The Golden Rules When Booking Live Entertainment for Your Event

Tips & Tricks For The Entertainment Buyer

Having worked as a professional magician and mind reader for the past sixteen years, I have seen hundreds if not thousands of venues all over the world. From Boston, where I am based, to Singapore, where I work for a few weeks once per year, and many cities and countries in between. A similarity that crosses all borders is the consistent lack of knowledge the client has when booking live entertainment. This is true for that of a variety type. (e.g magicians, jugglers, clowns, etc.).


Now this can be forgiven (to an extent), as most people have not booked live entertainment before and know absolutely nothing about how the process works. These individuals can be forgiven and kindly instructed by the performer on how the smooth the process can and should be. That said, when you as the entertainer are working through a seasoned booker (e.g someone who works for a company that plans all large and small functions), there is really no excuse for poor booking processes.


After speaking with several performer friends from all areas of entertainment, we have come up with a list of guidelines any future client should be at least familiar with before hiring professional entertainment.


When To Book Live Entertainment


So you want to hire some entertainment for your party, event, graduation, anniversary, etc. Whatever the case may be, you want to spice it up with something live and fun! First thing you should know is that performers of all varieties whether magicians, fire eaters or live bands, need time to prepare their shows. Most of us specially design our performances around your event, and this does take some time and will go into the price of the performance. You will want to give at least 3-4 weeks notice to a performer before booking. This is my suggested time frame for me, other performers require much earlier notice, and some can take an event with just a couple days notice. It depends on our schedules, current bookings and flexibility and of course, the performer himself (or herself). Our schedules are very strange, and totally non-traditional - we can have gigs at all hours of the day, night, and even into the very early mornings. Please Note: If you call a performer a day or two, or three, or even four before your event, they will most likely charge a little more for the short notice. It takes time to make your event special, whether by creating custom routines as I do, setting up a music set list, or getting required licenses or permits for more dangerous acts like fire eating and sideshow stunts.


What Are You Looking For


Hiring entertainment for your event can really enhance your guests' experience. Whether it's a live band, DJ, caricaturist, or magician, live performances create a truly unique experience that your guests will share with their friends and families when they leave. You want to determine what kind of entertainment best suits your particular event. For example: If you're getting married at a golf resort. With 200 guests and a traditional setup (cocktail hour, plated dinner, speeches, dancing, etc.), then you will want to determine where and when entertainment makes sense. If you're interested in magic or mind reading, which is very popular at weddings, then you would be best to place it into the cocktail reception for what is called "strolling" or "walk-around." This is where the performer wanders through your cocktail hour performing small, up close effects and routines for small groups of guests. This offers a personal experience you sometimes lose with a full length show. It also breaks up the occasional repetitiveness of such portions of the event. Magic, mind reading or a little light music can really make a difference. Have an idea of what you want, lay out your event, and see where it makes the most sense. Maybe a full length comedy mind reading show after a three day corporate retreat? Or perhaps you're celebrating your child's birthday and want some entertainment to keep all the little guests entertained? A children's magic and balloon show is a perfect fit here. Look into my other article on Magic & Mind Reading for Adults vs. Magic for Children, for more detailed information.


Determine Your Budget


This is by far one of the most important points a soon-to-be entertainment buyer must understand. It should be known that every performer, no matter what persuasion, charges differently. A fire eater will charge differently from a juggler or clown. A mentalist will charge differently from a magician or stilt walker. This is based on how they value their time and expertise.


Have at least a rough idea on what you're looking to spend on entertainment. Do not be afraid to ask a performer if he or she can work within your budget. Be realistic about it and think about your event and the kind of image that you want your guests to take home with them, and try to get a rough idea on what you would be willing to spend achieve that image. You will not insult us with your budget. We will just say no politely or even recommend someone who could better work within your financial parameters.


Entertainers usually know each other and bounce work around quite a bit. We almost always know what our friends and competitors charge. The more unique the performance style, the smaller number of performers. If you have $200 for a full length hypnosis performance, you may want to look into another form of entertainment. Most hypnotists don't leave home for less than triple that amount. If you have $5,000 for entertainment, then you're in a whole new bracket of entertainers. More on that later.


