Hiring a communion DJ on Long Island can be challenging so we decided to take years of experience and networking and came up witha guide to help you in the process of hiring a great DJ entertainer that can not only play great music, but also entertain a group of up to 50 kids at the same time. A great communion DJ is a combination of game show host and great selector of kid’s friendly music. Most communions occur in April and May and generally are at the same exact time (12pm, 1pm 2pm or 3pm start time) on either a Saturday or Sunday. Because a DJ can only do one 4 hour time slot per day it’s a great idea to start the booking process 6 months to one year prior to your event to ensure you get a great DJ. Here is a list of Long Island Catering Halls.
EXPERIENCE MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE!
The first thing you want to ask the DJ is how much experience they have doing communion’s and kids parties. A good DJ should have at least 10 years’ experience of entertaining at kids parties and have a good understanding of how to interact with children, know how to play interactive games and also understand that he should play kid-friendly radio versions as to not offend any of the adults at the party. Ask the DJ to provide at least three references that you can call to see how his previous clients will review him.
TIME TO PLAN YOUR EVENT
Once you’ve secured a great DJ it’s time to start the planning process you should be able to go over different game ideas with him and give an idea of what you are looking for in terms of energy level music style and individual needs based on your child.
Most DJ companies will play great music and provide games during the course of your event. Also consider other add-on features such as photo booths as they will keep your guests occupied and also give them a Keepsake to take home. Photo Walls are also popular and can be purchased here http://www.stickersbanners.net
Coming up with a theme for your communion is also a nice idea and we have seen everything from Disney, Hollywood and Under the Sea themed to name a few. For more information on party themes please visit Sherman specialties party company or Rhode Island novelty both companies have great theme ideas and giveaways.
Some DJs offer Live Zap Photos and Photo montages, both would be shown on flat screen TVs and come with a keepsake of all the jpegs that the photographer takes during the course of the event. A photo montage is a nice touch as it shows the audience all the growing up pictures of the guest of honor. Cotton Candy Machines at dessert time are also very popular.
