Questions such as how much experience does the person operating the sound equipment have, not only with the equipment itself, but with public speaking, crowd control and problem solving? Even using professional-grade equipment, an amateur DJ may not have sufficient knowledge to effectively use all those knobs and buttons to their best advantage. The resulting sound may not be much better than your boom box. Something New DJ/MCs complete a rigorous apprentice program with a written curriculum emphasizing not only how to use the equipment effectively but how to evaluate acoustics, read the crowd to keep them dancing, speak with good diction, be tactful with guests and anticipate the needs of the wedding.
What do you want to remember most about your reception? Worrying whether your caterer knows it’s time to pour the champagne or if your photographer knows it’s time to cut the cake? Coordinating your reception instead of dancing? Cheesy announcements? Cueing and re-cueing the MP3 player? Listening to songs you don’t particularly like or maybe have never heard? Hiring a professional DJ company allows you to relax and actually enjoy the party you’ve spent so much time planning. What will happen if your friend or amateur DJ develops an illness, equipment failure or transportation problem? With a professional company, replacement equipment and additional staff should be readily available. Something New DJs work in pairs and have back-up equipment on-site.
