There are few things as imperative to a successful event as music. Even when the food is delicious, the venue is stunning, and the turnout is great, the soundtrack to the event can make or break the atmosphere. When it comes to creating the perfect mood, there’s nothing quite like a professional event DJ. These experts know exactly how to keep the rhythm going throughout the event and ensure everyone is having a great time.
With Complete Weddings + Events on your side, finding the perfect wedding DJs in Columbia, MO is easy. Leave the details and planning to us so you can enjoy your big event!
With a million decisions to make for your event, it might be tempting to dial up the first search result for an event or wedding DJ in Columbia, Missouri near me and hire them on the spot. The downside? Not every professional DJ service is appropriate for every kind of event.
If you’re hoping to plan a one-of-a-kind party with music catered to your theme and formality level, you’re going to want to find a special event DJ in Columbia, MO with experience working your type of event. Your event is special, and we think the person you select to DJ the party should be special, too!
As you prepare to make a decision on which all events DJ in Columbia to hire, it’s worth considering a few important factors. For one, you’ll want to decide on the mood you’re hoping to create. A disc jockey without any instruction on what to play may opt to play their own personal favorites – which could be a good or bad thing, depending on your outlook!
Be sure to ask each candidate for their vision for the event and see how they handle your feedback. While you’re at it, consider posing each of these questions to prospective DJ hires:
Music has a way of setting the tone for an event. Walking into an event space feels very different when there is classical music playing versus rock or hip hop. This can be especially true when hiring a corporate event DJ instead of a wedding and events DJ in Columbia, Missouri. Ask your DJ how they intend to create a mood with their playlist, and how their vision for the atmosphere aligns with your own to create the best possible experience.
Disc jockeys often have complex backgrounds, working in the streets with up-and-coming musicians while also performing sets at local events and parties. Ask each DJ you meet with about their experience.
How many years have they been at it? Have they worked on your kind of event before? How confident are they in their ability to achieve your goals for the evening?
Whether you’re searching for someone to get folks dancing or provide emcee services for the party, it’s a good idea to ask about each candidate’s background.
Guests generally love the chance to request their favorite songs and tear up the dance floor. Some Columbia DJs, however, prefer not to take song requests, especially if they’re working towards a specific goal or mood. If you feel strongly one way or another about song requests, be sure to ask your DJ about their policy. It’s also worth creating a list of songs you need played during the event, and any songs you don’t want to hear that day!
When sitting down to chat about options with a local DJ company, the person you meet with may not necessarily be the DJ who works your event. Clarify this before agreeing to work with anyone. Know who to expect, whether they’ll bring along an assistant, and if there is a safety net in place should the DJ drop out unexpectedly.
If you have a specific vision for the attire of vendors working your event, be sure to ask about their uniform policy, too! Control for surprises whenever you can, and you’ll have a more relaxed experience on the day of your event.
Electrical outlets are in serious demand at parties, so it’s a good idea to ask about the needs of the DJ while you’re still in the planning phases. A top-notch Columbia DJ should be able to give you an idea of how much space their equipment will take up and where in your venue is the best location for them to set up.

“The Compelete Wedding and Event team of Columbia Missouri went above and beyond all our expectations for our wedding day. We used all five services. Brandon was our project manager and communicated early on about our wants and needs. He was very accessible to answer any and all questions we had. Joe, our DJ blew us away with his service. He met with us prior to the big day to get to know us and what type of atmosphere we wanted for the reception. He nailed out a decent playlist for our music and discussed the lighting we wanted. Not only did he do the duties of the DJ, but made sure the evening ran smoothly so my husband and I could enjoy our time with our loved ones. This included making my plate for me and getting a second plate for my husband. He even bussed the tables and made sure my guests were happy and enjoying themselves as well! The Photobooth was a big hit and Taylor made sure everyone got a copy of their keepsake and brought fun props to use. The videographer and photographer truly captured the day and made sure everyone was smiling and laughing throughout the day. I cannot thank this team enough!” – Makayla H.
