Frequently asked questions

What does a DJ do?

A DJ, short for disc jockey, is a skilled professional responsible for selecting and playing recorded music for audiences. They do more than just play tunes; they carefully select playlists, blend songs, and produce a continuous stream of music designed specifically for the event or location. Firstly, a professional DJ consults with clients to understand their musical preferences, the theme of the event, and the audience demographics. They create playlists or setlists based on this information, integrating various genres, styles, and eras to cater to diverse tastes. Throughout the event, DJs use mixers, turntables, or digital controllers to seamlessly merge tracks, generating a constant and dance-friendly rhythm. They read the crowd's response and adjust the music accordingly, ensuring the atmosphere remains lively and engaging. DJs also handle announcements, introduce special moments (like the first dance at a wedding), and maintain the overall flow of the event. Additionally, DJs often use digital technology, software, and effects to enhance their performances. They might create remixes or mashups, adding their unique touch to popular tracks. DJs are also responsible for managing sound levels, ensuring that the music is audible without being overwhelming.

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. You can browse our diverse list of DJs for all occasions and ask them specific questions to adapt their set to your exact requirements. However, we recommend sending your DJ a list of songs you'd want them to include in their set list before your 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.

Should I hire a DJ or a band for my wedding?

Choosing between a DJ and a live band for your wedding depends on your preferences, budget, and the atmosphere you want to create. Consider a DJ if you'd prefer: 1. Variety of Music: DJs can play a wide and large selection of music, accommodating diverse musical tastes and genres. 2. Budget: DJs are often more budget-friendly than live bands, making them a cost-effective choice. 3. Space: If your venue has limited space, a DJ requires less setup room compared to a live band. Consider a live band if you'd prefer: 1. Live Experience: Live bands bring a unique energy and authenticity to your wedding, creating a lively atmosphere that engages your guests. 2. Personalisation: Bands can tailor their performance, adapting to your musical preferences and even accommodating special song requests. 3. Ambience: If you want a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere, nothing beats live music. Ultimately, the choice depends on your vision for the wedding and your budget. Both options can provide excellent entertainment; it's about selecting the one that aligns best with your desired atmosphere and the overall theme of your celebration. If unsure, speak to one of our experts at Encore who can help you choose the right musician 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 portable setup that includes a DJ, sound system, and lighting equipment, allowing them to provide entertainment at various locations. Unlike a traditional nightclub or venue, a mobile disco can be set up anywhere, whether it's a wedding reception, corporate event, or private party. The mobile DJ will bring all the necessary equipment and create a lively atmosphere by playing a wide range of music genres to suit the occasion and cater to the crowd's preferences. They will interact with the audience, taking song requests and ensuring everyone is having a great time. With a mobile disco, you have the flexibility to bring the party to any venue of your choice, making it a popular choice for those who want to create a unique and memorable event experience.

Do you tip a DJ you hire?

Whether you tip a DJ you hire depends on the quality of service provided. If a talented DJ delivers exceptional service, keeps the guests entertained, and enhances the event atmosphere, you might choose to tip as a token of gratitude. Ultimately, tipping is a personal choice, and if you feel the DJ has gone above and beyond to make your event memorable, a tip can be a thoughtful way to acknowledge their efforts.
