Club Big Wave™ Transforms Facilities into Dance Clubs

Club Big Wave™ (CBW) is a powerful antidote for event apathy. Our event planners in Connecticut will close your convention/meeting with a party that is exciting and memorable. We are well-known for coordinating private affairs, corporate events, and major events for associations and organizations. As well, Big Wave provides a truly exciting setting in which your guests, attendees, employees, and management dance the night away to their favorite music while viewing the actual recording stars performing on our high-definition stretch fabric videos screens. The energy level at our Club Big Wave events is unsurpassed. Surrounded by beautiful décor, our music and award-winning light show are non-stop from start to finish, and we never charge overtime.

A self-contained company for event production in NYC and Connecticut, Big Wave transforms any indoor or outdoor facility into a spectacular yet elegant dance club, custom designed to fit any group size, from 50 to 10,000. We provide all of the following for your special event:

  • 30,000-watt JBL Audio System
  • Award-winning LED and Intelligent Light Show
  • Christie/Panasonic HD Video
  • Beautiful High-Tech Décor
  • Event Manager
  • DJ, MC, & LD

We’ve been making waves since the birth of MTV. Originally known as Wild Video Dance Party®, which toured hundreds of colleges, universities, and military bases during the 1980s, then Club Coca-Cola®, CBW expanded into the corporate market in the 1990s. Since then, we’ve performed at hundreds of major corporate destinations nationally, as well as in Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. We are celebrated for our ability to mix videos from the disco era; alternative music from the 1980s; dance music from the 1990s; and Latin, hip-hop, techno and today’s dance-oriented Top 40.

In addition to numerous pharmaceutical firms our list of satisfied corporate clients includes the following:

  • Cisco
  • Apple
  • Intel
  • IBM
  • Siemens
  • McKinsey & Company
  • Arthur Andersen
  • Ernst & Young
  • Deloitte Touche
  • Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting

Our event planner in Manhattan has run the closing event for five Microsoft Global Summits with more than 9,000 employees in attendance. As well as being the principal entertainment, CBW opens other main attractions and closes them after we’ve performed for up to 65 minutes or more. And, of course, we can I-MAG your main attraction. In that capacity, we’ve worked with Earth, Wind & Fire; the B 52s; Kool and the Gang; the Village People; Smash Mouth; the Stray Cats; and Huey Lewis, among others. We can also work with celebrity MC’s and DJ’s. We guarantee an uncommonly successful high-energy event that generates buzz for years.
