Sorority Function - 1920s Murder Mystery Themed

What a guy - we had 240 people for my sorority function and this guy nailed it. Not only did he entertain our guests with his wonderfully thought out script, but he continued the night allowing everyone to dance to all of their favorite songs. With that many college students excited to be at the event, he showed an immense amount of patience while trying to get the mystery started. Everyone loved it!
Eric - it was great working with you! Such a wonderful person and a great party idea!

A successful holiday party!

A good time was had by all. The dance floor has never been so crowded. Eric played something for everyone--ages ranging from 20-60+.

Beyond Awesome!!

Eric and Zowie Entertainment are an absolute joy to work with!! Throwing a party for 200+ people wearing costumes (Halloween) can be challenging, not to mention stressful, hectic, and nightmarish; but Eric shows up beyond prepared and just makes everything flow! 5 gold starts isn't enough....more like he deserves 20! If you are looking for someone to provide you with the ability to actually sit down and enjoy your own party, look no further than Zowie Entertainment!!!

The Perfect Entertainment for a Fundraiser

I hired Eric for a luau fundraising event at a local restaurant. He was incredibly friendly, professional and his musical talents were perfection! He was on time for every meeting and went out of his way to make things easy for me Eric had our crowd up on their feet dancing and singing--even hula hooping! He played the guitar and sang early in the evening, and switched to DJ later on. Thanks Eric, for making our event a huge success.

Awesome performance as Red Ranger

We hired Eric for our son's 4th birthday party. He was fabulous and the sword fight with 4 preschoolers was so entertaining! It made me tired just watching! Thanks for your quick responses in planning and execution as well! Best birthday party ever!

Zowie Entertainment does everything

We hired Zowie Entertainment for our wedding and it was a big success. Everything went smoothly, we didn't spend any time worrying about any of it! One big plus of Zowie Entertainment is that you can hire one company and that takes care of everything from lighting and decor to live music, videography and DJ/Karaoke dance party. We had them do it all. What is more is that Eric asked us about our rain plans for our outdoor wedding. Well, we didn't have any, lucky for us he had a whole plan B set up and of course it did rain!

The best wedding singer ever

Eric Everett is wonderful. He returned my calls and e-mail in a timely manner every time. He is easy to work with, sang all of the songs requested, did a wonderful job. All of the people at our wedding commented on what a beautiful voice he had and want a talented guitarist he is. He was willing to accompany family members who wanted to sing and he was so encouraging and supportive of all of our efforts. I would hire Eric again in a heart beat.

Overview

FUN! Enjoyment! Happiness! A wonderful tired feeling from dancing a whole bunch!

Additional Booking Notes

I can provide different sizes of sound and lighting systems, including low wattage LED systems.

Oh and that number of performances list is very approximate. I have been performing, directing & producing shows since the 80's and it's a little tough to recall. I think more about what's ahead! :) Also, there have been fewer performances as I have been in transition moving the business form the New York City area to Asheville, North Carolina.

Zowie Entertainment

Hi! I’m Eric Everett and Zowie Entertainment is mostly me, though I will bring in others to help with larger events. I have spent most of my life doing shows in the New York City area, but since most of my family has moved to Asheville, NC, I have followed along and have relocated my business home base here. You will find that that is why most the many testimonials you will find on my website at www.ZowieEntertainment.com are from the NYC area.

In 1994, when I was teaching theater full time, I formed this company to create & distribute my music CDs. With the success of my kids’ CD & Video “Animal Party” in 2000, I turned my attention full time to bringing music & laughter to a wider audience. Fortified with 20 years teaching experience in grades K-12 and 26 working in Arts and Entertainment, I have ooodles of experience to draw upon. I’m told that being from Wisconsin gives me a basis for trustworthiness and integrity :) I guess that means I stand by my work and will always give you a good show!

After working with entertainers, technicians and entertainment companies for many years, I have a large network of experience to draw upon for the needs of bigger events to bring together just about anything you need. I will always be there to coordinate the success of the show, party, cookout, wedding, luau, or landmark historical event.

I’m here to help you with planning to ideas to dreamscape pool party visions. Everything from the age-appropriate content of the entertainment to the attention to technical detail (have you made rain plans? got enough power?). In ANY size event, there are LOTS of potential details! But you don’t have to worry about them, that’s why I’m here to help!

I know that all you really wanted to know was who Zowie is. I named the company after the family cat.
