Half way through 2017!

Can everyone believe that it’s now HALF way through 2017?! It only feels like yesterday that I was talking about how it’s Christmas and 2016 just flew by!

They do say that time flies when you’re having fun, and with entertainment and events that happen around Perth each week – we have a lot of fun!

This week we’ve had some killer gigs and entertainment to match –
Up north they had Phoenix King Band and then Cam Dobie, doing two locations!

Black Swan State Theatre Company had their opening night of Endgame where Noah Shilkin would have wowed the crowd with his piano!

Exams are edging closer and closer but UWA students and facality got to take a load off this week and listen to some Kayla Jaye Duo at the UWA Tavern, whilst Curtin Uni students had some Professor & Student stilt walkers around the campus!

Total BS & Co. had some great entertainment with Jamiy & Manuel and Famous Sharron & Candy Girls are at the Mullewa Muster & Rodeo this weekend! Ye-Ha!

We hope everyone has a safe and happy long weekend, and we will catch you next week!

Wild Weather and Wild Performances

It really wouldn’t be Perth without weather that keeps us all on our toes now wouldn’t it? But that’s got to be one of the reasons we all love it here… right?

Hoping that everyone has stayed cool when it’s been hot and dry when it’s been wet, we also hope you’ve been out and about amongst all the great events that have been on around Perth featuring some great performances!

New Years Eve we had Robbie T, Ric Stern, Matthew Jonath, Mario Magnificent and Viva Mexico for all the corporate holiday parties, and Katherine John & Dancers.
Up north the hard workers were treated to an amazing performance by Boy and Bear on NYE, which would have been absolutely fantastic!

On Australia Day we don’t know what would have been hotter, the weather or the performances that happened around WA!
Bubble Bikes, Explosive Dance show and 2 pierotte stilt walkers took on the Australia Day party down in Bunbury, whilst Amanda Canzurlo and James Morley jammed out at a wedding, whilst Retrofit and Wildflower Trio did their thing at some other private events and of course some great perfomances from entertainment such as Afterglo, Desert Bells, Mike Goldstein and Tim Beckett (comedians) and The Bar Ends Duo up north.

We’ve also had some great new acts added to our books that you definitely need to keep an eye on!
LA Women, The Fit Swimmers, Jeremias Sosa, Vulture Street, WAYJO, Soul Machine, Lolly Pop Lyra and many more!!

We’ve got a real SPRING in our step!

Yesterday when I woke up, I noticed that I had a real SPRING in my step… Yes that’s right, Spring is here and I just made a dad joke.. It’s not even Fathers day yet either..

Dad jokes aside, we had a great week leading into this fabulous season..
During the week we had Big T play at the opening of a new basketball court in the Shire of Ashburton and his performance was raved about after!
On Wednesday, Black Swan Theatre Company had the opening of “Clinton The Musical” where one of our great trios, Box Party preformed at the pre AND post show events! The testimonials that came through after were fantastic!

3 weeks until Spring

As the days start hitting 20 degrees (every now and then), we can start to see the sun at the end of this wintery tunnel! 3 weeks until Spring people, brace yourselves – soon it will be Summer again and we will be complaining about how much deodorant we are all going through and fan sales will be going through the roof!

In the mean time we have had some great entertainment out warming up some events around Perth and up north!

Around our city we have had some entertainment such as Aviida perform at Galleria, our Latin Dance troupe performed a Brazilian Samba Dance for an Olympic themed corporate event, Matt Swift put a little bit of magic into a private event and Mark Pascoe MC’d at the Western Australian Karaoke Championships (how did I not know about this and where can I sign up for the next one?).

Moving our way up north we also had some entertainment such as DoughBoy Funk DJing and MCing for an event and Bump n Grind getting everyone bumping and grinding!

One week into August

I don’t want to alarm anyone, but we are officially one week into August! But no need to feel sad because it’s FRIDAY!

It’s weeks like this week that make us understand why the year has just flown by, and there is no denying that this year has disappeared considering we are four months away from 2017! But we’re also getting closer to the getting back into the warmth, glass half full right?

We have had some great performers work their magic at some fun corporate events this week! Performers such as Valerio, Chris and Courtney Murphy, Ali Bodycoat Trio, Aambiance Duo, our talented henna tattoo artist and our fabulous Bollywood Belly Dancers!

Matt Swift got to wow the little audience at a children’s birthday party and up north we had some acts perform such as Blue Beats and Box Party.

This weekend is also the annual Nameless Festival in Tom Price and we have had the pleasure of sending up some great entertainment such as DJ Sarah from Komodo Music and Samwise The Beatboxer who will be doing some fantastic beatboxing and vocal loop workshops for kids of all ages, helping them come out of their shells and to feel empowered to take creative risks! If you want more information on this festival head to their event website – http://namelessfestival.wixsite.com/2016.

Warming up Winter

As the days get colder and colder, Big Sky is providing entertainment to warm up any gig that you throw at us!
This weekend is going to be a hot one with some of our fantastic acts such as Robbie T and Matt Swift doing close up roving magic and stage shows for corporate gigs, or other acts such as Aambiance Duo, Nikki Dagostino, Eddie Staszak and Oompah Band at an International food event this weekend! We also have some great acts such as Bravo Singing Waiters and Velvet Amps spicing up some private events!

Uni break is also over but that doesn’t mean that the fun ends for the students of Curtin University with some great acts roving around the grounds such as Glimmer Stilts, Blue and White Fairy and two very lanky Lizards! The start of their semester was also spiced up by Midnight Rambler Trio!

Placid weeks

Good morning everyone, I trust that you are well – It’s Friday (Fri-YAY in my opinion) so of course you all are!
Hoping that everyone is staying warm in the cold but also enjoying those patches of Winter sun that we have been blessed with over the past few days.

It’s been another placid, yet fun week here with entertainment, having Mickey Shaked escaping the cold and heading up north to play (smart guy if you asked me).
We will also be having Little Belle play for Ernst and Young this weekend and Ella E will be at the Song Lounge!

We have also had the return of one our beloved showgirls – Fifi Fatale! She’s back in WA and back up on the website, so if you’re after some fantastic vintage burlesque at your next event be sure to look her up and book her before she’s off again!

Even though the entertainment side may seem quiet these past two weeks, of course that’s not the case for inside the office. With new acts being added to the website weekly and with a whole load of time and love being put into the Shakespeare 400 Festival that we have been curating! If you haven’t already checked out what we’re doing for the Shakespeare 400 Festival – be sure to jump onto the festival’s website! It’s going to be a fun filled year of Shakespearian events that will accommodate to a large array of demographics!

Much love from the team here at Big Sky Entertainment!

MAY-hem!

I swear it was only April yesterday, until I looked at my calendar and we seem to be well into May – I can smell christmas in the air and it’s scary! 2016 is moving too fast for my slow little feet – how about you guys?

I’ve said it before and I will say it again – time flies when you’re having fun, or when you’re just too busy to look at the date most days!

We’ve been having some real fun here at Big Sky over the past month, with Gala Events and Mine Sites, Corporate Functions and Private Parties!
It’s amazing where we just happen to pop up these days – don’t be surprised if you’ve ran into on of our fantastic performers in the past month!

I don’t know if you’ve heard but we are actually the brains behind the Shakespeare 400 Festival that is taking place in Perth right now – it’s why were all running around like a chook without a head, make sure you go check it out (https://www.facebook.com/shakespeare400festival/). This year is a big year for Shakespeare as it’s the 400th anniversary of his birth AND death so we are doing wonders around Perth to celebrate this!

Other than that, of course our usual entertainment entertaining!
We hope everyone else has had a good week / weekend!
