Hello and a big welcome to After Dark Entertainments!
My name is Wendy Hester and I have been running my agency for over 10 years. The main reason why I set it up is because I am in the business myself as a singer and have been performing in bands for many years (I started early!).
The other reason is that I was getting to know so many great acts on the circuit and during my 2 pregnancies I found myself passing enquiries onto them. It was then that I developed a real passion for helping people to find exactly the right entertainment for their special event at a price that was within their budget. I have both a musical and business background, having been in Management Consultancy and sales for much of my working career. I now devote my time to my entertainment agency and I continue to build my bank of the highest quality bands, DJ’s, comedians, magicians – whatever you are looking for, I can source it for you!
You might be asking why you would use an agent like myself rather than go direct to an act on the internet. There are many reasons why but I guess one of the big ones is that I am dedicated to the success of your event and I will be here to discuss your requirements at any time. You can always get hold of me and I will be here to answer any questions whether they be prior to the event or on the day! If there are any emergencies, I am able to respond and sort them out. Even if a band is not able to play on the day as a result of an emergency, (very unlikely but life does throw some unforeseen situations!) I am here to source the best alternative so that your event can go on to be a success. I am also in constant negotiation with all of my acts so as to absorb the cost of the personalised and professional service.
I love dealing with my bands and entertainers because they are the most professional and friendly people I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
We have such a good relationship that we negotiate the best possible price – you will hopefully find we are the most competitively priced agency and if we are not, please do tell us and we shall see what we can do!
I am always here to answer your questions, give advice and provide you with all the information to enable you to make the best decision about your entertainment. I really look forward to receiving your call, email or text about your special event!
