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!!



Can you believe that it’s already one month into the New Year? They do say that time flies when you’re having fun and believe us, we’ve been having fun – and we hope you have been too! We also hope that you’ve had a fantastic Christmas and New Years – it’s been that long we’ve spoke! Time flew by so fast during the silly season that we started to lose track of it! Over the fun filled silly season we had the opportunity to send some of our performers to some great events across the state! Ensuring that our hard working miners still got the chance to get into the holiday / festive spirit, we sent up some great acts such as Proud Mary, Andrew Winton and The Vans! Spending Christmas and New Years wouldn’t have sounded too bad for them!
Back down locally you may have caught Blue Beats in Mandurah, or maybe our very mystical Mermaids caught your eye if you got the chance to end the year of 2015 at Matisse Beach Club! Whatever you did over the holiday period we hope you enjoyed it as much we did, though sadly it’s time to admit that the silly season is over and it’s time to get back to work, even for us here in the entertainment industry!(who would have thought). Though just because the silly season is over doesn’t mean there’s no more room for fun – the mining sector and many of our corporate customers have shown us this over the past few weeks, putting on events for their employees across the month with some fun filled entertainment from us such as Eerie Ann, Midnight Rambler Trio, Adam Hall and Kinetica!
Whatever the event, corporate and even private – Big Sky Entertainment is your one stop shop for all your entertainment needs, whether you need music, circus, comedy, magic or even a saucy burlesque show; we’ve got it all – so give us a call or send us an email, we’re filling up fast with bookings for this year but there’s always room for more!

Chinese New Year and more…

Another huge week as the Perth International Arts Festival ramps up and Fringe World Festival winds down after three exhilarating weeks. This week, we have had the beautiful Chinese Stilt-Dancers and Lion Dancers perform at QV1 for Chinese New Year, always the most stunning sight. The wonderful Michelle Smith – Jazz Harpist performed at the Curtin University Wellness Expo, alongside Brendan Coleman and Beth Sheldon’s juggling performance and workshop, focussing on ‘mind and body.’ Speedway Australia were treated to the suave and smooth sounds of Anderson, solo dinger and guitarist. Mine sites in WA will be twitching when visited by the stunning Perth Samba Social Club and Brag Hogg will be out for the Cricket Clinic this coming Monday. On a sadder note, our thoughts are with everyone in QLD trying to stay safe in the wake of Cyclone Marcia. Unfortunately, the wonderful Lights of Berlin and the Oils, Angels and Divinyls tribute band had to be cancelled from performing at the QLD mine site due to the weather. We hope all are safe and look forward to rescheduling these terrific performers soon.

Love is in the air….

The world can be a cynical place but this last week was guaranteed to restore love to the hardest of hearts! The wonderful festivities at Fringe Festival, the Opening of Perth Festival with the breathtaking and wondrous Giants wending their way through the city and the upcoming Chinese New Year festivities…so much going on and Perth is alive!!!

Some of the performers out and about this last week and this weekend are – the quirky 1950’s roller waitresses who handed out cupcakes to vendors for the new branding of QV1 on Thursday; Mickey Shaked was also at QV1 yesterday to entertain the vendors and customers in anticipation of the weekend to come; last night Flame trio entertained at Curtin Uni for the opening of their outdoor cinema (Valentines themed), Explosive Dance are adding to the french theme for Satterley’s community movie event of ‘Chocolat’ in Harrisdale and we have some Chinese Lion Dancers heading up north to bring an essence of Chinese New Year to the mines.

Behind the scenes, we’re so excited by the progress of Big Sky Events, under the masterful touch of the gorgeous Natasha Birch. Make sure you have a look at our brand new Facebook page – Big Sky Entertainment – Events!


2015 is here!

Happy New Year! And I think I can say with absolute conviction that it was and that 2015 has begun in a truly delightful fashion, being heralded by some top Big Sky performers. In QLD, the legendary Mason Rack Band performed for NYE at a mine site and, not to be outdone, WA mine sites were treated to the wonderful Mickey Shaked Duo, stunning dancers from O Entertainment and incredible party band TopKats. Glamour-filled NYE parties abounded in the corporate sector with Alcatraz at the Valley View Restaurant, Ricochet Circus at Perth Zoo, Mermaids, The Sirens and Kinetica, Retriever Sounds DJ and Sensational Stilts (Windsor Hotel) being amongst those to kiss a fond goodbye to 2014 and wave hello to 2015. Wherever you were, we hope you felt the same anticipatory joy we did. Happy 2015!
