DJ´s Need Experience in More than Just Music
(Image Captured By: JF Hannigan Photography
DJ´s aren´t just button pushers selecting songs at random to make a noise at your party. They need to be experienced in system configurations, sound dynamics and volume levels, all of which are different in every room or hall. A great sound doesn´t just happen by accident. Proper amplification with hi current commercial equipment is absolutely essential. As a rule, the higher the wattage of the system, the better the sound. A powerful amp can make mid level quality speakers sound great at any volume. DJ´s have to know how to set up their array of speakers to create a great sound in any shaped hall and that´s not always easy because most brides feel that speakers are to be heard and not seen.
Many times the hall is completely decorated and configured with no thought to where the DJ table or speakers are going to be placed. We arrive and ask the question. Where do you want the DJ to be? We usually receive blank stares and an OH OH! We find this very strange because a lot of thought is normally given to the experience of the DJ when we´re being booked and then we´re forgotten about on the day of the set up. I understand that we´re usually the last supplier after the hall, the flowers, the cake and the photographer are booked but we´re certainly not unimportant. The two main things about a reception that all guests remember is the food and the music.
The other area of expertise for a DJ is in the lighting and special effects. These are extras that DJ services charge more for, but are not necessary if you´re on a tight budget because you went overboard on the cake and the flowers. They do create an ambiance and if worked properly can motivate the floor as well as the music. The music and the lights must work together with consideration given to the energy and beat of the music in order to compliment each other.
An experienced DJ can use all the tools at his/her disposal to create a vibrant mix of music and lights that will have your guests talking about the great time they had at your reception/party. Your DJ service can easily be part of your reception for over 8 hours and is the heartbeat of your event.
