TIPS & ADVICE ON BOOKING A PARTY DJ

A party really isn’t a party without music. There really is no better way to create precious memories and have fun than letting loose and dancing the night away with your friends. In fact, the therapeutic qualities of dancing have been well researched, and it’s understood that moving to music releases all kinds of happy chemicals in the body, allowing us to relax and feel good.

A Party DJ is the perfect act to cater to the varied tastes of your guests, as they are experienced in judging each individual audience. They have a sixth sense, seeming to know exactly what tracks to play, to bring out the dancer in everyone. They also have the right audio and lighting equipment, to ensure that the music sounds great and you can enjoy a genuine party atmosphere.

Perhaps you’re planning an event where guests don’t know each other. A professional DJ is skilled at breaking the ice, making everybody feel comfortable, and enticing people to take their first steps onto the dancefloor - and once they start to move, there’ll be no stopping them!

Whether you’re planning a birthday party, social club night, drinks reception, office celebration, hen do, bar mitzvah or community event, this is a great choice. So, get that glitter ball spinning and take a look at our brilliant DJs for parties. They’ve got the tunes and the know-how to make your party sparkle and shine.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PARTY DJ FOR YOUR EVENT

The main consideration when choosing a DJ is the type of music you and your guests enjoy. Most Party DJs can cater to a wide range of tastes, adapting their playlists to suit each occasion, appealing to all of your guests and keeping the dance floor full. Generally, they will play a mix of current chart hits, disco, Motown and party classics. If you have a very specific genre in mind, such as club anthems, rock ‘n’ roll or swing music, it would be a good idea to look for a DJ that specialises in your music style.

Another thing to think about is how much talking and audience interaction you want. Some DJs focus on playing music and talk very little or not at all. Others specialise in chatting to the audience, making announcements and even hosting party games. Whichever style will suit your party, you just need to state your preference when booking and make sure that your DJ is happy and comfortable with the type of entertainment you want.

To ensure you’re getting a quality DJ that’s going to deliver great entertainment for you, read the testimonials on our Party DJ profiles, where you can also see each DJ’s level of experience. If they have played at lots of events similar to yours, that’s a good indication that they’ll be right for you.

HOW MUCH WILL A PARTY DJ COST?

Hiring a Party DJ is a great option if you have a limited budget, as they are generally cheaper than booking a live band. That said, the price will vary depending on their level of experience, how far they have to travel to your venue, the number of guests at your party, the quality of their equipment and the size of their music collection.

You can pay anything from £300 ($300 in the U.S. and 400€ in Europe) for a local party DJ to £1000+ for a high profile DJ with the best equipment and lighting. Typically, a good, professional DJ will cost between £400 and £600 ($600 in the U.S. and 700€ in Europe). If your chosen DJ has musicians or singers included in their act, or you’re booking at high-demand times such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve, you can expect to pay more.

We believe it’s worth paying for a reputable DJ who will deliver great entertainment at your party. They will be the focal point of your event, so quality is key. A good Party DJ will not only play the right music but they will also provide high quality sound and lighting. You need a decent PA system that can bring out the bass without needing to be too loud, or causing distortion. They can provide mood lighting as guests arrive and then use colourful disco lights as the party gets into full swing. Hiring a professional will make for a truly successful party experience.
