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
The Best or
or who say they are
there is no such voting, or any offical awards given out, they
are misrepresenting themselves to you.
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
also no guarantee that the dog comes without flaws.
The best thing anyone can do who is looking to
DJ / KJ is to check those current
and use their gut instincts.
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.
you only need
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
minimal experience. The only reason for a second
, 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 .
Every Disc Jockey should carry liability insurance.
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
Sandy & Doug/Wedding Reception
"We all had such a great time
dancing to the music you played. Everyone is raving! Thanks again for
Tami & Shawn/Wedding Reception
"We would recommend you much better
than other DJs we've seen at other weddings we been to. Thanks!"
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
them selves sound like a million bucks, just like I did here.

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.
Since music is one of the most important parts
of your wedding reception, an experienced entertainer can make it
a truly memorable occasion.
Current references: always offer current & old references without being asked.
This way, you can speak with clients who have recently hired my

should a problem occur. Lack of a spare amp, mixer, CD player, etc. could mean the end of
your special occasion.
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.
