Slow Music Works For A Good DJ Too!

Most folks when thinking about their wedding and its accompanying playlist; they think of partying, up-tempo music. Every now and then a couple wants slow music as their preferred choice for their reception. It is not as uncommon as one would assume as a professional Wedding DJ.

Recently a Bride and Groom thought they had guests that did not like to dance, “We are Chinese and are too shy to dance, especially to fast music”. I smiled thinking in my head I have heard this before as a Wedding DJ  and saw the results of picking the correct songs for that audience and people not only danced, they grooved to fast and slow tunes.

The reception started out with folks requesting all slow songs but halfway through, The Maid of Honor began the trend of asking for dancing tunes. Her excitement and energy let me know there would be dancing and not just slow songs.

As soon as dinner was completed. I played a few slow tunes to get folks on the dance floor and it was less than two minutes later before it was full of couples dancing slow and lovingly.  After I sensed they were ready, I switched to some of the faster, popular songs as a bridge, and it worked.  They danced to everything non-stop till it was time for dessert.

Another great wedding with happy friends and family for the Wedding DJ!

DJ Spins Another Totally Fun Wedding!

If you have been following my blogs, you know that I had been looking forward to The Wedding of Yomi & Mark. I have really grown to know and like them very much. I can’t lie, I knew in advance this would be a fun wedding based on the music they choose and just spending time with them. The wedding was held at Stevens Institute in Hoboken, NJ right on the Hudson River with a fabulous view of Manhattan, NYC, NY.  The ceremony was outside near sunset with a scare by some swirling winds making us believe we would have to move inside due to possible storms but we were fortunate it styed beautiuful and even lowered the temperature a few degrees. Here is what the ceremony looked like:

With The Groomsmen looking stately:

And of course The Bridesmaids were stunning:

The Bride and Groom are such wonderful people that I knew they would look outstanding because they love each other and have great friends and family.

One of the unique aspects of their reception they decided in advance that since they were having a buffet, they wanted us to play dance and fun Wedding DJ music all night long without the often mellowing effect that dinner music can sometimes facilitate. It worked as it had at other weddings that we have determined this style was preferred for certain receptions.

This allowed people to come on and off the dance floor as they felt moved and ate when they needed a break or hungry. Another advantage is that there are people on the dance floor all night and not waiting for others to get started. There were couples and individuals choosing to dance without the need of a full dance floor.

After everybody was done eating and warmed-up, things really got rockin’ and nobody wanted the night to end, including the Wedding DJ himself.

A good time was had by all.

DJ Wedding Ceremony Prelude Music

A Wedding DJ often gets asked by Brides and Grooms preparing for their Wedding, “What is the best Prelude Music to have in the background before our Ceremony?”


The answer is actually pretty easy and painless. First,the Wedding DJ need to know what kind of music you are wanting to create the right mood for your guests as they find their seats and excitedly settle in anticipating  your ceremony. Most people appreciate either some nice calming Classical, Acoustic piano, guitar or harp or gentle Jazz.


Here are some popular Wedding DJ suggestions for you to consider:

Two Worlds Connect Through Wedding DJ Music

I always get excited when hired to DJ and MC a wedding from a Bride and Groom of different cultures, which seems to be my specialty these days. The challenge and opportunity to blend styles of Wedding DJ music and genres during such an important celebration is fun and inspiring. In advance, I am often a bit concerned that it will not work. What if the family from The Groom’s culture will not appreciate the music from The Bride’s culture? Or the reverse?  What if it is too much of a stretch for them to connect? Is it realistic for everybody to just be placed in the same room and find a way to have fun and enjoy the magic of the wedding?


The answer is NO! It is not a stretch or a problem for an experienced Wedding DJ.

It is not something to fear or be concerned about. A good professional Wedding DJ with experience blending and balancing music will not have a problem making your wedding a fantastic success! Make sure you sit down with your professional Wedding DJ and take time planning your musical selections and playlists together. Listen to their experience and be clear what it is you want; it is your wedding. Listening to Brides and Event Planners, as well as that of your guests are some of the most critical skills of an outstanding Wedding DJ.

