Finding the Perfect Spot for Your DC DJ Service!
No matter the occasion, if you have hired a Washington DC DJ Service provider, you have made music a priority. Any time a DJ Service is added they are integral part of the celebration. Think about it, other than for things like toasts, speeches, and vow exchange, the DJ is playing music the majority of the time.
Whether you have hired a DJ Service for your Washington DC wedding celebration or they were hired to entertain your guests at a holiday party, you want a successful event. That means you want your guests entertained and happy and that you are able to enjoy the party and not worry about details. This article is intended to help with the latter. By assigning the DJ the perfect plot of land at the venue, your guests will be enjoying the party and not complaining to you.
Ask your venue before you book your venue.
“It’s too loud!” No matter who says it, it is always true. For that person or persons, it is too loud. That person may be the manager or owner of the venue. In their venue or in their area, there may be a mandate on the volume. More and more new venues are opening. With the popularity of barn venues, we are seeing more and more farms being used as wedding venues. The long time neighbors of these farms have been used to the farm tractors being parked well before sunset. Not all neighbors are as understanding or “All About That Bass”.
Pay attention to the seating chart.
Older guests will are more sensitive to the volume than younger guests. Perhaps because of hearing aids or simply they have become less tolerant, older guests are the first to complain about the music volume. Keep this in mind when you are creating your seating chart. Those sitting closest to the DJ Set-up should be those who are most likely to spend the majority of their time on the dance floor.
Position your DJ closest to the dance floor.
While this was not listed first, it is the most critical. For most events the DC DJ Service you choose will not only provide the music, they will provide the sound system itself. While the sound for the cocktail hour and dinner portion of the event should be spread equally across the venue, the overall volume will increase once the dance floor opens. Seating your guests at tables between the DJ and the dance floor should be avoided at all costs for two reasons.
The first reason is that those assigned to tables in front of the DJ Booth will likely not want to sit at that table once the dancing starts. It may legitimately be too loud and could be dangerously loud for young children.
The second reason is that your DJ will give their best performance when they can interact with the dance floor. Not being able to see the dance floor clearly can affect the party as the DJ cannot see what song they need to transition out of or is it time to slow the party down before you dance them out for the night.
Your DJ should monitor the sound throughout the event. There is no such thing as “set it and forget it” when it comes to sound. Sound is a funny thing and there are so many factors that go into getting the clarity and the volume right at a particular venue. Our experience in setting up sound for vocal performances has helped us immensely with being able to dial in our sound system to fit the venue.
