Questions to Ask a DJ

DJs, with their music selection and announcements, truly set the tone at your reception, so make sure you set aside time to interview your prospective DJs (in person when possible). Go with your gut. It’s better to do lots of interviews and find someone who you know will represent you well than to hire someone who you’re not completely comfortable with. Believe me, your guests won’t remember everything from your wedding, but they’ll remember the music (especially if it’s bad!). Here are 20 important questions to ask a prospective DJ:

  1. Why did you become a DJ?
  2. How long have you been a DJ?
  3. How many weddings do you do each year?
  4. Will you have any assistance at the wedding?
  5. May I see photos of your setup?
  6. What is your equipment malfunction backup plan?
  7. Are you insured?
  8. Can you walk me through your service contract?
  9. How will you handle guest song requests?
  10. How would you define your “style” when making announcements?
  11. What do you do to motivate the crowd if nobody is dancing?
  12. What’s your song selection process?
  13. Can we submit a “Do Not Play” list?
  14. What makes you different from your competitors?
  15. Have you played at our reception site before?
  16. What if something happens to you and you can’t make it to the wedding?
  17. May we speak to your references?
  18. How much of a deposit is required to secure our date?
  19. What is included in the cost of my event?
  20. How much would you charge for overtime?
