Q. How do I select a DJ ?
Selecting a DJ for an event is one of the most important decisions you will make. Because more often than not, what the guest remembers the most about a party, is the good time they had. The music selection and sound quality plays a big role in that experience.
The following are a few questions you should ask your DJ. This process will help you clarify key issues about DJ's professionalism, equipment and other important aspects "than can make or break your party."
Ask as many questions as you need to feel confident that you have made the right decision.
Q. Is your DJ licensed, insured and registered in the county?
A. Being licensed, insured and registered assures that you are dealing with a professional. DJ Elvis is licensed, insured and registered in MiamiDade County.
Q. Should your DJ provide you with a written contract and list of references?
A. It is very important that a written contract outlines the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and your DJ, especially the start and end of event, music selection, DJ attire, etc. DJ Elvis's contract is simple and easily understandable and a list of reference is available upon request.
Q. Is your DJ available to be at the rehearsals? Can your DJ help you in the planning of your event?
A. This service is included as part of the contract with DJ Elvis.
Q. Will your DJ be on time and carry himself in a professional manner all throughout the event?
A. DJ Elvis will set up and check the equipment at least half an hour before the event starts and will not consume any alcoholic beverage, warranting the respect you and your guest deserve.
Q. Does your DJ use professional equipment? Does the DJ carry backup equipment as a contingency if there are any problems?
A. Only professional Mobil DJ equipment is designed to take the abuse of different environments and long hours of continuous use. The best brands in the industry are Peavey, Yamaha, QSC, Dennon and Mackie. A combination of this is used by DJ Elvis. He also carries duplicates on site in case any of the equipment components fail. Also a backup DJ is on call in case of an accident, sickness, death, or any other problems. Your party will go on and will not be affected by problems we may have to address.
I hope this simple guide has helped you understand a little better the world of Mobile DJs and how it can affect the success or failure of your event. Whatever your decision may be, I hope you have a great and memorable party.
