Why am I passionate about being a wedding dj. Why am I not trying my hand at the club circuit. Why do I deal with the calls and constant meetings with nervous or stressed out brides.
Because I am a DJ that cares!
I know I am helping you create a memory you will never forget. When you are 70 years old talking to your husband. You can tall about the playlist that started off your marriage. Through the years when you hear a certain song, you will think of something special. You will remember your first dance with your father. You will remember your cousin making a fool of himself to "Funky Cold Medina".
I will be honest being a wedding dj is hard work. The countless consultations, setting up, non stop work, then breaking down. I wouldn't trade it for anything at all. My energy comes from my clients. When I see the bride and groom dancing, laughing, and smiling. I know I did my job right.
I don't play certain songs or mix crazy mash ups so you can remember me. I am not on the microphone screaming my name every 30 mins self promoting. Being an obnoxious egotistical DJ is not in my blood. It's not about me, I do mash ups and play certain songs to make sure you get an experience that you will never forget.
My Job starts way before the wedding my job starts when you make that phone call to check out my prices. Or a friend recommended you. It doesn't matter were talking no. We are in this, my job is to figure out your pain points.
Communicate with wedding vendors.
This is a stressful time for the bride and groom. If they have any question or need help with venue's, finding a photographer, I do my best to help them. I love to coordinate with the other vendors so we are all on the same page so we can have a smooth day. To focus on whats important, the bride and groom.
To be honest no wedding is perfect. Situations will arise, I do my best to help them. Some clients call me the "Cleaner". I solve problems if I can. If the best man is missing, I'll find him. If the bridesmaid is crying in the bathroom I can calm her down.
You see its so much more than me coming in. Setting up my equipment and pressing play. Its the experience I enjoy. Its the thought of knowing that I helped add to the soundtrack of your life. That will never be forgot.
So I say this when you are hiring a dj for your wedding. Make sure they are invested in your experience. Ask them about back up equipment. See if they have a plan if they have an emergency on your big day.
Wedding DJ's we are more than a playlist machine....
My goal is to change the stigma of being a wedding dj. Reinvent what we do. Create those memories, so the guest will say that was an amazing wedding. Not that DJ was awesome, or that DJ talked to much. Because its not about me. Its about YOU!
So if you are looking for someone to assist your in your wedding and play some great tunes. Please give me a call, and lets set up your consultation so we can start your wedding planning off right.
Angelo "Olympus DJ Services" Burris.
Your wedding DJ is essential with regards to the stream and general feel of your enormous day. That is the reason it's imperative to ensure you do your examination and pick carefully.
1. What are some great things to ask a DJ before enlisting them?
- How early does the DJ arrive?
- What is your method should the DJ get in a mischance while in transit to the occasion?
- Is there a reinforcement DJ? What happens on the off chance that you arrive and acknowledge you have a flawed speaker?
- What happens if your PC separates amidst the night?
- Do you play tunes live or would you say you are simply tossing on an iTunes playlist or computerized DJ program (which anybody can utilize)?
- Are you shouting on the mouthpiece continually or is it proficient, insignificant and enlightening when required?
- Do you play the cliché wedding tunes (YMCA, Celebration, We Are Family, Macarena, and so forth… ) or will you make my wedding extraordinary and exceptional?
- Will you take demands from the visitors for the duration of the night and by what means will you channel those to harmonize with the lady of the hour and grooms' tastes?
- Do you play melodies with unequivocal verses?
- Do you adhere to the course of events times particularly or do you curve and shape the night to fit the group as required (and how)?
2. Would you be able to make a playlist or advise the DJ what to play and what not to play?
A decent expert DJ ought to ALWAYS provide great music for the occasion to the clients and visitors. HE/SHE isn't there to flaunt their melodic tastes. Truly, a great DJ will include their own style and flavor to assemble the night musically, yet at last the client and visitors are the ones the DJ is playing for and any suitable demands or 'don't plays' ought to be respected over the long haul.
3. What songs do you have to choose for your DJ before the wedding?
Every single particular song for introductions, and so forth., should be chosen before the wedding. To the extent the mixed drink, supper, and moving music is concerned it truly relies upon the DJ. A few DJs need to have all their music prepared to go before the occasion. Be that as it may, as to have a general thought of what the client needs, and in addition the ages, ethnicity, dress, and measure of liquor devoured by the visitors. I jump at the chance to have a general thought and afterward show up and read the group likewise. I most likely get ready for the client and visitors identities more than I do the music that I will play. Be that as it may, each DJ is distinctive with this. After more than 30 long stretches of DJing weddings the off the cuff choices are somewhat less demanding for me than others.
4. What are a portion of your most loved first dance songs?
I could list a million tunes that are extraordinary for a first move, yet I feel that song should be something unique for the couple. Once more, I propose they avoid the cliché ones that everybody appears to utilize (Etta James – At Last, Louis Armstrong – Wonderful World, and so forth) and pick something extraordinary to them.
5. What are a portion of your minimum most loved wedding tunes?
Back to the cliché gooey wedding melodies… I don't care for these on the grounds that they are so exaggerated. There are an excessive number of individuals who call themselves a DJ and depend on these line moves and tunes that are continually exaggerated at weddings to get individuals moving. I endeavor to make my wedding extraordinary to the couple and visitors. Indeed, I can drop in The Wobble or Cupid Shuffle if the visitors or couple need it, however those sorts of tunes are not the ones I am tingling to haul out as a DJ. I don't feel that you generally need to have a pressed move floor if it's not really a moving group (more established, out of towers, and so forth… ). The music ought to be played suitably to the temperament and vibe of the group. Moving ought to NEVER be constrained by playing a cliché exaggerated 'wedding tune.'
6. In what capacity can a couple guarantee that their wedding gathering is a good time for everybody going to?
Contract A PROFESSIONAL DJ and DO NOT SKIMP on this. There are two things I tell individuals always when taking a gander at a DJ and estimating. 1) You get what you pay for and 2) If it sounds pipe dream, it presumably is. You will be greatly improved of finding and spending some additional cash on an expert DJ who needs to become more acquainted with you and thinks about you and your group and WANTS to remain in contact with you than you will a person who has an incredibly low cost. This could be all the more, however in the event that you go much lower in value you are yielding your quality and once the wedding is finished, you can't recover that quality. The DJ can represent the deciding moment your wedding as they are the person who sees the whole room, as well as controls it. Discover somebody you associate with who really minds that your day goes off without a blemish.
Thanks to Spotify automatic playlist and mixing, anyone can have a pretty epic party. I could go on a rant on how have your friend dj your party by pressing play on spotify, or searching songs on youtube is bad for your event or wedding. But let me give you a few reason why you should hire one of Chattanooga's best DJ Service.
Do I need a DJ? Here’s 7 arguments for hiring a pro.

7. They’re dependable and know how to communicate
A professional DJ has a reputation to uphold and, barring a catastrophic emergency, won’t let you down when the big day comes around (and even then, they’d probably find a great colleague to cover your event). A professional DJ will also respond promptly to your emails and calls, working with you before, during, and after the event to ensure your needs are met.
