GBS Galas and Corporate Parties
Blue Tie Optional!
Are you the Event Coordinator? It’s a tough job. Everybody wants more, but your budget is the same as it was last year! Time to break out your secret weapon…Goody Blue Shoes!
GBS is proud to support your organization’s gala event or company reception in the way that you envision it. There are no one-size-fits all attitudes here. Does your CFO want to embarrass herself by singing Love Shack? Let’s do it! Has your society’s anthem been The Rocky Theme as members work toward a common goal? Let’s open the night with it!
GBS members have graced the stage at events for organizations like The American Cancer Society, the USO, and many other South Jersey and Philadelphia corporate events and galas. We’ve made the night unforgettable for company parties of all shapes, sizes, and budgets, and have worked with municipalities for events throughout the region.
Planning and Preparation – Communication and organization are of the upmost importance when working with your music partner. GBS’s Event Coordinator, John LaPalomento, will be by your side as consultant from day one, on stage as your Master of Ceremonies, and everywhere in between.
Cocktail Hour Performers – GBS will get your reception started any way you want at cocktail hour. GBS can act as either background ambiance or a featured performer, always keeping the volume comfortable for conversation. From a simple solo piano to a splendid five piece jazz combo with vocalist, or from a graceful solo harp to an elegant string quartet, we can deliver whatever you imagine!
Ballroom Reveal and Guest Entrance – As your guests enter the reception ballroom, GBS will impressively set the mood for the event. This detail is oftentimes overlooked, but so valuable for getting the night started right.
Dinner Entertainment – While you and your guests are enjoying a delicious meal, GBS will keep the music going in a subtle, appropriate way. Don’t be surprised if some of your guests are dancing cheek to cheek between courses!
Dance Party Fun! – Let’s get this party started! GBS will keep the dance floor packed all night long with our awesome selection of Contemporary Pop, Motown, Rock, Oldies, and other favorites. Unique to GBS, we play mega-medleys of music to create a non-stop performance. It’s the feel of a DJ with the grandeur of our amazing nine piece band, complete with talented vocalists and a dynamic horn section!
Room and Dance Floor Lighting – In addition to a spectacular music performance, GBS can create a visually stunning atmosphere in your reception ballroom. We offer dynamic stage and dance floor effects lighting as well as elegant room lighting and uplighting options.
Remarkable Flexibility – No matter how much planning you put into your event, variables happen! That’s why it’s so important to have a Master of Ceremonies and performers that have the flexibility it takes to run a smooth event. When the caterer is running 15 minutes behind for dinner service, or a speech goes longer than expected, GBS has the experience and know-how to work around any delay or behind-the-scenes issue. You and your guests won’t even know anything was ever out of place.
Sound Quality and Volume – GBS uses a state of the art sound system and a professional sound engineer for all events. We’ll always sound amazing, and will always perform at an appropriate volume level for your guests – young and old.
