Weddings have turned into a redundant string of baby’s breath and line dances. There are only so many repetitions of the ChaCha slide a sane adult can handle, and I am sure you exceeded that limit four weddings ago. You may scoff and swear you will never have this awful singer or that outdated DJ at your celebration. However, when it is your turn to plan, what better wedding entertainment do you have in mind? Here are a few unique groups to help you think outside the realm of ordinary entertainment and will save you from hiring the neighborhood garage band.
Wedding Entertainment Beyond The Average Wedding Singer
This trio features three incredibly talented violinists. They have a wholesome, elegant sound that will add class to your reception in a way only string instruments can. String Angels takes modern songs and interprets them into a classical form, allowing your guest to experience music they love in a whole new way. Whether you request Debussy or Def Leppard, these ladies can play it all.
Street-side painters are entertainers who add delight to any stroll down Main Street. They bring joy on an average day, so why not have one paint your big day? Heidi Schwartz is a vibrant artist who will capture her inspiration from your wedding reception and bring it to life on canvas. Allow your guests to visualize the journey of creating a live event painting, rather than being limited to admiring the final product. The memory of your event will be embodied through acrylic brush strokes and all the guests in attendance will represent some piece of the painting, just as they do in your life.
Three Waiters is a smart trio of entertainers who pose as a part of your waiting staff before revealing themselves as the opera singers they are. The trio uses improvisation and spontaneity to exploit the humorous events of the evening, using audience interaction as a key piece to the performance. Bring the theater to your reception with this fun trio.
If you decide modern and classic music is the best option for your event, consider DJ Drums. This artist takes top chart tracks and enhances them with his style. He blends transitions and adds beats the way only a great DJ can. You will get everyone on the floor with these pumping dance beats. Let DJ Drum help everyone find their hip swing as they dance through your wedding reception.
Storytelling is often overlooked in today’s society. Joe Castillo has taken this dying art form and revived it with his interpretation. Tell the story of your love in a way no one will forget with Sand Art as Castillo illustrates it in his sand. This artist will create detailed, moving scenes with nothing more than sand and his hands. Some of the best stories are the ones retold. Let your guests experience your fairy tale in an excellent retelling.
There are party bands, and there are orchestras. Why not combine the two? Fill your venue with layers of music that are sure to entertain. Montreal Rhapsody takes the depth of the orchestra and adds the fun, joyful sounds of show choir. They cover popular hits and classics. Your guests will be humming right along with this talented group when they take the floor.
