How to Choose the Perfect Houston DJ for Your Event

With so many great DJs out there, it can be daunting to choose the perfect Houston DJ for your event. However, by following a few simple tips, you’ll be celebrating and dancing the night away before you know it.  This same advice holds true no matter where you’re looking for DJs, whether that’s Houston or elsewhere. Here’s what you need to know.

DJ Services: Three Important Considerations

DJ services are more than just someone spinning records. In fact, great DJ services are like the engine powering your party to bigger and more exciting moments. They’ll dictate the event’s chosen pace and play the right music to set the mood you want to set.  This makes them a crucial component in your guests’ experience. Here are three important considerations before hiring a DJ.

Budget is Key

One of the first things to consider before hiring a DJ is how much you can afford to spend. Knowing how much you’re willing to pay can help set expectations for your event. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.  A great DJ may cost more than their competition, but they also take on a bigger role in the event.

Get Scheduling in Order

Time is limited for events, especially during certain times of the year, so a DJ’s schedule can quickly fill up. Make sure the DJ you want is available on the date of your event. Not just that, they should be available for the hours your event’s being held.  Depending on the DJ, they may also want a few hours before for a soundcheck as well. Don’t face the frustration of finding the perfect DJ for your event only to realize they’re unavailable.

Set Your Destination

Having the perfect DJ at the perfect times means very little if there isn’t a perfect venue for your event. You should have a good idea of the event you’re throwing and what music you expect to be played. This will help narrow the field and find DJs who specialize or otherwise excel at your event.  Ultimately, some DJs are best at weddings, for example, while some specialize in corporate events.

More Tips to Get the Best DJs Performing at Your Events

After looking through available DJs, you may feel ready to hire them. However, before finalizing that appointment, there are two more important things to consider.

Music Library

The DJ’s music library is where the metaphorical rubber meets the road or where the vinyl meets the turntable. It’s important to get a look at a DJ’s music library, music selection, and song selections.  A good DJ should have a massive collection consisting of thousands of songs. If you aren’t sure, ask them for demos of tracks they believe will fit your theme.

Equipment and Set-Up

It’s essential to know ahead of time what equipment your DJ has access to. For example, do they have their own equipment, or will a separate supplier need to be contacted? If your DJ is the MC of the event, make sure they have access to a high-quality mic.  This will help avoid feedback or other audio problems common at live events.
