5 Questions to ask your children’s entertainer

With nearly 20 years’ experience in the children’s entertainment industry, it’s fair to say that Cathy Randazzo and the team have a wealth of experience to share. We asked them what the top 5 questions parents should ask when choosing a children’s entertainer.

Do you have insurance?

Children, dancing, power cords. What could go wrong? Ok, so with the right training around setting up equipment this shouldn’t be a problem, but the reality is things can go wrong. Having insurances for accidents is a necessity when you’re a children’s entertainer.

Do your staff hold appropriate security checks?

Our children are our most valuable asset and we take protecting them seriously. Making sure that your children’s entertainer has the appropriate and current security checks is mandatory when working with schools, kindergartens, & child care centres, it’s sadly overlooked when running birthday parties, community events, or holiday workshops.

Do you pay copyright for the songs you play?

As artists, children’s entertainers should value the hard work of the singers and songwriters of the songs they played and make sure they are paid. In Australia, children’s entertainers are required to pay copyright fees for the music they play but don’t own the copyright to.

Are your staff regularly trained?

It may seem silly to train a children’s entertainer, but there are always new dance moves, changes to health & safety rules, and new rules on working with children. Keeping up to date with these changes means that customers can rest easy knowing that they are receiving a high quality service.

Is your equipment safety tested?

Amplifiers, microphones, lighting; all of this equipment should be checked at least once a year by a licensed electrician. Safety testing is important for the safety of the party guests and the children’s entertainer.

We hope that these questions help you to choose a children’s entertainer for your next party or event. If you’d like more information about Bop till you Drop’s services, please follow the links at the top of our home page.

  • Ivy had a wonderful birthday party on Saturday. I wanted to particularly thank Mitchell, the Entertainer. He was an absolute blast and I got some lovely feedback from other parents who certainly noticed how great he was. He was perfectly on time, ran the activities really smoothly and had a whole room of 7 and 8 year old girls delighted and enthralled. The Hunters Hill Club location was also fantastic. They had everything set up when we arrived and the hot food and fruit platters looked amazing and was delicious. Thank you for providing everyone with such lovely memories, I will definitely be recommending a Bop til you Drop party to anyone planning a dance party!

  • A massive thank you to a Stacey and Chips for hosting my daughters 5th Birthday Disco party. Your music was perfect and you both did a fantastic job involving all children and making the birthday girl feel extra special. Stacey is such a fantastic entertainer and has a gift with the children. She can remember all the children’s names and she’s only just met them at the party. Chips is beautiful and fun too. A great pair. Thank you ladies for a relaxed birthday party that all the children loved.
