FAQ

There is a big difference between the audio equipment you have at home and the equipment the professional DJ/MC uses. Professional audio equipment is built to go on the road day in and day out. Be sure to ask about the sound equipment, even if you aren’t “stereo smart” you’ll be able to tell the difference.

All terms of the agreement should be in writing to avoid any complications at a later date. This insures you that the DJ/MC will show up. If you don’t have a contract, it’s a pretty good chance they might find a higher paying job and give you the slip. References are also an important part of any service business and your DJ/MC should be able to provide you with current names and phone numbers.

It is important that your entertainer looks the part by dressing in formal or semi-formal attire, according to your theme. Don’t assume the DJ/MC will be properly dressed. Be sure to ask what he or she will be wearing.

A professional DJ/MC can’t possibly know everything there is to know about all music styles and entertainment. They should be willing to listen to your ideas and input and incorporate them into the event.
They should also listen to your requests and play them where they are appropriate.
Keep in mind if you have a lot of requests the DJ/MC may not be able to play all of them.
Believe it or not there are some DJ services that will not play any requests.
Also beware of services that have you fill out a song request list. Often this is the only music they will bring. So if you want to hear something you forgot to write down, they may not have it on the night.
Our music selection is one of the largest with over 38,000 selections all on compact disc from the 30′s to current hits. It’s also important to have a variety of music especially to also cater for your guest too. Popular Wedding genres are: top-40, commercial dance, house, pop, disco, retro, country, jazz, rnb, rock etc.

A professional DJ will become involved in the planning of your function and will be prepared to handle any announcements or special events on that day. A guideline of the formalities should be discussed ahead of time and also supplied to you in writing before your Wedding Night.

How many times have you heard about the entertainment being late, or not even showing up?”]
This is probably because they are unreliable, or it happened because the DJ/MC booked an event before yours and ran overtime. Make sure your entertainment is set up prior to any guests arriving and ready to start when you want them to. Also make sure to ask if the DJ/MC has ever cancelled shows in the past.
If they have they may be double booking shows and taking the one that pays the most.

This is really scary if half way through the party something happens to the sound equipment, what will you do? Well if the DJ/MC doesn’t carry a back-up system the party is over. If the DJ/MC has a back-up system the party is only interrupted for a few minutes while he changes a component or replaces the system. Even professional equipment can fail on occasion, so it is very important to know whether your DJ/MC has a spare system available to them. Any number of circumstances may arise between the time you booked your DJ/MC to the time of the event. Make sure the DJ/MC has a back-up plan in case of illness or accident.

The biggest concern voiced by prospective clients is the volume level of the music. A professional DJ/MC knows to keep the volume at a level appropriate for the guests, especially during cocktails and the dinner hour.

A professional DJ/MC is aware that they can’t possibly know every aspect of music and entertainment.
Your input and suggestions should be welcome!

If you thought about renting or borrowing all the necessary components, or “doing it yourself”, you would most likely end up spending a lot of money and be quite disappointed with the results.
All the above devices are not substitute for a professional entertainer creating a show specially designed for you and your guests. There is constant starting and stopping of music, no flow of atmosphere in the room, and no BEAT MIXING of the music for you. You should be completely comfortable with your DJ/MC, who you choose for your wedding reception or special event as they will have greater impact and control of the dance floor on the night for you than any other forms of entertainment.

You should expect to get a call back or an Email back within 24 hours. Not all DJ’s are “full-time”, many are out working their “day jobs” and may not be able to return your call within an hour or two. You may want to ask them about their availability to you for answering questions and handling any problems that may arise, always confirm that there will be no conflict of interests on your chosen date.

Some DJ/MCs invite clients to see them at other receptions whilst they are performing. However, most DJs refuse to do this. Two problems with “visiting” is the fact that the reception you see is created specifically for an entirely different group than you and your guests. It is a significant imposition to invite strangers to someone elses wedding. Most clients would not like to have uninvited guests turn up at their wedding, especially where it is to benefit the DJ/MC they are paying.

