How can a DJ help me?

Are you planning a party for a special event, for instance a birthday, engagement or anniversary, and are at a loss as to what sort of entertainment to provide? Perhaps you are looking for a way of providing music and more of a vibe at a wedding reception, but don’t have the space or the budget for a full band? If you need entertainment which can be tailored to meet all needs and ages, your best bet would be to hire a DJ who can tailor music and lighting to suit any occasion.

Use a DJ to liven up your corporate event

Whilst office parties may often take the form of a lunch or dinner at a restaurant, there are times when year-end or Christmas parties are just that – celebratory parties, complete with music and fun. A DJ will often keep the party moving and ensure that all ages are catered for during the evening. It is surprising how many older, more staid management staff enter into the swing of the event and allow themselves to temporarily loosen the barriers of seniority and simply enjoy the music and the atmosphere. It becomes a great all-round team-building exercise on its own.

DJs are all-round entertainers

A DJ is definitely a versatile entertainer, able to accommodate almost every type of music genre, from hip-hop to sentimental oldies. Most DJs have a wide selection of music in their portfolios and have additional lighting props and options which add to the atmosphere of the evening. Whilst younger people like a lot of movement, music with a definite volume and beat and a constantly changing light array, older folk prefer more sedate music and lighting in which they are able to reminisce about years gone by.

Their portfolio of available music is vast

As they play so many different kinds of music and need to keep the music flowing seamlessly for hours at a time, DJs have thousands of songs digitally stored and easily accessible. In the past, DJs used to have to carry vinyl records and audio tapes to their gigs, but advances in the digital field have allowed storage of music in a format which is easy to transport without losing any of the original quality and depth of sound. DJs themselves are consummate entertainers, able to gauge the needs of their audience and provide the right music at the right time.

Most parties tend to start out very actively with people wanting to take to the dance floor with fast, upbeat music which brings out the enjoyment of pure fun. As the evening progresses, the DJ will generally tone down the atmosphere with quieter, slower music which relaxes and becomes more romantic. It is generally up to the DJ to read the signs which indicate that the party is slowing down and people are beginning to want a slower pace towards the end of the event.

Music, lights and … atmosphere!

A DJ is responsible for setting much of the mood for the evening with both music and lighting. Lighting for the event is as much a part of the evening, it seems, as the music. Some DJs still make use of the glitter disco balls which were so well known in the seventies and eighties, but coloured lights are still as popular as ever in creating an intimate or fun atmosphere for any party. Many DJs also offer karaoke services, bringing the participants up to the stage to become their own superstars for the evening whilst they sing along with their idols. And what fun this is, whether you are a natural singer or someone who simply cannot find the right musical note at the right time. These events are highly entertaining, and whilst hidden talent may be uncovered for the evening, those who cannot sing simply enjoy being part of the event, especially children and young adults.

How to find the DJ for your special event

Check their online ratings and customer reviews

DJs may be found through newspaper ads, flyers, entertainment magazines and the Yellow Pages. As more people are turning to the internet for quick searches, more entertainers are offering their services through this medium, whether through simple advertising or creating their own websites. Uptasker itself is a great resource in this regard, as you will find DJs listed in your specific geographical area, making the choice so much easier. Always check online ratings and customer reviews, where possible, as these will give you the best indication of customer satisfaction levels, as well as the range of services offered by the DJ. The overall sphere of the DJ is still relatively small, so If possible, use word of mouth referrals from people you know and trust who have enjoyed an occasion hosted by a good DJ.
