Hidden qualities to make you a better pro DJ!

Unique DJ qualities 6 Qualities That Will Make You A Better Pro DJ

When you think of the DJs you idolize, what qualities most stand out to you? Is it their uncanny ability to mix the most unusual tracks to produce greatness? Is it the fact that no one mixes better than they do? Or is it something a bit more indefinable? There are plenty of DJs around the world who are technically solid with enviable DJ music collections yet they aren’t well-known and they aren’t booked solid. By that same token there are some very popular (read: famous) DJs who aren’t technically the best but there is something about them that pulls people in…what is it?

There are qualities that successful DJs possess that have nothing to do with DJing, per se. I’ve met DJs, producers, musicians and entrepreneurs who all possess these qualities for success. As you read, be honest with yourself about which of these qualities you have in spades and which ones you need to work on. Continue reading “6 Qualities That Will Make You A Better Pro DJ” »

Getting Wedding Gigs – 5 Tips For Wedding DJs

Are you prepared to wow the bride?

Wedding DJ gigs Getting Wedding Gigs – 5 Tips For Wedding DJs

When you do an interview to DJ a wedding you often meet with the wedding planner, bridesmaid, sometimes the groom or even one of the MOBs (mother of the bride). This often gives you the incorrect assumption that you need to please all of these people to get the gig. So not true. The truth is that there is only one person you truly need to wow, impress and smooze. The bride. The lady in white is the one making the decisions (as are the ladies soon to be in white listening to you) so she’s the boss.

Remember that.

We all know what we have to do as DJs during interviews or auditions for gigs but when it comes to brides it’s kind of a whole different ball game. So let’s talk about what you can do to impress the bride of the day and leave an impression on all those brides to be who will soon be searching for wedding DJ of their own.

DJ lessons for new DJs DJ Lessons For New DJs

Whether you are 18 or 48, your choices are pretty much the same as a brand new digital DJ. You will rarely get asked to be the headliner at the best gigs in the big clubs and festivals that blow through your town. You will, however have to work your butt off just to get the DJ gigs that do come your way. One of the hardest DJ lessons to learn for newbies is that the road to DJ success is a slow uphill battle.

You know that you have to work hard to navigate your DJ equipment in the darkness of a DJ booth, hustle like crazy to get gigs and be grateful for every gig that comes your way. But many newcomers—like interns and entry level workers around the world—new DJs expect overnight success, to be treated like the genius they are to get all the gigs.

Is your DJ style appealing to promoters?

How to DJ for promoters How To Be A DJ Promoters Want To Book

For most DJs plenty of the gigs you get booked for will be at the whim of event promoters. Whether you like it or not, they are a big part of DJing in many big cities with tons of nightclubs. After years of DJing I’ve learned a thing or two about what promoters are actually looking for, compared to what we, as DJs, think they want.
