As an entertainment company, we wanted to take out some of the guesswork for you when reaching out and connecting with folks your entrusting with one of the biggest pieces of your reception: the party!
At Harmony, we're not afraid to share scouting tips on our competition because we know the quality we offer. We connected with one of our favorite vendors to put together 20 questions to couples select a DJ or Band. Thanks Events by Melody! While we could answer them all right now and make this blog the longest post known to humankind, we'd rather have you ask us the questions that matter most to you and your partner. So, without further ado, 20 questions to ask a DJ (or band) before you book:
Is my wedding date available?
How long have you been in business?
Have you done any weddings and/or events at my venue?
Are there any other services you provide such as uplighting or a photo booth?
How extensive is your music library or song list? What genres do you cover?
Do you act as the “emcee” and make all the announcements?
How much of a deposit do you require and when is the final payment due?
What is your refund/cancellation policy?
Do you bring backup equipment?
If the DJ or one of the band members scheduled for my wedding/event is unable to perform for some reason, do you have a backup replacement ready to go?
Talk to your partner and select which questions are the most important to you, then, start getting those companies on the phone when you're feeling ready to go!
