When BMC hosted their holiday party they hired Dan and Kat to create an evening of fun for their employees at San Jose's Glass House. When they found out that we make it a practice to create new routines so repeat guests wouldn't see the same show twice BMC retained the dinner show team two more times in less than 12 months, once for an onsite luncheon, and another dinner show buy-out with signature lobster salad and drunken prawns cooked tableside in a visual display. Dan procured and negotiated several acts including a world class acrobat for their event.
We've helped create timelines, coordinate performers, welcome your guest and set the mood with live musicians, keep it culturally relevant to highlight the theme and even work with the video production staff to create a highlight reel so the event would be remembered long after the event was over.
When Paypal's executive globalization team brought in nine executives from around the world they chose the Bay Area Dinner Show team to create a customized dinner menu including a presentation of "flaming drunken shrimps" cooked table side and a giant five-pound lobster fruit salad. In addition three of the best Bay Area variety entertainers created the Dan Chan Presents: "Variety Spectacle".
When Apple wanted to treat their engineering teams they decided to customize their dining experience in a private room in an elegantly appointed Michelin rated venue. The layout was completely overhauled in order to accommodate this event. Tables, booths, and many fixtures were temporarily moved to create the perfect environment. A separate lounge area with was modified with "high tops" to create an arrival space and the perfect environment for the cocktail hour. And a "magical menu" was created to highlight some of the venues' specialties.
Word got around quickly and Apple employees heard what a wonderful time the engineering team had, within the same week another Apple group decided to book another event. This time it was for a group of interns and temporary workers they were on a smaller budget. To keep the cost lower they decided upon a semi-private event at Dynasty, additional ticketing would be sold to the public or open to other corporations on the same date. The Carl Fox real estate company booked a small group on the same date as well. Each company had private dining in their own VIP rooms. The main show was combined allowing for more energy, more performers and larger production.
When China Telecom chose to treat fifty of their best customers to an evening of entertainment they choose Dan Chan presents to create a full evening of fun with a customized timeline at a popular Michelin rated venue. As VIP guests arrived they were greeted with a virtuoso violin player as cocktail and passed horderves were served. The dinner included a tasting menu to suit the taste of these discerning and distinguished guests. To create the ultimate show experience two rooms were used one for dining and one for the show. The guests were seated with theater seating to maximize the impact of the show.
When Pfizer hosted their holiday party they hired Dan and one of his team members to create less formal dinner show at 25 Lusk. Because of the layout of the restaurant, Pfizer opted to emphasize world class walk around magic.
When Google inquired about a custom tailored dinner show, Dan suggested bringing a former Google employee who happens to also be one of the nation's top entertainers. With customized jokes, references to OKR's (Objectives and Key Results) and other insider knowledge, the team was able to create an over the top unforgettable evening.
When Palm Valley Estates wanted to create and over the top event they asked Dan to create an over the top, full stage spectacle with backdrop, full DJ, uplighting, spotlights and fog machine.
The above examples are only some of the custom ideas we've implemented. We'd love to implement the following ideas for your next event. A walnut or pea dish served after performing the classic shell game or perhaps a shadow puppet routine ending with a loud bang a rabbit disappearing and a rabbit dish appearing.
