How to Hire a Bar Mitzvah DJ

A Bar Mitzvah DJ plays music during the special event. They control the types of songs that are played throughout the gathering. They play a special role in setting the ambience. These professionals know how to play with the speed and tempo of songs, depending on the occasion.


Why hire a professional?

There’s a misconception that disc jockeys just play music off a record player. Some people go as far as to make their own playlist and use it for the party. What most people don’t realise is that these experts have a thorough knowledge of music. They can coincide the songs with real-time events, making the gathering feel more special.

Disc jockeys control music for a living. They can alter the beat and tempo of a song to make it more appropriate for the event. Each song can be customised just for the client. To add to this, these professional have an extensive music collection that most people don’t have access to. They usually have licensing to play exclusive content at large venues.

What should I look for?

The main quality you should look for in a disc jockey is professionalism. Look out for:

  • Communication skills – They should be excellent at communicating with you. The expert should be able to manage your expectations, whilst being respectful at all times.
  • Charisma – Charisma is important in disc jockeys, as they often need to serve as emcees in events. They should be likeable and know how to work up a crowd.
  • Equipment – The professional should be able to provide the equipment you need for the entertainment. They should have commercial sound systems available.
  • Team – Setting up for an event takes a lot of work. It usually requires a whole team to move and install the necessary equipment, as well as do sound checks. Most professionals in the industry will have staff members working with them.

Another thing you should consider is the person’s experience. They should be knowledgeable about Jewish events. Look at their past experiences. The expert’s body of work is the best gauge for his artistic style.
