I have been working with various non-profit organizations to host events ranging from 50-+1, 000 crowds for the past six years. Currently looking for smaller events to get started focusing on dinners, awards ceremonies, and fundraising events.
Joe has been emceeing for Richmond's Annual Filipino Festival for the last 6 years since 2012. This is a 2- day event held every 2nd weekend of August ,attended by thousands with non-stop entertainment on Friday from 5-10 pm and Saturday from 10 am-10 pm. At our last event in August 2017, we had an estimated attendance of more than 15,000 on Friday night. Joe was the solo emcee.
Performers include solo singers, bands, dance groups from Richmond & other cities. Joe is a thorough professional who engages the multi cultural, diverse audience, charms & delights them with his timely reminders.
Joe never fails to hold the attention of the crowd, he is very flexible with program changes and is able to deal with the many personalities he encounters. He has faced many challenges like the severe tornado-like weather we once had & has maintained his composure, assisting the other members of the Entertainment team. He enjoys what he's doing, works long hours in this event and definitely delivers ! He is a very valued emcee, one of a kind!
As the Entertainment chairman for the past 12 years in this annual event, I can say that we are so blessed to have Joe!
Price Range: $0-$15 per hour
Gig Length: 60 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
I should respond to a lead within 48 hours.
Preferably a week in advance with schedule/agenda/program and script if possible as well as any other duties and request. I will review the information and send back any changes or questions I have. I can create my own introduction for speakers if needed (small additional fee).
I will show up at least 30 minutes prior to the event, sooner if necessary. Once there I will coordinate with event organizer to review the program and meet any of the speakers and that will continue until the end of the event.
My attire will depend on requests as well as if any are provided.
I am still new to doing this professionally so I am open to requests and changes to what is needed., I am flexible and can make changes both beforehand and on the fly during the event as necessary.
I have been hosting events for the past 6 years. These events have been through local organizations I have been part of for sometime. I wish to continue to develop my skills and take my emceeing to the next level by broadening the events and helping out other organizations.
The events i have done in the past have been part of two different groups:
The first type of events include annual military awards balls and graduations ceremony for United States Naval Sea Cadet Corp. These were formal events with many introductions and award readings for +100 people.
I have also emceed to +1,000 crowds for the annual Richmond Filipino Festival for the past 6 years. This even required up to the act changes on scheduling, as well as consistent announcements pertaining to sponsorships, scheduling, and other information.
