A good Disc jockey (DJ) can customize the “show” so it becomes more original or more interesting to your guests.

Finding a Harford / Baltimore Area Disc jockey (DJ)
Locating a Disc jockey (DJ) in your area is relatively easy. Odds are you will be able to find a few dozen of them without really trying. The best way to narrow down your search to one professional Disc jockey (DJ) for your wedding reception is to make a list of potential choices, then do a little bit research to “weed out” the less-than-perfect ones. There are many places that you can look to find a professional Disc jockey (DJ) who operates in your local area. Here are a few choices:

Recommendations from friends and family
You probably already know someone who has used the services of a professional Disc jockey (DJ). Anyone who has thrown a party with entertainment has probably booked a Disc jockey (DJ). Ask for referrals from people you can trust. Ask your friends, family members, neighbors, co-workers or anyone else if they have ever used a specific Disc jockey (DJ) before.

You can also ask places that frequently host special events, such as churches, dance halls, school, trade-show exhibitors, or synagogues which Disc jockey (DJ) they prefer to use. Ask your source if they were happy with the service they received. Ask them if they would recommend this specific Disc jockey (DJ) to you.

Good recommendations are often hard to find, so if you are able to find someone who can highly recommend a specific Disc jockey (DJ) you may want to hire that person.

Traditional advertising
It is possible to find a local Disc jockey (DJ) through traditional advertising techniques. Traditional advertising refers to newspaper ads, TV commercials, radio spots, banners, flyers and even signs. In general, the better and more expensive the advertisement is- the more successful the Disc jockey (DJ) is. But it is not advised that you choose a Disc jockey (DJ) based solely on their advertisements!

Online consumer review websites

There are a lot of factors that will go into your choice. It is recommended that you do some research on each Disc jockey (DJ) on your list of potentials, and then compare each choice to determine which will be the best option for your wedding.

Potential Problems
Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that can go wrong if you hire the wrong Disc jockey (DJ) for your wedding reception. Odds are this event is very special to you, and the Disc jockey (DJ) choice you make could mean the difference between a perfect event and a ruined one. Here are some things that could go potentially wrong if you make a poor decision:

Horrible show and service
Just about anyone with a ipad, a few CDs/MP3 player and some speakers can claim to be a professional Disc jockey (DJ), but that doesn’t mean they can produce a professional-grade show. Without professional-grade equipment and an experienced Disc jockey (DJ) your event’s entertainment could end-up embarrassing you and your guests. Also, it takes a lot of knowledge and skill to make a wedding reception entertaining, something that not all Disc jockeys (DJs) possess.

A great Disc jockey (DJ) will know what types (styles) of music to perform, when to say the right lines or perform the best songs, how to ‘play’ (entertain) to a specific crowd, when to speak and when to shut-up. All of this knowledge comes with experience. A less-than-experienced Disc jockey (DJ) could end-up performing the wrong music and or jokes offending your guests or generally ruining the atmosphere.

A lack of accountability
It is important that your Disc jockey (DJ) shows-up and does the job they agreed to do for the agreed upon price. If you hire a low quality Disc jockey (DJ) — because they were the cheapest you may not receive this amount of accountability. Some (low dollar) Disc jockeys (DJs) may not bring the right types of equipment, or the right types of clothing, or they may do a poor job.

They may not act appropriately (such as drinking & smoking during your reception). In short, without a good contract you could end-up paying for a low-quality job. High-quality Disc jockeys (DJs) are responsible for the work they produce and can be held accountable for it.

Not showing up on time
It takes time to set-up all of the equipment required for a Disc jockey (DJ) for a wedding reception. All of this equipment must be set-up and ready to go before the event is supposed to begin. If you hire the wrong Disc jockey (DJ) they could show up late or worse- not at all!

No back-up plan
All event Disc jockeys (DJs) must have backup plans…..

1) What if it rains?

John did a wonderful job for us. Our event was an outdoor school function “Sleeping under the Stars”.
We got rain, lots of it! It did not matter to John, he just move the delicate equipment out of the rain and kept playing.
He was extremely flexible and very professional. Great with the kids (grade school) and worked very well and accommodating with the adults.
We used him for 4.5 hours. He also gave us a great price. We hope he is available to use again next year.
Thanks John! -Michelle S.

2) What if a speaker blows?
3) What happens if their props get forgotten?
4) Will they still be able to create the atmosphere you want for your special day?
5) The power goes out during your reception. Now what?

Yes! You may pay a little more but high-quality Disc jockeys (DJs) plan for “problems” so you do not need to worrry about the extra stress. They have extra equipment and are ready to deal with potential “issues” (so you do not need too). Low-quality Disc jockeys (DJs) leave you out of luck when something bad happens.

Being overcharged
You will sign a contract with any Disc jockey (DJ) before you hire them. This means that you will have to pay the Disc jockey (DJ) only if they fulfill their contractual obligations, regardless of whether or not they did a good job entertaining your guests. If you choose a low-quality Disc jockey (DJ) , you could end up feeling like you have been overcharged for their services- and no one likes that!

Because of the risk of these potential problems, it is vital that you choose a high-quality Disc jockey (DJ) for your wedding reception.

High-quality Disc jockeys (DJs) are professionals. They take pride in what they do and consider their presence at your special day to be an honor. Good Disc jockeys (DJs) want to do a good job, not only so that you will help enhance their reputation and their business, but also so that they can locate future business through your guests.

Bottom Line…..
The best way to determine whether or not a potential Disc jockey (DJ) is a high-quality one is to perform your research and to interview each candidate before you decide to hire them. This means checking up on their reputation and asking some very specific questions.
