The city of Cleveland, Ohio is full to the brim of cultural things
to see and do. Let’s take a look at what Cleveland has to offer in terms of
performing arts, music, and literature.
Cleveland has the second-largest performing arts center in the whole
of the U.S. – Playhouse Square. This is second only to the Lincoln Center in
New York City.
In Playhouse Square, you will find the Ohio Theatre, Hannah Theater, Allen Theater, Palace Theater, and State Theater. This is a hub for many Broadway Musicals and the city has produced lots of well-known actors as well as the renowned comedian Bob Hope.
Elsewhere in Cleveland, there is the Karamu House. This is
America’s oldest African-American theater and dates back to the 1920s.
Cleveland is also home to one of the world’s best orchestras, The Cleveland Orchestra. This is considered to be the finest in the U.S. During the winter, the orchestra plays at Severance Hall, in University Circle, and during the summer, it can be found at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls.
During the 60s and 70s, Cleveland gained a reputation in rock music
and even hosted the World Series of Rock from 1974 to 1980. If this is
something you’re interested in, visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, located
in downtown, Cleveland. This is a museum that celebrates the most influential
and best-known figures, artists, producers, and engineers of rock and roll
Jazz is also popular in Cleveland and has a long history here. The Tri-C Jazz Fest is held in Cleveland every year. For jazz lovers, Bop Stop on Detroit Avenue is a great place to pay a visit.
Polka has been and continues to be, popular in Cleveland. There is even a sub-genre of polka called Cleveland-style. For those interested, there is the Polka Hall of Fame, which is worth a visit. This traces the Cleveland-style polka from its roots in Slovenia in the 19th century, through the factory and mining towns of America, to the post-war years.
If you like piano music, The Velvet Tango Room is a great location. From Monday to Thursday there are pianists from 9 pm and the cocktails are great too!
The modernist poet, Hart Crane, was born not far from Cleveland. The memorial park along the Cuyahoga left bank is dedicated to him. There is also a marker where his childhood home sat in University Circle. Elsewhere, there is a statue behind the Kelvin Smith Library at Case Western Reserve University’s Campus.
If you’re into poetry, there are regular readings at many Cleveland bookstores and coffee shops. If you’re visiting in July, the Cleveland Inkubator is a great 4-day festival that is free. It’s for writers and readers alike and offers workshops, keynote speeches, book swaps, and open mic sessions.
Another great event is hosted by the Maltz Performing Arts Center and is called the Writer’s Center Stage. This is a series of speeches and appearances by famous writers. Their website has a calendar of events where you can purchase tickets.

May 18, 2019 / Kaila Weston / Comments Off on The Big Black Photo Booth: How an Enclosed Booth Could Help Your Next Event
Photo booths are becoming an increasingly popular way of entertaining guests. Whether it’s a wedding, office party or big corporate event, a photo booth provides both entertainment and souvenirs. Don’t know whether to choose an open or enclosed photo booth? Read on to find out why our Big Black Photo Booth is the one for your event.
If you’re struggling thinking of everything you need for your wedding party, hiring a photo booth can check many boxes off your list. Read on to find the 6 reasons why having a photo booth for your big day is a great idea!
1. Entertainment for guests of all ages
Once the “I Do’s” are shared, weddings tend to be long events for your guests so they’ll need things to do to keep them entertained in between the highlights. A photo booth is a great idea for a wedding with any number and age of guests. Young kids will love being silly in front of the camera and having fun with props, whilst the adults will love trying something a bit different! It’s also a great activity for guests when there’s downtime during the event.
2. Wedding Favors
It’s often tricky to decide on the best wedding favors for your guests. It’s hard to find something that is unique that everyone will appreciate. With a wedding photo booth, your guests can have fun and produce their own souvenir from the event!
3. Guest Book
In a similar way to wedding favors, a photo booth can be used as a unique way of creating a guest book. Guests can enter the booth and get 2 copies of their picture – one can be for them to keep and the other can be for them to stick in your guest book next to their message. Not only will you have a memory of who attended your wedding, but you’ll have a souvenir of exactly what they looked like when you got wed! A photo guest book will have you reminiscing about your wonderful wedding day for years to come and will be something to show your grandchildren one day!
As we’ve already mentioned, a photo booth checks lots of boxes but the
most important one is that it creates memories. After all, you want to be able
to remember your wedding forever right? A photo booth creates heaps of fun
memories. And, if ever the memories do start to fade, you’ve got the photos to
look back on!
Let’s face it, it will be weeks if not months before your official wedding photos are ready! A photo booth gives you instant access to pictures right then and there! With your photo booth prints, you will have something to look at and reminisce with right on the spot!
6. Ice Breaker
Our final reason for hiring a photo booth at your wedding is that it’s a great ice breaker. This is a time in your life when everyone you love and care about is in the same place. When two families join like in a wedding, there are many guests from either side that have never met but who are equally important in your lives. A photo booth is a great way to get your guests to meet and get to know each other a little bit!
Once you’ve decided that you need a photo booth at your wedding, the hard part starts – which type of photo booth do you go for?!
April 27, 2019 / Kaila Weston / Comments Off on The Open Air Photo Booth: A Fun Alternative to the Traditional Enclosed Photo Booth
What is the Open Air
is a photo booth that is not contained within a frame or a curtain. There is a
kiosk-style photo booth stand and guests can choose their props just like with
any of our photo booths. We have many different backdrops available too, so you
can really tailor the experience for your guests. Our Open Air Photo Booth is great for any
event and is a really popular choice!
What Can You do in The Open Air Photo Booth?
Unleash your inner model with the Open Air Photo Booth! This booth has an interactive touch screen that is super easy to use. What’s more, the green screen option means that you can combine props and pretend to be whoever you want, wherever you want. Fancy being Elvis in Las Vegas? You can! There are so many possibilities – you and your guests will have so much fun making memories to last a lifetime.
How Can You Get a Copy of Your Images?
With the Open Air Photo Booth, you have numerous options for getting a copy of your photos. Not only can you go traditional with prints but you can also share via the internet! Within the print option, you can choose the color effect and quantity of prints for your photos. Digitally, you can send your photos via email, text, or you can upload to your favorite social media site.
Who Might Want to Use it?
this photo booth doesn’t take up a specific size of space, it’s ideal for
locations where space is limited either in surface area or height. It still
gives you the same fun as any other photo booth and can still fit large groups
in its space.
This photo booth is a top choice for school proms and college parties. There’s something about students watching each other have fun taking pictures and bouncing new photo booth ideas off each other!
you don’t fall into the school or college category, this is still a great photo
booth for your party. Imagine seeing your grandmother have fun with all of the
props in an open photo booth? You wouldn’t be able to enjoy that experience in
an enclosed booth.
Why Should You Choose the Open Air Photo Booth Above Other Types of Photo Booth?
The great thing about the Open Air Photo Booth is that you can see what’s going on! Your guests will be inspired by what others do, so it can really turn into a whole lot of fun. An open booth can be a great way to break the ice among groups of guests who might not know each other very well. Open-air booths have a variety of backdrop choices too! You can really tailor your event however you choose.
