TIPS ON CHOOSING THE BEST DJ FOR YOUR ROCHESTER HOLIDAY PARTY
The last thing you want is your company office Christmas or Holiday party in Rochester to be boring. Read these tips on choosing the best DJ for your Rochester Holiday party!
The summer has ended, Fall is almost out of here and before you know it, the holidays will be arriving. Many people are thinking about Christmas and the holidays at this point in the year but did you know that NOW is actually the best time to be thinking about choosing your DJ for your office / corporate Christmas party even before Thanksgiving arrives. Before you know it, we’ll be pouring the egg nog and putting up the mistletoe at Christmas parties all around the Rochester area. The “music” at your private company or corporate Christmas party should not be taken lightly.
While Kalifornia Entertainment has forged an amazing reputation for being one of the best and most in-demand Rochester wedding DJs, I’d also like to share that same passion for creating the most amazing soundtracks for your corporate or private office Christmas/Holiday party. Even the most strict and professional workplaces deserve to unwind and have an incredible amount of fun at an annual festive party. The best music is one of the most important factors in making sure your party is the best social event of the year in your company and employees are still talking about it weeks later at the water cooler. We’ll get back to Rochester Wedding DJ stuff soon, but in the meantime, here’s an exploration of a few tips on choosing the best DJ for your Rochester Holiday Party.
Book A DJ Early Is Important
The same belief holds true for Christmas parties and private events as does for Rochester weddings. If you’d like to have best and most respected DJ at your Christmas party, book early, because the best DJs book fast and far out. This is even more important when you are dealing with my company, because I am an “owner-operated” company. This means you get one excellent DJ from start to finish at your Christmas party. Also, do not wait until December 1st to begin looking for your Rochester DJ. The selection of great DJs will be greatly diminished, if not non-existent by that time.
Research A Few DJs To Get To Know Them
If you are reading this post right now, you are most likely doing a “search for a great DJ for your Rochester, NY Christmas party.” Well, what I need you to do right now is click on the link that says “Contact Us” and let’s talk. I am well aware that it’s not that easy. Check out the DJs reviews and referrals and make sure they have a high end and beautiful looking website with professional sound and lighting. Every DJ has a certain specialty, but all the professional ones in Rochester will know how to take your party to the next level with a perfectly mixed set of songs from a large well-rounded library that caters to young and old.
Hire An Experienced Rochester DJ
Price should not be your only factor in deciding who will be your DJ. The more experienced DJs are going to be a little higher-priced because they not only have the reviews to back them up, but they have also invested in top of the line equipment, which will make for the best sound at your Christmas party. The lowest price is not always the best option, and the most expensive DJ is not necessarily going to give you the best party either. You should decide to talk with 2 or 3 DJs and then go from there. Since I am an “owner-operated” DJ service, I love to meet with my clients before their wedding or event so they can be somewhat comfortable with me and get to know my personality a little bit.
Make The Music About Your Company
One of the benefits to booking your Christmas party early is you can get a head start on selecting your music. Depending on how large your office is, you might be able to circulate an email chain around your office and have everyone respond with a song they’d like to hear, and then you can send that list over to your DJ so they can begin planning the music for your all-important Christmas party. If you are able to get input from the people in your office, this is a sure-fire way to make sure the playlist at your Christmas party is the most fun and memorable and people will remain on the dance floor the entire night.
Have A Contract
Professional wedding DJs in Rochester are going to conduct their business “contractually”. Meet with your DJ beforehand to discuss the where and when of your company Christmas party. Be sure you ask them if they have ever played at the specific venue that you have chosen for your party. You also need to ask them when they will be arriving for set up. When you book your private event / office Christmas party with Kalifornia Entertainment, there are NO set up fees or break down fees. I’ll be arriving at least 2 to 3 hours early to set up and do a soundcheck before your party. This is to create 100% peace of mind for not only YOU, the client, but also ME, the DJ. If I have not been to a venue, I will request the contact information of the venue manager and will set up a time to meet and do a quick walk-through of the venue for power and other logistical (load-in) questions.
Hire Kalifornia Entertainment For Your Christmas Party
Nothing wrong with a little shameless self-promotion. Whether you are planning on having your Christmas party in Rochester, Greece, Irondequoit, Spencerport, Hilton, Penfield, Brighton, Webster, Pittsford, Victor or some other region in Western NY, make sure you read over this blog post before you proceed in booking your DJ. As I tell my wedding clients, the DJ that you decide to hire is going to end up making or breaking this night for you. And if you are the one being put in charge of planning and getting the details together for your Christmas party and end up hiring a bad DJ, you’ll have to live with your decision for the next 365 days which could lead to tense and uncomfortable times as you get some odd looks from co-workers in the hallway or in the breakroom. Regardless of who you decide to go with for your Rochester Holiday Party, we hope it’s a fun and memorable (in a good way) evening for all of your co-workers, and you become the office hero!
