DJs are essential to get maximum enjoyment from your event. No matter their music style, or whether it is a small or large event. A DJ is there to liven up a party and bring out the best in your guests.Did you know that already? OK, that was an easy one.
But maybe choosing the right DJ for your party is a bit trickier than that.
How to choose the perfect DJ for your party
Don’t worry, Wavezoo has some tips to help you choose the perfect DJ.
Do you know what you like?
The first tip is probably common sense, but sometimes not being clear about what you want leads to poor results.
Not everyone who hires a DJ is clued up about music and some can’t communicate the styles or genres of music they like.
- Bossa nova
- Chill out
- Deep House
- Drum and bass
- Electro Pop
- Electro house
- Tech house
- And more…
If you’re not sure, you can start by thinking about what you don’t like. Any songs you hate or wouldn’t dance to. This list will help your DJ keep you happy and will ultimately contribute to the party being a good experience, leaving you with the feeling that you have chosen a good DJ.
What kind of party or event are you looking for?
There is time for everything. Just like styles of music. Celebrating a wedding, a golden anniversary or a birthday is not the same as a company event, a party with friends or strangers, or a family dinner or get-together.
If you are looking to create a specific atmosphere, you should choose versatile DJs who can play anything and know how to adapt to every moment.
On the other hand, if you want a pure adrenaline session, hire a specialized DJ. For example, some DJs are experts in black metal and bachata.
Ask the DJ directly?
Don’t be afraid to talk to the DJ. Ask about anything you want, such as whether the DJ normally entertains the crowd by singing or talking to them. Ask about guest requests, or whether the DJ puts on any kind of extra show.
We’re sure our DJs will be happy to answer and that they have a few surprises up their sleeves.
Is he an artist or someone who plays music?
Finally, you should know DJs are not people who just play music. They’re artists! To enjoy a DJ you must let them flow. After sharing your expectations before the event or contract, let them do the work.
No matter if they are amateurs or professionals, they will know how to lead the party and get the guests eating out of their hands.
Although rating a DJ as good or bad may seem rather subjective, they share certain fundamental characteristics: music selection, personality, track mixing techniques and the ability to set the theme to suit the situation and the audience at any given time.
Finally, don’t just trust your own feelings. Look at your guests, as they are the real judges.
