The Life Blood Of Your Event

If you're putting on an event such as a wedding or a party and you've decided to have a DJ, then your event is guided and managed by your disc jockey. Let's face it, a good one or bad one will make or break any event. We are the engine that drives your party. With that said, imagine the client or bride listing the DJ as the last step on her to do list. It often happens. I had a bride call me 3 days before her reception. Timing was on her side for I just had a cancellation. But, good Disc Jockeys are booked, so guess what they get? Yes, a possible failed wedding reception to an inexperienced Disc Jockey. Her memories are ruined.

Take away the DJ for a moment or the band. What do you get? A bunch of people talking with maybe a cheap radio with commercials. Spectacular and unforgettable receptions are guided by a great DJ who knows the crowd and music. Believe me, a bride wants her wedding evening to be memorable and last in her mind for years to come! Why put the DJ on the back burner of her schedule? This is a mystery and possible formula for disaster. Happens all too often !

Also, the DJ may have a spectacular lazer light show. Also, a good one knows when to speak, how often, and how motivational his/her voice is. Just the right tunes at the right time leaving the crowd desperate for a slow tune from shear dance exhaustion !

Clients price check over the phone are cutting themselves short. They need to get to know a DJ's style to fit you and your guests personalities. Song selection and announcements if any. Then, maybe later in the e-mails or literature find the mid-range or average prices just by talking to a few. Some will have different packages with more services.

To exaggerate, picture this: "Hello, DJ A1 here!" "Yes, I'm calling to check your prices." "Mine is 20 dollars" "Thank you, Goodbye". "Hello, DJ A2 here! and my price is 5 dollars" "Thank You, Goodbye". "Hello, DJ A3 here! and my price is only a dollar" "Thank you, Let's book you, now".

Months later--"Why did you play only hip hop when we wanted country? Why, did you not say a word over the microphone? Why were you outside having a beer most of the evening? SO, you see folks, "Value" is what you are aiming for. I bet that 5 dollar DJ would have been just fine if not awesome. You don't need the most expensive DJ or heaven forbid, the cheapest. Middle of the road is advisable and you'll get more personal attention to boot.

Saying this with 15 years under my belt from backyard parties to exclusive weddings at extravagant venues. The cake and decorations do not make the reception or party. The disc jockey does. Most overlooked but most important. He/She is usually the last to be called but is the engine to run the show.

You're absolutely correct! I've had numerous DJ friends growing up, all of them had little experience, and it really showed. I recently went to my cousins wedding, who has been in the business for years, and, though he didn't dj his own wedding, of course, he employed another seasoned pro, and WOW! What a difference.

You know I never thought about the DJ's style and what not. I can just imagine a redneck wedding where the DJ only played classical music. That would be a hoot but horrible. You are definitely right about the DJ being the life blood of the party. It's the difference between people having a boring time or the time of their life. The difference between an early evening or watching the sun come up. Great article Scotty.