The best way to judge a prospective D/MCJ is an in-person meeting which will help you to determine if you will be comfortable with them. This allows you to judge his/her appearance, posture, manners, speaking ability, and knowledge of receptions and music. A professional DJ should be friendly, personable, and easy to talk with. He should actively listen to your concerns and address them in a positive manner. He also should be able to explain the basic order of events, and what his strategy is for making your reception unique and special. A true professional is flexible and will always have more than one way to accomplish a goal.

There is NOTHING worse in the world than having to worry about things you shouldn’t have to,
You are hiring a professional and your worries should end right there. Choosing the person who “feels” right is the most important factor in picking the right entertainer for your party or reception. The DJ/MC you choose should be very open about what he/she can do for you and should volunteer information and “show” you that knowledge base. Is the person knowledgeable about your type of event? There are all kinds of DJ’s. Club DJ’s, Wedding DJ’s, Rave DJ’s, Radio DJ’s…the list is long and varied! Can the DJ/MC you interview handle your type of event? Ask the DJ/MC how many events of your type that they have done.

In a good interview, the DJ/MC should show you several documents. First and foremost is a RUNNING SHEET.
This RUNNING SHEET should impress you to the point where you begin to understand that the DJ/MC you are hiring is a professional, and is capable of handling your event. A sample copy of the AGREEMENT to be used should be available as well as a schedule of pricing information. And a SONG SELECTION sheets, for formalities at weddings, or, even is willing to take your requests prior to function at the interview stage for your special night. 

Many DJ’s do not use music play-lists, others do. In some fashion you need to be assured that the DJ/MC you hire not only has a sizable library, but has a wide variety of music especially selected for function, where many different styles of music and guests will be in the same room together.

A professional DJ/MC is ALWAYS willing to discuss your event at any time before the event starts, and should display the flexibility to accommodate changes and help you solve problems. Consultations with your DJ are of paramount importance to a successful event

This is the most common complaint about the DJ industry today. The person you meet turns out NOT to be the performer that actually does your show. Often, you are not aware of this. Ask the DJ you interview if they will be the actual person performing, or is the event to be handed off to someone else. You need to know this UP FRONT before you sign a contract.

Is your DJ a single operator or a “multi-op” with more than one system and more than one entertainer? Full-Time or Part-Time? This can be an important consideration. You need to be certain that you are going to be the priority on your special day, whichever service you choose.

Simply put, a professional DJ should dress appropriately to your event (formal wear for a wedding, etc.); be set up and ready before your guests arrive; use a setup procedure that is unobtrusive, safe and orderly; and treat you, your guests and other vendors with respect. He/she should be polite and able to handle adversity in a calm, unobtrusive manner.

Your DJ/MC should be able to speak in a clear, concise, easy to understand manner. They must be able to introduce you and your guests and make announcements that are easy to understand in a noisy room. They should also be able to grab the attention of your guests, and enunciate and project their message with a positive attitude.

There are two basic approaches to DJ’ing. The first is to develop a show that seems to work for the majority of parties and stick to that formula. This is often referred to as “cookie cutter” DJ’ing. It is most often seen executed by less experienced entertainers who are still finding themselves.

The other approach is to use a well organized “flexible planning” format with a variety of options. In this approach, the Client decides what special events they do or do not want. They also choose a limited number of songs (usually 10-20) that they feel would be appreciated by their guests. The DJ can always play other requests, using discretion as to what is appropriate to the spirit of the event. The key to this approach is to balance the preferences of the Client with those of their guests. This is most often utilized by the more experienced entertainers.

Professional DJ/MCs should always provide written agreements for their services. It provides legal protection for both parties and gives your DJ/MC the information they needs to entertain your guests properly.

The contract/agreement should include the following:

  • The name of the DJ (Vendor) and the name of the person responsible for payment (Client).
  • The venue name, address, contact person, date and time of the reception, including starting and ending time
  • The details of services provided by the Vendor
  • The details of services provided by the Client
  • The total price to be paid for the DJ’s services
  • When payment of the balance is due
  • Overtime Details

Usually a deposit and a FUNCTION BOOKING SHEET are required to “book ” your date.
The FUNCTION BOOKING SHEET should note your deposit payment and the balance due.

  • Preparation of a running sheet. We discuss this with you in-depth, taking into account timing of formalities, meal times and the venue’s own schedule. 

