A quality DJ has an instinct for an audience and knows when to ebb and flow during the reception. To get people out of their seats and to keep everyone engaged throughout the night is not an easy job. Toss in a few interruptions for cake cuttings and other traditions and it is obvious why it is a job that requires finesse and expert timing.
Guyton Mobile DJ is a husband and wife team who are fantastic at their jobs — probably why they are booked through early 2018.
I asked Jason what he does to make his receptions so much fun (and they are, even for the vendors) and he explained, “We do spend hours and hours communicating & meeting with each couple to provide them a truly customized wedding. There is no cookie-cutter; one-size-fits-all; solution. Just as couples are unique, we provide one-of-a-kind receptions.”
I understand that. All my couples are unique, too, but I still couldn’t resist asking for a few crowd pleasers to keep the party hopping. Jason explained that his choices vary on the situation and the couple and knowing what to play and when to play it but he did give me a fun list of solid choices for a couple to consider when planning their reception.
