Claudia hired Tom Green for a Corporate event (available in Barnet)

“DJ Tom was a real asset to our event. Professional, well-presented, friendly, and very collaborative, he created a unique atmosphere on our exhibition stand and was a pleasure to have as part of the team for this busy three-day event. DJ Tom chatted to visitors and got them involved with the playlist. He knew when to take the music pace down and when to pick it up, depending on the activity on the stand. The music he selected hit all the right notes and created a fantastic atmosphere on the stand. We will be booking him again for the next show. He's a gem! ”

FAQs about hiring Djs in Barnet

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What does a DJ do?

A DJ, short for disc jockey, is a musician responsible for selecting and playing recorded music for audiences. They do more than just play songs; they blend music and carefully curate playlists specifically for each event. Our DJs will first discuss with you your music preferences, the theme of the event and the demographics of your guest list so they can get an understanding of the type of music that will work best for your event. When performing, DJs use mixers, turntables or other digital equipment to merge and blend tracks to keep a constant flow of music. Our DJs are experts at reading the crowd and adjusting the music accordingly, ensuring everyone’s having a great time. Many of our DJs offer MC services where they handle announcements and introduce special moments (like the first dance at a wedding). Some DJs also create remixes or mashups, adding their unique touch to popular tracks.

Is it rude to ask DJ for a song request?

Not at all! Unlike live musicians, who have to learn music before performing it, your DJ may play almost any song you request. However, we recommend sending your DJ a list of songs you'd want them to include in their set list before the event, as some DJs may be unable to find lesser-known tracks on the night.

Do DJs need insurance to play?

Yes, many professional DJs in the UK choose to have insurance coverage. While it is not a legal requirement, venues and event organisers often require DJs to have PLI (Public Liability Insurance). This insurance protects DJs from potential legal and financial liabilities if a third party (such as a guest or venue staff) is injured or their property is damaged during the performance. Having insurance provides peace of mind and demonstrates professionalism, especially when performing at events and venues that prioritise safety and security for all parties involved. Encore simplifies the process of finding and booking insured DJs as all our musicians with PLI are marked with a badge on their profile.

What do I need to ask a DJ before hiring?

Aside from the pragmatic questions such as availability, music library and experience, there are some often overlooked questions such as set up times, how much space they'll need and performance style (how they interacted with the audience and their mixing style). If stuck, get in touch with one of our experts who can help you find the perfect DJ for your event.

Does a DJ provide all their own equipment?

DJs typically have their own decks, a high-quality PA system, microphones, and disco lighting. The quality of their equipment has a huge impact on the quality of the sound and experience they create—expensive DJs frequently have superior equipment, with this investment in quality and experience reflected in their price. Always ask the DJ if they require any additional equipment for their performance, as your venue may be able to supply additional sound and lighting to improve the performance.

How do I can find the right DJ for my event?

Finding the right DJ for your event can seem like a daunting task, but with Encore, you can ensure to find the perfect DJ for your event. You can browse through our selection of 360 professional DJs where you can filter by location, price, theme and check availability. We also provide reviews so you get a sense of their style and be assured of their professionalism. We also have dedicated category pages for DJs for corporate events, weddings, and birthday parties to ensure that your chosen DJ has experience with the type of event your hosting. Once you shortlisted a few DJ's you're interested in, you can directly enquire on the site and ask some more specific questions such as mixing style, an example of one of their typical DJ sets, and how they interact with the crowd. You can also specify at this stage whether you'd rather have a party DJ who keeps the dance floor full or a DJ who provides ambient background music, depending on your requirements.

How far in advance should I book?

We encourage booking a DJ as soon as possible. A talented DJ can be sometimes scheduled months (or even years!) in advance for peak periods like Christmas and the summer wedding season. However, at Encore, we handle last-minute reservations so get in touch with one of our experts if you have an event planned soon.

What is a mobile disco?

A mobile disco is a DJ who tours with a portable sound system allowing the DJ to travel around and perform in spaces which might not fit or have the facilities for a traditional stage. The beauty of mobile discos is that, unlike a traditional nightclub or venue, a mobile disco can be set up anywhere, perfect for smaller or outdoor venues.

Do you tip a DJ you hire?

Whether you tip a DJ you hire is completely up to you. If you feel your DJ has gone above and beyond to keep your guests entertained, you may want to tip them to show appreciation. However, ultimately, it is a personal choice and there is no expectation to.
