Most people have never hired a Professional DJ prior to needing one for a private event. Knowing the right questions to ask & things to provide can be tricky, just like rocking a rhyme on time. Here’s 5 things DJs need to make your party AWESOME!!!
1 - Protection From Weather - Nothing stops a party faster than the DJ equipment or sound system getting wet. We love to party outside too! Do everyone a favor...provide a tent for your entertainment & guests.
2 - Reliable Power - A must have for any DJ is Reliable Power. Check with your venue to see if they have 220 power feeds in their Ballrooms or Event Halls. This ensures no breakers trip & the music stops momentarily. Most modern venues have proper 110 power feeds if 220 isn’t installed. Make sure your DJ is set up near working outlets.
3 - Solid Ground - Nothing the DJ brings to your party is cheap. Most of it requires solid, stable ground. Provide your DJ with a smooth wood or concrete floor so the music will sound the best, also the appearance of the area will look level & professional. Avoid surfaces like grass, dirt, gravel, mulch or sloped areas.
4 - Access To DJ Area - DJ equipment is big & heavy! The easiest way to make your DJs day is to make it convenient to move their equipment from vehicle to performance area. Ramps & elevators are our friends, stairs & hills are not.
5 - Dance Floor - If you want to dance, provide a Dance Floor in front of the DJ area. This will show people upon arrival that dancing will happen during the night & no tables/chairs will have to be moved in order to do so. Position your DJ close to the Dance Floor so your guests don’t have to go far to make their requests.
None of these items will break your budget, but they will ensure your party goes off much smoother for your guests & DJ!
