KIDS DISCOS - the easy way for kids parties!!
After over 30 years’ experience in DJ entertainment in Brisbane, we find that many clients who saw us at discos, events and school & uni dances in the 70s, 80’s & 90’s, are now parents themselves and, remembering, seek to book us for their kids birthday parties and primary school discos.
They want something different compared to the traditional kids party entertainment - fairies, clowns, ponies, jumping castles - something to suit a wider variety of ages, yet with similar cost.
We put on Hi-energy, performance-based shows, with a high degree of audience participation - DJs who can connect with and relate to kids of all ages, prep to teen, mindful of the various stages of their development.
For young kids, we wear lots of silly hats and wigs, do lots of mic work, get the kids to dance, jump, cheer and sing loudly, dance comps every 10-15 mins (kids will do anything for chippies or chocolate!) and lead them in the various method dances - YMCA, Macarena, Nutbush, Twist etc. For older kids, we include a higher content of top40, techno, hip hop, cool moves and stuff!
As the kids dance a lot, we suggest you have lots of drinks but only a small amount of snack food out to start. Then have a Feature Food every half hour - sausage rolls, cheerios, mini pizza slices, nuggets, maybe ice blocks later. It gives the kids breaks and something extra to look forward to. Don’t forget the Freddos for Prizes!
Unlike other kids entertainment, where there is usually a lot of one-on-one time, eg, fairies & facepainting, our shows keep the kids’ attention the whole time, in one place. You can include a party game or two towards the end and the tired kids go home straight to bed!
Clients tell us our kids disco parties are more fun, less work, with less wastage and they save money on food, costumes and decorations - the light show does all the decorating for them. It’s even good exercise for the kids. They often invite other parents to stay and have their own grown-up party/BBQ at the back. They can join in with the kids when they want and it’s usually the parents who don’t want to go home!!
