Your event is obviously important to you and those around you. Your’ve been cautious in planning the event around dates and potential conflicts. You’ve got the flowers, the venue, the photographer and you’ve taken painstaking detail to make sure the event reflects all things important to you and your event. Now who do you hire for entertainment?
There are entertainment choices from acoustic musicians, orchestra, live bands, comedians, and much more. More often then not you will be choosing between one of MANY local mobile entertainment companies to provide Disc Jockey services. In reality it’s a very wise choice as most dj’s are able to play music from a very large area, don’t take breaks, and in many cases are very talented emcees as well.
If you do indeed want to choose a dj for your event, where do you start? At last look (according to Google) there are no fewer than 30 yes THIRTY dj’s here in the greater Sioux Falls area. How in the world do you narrow your decision? Everyone is AWESOME. Everyone has a HUGE music library. EVERYONE is going to tell you that they are you’re best bet. I realize in this day and age, and by the intended sarcastic tone, that things aren’t always as they seem.
What’s the answer? Do some homework! Talk to other event professionals about who they recommend and what service providers they respect. What about price? I know some dj’s in the local market that average a $1500 or more for their services and some for $500. What’s the difference? PLENTY! True professionals charge what professionals charge and they do so for good reason. Some dj’s are overpriced at the lower end of the spectrum. Professionals attend conferences, educational seminars, emcee workshops to hone their craft and deserve the rates they earn.
Think about this when you are looking for entertainment for your next event. What is it worth to have a great entertainer at your event? What is entertainment “Worth”? What’s it worth if they do a great job and do everything goes great? What’s it worth if they are late? What’s it worth if they dont show up at all? You’ve spent all this time, energy, and money to make this event COUNT! If your guests don’t stay around to enjoy the evening because of a lackluster entertainment choice, or one who’s MIA, it’s all for naught.
Cheap entertainment is seldom great. Great entertainment is seldom cheap.
This weekend we were chosen to work with an awesome teen who was turning 16 and wanted to throw an amazing party! We talked about a budget and about making it something as special to her as she is to her father! We were able to mix a solid set of nothing but top 40 and with an estimated 400 people rocking out, we were more than happy to hand out business cards all night!
We’ve heard nothing but great compliments and are looking forward to working with some of those in attendance on their parties as well. We would also love to have some referrals to the school districts in the area to bring our party style to those schools and hopefully boost the attendance at their dances as well! If you’re looking for excellent teen dance for your prom, formal, or sweet 16 we would welcome the call and show you what we can do for you and your next big party! From the hottest music videos, to the best sound and light systems around, we’ll be there to make it something very very special! Look into the best entertainment today!
