A recent addition to the Beats Of Polynesia unique realm of entertainment is the hugely popular Polynesian String Band. The ‘String Band’ can transfix any crowd with the unique, exotic sound of traditional ukulele and guitar playing used to accompany the rich, golden voices of our Polynesian men. The Beats Of Polynesia String Band sings a mixture of traditional upbeat, and slower melodies all designed to accentuate the mood of any event. Within the exciting repertoire of songs, these talented men include music and lyrics from Tahiti, the Cook Islands and Hawai’i. As an added visual aid to the music, a client may choose to have one Polynesian beauty gracefully dance in accompaniment. ‘Highly recommended as an exotic sound to greet guests. True Island flavour!’ Come and experience the sounds of the Pacific! Polynesian String Bands Overview: ‘From Tonga to Cook Islands to Tahiti, string bands exemplify the laidback Polynesian attitude toward life. Groups of musicians are still found playing at social gatherings of all kinds: dances, BBQs, kava parties, youth festivals and competitions. Small choruses sing in a soft falsetto. Bands incorporate various adopted instruments such as the ukulele, the backbone of the string band, and guitar. Ukuleles and guitars were introduced to Polynesia beginning in the late 1800s, and by the 1920s strumming under palm trees had become a favourite pastime. Though string bands were initially devoted to playing parties and clubs or backing dance troupes before electricity was widely available, the increasing popularity of electric bands and local pop and hip-hop variations hasn't completely blotted out the large-band format. If anything, tourism has provided more opportunities for gigging string bands to make a living with many Polynesian restaurants and wedding sites highlighting the region's bands. National Geographic'

Suitable for all the family, his lecture is lively, amusing and a continuous surprise both to the audience and to the Professor himself!

The Punt The Punt  

Two Oxbridge undergraduates descend from their ivory towers and are off for a relaxing punt. Blissfully unaware of reality and physics, the boat drifts down busy streets as they regale and serenade the public. This promenade performance is based on an adapted electric vehicle, which can cover quite a large area if required - it works both as a surreal image glimpsed from a distance and as comic interaction. The punt requires a relatively flat surface. The punt also works as the "Ferry over the river Styx" - for Halloween or any ghoulish event - dressed with cobwebs and creepy crawlies. With Death standing in the stern and his faithful servant at the helm the boat drifts along on its way to the Underworld.

Furthermore, clients are often unaware of what is really, really good, as opposed to just plain average. The difference to Brett was clear and it was time to set a new standard. Brett wants his audience to see the difference and continually aims to inject a truly special factor to his work, supplying a smart, reliable and brilliant entertainment package which clients can rely on and that will be wholly appropriate to the audience. Brett has successfully provided professional entertainment to top corporate clients across the U.K. for over 10 years creating a fun and enjoyable experience for anyone who has been part of the show.

They have been empowered with the jurisdiction to enforce any rule or law they see fit. These may include: Breathing too loudly, Walking on the cracks in the pavement without a permit, walking without due care and attention, wearing a loud shirt in a built up area, possession of an offensive child, whistling or humming an infectious song, walking whilst using a mobile phone, or stopping in a no stopping area. Cars and pushchairs can fall foul of bad parking, speeding, balding tyres, or simply be pulled over for a random safety check! Watch out or you may find that you end up with a ticket! Immaculately turned out, they wear their uniforms with pride. The Wardens are loud, bold and colourful and will gather crowds as they administrate their ridiculous rules and regulations.
