I have heard many stories of “iPod Dj’s” ruining a reception by playing inappropriate music. It takes experience and an unselfish DJ to play songs that a crowd wants to hear and dance to.

It is nearly impossible to plan a good wedding dance ahead of time, especially without a lot of experience performing for an audience.

Also, in most situations, it is not easy to set up and run high-level audio equipment correctly, and If they are not using professional-grade equipment, there is a good chance it will over-heat or malfunction at a high level of output. An iPod is not a DJ. It is a music player that has no clue who the guests are and the type of music they want to dance to.

Choosing The Right DJ

First of all, a wedding is a costly event by itself, so hiring a DJ that can play the appropriate music for your event is undoubtedly one of the essential parts of planning any event. It’s important to select the right DJ as the feedback from an invitee well-versed in party music can quickly bring on that dreaded sensation known as awkwardness.
Therefore before you start your DJ search, never forget that:
01 The fees should not go beyond £2000 (£600 being the lower limit). For every 4 hours played, overtime should be between £100 and £150 per hour.
02 The appointed disc jockey should be fully insured with valid certification and have their own professional-grade tested equipment, ensuring everything works.
03 There are too many horror stories to count about music malfunctions that ruined an otherwise beautiful wedding ceremony or reception, which is why choosing an open-format DJ could save headaches and time wasted later on. It’s essential to be able to plan your wedding or other large social events with as little stress as possible.
04 One way to minimize the worry and fuss over a seamless day is to find a flexible DJ that perfectly fits your budget and style. An ideal wedding DJ would guide you through the process, listen to your likes and dislikes, and create an event to remember without any worry on your part.
05 The appointed disc jockey chosen can make or break the entire event in terms of bringing great mood, which will result in great photos, so it’s important to select an experienced and talented professional for such a job.
06 It’s very important for you to pick a professional that you can trust to have your best interest at heart and to give you the memorable moment of your life. They must be willing to take the extra steps to help you get the most talked-about wedding in town and meet your needs in any way they can.
07 The appointed DJ should be open to requests and flexible in playing appropriate music for the event.
08 Are they experienced in playing at events similar to yours? and able to provide demo samples of their music mixing and blending skills, “ No DJ’s are the same in pretty much anyway.”
09 Find out what the plan is for failed equipment. If this is not covered, you may want to consider finding another DJ.
10 DO NOT hire a DJ without an agreement! I have had several couples call me last minute saying that their entertainment has backed out on them!!! Oh man, can you imagine? Don’t let that happen to you.
11 DO ask who your DJ will be. Large companies have several DJ’s on their payroll. You don’t want to be stuck with an inexperienced DJ or someone who doesn’t know how to play different music styles for a mixed-demographic, multicultural crowd.
