Often times on outside perspective can provide a clear picture of what not to do when DJing a wedding. When John Young of Disc Jockey News attended a friends wedding last year he got just that.
As a Mobile DJ the cornerstone of your business is almost always Weddings/receptions. They typically pay the most (providing you’re at least charging the average rate) and offer the most potential for package up-sell. Do it right, and you’ll receive referrals – and as any seasoned Mobile DJ knows, there’s nothing better than word of mouth. Build your clients trust and ensure party-goers enjoy the show, and one wedding can easily turn into 4 more.
In the impromptu video below (John was in his garage prepping for a DJ gig when he setup the camera and shot the video) John Young of Disc Jockey News offers 5 tips for DJing a Wedding. From making sure your spotlight dances (father/daughter dance etc) are coordinated properly, to keeping a level head and playing popular song clean edits instead of explicit versions. It’s a great watch for new Mobile DJs looking to break into the wedding business so you don’t make the same mistakes the DJ did at the reception John attended.
