Finding Tribute Acts for an event may be a bit of a tricky task if you have no experience in handling this sort of responsibility. The main problem is finding a good tribute act. Anyone can dress up like their favorite stars and call themselves a tribute act; but being able to sing and mimic that star or band well is another matter altogether.
Of course the easiest way to find such an act or Party Singer or Birthday Party Entertainers is to go online and look for them. But you will run into the problems described above. One way to get around this is to go and check out the act when it is being performed. However, chances are that this is not a feasible option. In this instance, the best thing to do is to outsource the matter to an entertainment agency.
Entertainment agencies have lots of artists on permanent or part-time contract. Whichever is the case, they will be able to source a good act for you for your event. Find a few agencies online and check out their portfolios; you are bound to find the exact act you are looking for or might discover something surprising which could work out even better. You can also ask them to send you a video sample of the act performing to an audience. This will help you gauge the artists and also give you an idea of how the concept works out on a real live audience.
