The Weather We’ve All Been Looking For

The weather we have all been waiting for is finally here! We’ve been seeing a lot of short sleeves around and we’re loving it!

We’re also loving the performances that we’ve had happen over the past week..
With Bizircus’s Roving Stilt walker, Robbie T, Mark Pascoe, AViiDA and Adam Hall & The Velvet Playboys holding down all of our corporate events, ZAP Circus and Renegade stole the stage at some fantastic community events and Ragdolls & Explosive Dance (Bavarian Dancers) made their way up north to get the party started for Rocktober Fest!

And of course, this week has been just as good!
Cathrine Summers wowing the audience at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre Morning Melodies show, whilst Lisa Harper-Brown and pianist stealing the show at a Mandurah Performing Arts Centre celebration event and Black Swan had the absolute pleasure of having ARCO at the Black Swan State Theatre Company’s 2017 season launch.

The corporate gigs around the city this week have been absolutely amazing with performances from some of our great acts such as; Viva Mexico Duo, Shrinking Violets, Ashley Arbuckle Solo Fliptease Circus (Lollypop Lyra), Cathrine Summers Trio, ZAP Circus (Purple People Show), Mario The (Almost) Magnificent, Cameo Rascale Duo, AViiDA, Chris and Sherri Murphy and MC Darlene Gianoli!

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!
Big T’s and Box Party’s reviews will be on their Big Sky profiles, we high recommend checking them out.

The first weekend of Spring is looking just as good as the week leading into it with acts such as Matt Swift bringing his magic to a private event, Big T is heading up north whilst we have Chill Divine and Ali Bodycoat handling the corporate events!

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!

IT’S TAX TIME!

For some people, tax time is somewhat like Christmas and is up there with one of the most exciting times of the year, whilst others try their hardest to ignore it for as long as they can (until the tax man comes around and reminds them that they can’t do that anymore).. But along with all the mixed emotions of tax time, a busy week for us here at Big Sky also comes with it!

This week we’ve had some of our favourite corporate companies enjoy some amazing talent, celebrating that EOFY in style!
IKEA would have been serenaded after Eddie Staszak’s performance, the Shire of Irwin would have been blown away by Zap Circus’s amazing abilities and tonight Scott Vance will be taking the stage at an event held by Ron Farris Real Estate!

Up north in the beautiful winter weather, our hard working miners enjoyed two shows from Chris Franklin and then again from Renegade and James Morley & Amanda Canzurlo took the stage at one of our private events this week.

If you were one of the people in any of these crowds and you also ignore tax time – we hope this made it a lot easier for you to push it to the back of your mind!!

If you happened to have caught any of these acts whilst they were out and about this week or over the weekend, we hope you enjoyed them and if you were interested in having them for one of your events (mining, corporate or private) feel free to call us on 9388 6762 or send us an enquiry through our website www.bigskyentertainment.com.au!

Jumping for June!

I don’t mean to alarm anyone here, but do you all know that it’s already June! Winter is here and 2017 is nearing. I am very envious of the people who are finding that this year is going slow because this year is going so fast for us here at Big Sky we’re starting to get dizzy!

It’s been a great (almost) half of the year though! We’ve had some great talent perform at some fantastic events and our books are just growing with more amazing artists from all over WA and even Australia! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out some of our new entertainment including Orquesta Yambeque, Bump ‘N’ Grind, For The Roses, The Adele and Amy Songbook, Dove & The Flockers, Just4Kix, Bravo Singing Waiters and so many more! The choices we now have are absolutely endless – there’s really nothing that we can’t offer to help you make your next event unforgettable!

Speaking of unforgettable events – what events have you attended this year where you’ve seen our entertainment?
I’m sure most of you will see a handful of our fantastic performers such as Andrew Winton, Electrochic, Cameo Rascale and Nat Ripepi as we all celebrate WA Day!

We’ve also been super busy with our new project – Shakespeare 400 Festival! If you haven’t checked that out already, make sure you do! We’ve got so much going on throughout the year for the worldwide celebration that we can assure you there will be something even the un shakespeare lover will enjoy!

If you happened to have caught any of our acts whilst they were out and about this week or over the weekend, we hope you enjoyed them and if you were interested in having them for one of your events (mining, corporate or private) feel free to call us on 9388 6762 or send us an enquiry through our website www.bigskyentertainment.com.au!

Hopping our way into April!

First and foremost – HAPPY EASTER FROM THE TEAM HERE AT BIG SKY ENTERTAINMENT!

We hope you’ve all had a fantastic Easter break and you’ve come back feeling merry and of course – full of chocolate and other goodies (we know we have), though of course it doesn’t stop here at Big Sky just because the Easter Bunny is here so we too (as well as our performers) had to HOP right back into it!
You wouldn’t think it would be too much fun having to go too University over the Easter break – unless of course you went to Curtain where you would have experienced the fun filled Tennis Duo and even the Easter Bunny!

QV1 of course put on a great show for their clients with entertainment stealing the show such as Gabriella’s Vibe, Dove and they even had two little Easter Bunny helpers! How cute!
The hard workers up in the mining sector had the chance to let their hair down to Abby Sky, Big T and Oz Rock Duo! Not a bad way to spend Easter up at work if you asked me!
We also had the fantastic opportunity to supply some great comedy talents for this years Leukaemia Foundation Comedy for Cure Ball – Callan Durlik and Andrea Gibbs!
Also we had the privileged of having Olman Walley perform a Welcome To Country at an event put on by The Town of Bassendean, where Fiona Cornelisse MC’d!

I wasn’t lying when I said we had to HOP back into it!
If you happened to have caught any of these acts whilst they were out and about this week, we hope you enjoyed them and if you were interested in having them for one of your events (mining, corporate or private) feel free to call us on 9388 6762 or send us an enquiry through our website www.bigskyentertainment.com.au!
