Almost anyone, if they plan a wedding or a similar large event will at a some point need to think about the musical entertainment during the event.
By and large, most people will hire a DJ or a live band for that purpose. I am not saying this is necessarily a bad idea, but it’s sure not the most creative thing to do since pretty much anyone does it like that.
Some people want to do something better. They are not really keen on having some average local band playing at their wedding. Maybe you plan a very classy wedding and would like professional singers and dancers who can well woo your guests with a performance of Opera arias or classy tunes from a musical.
Or, if you want something truly special for your wedding you might want to think about what’s known as “surprise entertainment”, where your alleged waiters or other staff will magically turn into the best musical entertainers to the surprise of all your guests!
With surprise entertainment like with the UK’s singing waiters who an perform for your wedding or reception you can sure make a lasting impression on anyone! And isn’t this exactly what a wedding should be about? An event which will turn out so fantastic that people will remember it for many years to come! Rest assured, no-one will remember some average local band in a month or two, but your guests will never forget the singing waiters. You can take my word for it because I saw them performing a couple of time and was just entirely blown away!
There are two ways to book the singing waiters. You can book them for their normal show which normally lasts about two hours. In this cane you can arrange a good time when they will reveal the true identity to start performing. But you can also book the singing waiters to provide for you your entire day’s or night’s musical entertainment and of course with a combination of their surprise performance at a certain time as well.
Many ask me on a weekly basis about tips for their job search in the music and entertainment industry. I met a lot of people who just came from renowned schools for arts and media where they graduated, people who are now looking to get into the studios, film production and many other movie and entertainment related fields in the UK.
Apprenticeships in the UK
At first you need to to know that this career path, while definitely appealing is certainly not the easiest career you can choose.
Not only will it involve lengthy studies and hard, dedicated work. It can also mean having to travel often and flexible hours.
For some this is perfect, for others it may not be what they want.
Getting into the established movie and entertainment companies in the UK, hoping to get hired right after school can be extremely difficult.
I always tell those who ask me to go the route of taking on an apprenticeship first and then look from there.
With apprenticeships in the UK for media and broadcast you can get a lot of first-hand experience of the field. This will be invaluable to get an idea about this industry. An apprenticeship in this field along with the real experience you have gotten during your apprenticeship will also look fantastic on your CV! With it you can greatly increase your chances to get hired!
I recommend apprenticeships not only if you want to get into the UK’s music, film and entertainment industry but they can be very helpful for pretty much any field. With those IT apprenticeships you can also increase your chances to get hired tremendously, just to name one other career path. Some trades in the UK actually require that you take an apprenticeship first since certain skills and qualifications need to be learned first.
The good thing is that with dedicated websites that provide a search for apprenticeships in the UK fresh graduates can search for and find apprenticeships very easily. This is also something I can recommend to anyone who looks to get into this career!
