It looks like this year's party season is going to be VERY different! But that doesn't mean "No Parties!"
Lots of people are planning on making the best of things and holding online virtual parties and events. And, if you're holding a virtual event on Zoom, Teams, Skype, etc..., how about adding some live music?
"Fantastic performance by Phil in a surprise guest performance at my wife's birthday Zoom party. She absolutely loved it and there were rave reviews from all our other guests, too! Phil was set up to perform over Zoom, but he could have been in the next room, and needed no technical input from us for everything to work perfectly. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a versatile and talented singer." (Virtual Event)
Whether it's full-on party tunes, more of a cosy, Christmassy concert, or a mixture of the two, please get in touch for a great value quote, to give your virtual event a real lift and add a bit of extra sparkle!
An example of the look and feel of a virtual event is here: https://youtu.be/jxQ_PYyRGqw
