My Fiance is convinced that the DJ we are looking at booking should allow us to come to an event of his and let us see his equipment, and see how the set up would look like, what it sounds like, and how the dj interacts with the crowd. The DJ told him that all of his events are private and we could not attend.
Personally, I wouldn’t want some random person at my wedding to be just there looking for DJs, so I completely understand.
I don’t know what to do. Has anyone ever gone to see a DJ play?

I saw a ton of videos of my DJ spinning at frat parties and 1 wedding so I didn’t need to see him in person. My DJ was an ex of mine though so I knew his musical taste, style (and since I have a lot of DJ friends I also knew what the set up and equipment would look like from him telling me what he had). If I didn’t have the videos and knowledge of different set up’s I’d have definitely went to see one of his events because we were looking for something very very specific.
The DJ telling you all his events are private doesn’t sound right… I’d ask again to see him in action or to see a video at least.

I’ve seen my DJ play, but both times we saw him it was random. He was just dj’ing at an event that we were at. But I think he did mention that we could go see him at other peoples weddings…
