DJ CHECKLIST: CHOOSING A GOOD DEEJAY
At DJ Guy, we encourage our clients to be informed. Make sure you adhere to this DJ checklist when shopping around for a DJ service. We ALWAYS guarantee quality, professional and personalized service.
Successful events are not the result of good luck, but more the result of good planning. Every function has unique style and character, and rightfully so. While one client might prefer lively dance music with a very interactive DJ, another might choose a slower more relaxed mix of music with no DJ involvement. This is why at DJ Guy we will meet personally with each and every client at our studio to determine music tastes and all scheduled formalities. You are welcome to schedule an evening interview for your convenience following the workday.
QUALITY DOES MATTER
The quality of equipment used for special events has a direct impact on the success of the day as well as the willingness of people to dance and ability to hear announcements. Small, tinny sounding speakers that cannot deliver high quality sound for toasts, introductions and announcements will cause the crowd to lose interest. Always ask to hear the same sound system that will be provided at your event and beware if the answer comes back negative. For truly superior sound with crisp highs. tight midrange and bass, DJ Guy uses the finest QSC and Line-Array professional grade speakers that money can buy. This ensures an enjoyable volume level for all guests throughout the event’s entirety.
Our DJs are trained to periodically check on sound comfort levels from the client as well as all guests. This ensures an enjoyable volume level for all guests throughout the event’s entirety.
Accidents are rare, but do happen. One million dollars of liability coverage is reasonable and offers peace-of-mind and protection against the unforeseen. Ask all DJ Services you interview if they are covered!
EXTENSIVE MUSIC LIBRARY
You’ll need an extensive selection of music suitable to all age groups and tastes. DJ services may boast massive music collections, but “seeing is believing.” DJ Guy has more than 2 million selections available, ranging from Oldies to the latest Top 40s. You can browse our sample music library by clicking here. We are so confident of our extensive collection that we make it a practice to take requests.
FUN, EXPERT, WELL-DRESSED DJs
Our DJs dress to your specifications, whether that be in formal or theme attire. DJ Guy trains all DJs to be flexible in all events; be it in their dress, guest requests and input and music selection. DJ Guy DJs have extensive training in working with the crowd, as well as changing client needs to ensure the success of the event.
NO HIDDEN COSTS
Companies with complicated pricing plans or extra add-ons should be reviewed with caution. Charges for system set-up, microphones, speakers, or a light show are just some examples. All clients receive the same high quality equipment and services at the same competitive price. A customer should be able to depend on the DJ service to provide everything required for an awesome evening of fun and dance with their guests for one simple charge. At DJ Guy no such hidden costs or charges exist.
FULL-TIME DJ OFFICE
Be sure your DJ Service can be contacted for questions or an interview. Part time DJ companies do not have the stability to always guarantee their services. DJ Guy is a full-time DJ service, has been in business for over 30 years, and we’ll be there when you need us.
Referrals are a positive sign, but the best come from other industry professionals. They get to see and compare many DJs on an equivalent basis. If you think about it, even the most part time DJ can find a few referrals from their history, so ask for a few professional referrals too! You can read our reviews on Google and Facebook, too.
VISIT THE MUSIC STUDIO
The most important point has been saved for last. SEE and HEAR the DIFFERENCE in person at our studio. It will provide tangible proof of our commitment to the needs of your special event, and allow you to “Try before you buy.” Ask other DJ companies for the same commitment and proof of their quality.
PLAN YOUR WEDDING WITH DJ GUY!
We had an incredible experience with our DJ. He completely organized our event and picked up where other vendors were slacking. Absolutely everything he did was seamless. He went above and beyond. The second the dance floor opened, there was not a moment people were not dancing. And best of all … NO CHICKEN DANCE!
These guys … every time I meet with them, I am blown away! From working close with them during wedding prep to hoisting the holiday party for my company last night, they have been nothing but professional and kind! Quinton KILLED the DJ last night! Worked very well with our little events throughout the night and even got some shy people out on the floor! So incredibly happy I got to work with him! Thank you!!
We could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding! Payton was quick to help assist with last minute logistical changes due to weather, executed our ceremony music perfectly and kept the dance floor lively all night. The Halo Booth is an absolute MUST – the photos are so funny and truly captured the essence of our special day. The DJ booth setup is clean, minimal and very professional looking. Perfect for any setting. They even brought a disco ball which worked great for our outdoor reception once the sun went down. All in all, we have nothing but great things to say and have received rave reviews from all of our wedding guests. Highly recommend! 10/10!!!
We had such a great experience with DJ Guy!!
Through our consultations with Payton, we felt really great in selecting their team for our wedding and he did such a great job in explaining everything and their processes. He made us feel super comfortable and we really enjoyed meeting with him. The price was their services was great for our budget, and the service provided was incredible.
Jordan (our DJ) was OFF THE HOOK!! To start, he looked so put together and ready for the day which was great. To kick off the reception, he even said a few words!! And it was absolutely welcomed … he was not an “excessive talker” which we did not want for our wedding day. Instead he said some really lovely and welcoming words to us and to our guests – even our guests made comments about how great he was! He could read the room really well and was playing all the jams. Our crowd had so much fun, and SO many people came up to my husband and I saying how great our DJ was! This vendor was an important one for us, and he just absolutely crushed it!!!
Payton from DJ Guy was absolutely amazing at our wedding! He was easy to work with and we knew immediately upon meeting him that he was the DJ for us. DJ guy was affordable, reputable and absolutely made our wedding a hit. Payton played great music all night and kept the party hopping. The dance floor was full all night. The halo photo booth set-up was a hit as well and our guests had a blast with it. Thank you Payton and DJ guy for a truly special night!
DJ Guy was an absolute pleasure to work with during our wedding. The whole planning and payment process was simple, user friendly, and the staff was very professional and friendly. We were able to book them with a photo-booth package, and everyone loved the photo-booth! You get a copy of all the guests photos to print off yourself if you want to.
At the event, the DJ played all the songs and type of songs we requested, so the dance floor was never once cleared. Our guests loved the music and the enthusiasm the DJ had. One guest even commented on how our DJ was the most fun and exciting DJ she’s ever seen!
Would definitely recommend these guys and use them again in the future!
DJ guy was such a pleasure to work with! The website allowed for us to choose what songs we wanted and did not want! I was so impressed at how thorough and professional they are. We had a final call before the big day to go over everything and were even more impressed with the questions they asked us! On the big day the DJ (Kevin – amazing!) kept us on a timeline but always made sure we were ready for first dances and the cake cutting. I was so impressed at how organized he was that day and he made sure we weren’t stressed or overwhelmed. I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you again for everything DJ Guy!
