You may already know, but Luxury DJ Hire is where AG Events started. We have since become industry leaders in providing 'cool vibe' Wedding DJ Hire, coupled with our sleek & stylish custom DJ set ups, which use the latest and greatest equipment; creating a DJ service like no other.
When it comes to planning a wedding, the DJ you choose can make or break the reception. A great wedding DJ will talk to you regarding your music preferences prior to the big day, will know how to read the crowd, play the right songs at the right time, and keep the party going all night long!
AG Events has DJ Hire for every occasion! From Weddings and Private Parties, to Corporate Events and Student Nights, our DJ Hire packages have got you covered! Our team of experienced event DJs have been providing the highest quality of DJ hire in Newcastle and throughout the North East since 2009.
But what exactly makes a wedding DJ great? Here are a few qualities to look for and ask about:
Experience: When you are looking for DJ Hire, one of the most important aspects is that they have a lot of experience under their belt. Here at AG Events, our incredible team of DJs have years of not only Wedding DJ experience, but Corporate, Night Club and Private Hire DJ experience. By having such a broad background, we know how to handle every dance floor crowd and keep the dance floor alive all night long!
Equipment: Besides the DJ themselves, this has got to be one of our most important points to look out for when hiring an amazing Wedding DJ. It is always worth looking at what equipment your choice of DJ uses and if they are providing their own sound/lighting equipment (this is commonplace for most weddings).
Listening to you: A great Wedding DJ will listen to your exact requirements to ensure their set is tailored to your exact requirements. As well as informing your DJ of any "Must Play" songs/genres, don't be shy to send any "DO NOT PLAY" songs/genres.
Personality: A wedding DJ needs to have a great vibe and energetic personality, this will really help to get the party going and keep everyone on the dance floor.
Professionalism: A DJ who is punctual, well-prepared, and well-organised is essential. You don't want to have to worry about your DJ showing up late or not having the right equipment and you certainly don’t want to be concerned about your DJ interrupting each and every song with bad DJ Karaoke or comments about what song is coming up next!
Flexibility: A great wedding DJ should be able to adapt to the crowd and play a variety of music styles to keep everyone happy. Your DJ needs to be flexible and able to cater/adapt to all music preferences on a night, whilst ensuring the requests played are suitable for the vibe of the dance floor. Our DJ Hires include unlimited request, both leading up to the night and on the night itself to ensure everyone is happy and the floor is full.
So, how to find the best wedding DJ Hire North East! Here are a few tips:
Recommendations: There is no greater endorsement than that of your friends, family, and even other wedding vendors! Your North East Wedding Venue may even have a recommended supplier list!
Do your research: Look at their website and social media profiles to get a sense of their style, professionalism and set up.
Look for reviews: Read online reviews from past clients to get an idea of what to expect from the DJ. We have nothing but 5* reviews for our North East DJ Hire and our wedding entertainment packages. You can view all of our reviews on the reviews tab at the bottom of our website, or on our Facebook page review section.
What should I consider when choosing my Wedding DJ Hire:
Music selection: Make sure your North East DJ has a wide range of music to choose from and is willing to play your must-have songs. We work with you to ensure the perfect choice of music for your event based around your music preferences. We also take unlimited requests. Our music databases are also updated weekly, to include all of the latest bangers, all the way back to the classics and everything in between!
Packages and pricing: When looking at DJ Hire, consider their packages and pricing, be sure to make sure it fits within your budget.
Equipment: Ask about the DJ's equipment to ensure they have everything they need for a successful event. All of our DJ Packages included the latest and greatest RCF speaker systems, with state-of-the-art lighting rigs. We are also fully insured with a £10million Public Liability Policy and all of our electrical equipment is PAT tested.
When planning your North East Wedding there are a few ways you can make your evening reception unforgettable!
Create a playlist: All of our Newcastle DJ Hires include a consultation where you can work with the DJ to create a playlist that reflects your tastes and includes a mix of fast and slow songs.
Get your guests involved: If you are happy for your guests to get involved with the music choices, why not ask them to request their favourite songs and get them involved in the planning process. Some couples like to include a card for guests to request a few songs on the wedding invites.
