    Providing a complete Entertainment Experience for your Alberta event

    Do you want a GREAT PARTY for your upcoming wedding or event? It's a serious question, and one we encourage our potential customers to ask themselves. You may think people say "Yes" but that's not always the case.
     
    Brides... and grooms... but mostly brides (we get it), spend months and sometimes years planning out their perfect day. The dress, the walk down the aisle and of course, the "I do's".
     
    And for a lot of brides, that's where it ends. The reception is often looked at as an obligation, to reward people for coming out to witness their union. A free meal, couple drinks, a dance and home by 11.
     
    And that's OK. If that's what the "after wedding" experience means to you we recommend renting a PA system and plugging in an iPhone and building your own Spotify play list. Save yourself a grand on hiring a DJ just to play music for a few hours.
     
    However, if you want a night that's all about you... where you get introduced like a RockStar, have your guests cheering, laughing and dancing their butts off then we should talk. Be honest, when was the last time you were at a wedding where people actually had to be asked to leave at 1:00am because they were having so much fun?
     
    That's an IQ Entertainment Experience.

  • the entertainment experience

    So what does "Entertainment Experience" actually mean? We break it down into three stages.

     

    1. Planning Services

     

    We work with you to ensure your events are properly planned and executed. We assist in timing, entrances and scheduling to ensure the production elements give it a "WOW" factor.

     

    2. Entertainment Services

     

    Great music is the bare minimum of what you should expect from an event entertainment service. We work our butts off to entertain you and your guests, which helps create an experience that they actually remember - not just an event they felt obligated to attend and forget about by the time they get home. We want them telling everyone how much fun they had on the weekend at your party!

     

    We talk a lot about "production" and believe that a truly great event doesn't just happen, it's produced. That's why we include all our production elements including:

     

    - Selfie Station Photo Booth with props (included)
    - Room Uplighting
    - Fog Machine and Special Lighting for Rock Star reception entrances including BIG introduction
    - Complete audio sound system including 1000 watt subwoofer (it's awesome).

    - Two person team, one dedicated music coordinator and a separate Event Host and Coordinator.

     

    3. Event Host
     

     

    As your Event Host, we're there for your reception or program on the microphone to ensure your guests are warmed up and laughing, announcements are handled and introductions are made. If you have your own MC's we work with them to ensure sound checks and also to take some of the mundane tasks like coordinating tables for eating etc. are off their plate.
