Are your DJs experienced?
Our DJs have played hundreds of parties and events: whatever the occasion, they’ve played at many similar functions. They know how to read the room, build up the vibe and get people dancing. They have entire libraries of songs in their minds to flip through at a moment’s notice, ensuring you always have the perfect song playing at the perfect moment. They know what songs will be a hit with different demographics, whether it’s the latest new releases or obscure golden oldies. They are able to build the perfect soundtrack for your event, taking into account the list of songs you gave them beforehand, requests made during the event, and the feel of things on the day. They know what songs combine well in playlists, what order of titles will keep the mood consistent, and how to mash tracks together so there’s no awkward seconds of silence between them. How many times have you been at a party with everyone dancing, only for the song to end and every person to leave the dance floor? It’s hard to get that momentum back once it’s lost. DJs know how to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Do your DJs MC?
Yes, our DJ's have the ability to provide basic master of ceremony services such as general announcements and introductions. If MC services are required correct pronunciation of names will be required.
Will the DJ visit the venue before the day of event?
The DJ does not visit the venue before the day of your event if it is at a residential address unless requested. Depending on the non-residential venue, the DJ may not need to view the venue and will instead arrive 1 hour prior to the event. The SIFA Events administration team will sort out venue details and orchestrate information to the DJ prior to the event.
Can the mobile DJs beat mix?
