WHY CHOOSE A DJ INSTEAD OF A BAND?
Of all the people involved with your event, the DJ is the one person who can make it or break it. The best methods of choosing your DJ are to see him/her in action or through referrals. The music should keep the participants and guests in a festive mood. This should be accomplished mainly by the timing and selections of the music. Although it is ideal for the DJ to have a wonderful personality, he/she should not bring attention to himself in an attempt to entertain.
Your DJ should be professional, courteous and personable. If your event is at a restaurant or hotel banquet hall, your DJ should be working hand-in-hand with the host/hostess in regard to the itinerary.
You should always meet with your DJ to discuss when certain events will take place. If your DJ is vague as to when the event, (such as the garter or bouquet toss at a wedding) will occur, it may be a sign that your special day may translate into a dull reception.
A good DJ always costs less than a band, and since the music is continuous, you get more music for your money.
A DJ can provide a variety of all style of music by the original artists. A DJ can also take requests and make adjustments during the course of the event, sensing what music is working and what is not.
Good sound equipment can be adjusted to suit any size room or audience. Visual effects, such as lights are offered as an option. A DJ is also a professional emcee, experienced at making announcements and guiding the event.
Karaoke is an abbreviated compound word: "kara" comes from "karraopo" meaning empty, and "oke" is the abbreviation of "okesutra," or orchestra. Usually, a recorded song consists of vocals and accompaniment. A music disk in which only the accompaniment has been recorder is named "karaoke."
Karaoke gives you the opportunity to sing a selected song as the words appear on a television screen or monitor. The instrumental portion of the song is played by studio artists and closely resembles the sound made by the original artist. The rest is up to you as the vocalist. Yes, it is fun!
