What should you know about hiring DJs in DC
The DC DJ is usually the first to arrive and the last to leave.
Lots of times, the DJ is the last to be booked for an event, but most times, they are the most remembered and arguably, the most important. Why would I say DJ’s are arguably the most important part of an event? All they do is play music right? Try to imagine going to a party where the guests come together to celebrate or have fun, but there’s no music. That event wouldn’t last too long and people would eventually get board. Even for guests that don’t particularly dance much, they still enjoy music. Here’s what you should know about hiring DJ’s in DC.
The DJ has lots of responsibilities, but some more than others depending on what they’re hired to do. Some of these responsibilities include:
Setting up lots of equipment • Playing the right music • Engaging the crowd • MC service/Announcements • Site Views • Providing Timelines and questionnaires • Providing music suggestions • Loading and unloading heavy equipment • Taking requests

When looking for particular DJs in DC, the client should be confident about the DJ they choose to work with. They should have some kind of solid evidence that makes them feel completely comfortable. The DJ has to be aware at all times in making sure the music sounds as great as possible while also making sure the order of events flows as smooth as possible. Depending on the event, if the client hires an event planner, the DJ and event planner will work hand in hand to keep the event flowing smoothly according to the timeline, if there is one.
Things you should pay attention to and questions you should ask your DJ:
_Kind of equipment
_How much experience: # of years, # of events
_Photos of work
_Insurance if needed
