Wedding DJ Skills
What skills should your Wedding DJ have?
A simple enough question to ask but not a very easy one to answer.
These are many different answers to this question, all of which could be correct. A great Wedding DJ will have a great number of wide and varied skills, some of which will be ideal for your wedding. Your Wedding DJ will need the right skills for your wedding , and that is possibly the better question to ask – what skills will my Wedding DJ need for my wedding?
A quick search of the internet for ‘Wedding DJ’ will reveal hundreds of so called ‘specialist’ Wedding DJs – but what exactly is a ‘specialist’ Wedding DJ? Now I have performed at hundreds and hundreds of weddings and I am not really sure, I might be one without even knowing it! – perhaps you should ask those who claim to be a ‘specialist’ Wedding DJ.
I believe that your Wedding DJ should suit your own particular needs and the many ‘specialist McWedding DJs’ out there might not be suitable for your particular wedding.
When choosing your DJ to perform at your wedding here are a few skills that might be required:
- Particular equipment eg uplighting, video, karaoke
- Ability to read a crowd
- Wide musical knowledge
- Specific knowledge of a particular music genre
- Music programming skills
- Prompt professional service – Bert the Builder & part time ‘specialist’ wedding DJ may not be right for you
- Mixing skills
- Game playing to keep the kids occupied
- Master of ceremony skills (NB There is no substitute for the real thing!)
- Wedding Planning skills
and so on…
What is important is finding the right DJ with the right skills required for your wedding. Only you can decide that, and it is your task to find the DJ that matches your requirements.
