Superstar Event Planner, Juliet Shenderey, gives her top tips on how to book that perfect party entertainment for any upcoming Bar or Bat Mitzvahs.
A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a real time for families to come together and celebrate, so you want to honour it in style.
To make the event memorable and meaningful, you need to book the right entertainment for the day, an entertainer or performer to put on a show for fun and enjoyment, and to mark your special occasion. But with so many types of entertainers, styles of performer, and different budgets to consider, where do you start?
Thanks to our decades’ organising Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, at Shenderey Events we’ve gathered tips and tricks for booking entertainment that are memorable for all the right reasons.
Understand your audience
The guests at your Bar or Bat Mitzvah are, naturally, going to range quite widely in age. So, it’s key to find entertainment that suits both your elderly relatives and the younger generation. Consider the kind of entertainment that works for all groups, perhaps mixing up ideas and types of entertainment to make sure there’s something for everyone. Think traditional musicians and singers, followed by a magician and circus performer! Of course, if you’re not sure, ask family and friends what they would enjoy. Ultimately, you want all of your guests to have a great time, so find out what kind of entertainment suits their style.
Think about your theme
A beautifully-branded Bar or Bat Mitzvah needs the right entertainment to match. So think carefully about whether your choice of performer matches the mood you want to create.
An elegant, beautiful Oscar-style luxe celebration suits a classical musician to set the tone for the event. On the other hand, a fun, sports-themed style can accommodate some louder, more lively showcase entertainment. It’s all part of a great guest experience where the event meets, then exceeds, expectations – creating the right atmosphere from invitation to entertainer.
Manage your budgets
You may have found your dream band but blowing the budget on paying for them is only going to cause worry and stress. Instead, think carefully about what you can afford.
Perhaps there’s another singer you can book who’ll get the party started in the same way? Or, if your heart’s set on a particular entertainer, look at where else you can make savings in order to spend on the things that really matter to you. Then, you’ll enjoy your day even more without worrying about overspending.
Ask for advice
With such a wide variety of options to choose from, it can be tricky to know where to start. You can search endless Google reviews, hunt down social media recommendations, or even gather top tips from family and friends. But it’s here where the help of an expert really pays.
