Celebrate in the Club

So, recently this story went viral about a man who got embalmed to be stood on stage at a club. It’s pretty wild but everyone has their own wishes and requests. This all leaves me with a few questions about having a life celebration in a club.

1) What Music do you Play?

For a club life celebration, do you just play standard bangers or do you blare “Go Rest High On The Mountain” and organ music all night long? Maybe a little bit of both!

2) Do You Get a Percentage of the Door or the Bar?

I mean, if your life celebrations are making venue money- aren’t you entitled to a little bit of revenue.

3) As a Doorman, are you also the Bouncer?

Let’s face it, of all the important jobs funeral professionals do, one of the most important is holding the door. But, clubs require bouncers with a certain set of skills or a lot of mass to make sure things don’t get too out of control. So, is the Intern supposed to brush up on a little MMA or do you have to train the bouncers on grief etiquette?