  • Music selections for your formalities. Listen to popular songs for bridal entry, cake cutting, bridal waltz, bouquet toss, garter removal, garter toss, farewell circle, and farewell song.

  • Request songs you want (or don’t want) played on the night. Viewing of our large range of special effects and creative lighting we have on display. You can choose what lighting & special effects you want to include in your package.

John from Pro DJs Australia was nothing short than perfect on our big day! And ever prior to it! Being a LGBTQIA+ couple we were concerned about finding an accepting DJ/MC for our big day, but John welcomed us with open arms. We had so many questions, bridal fever and worry, John helped us through every emotion! On the day John was so accommodating and working within the brides to make sure the day was how we wanted and fit within time! The app to organise songs for the day was so user friendly and John was so entertaining throughout our reception as DJ/MC. If we ever have an event again we would have John back to entertain us all!

Chloe W.

Pro DJ's Australia

Chloe and Neshlie, I'm deeply touched by the wonderful live review you shared on your wedding day. Thank you for entrusting me with the role of your Wedding DJ and MC for your stunning wedding day. Being a part of your journey from planning to execution filled me with immense joy, and witnessing the enchanting moments as you celebrated with your loved ones was truly heartwarming. Engaging with your guests brought me pure delight, and witnessing their enthusiastic dance moves, even in the warm sunlight-filled room, added an extra layer of beauty to the celebration. May your joy know no bounds, your happiness be infinite, and may your love for each other continue to deepen and flourish with each passing day. Sending you both heartfelt, warm, and affectionate hugs, John @ Pro DJs Australia.

March 2024

John was an amazing DJ on our wedding night! He was super communicative throughout the whole process and we felt comfortable with the plan of action till our wedding day. The use of the Vibo app to build playlist was super convenient and easy to use. He has such an inviting atmosphere and the way he organised and changed from each songs to match each event on the night was so seamless. Loved that he added background music to our scavengers hunt - really got everyone in the mood! The lighting, set up and tunes had everyone on the dance floor till the end of the night! Wouldn't have had so much fun without him - No regrets!

Tammy & Sunny, your heartfelt review fills me with joy! Being part of your wedding journey was an absolute honor and delight. From the moment we started planning to the last dance of the night, every moment was filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories. The energy on the dance floor was electrifying, and it was a true pleasure to share in the celebration with you, and all your loved ones. Thank you for trusting me to be your wedding DJ—it means the world to me. As you both embark on this beautiful journey as Mr. and Mrs., I send you nothing but the warmest and sincerest wishes. May your love continue to blossom and shine brightly, forever and always. Sending you both big, warm loving hugs. John @ Pro DJs Australia

December 2023

We had John as our DJ and MC for our wedding at the Grounds of Alexendria in December 2023. To summarise every second of the six hours that we spent with John on the night, it was literally PERFECTION. And it wasn’t just on the day, John has been incredibly helpful during the preparation (run sheet, music etc) both in the lead up and months in advance. His attention to detail is unmatched, and his proactive approach has made the wedding planning much less stressful. To put it this way, if it wasn’t for John’s help and detailed step-by-step guide, we could have had a whole lot more that we need to deal with on the day. John was extremely friendly and funny, he created a few games for our wedding and the guests had a great time playing, what an awesome atmosphere. And everything went so smoothly, and John

Pro DJ's Australia

WOW! Thank you so very much for your heart warming and most amazing review Riley and Meggie. We truly had so much fun in our zoom catch ups, so many laughs and always a true delight in sharing our time together throughout your planning process. I could not wait to entertain at your wedding. Getting in early and trying to bump in as the previous event was clearing out, I just wanted to make sure everything was perfect for you. Your guests were all so amazing and lovely to interact and engage with . The table closest to me though I was a mafia boss. lol. Even seeing Carla (one of your guests) there on the night who I had DJ'd and MC'd her wedding 10 years ago was such a highlight for me too. The games were alot of fun and so many memorable moments we all shared with some much love flowing in the Atrium on the night too. I truly wish we do cross paths some time soon, and wish you and Meggie the one blessed union together bounded by one true love that will last always - together - forever!

