HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT ENTERTAINER

Through the years I have talked with many people that have had, or have seen a party ruined by an inexperienced / unprofessional Disc Jockey. Remember, the music will be one of the most important parts of your party. If the DJ / KJ  you hire doesn't have much experience, or you are getting a price too good to be true, he probably has just enough experience to ruin your party. I hate to say this but, this is one of those times that you will get what you pay for. I know it can be a challenging task finding the right company for your event, especially if you have never done it before. Below you will find an outline that will give you the knowledge you need in choosing the right entertainer for your party. Remember, you can't redo that special day. So please take your time and really check out who you are considering of hiring. Thanks.

Be careful of disc jockey companies that claim to be The Best or Voted No.1, or who say they are Award Winning , there is no such voting, or any offical awards given out, they are misrepresenting themselves to you.

Disc Jockey Associations:  Just because a Mobile Disc Jockey is a member of one of the many Dj associations throughout the country, there is no guarantee that they are of Professional Quality.  Just like a pure breed dog with AKC papers is also no guarantee that the dog comes without flaws. The best thing anyone can do who is looking to hire a  DJ / KJ is to check those current and old references and use their gut instincts. 

Two Disc Jockeys For The Price Of One:  What a deal!!, or is it??? Some companies will tell you that they send out two disc jockeys to your event because you get a better performance that way. NOT TRUE, you only need one experienced DJ / KJ at your event. The reason they send out two disc jockeys is because one does not have enough experience to handle your event, and what you will actually end up getting is two disc jockeys with minimal experience. The only reason  for a second DJ/ KJ , is for set-up needs, more than one set-up, or when there are steps to carry  your heavy equipment up.

Licensing and Bonding   There is no actual licensing or bonding for disc jockeys, except for local city or county business licenses, if required by them at all .

Insurance:   Every Disc Jockey should carry liability insurance. 

Beware of On Line References: they are generally set up as a letter from a supposedly past client and will usually say something like this:

"Really helped to make our wedding reception a special day and met our every expectation and more. Thank you!"
Sandy & Doug/Wedding Reception

"We all had such a great time dancing to the music you played. Everyone is raving! Thanks again for everything!"
Tami & Shawn/Wedding Reception

"We would recommend you much better than other DJs we've seen at other weddings we been to. Thanks!"
Jason/Wedding Reception

Who are these people? Do they really exist? Why do they not allow you to talk with them? Do not go with those. Anybody can type up some letters and make them selves sound like a million bucks, just like I did here. You want to actually talk with recent & past clients. Remember, after all the hours of planning, and all the expense of your event, success will come right down to how well your entertainer does his or her job. An Experienced Entertainer will make all the difference in the world towards the final out come of your event. 

 

1.  Experience:  Since music is one of the most important parts of your wedding reception, an       experienced entertainer can make it a truly memorable occasion.

2. Current references: always offer current & old references without being asked.  This way, you can speak with clients who have recently hired my services and get their unbiased opinion on my performance.  If a company does not offer  references, Be cautious of their professionalism.

3.  Backup equipment:Carrying back-up equipment will insure that The Show Will Go On should a problem occur. Lack of a spare amp, mixer, CD player, etc. could mean the end of your special occasion.

4. Beware of middlemen:Talent or booking agencies often use less experienced (cheaper) talent to maximize their profits. By dealing directly with a professional mobile disc jockey service, you know who you are booking and what to expect.

5.  Music resources: A professional mobile DJ & KJ company will always carry a wide variety of music covering all styles of danceable music, from the Big Band Swing Era through the latest dance hits of today.  This enables them to cover almost any request they receive from you and your guests.

Professionalism, experience, and cooperation are all qualities to look for when choosing your entertainer. Your special event is successful as the result of many things coming together in the right way at the right time. As the owner of SIR DANCEALOT PRODUCTIONS, I realize that many of you are doing this for the first time. I hope this outline will help you select the best possible entertainer. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time. Thank you.

Sincerely,

John S. Gomez
