[International Food Services Corporation]- Needed: A personable performer who can cover James Taylor all evening and make the CEO feel special for his birthday.

Not every band can cover one artist for an entire evening. Because of the relationship we have built with a major tribute group, we were able to find “the” perfect James Taylor tribute, and the evening was a huge success!

Event and Entertainment Planning

[Commercial Insurance Brokerage]-Needed: A unique way to entertain guests at a business open house put on for clients.

What we suggested: an upscale strolling magician who would work not only in a nonobtrusive way while entertaining, but be an icebreaker for small groups as well.

What they said afterwards: “Out of this world, the guests left raving, impressed with the way he worked in the crowds. Ray Smerlin made us feel very special.”


[Multi-State Hi-Tech Firm]- Needed: An evening of laughter at the holiday party with a standup comedian.

When it comes to stand up comedy, you either do it spot on perfect or just go home. You cannot take a chance on anything less than professional.

What they said afterwards: “Very entertaining and perfect for our group, great!, very funny without being vulgar, the experience was exceptional!”


With your entertainment partner, you will have someone who gives their every bit of energy in giving you their best. I make connections, build long lasting relationships, and leave you feeling that someone really cares about you.

Ray’s talent is in matching the perfect entertainment based on events and audiences. Why would you start from scratch and take chances when this great opportunity is right here for you? Ray puts all of his resources to work for you, guaranteeing that your guests will have a blast. Here’s a recent text that sums it up: “Heard lots of great comments about the show and heard the client discussing you and booking acts through you, both before and this year and he complimented your professionalism and the accuracy of your suggestions and your questions about what they wanted and needed.”
