While Altus Entertainment can provide performers for private parties, fairs, festivals, and community events, the company’s roots are in providing entertainment for corporate events of any size and budget and in simplifying the process of finding the right entertainment for each event. “When we began working with our corporate and non-profit clients, we quickly discovered that the person in charge of planning an event is often someone who doesn’t have a lot of event planning experience and just had responsibility for the event dumped on them by their boss,” explained Altus Entertainment CEO Seth Yudof. “We wanted to create a booking service that makes booking live entertainment for their event easier and hassle-free for them.”
People planning an event for the first time or the 50th time can browse Altus Entertainment’s extensive online performer database. The company has built a diverse roster of performers and entertainers, ranging from comedians and illusionists to dancers, acrobats, celebrity chefs, and interactive entertainers. The company’s current roster of performers includes over 10,000 acts spread across dozens of categories.
Even with so many types of entertainment, the company’s core entertainment offering remains music. “The majority of our clients are looking for musical entertainment for their event,” said Yudof. “Some have big budgets and want big name A-list bands or solo artists or classic rock bands, and we can certainly book those acts for them, but the majority of our clients have smaller budgets. Some want a dance band. Some want background music. Some want a solo acoustic act or a particular style or culture of music. Our database of artists is large enough that we can meet any musical need and any event budget.”
Before Altus books any act for an event, an Entertainment Booking Agent is assigned to the client and takes the time to learn about the event and the client’s vision for their entertainment. The Booking Agent also focuses on the audience attending the event and the event budget, to develop an initial list of entertainment options to consider before selecting the act or acts for their event.
Geography is not a barrier to booking the ideal act for a corporate or non-profit event. “Our database of performers includes acts which are willing to travel,” explained Yudof. “Our clients are often surprised to learn that we’ve got quality acts which fit their needs and their budget even when travel costs are figured in. And that’s great, because we are able to meet their needs and solve their entertainment problems no matter where in the world they are.”
