When considering entertainment for a particular event in San Francisco and elsewhere, it's a good idea to get referrals from other event suppliers, as well as friends and family. This is one industry that depends and thrives on word-of-mouth advertising and recommendations. Additionally, meeting each potential entertainer face-to-face is vital, since an individual's professionalism and demeanor will indicate the quality of performance.

Tips on Booking a DJ

When interviewing DJs for a wedding, for example, ask about previous experience. Some DJs' music and skills are more suited to other event markets, like corporate meetings and conventions. These events require completely different entertainment functions, and it's important to choose a DJ that can handle a wedding reception crowd.

Each audience will have particular needs, and a professional entertainer should be able to anticipate these and gracefully handle any surprises or problems that come up. While it may seem like a good idea to give a DJ a complete list of songs to play, an experienced DJ will know the best way to get the audience motivated and dancing. It's important to make sure that a few necessary songs are played, but the rest should depend on the audience's mood and any requests that are made.

Event professionals, especially those with good reputations, will typically require months of advance notice for a gig. Starting early is key to getting the best entertainer at a good price with minimal stress and hassle. Many internet websites provide helpful checklists and timelines for booking entertainers, caterers, coordinators, photographers, and other professionals. Some even provide search capabilities that allow you to get in touch with DJs that are available for your date.
