Tips To Hire A DJ in South Jersey

Looking for tips on hiring a DJ in South Jersey?  Many times when hiring DJ entertainment for an affair, clients ask, “What do you play?” or “How much do you charge?” Hiring a disc jockey is far more involved. Many of our clients are shopping for a disc jockey for the first time in their lives, and are not experienced in asking the right questions. We at Marsdale Productions encourage you to look into several companies in order to give you an idea where we stand up to the competition.


What questions should you ask your DJ before hiring?

  • How much input will you have in the music selection?
  • Will I get to meet with and consult with my disc jockey?
  • How long have you been in business?
  • Will the DJ be able to coordinate the party and act as master of ceremonies?
  • Will the DJ be properly attired for the event?
  • Does the DJ have the knowledge to handle the proper protocol for all types of affairs?
  • Will the DJ take requests from my guests?
  • Does the company you’re dealing with use the most up to date sound systems and technology available?
  • In the event of equipment failure, is there a back-up system readily available?
  • Will the company provide references?
  • Will the disc jockey be able to provide diversified music selections to please your guests?
  • Will the company be flexible to your needs?


How Do Our Disc Jockeys Do It?

Mom loves Frank Sinatra, Dad loves rock & roll, aunts, uncles and grandparents love big band, you like contemporary.


Mixing music that will appeal to a diverse age group is a true art. With over two decades of experience and several thousand parties in our books, one constant holds true: there are no two events that are the same. Each group of guests takes on its own personality. What may work at one party may mean disaster at the next. That is why we are confident in our ability to “read a crowd.” If the crowd responds to “Respect” from Aretha Franklin, chances are pretty good that “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” will work as well. We will continue to program the type of music that the guests respond to.

We work with the understanding that there are approximately sixty songs that will be played during the dance portion of your event. This is why we feel that there should be a concerted effort to program those songs that transcend age differences. Songs like “Twist and Shout,” “In The Mood” and “I Will Survive” are timeless.

Creating the correct transitions from song to song coupled with your suggestions and your guests requests will ensure that your event is a success with Marsdale Productions.
