how we work
When you hire your DJ with us, we'll ask you about the artists/styles/decades you love, and any "must have" songs of course! Your DJ will put together a tentative setlist for the night based on those artists, as well as proven party starters!
On the night of the event, they will read the crowd and choose songs based on what is getting everyone dancing. Requests on the night are welcome too, of course!
Everything is taken care of - the DJ wil arrive well before party time and set everything up, and the Find a DJ team will check in with you in the lead up to the big day to ensure we're working to your plan. With 2500 happy couples since 2008, you can be assured you're in safe hands with us.
