Why use a DJ instead of live
Bands, even smaller ones, usually cost twice as much, or more,
than a Disc Jockey would.
DJ's play the ORIGINAL Music, the way everyone knows it.
Bands may play the same songs, but they probably won't be as recognizable
to you and your guests and if they don't practice regularly, they may not
sound good at all. DJ's don't have to practice their music, it's from the
DJ's have THOUSANDS of songs available with a very wide
variety of music type., Bands usually know how to play less than 100 songs
and the variety is usually limited. Remember, you want ALL your guests, young
AND old to have a good time.
DJ's can accommodate requests from you and your guests
most of the time. Most bands don't take requests, except in advance, and
cannot play them if they don't know the song.
DJ's can play the music for your Ceremony, Cocktails, Dinner
And Dancing; including those special songs you want to hear. They can
also MC events, like Cake Cutting. Bands have to learn those special songs
and rarely go out into the audience.
Bands take breaks; usually 15 minutes every hour which
means you may lose some guests before all the important events are done.
Our DJ's make sure the music never stops, so your guests can keep
dancing all night long and we mix in the events throughout your reception.
Non-Stop Music: DJ's play
music non-stop, usually no pause time from one
song to the next. Bands end each song, and then pause while they decide
which song to play next.
This 'breaks up' the dancing after every song.
Our DJ's periodically check the sound levels, from the
audienceís perspective, so the music is never too loud or too quiet. Bands
usually end up playing too loud because they cannot perform 'in-the-
audience' checks because they must stay onstage.
short, a Disc Jockey provides you with the widest range of quality sound
and music for a bargain price and they don't take breaks every hour!
The Right Music...
Having a Disc Jockey
you can trust to handle all the important details, and be your
master of ceremonies is very important. Where your Disc Jockey should really
shine, is knowing what music will entertain your guests, and get them out to the
dance floor. As a general rule, the guests will not dance until after the Bride
Groom have had their first dance. This may be followed immediately by any other
special dances you choose, such as the bride and her father and groom and his
mother, etc... In most cases your Disc Jockey will kick off the dance portion of
reception after the special dances. Your Disc Jockeys should also introduce
themselves to your guests, and assure them they will be more than happy to
accept any danceable requests. This brings your guests up to the dance floor, so
they donít begin to feel left out.
