Australia’s leading acts in corporate entertainment will be presented at GALA, an entertainment show within Sydney’s Event Showcase on 10-11 August at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. SMA Entertainment By Design and Lovegrove Entertainment have joined forces to bring together the finest performances and introduce brand new acts at the show.
Lovegrove will present The Leading Men, a popular show featuring stars of stage and screen Ian Stenlake from Sea Patrol and Scott Irwin from Hairspray. They’ll be performing their famous Australian Medley, a collection of Australia’s most popular songs, ‘Il Divo’ style.
SMA will bring to the stage the dazzling all-girl violin act String Diva and their newest act Boys in the Band inspired by the greatest boy bands, such as Jersey Boys, Bee Gees, The Beatles and The Jackson 5. Inspired by the same trend, Lovegrove’s new show Jersey to Motown will perform top hits from Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, The Temptations, The Drifters and Stevie Wonder. TJ Power who starred with Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love is part of this glittering act.
GALA co-producer Darryl Lovegrove, Lovegrove Entertainment believes this unique showcase will bring a new perspective to entertainment for special events.
“Corporate Entertainment is often viewed as a luxury item and is invariably the first thing to go when event budgets are cut. However, entertainment sets the tone for an evening and can make or break the event; a memorable act will enhance a client’s theme, emphasise a message, get an event off to a flying start and send everyone home on a high,” said Mr Lovegrove.
With a solid history of success in the world of corporate entertainment and a friendly relationship reaching back more than a decade, both companies share the belief that high-quality entertainment is fundamental to a winning event and what people remember most.
Dale Burridge, SMA Entertainment By Design is looking forward to the show.
“Being able to establish our brand and networking directly at the coalface with prospective and existing clients, continues to be a crucial factor in SMA’s success and business strategy. There’s nothing better than face-to-face contact!” said Mr Burridge.
“PCOs, event planners or representatives of speaker bureau frequently book our shows but never get to see them perform live in action! This is why we’ve created GALA; to provide an opportunity for everyone wanting to add impact to their events and see some incredible corporate entertainment acts in the same place at the same time,” said Mr Lovegrove.
“We are truly proud of our partnership with Lovegrove Entertainment. Even though we are competitors in our field, we feel strongly that standing united, with a shared vision and commitment to supplying world class corporate entertainment created by experts will continue to give us the edge,” said Mr Burridge.
