Tips to Hiring a DJ

  • ALWAYS finalize with your disc jockey no later than one week before your event. It is also important that your disc jockey knows how to pronounce important names.
  • The ability to communicate with an audience clearly and tastefully is a talent. During the reception, your disc jockey will inform you, your family members and vendors before an activity occurs so that everyone is prepared.
  • It is important that you inform the DJ of your musical preferences. If there are songs you do not want to hear, remember to make that known as well.
  • Seat older family or guests that may be sensitive about the sound furthest from the loudspeakers. Although a professional disc jockey will monitor the sound for reasonable noise levels, it is important that you know where the speakers will be placed since inevitably the volume will be louder as you get closer to the speakers. It is recommended that your DJ raise the speakers above head level to get more sound coverage and avoid “in your face” sound which can often make it difficult to have a conversation.
  • Place the disc jockey in a location that is not obstructed. The DJ will usually be your emcee, which means he/she needs to have a clear view of you and your guests to do an efficient job. If you place them in a room away from your guests or in a corner with an obstructed view, it will make entertaining and coordinating your event difficult.
  • Discuss cocktail and dinner music ahead of time. Cocktail and dinner time may be the perfect time to work in those non-dance favorites or play music for your older guests that may leave early.
  • Hire your disc jockey so that he is set-up and ready to go before your guests arrive, even if you are hiring musicians for cocktails/dinner. Remember that your disc jockey will be making preliminary announcements which may include bridal party introductions, toasts and other general information. Your disc jockey also serves as a “back-up” plan if your musicians show up late or take breaks.
