Hiring a wedding DJ is much more than trying find the cheapest possible deal.
We chatted to Darryn McGary from Wedding DJ NI, we asked him his top 3 questions you need to ask before booking your evening entertainment supplier.
Do You Have Music To Suit All Ages?
A good DJ will be able to read a crowd and blend different musical styles together. It is always a good idea to discuss what music you want to hear.
Be aware that a DJ who plays only the latest chart-topping tunes might be enjoyed by a younger crowd but it may mean older people leave early. If you’re looking for a DJ who can mix well ask him or her for a demo CD of their own mixes.
Darryn shared how his passion for music started from a young age; ‘I have collected music a full library of music, in formats including cassette, vinyl, Cd and now the ever more popular digital MP3 & Wav. This has allowed me over the years to accumulate an impressive music catalogue that is updated weekly to accommodate even the most unique of requests.’
What Makes You Different To Other DJ’s Out There?
When you book Darryn with Wedding DJ NI you can also include anything from just great music to dance the night away, to optional entertaining party games, karaoke and wedding quiz.
You can even add an elegant white LED dance floor or fun photo booth. Times can also be adapted to suit with ceremony music starting from the moment you walk down the aisle to the final song of the evening. You can also add optional extras such as party games including the infamous Mr & Mrs, karaoke, and our lip sync battle where your guests perform for you dressed up as well known pop stars.
Are You Happy To Take Requests?
A few DJ’s out there don’t enjoy requests from guests, they prefer to stick to their own playlist. Darryn offers a bespoke service, others out there don’t – producing playlists curated by you and your guests.
‘Each booking receives access to my online playlist builder giving me an insight into your individual music taste that may otherwise get ignored by your average wedding DJ. I then take your playlist, as well as guest requests and my own selections and build a truly personal soundtrack to your special day. All playlists are discussed beforehand and carefully tailored to ensure all guests will not only enjoy your wedding reception but will remember it forever.’