Details, Details, Details


Now you know what you want. The next thing to do is get your details together. These include the following in order of importance for the performer to know:


1. Date of the Event


2. Time You Want The Entertainer To Arrive & To Begin Performing


3. Type of Event (birthday, corporate lunch, trade show, etc.)


4. What You Want From The Entertainer in Detail


5. Budget!


6. How Many Guests You're Expecting


7. Description of the Venue (indoors, outdoors, theater style seating, tables, etc.)


8. Will There Be Other Entertainment (what kind, how long, etc.)


9. Have All Of Your Info Available (phone number, email, mailing address, etc.)


Having this information ready when you call an entertainer will make your booking process go much, much smoother and usually result in only one, maybe two phone calls or emails. Missing information does happen. Maybe you don't have your venue nailed down yet? No problem, try to give us a rough idea of where you're looking so we know how to prepare. If you're thinking a typically busy, dark restaurant but then go for a show at the beach, in the sun, with wind... This will be a little frustrating for the entertainer.


Know Your Venue


As stated above, the venue is very important. To most of us, we can perform practically anywhere (within reason). I've worked on moving boats, trains, and even on a private jet. Some of us who work with dangerous items, such as sword swallowers or fire breathers, require very specific environments in which to work safely for themselves and the guests in attendance.


Let's look at a few examples of common venue locations for a mentalist or magician:


1. The Country Club - always a popular location for a little walk around magic/mind reading or even a full length performance. Usually everyone is well-dressed, having formal meals, and looking for a more sophisticated form of entertainment. This is not the best place for a chainsaw juggler.


2. The Nightclub - usually dedicated to bachelor/bachelorette parties, adult birthdays, company buy-outs, holiday parties and practically any event you'd book to have some serious fun! Usually it is very loud, crowded, and drinks are flowing. This is not the best time to have a palm reader or full length magic show. Instead you could opt for some strolling entertainment, live music, or even a dance group.


3. Your Residence - Probably the most common location for family events, graduations, anniversaries and private holiday parties. You won't normally see a lot of craziness as you would in the nightclub. Such events are normally filled with family members, friends and children. Everyone knows each other, is very comfortable and is not scared of being a little silly from time to time. A great time for a hypnotist! Or even personal tarot readings. Definitely a great time for a mind reading performance.


The point is to use your venue to its absolute potential. Play out the scenario in your head with the entertainment you have in mind. If it seems like it could work, go for it. Chances are you're right!


Price Shopping


As performers we all work insanely hard to provide the absolute best entertainment for the best possible value. Our prices are all different, but with variations based on what we offer, where we live, how much equipment we have to transport, etc. Customers should know that there is A LOT more that goes into the booking on our end then you might think. This can include organizing our material, writing up contracts, invoices, and riders, getting to and from the gig; setting up; tearing down; packing at home; unpacking at home; re-setting our equipment; writing emails; making phone calls; updating schedules and social media; and more. What the customer sees is a small portion of the work performers do for a single booking. All of that goes into our fees as well. Please keep this in mind if you live in northern Maine and you really want the face painter from New Jersey at your party.


That said, price shopping does not mean you will get the best show for the lowest price. Also, the highest price artist out there is not necessarily better than the one who charges half or more less than that. Your selection should be based on recommendations, referrals, skill-set, and your budget. Not everyone can afford to book Aerosmith. For example; say you are hiring a children's magician for a birthday party. In New England, the rough booking fees range between $275 and $500 for an hour long show, with the ability to have add-ons like balloon animals, teach-a-trick, or magic goody bags. If you're getting offers at $100 or even Less! you should seriously consider what you're getting. Watch videos, call past clients, check the quality of their website, marketing materials, etc.. Do your homework! You wouldn't by 100 pairs of socks for $1.00 would you?


Referrals VS Resume


This can be a tricky section for a buyer. A lot of entertainers, especially when they're just starting out tend to fluff their resumes with big name clients to draw attention. In many cases they're not totally accurate. That doesn't mean they're not good performers, they're just trying to get some business. Then again, a lot of professionals out there have very thick resumes that are all 100% legit. You can usually tell from observation who's on the level and who isn't.


