Comparing DJ Services?
Here's What To Look For!
Prompt return of your phone calls or Emails
Does the DJ you are thinking about hiring respond in a prompt manner? You should expect to get a call back or an email back within 24 hours. The only exception may be weekends when most DJs are performing.
Willingness to schedule a virtual meeting, phone call or in-person appointment.
Will the DJ try to meet with you or at least schedule a video conference?
Do you LIKE the person you're meeting with?
Chemistry between you (as a couple) and your DJ entertainer is important. As your DJ will be your M.C and lead your celebration, there is value in personalities meshing. Can you see this person (and their personality) leading your day?
Does the DJ have a music list or online system that shows you what sort of music he or she has available?
You need to be assured that the DJ you hire not only has a sizable collection, but has a variety of music, especially for wedding receptions, where many different styles of music and guests will be in the same room together.
Does the DJ use professional grade equipment?
Every DJ should have reliable, professional equipment, made for commercial use. From laptops to DJ controllers... speakers to lighting, pro-audio is a must. Brands such as JBL, EV, QSC, Sennheiser, Shure, Apple, Mackie, EAW, Numark & Pioneer are industry standards.
Will the DJ offer to meet with you AFTER signing the contract, to plan your event?
A professional DJ is ALWAYS willing to discuss your event at any time before the event starts, and should display the flexibility to accommodate changes and help you solve problems. Meeting or phone/video conferencing your DJ to plan your event is of paramount importance to a successful event such as a wedding reception.
Is there a back-up plan?
The plan is NOT to have emergencies come up. But what if they do? What plans are in place, if your DJ gets sick, gets into an accident or has a family emergency? For this reason, working with a professional company, has its benefits. When working with a single DJ operator, he/she likely does NOT have a "just in case" plan. With Weddings By Kurtis Cross, we ALWAYS have a scheduled back-up DJ with equipment, in the event of an emergency. We will not let you down!
