The Top Ten Questions We Get Asked as DJs

In the last few months, we have been inundated with emails, inquiries, calls, and appointments… One thing that I’ve noticed is that brides, or clients in general, ask some of the hardest questions to answer… Not because they are hard on us, actually they are easy to answer because every bride asks the same questions over and over… but because the answers are extremely technical… One question really stands out… “What type of equipment do you use?”

Well if I were to say, Denon, Pioneer, HP, QSC PLX Series, Electrovoice Speakers…. Then I’m sure I would get a look like… ??? HUH? I think nowadays there is such a vast amount of DJ gear, Professional and Non-Professional, that it’s hard for us as DJs to even know the difference, let alone brides. Even the Non-Professional equipment is very reliable and really good that some DJs use non-pro equipment and do a great job djing.

I try to focus the attention not on equipment, but on quality of service, reputation, and my client receiving the exact service that they are hiring me to do..

That can be from simple, fun and enjoyable… To Extravagant, Elegante, and Memorable… Each client has an outlook of what their event is, so it’s my job to get that out of them, find out the best way to do it, and then with my talents (not my equipment) set out to do it the best that I know how to do…

Below is a short video on the top 10 Questions I get asked as a DJ.

    I find it funny that people ask if the DJ will take requests also. You would think that since you’re hiring them they will play the music that you’re hiring them for lol.

    Maybe people think that they DJ will only play his/her favorite music and simply ignore what everybody wants to hear. Wouldn’t that be the day? :)

    I like how you explain to the client more about service, reputation and getting the service they have hired you for.
    There are tons of electronic brands out there and I’m sure a lot of people wouldn’t even be able to tell the difference between them.
