One of the rewarding aspects of the Brighton Savoy being a member of the Melbourne Wedding Group, is that I have met some very nice and talented people. Today I would like to introduce you to Rosie Kalber from Sensation Entertainment. Whether you need a wedding or corporate DJ, professional MC, floorshow with dancers or a live band, Rosie is the one for you. Rosie’s energy and enthusiasm for her passion for music and entertainment just shines through.
Rosie always had a passion for music, performing and entertainment. She was always the little girl standing in front of the mirror with the hairbrush or hairspray can, miming to the Spice Girls or Madonna, imagining herself on stage just like her favourite artist.
At school she pursued an academic career, thinking she would most likely end up working a “normal job”,and worked her way up to senior personal assistant at a boutique law firm. It appeared that her “fantasy performance career” had taken a backseat indefinitely.
A little bit of luck
It wasn’t until a little luck prevailed (or fate, however you may look at it), where she was discovered by an agent whilst singing at a karaoke bar. She was invited to audition for the female vocalist role in a national tribute show, and to her amazement was offered the role, ahead of nine other professional singers. Almost immediately she was performing in major Victorian venues, and even touring around Australia – it was an amazing time, and a brilliant creative learning curve for her.
Some of these venues include Crown Casino, The Adelaide Convention Centre, Hobart Casino, Alice Springs Casino and the Sydney Museum, plus almost every major venue in Victoria. In order to improve her craft, and create new opportunities for herself, Rosie took the opportunity to train as both a vocalist and vocal coach. She followed the technique taught by Michael Jackson and Jon Bon Jovi’s vocal coach, with the view that “If it’s good enough for them, it was certainly good enough for her!’ The training changed her voice and career direction again – she also started work as a professional vocal coach.
Rosie fell in love with performing, and moved towards working as an entertainment agent, whilst performing in the tribute show on the weekend. During this time Rosie gained valuable experience as an agent, and her love for event management developed. Her favourite event was a singing competition at Crown Casino, which included hosting and dancers. It was so much fun, and so rewarding.
The birth of Sensation Entertainment.
It was in 2007 that Rosie finally decided to take her passion for singing, performing and vocal coaching to a new level, and she started Sensation Entertainment as a full time business. Sensation Entertainment initially provided live music, MC and dance entertainment for clients, however in 2011 she took the opportunity to train as a professional DJ, so she could style complete functions for her clients, and hasn’t looked back since!
Her interest and passion for DJing was driven by a desire to style ALL kinds of music for her client functions. For example, if a Hindi wedding, why not be able to provide a Hindi set of music for the event? If a New Orleans themed event, why not provide Ragtime Jazz Music to help create the theme and mood? It was a wonderful decision, as she can DJ and MC more than any other performance medium in the industry, and she really enjoy styling the music for her clients.
Rosie and the Melbourne Wedding Group
The relationship Rosie has with the Melbourne Wedding Group has been invaluable in developing her skills in helping her connect with industry professionals and develop an understanding that enables the creation of a “team environment” for her clients.
Being part of the the group is an excellent way for her brides and grooms to connect with other wonderful suppliers for their special day, and she is proud of the work that the group does for the industry.
Rosie is a professional event coordinator, vocalist, DJ, MC and vocal coach, and loves every aspect of these roles. If you are looking for an amazingly talented performer that will ensure a memorable event please contact her on 0418 565 146 or Sensational Enterntainment.
