Most people plan a party once in a blue moon and are not really sure which mobile disco to hire. These points may help you find the right DJ service for your special occasion.
Think hard about booking a friend as the DJ on the cheap.
Most of the emergency calls we get are because the friend
has decided to do something else. If your friend is a good DJ then they should be booked to play at a different party. Its best to let your friends
come to your party and hire a DJ who will treat the evening
as a job of work they want to do well rather than a cheap night out.
Always find out how long it will take a DJ to set up and pack away. Some venues will charge extra if
everyone, including the DJ is not out by the agreed time.
For the average disco set up pro mobile disco will take
about 1-2 hours to set up and about 45mins to 1 and half
hours to pack up. If time is is an issue its best to advise
your DJ in order to speed things up.
Avoid hiring a mobile disco that will accept more than
one booking per night per DJ or you will
be sharing resources with someone else - we only accept
one booking per night.
If you want a reliable disco, find out whether the DJ is
full-time, ask about their experience. Avoid DJ's
who do it just for fun, and want to have a night out. If you
book one of these don't be surprised if the DJ brings
a loads of his friends to your party.
Check that your DJ supplier is happy to
play any special requested music you may have. However don't
over do it, 100% play lists
do not work unless is a teenage prom party. Send your DJ a list of around the 10 to 30 pre requested
tunes which is about right.
Check and recheck your DJ has the extra special requests
you have such as your wedding first dance record. Even better
bring your own copy just in case, making sure its on a format
the DJ can play.
For some occasions it may be useful to know the age of
your DJ i.e. an 18 year old with minimum experience would
not be appropriate for a 50th Wedding anniversary.
More hints on Party DJ hire
Be prepared to send a bit more on a quality Mobile disco,
its a fact the vast majority of people will only remember
the entertainment after the event. Spending a fortune on
the food or the finest wines will be nice at the time, but
soon forgotten. Most brides one month after their wedding
wished they had spent more on the entertainment.
Always ensure that you have confirmation in writing from your
DJ supplier confirming their services. Check the details on
the confirmation letter are correct i.e. dates, time, place
and its essential you include postcodes. Most DJs traveling
a long way will use sat nav so also make sure the postcode
takes you to the right address. You do not want the DJ to
turn up on the wrong day to the wrong place.
Check with your venue beforehand regarding any restrictions
they may have, i.e.: the presence of a noise limiter or
if you want the DJ to use a smoke machine; will this set
off the smoke detector.
