BOOKING A WEDDING OR EVENTS DJ - TIPS


LET'S FACE IT, A WEDDING ISN'T A WEDDING WITHOUT GREAT MUSIC. WHETHER YOU'RE HIRING A DJ TO PLAY ALONGSIDE A BAND, OR HIRING A DJ TO FILL THE DANCE FLOOR ALL NIGHT, IT'S ESSENTIAL THAT YOU HAVE THE HIGHEST STANDARD OF DJ FOR YOUR BIG DAY. THE PROBLEM:

NOWADAYS DJ EQUIPMENT IS VERY CHEAP AND VERY EASY TO GET YOUR HANDS ON. THIS HAS LED TO A SLEW OF SUB PAR DJs WHO HAVEN'T HONED THEIR SKILLS AND MASTERED THEIR CRAFT.

AT NEXT LEVEL MUSIC WE ONLY EMPLOY THE VERY BEST DJs, SO YOU CAN REST ASSURED THAT YOUR MUSIC IS WELL AND TRULY TAKEN CARE OF.

THINGS TO CONSIDER:

POSITION - WHEN YOU DESIGN YOUR WEDDING IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR DJ IS IN THE RIGHT SPOT. GUESTS USUALLY DANCE FACING TOWARDS THE SOURCE OF THE MUSIC, SO POSITIONING THE DJ NEXT TO THE DANCE FLOOR, UNOBSTRUCTED BY TABLES, DECORATIONS ETC IS THE BEST MOVE.

TIMINGS - IF YOU'RE BOOKING A BAND, WE RECOMMEND THAT THE DJ PLAYS AFTERWARDS. AFTER YEARS OF PERFORMING AT WEDDINGS, CORPORATE EVENTS, PARTIES ETC WE'VE SEEN THAT THIS IS THE BEST FORMULA FOR AN OUTSTANDING NIGHT.

SOMETHING ELSE TO CONSIDER IS "HOW EARLY IS TOO EARLY?" ANY KIND OF LOUD MUSIC MAY BE WASTED ON A 5PM AUDIENCE WHO HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO HIT THE BAR AND LOSE THEIR INHIBITIONS. TIMING IS EVERYTHING. IF THE DJ IS TO PLAY EARLIER, THE REPERTOIRE SHOULD REFLECT THE MOOD OF THE GUESTS AT THAT TIME - SOMETHING MORE RELAXED, UNTIL LATER WHEN THE PARTY REALLY KICKS OFF.

TO BOOTH OR NOT TO BOOTH - SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO ASK YOUR VENUE, IS THERE A DJ BOOTH AT THE VENUE? SETTING UP A DJ ON TRESTLE TABLES DOESN'T LOOK GREAT (OR FEEL GREAT FOR THE DJ, HAVING TO LEAN OVER HIS DECKS FOR SEVERAL HOURS)

IF THERE'S NO BOOTH AT THE VENUE, MAKE SURE YOU ASK YOUR DJ OR EVENTS PLANNER TO HIRE A GOOD LOOKING DJ BOOTH, GIVING YOUR RECEPTION A REALLY HIGH END FEEL.

LIGHTING - IF YOU'RE HIRING A BAND, THERE WILL PROBABLY BE LIGHTING INCLUDED. IF NOT, DOES YOUR DJ HAVE LIGHTING? IF NOT, MAKE SURE YOUR DJ OR EVENTS PLANNER HIRES IN SOME GREAT LIGHTING. SOME UPLIGHTERS, AN AUTOMATIC PAR CAN BAR OR TWO, SOME MOVING HEADS... THESE WILL MAKE YOUR NIGHT LOOK & FEEL GREAT.
