Your special occasion is an event that will remain in your hearts and thoughts for years to come. The most memorable part of the occasion is usually the reception or after ceremony party. The key to having a truly amazing and unforgettable reception is choosing the right entertainment. There are a few different things to consider when choosing your DJ, and certain things you’re going to want to know before choosing the entertainment company that will be responsible for your special day.

Music that your guests will nonstop dance to and enjoy is a crucial element for any party to be successful. A good disc jockey should have and play a vast range of musical genres that please both young and old alike. Make sure your DJ has a wide range of musical genres, from pop to 50’s doo wop, to disco and 80’s rock. Make sure your DJ has a digital storage facility and digital software to play digital music files that won’t skip or crackle in the middle of a dance set.
In order to ensure that your DJ can deliver the best on your special day they should have adequate experience in the entertainment industry. The more experience they have, the more they will know how the whole event should flow, and what works for what crowd. They will know when to make certain announcements and when and how to get your guests up to dance. They will probably have a few good jokes and tricks up their sleeve as well. Don’t let the age of your DJ fool you. Experience comes with the amount of parties a DJ does in a year. Some DJ’s have been DJing 15 years and only do 2 weddings a month. Some DJ’s have been DJing 5 years and DJ 8 weddings in a month. It’s good to ask a DJ how many weddings they do in a year. If they’ve ever had any residencies at catering halls? How many years they’ve been in the industry?
Good equipment in sound and lighting will make or break a party atmosphere. You should ask a DJ to show you a demo of some of the parties they’ve done in the past as most of them are videotaped by a professional videographer. Pay close attention to the quality of the sound and the lighting because that’s probably what you’ll be getting. If your DJ has LED lights you can be assured that they are expensive but very reliable. They do not generate heat and never burn out.
The most important aspect of a good DJ company is that your wedding DJ is reliable. You should ask if they have a back up DJ in case of illness or accident, and a backup system in case a speaker blows or is damaged during transportation. A little preparation can help ensure you have a wedding that is perfect in every possible way. Make sure to ask the DJ if they have testimonials from previous clients to ensure that they were happy with the DJs services. Ask if the DJ offers a money back guarantee on their performance and make sure that you have a written and signed contract with the DJ company.
Lastly, stay away from part time DJs who advertise mostly for free on internet sites like craigslist, or in pennysaver magazines, and are ready to work on a low budget. These types of DJs have very poor equipment, no experience, and are unreliable. Its not worth saving $500.00 to risk ruining your one special day. So be cautious and take time to find out that the DJ you are hiring is experienced talented and dedicated to his craft.
