Meet Abi Wightman - Our Director

Abi Wightman Daze Entertainment Director

Abi trained in classical dance for 15 years and went on to perform on festival stages and at nightlife events to fund her way through her Languages degree. There was never any grand plan to turn her hobby into a business, but her clients quickly realised her potential as an organiser and problem-solver, and before long ‘Daze Dancers’ became ‘Daze Entertainment’, and the rest as they say is history. From modest beginnings came an agency that now supplies performers to events in the UK, Europe, Africa and Asia.

Regarded as ‘one of the good ones’ amongst the performing community, Abi has meticulous and exacting standards both behind the scenes and on-site at events. As an artist liaison and stage manager she has directly managed the likes of Annie Mac, Artful Dodger, David Coultard, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Oxide & Neutrino and Sandy Sax.

Outside of work, Abi enjoys walking her German Shepherd dog, having adventures with her husband and daughter, and reading her Kindle in bed with a glass of wine!

Here are some of our amazing acts!

“I have been using Daze for over 15 years. Dealing with Abi, she always has a brilliant roster and entertainment suggestions for any brief I give her, no matter how vague or bizarre. Acts are always of the highest calibre, competitively priced , punctual and professional. I have used other agencies in the past to test the water, but none measure up to Daze. You can’t beat experience, passion and professionalism of this level, which is hard work in this field! Thank you Abi :-)”

ARTIST AND STAGE MANAGEMENT​

Artists stage-managed include Annie Mac, David Coulthard, Artful Dodger, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Oxide & Neutrino, and Sandy Sax
We manage artists from arrival, through tech run, to live show and departure, problem-solving along the way. We liaise with your production company to facilitate a dress rehearsal and fix any on-the-day snags, as well as running around getting cups of tea and sorting artist riders. We ensure everyone makes it to the stage or performance area at the right time, with the right microphone or cue cards, and work with your showcalling team to ensure smooth transitions on and off stage. We can also supply professional showcallers.

SELF-CONTAINED PERFORMERS​

Our off-the-shelf products; costumed performers with ready-made acts. We have an incredible roster of hand-picked performers.
Whether you’re looking for a foot-juggling circus performer to fit your Speakeasy party, a nose-nailing sideshow performer for your circus event, or a Scottish magician for your Burns Night celebration, we can help! We’ve spent 15 years building our roster of performers - and vetting their reliability, professionalism and stage presence - so all the hard work is done for you. Simply contact us about your event brief or theme, and we will suggest a ready-made act in one of our high-end costumes, to fit the bill. Our costume collection is vast and ever-growing, so if you’re looking for an off-the-shelf product that needs little to no rehearsal or bespoke preparation, we’re bound to have something to suit. If not, we can create a bespoke product from scratch for you, using our network of talent, lots of Pinterest brainstorming, and our in-house seamstress!

BESPOKE ACT CREATION​

Can’t find the right act? We will create something completely custom for you, from opera-singing octopus or Gatsby-themed prawn dancer!
It’s not often that people come to us with a theme that’s so wacky and wild that even we don’t have an act to suit, but it has been known! So if you don’t have anything in-house to fit your vision, we will create it. Previous projects have included a hand-painted tiger shaped photo frame for walkabout photo opportunities; an opera-singing octopus with moving tentacles: Art Deco Gatsby prawn dancing girls with tails; giant cocktail glass props with LED lighting; clockwork ballerina with turning LED key; Studio 54 inspired walkabout tree costume with snake hand puppet in arm; hummingbird costume; freestanding circus backdrop/frame with old fashioned lights; and numerous burlesque acts. If you have the budget, we have the vision and the creativity.

How We Work

From Conception...

Tell us about your event! Some clients like to have a chat on the phone about their ‘vision’, while others prefer it all blocked out in an email.

We’ll take your event date, location, timings, guest number and related information, and check the diary to ensure we can accommodate you.

...To Planning...

We will show you our existing brochures (complete with act description, photos and video links, so that you can see what you’re going to get). You tell us what you love – and what you don’t – so that we can build an entertainment solution that’s perfect for your event and budget. Once we’ve found the perfect recipe for you, we email a booking confirmation detailing everything you need. You give us the okay, and we send a copy to the performers; this ensures everyone is reading off the same hymn sheet ahead of the big day! We then issue an invoice for payment.

Our work can include site visits, risk assessments, Zoom meetings, rehearsals, trips to the seamstress, costume deliveries and collections.

...To The Main Event!

When the big day comes around, your performers will know what time they need to be on site, where to go, who to liaise with, what to wear, and what to perform. Or you’ll have a member of our management team on site to oversee all of this for you.

Our goal is for you to be able to enjoy your special event, without worrying about the entertainment elements.
