I wrote about this topic recently and the response was rather positive. If you haven’t read Part 1, give it a whirl after you’ve read this one.
Let’s dive in!
Place Your DJ Near The Dance Floor
Have you ever been to a big outdoor festival and the sound was a bit…shitty? The closer you get to the stage, the better it sounds. This is despite the incredibly expensive and high-end equipment.
Have you also noticed the vocals have a delay? Especially at large out door political events. Once again, it’s not the fault of the sound man or the equipment, it’s the placement of your ears.
This is why I strongly suggest you allow your DJ to place their speakers near the dance floor, if possible.
The audio quality will be clearer with more bass. It’s really that simple.
I appreciate that some layouts can’t accommodate for this. That’s understandable. However, if you have the means, let those speakers do what they do best.
Serve Dessert After The First Dance
I love a good dessert. Cheesecake is my favourite. However, it’s the least consumed meal of the day. This is why I suggest you serve it after the first dance.
The fact is that a lot of your guests won’t even touch their dessert. You might as well let them hit the dance floor. Chances are, they are more interested in partying than scoffing down a delicious plate of crème brûlée.
Pick A Venue Without Noise Restrictions
I have noticed a few venues are a bit reticent to disclose their noise restrictions. Whilst I feel for them, it’s a shame they aren’t more transparent. In fact, a few musicians and DJs are refusing to perform at a few of these venues. I won’t name anyone, just let it be known that it’s a ‘thing’ that no one is really talking about.
The main problem is that many of these venues have a device that cuts off the power when the sound hits a predefined level. I have seen the power cut out during the first dance. These devices are incredibly sensitive. In fact, they are often triggered by the guests! Yes, even a bit of drunken banter can trip the sound limiter.
Once again, it must be incredibly frustrating for the venue. The sound limiter is generally a requirement for their operating license. I can’t picture any sound-minded manager that would ask for such a device. It’s usually a compromise between the neighbours and local council.
Advantage DJs is perfectly capable of working with these restraints. The point of this article is to help you get more VALUE from your entertainment. If you want to party the night away and enjoy some bull-busting bass tones, I suggest you pick a venue that can allow it.
