This is the first blog post for the year as there has been so much going on, I can't believe it's June already!!
With the dry season now upon us and as we wake up to those nice cool breezes each morning there's now many people planning birthday parties, corporate events and weddings among other things.
One thing that has really struck me in recent times is how many options people now available when arranging an event, such as venues, decorators, party hire equipment, event co-ordinators, caterers and yes, even entertainment (Mobile DJs, Jukeboxes, Karaoke, PA Hire to name a few).
And while it may appear from the outside that each provider is as capable as the next, sometimes it's worth doing a little digging before you take the leap of faith to making a booking.
In the entertainment sphere we've had many changes in recent times, from equipment (analog to digital), playout systems (CD's, records etc to digital, with mp3 being the most popular) as well as how we consume our media these days, which affects peoples knowledge and access to new music in a really good way.
When it comes to booking entertainment I recommend at the very least having a conversation prior to making a booking. While it's easy to make an online enquiry and to arrange things via email there's nothing better than discussing what you're looking for in detail as a part of your booking process. If the DJ knows exactly what you like and dislike in advance of your event this makes it so much easier for things to go smoothly. Particularly with weddings you don't really want to leave this to chance.
We've provided entertainment services in Darwin since 2003, first with Mobile DJs, then Jukeboxes, PA Hire and now we also offer Slushie Machine hire. I've been in the industry since 1990 playing at events around Australia, overseas and now in Darwin. We've played at events here in Darwin, both big and small, from Darwin's top venues to peoples blocks and back yards, one thing that seems to be consistent no matter where the event is being held, the more input you have when making your booking, the happier you'll be at the end of the function.
Some times it's those one or two songs that you let us know about before hand that turns a good night into a great one!!
