Event DJ Hire
If you’ve ever had to organise events you’ll know that they can be extremely stressful and require you to be an expert across many different areas.
If your event involves music and DJ hire, it may be tempting to go with the easiest solution. For example, venues may offer their in-house DJ to oversee the sound as part of a package when you hire the facilities.
We have worked at a number of events where the organiser has elected to hire the venue’s own DJ to provide the sound. It can be quite frustrating sometimes when you announce the name of a winner and they walk up to the sounds of “Simply The Best” by Tina Turner. Even more so when the same piece of music is used 13 times in a row (how can this person be “simply the best and better than all the rest” if the other dozen were too?!).
Sometimes the DJ will just play the song from the start so the relevant words in the chorus for example, aren’t even heard.
With a little thought and planning from the DJ, it needn’t be this way which is why it may be worth searching just a little further to chose who will provide the music and sound duties for your event.
For the Southampton Airport “Breeze Through” awards for example, I sit down with the event planner in advance and compile a list of appropriate songs for each winner to walk up to – something relevant to the award they’ve won or the reason why they’ve won it. The carefully selected songs are then edited so that the relevant part of that track is playing when they collect their award and we make sure the winners feel special by providing appropriate lighting to add to the moment as they walk from their seat.
So if you’re organising an event, rather than leave it to the venue to sort out the DJ hire, perhaps you might like to speak to us and trust that experts are looking after your requirements.
