Client Event Receives Energy Boost from Integrated Entertainment Performances

Challenge/Opportunity

The client presented Bishop-McCann with the following wish list for their corporate event. First, they sought a general session opener that would increase audience participation and align with their celebratory theme. Second, they wanted an act that would keep energy high during the awards dinner. Finally, the client asked for a fun, well-known band to perform after the awards dinner. They told us, “Think fun! Think party! Lots of hits!”

Response/Solution

Mike Super has astonished millions of people with his craft, including Hollywood’s elite. He was voted America’s Favorite Mystifier on NBC’s hit TV Show PHENOMENON, and he was a finalist on America’s Got Talent. The secret to Mike’s success is his natural ability to transcend the “illusion” and connect personally with his audience.

The award-winning, one-man show of Jason Hewlett will have you laughing until it hurts. Comedy, music, impressions, and the standing ovations that follow make Jason the perfect choice for your entertainment needs. His brand of hilarious entertainment is unlike anything your audience has ever seen.

Big & Rich—one of the most successful and flamboyant duos in country music history—also entertained the audience.

Outcome/Results

During the general session, Mike Super wowed the audience and set the tone for an event that would be full of surprises.

The real story goes beyond the great live performers we had on deck, the energized party the evening became, and even beyond the fantastic show they performed. The story begins on the day Nashville experienced the worst ice storm since 1950, which was the very day our big-name, Nashville-based talent was to travel!

Although fully within their rights to claim force majeure, Big & Rich booked a private jet and fought hard to make it to the event. Getting to the private airport in Nashville was a feat in itself. In fact, John Rich had to sit and slide down his steep front yard (luggage and all) just to get to the waiting Hummer. That is dedication.

At the event, all hands were on deck working on plan B in the event Big & Rich were unable to get clearance to take off. Turns out, we stacked the deck with one of the most talented, professional performers in the business, Jason Hewlett. Without skipping a beat, Jason jumped in and performed two extra 15 minute segments (with standing ovations, no less). This gave Big & Rich the extra time needed to make it to the venue, change clothes, and get on stage. Of course, they walked on as if they’d been relaxed and ready for hours.

In the world of corporate events, where occasionally fame translates to lazy performances, it’s refreshing to experience the work ethic of a chosen few who clearly understand the concept of “showing up.”
