Established in Australia in 1999 by Mark Bradley and Darryl Lovegrove, ‘THE THREE WAITERS’ concept remains totally unique in the industry and has become one of the most sought after acts on the national and international corporate entertainment circuit. Mardar Management also manages soloist performers for the same market. Their charter is to provide sophisticated, high quality entertainment, with a sense of humour and an element of surprise.
Having performed more than 4,000 shows in 55 countries with over 60 performers performing for us worldwide, 'The Three Waiters' has become one of the most sought after acts in the national and international corporate entertainment sector.
Over the last 20 years both of us have been fortunate enough to have been involved in the wonderful world of show business, treading the boards of opera, musical theatre, rock opera, plays, film and television. It is due to this exposure in the industry that we have been able to pull together the finest group of performers. All of our performers are solo performers in their own right with a vast professional experience in both opera and musical theatre. Each performer has come through a rigid audition process as not only is it imperative that they are outstanding vocalists but must also be good actors, improvisers and bring with them a unique personality. No matter how different the audiences are, their reaction is always the same - sheer enjoyment, surprise and elation.
As an important part of the act, each performer actually works the floor as a waiter for some time before the performance begins. They also dress and act the same as the "real" waiters thus giving no clues of what is about to come. Picture your next corporate function, dinner. The evening is running according to plan with the usual mixing and mingling of invited guests and clients. Suddenly, one of the food or beverage waiters bursts into an aria from a well-known opera or song from a popular Broadway musical. Your guests are simultaneously stunned by the waiter's behaviour and intrigued by the fact that the waiter sang so well!
As the evening progresses, another waiter effects a similar spontaneous rendition of his own - with matching professional aplomb! At this stage, the collective "audience" realises that all is not as it seems and they begin to anticipate some progression of the unexpected yet highly enjoyable theatrics.
Just as the two waiters satisfy this anticipation by staging an impromptu vocal "duel", the audience are then further surprised by a "gate crashing" third waiter and the three proceed to "out-do" each other "three tenors" style.
