When you are trying to choose a party DJ hire for all of your guests to have a great time, you want to make sure that everything you acquire for your event fits perfectly together. You wouldn’t go to your local party store, grab twenty random items, and then say you’re good to go right? You put time and thought into planning an event, so why not put the same effort into picking the right party DJ hire.
When many people think of DJs, they just think it’s a person who can cater to whatever the event or party needs, no matter what. But the truth is there are many different DJs out there, and not all of them are right for your event.

Club DJs are ones that are commonly portrayed in the media, and you will find them in public bars and club in any metropolitan area. They usually specialize in one style of music, and cater to a narrow audience that is there to enjoy that exact style of music. In terms of flexibility, it’s possible you may find a Club DJ to cater to your party or event, but they will unlikely be very experienced in catering to a wide audience, or even taking simple requests.
Club DJs usually go into a venue that hired the DJ to play the music the DJ wants, and sometimes with a pre-defined set list that they are unlikely to change or alter in any way. Usually they will not have their own sound system or equipment, and will lean on the venue to provide these things. These are added costs that you should not have to worry about while coordinating your event.
Party DJs on the other hand, can cater to almost any audience and are prepared to do so prior to your event. Whether it be a birthday party, wedding reception, charity event, or even an organized dance, party disc jockey’s will have music prepared and tailored to your specific event. A party DJ is used to playing a wide assortment of music as week to week they are providing DJ services for a variety of clients, each wanting their own special theme or playlist.
A large difference between Club DJs and Party DJ Hire is that Party DJs are not only there to fit your needs and make you happy, but also cater to your guests happiness and specific requests. While most events have a theme, sometimes a guest has a request that just fits that right now moment!
Club DJs are unlikely to listen or use such a request, whereas a Party DJ is a jack-of-all-trades that will queue up that song in no time flat. Party DJs are happy to take requests and are invested in keeping everyone happy, as happy guests lead to a happy employer and a fun time! Also, if you hire a Party DJ, they usually have all the equipment and sound systems they need as they cater to all different size venues and parties. That’s one less added cost you needn’t to worry about, and you’ll have more time to think of all the great music you can listen to!
