It’s important to get to know a DJ before hiring them for your event.

Whether you’re planning a wedding, school dance, Bar Mitzvah or a corporate event, the entertainment is one of the most important parts of the night. When looking for a DJ, you should ask a few questions to get to know the person before hiring them, as you should look for a DJ that will fit your occasion perfectly.

  • Who will be DJing my event?

This is the first question you should ask when calling an entertainment company. Instead of speaking to someone at the company and setting a date then thinking that you’re all done, it’s a good idea to talk to the person who will be performing. You want to get to know them and make sure that they are the right DJ for you and your event.

  • What is your favorite type of music, and what type of music do you like to play?

Once you speak to the person who will be performing, this is a great first question to ask them. It is not only an icebreaker to start the conversation, but it also tells a lot about their personality and tells you more about their style and musical preference.

  • Can you assist me in choosing the music for my father-daughter dance, king and queen of prom dance, etc.?

If your event includes a special dance, you may want a DJ to be able to pick the song that works best for the moment. A good DJ will know to take into account the audience and should be aware which songs are appropriate for a wedding vs. a school dance.

  • Do you take requests from our guests?

Depending on your crowd, taking requests from guests can be an essential part of the event. Wedding reception guests and kids attending school dances like to be able to request songs that they find fun and get excited to dance to, instead of listening to songs that they don’t know as well.

  • Can we submit a “Do Not Play” list?

This is very important for any events with children present, as the DJ should know not to play explicit or inappropriate songs. Even if you do not provide a specific list of songs the DJ should not play, it should be clear what type of songs you don’t want playing at your event.

  • How do you motivate the crowd to dance?

At any event, the last thing you want is to have everyone sitting down and an empty dance floor. DJ’s are supposed to make the event fun and encourage everyone to dance, so it is important to ask just how to intend to do so. The DJ should know how to read the crowd, build up energy and never have a dull moment.
