Three Dog Night once sang “One is the loneliest number…” and as a DJ, that can sometimes be the truth. You’ve probably heard the phrase “two of something is better than one;” also very true when it comes to being a Wedding & Event DJ. As DJs, quite often, we don’t only take on the role of playing the music; there are so many more things that we do WHILE playing the music…like…(Ace Ventura deep breath in)
- working with other vendors
- assisting Wedding MCs
- actually acting as the Wedding MC
- performing Wedding Party introductions
- speaking with guests
- taking requests
There are a lot more things I could throw up there but I think you get my point. All of the things I listed could pull me away from the music and this is why I have found it important to always have a second DJ with me at an event. I didn’t always have this way of thinking; up until last year, I thought that I could do it all by myself…I could handle everything on that list alone.
I Changed the Way I Thought
Right now you’re thinking “here comes the story about how a catastrophic event changed his way of thinking”…Nope. I was always able to handle everything just fine and provide my clients with great service. What ACTUALLY changed my way of thinking was another DJ asking if I was available to assist him at an event. I was available so I said “why not?” (side note: working along side another veteran DJ is also a great way to get new insight and ideas to up your game). I went with him and saw how much easier it made his ability to do all of the things I listed above…just by knowing that I was there to handle anything music oriented when he wasn’t available to.
So, I’m gonna do something now that MOST Wedding DJs WON’T do in a blog post or Facebook post…I wanna give a shout out to DJ Donny Lovering for changing my mindset and giving me an idea as to how I can better serve my clients by being able to give them that extra attention that they deserve.
What’s Important To You?
