3 Unusual Types of Live Entertainment for Your Party

Throwing parties has become something akin to a competitive sport lately since everyone seems to be ramping up what other people do at their parties.  The thing is, you don’t have to have tee-shirt bazookas or a pool with sharks in it to throw a memorable party.  Instead of extravagant, focus on unique and exciting.

Live entertainment is fantastic because it mixes in a human element, which is unpredictable, along with incredible skill.  Here are three types of live entertainment that you can use to kick your party up a level without literally setting the roof on fire.

Impersonators

When’s the last time you heard about Elvis showing up at a party?  Probably not since the 80s, outside of weird tabloids, but if you find an Elvis impersonator, you can say he was at your party!  Impersonators have a fantastic range of talent, from having to be good at improvising to transform their entire persona to match a character or person.

These entertainers were in hot demand in the 90s, but have been nearly forgotten about.  Having them at your party helps revitalize this industry and do something trending and new that will keep people talking for months or years.

They work for every single party, depending on who they’re impersonating.  You could have a Tom Cruise impersonator at your bachelorette party, or a Marilyn Monroe impersonator at your engagement party.  Think about who would work for your event, and there’s going to be an impersonator to fill that role!

Trapeze Artists

These entertainers are incredibly skilled at getting your blood pumping and making their audiences gasp and cheer.  Although their setup can be kind of wild, your guests will have never been to a party with them before.  They won’t be able to take their eyes off the performers, and your party will go wild on social media and word of mouth.

This option isn’t an entertainer type that many people think of, and because of that, there’s something incredible and unique about them.  People will associate you with the feeling of their heart skipping a beat watching incredible feats, and it will help with your social image.

Fire Dancers

Do you want drama and upped pulses?  This entertainer is where to find them.  Fire dancers are highly skilled professionals who know how to turn heads and keep all eyes glued on them.  This severe difficulty doesn’t mean that they can’t have fun with it!  Many offer custom shows for birthdays and engagements, and their ability to work with fire will make people’s minds and hearts race with excitement.  They had a big comeback in the early 2000s, but since then have been mostly forgotten about in popular culture.

Having them at your party will lend a nostalgic feeling while also pushing your party towards a unique feel.

Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of what’s normal for a party!  You can take chances, raise pulses and eyebrows, and make your party memorable.  It’s not hard to do, as long as you hire the right entertainmen
