.
Remember that communication is crucial to making sure your unique needs and requirements are met.
