For anyone booking a DJ for an event, party or wedding it is certainly worth having in mind that not all DJs are the same. As a major supplier of DJs to the night club and hotel industry for the past decade Live Music Management are well aware of the strengths and the limitations of our DJ team.
There are great party DJs who cannot mix dance music just as there are club DJs who are not comfortable on the microphone. There are DJs working for Live Music Management that would feel very comfortable playing a wedding with a music brief of 1950s through to 1970s and there are mobile DJs who specialise in music from the past decade.
When entering into the specialist areas of dance music or dub step then the strengths become even more apparent. At a recent twenty first birthday party Live Music Management were asked to supply a DJ that could play something for everyone but also at least an hour of dub step. It turned out that the younger guests were all experts in the field of dub step music. Luckily we had a DJ on hand tha knew the records they were requesting and who could play to this demanding audience. Likewise when Live Music Management supply DJs to the Rewind Bars where the DJ needs to play music from the 70s through to late 90s and early 00′s. The music style is cheesy pop and although on the face if it this is an easy brief it soon becomes apparent when a DJ that can’t work within this brief is placed in these venues.Luckily this doesn’t happen except on our audition nights!
In conclusion if you are looking for a mobile DJ for an event be certain to have a clear idea of what music you would like to have played. Speak to a reputable DJ agency like Live Music Management who will have a range of options. The hotel venue may not have much choice and speaking to an individual DJ may be misleading as they are almost certain to convince you that they are up to the job. Live Music Managements entertainment advice is free and you can speak to our team about DJs on 08454 900515 between the hours of 10am and 6pm.
