Yes, You Can Make Your Wedding Reception The Best Ever
When You Understand
How Important A Role Your DJ Plays
In The Success Of The
that for most people, choosing a DJ is often difficult and
confusing, yet it's the most important decision you will make for
your wedding reception. Since everyone claims to be "the
best", how can you really find out who is good, and who
is an amateur? For a once in a lifetime event like a wedding
reception, you should hire a professional. Don't take
chances with "a friend of a friend". Although people mean
well, lack of experience or skill will not prepare them to
handle unexpected details that happen during every wedding reception. A professional has seen it all and knows how to handle any unforeseen circumstances that may come up.
recommend you start with a Wedding DJ Specialist. A DJ from a
club or school dance may be great in those surroundings, but they're not necessarily
right for your wedding. A Wedding DJ Specialist is just that ... he specializes in DJ'ing at weddings. Most Wedding DJ Specialists have played every sort of party and club imaginable and are usually the most educated and professional of all Disc Jockeys.
Second, if you can, meet
with the DJ Company. While distances between the company and customer cannot always afford this luxury and sometimes needs to be done via telephone, but if it's at all possible, efforts should be made to meet in person. You must be sure you are comfortable
with the DJ's style and see if it is a good match for you. After
all, they will be representing you at your wedding reception.
the history and background of the DJ Company. Do they have
references? And don't just take their word for it, call
several of their references and find out WHY the client loved
Finally, it's important to never make
the mistake of choosing a DJ by price alone. If the DJ is
not a good fit, but IS the right price, it won't matter a bit if he
ruins your special day that you spent big money and many months
planning. Remember ... you get what you pay for. Inexpensive DJs are often inexperienced as well!
"Jim is a DJ Dynamo! He played fun music that everyone could dance to and made it a party for everyone, not just my wife and I. He welcomed everyone to make requests and was extremely approachable and easy to work with. Honestly, from beginning to end, it was the most fun I have ever had in my entire life."
- Mr. And Mrs. Justin Jones
UNDERSTANDING THE ROLE OF THE DJ AND EMCEE
Since the DJ
you hire will bear the responsibility of over
80% of the success of your
wedding reception, it is easy to see how important it is to
choose wisely. The DJ can be considered "The Entertainment
Director". A common misconception is that the DJ is just "the
music", but in reality, the DJ must perform several duties.
Duties of your DJ include:
with The Bride, Groom, and Family Members
The Flow with Photographers, Caterer, and other vendors
of Ceremony Duties: Organizing the wedding party, making all
announcements including Introductions and all formalities
and Proper Timing of music and requests
A Fun and Personalized Dance Environment
Dances and Interaction at the level you request
One of the keys to a
smooth wedding reception (trust me, there's more than one!) is all in the details and planning. There
are DJs out there that do not understand the importance of being
properly prepared. They go out there as "just music" and run into
problems. For over 25 years, The Music Guys have
helped hundreds of happy couples create unique, memorable and fun
celebrations. You can use our experience to help you plan your
reception, and since we have seen many different situations, we can
advise you as to whether something may work or not and why. We
offer completely personalized, custom wedding entertainment. No two
weddings are alike, and we can design a program to fit most budgets.
"Our favorite part of the reception was Jim’s unique Love Story which gave everyone in attendance a hilarious version of the “How We Met” story. Jim played a wide selection of music. We had asked for big band and ‘60s/’70s music and he filled in the rest with a killer party. Our reception was outside in late May – very hot, very humid – and everyone STILL danced and had a blast. Jim is an absolutely phenomenal DJ. You can’t sit still with this guy!"
- Mr. and Mrs. Loren Fossee
ABOUT THE OWNER
Jim got his start in the Entertainment Industry in 1980. As a teen who was obsessed with music and had a large collection of vinyl, he was asked to DJ at a friend's birthday party. He took the job very seriously, even going so far as buying a copy of Barry Manilow's Greatest Hits for the party, hoping to impress the ladies in attendance. By all accounts, the party was a dismal failure and Jim was fortunate to escape without getting beaten up. But he had been bitten by the entertainment bug and knew that in order to continue performing, he'd have to keep growing as an entertainer.
Proving that miracles do exist, Jim was still called upon to DJ other parties. It helped that he worked cheap and actually tried to entertain rather than put on an album and walk away from the stereo. With time, he learned what worked and what didn't and began to understand the psychology of how to entertain. In 1982 he attended a comedy club on Amateur Night and thought that he was funnier than the people onstage. He signed up to try his hand at comedy the following week.
The results were even worse than his DJ debut. In fact, many people in the audience would have gladly paid to have their memories erased of the evening due to Jim's firm reluctance to include amusing punch lines with his "jokes". But again, Jim persisted and eventually became a professional comedian, working with several of the industry's biggest names at the time including Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, Roseanne Barr, Tim Allen and Jerry Seinfeld.
One night after a particularly awesome set (if he says so himself), he stepped off stage and spotted a beautiful waitress delivering drinks. He swaggered up to the woman as she returned to the bar and introduced himself to the waitress. Her name was Susie. It was love at first sight — for him. She didn't care for his stand-up act so it took a bit longer for her to grasp his unique charms. After a year of long-distance dating, Jim quit comedy to spend more time with Susie and took a job as a Disc Jockey in a Montgomery, Alabama nightclub called Stagger Lee's in 1986. His love for music and comedy combined with his energetic enthusiasm for performing helped make it the #1 nightclub in Central Alabama for two years straight. In 1989, he left Stagger Lee's to become a journalist with the Montgomery Independent newspaper and began DJ'ing private parties on the side. He became the entertainment editor with the Independent, writing a weekly humor column, entertainment column and conducting celebrity interviews with such stars as Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, Gene Simmons and Morris Day.
Throughout the 1990s, Jim continued to perform at private parties and nightclubs and in 2000 he formed The Music Guys, a group of DJs and musicians who quickly became one of the top in-demand entertainment services in the South. Today, The Music Guys are the primary Wedding DJ Specialists in Alabama. Jim's blend of humor and musical knowledge combined with his three decades of experience has helped give thousands of newlyweds the reception of their dreams!
His calendar quickly fills with referrals from other couples and corporations, leading Jim Dunham to be the busiest DJs in the area, often booked up to two years in advance with Weddings, Corporate, and Social Events. It is best to reach Jim at least 4 to 12 months in advance to secure a contract.
"The Music Guys are really kick@$$! They made our wedding great! Jim was so organized that I didn’t have to think the entire night. He told me exactly what to do and it was the best night of my life! I wish I was still dancing at my wedding to this day!"
-Mr. and Mrs. Todd Itson
