4 things you should never say to a DJ
DJs are hired to play at parties and weddings, and this usually means most of the guests are drinking alcohol. You know what it’s like when you’ve had a drink, you get your dancing feet on and you want to hear your favourite tune. So you stumble over to the DJ booth to make your request. But wait… what’s that song called? I know, I’ll sing it for the DJ! Please don’t! And here are some more things you should never say to a DJ…
- Play something good that we can dance to! Everything a DJ plays can be danced to in some way. What you actually mean is that you don’t like the current song and you want him to play something different. You need to remember that the DJ has to please a whole room of people, not just you. Just sit this one out and you’ll probably love the next song!
- Everybody wants to hear that song! The DJ isn’t daft, he knows you’ve not just ran around the party doing a quick poll on whether or not everyone wants to hear the latest One Direction song! He’ll play a good mix of music, and you might get lucky, but the DJ is not a jukebox!
- Can you give my friend a shout out for her birthday? Erm, no. We’re pretty sure your friend would prefer to be wished a happy birthday by her friends, rather than the stranger behind the decks who is actually concentrating on giving you all a good night on the dance floor!
- Play it next because we’re leaving soon! If you’re waiting to hear a certain song before you leave then we’ll probably hold off on playing it for a while because we don’t want you to leave! We want you to stay on the dance floor and carry on enjoying yourself. A packed out dance floor of people enjoying themselves is what all DJs live for!
