Whichever DJ company you decide to hire make sure that you can rely on it. Music can either make or break your event. These are just a few questions you should ask your prospective DJ:
● When does the DJ arrive to set-up?
● Does the DJ have backup equipment?
● What is the song repertoire like (oldies, top 40, polkas, waltzes, ballroom, country)?
● Can the DJ play music to suit the wide range of ages at your event?
● Does the DJ offer lighting? If so is this included in the price?
● Prior to your event will the DJ help you come up with a list of songs to play or avoid?
● For a wedding reception, does the DJ make an effort to get to know the names of the parents of the bride and groom, and the people in the wedding party?
● For a wedding reception, ask how the DJ will handle the important details of the evening such as the introductions, first dance, cake cutting, garter/bouquet toss, etc.
● When pricing a DJ service, is the price too good to be true? While the price may seem good, how does it compare to the other expenses of your event? Don't forget that you do get what you pay for, and if there is one thing that your guests will remember from your event, it’s the quality of the musical entertainment.
