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…
