Entertainment is a very important aspect of event planning.  Adding some sort of entertainment whether it is a band, DJ, comedian, or emcee can really enhance your event.

For certain events such as a corporate retreat or team building exercise, where entertainment is not as common, hiring a performer can really liven up the event and break up the monotony.

Entertainers are a great resource for any serious event planner.

While entertainers can be a nice luxury for some events, some form of entertainment is absolutely mandatory when planning other social functions.  For example if you are planning a wedding you are going to need some form of entertainment, typically a band or DJ.  Also, if you are planning a child’s birthday party hiring a clown or magician is always a good idea to help entertain the kids in attendance.

Deciding what type of entertainer you need really depends on the type of event you are planning.  For serious events you may want to think about including a cocktail hour and having a classical band there or DJ playing some nice dinner music.  For more laid back events a comedian or magician could be excellent compliments to the rest of the event’s planned activities.
