How do you get the most of your party entertainment? Party planning can be a difficult and stressful task. Your time is limited. Invest in the features of a party that make the biggest impact. The party entertainment you hire is one of the biggest factors that shape the success of the event.
Here are 8 things to consider before you sign a DJ party entertainment agreement to make sure you get the most out of the deal:
1. Request references.
Ask the entertainment company to provide you references. A professional business should be able to provide you reliable references in your local area.
2. Confirm music choices.
Request a music list of the songs they plan to perform at your event. This will not only give you a heads up on the music but will allow you to approve them beforehand. The playlist the company comes up with will also be a good indicator of their expertise. The songs they suggest should match your event type.
This is also a good time to find out if they can play specific songs you have in mind.
3. Determine the equipment they can provide.
Make sure the DJ entertainment company has the appropriate equipment for your type of event. You need to find out if they carry all the party equipment you need. A good entertainment business will provide sufficient party supplies so you won’t have to rent from a different source.
4. Ask if they can emcee your event.
This will save you money since you won’t have to hire a separate emcee to host your party. Meet with the actual emcee before the event as well so you can get a feel of his personality.
5. Confirm their setup and electrical requirements.
You need to find out if your event location has all the electrical and stage requirements for the party equipment the entertainment company will need. The last thing you want is to find out on the event date that the location lacks the capacity to support the electrical equipment.
6. Ask about lighting and other supplies.
Prior to signing the agreement, also find out what additional services the company provides. Do they provide lighting and is it appropriate for your event? What other party supplies can they offer?
7. Specify the dress code.
Make sure you discuss the formalities of the event so the DJ and the other entertainment staff are all dressed appropriately. Can they provide their own formal outfit for your party? If you are having a themed party, do they have their own clothes to match your specific theme?
8. Check other pertinent details of the agreement.
This includes making sure the agreement includes the exact date and time of the event. It should also specify the duration the entertainment company will be working. The host and the performers of the the show should also be detailed in the agreement. Don’t forget to check if all the previously discussed details are included, such as the lighting and other equipment.
The party entertainment will be one of the most memorable aspect of your event. Time and energy spent on making sure you and the DJ entertainment company are on the same page will be resources well-spent.
