The Importance of Hiring an Experienced DJ

 The Importance of Hiring an Experienced DJSo, you’re looking for a DJ to entertain guests at your office party or best friend’s wedding. Maybe you’ve found a few DJs on Facebook or Yelp and decided to check them out at a local event. Turns out nobody’s dancing, the playlist is annoying, and the equipment fails in between the event.  Are you willing to take the risk of hiring average or inexperienced DJs for your event?

No, you’re not, which is why you need to hire a professional DJ entertainment service that brings in experience and credibility and the proper equipment and diverse playlists. To ensure your event doesn’t suck, read on to learn the 5 reasons why you should never hire an inexperienced DJ

5 Reasons Not to Hire an Inexperienced DJ for Your Event


  • Inexperienced DJs Play Too Full-On, Often Too Early


Most average DJs treat every event like a rave. Weddings, Bar & Bat Mitzvahs, and corporate parties are all different events in terms of décor, theme, and guests. It takes time for the guests to settle in. Unfortunately, inexperienced DJs smash out the number-one EDM track too early, expecting people to miraculously head to the dance floor. This deluded tactic often fails, and by the time the guests are ready, the DJ runs out of choices quickly. 


  • A Low Range of Song Choices


Average professional DJs often stick to deep house, hip hop, and trance, which is great for club events, but not so much for more sophisticated, mainstream events. Therefore, they end playing dance remixes from the top 10 songs in the last two years hoping they will suffice. Some even fail to consider the age groups at events. At every given event, you can find guests from 10-60 years old on average, which means that you potentially have 5 decades of music to choose from. 


  • Little or No Mike Experience


Experienced professional DJs regularly host events or at the very least, announce proceedings. The last thing event managers need is a DJ with stage fright who just stares moodily at guests and mumbles important announcements. 


  • Low-Grade Equipment and Backup


You can determine a DJ’s abilities or experience by their equipment. Inexperienced DJs generally have limited equipment, and the last thing you want is for them to show up with an iPhone and a small set of speakers. Secondly, average DJs usually rent equipment that can potentially malfunction during events. More importantly, they don’t have a backup system to make sure they successfully close the event. 


  • Inexperienced DJs Might Not Be In Business at the Time of Your Event


Many low-priced and inexperienced DJs don’t have enough capital to support and sustain their services. Therefore, there’s a chance that they might close shop within a few months. The last thing you want to deal with is cancellation just before your event.
