Most people usually only book a disco three or four times in their lifetime, these three or four discos may be some of the most important evenings of your life, be it your 21st birthday, Engagement party, Wedding, 50th Birthday or retirement party.
The guests at your party will remember if the buffet was exceptional, or that the venue was a great location, but it is the entertainment that will ensure that your party is a success.
People don't book DJs everyday how can you tell what you will be getting for your special day, word of mouth is a great way to hear about the DJs reputation, customer feedback is another option, but by talking to the Dj you will also get a feel of how they will help make your special day memorable.
Here are some of the essential pointers to look for in booking professional DJ entertainment to help your special occasion run as smoothly and as memorable as possible
Most function hire room venues require an entertainer to hold Public Liability Insurance cover.
This indemnifies the venue in the event of an accident claim on the premises should it involve the disco equipment.
Effectively, there needs to be a paper-trail in the event of an accident PLI can be anything from £1m to £5m&.
The venue may ask the entertainer to present a Portable Appliance Test certificate too. The P.A.T. 'certificate' states that the electronic disco equipment used by the Mobile DJ is electrically safe.
So before the DJ ventures on to the venue premises, it is important that he or she holds these requirements and can present or forward copies of as requested.
Where possible, it is advisable to meet your DJ entertainer to discuss the requirements of the day.
When testimonials are available to read or references are offered, please take the time to read and verify that the entertainer mentioned is the actual entertainer in discussion!
Some DJ services actually offer incentives to those wishing to complete bookings and payments in advance of function dates such as this years price for next years wedding which can be a considerable saving.
