Do I Need a DJ?
Are you debating if you should hire a DJ or not?
Do you have a timeline for your event where specific announcements or music needs to play throughout the day or evening?
What are your sound abilities in the space that you’re working with? Is there a system already there available for you or speakers need to be brought in?
Considering announcements and/or speeches? Is there a microphone available for your event?
Let’s talk about why you might want to consider hiring one for your event.
If you answered yes to any of these questions you may want to consider hiring a DJ to make this a seamless experience from beginning to end. Having somebody dedicated for the music/sounds timeline is one of highlights of events which also becomes very apparent and clear when there is an error/repetition of songs.
If you have a professional handling these duties there is less opportunities and more control over what is selected, whereas if you have a friend or family member handling these duties they may not be familiar with the equipment or the importance of each moment compared to a professional who would be dedicated to making sure that the music experiences is as you’d like.
If you are considering having a family or friend taking on these responsibilities make sure you also consider that persons experience and how you want them to be a part of that event. Be clear with your expectations and make sure they understand what they are committing to by taking on the responsibility.
Hiring a professional allows your guests to truly enjoy their time without having responsibilities to oblige to. Another thing to keep in mind is can you trust them to get it done and get it done to your expectations?
