Corner Brook Venues Can Challenge Wedding DJs

Throughout Corner Brook,Newfoundland, there are very few locations and venues that we haven’t performed as a professional DJ service.  The various venues used for wedding receptions in the Corner Brook Area pose some interesting challenges for wedding DJs.

Some of the more popular reception locations include the Glynmill Inn, Greenwood Inn and Suites, Corner Brook Legion and the Pepsi Centre.  Each location has its own unique challenges that could impact your wedding DJ and your reception.

For locations such as The Glynmill Inn and the Greenwood Inn, your wedding DJ must remember the venue is a hotel.  There will likely be people outside the wedding party and those invited to the wedding staying at these locations.

It is important for your wedding DJ to dial back the bass and keep the volume at a moderate level.  Thumping bass tends to cause the most problems at these wedding venues and unless your DJ pays particular attention to this detail, guests at the hotel will complain and management at the locations are obligated to deal with the complaint.

It creates tension for the bride and groom and leaves the wedding DJ with a much more difficult time entertaining the wedding guests.

TheDJs.ca has also noticed there are also times when bartenders at these locations have the wedding DJ to announce last call well before what some expect.

As noted, these locations are hotels and have many other guests they cater to, not just those attending the wedding reception.  Your wedding DJ will undoubtedly be asked to make last call earlier than if your wedding was held at another location.  It is often, not their choice.

Wedding venues such as the Corner Brook Legion and the Pepsi Centre can cause your wedding DJ nightmares.

These venues are much larger venues than most DJs in the Corner Brook Area typically perform in.  As such, some DJ systems are underpowered and cannot provide quality sound or lighting to create a party atmosphere.

When choosing your wedding DJ in theCorner Brookarea, ensure you ask questions about their experiences and rapport with the different venues in the city.  Professional DJs will have built a reputation with each location, understand the logistics around playing in these venues and know the ground rules before the entertainment starts.

Take the time to discuss whichCorner Brookwedding venue you are considering with your wedding DJ.  Keeping them in the loop will help make your special night that much more enjoyable.

Corner Brook’s Most Popular Waltz?

As a professional DJ service in the Corner Brook, Newfoundland area, your success depends on knowing which songs appeal to different crowds.  Finding that perfect balance is always difficult, especially if the event has a variety of age groups in attendance.

Like any good DJ there are certain songs you know will pack the dance floor regardless of the age group.  Some of the classics such as Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” and The Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling” appeal to the masses and will get the blood pumping regardless of the age group in attendance.  These songs will get you on the floor and moving.

Still there is nothing like a waltz to get the floor packed regardless of the time of night.  Everyone likes to snuggle close to their loved one, share a special moment and steal a kiss or two on the dance floor.

After 10 years of DJing in the Corner Brook and surrounding area, the most popular waltz hands down Alan Jackson’s “Remember When”.

While Alan Jackson is one of the most successful country artists of all-time, “Remember Win” appeals to the masses and from the first chord of this song, couples snuggle up, settle in and sway slowly to the haunting words.  Both young and old love this tune and it is a song in TheDJs.ca arsenal that can not kick off a great evening of entertainment, it is a song that can bring spark back into the part in the wee hours of the morning.

Choosing the Song for the First Dance

Here at TheDJs.ca – Newfoundland Wedding DJs, we know the importance of selecting the right music for your wedding day and understand that most couples find it difficult to choose their first dance song as husband and wife.

Music sets the tone for your wedding and selecting that special song for your first song becomes an extension of you as a couple.  It should invoke memories and make you smile.

Some couples select the song that was playing the first time they met while others use the one playing when they were engaged.  If the bride and groom are having a themed wedding, the first song may be something to match the theme.

Some of the more popular wedding songs played by TheDJs.ca have been Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” and Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful”.  We’ve also played some rather untraditional mixes such as “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Dwight Yoakam.