The best way you can make a decision is through referrals, testimonials, video demonstrations and reviews. Any magician or mentalist worth his salt will post a video of a portion of his show, as a teaser. This is the hardest hitting material that makes the audience go wild. I would be leery of a performer who didn't have at least some kind of video, even a poor-quality one. It's 2014 after all; most of us have cameras in our phones that shoot better than handheld cameras just a few years earlier.


I've found that the best way I book events is through word-of-mouth and my website with a link to my YouTube channel.


Actual VS Perceived Value


Like referrals vs. resume this can be a tricky section to explain correctly. As a quick definition, the actual value of a performer is connected to the following: his or her performance quality, attitude (courteous, respectful of clients needs, friendly without being annoyingly friendly or overly familiar, etc.), dress sense/style, and uniqueness of the performance. Now these are just examples and include quite a few other points that you'll notice after you hire entertainment. Notice how price was not a part of the actual value. The fee a performer requires for the event is based around the points I made above in point 6. You will not know the actual value of your performer until you've hired him or her to perform. Now, perceived value is what we do when we look at the artists' website, bio, pictures, videos, social media pages, etc. We determine if we like them within the first minute - or usually a lot sooner.


It should be known that the perceived value can absolutely work against you. There are performers out there who spend thousands of dollars on top quality websites, advertising materials, search engine optimization, and promotional videos, but when you see them live, you are quickly hit with just how bad they are. This happens quite a bit, especially amongst the younger generation of performers. Video editing software and the right person behind the keyboard can make anyone look amazing. Do not let the perceived value of a performer determine whether or not you want to book them. Use that information as a reference to what you can probably (not always) expect when the show begins. Focus on referrals, reviews (from real people), media write-ups, and recommendations from friends or family that may have booked entertainment in the past. The best advertising for a performer is word-of-mouth!


Free Work VS Donated Work


Ask any performer how many times they're offered "great publicity" in exchange for performing for free. It happens to all of us, a lot. I personally am asked to perform for free at least once a week. Nine times out ten I have to decline the event. Entertainers who are starting out may take the booking even though it doesn't pay. They're looking for "flight-time" or time in front of a real audience to practice, rehearse material and get comfortable in their field. This is perfectly acceptable and should be encouraged to young or new performers. However, a professional entertainer, be it a magician, mentalist, juggler or human blockhead, will probably not take a free show in exchange for an ad in the magazine, free publicity, or free food.


Almost all of us entertain as a full-time job. We work solely as performers and we expect to be paid for our time, just as you expect to be paid where you work. You will probably insult a performer if you offer publicity in exchange for money they'd use to pay bills and buy food. After all, you found us so the publicity is already working right?


Now when it comes to donated work, it's a much different story. At least for me. Please be aware I am not speaking for ALL performers working. Everyone is different and structures his business differently. Some performers will probably not agree with things in this article and it's totally fine! Donating our time to a cause is something in which a lot of us take great pride. Every year I donate at least 10 hours of performing to various charities around New England. These are ones that are very close to me, such as The American Cancer Society, Horizons for Homeless Children and The American Red Cross. I love giving my time to these organizations and being a small part of making a difference. We entertainers are all full of emotion and big hearts and we love to see the expression of happiness on people's faces who otherwise would be sad or in pain.


Be aware of your situation when offering an event to a performer for very little or no money. If it's a cause that we believe in and we can spare the time on our schedules, we will jump at the chance. If not, please do not take it personally and understand we need to work and earn as much as possible in order to keep providing entrainment to people around the world.


Contracts, Invoices, Agreements, Riders


The boring details of the booking process, lots of invoices, contracts and specifications that almost every performer requires are vital to the quality of the performance. Contracts are absolutely essential for a performer to have, and we will use them for the smallest to the largest event. Most of us have had the experience of "being burned" on bookings because we didn't have an agreement in place. We learn quickly (well most of us do) and adopt the contract policy to ALL bookings, even donated time bookings. Do not take offense if your children's magician requires a contract for his performance.


