DJ in Melbourne – Choosing the Best Wedding DJ

There are a good number of entertainers and wedding DJs out there and what is the likelihood that one would be able to choose the best one? What should exactly must one know in selecting one? What are the spot on qualities that make a prospect stand out among the multitude?

Here are a few things to practically pluck out the “one:”

  • Admit to one’s self; it is better that a professional do it

Don’t take it personally but DJing is not a skill for everyone as it goes beyond playing tunes it entails timing, proper song choices, alertness, adrenaline, optimism, good interpersonal skills, among others.

  • Searching is not limited to friends or family members

It may be that someone close is good in mixing sounds, fading in and out but to avoid overfamiliarity and sacrificing professionalism, look elsewhere.

  • Dig in onto the Entertainment Directory

No idea where to look for one? Find an online directory that catalogues the best professional DJ in town. 

  • Do not just rely on reviews

Visit; invite for an interview the DJs one would like to work with. Ask friends who previously married what the go-to pages on Facebook or other online wedding forums that give tips on where to find the best Wedding DJ in Melbourne.

  • Trust one’s gut feel

If it does not sink in and if something seems off, it will mean that one would not be comfortable with the choice in the actual event so scour up more options.

  • Highlight fine qualities

Use spare time but also ask for permission if one ought to watch a DJ play in a certain event. Try to see if he is rude or polite, energetic or lethargic, compassionate and tactful in turning down songs that might kill the playlist, on time and exude professionalism.

  • Check only on the ‘good DJs”.
