Should I use an event planner on the day of the event?
You can , but it is not necessary. DJ Billy Zee will make sure all events follow the schedule for a worry free event.
All events require planning before the event, so the reception has a good flow with the appropriate music. Weddings and Mitzvahs require extra planning since there are more special moments that must be acknowledged. DJ BIlly Zee coordinates these high profile events with a detailed time line created with information supplied by the client. This time line is reviewed and emailed to the other vendors before the occasion.
The music is used as a tool to subconsciously cue guests to the next activity, by changing genres or lowering the volume. This is how things seem to organically flow with DJ Billy Zee mixing the music and making the announcements following a schedule. An additional on sight planner sometimes can clash – too many cooks in the kitchen.
Do you offer a variety of options?
Yes, options include: a separate ceremony sound system, a wireless speaker for different rooms, up lights, dance floor light packages, 22″, 32″, 42″ or 100″ (6ft) screens for photos/ videos, and a live camera to capture guests on the big screen. You may want to add a photo montage a week before your big day.
Things to consider
A quality Disc Jockey is judged on service and reputation. Does the DJ play your music? follow your time line? MC appropriately? supply quality equipment?, etc…. A professional DJ is not a commodity like a pair of shoes, where the best value is found by a lower price. Compare DJ sites and notice the quality of information supplied. You should see photos from their events and testimonials with contact information. Do they have awards? Are they part of the American DJ Association or the Baltimore DJ Association?
A wedding reception and other gatherings are a way of saying, “Thanks for being part of my special day. DJ Billy Zee will assist in making this gift to your family and friends a day to remember. The client is the one to shine, while the DJ simply directs without being the center of attention.
