The best events have the best soundtracks. Regardless of who is on the guest list, what you’re serving for dinner, or what’s inside your goodie bags, a great party has to have a great playlist to set the mood. Thankfully, the Complete Weddings + Events team knows a great DJ when we hear one, which is why we’re so passionate about connecting clients with Springfield DJs they’ll love. When folks are dancing, socializing, and enjoying the tunes, you know you’re on your way to a memorable event!

4) Why do I like performing at weddings. “I was a part of my best friends wedding and saw all the stress him and his wife went though without a wedding planner or DJ. So when I perform at weddings, I make it my goal to make their day one where they can be in the moment and not have to worry about a single thing. When I see the bride and groom dancing and having fun, it tells me that I achieved my goal. And that is the best feeling for me.”

Getting to make someone’s day by giving them a reception they will always remember is something that I love doing
3)What is #YourPersonalityInFiveWords
4) What is your theme song/best song that describes you?
Suit and Tie- JT
5) Why do you like performing at weddings?
I love being in charge of the party!
I joined Complete as a DJ just because I needed another job. I stayed with Complete because I learned that this isn’t just another job. There’s not a lot of jobs that really let you get to know people beyond just how their day is. Being a DJ, I get to know people on a deeper level. As I get to know a couple and learn more about them, it makes watching their big moment and being a big part of it, that much more special. I like to perform at weddings because honestly, weddings are a lot of fun! Getting to dance the Wobble with a couple and their friends and family is always a lot of fun. I would describe my personality as outgoing and carefree. I’ll do my best to make your big day memorable in all the right ways! The song that best describes me is Stronger by Britney Spears. Life may be stressful, but I’m always stronger than yesterday. If Britney can get through 2007, then I can get through my last semester of college. Some fun facts about me are that I’m Jewish, but my favorite food basically ignores most of the Jewish dietary restrictions (it’s tacos), and I do aerial acrobatics in my spare time. I can’t wait to work with you!
I would describe my DJ personality as fun, more laid back, personable, friendly, and outgoing.
I became a DJ because I love music, and it seemed like such a fun job.
Chill, funny, creative, compassionate, honest
I love performing at weddings because I love being part of the couple’s special day. I get emotional at every wedding, even when only knowing the clients for a few weeks (so good luck to my future husband). It’s really rewarding and makes you feel proud, being able to see how happy you were able to make the bride and groom on the best day of their lives.
If I was stranded on an island and was only allowed to have three items, it would be a jug of water, my phone, & a match.
Choosing the right Springfield event DJ for your party is critical. It’s important to find someone who has the experience, skill, and crowd-savvy necessary to create a mood and keep energy levels high throughout the event. While most special event DJs in Springfield, MO can rise to the occasion, it’s worth digging a little deeper to understand how they’ll impact your party. After all, you’re leaving no detail to chance – why not spend a little time finding the best DJ for your gig?
Event planning is full of surprises. Make sure you’re pleasantly surprised, not caught off guard by last minute changes by thoroughly vetting your all events DJ in Springfield, MO. Start by considering the type of atmosphere you’re hoping to create for your event. Do you want music that will get people out of their chairs and dancing, or do you prefer something a little more neutral while certain activities and games are happening? The answer to this question can help shape your relationship with your DJ. Here are some other questions to consider:
Ideally, your DJ will have a long history of playing all kinds of events. They’ll be charismatic, social, and get along easily with all types of guests. A corporate events DJ in Springfield, MO may have a drastically different approach to their job than a wedding and event DJ in Springfield. Clarify your needs and see how they respond. Their answer can help ensure your event goes off without a hitch!
This fun question can give you a good idea of the Springfield DJ’s style, skill and taste in music. These important elements that can make or break an event, so it’s smart to throw them such a question and see how their answer aligns with your own philosophy. Even if you don’t necessarily have a go-to favorite that you’d personally recommend, hearing their insight and choice can tell you a lot about the DJ’s ability to improvise!
If you have specific tunes you need played for your party, be sure to ask about their availability. Not every DJ has access to every song ever produced, but with enough advance notice, most requests can be accommodated. While you’re at it, create a list of songs you definitely don’t want played at your party. Share the list with your DJ so you’re on the same page.
Some DJs prefer not to take song requests, as it can interrupt their flow and work against their strategy for the event. While understandable, such a policy can be disappointing to learn at the event. Control for surprises and make sure you know how the Springfield DJ you hire feels about song requests!
DJs often use large speakers, lighting rigs, and HD video screens for fun effects. When interviewing candidates, ask about their technical needs so you can plan ahead. How many electrical outlets will they need access to? How much space does their DJ booth take up? Will they need early access before the event begins in order to set up their equipment? Having the answers to these questions can make the day of your party easier for everyone.
Some DJs work alone. Others opt to bring along an assistant to help with set up and breakdown. The Complete Weddings + Events team will be on site to help ensure your event goes off without a hitch, but you’ll want to make sure you understand exactly who the DJ is bringing along before hiring them. Ask about uniforms, too – if you have a specific look in mind for guests and vendors alike, see if the Springfield DJ is willing to dress the part!
