Did You Know?
Most schools have committees that get together to make certain decisions about their upcoming dance or school function. The entertainment, is the most critical decision to be made. The success or failure of the evening depends on the DJ or entertainment. Most students are not going for the food, decor, pictures, or venue. They are going to dance to the music they want to hear, and have the time of their life. Who is responsible for this? The DJ! From the worst-case scenario of a DJ who doesn't show up, to equipment failure (followed by lots of angry teenagers), to the "old school" DJ who still plays the same music he has played for the last 20 years. If you’re looking for the cheapest DJ you can find, you’re doing it wrong.
Benefits Of A Professional (Not Cheap) Prom DJ
Music is "life" to some teenagers. Having a DJ who knows how to identify what’s not only popular, but ‘works’ and in what moment and order is very important.
Clean songs should be played at any school dance. “Clean” doesn’t just mean curse words, but also violent attitudes and explicit content. We use interaction for the younger crowds to help steer them away from "dirty dancing."
A professional DJ knows how to read a crowd. If song “1” worked, they know that song “2” and “3” will also work. Knowing what songs will work and when, only comes with experience.
Slow songs, but not many slow songs. Sweating in nice clothes while barely moving is something most kids to not want to experience.
Knowing how to flow smoothly through different levels of energy, and knowing when to end a peak in energy, prevents this.
Nerves. Most students will act like their nerves are not kicking in. This is NOT TRUE. Do you remember what it was like to be in school? A professional DJ can quickly remove those nerves with the right music and interaction, and will do it without even "trying". If the DJ has to try too hard, he’s not doing his job right.
Lighting. Most people are uncomfortable being the center of attention. With house lights on, people will not dance no matter how hard you try. Professional DJ lighting allows enough light for safety, but not so much that the students feel like they’re in the spotlight. Those student that want to be in the spotlight, will get this luxury as well.
Professional DJs have back-up equipment. We always have a back-up plan.
These days knowing how to interact on a microphone can make or break a school dance or function. Knowing when to interact and when not to depending on the demographic is a huge key to success or failure. We understand that some schools need little to no interaction, and others absolutely love it and want it every single time.
Keeping Them At The Dance
Besides the "time of your life" atmosphere that the DJ should create, it’s very important to think of the safety of keeping the students at the dance. Students who leave the venue may no longer be supervised, and all of their parents assume they are still at the dance. A "bad" DJ will send students home hours early, which is terrible for so many reasons.
Do your homework
A pretty looking website with lots of great pictures doesn’t mean much. Who knows if those pics are even from a party they did themselves? Our video speaks for itself. We film video ourselves at most events we do. For an event as important as school dance, you should meet with the DJ in person. Applying to be your DJ is just the same as applying for any job. Questions are more than welcomed. We can share stories with you about school events we have done that were both positive and negative. A professional DJ company won’t mind telling you about the mistakes they learned from along the years.
