Are you looking to plan an event? It doesn’t matter if you’re planning a wedding, business function or a fundraiser, the most important part of making your event a success is having quality entertainment. But, why should you consider hiring a professional DJ service? Well, DJs are the go to entertainers for social events, for starters. After all, entertainment is their business! However, not all DJs are created equal, and there are some important questions you need to ask when hiring a DJ for your next event.
Is He/She a Professional?
Hiring a professional DJ is super important. There are so many people out there that have an iPod and automatically consider themselves a DJ. Keep in mind that a DJ does not just play music, they help keep the flow of an event and also, more times than not, act as an Emcee. You need to hire someone who can keep the event on track and constantly entertain.
Does The DJ Match My Event Type?
Some DJs specialize in specific types of events. When researching DJs, let them know the type of event that you are looking to host so that you can determine if they are the right fit. Each event type requires a different type of skill and you want to make sure whoever you hire is a master in that desired skill.
What Does Their Website Like?
A DJs website can tell a lot about them because how many DJs do you know that have a storefront or an office of any kind? Their website is traditionally the main way they attract clients (outside of referrals). Having a poorly designed website, offering very little information, can be an indication that they are not up for the job. Let the style and content of their website be your guide and use that to narrow down the list of prospective entertainers.
Do They Have Good Reviews?
Check out review sites like Yelp to get a better feel for customers past experiences with the DJ. People tend to be very honest when reviewing their services so you should be able to get a very good feel for the type of work they do. Of course though, do not let a few bad reviews deter you from using a specific DJ. Remember that they can’t always make everyone happy. Keep your eye out for reviews that relate to their etiquette, communication, etc. – things that should be important to you when hiring them.
Can I Access Their Playlists?
A good DJ has access to a large library of music selections. Of course they cannot always give you access to this upfront, but you should at least know in advance if such list exists. Also, search YouTube and other video content sites for slips from past events that they have worked.
How Much Do They Cost?
DJs are not cheap – not the good ones at least. But don’t forget that you get what you pay for. The cost of hiring a DJ goes into the quality of their equipment and of their performance.
