USA Entertainment has received numerous compliments on dueling piano shows booked for weddings including this one below:

 

“It was amazing!!! I wanted I let you know that Michael and Dan put on one of the best dueling piano shows I have ever been a part of! I have seen many dueling pianos in the past, and I was even at a howl at the moon dueling piano bar earlier this week, and the way these two guys interacted with our audience couldn’t compare! From the start…the first song they played, they had us hooked. I was stopped throughout the night by our guests and was told that the dueling piano show was a huge hit. I absolutely would recommend these 2 to anyone for an event. Phenomenal job!!! Thank you!”

Four Mistakes to Avoid When You Book Wedding Entertainment

Posted on May 28, 2015 in Uncategorized  |

Entertainment at your wedding or event is one of the most important aspects. USA Entertainment wants your day to be fun, memorable and stress-free and suggests avoiding the following mistakes when booking wedding entertainment.

Mistake #1. Booking Online- In 2015, booking online may seem like the easiest route to finding great entertainment. However using companies such as Gig Master and Gig Salad to book talent for your very important evening can be a major risk. Booking entertainment online risks the quality and reassurance of a great entertainer at your event. Because these companies have no have no pre-screening process in place, any entertainer can sign up to be listed on these online sites, regardless of experience and talent.   As a result there is is no filter in place to monitor the quality or experience of bands on Gig Master or Gig Salad.

USA Entertainment Agency exists to provide the guests at your event the best entertainment possible.  From dueling pianos, cover and tribute bands, and comedy, USA Entertainment Agency pre-screens talent to ensure your event has the best entertainment available. There is no need to book online, USA Entertainment has a wide variety of entertainers that will have you and your guests laughing, singing, and dancing all evening long.

 

Mistake #2. Booking Unqualified Talent- Just as we warn against hiring talent online, avoid hiring entertainment that is not qualified and experienced enough to put on a great show. Avoid booking unqualified talent by hiring entertainment that has been pre-screened by an agency, such as USA Entertainment. Booking screened talent allows peace of mind for a great, entertaining evening. USA Entertainment places pride in the quality of entertainment we provide. Our clients gush about compliments from guests on the quality of entertainment we provide!

 

Mistake #3. Hiring a DJ to Only Play Music – Entertainment at weddings and parties should be fun, exciting and engaging for your audience. Too often couples hire a DJ with the idea that their sole role is to play music off a list of music.  Great entertainers know how to work a crowd, and make sure that guests are having a great time. Dueling Piano acts booked through USA Entertainment are fun, entertaining, and interactive. A dueling piano show keeps guests entertained and the pianists make a fun, inviting atmosphere. More than just playing music off a list, dueling piano shows are interactive and encourage all audience members to be involved. This is an extremely important aspect to keep in mind as you hire entertainment for your wedding.

 

Mistake #4. Disregarding Lights, Sound and Stage Set-Up- A night could turn quickly if a DJ or band shows up without proper sound and lighting. It’s crucial that entertainment hired is well equipped to create the right sound and lighting at your venue. Because it is assumed that a band or DJ is prepared in this sense, it is an easy detail to overlook. USA Entertainment provides stage, lighting, and sound consulting for all of our clients. We want to make sure your venue is set up properly and that things run smoothly all evening.

Avoid Booking Entertainment Online

Posted on March 13, 2015 in Uncategorized  |  

When planning an important event, maybe a big corporate event with important clients or investors, or a wedding with all of your closest friends and family, every planner is focused on making the day or evening absolutely perfect.  From the food, decorations and booking entertainment, taking the easy route often leads to low quality, and let down expectations.

For those exact reasons, USA Entertainment Agency exists to provide the guests at your event the best entertainment possible.  From dueling pianos, cover and tribute bands, and comedy, USA Entertainment Agency pre-screens talent to ensure your event has the best entertainment available.

For more information about booking with USA Entertainment contact us here or call (319) 846-9336.

Beware Online Entertainment Booking Services

Tailored service and reassurance is a guarantee from USA Entertainment Agency, not so much when you book online.  So why book online and risk the quality and reassurance of a great entertainer at your event?

