The show runs about 25 minutes on stage without any "add on" features outlined in the surprise options section. The Bus Boyz spend 15 minutes in the audience before the on-stage portion begins.
The show can start at any time depending on your program. We suggest starting after the main course when your guests are settled.
If we choose 8pm as an example show start time, the timeline would be:
- 7:45pm - The Bus Boyz enter room and begin pouring coffee, asking silly questions and making themselves visible to the guests.
- 7:55pm - The Fork Dropper takes a nasty fall on stage or in agreed upon area to get a quick reaction from the guests. Is he all right?
- 7:58pm - The Announcer takes the stage and declares there's a car with its lights on. He's requested to sing by a guest and begins singing.
- 7:59pm - The other Bus Boyz approach the stage from their places within the crowd and arrive on time to sing a big chord with the Announcer.
- 8:00pm - The show begins! Great harmony, dance moves, beatboxing, crowd interaction, a flip and one high energy show.
- 8:23pm - The Bus Boyz have the crowd on their feet for one final song.
- 8:26pm - The Bus Boyz take a bow, exit the stage.
- 8:27pm - The Bus Boyz return for an encore.
- 8:30pm - The show ends.
This timeline will vary if additional options such as improv requests, audience plants or the breakdancing manager are added.
No. Everything you hear is created by the human voice. Entirely a cappella. Yes, even the drums.
We leave the table service to your very capable wait staff. The Bus Boyz will be stopping by the dinner tables for quick interjections and silly questions, but not for actual service. The Bus Boyz are also very aware of your servers and will keep clear of their duties.
Our surprise options require a small additional fee. Please inquire with your event representative about pricing.
The Singing Bus Boyz perform recognizable, fun, upbeat pop tunes that are chosen to fit a wide range of ages, tastes and entertainment styles. In addition to being great tunes, they also serve to get your audience up on their feet and having a great time!
We have a great "requests" show in our surprise options section of the website. It's a great way to get your crowd involved.

We can, but it changes the show a bit. We prefer cordless.
Depending on availability, yes. The show is, however, currently being developed in five major U.S. cities and those casts will be available in 2008.
No. The show requires that the group be fully amplified.
Five singers — ahem — Bus Boyz.
