So you’re watching as a new couple JUST walks onto the dance floor fresh from the bar – at the very end of a slammin song, and they’re lovin it. They want this vibe to keep going, NOT to change. Cuz they’re ready to groove together on it. How do you extend the song for them and not kill the vibe? If you’re a dj, the song is gonna end. You can’t hit rewind cuz that’s the beginning of the song and that’s lame. You can only hope the new song coming up will work out. But, if you’re a live band, and you’re the MBB, you repeat the final out chorus OR, revert to another verse OR, add solo jams OR, add more choruses, etc. etc. as needed. You have real-time OPTIONS to re-arrange the song, and so you do! The couple stays, connects, and commits to the floor. We did this twice last night at Alderbrook Resort. Voila! Success! Done! #whyyouhirethemichaelbensonband

Will you be our MC they ask? But of course! This is a natural part of my work. I deliver any/all announcements clearly and graciously throughout the night as needed, to keep the flow going at our events. It amazes me how many people wonder if they’ll need to hire someone else to make the necessary announcements for them – like a dj? For that, seriously? Mais oui! Cest si bon! We have you covered!
I wanted to pass on my gratefulness to you and your band for the fabulous night of music, fun, and upbeat atmosphere at The Space Needle…you nailed it! You were very responsive to the crowd, and very responsive to me as a planner and I totally appreciate that!
Amy L. Vallejo
Where do I even begin? It has been an absolute pleasure working with you! You were so kind and helpful with all the announcements, the guests absolutely loved you, and you did an amazing job with the dance. I can’t say thank you enough. I hope to work with you again in the future and best of luck as we head into the 2016 season! – Jocelyn, with The Invisible Hostess http://www.theinvisiblehostess.com