Online booking services such as Gig Master and Gig Salad have no pre-screening process in place.  Bad and good entertainers alike can sign up to be listed on these online sites.  If a performer chooses, they can pay a fee, create a video, and sign up online with no proof of experience or professionalism.  There is no filter in place to monitor the quality or experience of bands on Gig Master or Gig Salad.

Online booking services are a huge risk that should be avoided when planning an event you want to remember for a lifetime.  Although prices on these online booking sites may seem like a great deal, lower prices often equal lower quality and performance.

USA Entertainment wants to ensure your event is as perfect as you hope for.  We have a wide variety of performers that will make you laugh, sing, and dance all evening long.  If you are planning a wedding, corporate event, party or festival, contact USA Entertainment here or call (319) 846-9336.

David Scott as the Swinger

Posted on December 12, 2014 in Comedy  |  

Sometimes once in awhile an entertainer comes around who defies description. David Scott as the Swinger is just that type of act. Part comedian, magician, impressionist, musical comedian, and all around Las Vegas style showman David Scott as the Swinger is a entertainment experience that has to be seen to understand. David excels in providing audience interactive corporate entertainment as well as casinos, cruises, clubs and fundraisers. He performs a clean show as evidenced by his bookings on Carnival Cruise Lines. His “Most dangerous bit in comedy” is one of the funniest bits out there today and his musical closer is as much fun as you would ever imagine. He has credits to back up his incredible show including HBO, Carnival Cruise Lines, casinos all over the country, major A room clubs, and holds the Guinness Book of World Records for longest continuous stand-up comedy show at over 40 hours.

Internet Entertainment Be Cautious

Posted on November 13, 2014 in Bands/Live Shows, Comedy, Dueling Pianos  |  

usa_entertainment_agency_logo_colorThe internet is a wealth of information. That is good and bad. Many companies look for entertainment on the internet and there are lots of options. One of the things to be careful of are internet entertainment site like Gigmaster, Gigsalad, etc. These sites do not qualify any of the acts that are listed on these sites. ANYONE who will pay the fee to appear on these sites gets access. Many companies believe because an artist is on one of these sites they provide a quality show or a corporate appropriate show. The key to corporate entertainment is to get an act that is appropriate for the audience and is clean enough to do a corporate show. Many acts are geared towards the club market but are not geared for a corporate show. The key is to find a booker that knows the acts, has multiple years of experience booking corporates, and has multiple references. Any company that books entertainment without those pieces in place is running a risk for their company. Typically you can save a little money by buying on-line sight unseen but more often than not these events are not successful.

Hypnotists for Corporate Events

Posted on October 23, 2014 in Comedy  |  

A unique and fun corporate event is to bring in a comedy hypnotist. Companies sometimes shy away from this type of entertainment thinking “our company wouldn’t have people that will go up and be hypnotized”. That is never the case. Being hypnotized is a great experience and good corporate hypnotists will not do anything that a person would be embarrassed about. They actually become part of the show and gain notoriety from being part of the show within the company. The hypnotist should be clean, funny, technically a good hypnotist, and experienced. This makes for a great custom holiday party or sales meeting entertainment. Contact USA Entertainment Agency for more details or call 319-846-9336. dougthypnosisshow

Holiday Parties

Posted on September 5, 2014 in Comedy, Dueling Pianos  |  

There is still time to book entertainment for those holiday parties. Some of the most popular entertainment options are dueling pianos and comedy. If you book these types of entertainment it is critical that you ensure that you will be getting clean, professional entertainment. There are a lot of online booking companies and entertainers who post their clips online who can’t do clean shows or do not provide quality entertainment. Make sure you work with a reputable company to provide your entertainment. These events should be risk free for the event planner. USA Entertainment Agency is one of the companies that can provide this for your event. There are others but do you due diligence to get references and assurances that your event will go off without a hitch

This has resulted in noticeably funnier and more professional shows than what we had with our previous booker. Bottom line - our business is up, our guests are happier, and we are making more money".
