How many parties, receptions and events have you attended that went flat after thirty minutes? I am sure you have experienced this first hand. Why use a professional DJ? This article discusses the major reasons to hire StreaminsoundsDJ.com for you next occasion.
1. A professional DJ can read the crowd.
A professional wedding DJ has the experience and training necessary to read the crowd at your Tennessee wedding reception. This means that he or she can pick and choose the genre and tempo of music played to either excite or calm your wedding guests, all at the most appropriate moments. This makes for a consistently upbeat feel at your reception, giving guests the impression that the evening never hits a lull. Rather, they’ll be constantly guessing at what’s around the corner next. A professional DJ will know when to take requests, how to weave interactive elements throughout the evening flawlessly, and will realize the importance of “playing to the crowd” by either keeping them on their toes or stimulating a relaxing, conversational feel to the evening.
2. He or she will know the top music.
Not only does this give the professional DJ an edge when guests walk up with requests (sometimes without knowing the song titles!), but it also lets him or her know what songs will be best to play – and when. This includes during the various stages of your reception, such as cocktail hour, dinner, and even the dance portion of the evening. The professional will know not only when to play what, but he or she also will be practiced at transitioning the evening in such a way that guests hardly know a shift has happened in events!
3. As Master of Ceremonies, you’ll get professional announcements.
This is a big deal for any wedding reception, for multiple reasons. Since a hired professional will not have any personal attachment to you , he or she will be tactful and completely outside of any family drama or issues that may go on around your wedding. This gives you an expertly directed wedding reception that never calls attention to “touchy” subjects or relationships. It also saves you from a long slew of potentially embarrassing stories being told by a family member or friend as your introduction to the party, when all you want to do is dance!
4. A professional DJ can help you plan the order of events for the best flow in your reception timeline.
So much about guests’ interest in your wedding reception hinges on your timeline. Are things moving too quickly? Too slowly? A professional will be able to help you optimize your timeline for the best and most comfortable flow for your guests, from the entrance and first dance to your grand exit.
A professional will be able to adapt quickly to necessary changes in your timeline when the unexpected occurs too, like late guests or even a late bridal party. The professional DJ will be able to adapt to those changes with poise, while still keeping everything at a comfortable pace for guests so they hardly know the timeline ever got a little off-track.
