Sorting through the myriad of suppliers for a wedding can be quite daunting, including finding the right DJ. Here are some simple tips for selecting the right DJ for you, and how to avoid the pitfalls.
The Music Industry
The music industry is not one that is very well regulated. This is particularly so for Disc Jockeys, which means that anyone can buy a stack of DJ equipment and call themselves a DJ, without any real experience. So make sure your DJ has plenty of experience and especially with weddings – A great nightclub DJ may not have the right skills to DJ at a wedding.
Make sure you check out the client testimonials of any prospective DJ, or DJ company. Any reputable DJ company will have a good selection of testimonials from previous clients and should be always up to date with dates listed and over a long period of time. If this is not the case you need to ask yourself why.
It has often been said that ‘you get what you pay for’ and this certainly applies to Disk Jockeys. There are plenty of DJs that will do the job cheaply, but they may not be very good. It might seem like you are getting a bargain, but it will cost you a lot more if he lets you down on the day. Picture your wedding with NO entertainment. The bottom line is, the cheaper the company, the less the DJ is paid and the cheaper the equipment quality will be.
At Impression DJs, all of our DJ’s have at least 5 years’ experience, and some have over 15 years on the decks. We also have DJ’s that work as professional Emcee’s as well. You can view our many testimonials here on our website, or in our office in person.
