There are thousands of tribute acts around the world, but what makes a good tribute act? With many years of experience in the entertainment industry, specialising in tribute and party bands, we are here to answer!
It may seem obvious, but a good tribute act will always look the part. They should do more than simply wear the clothes of their favourite singer. The act should have absolutely everything down to a tee! Whether it's Michael Jacksons famous moonwalk or the 'rubber legs' of Elvis Presley, mannerisms might be the single important thing to look for in a tribute act.
Most of the tribute acts we work with are either professionals or what we would class as 'semi-pro's', in other words, they perform for a living. While it's always fun to earn money doing something you're passionate about, that doesn't mean it should be all fun and games when it comes to performing. A reputable and well-rounded tribute act will always be reliable, punctual and respectful.
Being organised is important in any career, you can't build a house with no tools nor write a novel with no pen. Performers are no different. A top-notch act will always come prepared with everything they need to put on a show, whether that's a full sound system or their best backline equipment.
When you're looking at hiring a tribute act, it's always a good idea to see what other people have had to say about them. A good tribute act will often have reviews online. Acts on the Henderson Management website will more often than not have a 'Testimonials' section on their page where we upload any feedback submitted to us (usually through e-mails or google reviews).
If you have any further questions when booking a tribute act, don't hesitate to ask us! We help customers find the perfect act for their function almost every day here at Henderson Management.
