Mispronounced names during the
Our DJ will go over the names with you in the planning meeting and
spell them phonetically if necessary so he can pronounce them properly. He
will also review the names with the entire bridal party just prior to the
Announcements that are difficult to hear
Our DJs have experience speaking in front of crowds. They know that in
order to convey an effective message they must first get the attention of
the guests and then deliver the announcement with a clear, confident
Poor sound quality or no sound at all:
We use only
top grade professional sound equipment and continually upgrade as necessary.
We keep all equipment well maintained to reduce the possibility of
malfunction. All of our DJs carry a complete backup system so they can still
perform in the rare event of equipment failure.
Constantly empty dance floor:
Our DJs recognize when
the music they are playing is working and when it is not. They know the
right time to change the music and what to change it to. They also know
enough to return to a previously successful music style later in the
reception. They will not be all over the music map like some inexperienced
DJs who might play Garth Brooks, AC/DC and 50 Cent in succession.
Valuable time being wasted: Some
DJs are caught off guard and start fumbling with papers and CDs when they
should be making something happen, causing inevitable delays in the
formalities of your reception. We make our final preparations in the week
leading up to your wedding so we can show up fully prepared. Going over the
sequence of events and getting the music ready in advance allows us to know
exactly what should be happening and who needs to be involved at any point
during the reception.
Missed photo opportunities:
Our DJs work with the
photographer and give them advance notice so they are not caught off guard
when those special moments occur. This allows them to position their
equipment properly and make sure their cameras are loaded and ready to
capture those special moments on film.
Lack of musical variety: We receive regular shipments of CDs so we have new music from all genres as it becomes available. We are also constantly adding a wide range of Greatest Hits CDs as well as music from around the world in order to satisfy a variety of musical preferences.
Hearing the bride and groom being referred to as "the bride and groom" for the entire reception: You have names and they should be used. We believe it is important for the DJ to get to know the bride and groom for several reasons, including this one. When you see the face of someone you know, their name automatically comes to mind. That's the way it should be when your DJ is talking to or about you.
