is so much involved in planning a wedding...
are so many decisions to make. There is the
location, the caterer, attire, decorations, entertainment
and so on, Just take a moment and think back about
all the weddings you attended. Pick the one where
you had the best time. What do you remember the
most about that evening? Was it the hall, the food,
he bartender? I think you might see the point. What
makes a great party? I believe the secret is mostly
in the mix of your friends, an attractive setting
and great entertainment.
a DJ or even a twelve-piece band may not provide
much entertainment. Did you ever sit around at a
wedding where no one danced? Even if you don't dance,
you have to admit listing to good music and watching
others dance is a pretty interesting show. A DJ
should be much more than just a human jukebox.
is an art that requires being able to relate to
the audience and perform in a way that touches their
souls. Loving what you do is a great start and doing
it for the right reason helps. Be honest with yourself.
When you watch a good show aren't the stars so natural,
believable and completely immersed in their role?
They draw you in and you forget about watching the
show. You become part of the experience. That's
the difference between a real DJ and a human jukebox.
great DJ loves music,
a party and being a DJ.
DJ's enthusiasm is contagious.
beauty of being a DJ,
you get to share
is another important aspect to being a great DJ
and being part of the "life of the party"
in a sense. A DJ must be musical. The best DJs write
their own songs, know the key of a song they are
playing, its meter. The best DJs go on to become producers
or produce their own CDs. Like a good drummer, a DJ just
senses the right beat to connect with his audience.
That connection, that interaction is what makes
a musician great. Music is not about playing an
instrument. Whether it is a DJ system, voice, keyboard
or drums, they are just instruments that connect
the performer with the audience in a magical way. The
performer and the audience are in tune, on the same
wavelength, having a fantastic time.
know that the heart of entertainment is enjoying
being a performer, completely understanding the craft
and above all, making the connection. In some ways
being a DJ is almost psychic. While based mostly
on skill and experience sometimes you must rely
on your creative side to find a way to make the
audience move and find the groove.
