DJ Hire Melbourne: Getting started

The most exciting part of planning any birthday party, wedding or corporate party is the melting pot of ideas that you’re going to encounter right at the initial phase of planning. Will you have a theme? How many people are likely to come? How much do we have to spend? Where are we going to have it? Is it corporate entertainment?

Inevitably the question of music will arise, and likely early on in the piece.  How do you keep people happy and cater to everyone’s musical taste?

Maybe you know your guests’ preference and you have a band in mind – but how much is that band going to cost you? Are they in budget for you? Unless you’re booking a soloist, you’re easily looking at a bill in excess of $1000 and smaller line-ups don’t always carry the same vibe as a full band. You’re looking for a DJ.

DJ Hire Melbourne: Benefits of a DJ vs Band

Aside from the obvious cost benefit of a DJ Hire Melbourne (they are typically going to be cheaper), there are also numerous other benefits to hiring someone to drive the wheels of steel (or plastic nowadays). Good corporate DJs are able to adapt to many styles of music, they are able to play for many hours on end without tiring, they usually bring all of their equipment, they take requests and have an almost endless array of music to suit all styles.

DJs can also do things that bands simply can’t do. DJs will play the song as it is, as it was recorded, as people know it! Various treatments or versions of songs can be great, but every band will put a slightly different spin on the song even if they have rehearsed it millions of times. Some people just like the song played as it was. More creative DJs (such as in club styles and environments) can do live remixing, and create an almost endless seamless blend of music throughout the night. It’s like a band playing a medley of songs, except for hours on end keeping the dance floor alive without boring breaks! Of course then there’s the obvious distinction that many electronic genres are simply not replicated in an organic band.

Cost, flexibility, style. There are many reasons to choose a DJ  Hire Melbourne over a band.
