Almost any event where there will be music, whether a wedding, party or even a corporate event, needs to also have a DJ to play the music and help guide everything along. But not all such people are created equal, so you need to put certain practices into place to ensure you get the right type for your specific event. Here are some tips to make sure you do.
- Choose someone who is experienced and can also do MC duties.
- Ask if they have a CD or DVD of their work so you can get some idea of their style. You need to know if they take charge, or work on the sidelines along with you. For a wedding, it’s best if they take the latter role, since the bride and groom should be the stars, not the MC.
- Find out what they charge per hour. This is usually cheaper than a live band, so you’ll save.
- Ask if they have back-up equipment in case anything goes wrong.
