BOOK YOUR WEDDING
by BK the DJ
I'm sure most people have heard that a good or bad DJ can make
or break just about any event. So it really pays to do your
homework and know what to look for when you go shopping around
for a DJ for your special event.
It never ceases to
amaze me that most a people will pay more attention to, and be
willing to spend more money on, other aspects of a typical
event; such as catering, photographers, venues...etc. But when
it comes to the DJ; the source of entertainment; the person
that is going to be responsible for all the announcements,
introductions, and overall tempo of the event; it becomes
almost an afterthought.
After all when it's all said
and done just what do you think people are going to remember
the most about the wedding, anniversary, birthday or whatever
event it was that they attended? Sure they'll remember how
beautiful the bride looked and how nice the ceremony was. But
will they really remember and think fondly about the food that
was served....well maybe, if it's that good or the
photographer that was taking pictures? I don't think so. But
what they will remember, is the good time they had dancing to
all their favourite tunes.
They will remember that the
DJ created a fun, festive atmosphere; that they were compelled
to dance to the great music that he or she played. They'll
remember that this DJ welcomed and actually played their
request. That he/she was all over the place interacting with
the guest; making them feel important by including them in the
festivities, and making him or herself accessible to them.
That is, if you hired a true professional DJ; that knows how
to organize and run a party.
These attributes (and
more) are all important aspects of being a good DJ and
entertainer. So what does it take to find the right DJ for
your important event? It takes knowledge and understanding of
just what a DJ does, or better yet; should do in order to make
any event a fun & memorable experience for all those in
attendance. You should always ask for, and check references
(word of mouth is also good).
Equally important, is to
personally interview and get a feel for the person that is
going to DJ for your event. Do not shop or hire a DJ solely on
the basis of price. I know it's so cliche` to say this, but in
this business, as is true for most products & services.....you
get what you pay for.
Another important thing that a
good DJ should do for you, is help you plan and organize your
event. For example, the planning for any announcements,
introductions, and most importantly the timing of all the
above. The DJ should provide you with either paperwork or
online tools for making a outline of the chain of events that
happens at most functions. Sort of a guideline for the DJ to
follow; as well as to communicate any needed info to the other
vendors such as the caterers, photographers, and staff at the
venue. He should also be able to share any unique knowledge
and creative ideas he has with you based on his years of
experience. If he's been in this business for a while, and
done many different types of events, then he should have all
kinds of thoughts on this matter; and be willing to share them
with you. Speaking of paperwork; make sure you get everything
in writing. Any true professional DJ will provide you with a
contract. Spelling out the date, time, price and other agreed
upon specifics of the event.
An event such as wedding
is just too important to cut corners when it comes to an area
where most of the focus (aside from the Bride & Groom) is
going to be directed to. On that same note, a good wedding DJ
should control & direct most of that focus not at himself,but
towards the Bride & Groom. After all, it is their day and the
very reason why everyone is there to begin with; therefore
they should be the focus of all the attention.
