PERFORMER OF THE WEEK – Newby Grace

NEWBY’S MUSIC SHOW — an outstanding musical show, creates lots of fun, energy & musical entertainment at parties for all ages!!

NewbyNewby’s interactive singalong & fun musical performance includes songs the whole family can enjoy and “perform” — becoming the “stars of the show.” Newby plays keyboard and sings familiar songs for everyone to clap their hands, stomp their feet and sing along ! Easy to play, fun musical instruments like kazoos, triangles and bells are handed out and give kids a chance to be part of the show. Children’s party, schools, pre-schools or library shows — Newby brings super fun to every  kind of party and event.

For birthday parties Newby has created a fun Scavenger Hunt especially for the birthday child!! The idea started when Newby’s nieces and nephews celebrated birthdays! He would hide clues written on pieces of paper -hidden tucked under the sofa, near a lamp, next to the toaster, etc – these clever little poems  directed the birthday child to the next clue until they finally found a special hidden birthday present just for them! The children had such a ball with this that Newby has incorporated the “Scavenger Hunt” in his Birthday Party Package.

Newby is also a member of Soul Unit, a high energy 5 piece R & B soul band. Soul Unit is available for private parties, clubs, wedding receptions, and any type of event that is looking for an excellent upbeat band! Soul Unit’s funky and soulful tunes will keep  guests entertained and dancing the night away.  His vocals and keyboard bring to Soul Unit, the fullness and passion of a lifelong love for music. Stevie Wonder is his favorite artist of all time and biggest musical influence.  Newby performs renditions of R & B, jazz, blues & soul music in an inimitable soulful and heartfelt style.

Hello world!

Susan Grace, owner of EncorENTERTAINMENT

Hi! Welcome to EncorENTERTAINMENT!

Here’s a little bit of history about me and my company. I started EncorENTERTAINMENT in 1986 with a business loan of $500 to place a small ad in the Yellow Pages. My roster of performers was a rolodex with names of my favorite performers – mostly family (my Dad was a fine pianist and sang the old “standards” Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett –  and both my brothers, Peter & Newby Grace are musicians. I also had in the rolodex my favorite regional musicians & bands – Bobby Greene, John Harrison and Armsted Christian. In 1998 my husband, Rich Taber joined the company and was instrumental in encouraging me to expand the entertainment services and become involved in complete event planning and public relations. In over 25 years my roster of performers has grown to  …… well, the sky’s the limit! And the company has expanded to include EncorEVENTS – event planning, promotion and public relations!
