~ Tips by Darryl Palmer, The Singing DJ Music Entertainment

Having an engagement party at your home (or at a hall)? We've all been there...a big celebration party at a beautiful home or hall. The food is fabulous, the service delightful, but the music is blaring and wrong! The amateur disc jockeys keep changing the music and turning up the volume! Well, if a party deserves great food it also deserves a professional DJ on the sound system.

Darryl's Party Music Tips

  • Control the Volume: The music selection and volume should flow like a conversation, creating a dynamic but stress-free atmosphere.
  • Lose the Wire: An excellent wireless microphone ensures clear, painless sound during speeches (which can be tape-recorded). And when the time comes for dancing - look out!
  • Accept Requests: A party is more fun when you hear your favourite songs. How can we insure everyone will hear music they enjoy? Let the DJ provide request cards or ask for song suggestions! Then the DJ can fill the dance-floor with sets of familiar requested songs.
  • Canadian Idol: Guests may also have great fun with a lip-synch contest or karaoke.
  • Mix it Up: During the dance program a pro DJ will change the music style every 3 or 4 songs (every 10 or 15 minutes). Of course any song that empties the dance floor (even a request) should be faded to make way for a sure winner!
