Posted by Daryl Thomas on December 7th, 2011
Whether you’re coordinating a wedding, hosting a holiday party, or organizing a corporate event, getting a Disc Jockey will probably be among the best decisions you make in ensuring the success of your event. Here are just a few of the many reasons why:
- They will come prepared with an extensive music collection, a strong knowledge of the songs that should appeal most to your guests and the skill necessary to smoothly transition from one song to the next to help keep your guests out on the dance floor.
- You will never have to worry about consistent, high-quality sound. Your disc jockey will know and use all of the best brands of Pro Audio equipment available to provide the clearest, most crisp sound. They will bring all of their own equipment, set it up in the safest, most efficient manner and be prepared with a fully assembled backup system in case of any unexpected equipment failures.
- They can provide great visual entertainment with the use of colorful LED lights and fog machines, to further encourage guests to remain on the dance floor. In some instances, they even can provide video equipment to screen presentations or photomontages.
- A D.J. can do a lot more than play music. They can introduce your guests, narrate video presentations, provide toasts, introduce contests, encourage guests to dance, mingle or just have fun. They are great public speakers that know how to engage any crowd in their first language and put them at ease so they can focus on enjoying themselves.
- You can easily find one who will fit your budget. The truth is, there are online agencies that allow you to search for a disc jockey according to whatever you can afford, and you can bet, they’ll be much less expensive than hiring a full band.
While all of these are great reasons, perhaps the best reason to hire a D.J. is that they will take the pressure off of you so you can concentrate on your guests. Between spinning tunes, emceeing activities and putting on a great light show, your disc jockey will bear the majority of the responsibility of entertaining your guests, allowing you free to enjoy yourself and make lasting memories.
