What To Look For
When Choosing Your Disc Jockey
TIPS AND COMMON SENSE ADVICE ON RESERVING A DISC JOCKEY
"One final suggestion is for you to carefully listen to not only what a DJ says when you ask a question, but how they say it.
Do they speak with knowledge, passion and a desire to really help you create successful event? If so, you may have a keeper!"
After all the hours of planning, and all the expense of your event, success will come right down to how well your entertainer does his or her job. An Experienced Entertainer will make all the difference in the world towards the final out come of your event.
If a company DOES NOT OFFER references, it would make me wonder, WHY NOT? If they, and the people that work for them are qualified to do the job, they should offer them to everyone who calls - every time.
3) BACKUP EQUIPMENT:
Carrying Back-up equipment will insure that THE SHOW WILL GO ON. Lack of a spare Amp, Mixer,
Computer, CD Player, etc. ON SITE could mean THE END of entertainment at your event or function.
4) MUSIC RESOURCES:
A Professional Mobile DJ company will always carry a wide variety of music covering all styles of danceable music, from the Big Band Swing Era, right up thru the latest dance hits of today. This enables them to cover almost any request they receive from you and your guests.
5) PROFESSIONALISM - CO-OPERATION:
These are all qualities to look for when choosing your Entertainer.
A successful Party is the result of many things coming together, in the right way and, at the right time. CHOOSE CAREFULLY AND WISELY.
