Questions To Hire Your Musicians or Dis Jockey                 Wedding Music List

The Question is always about whether you want a  classical group, guitarist, disc jockey, a small band or orchestra and an I Pod.  

Each comes with its own set of concerns.  Look for Good Referrals, personalities and a large number of reviews.  


A good DJ is going to want a “no play” list from the clients, along with a short “must play” list. Then they’ll base the rest of their selections off of what that tells them about your taste in music mixed with their own knowledge of what gets a crowd moving.
