Through the years we have talked
with many people that have had, or
have seen, a party ruined by an
unprofessional disc jockey.
Remember, the music will be one of
the biggest parts of your party.
If the DJ you hire doesn't have much
experience, or if you are getting a
price quote that sounds too good to
be true, he or she probably has just
enough experience to ruin your
party. This is one of those
"get what you pay for" times.
Below is an outline that will give
you the knowledge you need to choose
the right entertainer for your
event. Remember, you can't
redo that special day. So
please take the time to thoroughly
check out the DJ you are
What To Look For:
all the hours of planning and all
the expenses, success will depend on
how well your DJ does his or her
job. An experienced DJ will
make all the difference in the world
to the final outcome of your event.
professional DJ should always have
current references. The DJ that
hasn't done an event in one or two
months may only be looking to pick
up some extra money here and there.
Having back-up equipment will ensure
that the show will go on. Ask
the DJ what what comes with the
price that was quoted to you.
If back-up equipment was not
mentioned, he may not have any.
Lack of spare mixers, amplifiers, cd
players, etc could mean the end of
your event if something were to
Talent agencies, booking agents, and
some mobile DJ companies book events
and send independent DJs to do your
party. If you book your DJ
direct, there is no agent fee added
to the total. By dealing direct
with a DJ professional, you will
know who you are booking and what
you will be getting.
professional DJ will always bring a
wide variety of music covering all
styles of music from the Big Band
swing era all the way to the latest
dance hits of today. This
enables them to cover any requests
from you and your guests.
you feel comfortable with the DJ
after talking with him or her over
the phone or having met in person?
You should receive good vibes from
your choice. A good DJ will
listen to you to know exactly what
you want rather than constantly
talking his sales pitch.
