Top 5 Signs You’ve Hired A Bad Wedding DJ

I don’t mean to be critical, but there are definite red flags to watch out for when hiring a “musical host” as they call it these days.  I thought I would share                                                    Here are the Top 5 Signs 

5.  Too much time eating at the “hired help” table .  A quick sit down is OK, but then he/she should be at his DJ table WORKING!!

4. Playing just YOUR favorites or his/hers and not the crowd’s – Your songs are important, don’t get me wrong, but remember that the DJ is there to entertain the WHOLE group. Save the 2 hour heavy metal playlist for another day.

3. Not explaining overtime rates beforehand.   You should know how much he is going to charge before the wedding begins.  It should be in the contract.

2. The music’s so loud that it’s cooking the food on the guests’ plates – Especially during dinner. give them  a chance to talk -Some people haven’t seen each other in years! Crank it up later on!

1.Comes dressed in baggy jeans and backwards Red Sox Cap-  My God, at least have some common sense and wear a Yankees cap!  ‘Nuff said.

I hope this helps.  Oh, darn!  I forgot to mention that if you are looking for professional music service with many years of successful parties behind him, there are places you can look.  I even know one guy who will write a special song about the bride and groom and perform it for them on his keyboard. (And he never wears a baseball cap, and he doesn’t eat much.)
