The Perfect Ratpack Party

The Ratpack Theme is extremely fun and entertaining no matter what the occasion, whether you are organising a corporate event or the most important day of your life. Here are some top tips for booking your Ratpack Entertainment.

Choose the perfect style for youAlthough you have decided on the theme of your event,it is important to be aware of different styles of Swing and Jazz. For example for the ultimate party atmosphere you may enjoy a more upbeat band such as The Speakeasy Swing Band. For something a little more low key for perhaps a drinks reception a solo performer may be more appropriate. Ask for as many details as possible prior to booking your act.

How many guests are attending
It is important to consider how many guests are expected to attend. This will determine the type of act that is most suitable. For instance if your guestlist consists of 200+ guests, a solo performer will not have the same impact as a full size band. Ask your booking agent for their recommendations.

Classics or ContemporaryYou should be aware of the setlist that your act is going to perform. You may think of Swing and Jazz as a Classic theme, but more and more contemporary artist are adapting to the genre.A range of both classic and contemporary suits a wide audience.
Can your act perform everything from Frank Sinatra to Michael Buble?

Choose the perfect package
When booking any event the most effective way of booking entertainment is to book thorugh an agency. This allows you to book your act with the most competitive price. Agencies have a variety of different artists, from Drinks reception Artists to Swing DJs. They can provide you with the perfect package deal for you.
