The DJ - Get Up and Dance
Music is one of the most important elements of your successful event. It helps create a festive and enjoyable atmosphere for you and your guests. The right music touches you and makes your spirit soar in celebration.
I recommend playing mostly instrumental music during cocktails and dining. This allows all in attendance to easily socialize. Vocal music competes with conversations and is lost in the noise.
Dancing is the fun part. I bring over 15,000 selections with me to each event. I'm able to accommodate all musical tastes. It's critical that all of your guests feel they are a part of your event. I make sure to play music for each generation. Your guests will be happier, will dance more, will stay longer, and will make your celebration truly one to remember.
Your input is desired. You get to specify the styles of instrumental music you want for cocktails and dining. You select the songs for your first dance and other specialty dances. You provide guidelines for the types of music and artists to be played throughout the dance. I will play requests that meet your guidelines. Relax and enjoy yourself. The rest is up to me.
As your invited guest I have the great pleasure of entertaining you with really good music. An added benefit is that I get to listen to it, too. These are two main reasons why I invest so heavily in top-of-the-line audio equipment. Other disc jockeys spend tons on expensive magazine and phonebook advertising. My business is based entirely on referrals. I choose to put my money into equipment that makes our mutual experience more enjoyable.
There is more to great gear than name brands and earsplitting power. I choose equipment that is optimally suited to your event. I have different combinations of speakers and amplifiers that I customize to your needs. Most disc jockeys bring the same equipment to every function. It's too loud for small parties and too weak for larger groups. Multi-unit disc jockey companies find it too expensive to provide all of their employees with expensive cordless microphones and customized equipment for each event. I bring the best with me each time. The price remains the same. Your function is my most important event of the day.
“How powerful is your amplifier? ” This is an example of where “bigger” isn’t necessarily “better.” Overwhelming power is hard to control. One of the biggest complaints about disc jockeys is: “The music was too loud!” There is a really big difference between amplifiers. Some are built for raw power (think Bronco game) and some are built for quality sound (think living room). The true test of an amplifier is how well it produces good clean sound at all volume levels. Too much power (think 1000 watts per channel) creates a lot of background noise (hissssss), particularly at low volume, and overpowering sound. Either way you’ll have many very unhappy guests. Too little power (think 100 watts per channel) makes for a wimpy party. Again, I bring the size that best suits your event. I care what it sounds like for everyone.
“How many speakers do you bring?” It depends on the number of guests and the size of the room. Most disc jockey companies bring only two mid-sized cabinets to every event. I select the size and number to suit your occasion. Smaller groups only need two full-range, 15” cabinets. More people and bigger spaces need additional sound support. I recommend using four speakers. This allows me to cover a wider area at lower volume for cocktails and dinner. I can then later focus all four on the dance floor for a true “club effect.” In both cases your guests will be able to talk at their tables and have an enjoyable time.
“How many CD players do you use?” I hear horror stories of disc jockeys only bringing one CD player with them to an event. Sometimes they may bring two. This leaves a lot of dead space between songs and cripples your party. It’s important to keep things flowing during the dance. Stopping to load a new song breaks the flow and loses the mood. I include five different players in my main system to handle all circumstances. CD, DVD, Video CD, MP3, and karaoke equipment allow me the flexibility to instantly respond to requests and keep the party hopping without interruption. This is the professional way of doing things.
“Do you bring a backup set of equipment with you?” Having a complete extra set of equipment on-site is the only true way of being prepared for equipment emergencies. I use only high-quality, professional equipment that is very reliable. But lightening happens. Most disc jockey companies find it too expensive to provide each of their many employees with backup equipment. They offer a “backup plan” or a “thirty-minute delivery.” They’re gambling with you’re money and happiness. That’s much too long to be without music. I bring my backup equipment to your location. It’s instantly available. Three of my very happy brides will attest to how important this is.
“Do you bring a separate set of equipment for the ceremony?” I set up all the equipment necessary in each location. This allows you to have uninterrupted music for the ceremony, cocktails, dining, and reception. Most other disc jockey companies only bring one set of equipment. This leaves you without music for long periods while they’re tearing down and setting up equipment between locations. Totally unacceptable.
“Do you offer a light package?” Basic accent lighting, upon request, is included in my price. For most weddings I actually recommend using only minimal, if any, lighting effects. Larger effects, music videos, fog, and bubbles are available for other events.
“Do you do karaoke?” The good news is that I don’t sing! I am, however, fully equipped to provide a complete karaoke experience. Cordless microphones, song lists, request forms, props, and monitors are all available. You do the singing.
“Do you have other Audio/Visual equipment?” I am able to provide you with a full range of audio/visual support. Basic sound systems for meetings to a LCD projector with 7’ screen for larger presentations. Each is tailored and priced to your individual needs.
Experience counts. It inspires confidence. It assures success. I have personally provided the musical entertainment and served as master of ceremonies for over two thousand events. I've seen it all. I'm able to respond to every situation in a timely, confident, and dignified manner. I bring an extensive music library and personal knowledge of what makes a party work. Your very special day deserves a very special disc jockey.
Your "Great Time" fully depends on you hiring the best person for the job. Please consider me for your next special occasion. I guarantee you'll have a really great time.
