The Rat Pack were asked back again to entertain guests for a family party in Hertfordshire and boy what a party it was. They had previously performed for the same client 4 years ago and had been such an enormous success that they were invited back again. The trio performed with an 8 piece backing band and sang all the well-known Rat Pack songs that had made Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr so popular. They are brilliant performers and entertained not just with their immaculate vocals but also with their witty comments and jokes. The room was transformed by the use of subtle up-lighters and table centres with giant blue ostrich feathers placed in tall lit vases. Added to this there was a delicious dinner with fine wines thus ensuring that every guest had a truly memorable evening.

Christmas seems to come round faster each year and 2013 was no exception. We were literally rushed off our feet with parties and receptions with all kinds of different entertainment on offer to help the festive season go with a bang. Not only did we have the usual DJs and bands, mix and mingle acts and gospel singers, but we had casino parties, cowboy themed events, golden living statues, mind readers, singing waiters, acrobats pearly kings and queens, Santa and naughty Christmas elves and even John Blashford-Snell put in an appearance - the variety was huge!

The family hired the whole of Le Gavroche for their celebratory party and even Michel Roux Jr was on hand in the kitchen and to explain to the guests how the evening's menu had been put together. It was no wonder then what our pianist was asked whether he wanted the same meal as the guests or to eat in the staff room that he chose the first option. Musicians don't usually get treated to such a delight with crew meals and out-mess, but when it does happen it is a real bonus.

Hamley's kicked off the festive season early at their flagship Regent Street store, with Carol Singers to welcome customers as they browsed for presents and ideas for Christmas. The singers were dressed in Victorian Costume just to add to the atmosphere and they gave great renditions of all the usual well known carols and Christmas tunes such as White Christmas, Away in a Manger and Ding Dong Merrily on High.

Diwali was celebrated in style this week with an stunning event at Stationers' Hall for a law firm and their clients. The rooms were decked out in jewel colours with low sofas and cushions and lanterns and flower petals strewn across the floor making the overall effect truly amazing. There was a sitar and tabla player positioned on a raised dais, a henna artist and graphologist doing readings for the guests. Added to this we had beautiful girls modelling exquisite saris and the guests could have a trying on session when they were given demonstrations on how the saris should be worn. Even the men joined in wearing shewanis and turbans!

Halloween is getting bigger every year in the UK and the kids (and even some of the adults) really make a big thing of it whether it is holding a party or dressing up and going trick or treating. We provided a number of acts over the Halloween season this year including face painters, witch and wizard children's entertainers and giant games.

Race nights are a fun way to entertain guests and also a good way to raise money if it is a charity event. We provided a Race night for a joint birthday party at a venue near Duxford in Cambridgeshire and the guests had great time putting the bets on the horses and raising money for a local charity
