The popularity of surprise entertainment in the UK has given birth to numerous successful entertainers in this still rather new industry. At the forefront of this vastly growing industry are The Singing Waiters who hail from London, UK.
We asked The Singing Waiters about their secrets for success.
“See it like this”, a spokesperson told our reporter, “a lot of folks who plan a major event such as a wedding or anniversary want to make this day unforgettable for everyone. The want everything perfect and are not afraid to spend good money on things such as flowers or foods and drink”
“Now, people have finally realised that the average wedding band or DJ is not necessarily the best choice there. This is especially important if you realise that the musical entertainment is often the most important thing for such events. In other words, if you have the best entertainment you can get, your wedding, anniversary or birthday is pretty much guaranteed a success!”
Asked what make The Singing Waiters so unique he told us that it’s all about integrating the visitors into the show. “Look, you can have a wedding band play for hours and hours. At the end of the day, everyone goes home and the band, the entire day will be forgotten rather soon. But if you have the folks actively participate in your performance this is an entirely different story.”
“It is always fun for everyone when we pull people up to the stage and have them sing or maybe allow them a go playing an instrument. This is always a lot of fun especially when some of the folks are not exactly sober. So basically, what we’re doing is we’re not just performing, we want everyone be part of the show, singing, dancing and having a lot of fun. I think this is what sets us apart from many other surprise entertainers today”
The strategy sure pays off for The Singing Waiters. Because of its success, the group is now also performing on select cruise ships. Chances are good as well that you will meet some of The Singing Waiters in any of the U.K.’s busy shopping malls and centres where they might perform a flash mob when you least expect it.
