Serve Your Next Event Shaken & Stirred with a Cultural Twist

South Florida is the epitome of a melting pot, featuring a multitude of diverse cultures and ethnicities. It’s no surprise this vast multicultural population has contributed to the area’s thriving social scene and growing reputation as an Event mecca.

Traditionally, options for planning that special event have centered on choosing the perfect décor, food, and venue. However, with so many festive occasions being celebrated each season, it’s becoming increasingly challenging to make that engagement party, wedding reception, anniversary, bar mitzvah, etc. stand out and be noticed. Today, there is a wealth of emerging, creative and exciting options available to design events that are truly spectacular, memorable, and incorporate a unique cultural or South Florida flair. Whether it involves the latest hip, pop-culture craze, or paying homage to traditional affairs, there are endless choices to spice up Events, and Artists are answering the call by translating their amazing talents into something that can really up the WOW factor and create a splash.

Acrobatic Stilt Walkers

These Performers aren’t the only one that will be “flipping” once they demonstrate their magnificent prowess. Skilled stunt artists will add an energetic vibe to any event and keep it from becoming stunted or stilted.

Aerial Cube Act

Motion and incredible precision are the keys to this performance, adaptable to the rhythm of any event. Cube displays are the definitive way to take spectacle to the third power!

Floating Bubble

Did Glinda the Good just crash this party? Guests at any event will be fascinated by the sight of an amazing contortionist performing in a bubble that floats in a pool. Bring out the bubbly, it’s going to be a bumpy night.

Gatsby

Nostalgia is a fabulous way to kick start an event into gear. Nothing says “classic” like Gatsby. The audience is guaranteed to have a roaring time as elaborately costumed flappers strut their stuff, weaving their magic and glitter throughout the crowd.

LED Robot Performers

For lovers of all things futuristic and Sci-Fi, there’s the ultimate LED experience. “Robot” performers have an LED screen on their chests that can be programmed with custom messages or corporate logos. And watch out for that 4’ long C02 cryo gun which sprays the crowd with arctic air! This is definitely and Event Transformer!

Living Tables

Guests will think a “living” table is to die for! Why push through a crowd to a stuffy old buffet table when the “table” can come to guests directly and serve them with a smile?

Theme Events & Dancers

Western? Rock? White Party? Having themed dancers perform during an event definitely ups the ante, raises the excitement level, and will have everyone tapping their feet long before the night is tapped out.

Flash Mobs

Imagine a room filled with guests. Suddenly, members of the crowd begin to belt out a rousing Opera! Surprising guests during dinner with an artistic performance will ensure any event isn’t just a flash in the pan!

Street Art & Graffiti/Live Painting

Breathe life into an event with the latest fad: live paintings. From traditional graffiti and graphic portraiture, to brand and logo reinterpretation, live paintings can capture the essence of an event. A twist on this unique theme is a Graffiti Living “Red Carpet,” where guests walk on the “red carpet” before realizing it’s part of a surreal, couture gown customized in urban style graffiti. Memorialize an event with a work of art.

DJ vs. Live Music

The age-old debate has been settled and there’s no longer a need to make a choice. Add a new dimension to any event by fusing deejays, emcees and musicians to create a remarkable, multi-sensory experience. There are also deejays that can spin the records, while incorporating the electrifying sounds of a live musical instrument, such as the violin. In either case, the experience will rocket to number one on guests’ charts.

The Spheres

For an out of this world event, the Spheres are the answer! Just think of a series of illuminated globes swaying in the breeze over 15 feet in the air, when suddenly, celestial beings magically spring free to dazzle guests.

Venues

With all the talk of performers, artists, and musicians, the quest for the perfect event venue can’t be overlooked. The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater is growing in popularity as a premier venue for private, special event social functions, due to its variety of spaces including a VIP Lounge, Lobbies, Gleason Room and Main Theater.

These are just some of the new and exciting innovations available to take events to the next level, as artists and event organizers alike continue to think outside of the box to create exiting and grandiose affairs that push the boundaries of the imagination.
