Tips on How to Find A Good Wedding DJ | DJing.ca Vancouver DJ

When it comes to hiring a Wedding DJ, people think the best and versatile entertainer can make a difference with such a great deal of energy and excitement to the events. Not surprisingly, there are some couples who don’t know what questions to ask when hiring a DJ.

DJing.ca’s team will discuss the most important considerations before hiring a DJ. We know several different types of DJ services offered in Vancouver however,  here are the tips on how to find the best wedding DJ. You will start on your way to hiring the perfect DJ right here!

DJ’s Classified in Two Major Categories

  1. Private Event DJs – Our team mentioned in our previous blog entitled “Event DJ Vs Artist: What’s The Difference?” that the most important considerations before hiring a DJ are to classify them into the category. This way, you may know them better as wedding DJs, private party DJs, corporate party DJs, and many other names similar to this. In addition, the purpose of this is to scale the ability of the DJ to play what the client has requested in the form of a tracklist sent to the DJ prior to the event. 

    In this first category, you discover that the private events DJs will cater to private parties and one of them is a wedding event. Part of the service is song requests, you can ask the DJ to play a song right then and there.
  1. Performing Artist DJs – These DJs are not the same services as the above categories. For those that are not familiar with the DJ category, this DJ’s maybe more interesting! These DJs are more likely the same skills as Private Event DJs and are more than capable of playing those events because of the factor from which I derived their name “performing artist” they spend countless hours in the studio creating their own music. They produce this music with the intent of playing it live and these genres are far more popular in a nightclub than at a wedding.

To wrap up the difference between these two categories is that these DJs will often grow into large solo acts, creating their own production filled with choreographed lighting, visuals, and more!   

So, how to find the Best Wedding DJ?

As far as our company is concerned, if you like to hire a DJ you should set your objectives and make sure that you have a DJ checklist for your guidance. The goal of this guide is for you to get a great DJ. Find an expert and more experienced DJs to help you! At DJing.ca we have 3 listed qualities that should a DJ have that we’d like to share with you.

  1. Your DJ must be reliable – The DJ shows up two hours early the day itself of your wedding. By doing this the DJ has enough time to set up everything needed in the event. In addition,  DJs are also great MCs.  When these two skills complement each other your DJ is reliable.
  2. Your DJ must be professional – It means the DJ will be far more adaptable to any request that the client may have. Professionalism is one of the most favorite words that people use when it comes to business terms especially in the corporate world. The DJ shows professionalism in dress code that is consistent, uses professional language and grammar, and should have high-quality equipment, etc.
  3. Your DJ must be friendly and easy going – This aspect is more important than the two first mentioned above. Djing.ca Vancouver DJ will take care of everything. We’ll make sure that absolutely nothing is overlooked and handle everything professionally.

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
