It is true that a wedding DJ can make or break a perfect wedding reception. This is the part where you carefully need to select someone who will turn your wedding day into a real party. There are certain qualities that will indicate that you have the right person to fit this critical position. At Drama Sounds we strive to give our clients real entertainment when it comes to executing their wedding reception. Let us look at some of the pointers that will let you know that you just landed the right DJ for your wedding.
A Great DJ listens
A DJ who listens to your instructions and works around your requests makes the right person to handle your wedding reception in a way that pleases you and your guests. Settling with a DJ who comes out as ‘Mr Know-it-all’ is not such a good idea because they might disappoint you a great deal.
A Great DJ pronounce the names right
Professional DJs and Master of Ceremonies take formal announcements very seriously and ensure every name is pronounced correctly. They practice this over and over days before the wedding day to ensure they get it right.
Great DJs read the crowd and play requested music
A top notch DJ always has the couple’s favorite songs in their playlist. On top of that, a good DJ should be able to read the crowd and adjust the music based on the reception of the crowd to the music. Early preparation is paramount in order to conduct a successful wedding reception.
Good DJs don’t assume
A professional DJ should be aware of the wedding reception venue ahead of time and get there on time in order to set up equipment and get ready for the occasion.
Great DJs are Poised and presentable Professionals
Appearance is very important for a professional DJ. At Drama Sounds, our DJs are well groomed, well rested and in control of the wedding reception.
Testing everything ahead of time constitutes a prepared DJ
Testing of sound equipment, checking microphones and positioning speakers before the event starts is key to the success of the event. Before the event starts, a DJ has to be prepared with everything that is needed to avoid hitches. A DJ that gets to the venue late is an unprepared DJ and shows just how unprofessional he or she is. That said, picking the right DJ for your wedding reception shouldn’t be a huge task after going through the important qualities that constitute a professional DJ.
