Book a function and party band for live musical entertainment!

If you’re not sure whether you want to hire a party DJ to provide musical entertainment, why not consider a function and party band to provide live entertainment throughout the whole evening?  A function and party band generally has plenty of experience in performing at various parties and has a way of getting the party started as they also make announcements and chat with your guests too.  A function and party band will perform songs from many eras while getting everyone up on the dancefloor and making your teenager’s 18th birthday party go off with a bang!  Click here to find a function and party band near you right now!

If they love comedy, why not opt for an Adult Stand-Up Comedian?

For something completely different and for the comedy lover, another fantastic idea for 18th birthday party entertainment is the adult stand-up comedian.  The ideal choice if you aren’t expecting younger teenagers or children to attend, an adult stand-up comedian will provide plenty of laughs and cover a number of taboo subjects while performing to guests.   There is always the option of hiring a clean stand-up comedian if you would prefer to keep things on a safer comedic level.  Click here to search through our adult stand-up comedians and book one for your event!

Keep some memories and hire a Caricaturist!

Caricaturists are very popular among wedding entertainment, however more people are choosing to book them for birthday parties and other events too!  A Caricaturist will sketch guests within a few minutes in a funny style, and give each one for them to keep as a memento.  Usually positioning themselves in a central location, a Caricaturist is a non-evasive type of entertainment that can occur in the background while other festivities take place.  Want to find a Caricaturist?  Click here to browse our selection on our entertainment directory!

Add some magic with the help of a Close-Up Magician

Another non-evasive type of entertainment which is guaranteed to get guests talking is to hire a Close-Up Magician.  A Close-Up Magician will work around the room and perform to small groups of guests, which generally attracts plenty of attention and spectators too!  Using coins, bank notes and other small objects, a Close-Up Magician will perform illusions and sleight of hand tricks making your guests gasp and want to know the secrets!  Book a Close-Up Magician to add some sparkle to your teenager’s 18th birthday party!

If your teenager really loves magic, go for a Stage Illusionist!

For a more dramatic magical performance, instead of hiring a close-up magician why not look at booking a Stage Illusionist.  This type of entertainment will work well in larger venues and generally requires the help of a beautiful assistant along with other volunteers from your guests.  A stage illusionist will perform more elaborate tricks and illusions, sometimes death-defying and will really shock your guests and give them plenty to talk about.  Book a Stage Illusionist and add a dramatic element to your next event!

Keep things trendy and hire a dance act for your event

If you want to keep things modern and your teenager loves to dance, as well as booking musical entertainment, have you considered hiring a dance act too?  We have many different types of Dance Act listed on our website, from contemporary, samba, showgirls and much more!  Each dance act will have their own routines that have been practiced and will put on a performance while your guests watch and want to join in!  This is bound to make for some fun moves on the dancefloor once their performance has ended.  Want to find a Dance Act using our entertainment directory?  Click here to search through our available acts!

If your teenager likes a certain singer, why not hire a Tribute Act?

Another fantastic type of musical entertainment is to hire a Tribute Act, which is perfect if your teenager loves a certain solo singer.  Not only will a Tribute Act perform songs from their muse, but also act like them too and is a lot more affordable than hiring the real deal!  Tribute Acts will have repertoires of tracks that they can perform, so it is always advisable to check with them in case your son or daughter wants a specific song for their party.  We have plenty of tribute acts to choose from including tributes to Robbie Williams, Olly Murs and Katy Perry!  Click here and find a tribute act from our massive selection!
