When looking to hire a professional DJ for your event, you want to ensure that they are the very best at their job. With so many DJs out there, it can be hard to know who is the best and will provide you with the best service. Take a look at our tips for what to look for when hiring a professional DJ to know you’re getting the best of the best.
They Read The Crowd
A great DJ will know how to read the crowd they are performing for and will be playing songs catered to the specific audience. It’s often easy to tell when a DJ is simply playing music rather than entertaining the crowd, as he/she won’t be playing the right type of music for their audience.
A DJ should always be looking around to get a feel for the mood, rather than keeping their head down and playing anything they like. When a DJ is in touch with the room and ensures everyone is having a good time on the dance floor, you know that they will be amazing for your event.
The Set List Has a Good Flow
If it sounds like the DJ is putting songs that don’t make sense when played after one another, they do not possess the skills of a great DJ. A skilled professional will combine four or five songs to create a similar mood on the dance floor, and their whole set will flow from one song to the next.
Most events call for a few slow dances, and a professional DJ will know when and how to play these songs without creating an awkward feeling on the dance floor.
They Look Like They’re Having Fun
When hiring a DJ for your special event, you want to see that they love what they do! Great DJs all love music and entertaining crowds, and should look as though they are actually enjoying themselves during the set.
If a DJ has a huge smile on his/her face and is working to make sure every single guest is having fun, you know that they are the best of the best and are the right choice for your event!
