A wedding DJ can make or break your reception and the cost of a DJ directly represents how much fun you and your guests have! A lower price does not mean a better deal. A great wedding DJ does more than plan music:
- Announce your grand entrance
- Wrangle guests for toasts and dinner
- Coordinate speeches
- Announce special dances
- Act as a wedding coordinator
- Keep your reception on time
- Communicate with vendors and guests
Investing 8-10% of your wedding budget on your DJ is actually a great value, considering that the DJ is responsible for handling 80% of your wedding reception. When deciding how much you can afford for entertainment, first think about how much you can afford to lose if your entertainment is poor or mediocre.
First and foremost, a wedding DJs job is to make sure you and your guests have fun. They do this by keeping your wedding reception running on time and the dance floor packed. Our professional DJs read the room to make sure guests of all ages are enjoying the music. In addition, our wedding DJs serve as a Master of Ceremony; a professional host who keeps your reception on track. They also make sure your other wedding vendors are working together so your wedding vision becomes a reality.
You definitely don’t want to hire a wedding DJ without thoroughly vetting them first. That‘s a lot of work. The good news is, Mike Staff Productions has done the work for you. We’ve already done the background checks, we’ve already talked to references, we’ve already asked all the questions, we’ve already shadowed, extensively worked with, and gotten to know each of our team members’ personalities—which means we’ve eliminated the duds.

Absolutely. ALL couples agree that your DJ can make or break your wedding reception, which means your wedding DJ is one of the most important factors of your wedding planning. Music also sets the tone & mood for other important parts of your wedding; ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner. Great wedding DJs also keep your wedding on time by coordinating with other vendors and making announcements and introductions. This is not a job for an amateur. Hire a professional DJ.
- How much experience do you have?
- Have you ever played at my venue?
- What is your back-up plan if you get sick or can’t make it?
- Does the DJ serve as the Host / MC?
- How do you get people to dance?
- What do you do if a guest requests a “weird” song?
- Can I plan the details of my reception with you, personally?
- Can you provide sound and music for my ceremony?
Having a Back Up Plan.
One of the most important things you can find out before hiring, does that wedding DJ have a back up plan in case of emergency?
- Back-up sound gear on-site in the event of an equipment malfunction
- DJ on-call in case of emergencies or unforeseen events.
- Let’s be real, emergencies happen and a DJ may not be able to make it to your wedding through no fault of their own, such as an accident or medical emergency.
A professional company will have a well thought out emergency plan and have paid DJ’s on-call and ready to go. Remember, the worst possible thing that can happen is for your DJ not to show up or have their equipment fail during your reception.
