DJ Styles

You Can Tell Mike How To DJ Your Wedding

When hiring a DJ for the first time, most people are not aware that they can tell their DJ how to present themselves and their music entertainment. Therefore, Mike explains the three basic styles and a way to express them to any Wedding DJ you might hire.

• The Normal Wedding DJ style – Be Pleasant and Nice.
Smile, do introductions and announcements, occasionally say nice things. Talking is done in a positive today is your special day type voice. Don't be boring, everything done in good taste. This style offers the most flexibility during a reception. Your DJ will be able to play more song requests from the bride & groom, family, wedding party, important guests.

• The Low Profile style – mostly just play music.
Basically, no talking on the microphone except for required announcements or planned introductions (if any). If intro or announcements are required, it is done in a clear, monotone respectful voice. This style favors strict time lines and pre-formatted whole reception song playlists.

• The Party Style – Like a Bar Dance Club.
Dance music is the highest priority, keeping people on the dance floor. This usually means loud music, very few or no song requests from bride & groom, family and wedding party. DJ actively motivates people with an MC voice done in a very upbeat everybody party now! type voice.

Mike's DJ Music

Lots of Variety Music: Popular Dance, Classic Rock, Country, Motown, Oldies, Hip Hop, more. Uptown Funk, Wobble, Cupid Shuffle, Cha-Cha Slide (Casper Slide), The Hustle (My Eyes Don't Cry), Sinatra, Elvis, Kid Rock, Bob Seger, AC/DC, Beyoncé, Pitbull, The Supremes, The Temptations, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, etc.

Observers – Watching Mike On-The-Job

Watch him only at public events, not at another person's wedding.

Mike does not invite strangers (observers) to weddings because he firmly believes that your wedding is private and only the people you invite should be there. People who hire Mike expect him to work for them, respect their privacy and not use their private moments as public auditions.

He considers it improper to have uninvited strangers attending other people's private affairs. He's sure that you would expect that same consideration from any DJ you might hire. Example: would you be willing to have all uninvited strangers who want to observe Mike attend your wedding? Of course not.

But some DJ services do allow strangers, usually called observers or watchers – people you don't know, the DJs don't know, were not invited by you, but invited by the DJs to watch them work at private events. By bringing observers, they are using your private wedding as a public audition.

If comparing DJ services and want to include those that allow observers, Mike has important legal advice for youclick here. After learning how to protect yourself regarding observers, click your Back button to return to this page.

If you want to see Mike on-the-job, it will have to be at a public allowed event. To find out if he will be working an event where the public is invited, keep an eye on his → Schedule Page
