Annual Entertainment Showcase

Find what’s new in event entertainment



G.L. Berg Entertainment has been a trusted entertainment partner to our clients for over 30 years. We know our clients seek to hire only the best in the entertainment business, whether they are looking for comedians, musicians, specialty acts, bands, magicians, speakers, dancers, singers, circus acrobats, or an act that is so unique it can’t even be described!


Our clients want to bring the latest and greatest entertainment to their audience...and we make that happen.

Each year we host our Entertainment Showcase to help our clients find more of what they are looking for. We started hosting a showcase event in 1994 and have since featured over 141 different acts for our 7,000+ clients and guests. Our clients come from all over the country, representing state and county fairs and festivals, theaters, corporations, associations, colleges, high schools, parks and recreation departments, libraries, event planners and more.

See below for the full list of the acts we’ve featured over the years. The acts that have showcased the most times are James Wedgwood and Tonic Sol-fa (5 times each), Sean Emery (4 times) and C. Willi Myles, Tim Gabrielson and George Maurer (3 times each).

We are looking ahead to our annual showcase coming up again on October 7th. This event is a time for our clients to discover a few of the new acts we’ve signed, but also a time to celebrate, relax, enjoy, and to be genuinely inspired. With a renewed appreciation for how entertainment brings us together, we look forward to seeing clients and friends, old and new, back for our 2021 showcase.

This year we will be showcasing 5 acts for our clients and guests to check out and enjoy! The showcase begins at 7:30pm and lasts approximately 1.5 hours. We promise a lot of fun for all attending, and hope to see you there.
