How to choose your Wedding DJ


        Single Op DJ Company


 Multi Op DJ Companies


 Multi Ops DJ Companies: Usually have a big and comfortable office in downtown with one or more managers with a complete staff for operation such as, Receptionists, sellers managers, marketing, and a group of 15 or more subcontracted djs depending how many bookings they get per day, They rely on volume, So you may be pressured to book immediately at the spot, and you may not know who your DJ will be until just before the wedding. and usually this djs are no experienced and professional as you think, and they are just performing on your wedding for probably $200 or $300 the night, So they don't really care about the success of your event, because they are getting paid not matter what. At the end you find your self over paying from $3500 to 5000 for a $300 DJ Service. And the rest of the money you paid is used to pay the rent of the office, staff salary and marketing. 

Single Operator DJ Companies:  Usually is a DJ who works on his own, who don't have a big and comfortable office in downtown, and sometimes don't have an office at all, because don't manage the same volume of booking as a Multi Op. Therefore they can focus all their attention on you, and on how you want your day to flow, because you will be the only event planned for that day and make the meetings and business more personal  and more comfortable for you and you fiance.

The first vantage of hiring a Single Op DJ is that you will have the privilege of meeting with the Owner of the company and at the same time who also will be your DJ for your event, from the first consultation meeting until your wedding day he will be educating you and giving you advices and ideas of how to make your wedding day successful based on his experience.

The second vantage is that a single Op DJ can customize the prices of the packages according to your budget and what you need, Because he is the owner of his own company and have the free to adjust the prices at his convenience. Therefore you will find your self paying for a personalized and priceless DJ Services less than would you pay to a Multi Op DJ Company.

The third vantage is Costumer Service and Quality: This DJ it would do everything he can to keep his business reputation on top, therefore he will put all his effort in cover every detail discussed to make your event successful and  flawless, to get the clients happy with the services and willing to promote his business writing some good reviews or word of mouth.

Wedding DJs VS Club DJs

Both DJs have knowledge about music and have the ability to beat match and mix different genres of music. But when it comes to host or perform in a wedding or a night club we are very different professionals. Each require very different skill sets and it is rare to find a DJ qualified to do both functions flawlessly.
Like any other professional we are specialized in what we have experience. For example, there are lawyers for criminals issues and also lawyers for family issues like divorce or child support. Both are qualified lawyers but different field or specialty, the same occurs with DJs.

A Club DJ is a resident DJ who performs in the same nightclub weekend after weekend. He will be intimately familiar with the night club clientele (crowd) and know the type of music that works to keep the dance floor full, they usually create a pattern or style playing the same type of music for the same age group and approximately the same number of patrons each night depending on the kind of night club they play.

A Club DJ usually specializes on beat matching different songs together with a very limited genre of music such as Top 40, Hip hop, House and Dub step. This all depending on the kind of club and crowd they work for. The MC at a night club just encourages the crowd to dance during the night. They don't have to go as far as hosting an event such as your Wedding reception. They would be more suitable performing at a school party or a birthday party.

On the other hand an Experienced Wedding DJ  is a more versatile professional and will have proficient knowledge of a thousand different songs of all genres from 50's to 90's, Top 40, Hip Hop, Urban, Country, Jazz, Hispanic, Caribbean, as well as many different ethnic music.

A successful Wedding DJ fully understands the requirements, traditions and objectives of a wedding reception. He is able to plan and execute all the music needed for your event from formal music for your ceremony, classic background tunes for your cocktail hour and dinner time, and the ability to host and mix your customized playlist for your reception as well as maintain the flow of the night.

No wedding is the same as the other, therefore, Wedding DJs are able to adapt and adjust performance and style from event to event. We have the ability and experience to read the crowd throughout the night and adjust the music based on age group, gender and culture.

An experience Wedding DJ have the knowledge to act no only as a DJ we also performance as MC hosting the night from the very beginning of your wedding reception at the cocktail hour until 1:00 am, All the Announcements, including The Bride and Groom Big Entrance, Wedding Party introduction, Special Dances, Speeches  and the interactive wedding games. The whole entertainment is rolled and hosted by your DJ.

Must people think that DJ we just press a button and music is on, they don't take us seriously and most of the time they don't look at us like a professional wedding vendor. But they don't have idea that their wedding night is in our hands, Remember that the DJ is the only one person who can make your event memorable or miserable, your guests they will forget about the hall, the flowers, the decoration even the wedding cake and the food, But they will always remember how fun or bored was your wedding night.

 So make sure that when you are looking for your a DJ for your wedding make sure to hire a Wedding DJ and not a Night Club DJ, and don't choose your dj just because the price, Night Club DJ can be more affordable because they have no experience  about performing as a wedding DJ and they don't know all the work and programing involve for your event. They will treat your wedding as a night club loosing most of the crowd because of the music style and they might show up in jeans and a shirt at your wedding reception.

 At DJ Santy Entertainment we take the time to guide and educate our clients about  how to program their Wedding Reception and make the whole event flawless and memorable. we are specialized in weddings and we have the experience to manage all the entertainment requirements on the most important day of you life.
