Case Study: A Touch of Africa

Posted on Tuesday, February 03, 2009

Sharper Solutions were appointed by the Park Plaza Riverbank to organise a VIP party for one of their international guests.

We were asked to create an infusion of jazz with Africa while ensuring the elegance factor was retained throughout.  Ready to rise to the challenge of this unusual brief we put together a party that was elegant, unusual and a first for many of our musicians.

Dressing the tables was done with zebra print cloths and with black and white feather towers which immediately gave the impact we were looking for.  Mixing the print with plain white chair covers and table cloths gave a softer look to the African styling.

The entertainment was to be a first for our in-house jazz trio when we put them together with two African drummers and asked them to perform together - what a fantastic sound!

The band was hand pick to ensure the right mix of music was presented. We featured our exclusive 9 piece band who performed a complete mix of Motown, jazz and popular party tunes!  With a magnificent brass section coupled with superb front singers and rhythm section all led by Kevin on keyboards, they had the dance floor full from the minute they started.

As a finishing touch for a unique event we introduced ’the Queen’ - well, our look-alike!  Bit of fun from the UK which went down a treat.  

So if you are looking for something unusual then give us a call.