It is 2011 and we do not have to settle for Prima Donna DJs that are not interested in listening or respecting the needs of Brides, Grooms or Event Planners. Today’s professional Wedding DJs need to be able and interested in quality communication and direction, while being able to follow their own intuitive talents in meeting the needs of diverse groups and populations. This is not 1980 anymore where the Wedding DJ was in charge and everybody had to put-up with whatever they did because we didn’t know any better or were not able to find anoutstanding Wedding DJ.

Today there are many outstanding Wedding DJs. Take your time in hiring the right one for your unique wedding or event. The professional Wedding DJ is not the place to compromise. Know what you want and do not be afraid to ask for it and expect it be honored. It is your wedding or event.

Big Smiles For The Wedding DJ

There is a point in every event that the professional Wedding, Party or Event DJ gets his/her reward for a job well done. You can see it in the smiles and posture of the guests at the party. They can’t help but let the great energy of celebration get the best of them. If no one is facing us, we see other forms of evidence if paying attention.  It is easy to be misguided by the packed dance floor. I have been at events when the dance floor is packed since people really want to dance even if they do not like the music the DJ is playing. Dancers will dance! It is the passion and excitement in how they dance that is a greater indicator of success for the professional Wedding DJ.

When I was younger, I used to worry that when too many people asked for requests it meant I was doing a bad job. This is not always so. Time and experience have taught me that often they are having so much fun that each new song gets them fired-up about another great song they want to hear. Requests can be an effeective means of determining success or failure as a professional DJ. The difference is how they ask.


A while back I was helping out another DJ at a wedding. The crowd kept shifting between wanting old and new music due to the varied ages of guests. Some folks were feeling avoided and angrily appraoched the Wedding DJ station with comments like, “Do you have any music from this decade?” or ” Do you know there was music invented before last month?”. These are indicators of the Wedding DJ missing what the crowd needs.


On Saturday night the requests were more like, “Wow! Marvin Gaye was great. Do you have any other Motown?” and “The Bride loved Pitbull so much she was wondering if you could also play his new song with Ne-Yo ‘Give Me Everything’? Please?” I played both Motown and Pitbull and they worked out great. The greatest reward for me was seeing The Bride smiling ear-to-ear.  At the end of the night, The Bride, Groom and her sister all gave me big hugs when I was leaving, as if they were about to lose their new best friend. It certainly made the ride home on the Garden Sate Parkway a breeze on that hot summer night from this beautiful outdoor, backyard Wedding DJ.

Last Minute Event DJ

It is not often but sometimes I have an open date approaching the weekend. It is even rarer when that date is a holiday three-day weekend like the Fourth of July. Stranger yet was that two separate clients wanted to hire me last minute for the same day but at different times. One needed a professional DJ for a First Communion celebration in the afternoon and the other a unique form of Wedding Party in the evening. We somehow found a way to schedule both of them and serve the families that requested our services last minute!


Fortunately for me, I have been doing this for a long time and don’t need much time or preparation to get ready for a last minute professional DJ gig. Of course, I appreciate the prep time when I have it, but can show-up wihtout much notice or details and do an excellent job providing professional DJ services and great music.


I was speaking with a friend over dinner last night about the fact that I always try to create a ‘playlist’ of songs which is more of a music bank then playlist. I take the songs that the client has requested and place them in a ‘playlist’ for their event. I then add on a 2:1 ratio another group of songs that would compliment their requests perfectly.  These are where I will start from at the event till I get a sense of the crowd and get a nice request list going from those attending the event. Together with the original list they offered, the ones I added intuitively, what I can see and feel working and the crowds requests – we end up with an excellent event full of great music and fun!


