The Rat Pack
The Rat Pack music is a timeless classic, who can resist Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and Frank Sinatra? Of course you won’t get the real thing, but nowadays there are some outstanding Rat Pack tribute acts that have incredible vocal and are pitch perfect. The classic songs such as ‘Come Fly with Me’ and ‘That’s Life’ are bound to get your guests dancing and screaming at the top of their lungs. Swing music is perfect for any wedding, you could even pair it with a big band and some show girls to really set your wedding entertainment apart. The fact is, when The Rat Pack are concerned, everyone is going to be happy, I believe that is physically impossible not to at least tap your foot along to one of their classic. This tribute act is perfect for almost any wedding, as long as you have a dance floor to fill then you and your guest will be in for a good night with the beautiful sounds of swing.
No one can resist the charm and charisma of Robbie Williams and any good tribute act will share the same charismatic qualities of the man himself. The beauty of hiring a Robbie Williams tribute act is the variety of music that comes with it. His genre of music ranges from pop to rock to swing so essentially this tribute act is almost a three for the price of one deal. This act will appeal to younger and older guests alike and you will find everyone singing along to Robbie William hits. From ‘Angels’ to ‘Let Me Entertain You’ your wedding guests will be truly entertained as a true Robbie Williams tribute act will put on an exciting and lively show.
The Blues Brothers
The Blues Brothers are a fantastic tribute act, they have everything you want for wedding entertainment, they are fun, you can dance to it and they appeal to all audiences. A good Blues Brothers act doesn’t take themselves seriously, and can be bundles of fun to have as your wedding entertainment. Most people know the music whether they realise it or not and you can’t help but sing along to the lively blues music. The comical factor to this tribute act adds to the entertainment value and I can guarantee that this act will have you laughing, dancing and singing. The Blues Brothers is best suited to small wedding whose bride and groom just fancy a good old knees up reception rather than a bride and groom who are looking for a classy event.
Do your research
It is important not to just get the first tribute act that comes along, make sure you do your research, and look for testimonials and reviews to get an idea of what they are like. If it is a possibility, ask if you can come and see their show before you commit to anything, so you can get a feel for what the entertainment will be like on the night. If this is not possible, see if they have any videos uploaded on YouTube, any reputable tribute act will have videos on YouTube documenting their talent.
Tribute acts are notorious for coming across as a little cheesy and tacky, but this is simply not the case. There are some incredible tribute acts and bands that sound just like the real thing, so don’t be afraid to go with a tribute act if that is what you really want for your wedding. Your guests will be thanking you afterwards for a wonderful fun evening!
