When should you Hire a DJ?

Everyone needs a DJ for a Party, or even more so for a Wedding.


With today's economy, many people are hoping to save a few extra dollars by looking for the least expensive DJ service for their money.


What are the results?

Is it worth the savings?


See my posted article, "The Cost of Hiring a DJ".

Choosing The Right Equipment

I offer my customers the best sound I can produce for them at their event.

Loud is not quality. There are many fundamentals in producing a quality sound such as sound clarity and using equipment designed for live production. These are somethings you should know before you hire a DJ?


I have been asked many times about my equipment such as the brand of speaker, mixer and lighting I use. I use industry standard equipment, for example, EV Speakers, Pioneer mixer and so on.  I select equipment for the size of the room and the type of event.


You can always check online to find out about reviews of the speakers or mixers. Also, read any reviews that a DJ may have posted for you to check out. Hearing what their customers say is something that can bring assurance when making a decision to hire a DJ.


Basic home stereos or other home equipment should not be used. These systems are not properly designed to fill the room with the best quality and depth of sound needed.

What is Important?

The important thing is to determine the expectations of my customers. Providing equipment that produces good sound quality, a good volume level, clarity or maybe added bass for a club type sound.


Is quality sound important to you and your guests when hiring a DJ?

A Professional DJ can produce quality sound for indoors and outdoors. 


They are prepared to address situations such as venues in remote locations without access to power. 


Microphones may have many sound issues and a skilled DJ has the knowledge of how and what microphones to use for an event. I have heard horror stories from someone's wedding with the microphone making terrible feedback during the speeches. There are some really good DJ's out there that have been around for years; however, some DJ's do not always have the necessary knowledge or problem solving skills for various setups. 


It is my wish to educate the public and help them see the value when hiring a professional Disc Jockey for their event.


I  hope you will return to my Blog page as I will continue to share some of my thoughts, experiences, and tips from my 20 plus years in my career as a Disc Jockey.
