How To Prepare If Your Performer Cancels | Slightly Unusual Corporate Entertainment

We are frequently contacted every single day by corporate clients who claim their original entertainment has cancelled on them on very short notice. As a result, they want to know if we can provide one of our corporate magicians to them. This is a terrible situation to be in. It’s something we wouldn’t wish on anyone. This is why we wanted to take the opportunity to prepare for potential last minute cancellations.

How To Prepare If Your Performer Cancels | Slightly Unusual Corporate Entertainment

While we don’t want to point the finger at anyone, more often than not it’s one band band performers who tend to cancel on their clients on such short notice. Because they are an independent performer, there is no one else they can turn to to cover their booking. There is a good chance they may have fallen ill, had a sudden family emergency or in some cases, decided there was another gig that paid better. No matter the reasoning, it puts a lot of stress on their clients.

The good news is there are several steps you can take to avoid being put in this situation. Firstly, we highly recommend booking a national company like Slightly Unusual. Because we have a large range of magicians available, if one of our performers falls ill or has to take a family emergency, we can immediately accommodate you with another performer right away. During our several years of providing magicians to corporate events, we have never, not once, let any of our clients down.

Now, if you went with a one man band performer originally and they cancelled, the first step is to not panic. Once your original performer has 100% confirmed there is no possibility of attending, ask if they know any other entertainer who can provide a great experience and will accommodate your every need. If they do not, go ahead and start searching for other corporate magicians. They may have some availability on short notice. A last resort for you to do is contact a corporate entertainment company. With such a large team of performers, they may have someone who is local to your area and can arrive on short notice.

Preparation Is Key

Having your performer cancel you creates a stressful situation nobody wants to be in. The best thing you can do is contact Slightly Unusual as soon as possible. We’ll provide the best corporate entertainment available for your upcoming corporate event.