I am excited about both of these gigs and an additional Wedding on Sunday. The last minute Wedding is actually a kind of Wedding I have not served previously as a professional Wedding DJ. The Bride and Groom have already been married and celebrated at a destination Wedding in The Caribbean. This party is for the friends and family that could not attend their Destination Wedding. Should be fun!

The first song that surprised me by its placement on the list is #11 “El Paso”. I did not think that still today it had the same popularity as some of the others. I will be mindful of this the next gig I have that includes oldies. On the flip side, I thought  “Respect” would rank higher, since it is requested all the time. I also would have thought The Drifters “Save The Last Dance For Me” would be in the top 25. It never would have occurred to me, although one of my favorite songs of all time, that Jimi Hendrix version of “All Along The Watchtower” would even be on this list, forget about being #64. Glad I am wrong, even a professional DJ learns something from clients.


What songs surprised you?

Mr DJ, Please Don’t Go!

On Saturday night, I was booked as Wedding DJ by a fellow DJ due to overbooking on his part. We all try to support each other and when he asked me to take this gig awhile back I had no trouble filling in for him. One aspect of having somebody all else book a weding for you is you miss out on planning the reception with the couple getting married. Of course, I called her earlier in the week and we spoke a few trimes to make sure that we were on the same page. The wedding was held in the huge backyard of The Bride in Robbinsville, NJ just outside of Trenton.


I knew early in the night this was going to be a fun wedding party when I was playing basic Classic Rock as requested by the couple and folks were rockin’ at their tables eating salad. If Bryan Adams was having trouble keeping them in their seats, the rest of the night was going to be a breeze for this Wedding DJ. It was.


During the break between salad and dinner, The Bride sent The Maid of Honor to ask me to play some party music because she wanted to dance. One minute later the dance floor was packed and the caterer was yelling at me because no one was seated at their tables to serve dinner because the Wedding DJ had them too involved. I had to ask everybody to return to their seats for dinner. They all growled at me but grudgingly made it back to their tables for an excellent dinner.


When she was done eating, she again sent The Maid of Honor to ask me to crank things back up again and this time it took even less time for people to be bumping into each other on the dance floor. It was like this throughout the night. They sure loved to party!


We were booked for the standard five hour wedding from 6-11. Apparently, that was not enough for them. They asked us to stay another hour knowing the rate for overtime agreed upon in advance.  At 11:55 I announced last song and played the tune they requested to end the night, Black Eyed Peas “The Time (Dirty Bit)”. I felt like such a bad person since nobody left the dancce floor after I started turning off all my gear. I was just about to shut-down my main power when The Bride and her Father approached me and begged us to stay one more hour. Of course, all the guests heard this exchange and started chanting, “One more hour! One more hour!” with a few young ladies pleading mercilessly in the background. We gave-in and turned the gear back-on and readied ourselves to start the party again to the clapping and cheers from their friends and family.


What a fun group of people! We had so much fun just providing music for them to party and celebrate with The Bride and Groom. We realized that we needed to wear them out or they would never let us go home! Finally around 1:15 they started looking a bit ragged. Some even jumped into the swimming pool with cold water in their clothes to cool-off!


It was a great night and my ride home was full of smiles and contentment over a job well-done. By the time I got home, I was exhausted from the event and ready for bed myself with the chant of “One More Hour! One More Hour!” ringing in my head. Finally, the Wedding DJ can rest.

How To Mix Genre As A Professional DJ

This week I have been preparing for a wedding this Saturday in Robbinsville, NJ.  The couple, like many young couples, have differing tastes in music. This is not a problem for a professional Wedding DJ whom is not stuck in the mind-set that they need to play one style to be effective, actually my experience demonstrates much to the contrary.


This particular couple have very contrasting music that they enjoy. He is a fan of Country and Rock Music while she gets fired-up with some Dance, Pop and Hip Hop.  As you can see, they do not compliment each other very well musically.


So what does a professional Wedding DJ do to make both of them happy and their friends and family?  Glad you asked!


