Hiring a one-man entertainment (single DJ) for your wedding reception is like hiring a one-man band! You get what you pay for...
Think about it. Some "DJs" say they will play great music, take requests from your guests, run full lighting, coordinate all your events AND act as your Master of Ceremonies too! Some might be able to do it, but most just won't be able to do it PROPERLY.
At Amazing Sounds, we work in TEAMS. We send out TWO people (3 if we are doing full lighting) to make sure that ALL the "jobs" are done and done right!
Who Do We Send and What Do They Do?
The DJ is your Music Technician - they play the music, take requests for songs, operate the equipment and make sure the volume is at the proper levels for your group.
The MC (Master of Ceremonies) is your Entertainment & Events Coordinator - They will announce all your events so your guests don't miss a single thing. They also make sure everyone is ready for each event (Grand Entrance, toasts, Bouquet & Garter toss, Cake cutting, etc.) and that you and your guests are having a good time. They can help release tables to the buffet, coordinate with the photographer, video and catering staff, while giving you the peace of mind that everything is being handled in a professional and elegant manner.
The Lighting Technician handles the special effects - We bring out a third person if advanced lighting or special effects are wanted. They control the lighting and handle other things like streamer launchers, live video effects, etc.
Of course the MC is also backup to the Music and Lighting Technicians, enabling them to take breaks without leaving their equipment unattended. They also help out taking requests and doing periodic sound level checks. In addition, all of our staff are cross-trained to help fill in these areas when and where needed, so if you see the Music Tech step away from the console you needn't worry when the lighting tech steps into his/her place to run things.
We often wonder how other companies can promise you the same quality, but with just one person.
Think about this: Every bridal magazine and website reminds you to "ask the DJs about bringing backup equipment"... Why don't they also have you ask about backup personnell?? Isn't that just as important... If not more so?
TEAMS - it's the way WE do business.
