How to Weed Out The Cheesy and “Fly-By-Night” Disc Jockeys
Trying to sort out through all of your choices of new york  can be, to say the least, a challenge. Selecting a disc jockey involves more than just knowing the style of music you want played; it also involves knowing the role you want the DJ to play in entertaining your guests.
First, make a list of new york djs. Then write down all of the different things that you want your DJ to do. For example, do you just want someone to play music or do you want your DJ to make announcements and play the role of MC?
This list is important, because not every DJ can or will handle all of these responsibilities. Knowing up-front what you expect will make the selection process go much more smoothly and keep your event surprise-free.
Second, know the type of music you want played and make sure the DJ can have that music available.
For example, do you want a mix of music, or do you want it limited to a certain style such as
Dance
Top 40
Oldies
Hip Hop
Keep in mind that “variety music” new york djs are the most expensive because they have to be knowledgeable about many different types of music and must have an inventory of CDs/downloads, not to mention the time they must spend learning and listening to a variety of styles.
While most new york djs cannot provide potential clients with a comprehensive list of the music they own, especially if their music collection is large and constantly updated, many list what they have in their collection on their websites
Also, just because new york djs have the music, that doesn’t mean they will bring their entire collection to your event. As such, find out upfront how much music they bring with them to events like yours and make sure it’s enough. And if you want something specific, be sure to request it.
Make sure the DJ you hire is willing to be flexible enough to play your requests when appropriate.

Here are a few more tips:
Make sure the DJ has the adequate equipment for your event, particularly if it’s a large event.
Let them know whether your event is indoors, outdoors or both, and whether they will need to move their equipment from one place to another during the event.
If you require specific equipment, i.e. wireless microphone, tape or CD players, lights, fog, bubbles, novelties like inflatable instruments, etc., let the DJ know in advance because not all DJs can provide these.
Ask how much experience the DJ has working events similar to yours.
Match the DJ to venue. For example, if a DJ uses turntables or isn’t using anti-skip CD players, the venue or stage must have a solid foundation or music will skip
In the case of MP3s or downloaded music files, make sure there is a back-up capability in case a hard drive crashes or a file is corrupt.
Does the DJ know how to work with photographers, videographers and related personnel? It’s important that everyone can coordinate their actions so no important moments are missed – don’t take this for granted.
Will the DJ set up equipment before guests arrive? If so, is there an extra fee for this service?
Agree upon the DJ’s attire before the event, and ask if there is an additional fee if formal attire is required.
Verify that the DJ has the proper insurance, which is often required by the event venue.
Finally, make sure you have a signed contract that spells out all the details and be sure to ask for and check references. Taking the time to pick the right DJ will keep your event rockin’.
