The city’s favourite entertainment duo, Mr & Mrs Grey, have launched a new concept to keep the magic of music a-live, with professional performances to enjoy in your own home. Premiering By Invitation Only, the musicians will bring the party to you, complete with live entertainment, personal chefs, and mixologists, direct to doors of the Midlands.
Known for hosting the most lavish events across the city’s venues, including an immersive theatre dining experience at Marco Pierre White’s, weekly performances at Harvey Nichols, and entertainment providers for The Grand Hotel, which has just undergone a £45M refurbishment. Mr & Mrs Grey’s By Invitation Only will bring its little black book of performers, suppliers and luxurious added extras to sing from the same song-sheet. Alongside its musicians, the group will also feature local well-known chefs and mixologists to compose bespoke menus of delicious food and cocktails, fit for any occasion.
Whether it’s a summer garden party, a birthday bash, a wedding anniversary or simply a chance to reconnect with your family and friends, By Invitation Only will allow hosts to plan their party to the finest detail; from stylish decorations that completely transform their home; through to welcome drinks, canapes, and show-stopping music from @LuxuryLiveMusic, to help guests dance the night away. Better still, all elements of the party are planned, carried out and even cleaned up without the host having to lift a finger, so they can enjoy the event just as much as their guests.
Commenting on the launch of By Invitation Only, co-founder and director, Ben Grey said:
“We could not be more excited about adding this latest string to our bow, revolutionising how people entertain from home. We truly believe that By Invitation Only has all the ingredients for the perfect house-party: professional performances, stunning décor, and restaurant-quality food and drink.
“We hope this new service provides a way for people to be the host with the most, with none of the hassle! We’ve worked with a wealth of small businesses who are the best in the business at what they do, and we hope the Midlands gets behind it to make it a huge success.”
Having established their brand in 2012, husband-and-wife duo, Ben and Chloe-Jean, have grown their team of musicians and performers to a total of 45 performers, with residency spots across Birmingham, including the Mailbox, Resorts World Arena, Gaucho, Malmaison and more. It hopes that By Invitation Only will enable the team to further establish their presence beyond the city centre.
Fellow co-founder of By Invitation Only, Chloe-Jean Grey, added:
“We have had so many incredible opportunities over the years but being able to branch out further with By Invitation Only means that this is a really exciting time for us. We’ve missed performing these past few months, so being able to do what we love in front of families, friends and colleagues who have spent so much time apart is something that we are really looking forward to.”
