Do you remember when your teen years ended?

Starting the Countdown Early

Who would believe that we only have little over 3 months left before the calendar officially takes us into the 20’s, the 2020’s that is!

With New Year’s Eve quickly approaching, we hope you’ve got your plans sorted, events planned and everything in order.

Just in case you don’t, why not let us help you plan the best New Year’s party ever by securing you the very best in entertainment for the night. Think it’s too late to book someone? Not at all. Our working relationship with various artists in the industry means that we are able to pop into their calendar more easily than you are able to hit their manager’s cousin’s DMs.

But who to book for the night? What even makes great entertainment while watching the clock? We say keep it interesting, classy and enticing enough to even keep your grandma up until midnight.

Let’s look at some ideas quickly:

Fire Dancers


Something unexpected, visually enticing and most definitely becoming of a bohemian New Year’s Eve, fire dancers are just the ticket to keep your guests in good spirits. For the event you can hire roaming fire dancers who entertain amid the crowd with occasional fear defying acts, or you can make them the star of the night with a focal show, perhaps just before the big countdown?

Roaming fire dancers start at R7 500 ex VAT and focal shows start at R12 500 ex VAT.

Hula Dancers


Of course, being in the Southern Hemisphere we enjoy balmy New Year’s evening. So why not go all the way with some Hula Dancers setting the tone for the night? Starting from R10 000 ex VAT

Function DJs


But what is a New Year’s Eve without a little dance? That’s why a good function DJ is essential to keep attendees moving and grooving into the next decade. Starting from R10 000 ex VAT for 4 hours, a good DJ can build excitement and mood as the clock ticks away the last seconds of the year. Hopefully they throw in “The Final Countdown” to their mix!

Live Entertainment

Of course if your event is a little more black tie than low key, live entertainment is the way to add a little pizazz to the night. Starting from R12 500 ex VAT, a live performance is a highlight to look forward to and a great talking point for your guests. Let’s look at a few options below:

Vernon Barnard


An amazingly talented musician with a deeply soulful style, Vernon Barnard had judges literally jumping on their seats with his performance on The Voice South Africa.

The Muses Duo


A wonderful mix of classic instruments fused with modern technology, The Muses are string quartet based in Johannesburg. Emanating a raw energy that bring a little rock n roll to every room they perform in, these classically trained Muses are the ideal fit for a New Year’s Eve.

Berné Hayes


For the Afrikaans crowd we recommend Berné Hayes, an accomplished guitarist with a stunning voice that really draws the audience in, as proven by his discovery on Facebook – as most true talents are discovered these days.

Ice and Fire


Versatile, diverse and definitely funky enough to set fire to the dance floor, this ensemble is the ideal fit for those looking for a cover band that meets most tastes – ranging from African, Rock, Pop, Afrikaans Musiek and Latin inspired music.

Absolutely Fabulous


This Cape Town based duo is a fun drum and vocal act that places a high focus on making sure to connect to their audience and giving them what they want. There is no ego here, just a pure love of music and a need to entertain.

We would love to hear from you.
