When you think about your upcoming mitzvah and how to make sure it is fun and memorable, it all begins with the initial planning for your event. While your decisions regarding the venue, decor, caterer, photographer and other vendors are important, nothing has a greater impact on the overall success of your event than your choice of entertainment. Think of it as the heart and soul of your party. Having an entertainment company with the right experience with mitzvahs is critical to ensuring the party has great energy from beginning to end.
Playing off Personalities
Atlanta Fever Entertainment goes to considerable lengths to learn about our clients and their overall personalities. Needs and preferences vary from client to client. At Atlanta Fever Entertainment, we put great thought into the best team for each client and their family. We include the MC and DJ as part of the creative team, and they are involved throughout the planning process. This creates a relationship between the MC, DJ and client, and allows the MC and DJ to learn about the client, their ideal party and their likes and dislikes. If the guest of honor is shy, we pick a team that will make them feel at ease and comfortable. On the flip side, if we have a guest of honor that loves the spotlight, we select the team best able to play off of that energy.
Setting the Mood
Through this planning process, we focus on the client’s vision of their event to develop a customized package that will set the best party environment. Atlanta Fever Entertainment offers many options to set the mood, including, but not limited to, choices for dance floor lighting, up lights around the room, light-up dance platforms, large LED TVs, rear-projection screens, live simulcast, color fog machines, live musicians, custom gobos, and so much more. These elements can be combined in different ways to create the perfect atmosphere.
Choosing the Right Music
After selecting the optimal package for your event, the next important decision is your choice of music. As most people know, not everyone has the same taste in music. What you might listen to and enjoy when you are alone or hanging out with friends doesn’t necessarily equate to getting people on the dance floor. This is where the expertise of your entertainment company is so important. Atlanta Fever Entertainment’s MCs and DJs have collectively handled thousands of mitzvahs. They keep up on current music and trends, while maintaining a broad music library to ensure all clients and guests are having a good time. Our clients often ask for suggestions of music that will work for their ideal party. Because Atlanta Fever Entertainment has music expertise, we are able to guide our clients and help them choose what best suits their needs and add their own personal touch to the music. Our DJs and MCs know how to read the crowd and adjust the music selection to generate energy and bring the guests onto the dance floor. Our teams are trained to keep the energy high throughout the event and they know how to engage even the most reluctant guests to get them on the dance floor. It is important to keep in mind that the clients and their families set the tone for their event. If you want guests to dance, then you need to dance.
Keeping the Party Hopping
Whether you have guests that have never attended a mitzvah celebration, or some that have been to many, Atlanta Fever Entertainment’s teams know how to engage them. This might be by teaching them the newest dances, playing games with giveaway prizes, or simply giving them special attention. Many entertainment companies have “dancers,” but not all have party motivators like Atlanta Fever Entertainment has, that know how to keep the party hopping. The lasting impression your guests will have is what a fantastic time they had celebrating with you on the dance floor.
We feel so fortunate to be able to create such joy and happiness for our clients and their guests. The Atlanta Fever Entertainment family cannot think of anything we would rather do than have fun with our clients and their guests!