July 2024

I can't thank John enough for the service on the night of being our DJ and MC. He took care of everything for us and covered things that we didn't know we need to do. The game suggest for the night was a massive hit and would highly suggest for all weddings.

Jodie R.

Pro DJ's Australia

Thank you so much for your glowing review! I'm thrilled to hear that I was able to make your wedding night so memorable and stress-free.

It's always wonderful when those unexpected touches add an extra layer of fun and enjoyment to the celebration. Your satisfaction means the world to us, and we're grateful to have been a part of your special day. Wishing you and Glen all the best in this new chapter of your life together!

March 2024

It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with John for our wedding. He was our fantastic DJ and MC for our reception. John has the gift of being able to put you at ease and enjoy a few laughs. Upon meeting John we felt our guests and ourselves would be in great hands and we all were. The dance floor was packed until the very last song and our guests said what a great wedding it was and so much fun. The Vibo app was easy to use and the communication from John was great, and I could run any questions past him. No stress at all. We also got uplighting with added to the ambiance in the room. I’ve had in my head for a long time what my wedding reception would be like and John helped make this happen! Look no further !

What are your favourite songs to play at a wedding?

We're starting to think about song choices for our wedding. I'm curious about what songs musicians love to play at weddings (vs the cliched ones they get asked about!). Would love to hear your personal favourites?

Pro DJ's Australia

Thank you for asking such a great question.

We prefer to make our couples and their guests happy at weddings. Having many years of excperience in building atmosphere on dancefloors comes with being able to reasd the crowd and knowing what to play when to play to creat a fun filled dancefloor at your wedding. Therefore, what our favouite songs to play at a wedding is not that important. It's what songs you wish to have played and what songs will get yours guests running to the dancefloor that is important to the success of your wedding.

In addition to this, as you know not all weddings are the same. So if we were to playt what songs we like to play it would not suit every crowd too.

Personally, I love played all the party bangers from all the genres and blend them seamlessly transitioning from one song to another with no breaks live on the night too. The genres we cater for start from 50's Rock N Roll | 60's Pop, Brit Pop, Rock n Roll, Motown, Rock | 70's Disco, Funk, Pop, Rock | 80's Funk, Disco, Hi NRG, Pop, Dance, New Wave, Rock, Glam Rock | RnB Old School, Cheesy, Pop, Dance, Rock, Techno, Trance, Alternative and Grunge | 00's Top 40, RnB, Hip Hop, House, Commercial Dance, Trance, Techno, Rock | 10's   Top 40, RnB, Hip Hop, House, Commercial Dance, Trance, Techno, Rock.

Would you like for me to send you a playlist of the Top 200 Songs selected by couples througout 2021? - These are all the party bangers.

Warm Regards,

John @ Pro DJs Australia

 

What questions should we ask when choosing a wedding band or DJ?

Pro DJ's Australia

1) HOW DID YOU MEET?

 

Your DJ should be asking to meet both of you, ask questions about you, and get to know you before you even begin to discuss your reception requirements. In return, getting to know, and actually liking, your DJ will make your event go a lot smoother, so make sure you’re comfortable with them.

 

2) WHAT ARE THE NAMES OF THE FAMILY BRIDAL PARTIES?

 

Equally as important as knowing you, is knowing the names and pronunciations of the bridal party and key family members. Your DJ should confidently be called on to prepare your guests if they’re making a toast or being announced during the event. A personable DJ can build a rapport that makes all the difference.

 

3) WHERE IS YOUR CHOSEN VENUE?

 

Your DJ may not be familiar with your reception venue and if it’s a bit further afield, then travel costs or even overnight accommodation might need to be added to your quote. However, a seasoned pro DJ might have worked in your venue before at similar events, so they’ll already have contacts and a lot of background info to help your event go smoothly.

 

4) WOULD YOU LIKE US TO VISIT THE VENUE BEFOREHAND?

 

It’s always worth your DJ making a visit to the venue, even if they have worked there on previous events. Having them contact the venue directly to meet the venue team means they can familiarise themselves with the layout and facilities. They may even have technical questions they need answering themselves.

 

5) WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM YOUR EVENT?