Most of us keep very detailed records of every gig we work. Invoices, contracts and emails are all essential pieces of material for our tax purposes, marketing strategies, and general peace of mind. I personally require a contract, invoice and performance rider for my shows. Most of the points in my agreements do not apply to every single show. However, a lot of the time they do. If we ask for a table or access to plugs, that the windows be closed, or that we're in the shade if outdoors, understand these are important factors that will go into the quality of our performances. We can usually perform in most places under most conditions, but some entertainers can not be indoors without proper licensing (such as people who work with fire or dangerous objects) or outdoors without a tent or waterproof area. Basically, it's common sense. The DJ you hired for your daughter's wedding will not want to work in the middle of the sun for five hours with hundreds of feet of extension cords running all over your event. Plan accordingly and your event will be a huge success!


Understanding What You're Paying For


I know I have covered this in earlier points but it is very important to understand what you're actually paying for when booking a performer. Remember we spend years and years perfecting our skills to make them look flawless when showtime comes. Some of us live far away from your venue and have to travel quite a distance to get to the gig. I personally drive about 35,000 miles a year just for performances, and fly about 40,000. We spend a lot of our time in airports, cars and traffic! Our fees are constructed by us based on what we believe our performances are worth. This includes the years of practice, travel to and from the event, all the work we do before the show itself, what kind of event it is, and how popular and in demand we are. Cheaper does NOT mean better!


Paying Your Entertainer(s)


I would say I've waited probably two years' worth of days on being paid for some events. That does not happen anymore. It is not acceptable to make a performer wait longer than the agreed upon time of payment. As I said before, we are full time entertainers and expect to be paid before or immediately after we perform. Our shows are all one-of-a-kind demonstrations and no show is the same (at least as a mentalist). So what you're getting is a totally unique experience. A good way of looking at it is this: If you worked for a week straight and your boss said "Sorry, but would it be okay if we paid you in three weeks for this week?" You would probably lose your sh*t. That is exactly how we feel when we have to wait for payment for our services. We arrived on time, performed, and were professional, and we expect to be paid accordingly.


It is customary to pay an entertainer prior to the start of the performance. Most of us require a deposit of some kind along with our contract or invoice signed. Those who don't require a deposit (well, they should) should be paid in full on the day of the event. Please be aware of this when hiring entertainment for your next party. Not only will your performer thank you kindly, he or she will be sure to make your event a huge success.


Tipping: Gratuity for a performer, DJ, or artist lets us know you really enjoyed our work. We do not factor gratuity into our fees (at least I and my friends don't) so any extra tip you have for us will be greatly appreciated. Don't be afraid of what to give for a tip - we are grateful you thought of it at all. Most people don't usually think to tip entertainment, so when it comes we are always very happy. This is especially important amongst entertainers you didn't book, like street performers and carnival or fair artists. Most of them accept tips and some get paid ONLY in tips. Keep that in mind after you watch the street performers in Fanueil Hall in Boston during the spring and summer months.


That should give you a pretty good understanding on how to go about booking live entertainment for your next event. Remember, not all of these points are followed by every performer and some will require things not listed here. If you like them, and they have great references, work with them and you will have the best event possible.

The Death Of 10 TIPS FOR BOOKING ENTERTAINMENT FOR A CORPORATE EVENT And How To Avoid It

10 Tips for Booking Entertainment for a Corporate Event

Finding entertainment for a corporate convention, holiday party or convention can seem like an overwhelming task. There are literally thousands of excellent, good and downright awful corporate entertainment available. This list will give you some tips on narrowing your search and finding entertainment that will help make your event a success!

#10 - Plan early. Most popular corporate entertainment books up very quickly for popular dates. Entertainers can start booking more than a year in advance during the corporate holiday party season (November-January). Avoid despair and start looking for entertainment as soon as you know the date of your corporate event.

#9 - Comprehend what you really want (and even more basically, what your group needs). If you have an idea of what type of entertainment will work best for your group, you can make your search for an entertainer easier. Popular corporate entertainment includes:

Parody - Satire acts can be an incredible method for getting your gathering snickering together. Satire acts don't need to be simply professional comics. Many corporate comedy acts mix magic, juggling or other variety performances into their comedy shows. This diversity helps to ensure that there is something for everyone on display.

No matter what type of comedy act you choose, make sure the humor will suit your group. Various performers have different considerations of what "clean parody" is, so make sure to demand a demo video to see the show (see #1 underneath!).

Music - Many prominent singers and bands are available for corporate events.

