Event entertainment is a tricky thing to lock in, especially when there are so many options out there. Do you go for something traditional and classic, live, recorded, karaoke, or something out of the ordinary that will get your guests talking? Either way, you want to create an atmosphere everyone will remember. We are very lucky to have Roger Davy – the industry guru from Vavachi Entertainment – tell us a bit about his business and provide some tips about choosing entertainment for your wedding or corporate event.
Tell us a little about you and your business…
As Founder and Managing Director of Vavachi Entertainment, I consider myself fortunate to have been involved in the rewarding world of entertainment for more than 25 years, treading the boards of opera, musical theatre, film and television. As a former member of the internationally acclaimed Ten Tenors and industry exposure over many years performing with State and National Opera companies, I have been fortunate enough to be able to bring together the finest group of performers. At Vavachi, we believe passionately in promoting Queensland’s musical talent and use Vavachi events as a platform for talented young Queensland singers to develop their craft and gain invaluable experience. Some of our performers go on to forge their music careers nationally and internationally. With a vast pool of talent at our fingertips, together with our creative, musical direction and experienced production teams, we are able to create an entertainment package to suit your special requirements. We are perfectionists at Vavachi and will work closely with you to ensure that your event meets all your needs and exceeds your expectations.
Why do you think entertainment is an important part of event?
There are many factors in putting an event together including location, food, atmosphere and of course the all important entertainment. Here are three key factors you need to consider when choosing entertainment.
- When deciding your entertainment, always ensure that it ‘fits’ the event and people attending. For example, a tribute to One Direction or Justin Bieber may be suitable for a corporate family day, but not for a corporate black tie gala or wedding celebration dinner.
- Choosing the right entertainment for your gala dinner or launch can be the ‘value add’ needed that makes your event. For example leaving your guests with a memorable experience reinforces the company’s image, brand and corporate message and can attract publicity (of the good sort!).
- When choosing entertainment always consider your budget. The amount of money you spend can affect the quality of entertainment and options available to you. There are plenty of acts and performers geared towards the corporate entertainment market, ensuring that businesses ‘stand out’. But to get the most out of your corporate entertainment you must make sure that wow factor or unique entertainment idea will impress guests and ensure that the event is talked about. Whether its a wedding or corporate event, Vavachi Entertainment brings together a unique and innovative blend of Music Theatre, Cabaret, Opera, Dance, Circus and Comedy, our performances feature music ranging from the best of Broadway and Opera and Contemporary, tailored to suit your event.
What types of entertainment packages do you offer for weddings?
Having the right kind of entertainment for a wedding is the only way you can keep your guests attuned with the ambience and theme of your special day. The latest trend in wedding music is to have live performances. Bands playing in a wedding reception are not really a novel idea, however live music during the ceremony or during the meal is both new and innovative.
Having a live performance truly plays a significant role in setting the mood for your wedding, thus it is essential that you leave this aspect in the hands of artists like Vavachi Entertainment, who are experts in the field of music and wedding entertainment. With talented vocal performers and instrumentalists from Vavachi to serenade you and your guests all throughout the wedding including String Quartets and Vocal performers, you know your wedding will be always worth remembering. Whether your wedding service or wedding reception will be held inside a church, in your own home, in a beautiful garden or at the park.
One memorable entertainment option for your wedding day is our Surprise by Disguise performance. Ideally suited to fit between pre dinner drinks and formal speakers, the two or three performers create the element of disguise by appearing to be waiters, chefs or even guests. Then at the given moment all is revealed!
We have been lucky enough to have Vavachi Entertainment perform at Branell and even more fortunate to have them feature at our recent Cabin Grand Opening evening. To say our guests were impressed is an understatement. We can highly recommend the services of Roger and his professional team for your next event.
