I’m meeting with 2 potential DJ’s tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone has any particularly good questions to ask them! Or what do you wish you would’ve asked your DJ? Would love to hear anything helpful! Thanks!!

Off the top of my head, I have these ones:
Have they performed at your venue before?
Will they come early to set-up? (You don’t want them bringing in equipment during dinner!)
Do they have a back-up in case of an emergency?
Will you be able to sign the contract with the the DJ who will actually be at your wedding specified? (I know some larger ones won’t let you know who the actual DJ is until a month or so before your day – unless you book a package requesting a specific DJ – but I wouldn’t personally want to leave that unknown if it can be prevented.)
What does the package include (length of time, lighting, etc.) and how much is it?
Will I be able to preview the DJ? (previews are not standard practice, but could be worth asking to see if they will offer that)
Hope that helps 🙂

How would you describe your playing style?
How do you liven a bored crowd?
How interactive are you with guests?
If I give you a list of songs that aren’t your playlist can you get them? Can you honor my must play and do not play lists?
How much is overtime? When should we tell you if we want extra time?
Do you take requests from guests?
What kind of speakers and equipment do you use? What if something happens to it at the reception? (Ask if they have BOSE!! LOL)
What if you can’t make it to the reception?
