Selecting an effective and entertaining DJ service is crucial to a successful event. If you are hosting or planning an event that requires music you need to consider several factors. Consider first, of course, the music; secondly, the delivery of the music or the sound; and finally, the individual DJ or talent who interacts with your audience.
Getting appropriate music played for your event seems like a common sense no-brainer. However, who has not been at a wedding or other function where someone’s cousin is playing music and they play 8 songs in a row that they like – but are totally unsuitable for the audience. It is also important to consider a DJ Service that plays one hundred percent fully licensed music. It is fair to recording artists and reflects positively on your event. An experienced DJ service will have all of the music you want and know how and when to play it, so it works for your audience.
Great music is better when it is delivered well. An experienced Calgary DJ service will have the latest sound equipment suitable for any room, hall or event center. Look for a DJ service who understands the kind of event you are having, the room or hall you have booked and the volume and ambience you are trying to create.
Most reputable DJ services also have lighting shows and other visual effects that you can consider adding. Often, effective lighting is included as part of the base price you pay. Be sure to ask the Calgary DJ you hire if they have lighting and what kind of visual effects they have.
Perhaps most important is the talent and personality of the DJ for your event. Not only is a DJ a solid technician, able to set up state of the art sound and lighting, they also have to be able to troubleshoot technical issues and solve any problems that come up. But a DJ also needs to be entertaining and engaging with your audience. A good sound system and a DJ with a clear voice is the first step. Many Calgary DJs are also experts at interacting with their audience and creating a party atmosphere – if that’s what you want.
To make sure you are getting a talented DJ talk to the DJ service and make sure you can meet your DJ before the event. You can get a feel for their personality. Don’t be afraid to ask for references from other clients who have had a Calgary DJ service. You can find out right away how previous clients have enjoyed the DJ service.
An experienced DJ service in the Calgary area will be able to adapt to any event. A DJ service with years of success can make a wedding reception, a school dance, a bar mitzvah (or bat mitzvah), or a corporate gathering a resounding success.
