    Two Common Mistakes When Working With Your D.J. Entertainer

    COMMON MISTAKE #1: Hiring A DJ “By The Hour.”hiring a dj

    Your D.J. Entertainer’s job is to keep the evening’s entertainment flowing smoothly. Don’t mistake hiring a D.J. who does not spend much time organizing the evening’s timeline IN ADVANCE.

    Many D.J.s, unfortunately, give little attention to the ‘little details that are in planning a great reception. This lack of planning leads to poor energy, slow time, and confusion at wedding receptions (maybe you have attended some of these receptions).

    The only way a D.J. learns to avoid these amateur mistakes is through personal experience and after learning the ‘hard way’ at people’s receptions. So don’t let this be YOUR reception!

    You are hiring a DJ for Your Wedding. Will not charge ‘by the hour’ because he is not considering the ‘preparation’ time in his fee.
    Is it that he is telling you he doesn’t prepare

    at all?

    Will he get the names right? Will he know what songs you don’t want to play and the songs you D.O. like? The bottom line is to find out what this D.J. does to prepare for your reception.

    COMMON MISTAKE #2: On Making Your Request List

    When making your music requests, keep your list manageable. It is realistic to play 12-15 songs TOTAL per hour. Out of those songs, you should ask about a third or 5 or 6 pieces per hour (keeping the types of songs in mind, i.e., cocktail, dinner, dancing, etc.)

    This will allow your D.J. room to take requests from your guests (if you wish) and play the essential songs for your formalities. It also gives your D.J. room to program the music correctly

    in ‘sets’ for the smoothest dance floor transitions.

    A big amateur mistake is for the D.J. to play your music list ‘verbatim’ only to appease you. This screams ‘amateur’ and that the D.J. doesn’t have proper music programming skills.

    If they do this, you will have a choppy dance floor with no energy, flow, or momentum, with people coming and going with each song. But unfortunately, it also results in empty dance floors.

    Anyone can buy equipment and music and call themselves a D.J., but don’t assume they can make people dance and have a great time.

    Only an expert music programmer has the skills and the talent. I encourage you to consider your D.J. entertainment as the higher priority, as it is the factor that determines over 80% of the success of your wedding reception.

    Beware of ‘suspiciously cheap’ D.J.s, as they wouldn’t be so cheap if they took pride in their work. Instead, put in the many hours of planning and detail work involved in proper reception planning.

    The entertainment choices you make for your event can ensure its success or make it fizzle. That is why it’s a good idea to take the time you need to make the right entertainment choice, One that suits your guests’ needs and needs.
