So we're updating this article, since it's been a bit since we wrote this. If you're on your company's holiday party planning committee, it's REALLY time to book your DJ, photo booth, Karaoke, games, or whatever other entertainment you're considering for your Austin or central Texas holiday party!
It's mid-October and time is running out. Even though the weather may not feel like the holidays are approaching, they are! Though this cool front sure is nice1 :) We have right around 6 weeks until Thanksgiving and a little over 10 weeks until Christmas! At the time of this writing, we have about 73 days until Christmas. Yes, we even included a countdown timer for those of you who are super organized and want to know exactly how much time you have left. It may make many people nervous, too (sorry). :)
With that being said, people will start booking their holiday party entertainment around early September. This week we were flooded with calls and emails for holiday parties and fall festivals! We're always happy to help, if we're open. Remember, there are only 4 weekends to have your holiday party, until Christmas, if you're doing it in December. We've actually even booked Friday 11/30/18, for two holiday parties, already, too!
Oh, and by the way, you don't have to book your holiday party before the holidays. We've even done holiday parties in mid to late January! Judging by the pictures and attire, you would have never known it was after the holidays! Everyone wore similar attire, there was Christmas decorations, and we even added "holiday party 2017" (and 2018), on the photo booth strips!
Perhaps these companies wanted to have a holiday party that celebrates Christmas and Chinese New Year, in between both, but we're not 100% sure. One thing we are sure of, is that they saved a TON of money, waiting until after the holiday rush and they didn't have to compete with others, for a Saturday spot! The "off-season" is in January, so they likely saved lots of money on the venue and perhaps on their vendor fees, too! It's a pretty smart move and it allows you to get more for your budget! We're not trying to persuade you by any means, but we just wanted to let you know that this could certainly be an option.
So be sure to figure out your event date, and book your venue, ASAP! After you've booked your venue, be sure to book your catering or food service, next. After this, book your entertainment. Those are the 3 essential things for a great party: a great place, great food and drinks, and great entertainment.
Regarding entertainment, we have a variety of great holiday party DJs, we also offer photo booth rentals, lawn and giant game rentals (giant Jenga, giant Connect 4, cornhole, and other games), Karaoke DJs, and more! Whether you're entertaining 10 employees or 1,000 employees, we will work hard with you, to ensure you and your fellow employees will have a great time!

Lake Travis High School 2018 Project Graduation!
Friday night, we had such a great time providing a DJ, photo booth, and Karaoke, for an awesome project graduation, for Lake Travis High School, at Hill Country Indoor! There was so much to do and it was a fun-filled night with our services, along with hypnotist, Erick Kand, a mechanical bull, dodge ball games, basketball, cornhole, volleyball, Karaoke, a movie room, a magician, Bingo, casino games, Bubble Soccer, Gaga Ball Pit, a fortune teller, arts and crafts, board games, rock climbing, and tons of great door prizes!
Here is the map of activities for the night. It was a fun night!
The students LOVED the karaoke room, with our DJ, Paul! We caught a video of them singing "Bohemian Rhapsody," from Queen! :)
Jason and Diana took turns spinning the hits for the dance party, from 10 pm - 2 am! David ran the photo booth, from 10 pm - 2 am, as well. The mechanical bull and of course the live hypnotists, were a lot of fun to see! It was quite amazing to see he was able to hypnotize these students so easily! It was truly unbelievable! We even asked one of the students about it, after, and he didn't remember a thing! Overall, it was a great event and we look forward to doing it all over again, this weekend, with Marble Falls High School!

Kasasa Holiday Party, With a DJ, Karaoke & a Photo Booth!
Saturday, we provided a DJ, photo booth, and two Karaoke DJs, for an awesome holiday party at Hotel Van Zandt, in Austin, Texas. Yes, you read that correctly, a holiday party. We weren't sure why they chose to have a holiday party in late January, but we didn't question it. Who says you only have to have holiday parties near the holidays? We were happy to help over 400 of the Kasasa employees have a blast! Celebrations can happen any weekend, all year long! We know this, since we're busy with weddings, quinceaneras, parties and corporate events, all year long! :)
For this party, we provided 2 Karaoke setups, a DJ/KJ in one room, and just Karaoke in the other room. We also provided a photo booth and lighting. Jason personally worked this event and was in the main room as the DJ/KJ. Jason kept everyone dancing, all night! Everyone had a great time and did NOT want the party to end. That's how we like all our events to be, of course. David was at the photo booth, keeping guests entertained with selfies and our fun props! Joe ran karaoke in the smaller room and it was a hit! There was a line of people wanting to sing the entire night! Diana helped coordinate the entire event and ensured that the night flowed smoothly. Thanks to our entire team for a job well done!
Besides our entertainment, they also had giant games, a game room that also included everyone's favorite "Cards Against Humanity" and a casino! This party was so much fun. Thanks, again, to the great team of vendors and staff of Hotel Van Zandt, and of course to Kasasa, for allowing us to be a part of this special event. We can't wait for their next event!
