Hiring the right DJ for your wedding is an important decision. Remember if being a wedding DJ was easy, than anyone could do it. The fact is, being a wedding DJ is not easy, and it has been proven time and time again that many people cannot do it! Chances are you have seen a bad DJ, right?
Remember? A good DJ isn't cheap... and a cheap DJ isn't good!
A good wedding DJ is a special mixture of an uptempo interactive personality, coupled with maturity, technical expertise, experience, and a love for people and music. Unfortunately, not everyone has this gift. If they did, shopping for a wedding DJ would be a whole lot easier. It takes years to cultivate this talent.
As a Professional Wedding Entertainer who has worked with hundreds of brides and grooms, let me outline the major benefits of choosing Elm City DJ as your wedding DJ:
Experience! I do not sub-contract DJ's or use a bait and switch DJ at your big day! I personally attend to each and every event. I am a trained wedding professional, with over 18 years experience. I know how to add to the excitement, without stealing the limelight. You may rest assured knowing that your event will be coordinated with class, style and precision. I always wear proper attire, have an enthusiastic attitude,have an extensive knowledge of music, and a comprehensive skill in event coordination that is second to none! I will personally act as your Master of Ceremonies, coordinating all details including introductions, cake cutting, bridal dances, bouquet & garter toss, etc. The right DJ can make all the difference!
Personal Service! You receive pampered treatment from the first phone call to your last dance. I take care of you... before your wedding, during your wedding, even after your wedding! Your complete satisfaction is that important to me! I'll get to know you personally. And come your wedding day, you'll probably know me more as a helpful friend, than as the "hired help"!
Reputable! I have been making wedding dreams come true for hundreds of couples since 1990. I have excellent relationships with, and am highly recommended by, the top wedding coordinators, banquet managers, photographers, caterers, and videographers throughout Maine because we successfully work together to create the perfect team on your wedding day. Ask your banquet manager or professional wedding photographer how important it is to find a DJ that wants to work with them! Elm City DJ is one of the most respected entertainment companies in the Maine.
Attire! I dress the part! Foral attire is the standard attire for me... unless you request otherwise.
Punctual! Seems silly to even hear, doesn't it! Amazingly, it's not as common to have the DJ on time as you might think. I am always on time! In fact, I'll be completely set up and coordinate all the details with the banquet staff before you arrive.
Quality Professional Equipment! I use only the very best digital audio & lighting equipment available today, for both superb sound quality and physical presentation. My equipment has a very attractive appearance! I take the time to make sure it looks GREAT for you!
Peace Of Mind! Extra music, extra amplifiers, extra speakers, extra everything! Would you risk your special day with less just to save a few bucks? In the unlikely event of equipment failure, we can be back up and running as long as it takes to run around in blind panic…uh, I mean calmly switch to our backup system! Should be three to fifteen minutes! It probably won't happen... BUT IT COULD! Imagine if you booked the wrong DJ they weren't prepared. Not only is there no music, but the party is virtually ruined! The difference in hiring the right DJ is a small investment towards the successful outcome of your reception!
Professionalism! I work with a time-proven professional wedding planner to help make your special day run smoothly and to ensure that all introductions/special announcements are pronounced correctly. And I'll will even be meeting with you just before the big day to make go over all the details, confirming I'll be there, and to make any last minute changes if needed.
Music Selection! I've been compiling and fine-tuning my extensive music library for over 18 years. And it's update it monthly, via the same sources such as Rick Dees and Casey Kasem! I customize the music to fit YOUR tastes. I bring your favorites and encourage your requests. And I don't suffer from "attitude or ego problems!" I are also sensitive to what is (and is not) tolerable raging volume.
Classy! I don't try to "force" you to do silly dances on your wedding day unless YOU want them! Having said that, however, I am imaginative and creative enough to make your party extra special. Yes I do clever things, but I don't "humiliate" you or your guests! You are the star… it's your show… it's your spotlight! I simply add that extra little sprinkling of excitement to make the show happen!
If ever a day of your life deserves the finest entertainment, this is it! You'll be happy to know you're trusting the most important day of your life to a DJ who performs at weddings as a profession, not just as a hobby. Anyone can play music... I entertain!
