This DJ buying guide is for entertainers whose customers are hosting private parties, weddings, bar mitzvahs and any other celebratory event. Private event DJs are a completely different breed from club DJs for a number of reasons. One way the two are so different is that the private event DJ is accountable for supplying equipment for the event, such as lighting, speakers, microphones, and projectors. As a result, event DJs are accountable for much more as any technical problems on on them. For example, some of your equipment may fail in the middle of the event and you'll need to get through it since stopping the entertainment is not an option. Solving the problem may be as simple as swapping out a cable, but other times it can be more serious or even out of your control. Your job as the event DJ is to anticipate every problem and have a appropriate solution ready. Believe it or not, some DJs pack complete backup rigs in the event of equipment failure so that should give you some idea of just how serious this business is. Read on to discover the many ways you can prepare for your gigs and find out what event DJ products are a necessity for your success!
