If you want to hire a mobile DJ in Herts the two most important things you need to be assured of are the DJs reliability and level of professionalism. Almost all the last minute calls for help we receive are because an amateur DJ with a couldn't care less attitude had been originally been booked to play at a party and not turned up.
Unreliable, amateur DJs are the main reason why some people view mobile DJs as unprofessional. Many new DJs scraped together a basic disco system, play at a few friends parties but find the DJs life in the real world is far more difficult. Some less established DJs will assure you they are reliable and professional but on the night loose their nerve or find something better to do.
When you are planning a party its best to be realistic and work out a sensible budget. A Mobile disco using quality equipment and a professional party DJ with many years experience will be a little bit more expensive that a unreliable armature, but not by that much.
Its a fact that most people would expect to pay many hundreds of pounds for a wedding photographer yet want to pay considerable less for the wedding DJ. However a good wedding DJ will work more hours and have equipment costing many times that of the photographer. The reason why there are more DJs in the world than wedding photographers is because its fun, so you need to choose a DJ that doesn't get carried away with it and remains focused on the fact its your party and that you and your guests must enjoy yourselves.
The amateur approach by some DJs mean that some people make the mistake of providing their DJ with a 100% play list and insisting this will guarantee a great party night. If you are phoning round and the DJ insists you provide a long playlist then this is a warning that they do not have much party experience. A good DJ will be able to look at the age range as well as notice who is dancing to what and work out the best tunes for everybody. Every party is unique and the energy comes from the individuals attending if the DJ selects the most appropriate music for the occasion and those attending it will be a great party. The sight of gran and grandad jiving to an obscure tune from the 1950s or dad disco dancing to Saturday night fever will make lifetime memories. Short request list are great but the bulk should be received on the night. That way the DJ can note who asked for what and make sure they are in the room when the track is played.
