Sorry for the delay. Been a busy week. Part 4 of my blog series “The Right DJ For Your Wedding” has to explain a lot of the situations that cause a bride and groom to be embarrassed by their DJ.
You’d like a mild mannered “professional” acting DJ, especially as he or she needs to make announcements. Talking to a true professional DJ is usually a good indication of how they will sound at your wedding. I might be one of the biggest proponents of the “Anti-Cheesy” DJ in Charleston. There are some DJs who show up to your wedding thinking they need to perform and put on a show and actually entertain guests with an auctioneer voice or game-show persona. An overly-hyped tacky and cheesy voice during the announcement of your bridal party is often one of these times where they like to show-off. After many years of being behind the mic on the radio, it is my firm belief that the best DJs have former or present radio experience. Look for this when you book your DJ. We know how to mix music and most importantly are more disciplined on the microphone than the club DJ who is more likely to say "Put your hands in the air, grandma is in the house!"
It's approaching late October here in Charleston and we're in the midst of another busy Fall season with Mike Bills Entertainment. Lingering not too far away is the kick off of yet another engagement season. At the beginning of your engagement, you are thinking about so much. Who to invite? Where to have your wedding ceremony and reception? Who to hire for the catering? The flowers? Who are you going to hire as your DJ or band? If you are thinking about a band, then you are free to leave this blog post and there is actually a company on my preferred vendors page on my main site who will point you in the right direction of the perfect band for your wedding night. If you are hiring a DJ, then stay right here because this blog post will kick off a series of posts educating all brides and grooms just how important it is to hire the right DJ for your wedding ceremony and reception in Charleston.
Christina & Trey came to me earlier this year after meeting me at the Charleston Bridal Show, which was held downtown at the Gaillard Center in January. After the bridal show, my company sent out literature to prospective brides who were seeking a DJ for their Charleston wedding. By mid February, we met and they had decided to book with me.
