Tell me a little bit about your business!
EBE Talent is an award-winning, full-service event planning, production, and entertainment company that has made its reputation as an industry innovator for over 20 years. At EBE, we understand that every client’s needs are different and although we’ve planned, produced, and entertained for thousands of events along the east coast, we approach yours through fresh yet seasoned eyes. Our mission is to make your party, wedding, or special occasion everything you imagined and then exceed your expectations.
What makes your work unique?
Choosing the right event planners and entertainment is essential to the success of any event – and EBE approaches every celebration with the same hard work, dedication, and attention to detail, no matter how big or small the affair. We treat each event with individual care and make exhaustive efforts to achieve our client’s every desire. Our events are never simply “jobs”; they are investments in relationships. EBE takes great pride in the fact that our clients are repeat customers, a tribute to the quality of our service and performance. Not only do we work closely with you and your vendors, we do it in a way that makes your job a whole lot easier. We take great pride in the 5-star experience and personalized treatment we provide our clients.
What is your ideal client like?
Our ideal client values quality music above all else. It brings us together – from childhood to adulthood and traditions to new experiences. We believe that the dance floor is where we all meet, and an EBE dance floor is a full dance floor! Each event is unique, and we do everything we can to curate the perfect “Soundtrack to Happily Ever After”. It is truly a pleasure to share in each and every celebration that we are a part of.
How do you get to know a couple’s taste in music?
Our dynamic emcees and bandleaders meet with each and every client a few months before their event to iron out the details. This covers everything from correct pronunciation, coordinating with your vendors, and, of course, your music taste. Each band has a song list that consists of hundreds of songs, and you’ll go through the list to note your “must plays”, your “do not plays”, and your “if you have time! plays”.
How do you motivate guests to get on the dance floor?
Our emcees and bandleaders are all trained in what we call “The Art of the Party”. We play nonstop live music for the entirety of your event (even during dinner!), and we know when to slow it down or turn it up. It sounds silly, but our favorite way to get guests on the dance floor is to play amazing music! Each individual emcee and bandleader has their own way of motivating guests, but the bottom line is the music… if you play great tunes and know how to read the crowd, the dancing will follow.
How would you describe your emcee style?
The beauty of EBE is the wide range of emcee styles! With 16 amazing bands and more than 15 incredible DJs, you’ll choose the vibe that fits you and your celebration best.
