What is a Vancouver DJ event?

When people think about a DJ, they often think about someone who interjects occasional comments like “Is everybody having a good time?” or plays songs that you request. While this may happen at an event with a DJ, it is not what the role of a DJ is – it is something that anyone can do. A true professional will use the music as a way to influence the audience and keep people entertained throughout the night. The most important role of a DJ isn’t to keep people dancing, although that is a good measure of success. Rather, the most important role of a DJ is to keep the party organized and on track.

Why should you hire a DJ for your event?

There are a few reasons why you want to consider a DJ for your event. The most important reason is that it keeps everything organized and on time. When guests arrive, a DJ can direct them to the bar or direct them to find their seats if there is a wedding. If there is a reception, the DJ can make announcements about when to do the father-daughter dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss, and many other events that are unique to weddings. More importantly, you don’t want your friends looking around while the band is playing, trying to figure out what they’re supposed to do. The DJ can step in and make sure that everyone knows when to do the chicken dance and when to sit down for the next song.

You also want someone who is going to keep the event organized so that everything runs smoothly. For example, if the bride goes running out of the room in tears, the master of ceremonies can make an announcement asking people to head over to the hall where she can decompress for a moment. Additionally, you want someone to keep track of the timeline so that the bouquet toss or garter belt doesn’t happen too early, and everyone gets to participate.

How to choose the perfect DJ for your event?

The number one thing that you want to look for in a DJ is experience. You are entrusting this person with one of the most important days of your life. You want someone who has experience working with weddings and events, and you want to see proof of this by requesting references and reading reviews or feedback online.

Diversity matters when it comes to DJs. A good DJ will be able to read the crowd and understand what style of music people want to hear. If everyone at the party wants to hear country, then, by all means, the DJ should be spinning a lot of Keith Urban. However, if Latin music is what the crowd wants to hear, then a good DJ should be able to recognize that and switch over to something else.

There are so many things that can go wrong with a DJ. Looking at the best one is like finding a needle in the field. A good rule of thumb is to interview at least three different DJs and ask them specific questions about their past experiences. A bad DJ will never ask you any questions about your music tastes or what types of events you like. A good DJ will ask you these types of questions, in order to match you with the right DJ for your event.

The 5 most important things to remember when hiring a DJ are as follows:

1) Experience: You want someone with plenty of experience and a good reputation in the industry.

2) References: You want to call past clients and see how they liked working with the DJ that you are considering.

3) Budget: You want to find a DJ within your price range, but you don’t want to hire the cheapest one because it isn’t worth it if they sound horrible or have a bad reputation.

4) Style: You want someone whose style and personality are a good fit for you and your wedding.

5) Preparation: Most of the time, DJs will email you a list of questions in order to customize the playlist and make sure everything goes smoothly on the day of your wedding.

 Must-have features of an excellent Vancouver DJ service

Club-Style lighting: Nothing transforms a room into a dance hall quicker than powerful lighting. Good DJ services will have the ability to enhance your reception by changing colors, strobes, or flashes to create different atmospheres and moods at your event. They can create a relaxing, quiet mood for your guests during the cake cutting and meal. When the dancing starts, they can turn up the fun and pump up the volume to get everyone on the dance floor.

A professional DJ must always respect your wishes. You hired them so you can dictate how you want your wedding to go down. A good DJ will take this information and act upon it appropriately by choosing the best music for your wedding. They will strive to keep everyone at your wedding happy by adjusting the music to the audience’s mood.

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.
