Another happy couple had their wedding.  Our 1st Wedding in 2021! Even During The Pandemic, Love Still Prevails. Originally, the wedding was supposed to take place at venue in Austin. We heard the news about a few weeks before the wedding that the venue isn't allowed to host their wedding anymore because of Covid. In a rush to figure out next plans, the couple was able to find a private estate in Austin to host their wedding day.

Another happy couple had their wedding.  It was an absolutely amazing event.  Caitlin & Joseph really wanted to maximize the dancing on their wedding day so we started early, before dinner even, getting the dance floor packed and making it a little more hype than typical.  We got everyone up and dancing with them immediately after their first dance and then after salads were passed and yet again after the Mother/Son dance.  We had a crazy, insane and packed dance floor all night.  The bride and groom ended the night with a private last dance after all of their guests left to prepare for the grand exit.  It was very, very sweet!

Another happy couple had their wedding.  The bride and groom are two of the nicest people that we have had the honor of working with and it was a lot of fun to provide some Beauty & the Beast inspired music as well as some other classics to set the mood for the evening.  The crazy thing was that no one involved with the wedding has any local ties. We were lucky enough to be a part of a great vendor team that really worked hard to make these out of towners feel welcome and make their wedding perfect.  This was a very special wedding to be a part of.

Austin DJ: Party DJ vs. an iPod or CD Player

Austin DJ: Party DJ vs. an iPod or CD Player

It is easy to think that you can replace an Austin DJ service with a CD player but an Austin DJ provides more than just music. An Austin DJ helps set the atmosphere of a party. A great party DJ will be able to keep the audience engaged by responding to their musical requests and providing friendly conversation. The DJs choice of music and talents at reading a crowd will help to create the atmosphere of your event. Through the use of the right type of music at an appropriate volume your DJ will provide the backdrop to many activities such as gift-opening at a bir

Playing a radio at a party may seem like the easy option but you run the risk of boring your guests with unwanted advertisements and announcements by radio DJs or offending them with inappropriate songs. Of course you can avoid these problems by hiring a party DJ who will play music chosen in advance and interact with the crowd in the manner you require and of course will not play any adverts.

Often DJs will bring their own disco lights. If you want your party to be a success, make sure you hire an Austin DJ. The service includes all the music and entertainment as well as high quality professional equipment to ensure the perfect party atmosphere. For an unforgettable experience there is not much that can beat a live DJ mixing your favorite tunes. It is certainly way beyond the effect a boombox can provide. If you want to transform your simple gathering into the event of the century make sure you engage the services of a quality party DJ.

If you’ve been handed the task of providing the entertainment for a friend’s birthday party or organizing an evening of activities for a wedding reception make sure that your first port of call is a quality party DJ. The addition of DJ music to your event will overawe your family, friends and co-workers.

When you hire an Austin DJ they may also help you with the event planning as well as give you recommendations on suppliers and other party vendors. A good party DJ will have a professional yet fun-loving attitude as well as a willingness to help you with all the aspects of your event. However, at the end of the day you’ll get the credit for finding and hiring such a talented individual.

Austin DJ: The Function of a Party DJ

Austin DJ:  The Function of a Party DJ

For any party DJ their first job is supplying the music. A good Austin DJ will know when the music needs to be loud and when it needs to be quiet, for example during a speech or a meal. Knowledge regarding the placement and operation of equipment is also important in a good Austin DJ, who will know how to place equipment so that it is out of the way but still works effectively. Before the actual day of the event invite your party DJ to view the space so that he can work out how best to utilize the room.

Your Austin DJ can do more besides spinning discs. Your Austin DJ may also be a talented MC, so check to see if they can MC your event. This is a role that DJs hired for professional award ceremonies or wedding receptions are used to filling and means that they will be directing and introducing the entertainment for the evening. Your Austin DJ will introduce various sections of the event such as musical acts, speakers or even games and also make announcements. All these functions make up the role of MC or ‘master of ceremonies’.

The presence of a professional and accomplished speaker at a professional function or wedding reception can not be underestimated. As the MC your lively Austin DJ may be able to help timid speakers out with their speeches or even turn a potentially boring awards ceremony into an entertaining evening. You can also experiment with genres, for example, an Austin DJ mixing old ‘30s songs into the play list may add an interesting twist to a friend’s birthday. A techno DJ, may be an inspiration at an offi

Your Austin DJ may also be a skilled event planner. As well as DJing they may be willing to help you coordinate other aspects of your event, other acts for example or basic needs like caterers and drivers. When you’re trying to coordinate all the elements of a large event having someone to help you out can be a big relief. Working in the party industry means that DJs have access to a variety of party supplies vendors and service providers and are often able to make recommendations. This way your Austin DJ is more than just a service person, they are a helpful connection to the ‘party service’ network.

The key function of an Austin DJ is the injection of enough energy into an event to turn it from a gathering of awkward people into a lively party. When you are choosing an Austin DJ, make sure you have them perform a ‘test run’ for you and a few friends in your chosen party space. This will allow you to gauge at first hand the personality, voice and energy of your chosen DJ. You may also want to consider the style of your event, one particular Austin DJ may be perfect for your friends wedding reception but you may need a different Austin DJ for your mother’
