Where do you put the DJ? Consider your guests and the dance floor when designing your reception layout. Wedding coordinators and venues often only consider the location of the power outlets when designing the layout of a reception. This is important, but it is really way down on the list of things to consider. The DJ needs to be right on top of the dance floor. For some DJs, this may not be as big of a deal because all they do is make announcements and press play. This is not how we DJ at EventsTacoma.com. We like to be on our feet, next to the dance floor, looking for opportunities to increase the fun and interact with the crowd. This is not realistic from 40 feet away. I cannot tell you how often I have arrived at a wedding to find 3 or 4 tables between me and the dance floor. That means I have to blast out those tables to get the right volume to the dance floor. I particularly see this mistake made by the "best friend - wedding planners". I have often had babies and senior citizens seated at these tables. I will need to keep the sound level way down for the safety of the eardrums. Really, one of the best ways to set up a room is to put the dance floor at the far end, with the DJ at the very end. Then you plan your seating assignments with your elderly guests and babies at the extreme opposite end. This will create an environment that will satisfy most everyone. This is not the silver bullet though. If you have a very large venue and more than 300 people, you may want to place the dance floor in the center of the room. If it is a large room, you can still take advantage of the far ends of each room to isolate anyone that would be sound sensitive. By the way, don't let this post discourage you if you have a friend that is a great candidate for your "day of event coordinator". but if they have not done at least 100 weddings, encourage them to seek advice from your experienced vendors. All of the books and good intentions on the planet cannot replace experience. Visit www.EventsTacoma.com for the best rates on DJs and Photo Booths in the northwest. Live musicians and bands also available.

As featured on “The Knot”

We cover all types of events, but when it comes to weddings, we are the experts.  from setting up the sound for the ceremony, to playing the “send off” song at the end of the night, we have you covered.  I have been a Professional DJ  and “Master of Ceremonies” for several years. One of the questions I frequently get is “What is your DJ Style?”  J smile when I hear this because it is more important to determine what style you want your wedding to be.  I am a professional, and it is my job to deliver the performance you expect.  We will meet, plan a time-line and discuss the entire event.  I will make some suggestions along the way, but I will deliver the style of event we plan.  As for the music, We offer unlimited requests.  We purchase music licenses from online DJ services and we have access to almost anything.  Click on the DJ page to learn more, or give me a call directly at 253-213-8300  Curt Hoagland Professional DJ & Master of Ceremonies
