Fun High School Dances– Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any questions not answered below, please feel free to call us for prompt service!
How does Spectrum Sound DJs compare to other local companies?
Most every local company performs school events almost as an afterthought to their main business which is typically weddings and corporate events. School activities are considered “easy” and often are assigned to less experienced DJ’s who tend to mess them up.
While we do perform at weddings and other events, we have a dedicated team of school DJs who work almost exclusively at school and teen events. Our school DJs are better trained, better equipped and more experienced than other local DJs. School dances are easy to do badly and hard to do well.
We commit to our school clients some of our best performers, and as a result, most of our school clients have used Spectrum Sound exclusively for years and in some cases decades.
I read that your DJ’s only use “clean” music. What exactly does that mean?
“Clean” music refers to songs which have been edited, sometimes heavily, from their original versions to make a new version which is suitable for radio airplay. These edited versions come to us directly from the record labels themselves, so the edits are of the highest possible quality.
Sometimes these edits involve just removing offensive words but leaving the beat while other times, the record companies will make the artist record an album version and a radio version each with different lyrics.
In either case, Spectrum Sound DJs only plays songs which are compliant with FCC daytime radio broadcast standards. To that end, we cannot accept or play CD’s or connect playback devices from students at events unless we have explicit approval from the school administration or client to play it.
If a song is “clean,” does that mean that it is then appropriate for all ages?
Unfortunately not. The clean edits of songs take out most all profanity and other content that is deemed explicit. However, the thematic content of the song remains virtually unchanged, and innuendo is left unaltered.
This is where having an experienced and well trained DJ becomes critical!
Our performers play a vastly different selection of music for elementary schools than they would for a high school or even a middle school. Even different counties have different standards as to what can be played and what cannot.
When you book with Spectrum Sound DJs, you are not just booking “a DJ.” You are booking a company with nearly four decades of experience working with local school systems to make sure that school dances stay fun for everyone.
We are planning a large school event, and we are expecting over 1000 students. Can you handle a crowd of that size?
Absolutely! We have invested heavily in our large scale sound systems which can easily accommodate up to 1500 guests outdoors and much more at indoor events. If you are planning an event bigger than that, you will likely need to contact a sound reinforcement company as you will probably need to bring in a generator and other large equipment. Other than that, the only limiting factor in how many guests we can play for is how much power is available. If you are planning on staging a large-scale event, please contact our office so we can discuss the details.
I have heard of schools having problems with inappropriate dancing. How do your DJ’s help to control this?
Numerous schools and even entire school districts have made new policies to try to control the suggestive form of dancing known as “freak dancing” which has gotten a fair amount of media attention in the last year.
Let’s face it; dances are supposed to be fun gatherings of friends who have come to dance and socialize which is made much more challenging with flood lights being turned on and administrators having to police the crowd to enforce the policies. In such a situation, no one has as much fun as they could because for as much as the students don’t like having their dancing scrutinized, the administrators and teachers charged with enforcing the dancing rules probably aren’t having much fun either. There is a better way.
While there is virtually nothing that any DJ could do to stop inappropriate dancing entirely, this situation is again where our experience goes a long way. Our performers play so much more than just a never-ending string of hip-hop tracks. We do our part to help diminish the occurrence of freak dancing by weaving together all of the top songs of the moment with party favorites from the past. To this, we add group dances like the Cha Cha Slide and slow songs to change the tempo even further while maintaining a great party atmosphere.
The specific techniques which allow us to accomplish this were developed over many years and are now taught exclusively by our staff. Our willingness to work with both students and administrators as well as our proactive approach to this issue is largely what has made Spectrum Sound DJs the number one most requested school disc jockey company in Indiana and Kentucky.
I am a student, and I would like to book Spectrum Sound DJs for a dance at my school. What do I need to do?
Well, you can start by just giving us a call! We are glad to speak with you about the details for your upcoming dance including what kind of packages you may be interested in, costs, and options. After that conversation, we will have to complete the booking arrangements with someone employed by the school (usually a class sponsor or administrator) to make sure that all of the provisions are acceptable to the administration and to get some information that students usually do not have. But give us a call to get started so we can put together an excellent package for your next event.
How far in advance do we need to book to make sure that we can get a DJ?
The short answer is as soon as you know the date, the times of the dance, and where it will be held. Particularly for events in the months of May, June, September, October, and December reservations need to be made very quickly as we usually start booking events on these dates a year before. This is especially true if you would like to request a particular performer, limited availability packages such as our Music Video Dance and Black Light Dance Party packages, or if your event requires extensive planning assistance. You can always check our availability instantly online by clicking HERE or by calling our office.
We have a very diverse student body. What kinds of music do you play for groups like that?
Today’s school systems are growing increasingly diverse regarding both culture and musical tastes. We have, and play, music from a broad variety of genres including Top 40, pop, hip-hop, country, reggae, rock, reggaeton, salsa, merengue, house/techno, and more. Every month we continually update our music collections with hits from all of these genres so no matter what your crowd, we can rock your next party
Dedicated to Your Incredible Prom!
