Despite being blind nearly his entire life, Mr. Foster turned his passion for entertainment into a successful company with the support of his family.

A fairytale wedding becomes reality with Wayne Foster Entertainment. Whether at a beach, a winery, or your favorite venue, the immaculate and sparkling energy of the musicians as you walk into the celebration sets the ambiance for the entire evening. From a contemporary string quartet playing electric strings to a classical string quartet on acoustic strings, the wide range of music can be specified to your taste.
As the event progresses, so does the music. Wayne Foster’s musicians specialize in continuously playing music to fit the moment. The vibe of the music changes from the ceremony to cocktail, then on to reception. “When the guests come into the reception it’s upbeat, not high energy dance music that you experience later, not soft background music, but dance-in music that creates the feeling for the celebration,” says Jacqueline. Musicians can perform anything from Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars. “That’s a big part of what we do,” she says. “The wide variety of music, the authenticity of the music, and the right song at the right time.” Wayne Foster Entertainment focuses on the importance of making sure the client’s entire audience is pleased with the selection of music and has a great time.
The company has grown throughout the years. Wayne Foster Entertainment began with bands but grew to full productions as the company flourished. Jacqueline Foster SHOWDANCE® is a program with a range of different shows and themes that guests can enjoy no matter the size of the event. The concept is theatrical, musical, and visual with an array of colorful costumes, spectacular dancers, and amazing choreography. The guests can be seated to enjoy the performance, or they can dance alongside the performers, as SHOWDANCE® is very interactive. “We find that show elements are much more well received when the guests are able to be up and dancing and having fun as well, not just watching,” says Jacqueline. The performers capture the guest’s attention through their artistic talent.
Jacqueline Foster SHOWDANCE® has frequented hotels in Las Vegas. The grand opening for the Aria Hotel had 150 performers and 9 different productions in front of 3,000 guests.

The wide variety of music and entertainment can range from a beautiful violin performance to a thrilling fire-eater. SHOWDANCE® recently produced a corporate function with a spectacular Cabaret performance at Le Grand Hotel in Paris, France.
But Wayne Foster doesn’t just focus on entertainment. Wayne and Marin established a foundation that helps the blind with any challenge they may encounter. Aptly called “The Wayne Foster Foundation for the Success of the Blind,” it includes connecting individuals to the right doctors, some of which have helped miraculously cure eye disorders. The focus of the foundation is to help the blind acclimate to life and succeed in any way they can.
From playing at small weddings and grand performances to providing extensive resources for the blind, the common theme for Wayne Foster Entertainment is to bring genuine happiness for all involved. They take pride in their work and make sure that every event is unique in its own way.
