When Should You Decide To Book That DJ?

We get asked by fellow professionals, future brides & grooms, and even people planning a special event, “When should we decide to book that dj?” Our answer is always the same, “RIGHT AWAY!”.

There are a few reasons why you should book that dj immediately and here they are:

We are an Exclusive DJ Company.

What that means is that we are limited on the number of DJs we have on our team. The reason for this is because it is hard to find the perfect people to represent our brand as well as trust handling some of the biggest and most important days of your lives. We always keep one DJ open to ensure that in case of emergency, you will still have someone from our crew be at your event handling everything correctly.

A DJ will make or break your event.

It goes without saying that entertainment is one of the most (if not THE Most) important factor for any event. You can have a beautiful venue, perfect decorations, great food and drink options… But, if your guests are bored, or if they don’t know what is going on, or if your DJ just plain old sucks, your event wont be anything like it could have been. Just as well, you can have a basic backyard bar-b-q with plastic place settings and if your DJ is awesome, your event ROCKED!

All you need to Book That DJ Is a Date Set! So don’t hesitate, you might miss out.

So if you’re planning a Wedding, Birthday Party, Surprise Party, Holiday Party, Corporate Event, Etc… BOOK THAT DJ TODAY!

A Wedding Professional’s Advice On Booking A Band Or A DJ

Want to have an AMAZING WEDDING?

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Are you on the fence of deciding to book either a Band or a DJ for your big day? Are you set on booking just a band? Here’s why you should consider doing BOTH!

First Thing’s First… Your Budget!

When creating your wedding budget, things can add up quickly and get you a little stressed out. It’s ok, that’s normal. You want to create a budget that works best for you. However, one thing you should definitely keep in mind is the Entertainment section of your budget. This is THE MOST IMPORTANT element of a Wedding! Here’s why…

1. You can have the most beautiful decorations, the most succulent food, at the most elegant venue. But, if your entertainment element is Sub Par or Unprofessional, your guests will simply have an “OK” time, or not a good time at all. And… if your DJ (or Band) plain old “sucks”, your guests will probably leave early or complain. Nobody wants to remember a bad wedding.

2. You can have chicken nuggets on paper plates in a back yard… and if your DJ (Or Band) ROCKS, you had the BEST WEDDING OF THE YEAR!

So please make sure you take your Entertainment Options seriously.

Thinking of only booking a Band?

______________________________________________________________________________________________

If it’s in your budget to book a band for your wedding, you might want to consider adding a DJ as well. Not just any DJ, a Professional Wedding DJ. Most bands can definitely Jam Out and create a high energy vibe for you and your guests. However, many times the general flow of events throughout the evening, as well as the hosting aspect (keeping all of your guests informed and interested) falls to the way side. Bands have to take breaks throughout the evening, this is the perfect opportunity for a Professional DJ to keep your guests energized and having as much fun as possible.

BE AWARE: Some Wedding Bands will claim that they have a “DJ”. However this is, in most cases, simply not true. This idea of a “DJ” is simply a playlist put together to play during the bands breaks. This play list is played in some random order simply to play music.

SOLUTION: Hiring A Professional Wedding DJ that will be able to read the vibe of your guests and play music in a perfect order to keep them on the dance floor, as well as Beat-matching songs and playing the music that the band doesn’t have planned in their set list. We work closely with Wedding Bands and make sure we aren’t playing the songs that they plan on playing.

***These situations don’t happen with all bands. However, it has been our experience that Professional Bands LOVE when one of our Professional MC’s/DJ’s handles the Timeline and the Energy (essentially what we do best), so they can do what they do best. ROCK OUT!

Can’t Decide Whether To Book A Band Or A DJ?

______________________________________________________________________________________________

As a Professional Wedding DJ company, it pains us to say that we can not recreate the feel of Live Music. There’s simply nothing like it. However, when it comes down to it, Most Bands can’t do what a DJ does either; such as: beatmatch songs together, emcee/host, switch songs abruptly, change play list on the fly, interact with Bride and Groom/Guests while music is playing, and more. Don’t get us wrong, we aren’t trying to discredit bands at all. The point of this is to provide the proper information for you in order to help you with your entertainment decision for one of the biggest days in your life.

Is a band in your budget? If so, DEFINITELY Book a Band. But also add a DJ to handle the other elements that are important for entertaining your wedding guests. Don’t just book a band (See Be Aware Above). Most bands will lower their price when working with a Professional Wedding DJ, because they will play less music and have way less responsibility for the evening. Same goes for a DJ, we definitely lower our rates when working with a band.

If a band is not in your budget, it’s simple… BOOK THAT DJ!

These Groomsmen Rock Out To Backstreet Boys

We hope you enjoy this video as much as we did! We LOVE when bridal parties get creative!

Groom Sean Rajaee  and his groomsmen gave the bride Ariana a wonderful surprise when they  performed a choreographed dance at their wedding on Saturday.

The groomsmen opened their dance with Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love,” then right in to Destiny’s Child’s “Bootylicious,” lip-synced to the crowd the lyrics of the Backstreet Boy’s “I Want It That Way ” and then whipped out fake mustache props for a Persian dance number at the Los Angeles wedding. Then they did a wonderful finale for the dance routine to – Bruno Mars’s “Marry You.”
