What Do Mobile DJs Do?
The answer to this question is not so simple.
A lot of people think that DJs just play the music and occasionally talk over it, but there’s much more to it than that! DJs are responsible for creating an atmosphere at your event, selecting songs appropriate for the audience, and mixing them together in creative ways.
They also have to be able to read the room and know what will get people on their feet or keep things mellow depending on what you’re looking for. Throw in some technical knowledge about sound equipment and lighting rigs, plus a little charisma–and voila!–you’ve got yourself one heck of a DJ!
Mobile DJs are an integral part of any event. They provide music and entertainment for all your guests, so you want to make sure you’re hiring someone that is knowledgeable about the industry.
A mobile DJ provides music and entertainment for your event by being a master of ceremonies (MC) and playing music throughout the evening. This person also can ensures that there’s always something happening at your party – whether it be dancing or games – with interactive activities like karaoke, trivia contests, etc. The good DJ will usually play requests from guests as well!
