Christmas Party Entertainment Ideas

Last updated on November 28th, 2019

November ends, and before you can say mulled wine it’s party season. The tree is up, the tinsel’s out – now you just need the perfect Christmas party entertainment to complete the celebrations. Here to make sure you don’t get snowed under with options, we’ve compiled a list of amazing Christmas party entertainment ideas. Here are some fantastic Christmas party entertainment ideas to get everyone in the yuletide spirit.

A Jazz Band

Think of Christmas music, and you might think of reverberating sax, blasting horns, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. Capture this bombastic sound with a seasonal jazz band of your own. Both thrilling and nostalgic, there’s a reason jazz bands are a festive hallmark.

Jazz also works perfectly as serene background music if your do is a more relaxed affair – giving you scope to cover all bases.

A Violinist/String Quartet

Jaw-dropping covers of the biggest pop songs have been taking the internet by storm, with both electric and acoustic strings reshaping the originals to stunning effect. Bowl guests over with this innovative party entertainment.

But if traditional is more your thing, nothing says traditional festivities like a soloist or quartet’s rendition of the Christmas classics. The delicate sound will also lend a sophisticated feel to the evening.

A DJ for a party might not be a revolutionary idea, but it’s worth keeping in mind regardless. No performer has so many songs at their disposal, with many DJs having thousands of songs at their fingertips. That means you can move straight from Mariah Carey to The Pogues if need be.

But why not give this classic Christmas entertainment a twist by opting for a combined DJ and live musician act? Delivering a collaborative set, these impressive acts are unforgettably unique.

Soulful covers of Christmas classics are also more popular than ever – making for the perfect accompaniment to the more laid-back, chilled-out moments.
