5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a DJ For Your Events


Music is known to influence the mood and state of mind of its listeners. It is therefore no surprise that the life of any social gathering (irrespective of its nature) is in the quality of music played. To set the right tone for any event, the right kind of music has to be selected and played to match the anticipated mood of the participants. Seems easy enough to take charge of the music at your birthday party/wedding reception and totally nail it right? Wrong! If you want your event to leave a lasting impression on the minds of those present, take note of these 5 reasons why you should hire a DJ for your events.

1. The songs need to match the occasion

Every event (be it a birthday party, wedding reception or an awards ceremony) is unique and as such should have specific genres of music peculiar to it. Ever had a relative play ‘Davido’s Skelewu’ at your grandmother’s funeral? I certainly hope not. Better to hire a person qualified to select the right kind of music to suit the ambiance of your events.

2. What are the top trending songs of today?

Wouldn’t you want to have your guests dancing to all the latest jams at your birthday bash? Of course you do! How about when your family and friends are in the mood for a blast from the past with some classics? Professional DJs pride themselves in their large collections of music spanning across many eras. Hire a professional DJ and stay up to date and down memory lane all in the same moment.

3. Do you have the right equipment and technical know-how?

Do you have a CD turn table that offers a pitch range of +/-8% – 16% with a 7” inch spindle adapter and power output of about 240V/ 110V? Is your software the latest version of Virtual DJ? Can you determine how much reverb, equalization and compression that needs to be added/reduced on your mixer to get the right feel of sound produced? I bet you have no idea what any of those terms mean.  Well guess a professional DJ does!!!

 4. Wouldn’t you want to be a part of the party?

Of course you do! Yes you’re the host and you definitely have to see to it that the needs of your guests are met, but no one says you’re not allowed to enjoy the party. Hire a DJ and give yourself room to flex.

5. DJ please don’t stop the music!!!

Nothing kills the vibe of a party like the awkward seconds witnessed when the music abruptly comes to a halt. Or even when the previous song played doesn’t blend with the next song. A DJ understands how the songs in a mix relate to each other when it comes to tempo, musical key, rhythm and genre. Hire a professional DJ to keep the vibe continuous and consistent.

If everyone could do it without breaking a sweat, there wouldn’t be professional DJs around. Don’t get tempted into trying to manage all the aspects of creating a sonically memorable event. Why not hire a person that has the tools, creativity and experience to provide guests with the satisfaction of having attended an awesome party.
