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.
