Wedding DJ Myth

A lot of times, the suggestions given to plan your wedding are outdated or simply incorrect. Making your entertainment decision based solely on videos is just one of those wedding planning myths that brides are told to do. Don’t be a victim to this wedding DJ myth.

Don’t Be Fooled

You do not want to let a video you see of a DJ be your final decision maker. The video that you watch is going to be something very similar to highlight clip. Just like with movies and photos, almost anyone can make and edit a video to make them look amazing. During that video there will be no way to see how the DJ interacts with other vendors and no time to discuss your specific wedding details to be sure they can accommodate.

If you choose to make your decision solely on the clip you watched, you may not ask some key questions. At the very least be sure to have a conversation with the DJ to determine their sound and style in order to get a feel for their personality. Ask yourself, will the DJ be a good fit for your family and friends? You want to be sure to take into consideration their organizational skills as well. This will give you an idea on how they multi-task and utilize their time. Other vendors as well as venues may be able to share insight on the DJ also. Ideally, you want to know does this entertainer “play well with others”?

There isn’t usually one deciding factor that you can go from when selecting your entertainment. Do your research and ask as many questions as you can think of to be sure you are hiring someone you think will make your special day memorable!

Graduation Celebration

With the school year coming to a close many families are preparing to celebrate with a graduation party. A graduation party is a very special time of year and it doesn’t matter if you’re planning a huge party, or a small intimate gathering Steel City DJ can help with your entertainment needs! Whether you are leaving high school or starting life in the real world after college; every graduate deserves a party to reflect on their accomplishments and create cherished memories!

Plan for Error

Most times, when planning a graduation party friends and family think it is ok to just plug into a speaker or have a friend “DJ”. There are many things that could go wrong when using a professional, so imagine what can go wrong when deciding to use an amateur or hobbyist! With this type of event you want to be sure that all of the music played is appropriate and clean versions. Also, is the equipment being used sub-standard? This could result in feedback and poor sound quality. Keep in mind that since they are not a professional DJ their behavior can be unprofessional, they may show up late for the party or worse, not at all!

All of the DJs at Steel City DJ are employees, not contractors. They have a code of professionalism that is expected of them when performing. We also carry proper liability insurance, back-up equipment (on-site), no hidden fees and a written contract for your review. As we approach your event you will sit with your DJ to discuss the music you want played as well as the atmosphere you want created during your special day.

With wonderful weather full of sunshine and long evenings why not consider having your graduation party outdoors? You can rent a tent and host the event right in your own backyard and avoid additional rental hall fees! The tent is just in case of inclimate weather which is always expected in the Pittsburgh area!


Our goal is to help create the most memorable graduation celebration full of fun for you AND your guests! Call Steel City DJ today @ 412-951-4323 to check the availability for your upcoming graduation celebration!