Magic - There are different styles of corporate magicians and corporate magic shows. Some magicians perform roving magic (moving from table to table at your event), some perform grand illusions with special effects and a cast of dancers, while others specialize in comic magic that gets your audience laughing. Whatever style of corporate entertainment you are looking for, make sure you find a magician who specializes in that style. There are magicians who do everything you would say - illusion, comedy, twirls, but that's because they don't specialize in any particular genre, so all their shows are usually mediocre. For the best possible performance, hire a professional corporate magician who specializes in magic. These artists will be the best at illusion, joke or sleight of hand because that's what they do.

Entrancing - Hypnotherapists can be perfect for the right gathering. Hypnotist shows are very interactive and require a very outgoing and uninhibited group to be truly successful.

#8 - Book straightforwardly with the performer to set aside cash and migraines. Assuming you book your corporate amusement straightforwardly through the performer, you'll get a good deal on diversion. Most corporate entertainment agencies add an additional 15-35% to the entertainer's fee. By booking a corporate entertainer directly, you also have the advantage of being able to speak with the entertainer (or their office staff) about any questions or concerns you may have. Most corporate diversion organizations won't allow you to address the performer until the day of the show. By booking direct, you can be sure that there is no misinformation about performances. You can find direct contact information for entertainers by searching the Internet for "corporate entertainers," "California comedians," etc.

#7 - Plan a realistic budget. The familiar axiom, "The end product will usually reflect its price", applies to amusement also. Entertainment is not the place to save a few dollars. You should never cut back on the food you feed your guests and you should never cut back on the entertainment. Awful diversion can demolish an occasion similarly as fast as terrible food. You will not be able to get good quality corporate entertainment for $400 per show. For a high quality, professional corporate entertainment fee ranges from $1500 - $100,000+ depending on the size of the show and the experience and reputation of the performer.

#6 - Experience the artist. You want a corporate entertainer who primarily entertains a corporate audience. Don't be afraid to ask questions... Is the artist a full time entertainer? Have they performed at shows like yours in the past? Do they have letters of recommendation and reviews from previous clients for you to read?

#5 - If you have a special request....Ask! Many entertainers are happy to adapt parts of their performances for your event. If you have a special request in mind, be sure to discuss it with the artist at the time of booking.

#4 - Discuss set-up requirements before booking. Set-up requirements vary widely for entertainers. One may perform in the corner of a room with only a microphone, some require a minimal stage area and special sound and lighting arrangements. Be sure your venue will be able to accommodate your entertainer's set-up needs prior to booking.

#3 – Leave your guests wanting more. 90 minutes of entertainment may sound like a good idea when you're planning your corporate event, but most audiences don't want to sit through a 90-minute show. A long show does not equal a good show. Even the world's top comedians and entertainers (Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, etc.) only do 60-75 minute shows. Capable entertainers and corporate event coordinators agree that a nice length for most corporate live redirection is 35-50 minutes. It's always better to leave your audience excited and wanting more than to tire them out and watch them watch.

#2- Know what the fee includes.  Many entertainers include travel costs in their performance fees and for some travel will be an additional expense. Make sure your quoted fee includes what's included to avoid any unexpected (and potentially expensive!) surprises.

#1 – Most Important – Always ask to see a demo video. A demo video is the only way you can really judge whether a corporate entertainer will be a good fit for your company party. Demo videos should be brief previews of segments from an entertainer's show Videos should be shot in front of a live audience so you can see how real viewers react to the show If an entertainer's video is nothing more than another clip set to music and flashy graphics, they're probably trying to cover up for an inadequate performance - or worse, it could mean they've never performed in front of a real audience.

How I Improved My COLLECTION OF MOVIE POSTERS

The Secret of Successful COLLECTION OF MOVIE POSTERS

There is a great deal of history behind movie posters and movie poster collection. Jules Cheree, who created two movie posters in the 1890s, was the artist credited with creating the first movie posters. By the end of the 2000s, films had become a major source of public entertainment. During this period, the movie poster will become a standard size known as a single sheet of 27" x 41".

In the early days, actors' names weren't on the labels, which movie studios liked because it meant actors had to pay less money. However, during this early period in film history, film studios realized that movie stars were more attracted to moviegoers than the movie itself. Thus the movie star was born, and movie posters began showing the names of the actors along with the movie title.

