Nightmusic is also an excellent option for party entertainment. It's run by a British guy who was extremely helpful for our wedding anniversary and has hundreds of interesting looking performers: They supply many of the 5 star hotels in Dubai with singers, DJs and bands so we were able to see the bands live before booking them.
