First things first! These tips are in no particular order and they apply to just about any event that a DJ could be needed for.
If you have a bar or photo booth at the event, please put it in the main room where the DJ is. Keeping people near the dance floor will increase the chance of then dancing.
If there are older guests, try not to sit them close or right in front of the speaker(s).
Don’t micromanage the timeline. We do need the order of events but not necessarily the exact time for each. We will coordinate with the event planner if the timeline begins to stray.
For a wedding, keep in mind that your guests are going to be want to be where the couple is. If you’re on the dance floor, the guests will be too!
When picking your music, you don’t have to overdo it. Pick 20 or so songs you like and a few you don’t, and let us take it from there.
When picking your songs for your event, take into account not only your taste, but the guests’ as well. Not all songs are dancing songs.
If you have dance floor lighting, keep in mind that darker is better. Use dimmers for chandeliers, cafe lighting, etc. Ask the venue to dim the lights after dinner.
Remember! you always want to leave the guests wanting more. It’s not your responsibility to entertain guests all night.
If you have to cut corners on your budget, don’t skimp on your entertainment—it can make or break your event!