In the 1920s, the golden age of silent films, movie posters became more artistic and exciting, with skilled artists employed by film studios to paint portraits of stars for posters. In the late 1920s, movie poster images became more visible due to a new printing process developed by Morgan Litho.

In the 1930s, also known in the film industry as the "Golden Age of Film", another style of movie poster was created, the half-sheet. Big movies can sometimes have more than one of the two styles. However, due to the depression, many film materials were made cheaper, which caused quality loss in film posters.

When World War II began in 1941, many movie stars were turning to war, and war was the main theme of films at the time. The film industry reduced advertising costs and used cheaper paper for posters due to wartime paper shortages.

In the 1970s, movie posters used photography, sometimes with drawing and painting methods. Movie posters at this time were printed on clay-coated paper, giving them a glossy finish. Star Wars and Star Trek stickers were the most popular stickers at the time and many still collect them today.

In the 1980s, the boom period of special effects, the small paper was invented and video stores became popular, thus the video store poster was created. Today, movie poster printing is mass-produced and sold in many stores or just a click away on the Internet. 

There are several types of movie posters. Due to their rarity, a passionate movie poster collector has focused on movie posters or theatrical art. These are posters that are delivered and shown in theatres and then discarded. Another type of movie poster is the commercial poster, which is mass-produced for direct sale to the public. Video posters are distributed to video rental stores for promotional materials. Cable and TV posters are used as promotional materials for television stations for their programmes. 

Like theatre art, video posters, cable and television posters are not produced for the public. Although not as valuable as theatre art, these types of posters are still popular with collectors. Special promotional posters promote a movie with a product. Finally, there are the anniversary numbers, limited editions, and special editions that are published in limited quantities and are gaining traction with the theatrical art collector. 

Other types of movie posters include pre-made posters that promote the movie well before the movie's release. Award poster indicating that the film won an Academy Award. A composite poster that advertises two films instead of just one. The popular double-sided poster that has art on both sides, with the artwork reversed on one side of the poster. There are featured posters highlighting short films or animations, review posters for when the film gets a good review, series posters for movie series, and special distribution posters.

With the popularity of movie posters, the necessity of creating posters of different sizes has emerged. The first and most commonly used poster is the single sheet, usually measuring 27 x 41. The metro, also known as two sheets, is larger, but not exactly twice the size of one sheet. 3 sheets are three times the size of the single sheet and measure 41" x 81". The six sheets are six times the size of a single sheet of 81" x 81". There are also 12 sheets that are about twelve times the size of one sheet, and the Mega sheet 24 that measures 246 x 108. Other sizes include the mini sheet, which is usually much smaller than a single sheet and comes in different sizes, and the stock newspaper issued for cartoons or pants other short.

As with all collectibles, condition is a big factor when placing value on labels. The movie poster's value is determined by order, rarity and condition. Poster collectors use the same grading system as comics collectors: mint (perfect), near mint, very good, good, fair and poor.

For those who want to be serious movie poster collectors, there are a few things you need to know about taking care of your movie poster art.

Tips for preserving the overall collectible value of movie posters

Never change the appearance of the label. Do not fold, bend, tear or punch holes in it, not even to hang it on the wall.

Never place a movie poster in direct sunlight. Ultraviolet rays can also be harmful.

Do not write on your label, not even on the back. The marks on the back can sometimes be seen from the other side, which takes away the value of the label.

Never put masking tape on the front of a label, even to repair tears. If you are using masking tape, use acid-free tape available at an art store and apply the tape to the back. For expensive film art, take it to a professional to have it restored. Posters can be restored in the same way as professionally rare comics.

When shipping labels, use thick label tubes or bubble wrap.

For long-term storage, place the frame or poster in a plastic bag or tube and store in a cool, dry climate.

When framing the poster, do not lay it dry, and use an acid-free backing.

Now that you know more about movie posters and movie poster collecting, start collecting!

Cartoons allow you to engage with a sensitive topic in a way that makes people laugh for 5 seconds and think for 5 minutes. Non-threatening, as the animation is open to interpretation."

Cartoons are universal and break down language and cultural barriers. The site is translated into Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian and Thai. French, German and Spanish languages ​​will be available online soon. People all over the world can now learn how to be sure of their own destiny.
