Choosing The Right Entertainment For Prom

Hosting a Prom originated in America and is a fantastic way for secondary school / high school children to gather to celebrate their final year together.  Many proms will soon be underway so if you haven’t booked entertainment for your event yet, keep reading for our top suggestions for prom entertainment…


The basis of entertainment for any Prom is of course music, and there are many options available to you depending on the type of musical entertainment you require, and of course your budget:

Book a Party and Function Band to get the party started!

Choosing a live band for your upcoming Prom is a good way to get teenagers up onto the dance floor.  Live entertainment is becoming a popular choice among young adults and a Function and Party Band would be the perfect choice, playing a variety of music from their collection.  Each band plays their own choice in genres from pop and rock, indie, jazz and much more which gives you a huge range of choice when it comes to choosing the right Party and Function band for your Prom.

Suzi and the Backbeats

One of our featured party / function bands are Suzi and the Backbeats who will unleash their musical reinvention of some of the world’s favourite tracks, taking the songs that you love, and redefining why you fell in love them in the first place. They promise to bring you an entirely unique musical experience, tailor-made for your event – find out more about the band on their website.

Find a Tribute Band that fits the occasion

If you are looking for something more specific for your Prom, why not hire a Tribute Band of a popular group to perform at your Prom?  There is a huge choice when it comes to Tribute Bands – just remember your target audience are teenagers so they are more likely to prefer a Take That tribute band or a Girls Aloud Tribute.  Choosing the right tribute band will give your guests the performance of a lifetime as they play tracks from their dedicated group.  The one limitation of booking a tribute band is that they generally won’t play any music that isn’t from their tribute.

Narrow things down with a tribute act

Following on from our suggestion of Tribute Bands, don’t forget we also offer Tribute Acts to hire from popular modern artists, such as AdeleLady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.  A tribute act may be a slightly cheaper option than hiring a whole band, yet will offer just as electrifying performance.  We have a huge range of tribute acts available to hire on our website, so click here to get searching!

Get them dancing with a Party DJ

DJ’s are fantastic at getting people onto the dance floor and may be a more affordable option than live music.  A Party DJ loves what they do and will take requests from guests, talk with them through the microphone and of course play music from all sorts of genres.  If you want to keep things fairly modern, that is an option for your younger guests too!  A Party DJ won’t need much space to set up, and some even come with their own light-up dance floors! If you are considering having a DJ to play at your Prom you can take a look at all the DJ’s available to book on Entertainers Worldwide then see our guide to booking a DJ.
