Pick the best

The success of any function can often depend on the event entertainment that has been organised. We’ve all been to parties and wedding receptions where the wedding band or wedding DJ has really captured the spirit of the event. Many of these event entertainers establish a reputation through word-of-mouth recommendation, and that is why we have such a varied selection of highly recommended event entertainers.
Thanks to the way Bark works, you don’t have to trawl the internet or ring around a load of entertainment agencies to find what you are looking for. Instead you can read through our extensive list of performers who specialise in event entertainment, and then read up on the reviews that have been left by others who have booked them before. Whether it is bands for hire or kids’ party entertainers, we believe the best judge of their entertainment value is people who have seen them perform, not us here at Bark. As a result, you know that when you book an event entertainer you have discovered through Bark, you won’t be in for any nasty surprises.
As for when event entertainers are needed, well there’s a whole host of opportunities beyond weddings and children’s parties. There’s major wedding anniversaries, corporate entertainers for the office party, fundraising events, engagements, milestone birthday parties and nowadays even divorce parties are becoming popular!
  • From balloon sculpture to clowns, magicians to storytellers, when it comes to kids’ party entertainers, you’ll find we’ve got the lot here on Bark. Kids can be the worst critics where party entertainment is concerned, but with Bark helping you, you can be assured that everyone will have a great time with an experienced children’s entertainer.
  • If you are looking for bands for hire, then look no further. Wherever you are in the country, we have local bands registered with us who will keep everyone dancing well into the night, providing the neighbours don’t mind!
  • For wedding entertainment, you’ve got the choice of wedding singers, wedding bands, or wedding DJs. Check out the feedback left by other Bark users to help you decide which may be the best option for your own wedding entertainment.
  • Maybe you’re organising a surprise party for your parents to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary. What better way to make sure the evening goes with a bang than to book a band or a DJ that will play a selection of songs that were in the charts twenty-five years ago, helping them to reminisce about how and when they first met.
  • Corporate entertainment is also becoming very popular again now that the recession is firmly in the past. Whether it is for a product launch or staff Christmas party, Bark can help you find and book the perfect event entertainment for your corporate ‘do’.
  • Has your son or daughter got an important birthday coming up, or have they just graduated from university? You’d love to throw a surprise party, but are not sure what sort of band they would like. Get together with some of their friends and check out the live bands we’ve got listed here on Bark, so that between you, you can hit the right note.
  • Thanks to Bark, you can expect to receive quality contacts from successful event entertainers, so don’t hesitate to get started with your search. Remember that we are always here to assist you, so if you need any further advice on how to find the best of your local event entertainers, or to get an idea of the cost of a DJ or wedding band, don’t be afraid to ask us.

What do you love most about your job?

We love that we make people laugh, dance, sing and embrace the beauty of their surroundings! Everyone goes home exhausted and beaming with delight.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Sometimes, the best things are also the most unexpected.
Our story started in 2015 when our founder hosted a totally different “little birthday party” and put together a Scavenger Hunt Experience for 40 friends. It was an “Amazing Race”-style gallop through the streets of Cape Town, complete with costumes, props and crazy challenges. It was a resounding success and quickly became a hobby, so she did it again the next year ... and again, the next ... and the next .... with more and more teams signing up annually. So many people asked “When are you going to turn this into a business?” and “Where can we sign up?” So voila! “The Scavenger Experience™” was launched to the public!
We create UNIQUE local destination experiences that move hearts, minds, friends, strangers and work colleagues to create and share unforgettable and hilarious, lifelong memories. We’re a totally Experience-Based company that strives to create events that are unforgettable experiences for all the participants, spectators, and industry partners. Our promise to you is that NO TWO ADVENTURES WILL EVER BE THE SAME.

There are no restrictions and all challenges are achievable – it makes no difference if participants are young or old, an Olympic athlete or a professional couch potato, terrified of heights and spiders or useless at puzzles. Everyone qualifies and no-one will feel frustrated or left out!
