It is important to understand that the music for a wedding reception will make or break the success of the night. Too many people underestimate the importance of this, and leave their wedding DJ booking until the last moment. Or worse, they rely on an iPod or an inexperienced friend for this vital part of the evening.
If guests don't like the music they will leave early. This is also why you should always check your DJs previous experience & client feedback before booking him for your wedding or event. Any good DJ should be able to show you a stack of glowing reviews from previous wedding clients. They should also show respect for your dress code, and for the scheduling of your day – the last thing you want is a shabbily dressed guy showing up half an hour late!
All of our Discotech DJs are experienced, and you can rest assured they will be aiming to fill that dance floor with every song. Hiring a wedding DJ gives you flexibility and an immediate ability to change the song without altering the flow of the dancing. Guests requests at your wedding or event are something that you can't always determine prior the event and hiring a DJ enables you to give the guests what they are wanting at any given time in the evening, without the hassle of you personally having to deal with the music on a night that you would rather just enjoy.
The skill of a good DJ is reading a party and playing the songs to suit, and this is a skill that only comes with fine-tuning your selections crowd after crowd after crowd. Are they ready to rage? Is it a romantic moment? Do they need a rest? Is there a part of the group that is in need of a little extra attention? The more weddings a DJ performs for, the better they will get. At the end of the day, you are not just hiring a DJ for his or her music, you are hiring them for their experience in knowing what songs work when with different audiences.
