For most people, a wedding the first event to come to mind when considering why you might hire a DJ. But DJs run many more events than weddings, and chances are there’s an event coming up for you soon that could use a DJ. Here is a look at five events that can be made all the better by hiring a DJ to handle the music.
Since most people think of weddings, it’s only natural to list weddings first. A DJ is an excellent choice for handling the music on your wedding day because a DJ can handle a wide variety of music tastes, offer valuable audio expertise (for letting a guest perform a song, for example), and emcee the reception as needed.
School dances, of course, always need a DJ. A truly great DJ will be up to speed on all the latest top 40 hits and will be able to cater to any censorship needs for students. The best school dances typically incorporate a variety of both fast-paced pop tracks, well-known dance tracks, and slow, romantic songs.
Corporate parties—especially end of the year corporate parties—are often big to-dos, and having a DJ present will add an appropriate level of professionalism when it comes to the music. DJs aren’t just for pop-driven dance parties, either; they can handle even the classiest of company events. Whether you’re looking to create a classy ambiance or something that will make guests want to dance, a DJ will know just how to gauge the crowd and play the right tunes for the right ambiance.
If you’re trying to throw the ultimate birthday party (or just a house party), either for yourself or for a loved one, hiring a DJ is a great way to set the bar high. A DJ will know how to engage the crowd and will emcee the event in such a way that the guest of honor feels like a million bucks. Tell the people you’re inviting to your birthday party that a DJ will be there, and guests are sure to come.
Charity and fundraising events
A DJ is a great option for charity and fundraising events as well, as showing guests a good time is essential to encouraging charitable donations. A DJ can create just the right ambiance for the event and will typically be more affordable than a live band.
Really, there’s no limit to the types of events you might hire a DJ for. House parties, bar mitzvahs, quinceaneras, graduation parties, holiday parties, New Year’s Eve parties...the list goes on and on. If you’re really looking to amp up the crowd and up the dance factor at the next party you’re throwing, go ahead and consider hiring a DJ.
