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 outdoor 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 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 the 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.

I just wanted to pass onto you how incredibly happy we were with our DJ Nick on Saturday! As soon as we entered the reception he came over and introduced himself, and made sure he was always communicating with our MC, photographer and videographer! Nick always asked David or I If it was ok for certain requests from guests, ensuring we would enjoy our music from start to finish which we did!!!

Could not be happier with the service provided my Advantage DJs for our wedding! Nick was so friendly, and so easy and made the process literally seamless. We picked all of our songs for each moment of the day/night and Nick executed them without a hitch. He made sure to touch base with us during the night to ensure everyone was having a good time, and I could not recommend him enough!

Andrew and I had Brendan and Rhys be DJ's at our wedding 1.6.19. These guys were amazing and easy to deal with. They were happy enough to play request for the guest all night and played a great mix of music for everyone to enjoy. Communication was great from start to finish which is important and makes trusting these guys easy and helps for such an important day. Thanks guys! Andrew & Donna x

Brendan from Advantage DJs was everything you would want in a DJ plus MC for your wedding. Very friendly and experienced. He had already set up the microphones, speakers etc before I got there as the celebrant. I would definitely recommend Brendan for your wedding, absolutely first class. The wedding that Brendan did that I attended was at was at Greenfield Farm Estate, Martinsville February 2018.

We used Brendan for our wedding at Pacific Palms, he was amazing. We had a Marquee and lawn games meaning there was a bit of a split between the area's and he had portable speakers for the lawn which was perfect and the wireless mic worked out there as well. Brendan played all the song we asked for and perfectly ordered them to keep the dance floor going. I would highly highly recommend!

We seriously cannot speak highly enough of Brendan from Advantage DJs. From the get go he was so prompt with responses, so helpful, and made everything so easy. We could not be more happy with our decision to have him at our wedding. He was so good that we started a conga line and all our guests got up and involved - he even sent us the video to prove it!! Brendan really did go above and beyond - if you are needing a DJ, look no further than right here.