 

While you might have a definite plan of how you want your event to go, your DJ might have other ideas. By asking this, your DJ or their company can make sure your DJ is perfectly suited to deliver exactly what you want on the night.

 

6) WHO ARE YOUR GUESTS?

 

Your DJ won’t need a list of guests names of course. But giving them general information on how many people will be in attendance, whether they’re family, friends or a mix of both, and their age range will help your DJ adapt your event music and entertainment accordingly.

 

7) WHAT ENTERTAINMENT WILL YOUR GUESTS LIKE?

 

Your guests might like an evening of loud, banging tunes with lavish lighting and visual effects if they’re a younger age group. However, older guests might not appreciate that, preferring less intense and more standard entertainment. Getting it right means everyone leaves happy.

 

8) WOULD YOU LIKE ADDITIONAL ENTERTAINMENT?

 

Some DJs may offer additional entertainment beyond standard lights and sounds. This could range from visual effects, LED letters, photo booths, uplighting or even wedding dance floor hire to suit your individual reception. It might be an additional cost, but it could make a spectacular difference!

 

9) HOW MUCH INVOLVEMENT WOULD YOU LIKE FROM YOUR DJ?

 

No one wants a mute DJ on the night, but you do need one who will suit your own event. Whether you want a low-key, respectful emcee-style, or an over the top superstar DJ, your DJ company should be able to adapt their style to you or provide a DJ with relevant experience.

 

10) WHAT ABOUT YOUR MUSICAL TASTES?

 

If your DJ doesn’t ask about this, you could end up with an evening of music that no one likes or dances to – and no one wants that! If you have a definite playlist or even a partial one, make sure you give it to them. That way, the majority of the music on the night will be of your own choosing. But always be open to any suggestions from the pro.

 

11) WHAT IF NO ONE’S DANCING?

 

Though you might love the music you’ve chosen, your tastes might not suit everyone else’s. Let your DJ know that if the dance floor’s empty, they can change the music to get your guests up and dancing. While a DJ should never ignore your playlist, give them the permission to mix it up if they need to.

 

12) IS THERE ANYTHING WE NEED TO BE AWARE OF?

 

This question could encompass any kind of situation. There could be the possibility of drunk guests trying to grab the microphone, or queues of people constantly asking for requests that are not on your playlist. Don’t be offended if your DJ asks you this, and let them know their responsibilities and what’s acceptable.

 

13) IS THERE ANYTHING YOU’D LIKE TO ASK THAT WE HAVEN’T ALREADY COVERED?

 

Though it’s good that you’re answering lots of questions a DJ should ask the bride and groom, it shouldn’t be treated like a one-sided checklist they’re going through. It’s equally as important that you’re given the opportunity to ask them anything else that might not already have been covered – especially about them and their background.

 

14) HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT US?

 

Any DJ and their business should always want to know how you found out about them. Whether it was a referral, a google search, social media or an advert, your answer can tell them that a particular marketing campaign is working.

 

15) HOW DID YOU RATE OUR WEBSITE?

 

If your DJ has a website – and the chances are they have and you’ve checked it out – then they’ll want to know what made you decide to contact them. Was it a particular service or review that persuaded you? Or did their Website give you the confidence you needed? Feedback is crucial to give a better service.

 

As you can see, there are plenty of questions a DJ should ask the bride and groom before the big event. And though this list isn’t exhaustive, if your chosen DJ asks even half of these questions, then it should be one less thing to worry about, making your event go all the more smoothly.

I hope these help.

Warm Regards,

John @ Pro DJs Australia

Is it OK to have a do-not-play list at our wedding?

Hi there. There are some songs I really don't want played at our wedding but I know some of my family will request it. Can I give our DJ a list of these songs - but how do they handle it with the guests? I don't want to offend anyone.

Pro DJ's Australia

Hello, this ia great question.

It is your wedding at the end of the day. 

We encourage that you share a DO NOT PLAY LIST with us before your event.

Should the song get requested, we would discretly approach you on the night and share that it has been requested.

At this stage you may say fine, just play it, but when i an outside. Or you may say , no way you are playing that song.

We would kindly advise the requester that we are unable to play it.

Warm Regards,

John @ Pro Djs Australia
