Music is food for the soul and can be quite instrumental in setting the tone for your guests. Music is the most important factor in making your wedding reception enjoyable for your guests, and this is why you should be concerned with the level of professionalism when it comes to hiring a DJ for the event.
Hiring a DJ is not the only step to be considered when it comes to having an enjoyable event. You may have a professional and competent DJ, but without adequate setup space for their equipment, you may not get the most of their services.
With the wealth of experience accumulated over the years, we at StLouisDj.com have some factors to be considered regarding of setup space for your DJ.
Accessible Electric Ports
These are necessary features if you intend to play any music at the event. The availability of multiple electric ports helps reduce the clumsiness of equipment setup. A standard venue such as The Hilton Hotel, St Louis should have a space for the DJ. This space should be equipped with electric ports to ensure adequate organization of equipment.
Connection Routes for Speakers and Other Equipment
Ever been to a party where the music kept going on and off because people kept stepping on the connection cables? Well, to be sincere, it’s quite an annoying experience not something to look forward to in any party; especially your wedding reception.
It may be underground cable pathways or especially connected cables, but a standard reception venue should have special routes for the connection of DJ equipment to avoid disorientation of the event. This feature may be absent in some venues, it all depends on the overall orientation of the facility. For example, a small hall with a designated ‘spot’ for the DJ and his equipment may not need these special connection routes because the speakers maybe located at one part of the hall away from the guests; this may not imply in a large hall where multiple speakers will be required for proper sound.
