If you’re planning a party—-school dance, wedding, prom, birthday party, company party—whatever kind of party, you’ve undoubtedly thought of using a deejay for your party entertainment. Before you dismiss the idea based on stories you’ve heard, let us debunk some of the major DJ myths:
- DJ’s only BLAST music. One huge benefit of having a DJ for entertainment at your party is volume control. Having soft background music when you need it (and loud dance music when needed) is invaluable for providing a fun event where everyone can mingle.
- DJ’s don’t take requests. A good DJ allows takes requests at your party, and even in advance by asking guests on the invitation if there is a song they would like to hear.
- DJ’s only play dance music. Musical chairs? Freeze games? Laser light show? Group video games? A good DJ is versatile, and can keep your guests moving with music and games at any party—birthday parties, weddings, holiday company parties, school dances, proms and post prom parties.
- DJ’s only provide music. Do you need someone to give instructions for seating guests? Or call out the winner of contests and raffles? Ask your DJ. The DJ can make announcements, direct guests’ attentions to a certain area or assist with event directions.
- DJ’s take up a huge amount of space in your venue because of all their equipment. When you’ve got a big crowd and you’re tight on space, a DJ takes up less floor space than a band.
When you do choose a DJ for your party, don’t just choose any DJ. There is a reason that DJ myths are out there. Once you’ve selected the right DJ for your party, book early. Don’t wait to get on the calendar of a good, experienced DJ. Contact a good DJ ASAP. The best DJ’s calendars fill up quickly, and you don’t want to be stuck with a DJ that fits one of these myths.
