Bands & Live Acts

I was very impressed with the girls on this week’s Dragon’s Den who pitched their unusual entertainments business D4M Entertainment (Dance 4 Me Entertainment). They were one of only two hopefuls to get the Dragon’s backing and rightly so. They have put together a portfolio of acts which can be hired for entertainment and with the right guidance I think their comapny will be extremely successful.  The girls pitched their company to the Dragons with an emphasis towards corporate functions but a quick look on their website and you will see they also cater for themed events and wedding entertainment.

If you missed the show then you can see in the above image two of acts that could be hired for some unusual wedding entertainment.  The girls used their ‘talking tree’ and ‘meet and greet drink table’ as examples in their pitch to the Dragons but there are many other unusual acts in theor portfolio including stilt walkers and living statues.  These types of acts are not going to replace your reception disco, live band, or string quartet but if you have the budget to spare then it is this type of novelty background entertainment that will make your wedding event one that everyone will remember.

Wedding HarpistIf you are looking for a romantic and sophisticated way to entertain your guests at your wedding, how about hiring a harpist.  You’ll be in extremely good company if you hire Jemima Phillips, since she was the only musician invited to play at Charles and Camilla’s wedding reception.  If you’re not sure what sort of thing to expect, she has a CD entitled The Royal Harpist which is available from her website along with some glowing recommendations and reviews, including a letter from Prince Charles himself.  Now as recommendations go, you don’t get much better than that!
