QUALITY DISC JOCKEYS FOR EVERYONE!


In 2012 there are thousands more DISC JOCKEYS than there were in 2010. Teenagers

with Ipods/laptops and a pair of powered speakers are all over the country

offering “PROFESSIONAL DJ services” at insanely low prices. When I named this blog

“QUALITY DISC JOCKEYS FOR EVERYONE”  I didn’t specify what kind of quality, just

that there is a level of quality.


Let’s talk about the different quality levels of
DISC JOCKEYS

PROFESSIONAL DISC JOCKEYS will be someone that is a full time DISC JOCKEY. They will not have a full time job and be a DISC JOCKEY as a hobby. At some point they made a decision to dedicate themselves to becoming a full time entertainer and they realized that this is truly a full time career.

A PROFESSIONAL DISC JOCKEY will have:

 

  • high end PROFESSIONAL DJ equipment
  • excellent sound
  • a huge library of music
  • excellent microphones
  • modern PROFESSIONAL DJ LED type dance floor lighting
  • a PROFESSIONAL DJ wardrobe
  • reliable transportation
  • back up equipment
  • liability insurance
  • a back-up plan in case of emergency or sickness.  

A PROFESSIONAL DISC JOCKEY will be much more than someone that just shows up and plays some music, he/she will arrive with an itinerary to deliver an outstanding performance from start to finish. Your professional DISC JOCKEY will have extensive experience and expertise and will be very helpful for planning your event. His/her professionalism will be obvious in the first 30 seconds of your initial phone call! One more thing… a PROFESSIONAL DISC JOCKEY will answer the phone when you call, or call back in a very short time!

GOOD DISC JOCKEYS  will probably be someone that has a full time job and is a DISC JOCKEY as a hobby on the side. At some point they made a decision to dedicate themselves to working a full time job and they realized that they could not make enough money as a full time DISC JOCKEY

A good DISC JOCKEY could possibly have:

 

  • high end PROFESSIONAL DJ equipment

WHY YOU NEED A COORDINATOR FOR A DESTINATION WEDDING, AND HIRE A PROFESSIONAL WEDDING DJ AND PHOTOGRAPHER

WHY YOU NEED A COORDINATOR FOR A DESTINATION WEDDING

And HIRE A PROFESSIONAL WEDDING DJ AND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I’m going to start with a real life destination wedding that happened today.

The players

  • A wonderful couple from 2 states
  • 70 very nice guests from 2 states
  • A pastor from another state
  • A local wedding staging company (decorated arch and chairs, table for sand ceremony), let’s call them Weddings on the Beach
  • A local WEDDING DJ
  • A local WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

The Schedule

  • Bride arrives at office of Weddings on the Beach at 12:00 PM
  • WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER arrives at 12:30 at above for before photos
  • WEDDING DJ arrives at beach site for prelude music at 12:45PM
  • Processional starts at 1:00 PM
  • Bride walks down aisle at 1:02 PM
  • 15 minute ceremony
  • After wedding formal and posed photos from 1:17 to 2:15
  • Bridal party and guests arrive at reception  at 2:30 PM

Here’s what really happened

  • 12:15 PM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER arrives at office above. Office is locked and nobody is there
  • WEDDING DJ AND PHOTOGRAPHER wait until 12:35 PM, still nobody there so they head to wedding site at the beach across the street
  • 12:37 PM nobody at the site has a clue about anything and nobody can reach the bride or bridal party by phone
  • 12:45 PM wedding stager gets a call from bride and goes back across street to let bride in, photographer goes too with instructions to call WEDDING DJ when bride arrives and to have bride call 15 minutes before she’s ready so WEDDING DJ can start prelude music and ushers can seat the guests.
  • 12:50 PM bridesmaids arrive at wedding site and state that the 1 hour and 30 minute drive actually took 2 hours and 20 minutes because of traffic and that the bride was leaving 10 minutes behind them
  • 1:10 PM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER calls WEDDING DJ and says bride has arrived and will call back to give 15 minutes notice

HOW TO CHOOSE MUSIC FOR YOUR WEDDING AND RECEPTION

HOW TO CHOOSE MUSIC FOR YOUR WEDDING AND RECEPTION

Choosing WEDDING MUSIC for your ceremony and reception can be really easy or really hard depending how you go about it!

It also make a BIG difference whether you hired a PROFESSIONAL WEDDING DJ or a cheap DJ.

Let’s start with the WEDDING MUSIC.

You have 3 important WEDDING SONGS to pick out

  • The processional (when the bridal party comes down the aisle)
  • The bridal march (when the bride comes down the aisle)
  • The recessional (when the newlyweds lead the wedding party down the aisle after the ceremony)

You can also choose some prelude music  (played while the guests arrive)

If you really want to you can pick a song for your candle/sand ceremony) (We don’t recommend it as it is only about 20 seconds)

As the bride and groom you can pick any songs that you want!

If you want to stay traditional then you would use Canon in D for the processional (you still pick what instruments you want). Then you would have the bridal march (we recommend Jonathon Cain’s version www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-obMBI6gVk).  Finally a classical piece for your recessional. (there are several different versions of the traditional recessional). Have your WEDDING DJ play various versions for you and try to pick some that flow together. We usually go with  the elegant versions of the processional and recessional to go with Jonathon Cain’s bridal march. If you hired a WEDDING DJ strictly based on price I would pick the WEDDING SONGS you want and burn them on a CD for the CHEAP DJ just to be safe!

 

Now on to the wedding reception music.

These are the traditional dances that you will need to

pick out WEDDING SONGS for:

  • Your intro/entry song
  • Your 1st dance
  • Your father/daughter dance
  • Your mother/son dance
  • Your garter removal song
  • Your bouquet toss song
  • Your catchers’ song (the people that caught the garter and bouquet)
  • Your cake cutting song
  • Your last dance
