Alistair Tober, Owner VIPs Entertainment, LLC- was inspired to start VIPs Entertainment, LLC after leaving the hit broadway musical, ‘Rock of Ages,” in which he was an original member and an integral part of the cast, developing the vocal harmonies from the shows first ever workshop as well as several stages of the production. Having years of experience as a lead singer and band leader, it seemed a natural transition to take his vast arsenal of musical ability and taste and develop a company that produces the best in live bands, singers and musical acts for everything from corporate events, to weddings, private parties and large scale public concerts.
Having the 80s so close to his heart and a vast knowledge of the music, Alistair began with The Young Guns 80s Band as the flagship of the company, quickly adding The Uptown Live Band as a variety option for wedding clients and those looking for the energy of a variety band like no other and calling upon his years of touring with a Big Band Jazz orchestra to add Come Fly With Me as a classic and timeless addition to his roster of bands.
An important aspect of his company is that each client is not just an email or a transaction, but rather treated with the care and attention they deserve, to not only customize the songs, set lists and productions we develop, but to create a personal relationship with our clients that allows you to ask the right questions, hire the people and talents you deserve and not have to wonder, “did I get the band I saw, and did I truly get what I paid for?”
So, how is this possible? The answer is simple, hands on interaction and creation, not sitting behind a computer just booking events but rather writing music, arranging songs, directing bands and shows, working alongside the top event planners, celebrity chefs, high profile star clients and still performs with the talented acts he produces. From the inception of ideas like The Members Only Yacht Club and the creative genius behind the hottest new 90s band Bayside High or developing fresh live musical acts that clients in their 20s and 30s are looking to book for their weddings and events, VIPs Entertainment is not past its prime but rather always on the cutting edge of new tribute acts. Unlike the same old dusty companies where you are just sent a band and the owner has no idea who anyone is within their own company, VIPs Entertainment is a family that has offices in Los Angeles, Nashville and Houston, a professional collection of carefully selected people that not only take pride in their artistry but pay close attention to the needs and the tastes of each and every client!
