Elton John tribute, Joel Coombes takes to the keys at Alexandra Palace!

Since opening on Queen Victoria's 54th birthday in 1873 with a grand celebration including concerts, recitals and fireworks, Alexandra Palace has survived two fires and hosted the first ever television broadcast! And now, Elton John tribute Joel Coombes has taken to the stage at Ally Pally for an explosive fireworks display!

This entertainment venue has played host to a huge array of performers and events in it's lengthy timeline.

From music hall stars like Gracie Fields who alledgedly coined the nickname, Ally Pally to Led Zeppelin who played the palace in December 1972.

Now, our very own Joel has joined the scores of artists who have performed at the iconic venue.

Joel Coombes is one of the UK's leading tributes to Elton John. Joel has a striking resemblance to Elton John both visually and vocally. Combine this with his great piano playing skills and you have a superb tribute show...which we're sure Ally Pally did!

Why use an agency to book your wedding/corporate/party entertainment??

'It'll be loads cheaper if I do it myself' 'Surely it'll be quicker' 'My mum's cousin's boyfriend's teacher's best friend said it's easier to plan it all myself without an industry professionals help'

Whilst a lot of people are more than capable of booking and organising a performer for their event - booking through an agency such as ourselves sets out to make the process quick, easy and professional. There are a lot of misunderstandings and a fair few misgivings about the role of an entertainment agency in the booking process and we'd like to dispel a few of these in our handy guide; 5 really good reasons to book through an entertainment agency!! (namely our entertainment agency...)

1. We know what we're talking about!
Henderson Management have been a big name in entertainment circles since the mid 80s. With a vast catalogue of seasoned performers who have been vetted by the staff - there's no chance of booking something in who isn't tip top. We know what makes a great act and that's what we're looking for when we attend showcases or search for new performers to work with. You don't run the risk of not knowing what you're getting on the day as you'll have professional and honest (!) assurance on the quality and capabilities of your act.

2. Other agencies think we're pretty good at what we do!
Like many industries, you won't get anywhere without a good reputation and that's one thing we're very proud of at Henderson Management. We are frequently approached by other agencies for our acts because we have a reputation for working alongside the best of the best tributes in the UK. When booking with us, you've got assurance that the acts you're booking are sought after and the best at what they do.

3. We'll be with you from the day you enquire right through to after the event!
Once you've sent us an initial enquiry or dropped us a call - that won't be the last you hear of us! From day one, we strive to be contactable and approachable to our clients and encourage any questions or queries that we can help rectify. Booking on your own means you're chasing the act and hounding them for questions and this can become a little stressful. Leave that to us...we''re allowed to hound them - it's our job!
4. We've got connections!
We don't specialise in one particular type of client. We've booked in all sorts of acts for wedding bookers, corporate companies, holiday parks, pubs, birthday parties and anything else you can think of! We've booked in something for everyone across the years and so know what to look out for with each different type of booking. We know that we probably need to check what time the wedding breakfast is so the band have time to set up beforehand and aren't crashing cymbals as your Dad makes a teary speech.
5. We care! 
Organising any type of event be it a tribute night or a charity concert is super stressful and we undertand that. The role of an entertainement agent is to make the process appear seemless and stress free and want our clients to feel that everything is taken care of and they needn't worry once they've booked in with us. 

So there you have it. 5 really, really good reasons to book your entertainment with an agency.
What are you waiting for? Give us a call and let's get booking!....
