Tips for Getting the Most out of Your Indian DJ

Posted by alexstephen on August 6th, 2014

A wedding without music is like a cake without cream. When it comes to a wedding, music is the most important carrier of entertainment for the guests. There are two basic ways of providing music during weddings—a live band or a music DJ. Between these two choices, you will find that the wedding DJs are cheaper and more convenient to manage.

When you select a bhangra DJ, you should see if that DJ has experience in playing Punjabi music. Cost of the DJ should never be the only deciding factor because there are many wedding DJs who would ask for less money and give low performances. If you want to cut down on the wedding budget, then you should make the right choice of selecting a wedding DJ over a popular live band. In most weddings, couples tend to keep a very low budget for wedding entertainment. But cutting the wedding entertainment budget can have a negative impact on the wedding guests.

In addition to the costs, you will have to keep an eye on the personality of the Punjabi DJ. The three main desired characteristics of wedding DJs are fun loving, friendly, and professionalism. When the wedding DJ has these aforementioned characteristics, you will find that the guests are treated in the best possible manner. Some Indian DJs are skilled mixers and they will make sure that every guest is entertained to the fullest. Always check whether the wedding DJ is friendly over the microphone and can easily understand your wedding requirements. Caste and religion should not be a selection criteria for the wedding DJ. There are some very good foreign DJs who are doing very well in Indian weddings as well.

When you are done asking the questions on the cost and personality of the wedding DJ, you will have to check out the equipment that he or she possess. Always ask the DJ what kind of speakers, mixers, and other equipment he or she will be using for your wedding.

You should always ask for a demonstration of the music before you select the Indian DJ. Look out for crackling speakers, dance lighting, microphone quality. If the wedding DJ has a small music library, you will have to ask that DJ to increase it. For the grand Indian wedding, the wedding DJ needs to be experienced so that he or she does not falter on the grand day. Only experienced DJs will be able to come out of difficult situations.

Most DJs will offer you their services in packages. You will have to understand very well what they offer in each package. Depending on the number of people, you will have to select the desired package. If there are differences in the microphones, you will have to select the best one—there is a huge difference in a £100 microphone and a £700 microphone. Selection of the wrong equipment will not only have a negative impact on the wedding, but it will also have a negative impact on the guests as well.