A bit of careful planning plus a knack for reading a crowd go a long way towards blending genres.  The planning piece is making sure you have the music they want. I needed to scan through my 35,000 song library and see if all the songs they want I have plus the songs and artists that would mix well with them. Next I created an iTunes playlist so I have their stuff all ready without having to search through the database. I do not put any of the music in order except for the special songs like The First Dance, Father/Daughter, Mother/Son, Bouquet and Garter Tosses, etc. A good Wedding DJ wants to have the freedom to allow the energy of the crowd dictate the order of the music for the most part, unless the client asks for it to be in a specific order. I also take the time to make sure each file opens and plays correctly, can’t do anything about it while live and the whole reception is waiting for you to crank-up a tune for The First Dance. Then it is too late. When that is all completed, I am ready for the gig and that leads us to the more critical piece of blending styles at a event.


Common sense tells us that the Dance and Hip Hop will mostly belong after the dinner and traditional dances since they are made for fun, party dancing.  Also most of the songs in those genres do not make good background music at a wedding for enjoying dinner for guests of all ages.  The reverse is true to a lesser extent of Country and Rock.  A good portion of Popular Country Music works well during dinner, as many Rock Classics like the ones he picked; The Band, Journey, Pink Floyd and Bob Seger to list a few. Some of the Country selections like Lady Antebellem, Kenny Chesney and Toby Keith make great dinner music if you appreciate Country msuic, which I do, and so does the Groom which is more important.


After dinner and Bouquet and Garter Tosses, we can move into the dance stuff like Beyonce, Keri Hilson, Rihanna, Ciara and one of my favorites these days, Yolanda Be Cool and DCup.  I do not want to forget that some of the Rock and Country stuff is also danceable and will mix that in when I play slow dance songs or immediately following a slow dance song.



After a set of fast dance songs from their list, I can mix in a slow song or two like Bob Seger “Like A Rock” and  Kenny Chesney “Me and You”. To slowly bring things back to a more partying level, I can play Neil Diamond “Sweet Caroline” since it starts slow and picks it up throughout the song. Now we are ready to blend the dance stuff back in again but still need a good song to segue with like Usher “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love Again” This song begins with a medium tempo befoire getting things cookin’ by the first chorus. We are back in business and the dance floor is pakced with folks moving and grooving. I can play any fast dance songs without much effort at this point. If I wanted, I could dip back into the list and mix in Van Morrison “Brown Eyed Girl” or Guns N Roses “Paradise City” if I blended them properly. This will keep everybody happy.


Chances are that if The Bide or Groom like a certain genre, so will many of their friends and often family as well. I think it is critical as a Wedding DJ to not leave out large groups of people when selecting music because you don’t like it or think it is too hard to mix into the set you are playing. Think it through and use your common sense to make a great party even better!

Good Professional DJs Learn From Other DJs

Last night I was watching and listening to a DJ at an event that I had not met before. Since I had performed at this event in the past, I knew what was expected and the direction he would be headed.  I even assumed there would be some crossover from the selections he picked to match the ones I had previously. I was wrong. It was surprising to me that a two and a half hour event had no common songs.  There certainly are enough Rock songs that the same event can take place for twenty years and not once have a repeat but since the theme of the event was so specific, I thought at least one would be played again.


What I learned more than the differences in style was the difference in technique. He did not fade songs in and out during introductions by the event host. He just blasted them in and stopped them when the host was speaking. It certainly was more powerful than fading but felt a bit jarring, and maybe even took some shine away from the host and the other paricipants.


When I am performing at an event that is not about dancing or partying, I do my best to be part of what is happening and not take over the event.  Sometimes our role as professional DJs is to provide the mood and energy but not be the focus. I think this takes maturity and experience to know when to let others be the headline and make room for them.


It was a fun event and glad I was able to be there.  The DJ did a good job and his audio equipment met the needs of the event perfectly. When walking out at the end of the night, the event producer pulled me aside and asked if I would be willing to do the event again next time. I smiled and said, “Of course!” I already have some songs in my head…
