Undercover Superstars pride themselves on being able to tailor their performance to suit your event. Working with the client, we put together a scenario which compliments the event and suits the clients taste. Not every client knows what they want so we have some template scenarios such as below. Any song is possible as long as a backing track exists (unless you are happy for it to be accapella) so please bear this in mind whilst reading the below example.
Characters: The Chef, The Waiter, The Guest
You and your guests have been sitting having a wonderful meal, and have just polished off your main course and are happily chatting away. A waiter makes his way up to a microphone thats set up at the top of the room, and ‘tings’ his glass for an announcement. Everyone quietens down, and the waiter starts to speak. He apologises for interrupting everybody, but would like to introduce the chef who cooked their lovely meal, and as its Chefs birthday and as he’d done such a fabulous job cooking this evening perhaps you could all sing happy birthday to him. The waiter gets everyone singing to the chef, and the chef looks pleased as punch to be getting so much attention! Chef thanks everyone, and goes to head back to the kitchen. Half way back, he stops in his tracks…like he’s had a fantastic idea, and heads back to the mic. He interrupts everyone again and on the mic announces that as its his birthday, he’d like to sing you a song! Before anyone can stop him he starts singing a strained and out of tune performance of ‘Thank You’ by Dido. His singing is SO terrible that people start to laugh and jeer! The waiter gently pulls him away from the mic after just a few lines, and appears to take him off and give him a quick talking to! He comes back to the mic and apologises to the audience…explaining that Chef has a big dream to become a professional singer, and he likes to practice on unsuspecting audiences!! He apologises again and goes to get back to waitering…but just as he does he decides to show the audience how its really done! Music starts, and this waiter launches into a mindblowing rendition of ‘Let Me Entertain You’ by Robbie Williams. The audience is shocked, as this waiter is fantastic! He’s running round the room, climbing up on the tables…and everyone is clapping along! At the end of his performance the crowd is ecstatic! He’s soaking up the attention, taking huge bows and loving the sound of the applause.
However…through the sound of cheering and clapping, the intro to ‘I feel Good’ starts to play. Out of nowhere, the chef has stolen the mic! He starts to sing, with a cheeky look on his face….he’s brilliant!! The crowd goes even more wild, cheering at him croon the high notes…and laughing at him grabbing a woman out of the audience and whirling her around the room! Just as the song is finished, the two guys come together to take a bow! Suddenly, ‘Respect’ by Aretha Franklyn starts playing over the PA. The two guys look confused…none of them seem to know anything about this…up stands ‘Jane’…one of your colleague’s girlfriends who you’ve been chatting to all evening. She pulls out a mic from under the table and starts belting out the song, making her way up to the other two boys. Once she gets to them, they all get into the spirit, getting people up to dance with them, and encouraging everyone to sing along and clap.
