Why use an entertainment agency instead of going direct?

Why use an entertainment agency instead of going direct?

Organising a wedding or throwing a successful wedding or party is a feat of incredible organisation, attention to detail and flair. Although it doesn’t always matter what colour décor you opt for, the key areas need to be spot on to ensure guests leave raving about the fantastic time they had, and not sneaking out the side door early. The basis to a fabulous event is getting these basics right: the food, the drink and of course the wedding band or party entertainment. 

There are a plethora of function acts and bands out there, the difficulty is finding a high calibre act who will ensure your wedding or party is unforgettable. A boring wedding band can put even the most active of us to sleep and it isn’t just about technical proficiency, it is also about experience and professionalism. A seasoned performer is able to read the crowd and adapt accordingly, keeping your guests in good spirits all night long. It is important to be able to rely on your act to be completely professional, not to cancel last minute and arrive in good time to sound check, set up and deal with any technical issues which can often arise. Unless you have had the opportunity to see your chosen entertainment live, it can be difficult to tell from a show reel whether or not they will fill this criteria. 

At Toast Functions we work with the highest calibre of acts in Sussex and the surrounding areas, meaning you can rest assured that the quality you see in our show reel is exactly what will turn up to your special event. Our extensive back catalogue means that there is something to suit everyone, from top notch DJs to dreamy string quartets, dazzling magicians to hip shaking motown bands. All of our acts are highly professional and therefore always arrive with time to spare, set up and sound check efficiently and work with your venue and other suppliers to ensure your party goes with a bang. 

Another major benefit of recruiting your entertainment through Toast Functions is our extensive technical knowledge. We know that technology can go wrong at gigs, and therefore it is absolutely vital that the acts we send out are equipped to deal with any problems that may arise. Leaving you stress free so that you can focus on enjoying your special day!
