Many people have questions about how to choose the best DJ for their event. Here are the answers to many commonly asked question about DJ's.
Should a DJ be Experienced?
Yes. But a good DJ doesn't need experience and an experienced DJ isn't always good. Experience gives a DJ something to draw from other than raw volume! There is a learning curve which is only mastered by having experience but TALENT doesn't come from experience.
I have worked in the DJ entertainment business since 1986. I have worked for 4 different DJ companies, as a DJ Entertainer, Equipment Manager and General Manager. I have performed all over the Twin Cities and southeast Minnesota.
Can a DJ do a good job is he/she lets the music do the talking?
I don't think so. People expect to hear music from the DJ. It's what you do with the music and between the music that counts. HOW a DJ handles the evening is an art form. If the music is paint, then the DJ's personality is the paint brush.
How much does a DJ's personality matter?
The DJ's personality is very important. Is he/she someone you get along with? Meet with the DJ. Get the feel of how they will "put it together" for you. I've seen young good looking DJ's sitting behind the DJ equipment all night, and older ones with lots of energy. Others don't even realize what the dance COULD be. Good DJ's have something inside them that drives them toward entertainment. I will meet with you and together we can create magical moments.
All the DJ companies say they can do a "better" job. How do I know which ones are better?
They will tell you what you want to hear. Or at least what they think you want to hear. And some of them will do a fine job. My question is; do you want things to be fine, or FANTASTIC? I've been making memories with brides and grooms for more than 20 years!
Remember, they want your business. I want your trust! I genuinely care about your wedding, and I want to ensure that your wedding is personalized and professional. I remember my wedding and we wanted everything "perfect." It's a once in a lifetime event! Magical Moments DJ is ready to be there and support your vision. We can make a difference.

So what makes a DJ good?
Energy. Love of music (all the music, not just some kinds). Charisma. Animation. Doing what YOU need. Being a host. Directing the evening so you can enjoy it, right along with your guests. Friendly. Courteous. Knowledgeable. Dare I say throw some talent in there too?
I also believe it helps to have acting/theatrical experience. I've been involved in college and community theater since 1977.
I am trained and experienced in Public Relations. I received my formal training in 1982 and I have been in the public relations field ever since. Having an understanding of the art form we call mobile entertainment doesn't hurt either!
But most of all a good DJ LOVES what they do. Having fun! Fun with the guests, fun with the music, fun with the events. It's not rocket science, but not just anyone can do it well.
Why should I spend money on a good DJ for my wedding? Wouldn't it be better to put any extra money to other parts of the wedding?
While the entertainment budget for your wedding is one of the smaller items, it is one of the biggest memories that people will take away from it. The comparatively small price difference between a budget DJ and a quality DJ is well worth the cost.
