Guidelines & Tricks For The Leisure Buyer
Having worked as a professional magician and mind reader for the past sixteen years, I have seen hundreds if not thousands of venues all over the world. From Boston, where I am based, to Singapore, where I work for a few weeks once per year, and many cities and countries in between. A similarity that crosses all borders is the consistent lack of knowledge the client has when booking are living amusement. This is true for that of a variety type. (e.g magicians, jugglers, clowns, etc.).
Now this can be forgiven (to an extent), as most people have not booked reside leisure before and know absolutely nothing about how the process works. These individuals can be forgiven and kindly instructed by the performer on how the smooth the process can and should be. That said, when you as the entertainer are working through a seasoned booker (e.g someone who works for a company that plans all large and small functions), there is really no excuse for poor booking processes.
After speaking with several performer friends from all areas of entertainment, we have come up with a list of guidelines any future client should be at least familiar with before hiring professional leisure.
When To Book Are living Entertainment
So you want to hire some enjoyment for your personal party, occasion, graduation, anniversary, etc. Whatever the case may be, you want to spice it up with something reside and fun! First thing you should know is that performers of all varieties whether magicians, fire eaters or stay bands, need time to prepare their shows. Most of us specially design our performances around your occasion, and this does take some time and will go into the price of the performance. You will want to give at least 3-4 weeks notice to a performer before reserving. This is my suggested time frame for me, other performers require much earlier notice, and some can take an occasion with just a couple days notice. It depends on our schedules, current bookings and flexibility and of course, the performer himself (or herself). Our schedules are very strange, and totally non-traditional – we can have gigs at all hours of the day, night, and even into the very early mornings. Please Note: If you call a performer a day or two, or three, or even four before your party, they will most likely charge a little more for the short notice. It takes time to make your event special, whether by creating custom routines as I do, setting up a music set list, or getting required licenses or permits for more dangerous acts like fire eating and sideshow stunts.
