I wanted to make the annual dinner really special because we had broken all kinds of sales records and everyone was just in a really great mood over it. We always have a dinner where bonuses are handed out and promotions are announced, but they are never entertaining. I wanted to make this one special that way, so I did a search for corporate entertainment UK because I knew that I would not be able to do it on my own. I was able to find a company called Chosen Events, and they were a dream come true for me as far as entertainment is concerned.
There were so many different ways that they provide entertainment. I was looking for mostly a singing act, but they had much more than that. They offer dancers and singers, jugglers, comedians, circus entertainment, and much, much more. As for the singing, there were different types of that too, so I had to look into each one of them to see which one I wanted to get for the dinner. My choices were between a gospel choir, tribute bands and solo singers, and then people dressed up as waiters, police, etc. who surprise people when they start singing.
While I liked the idea of the gospel choir and the surprise singers, I fell in love with the idea of having a tribute band there. There were so many that I was able to choose from. I have always been a fan of older music, and I know that a lot of my work mates are too. I could choose someone like Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin, or I could go a little more current with someone like Eric Clapton or the Rolling Stones. I talked with a few people, and we ended up getting Frank Sinatra. The person singing his songs entertained us so much, and this is going to be a regular thing we do from now on at all of our dinners.
