Being a DJ is a good business to be in, and Melbourne DJs, amongst the Sydney, Canberra and Perth DJs, have a reputation for being the best in the business. We think it’s because Melbourne itself is a city that has good vibes, is hip, happening, and a city filled with joy, art, music and dance. Melbourne has a Joie de vivre.
DJs do parties, special events, coming of age ceremonies, engagements, weddings, Bar-mitzvahs, and any function really that wants good music, a great atmosphere and to be a success. Some of the best DJs are older and know all genres of music and have a load of experience, plus the right equipment, but there are some amazing new and excellent young DJs. If you’re looking for Melbourne DJ hire you will be spoiled for choice, but always do your research.
What to expect from a DJ
DJs are not as high priced as live bands (well, some world renowned DJs are) and you do want value for money. You’re probably going for a DJ because they’re less expensive than live music but check the price and do a few comparisons. Prices should be reasonable but a lot more than what the kid next door would charge you.
A good DJ needs to know more than music alone. He or she needs a great microphone manner and be good at public speaking too. It’s your DJ who is going to make announcements and do a little talking (not too much) between gigs, so go for the professionals.
You also need to be able to trust your DJ. You want to enjoy the event as much as your guests. Choose one of the Melbourne DJs who you know will play the music you love and that your guests will love, a DJ who can read a crowd (knows when to switch from The Blues to Rock and Roll) and who won’t let you down in any way.
Enjoy the party!
