Are you planning on hiring a DJ for your event? Is it a great idea? Definitely! Music spells entertainment. Entertainment (or the lack of it) makes or breaks a Party or Wedding. Music that is too drab or too heavy might not be apt for every occasion. Here comes a DJ, who has the knowledge, experience, and expertise to assess the mood of the event, and play the songs and tunes suitable for your guests.
Think with care – who would you actually rely on handling the entertainment – be it a Wedding or any other Party?! Someone who’s a DJ as a hobby, a friend of a friend with an iPod or a professional DJ with the complete package of skill-set and equipment? The right decision will seal the oomph factor of your special occasion.
Weddings & Parties along with other events need a skilled, experienced DJ, to interact with the crowd, assess their musical preference and play the right music accordingly, and thereby keeping your guests entertained. A wedding & party DJ hire in Perth is one of the most popular entertainment services on offer in the city.
WHY IS HIRING AN AMATEUR DJ A BAD IDEA?
Do you think that hiring an amateur DJ will make your event successful? If yes, then you are mistaken:
Lack of Professionalism:
Upon hiring an amateur DJ, there are chances that they might not be as serious about the event as you would want them to be, mostly because they have nothing to lose.
A professional DJ, on the other hand, has his/her whole reputation at stake, so it is obvious that they will be investing more than 100% for the job.
Lack of Skillset:
The job of a DJ does not stop at playing music; the DJ must also coordinate timelines, orchestrate and organize the flow of events, manage and interact with the crowd, along with
many other jobs. An inexperienced DJ might not have the skill to handle all these aspects, and the results can be disastrous. On the other hand, an experienced and skilled DJ will have the experience to back them up as they know how to deal with many such situations and improvise for the best outcome.
Drop in Momentum:
Reading the crowd and playing the correct song at the correct time is crucial for keeping the party alive. Often, the mood of the party may change, the DJ must have the skills to understand the mood shift and play the relevant songs and tunes.
Without experience and training, this will be impossible. So, your amateur DJ might end up playing the same song numerous times or even play a heavy tune, when the mood of the event is a bit more romantic or mellow.
Poor MC with Inferior Quality Equipment:
You might feel that you are saving money by hiring an amateur, and expect a successful event too. Well, the truth is that you are mapping out a plan for a disaster.
The chances are that an amateur DJ will lack proper equipment or use sub-grade equipment, which means that you will have inferior sound quality and performance at the event.
Moreover, he/she might not agree to be the Master of Ceremonies (MC), costing you extra money for hiring an MC, separately. Even if the DJ does agree to be the MC, there is a high probability that he/she ends up doing an amateurish job, spoiling the mood of the entire event.
CAN HIRING AN AMATEUR DJ HAVE DISASTROUS IMPACT ON YOUR EVENT?
Would you rather have a DJ, who is not a 100% invested in his job and save a few bucks; or hire the DJ who gives you his/her 110% and have a successful event?
If you are willing to hand over the fate of your event to a person who is not serious or qualified for the job, then you must be prepared for a disastrous outcome, like a bad sound system, a poor MC, spoiling the mood of the party, and so much more. If you want to avoid a disastrous end to all your hard work, then it is best that you drop the idea of hiring an amateur and get the services of a professional DJ.
