Wedding DJ Research & Interview

We are preparing to meet with a potential DJ tonight, exciting! Hopefully, we click and the Mr. and I can cross another thing off of the checklist.  I’ve done some research looking up reviews for a bunch of local DJs on gigmasters and Weddingbee, which I highly recommend.  I have also seen a ton of lists of questions as I have researched to ask your potential DJ when you meet up with him/her for the first time…so I have sort of compiled what I think is a list that makes the most sense:

1. Do you offer a written contract?
2. How long will you hold our date for us until we decide?
3. How long have you been a DJ and how many weddings have you done?
4. How many weddings do you do each year?
5. How many other types of events do you do per year?
6. Will it just be you or will you bring along an assistant?
7. Do you perform for more than one event in a day?
8. What makes you different from your competitors?
9. Have you played at our reception site before?
10. Are you able to “emcee”, and how would you define your style?
11. What do you do to motivate the crowd if nobody is dancing?
12. What if something happens to you and you can’t make it to the wedding?
13. Can we visit you at a performance?
14. How involved can we be in selecting music for our event?
15. When do we need to submit our music requests and event details?
16. Do you take requests from our guests?
17. Can we submit a “Do Not Play” list?
18. When do you arrive to set up for our wedding?
19. What will you wear to our wedding?
20. What do you require from us?
21. Do you take any breaks?
22. Do you bring backup equipment with you to the wedding?
23. Do you have a wireless microphone?
24. Do you set up a sign or banner with your equipment?
25. How do you prepare for a wedding?

Hopefully this helps you scope out your potential DJ so, that you feel comfortable with them setting the tone for your BIG day.
