3 Questions To Ask Your Chicago Wedding DJ
1. Are you a local company?
First of all, this is about shopping local, supporting local businesses.
The “national” company has no real presence here.
Sure you’ll get a DJ from the area. But either the DJ you get is taking a lower pay scale for the booking that the national company made. Or the DJ actually paid a fee to get the lead. The latter you could call marketing. The former could mean you might not be getting everything you have coming to you.
While good reviews online can help. But, this is about not knowing what you don’t know. As a result, it could be so much more. And you deserve it. Please, shop local.
That’s the first of the 3 Questions To Ask Your Chicago Wedding DJ. Here’s the next:
2. Will you be the DJ?
Great question to ask.
Because you might be meeting with the nicest person in the world.
But wouldn’t it be the right thing to speak directly to the person that will be doing the work?
Don’t fall for the “We’ll get to know you and sign the best dj to fit you.” That means your DJ might not be on staff yet, and they’ll assign your DJ when they hire them.
Also, don’t accept the “You’ll be invited to our open house to pick your DJ after you hire us.” The problem with that is the DJ you want won’t be available for your date, and you’ll be stuck with leftovers.
Get it in writing, and get the DJ/MC’s name on the paperwork.
3. Is this your full time job?
Due to DJs often starting their career because they need the extra part-time income. Hence, they begin by working in a club, or answering an ad for a local DJ company hiring band new trainees.
They needed the extra income to help pay bills, or because they just desperately needed a job. For some it became a seasonal position while they were in school, or while they worked in another arts profession.
All supplemental income.
Very few have the passion AND can make it a full time/long time career. Don’t be afraid to ask.
Go with the passion, go with the pro, go full time.
Cubs or Sox?
Most of all in a sports town like Chicago, this might be important to you.
Hiring a DJ is like choosing a life long friend.
This is someone who will be a huge part of your wedding celebration for a long time to come.
