When you plan a party of any sort, your objective is to ensure that your guests have a good time. Your choice of entertainment, particularly if you are considering a DJ, is crucial. Who you choose to provide entertainment at your wedding reception or special event will have a greater degree of effect than any other factor. This includes such things as food, location, photographer, etc. After all, the entertainment portion of your event is considered to be responsible for 80% (or more) of the events success. Think about it. When was the last time you left an event saying “That party was wonderful! The entertainment was terrible, but the prime rib was terrific!” You see, the DJ you choose is critical and is a direct reflection on you.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN HIRING A DJ…
Prompt return of your phone calls or emails.
You should expect to get a call back or an email back within 24 hours. Many DJs are out working and may not be able to return your call within an hour or two.
Is the DJ willing to meet with you and present their services even BEFORE their services have been secured or are they just trying to book the date sight unseen?
Is the DJ licensed and insured?
Is their material neat and professional looking, and is their presentation organized and informative?
At Joe Metzgar Mobile DJ Service, we are proud to offer free consultations!
Is the person knowledgeable about your type of event?
There are all kinds of DJs. Club DJs, Rave DJs, Wedding DJs…the list is endless!! Can the DJ you interview handle your type of event? Ask the DJ how many events of your type have they done.
