As a professional DJ with over 20 years experience I thought it might be helpful if I offered a few tips to help you get the right DJ for your wedding.
This is the second in a series of tips.
Many DJ's businesses operate as sole traders but other DJ or entertainment businesses are multi operators.
A multi operator acts as an agent for other DJ's or employs other DJ’s to work for them.
The multi operators typically take a share of the fee you pay and employee other DJ's to actually undertake the DJing.
Tip Number 2
Check whether the DJ or Entertainment Company is a sole trader or a multi operator employing or passing work onto other DJ's
There is nothing wrong with a multi operator DJ or entertainment business.
As I identified in Tip 1 it is extremely important that you meet directly with the DJ who will be attending and DJing at your wedding to ensure you have confidence in them and are comfortable with what they can offer.
Meeting the owner of the business may not give you an accurate picture of the DJ that may turn up for your wedding.
When considering any reviews or recommendations make sure they relate to the DJ you are considering employing and not other DJ's working for the same multi-operator.
