    We hired a local band to provide the entertainment/pastime/amusement at the office party.


    Do all of the underlined words fit in the above sample? If not, why not? Thanks.

    Entertainment is the only one that really fits.

    "Pastime" is a hobby or something done by a single person....not a group or party.

    "Amusement" is something funny. Presumably the band is serious and not doing this to be funny.
