Yes, a wedding event DJ can truly make or break a wedding party– which is why this is one of the most crucial decisions a couple can make when planning their wedding.
” A terrific wedding DJ is not only extremely skilled, but thoughtful, passionate, a great listener and diligent as to the requirements of the couple getting married, which is what it’s all about.” So says Johnny Budz, CEO of Elite Sound Entertainment of Saddle Brook, N.J., among the Northeast’s many highly-reviewed NJ wedding event DJ companies and himself an in-demand wedding DJ. “It’s all quite obvious, however for some factor with many wedding event DJs, it’s not. And because of that, they simply do not do the job and the wedding is a disaster.”
8 examples of what your wedding DJ MUST be:
1– EXCELLENT DJs Listen!

And they take the obligation seriously, ALWAYS putting the needs of the couple first.
2– GREAT DJs Pronounce The Names Right!
Professional DJs and Master’s of Ceremonies take the responsibility of your formal announcements very seriously. They check with the bride and groom to make certain EVERY name in the wedding party is pronounced correctly. They practice this ahead of time and review it with the couple in the weeks ahead of time to make sure it’s perfect. Absolutely nothing is less than professional than a DJ or MC mispronouncing someone’s name incorrect in the wedding party.
3– FANTASTIC DJs Play YOUR Asked for Music, and read the crowd … The ideal combination!
If your wedding DJ is an expert, he or she knows that having the Bride and Groom’s preferred tune(s) is paramount. Just as crucial is having a DJ that knows ways to read a crowd and play to that crowd. If he or she doesn’t, the occasion might be a catastrophe. It’s a mix of preparation and experience, something that lots of DJs merely don’t do, astonishingly enough.

6– FANTASTIC DJs Evaluate Whatever Ahead Of Time!
Fantastic DJs get to the venue at least a couple of hours prior to the start of the event to unload equipment and set-up sound systems and thoroughly test all equipment, which has been thoroughly evaluated prior to his arrival. Great DJs check microphones, adjust sound levels, and position speakers to take advantage of the room’s acoustics. Every location has its own unique acoustics, and a great DJ knows the best ways to maximize this. If outdoors, terrific DJs change the sound inning accordance with design, weather condition, etc
And a terrific DJ ALWAYS has a backup system prepared to go in case of equipment failure.
