I consider every event I do as a big party that I’m trying to make great.”
Geigh understands the importance of the structure of an event and the needs of the guests. “Some people really enjoy the dances with their family, and other people would rather get the party started right away. I really try to talk with the clients about how they want their day to go. Once you break the ice for everyone, it really gets easier for everybody to have a good time. My favorite part of the night is around the father/daughter dance, because after that everyone starts dancing together, and it’s like, everybody kind of realizes that they’re all a family now.”

Every party is different – the soundtrack to a wedding reception will sound quite different than the tunes played at a Sweet 16 celebration! With that in mind, it’s worth considering the kind of questions you’d ask an all events DJ in Lincoln. Not sure where to start? Use these bullet points to guide your search:
The mark of a great DJ is their ability to turn an awkward and shy crowd into a lively and excited room of dancers. Of course, not every event calls for this kind of evolution; a corporate event DJ in Lincoln might be excellent at setting the tone for a formal dinner while a wedding and event DJ in Lincoln might be better at curating a dance playlist. Regardless, in your hunt for the perfect DJ, it’s worth asking how they get the crowd excited.
Just as you wouldn’t hire a pet sitter to babysit your toddler, you’ll want to select a DJ who has experience with the specific kind of event you’re hosting. Most DJs get into the field because of their love for music, but their personal preferences in the types of gigs they take and the tunes they play can seriously impact the mood of your event. Ask about their experience with your type of event and how they handle common challenges that may arise.
Some DJs are eager to take song requests of event attendees, while others prefer to personally curate the night’s playlist. If you feel strongly about song requests, it’s worth asking a Lincoln DJ about their policy before you hire them. It’s also a good idea to outline any songs you don’t want to be played or specific songs you know you’ll want to hear at the event. Controlling for surprises is key for any successful party!
Many DJs work alone, but some bring along assistants to help set up and breakdown their equipment. In some cases, large DJ companies send out different employees to man the event than the person you spoke to about their services. When chatting about the options, make sure you’re clear on exactly who will be manning your special event and what safety net is in place if they can’t make it.
Some DJs have streamlined their equipment and won’t take up a lot of space. Others will bring along lights and sound equipment and will need a certain amount of square footage for their setup. Ask about their needs – how early do they need to access the space to begin setting up? How many electrical outlets will they need? Do they wear a uniform or will they dress to match the formality of your event? These kinds of logistical questions are often forgotten amidst the excitement of planning!
