We provide entertainment programs for all events, to mark a calendar festival (e.g. Chinese New Year), to support a particular keynote or theme at a corporate affair (e.g. a new branch in Ningbo, China, celebrating Asian Heritage Day at a New York agency), or to enhance the ambience or festivity of a private or community occasion.

Here are some ideas for the occasion

  • Strike an auspicious note with the traditional groundbreaking ritual of the lion dance
  • Set an ambience of the Chinese “tea house” with an instrumental duo, trio or quartet
  • Have a Chinese calligrapher write up the heart’s best wishes for your guests on Chinese mini-scrolls or a suitable souvenir item to give away
  • Tease the party with a riotous performance of Monkey King who may pass out candy, etc. to the guests
  • Station fortune tellers to deliver the year’s predictions: generally a great attraction.

Cost & Logistics

  • Rates are scaled down according to the number of acts booked per venue/event.
  • down according to the number of acts booked per venue/event. Single artist acts will be rated higher per artist than group acts.
