Be honest with me here… are you?

  • Organising an engagement party and trying to figure out a way to keep everyone happy without blowing your budget?
  • Trying to decide on what type of entertainment to book in order to ensure that everyone has a good time?
  • Scared of hiring someone that may turn out to be unprofessional, who doesn’t show up on time and who doesn’t do what they’re supposed to do?
  • Wanting to make a good impression on your family, friends and guests?
  • Worried about all of the hassles of organising the right music, lighting and sound equipment?
  • Fearful that you might not have a large enough collection of music to suite everyone’s tastes?
  • Anxious that you might get charged extra for hidden fees that you are not aware of?
  • Concerned that you might not get your money back if you are unhappy?
  • Apprehensive about organising an engagement party where people do not have fun and no one is up and dancing?
  • Vexed by all of the different options that are available and not sure which option to go with?

“On the night of our film premiere we had the pleasure to be entertained by not just a DJ, not just an MC but a friendly and comedic Host who added to the celebrations of our evening. Loc Tran provided three services to our company, DJ, MC/Host and Comedian. His vast choice of music was greatly enjoyed by over 200 guests at our event throughout the night. The playlist selection had something for everyone and got many people of all ages up and dancing. Loc demonstrated confident skills in being our Master of Ceremonies for this three and half hour exclusive event. His ability to catch audience attention and involve the audience came easily to him. His comedic timing of jokes and initial ice breakers set an entertaining and relaxed mood for all who attended. Considering the amount of initial preparation time we gave to DJ Loc Tran to rehearse he was able to add his own unique and refreshing style in such a short amount of time. We along with our sister companies will certainly be acquiring the delightful, talented and skilful services of DJ Loc Tran in our future events.”

It’s Not Your Fault!

With so many options available it’s hard to know what is the right decision to make.

If you’ve got more money to spend you could go with a band but you will have to make sure that they are all professional and committed to ensuring that your engagement party is a success. But even then it’s highly unlikely that you could get a band to play every song that you request.

If you’ve got guests who are more into karaoke then you’re going to have to find someone who has all of the necessary video and audio equipment. But even then, unless you have family and friends who are really good singers it might not be as much fun for your guests as you imagine.

If you decide to just use an iPod and play a pre-recorded list of songs, it may be cheap and convenient but will it be memorable? I mean, this is supposed to be your special day after all and you do want to make a good impression on your family, friends and guests don’t you?

Keeping everyone happy is not that easy and is this something that you really want to be worried about on your big day when you already have so many other things on your mind?

Why not get someone to take care of all of this stuff, all of the sound, lighting and music requests so that you can focus on the important stuff?

“The event went off without a hitch. The music was fun and kept everyone dancing all night long. Loc was great to work with, very flexible and accommodating of requests. A great time was had by all of the guests, who didn’t want to leave. A big thank you to Loc. From The School of Education – Adelaide Uni Graduation Ball 2010. Cheers. Leah.”

6 Reasons Why You Should Hire A DJ For Your Engagement Party

Having a professional engagement party DJ at your engagement party can make a huge impression on your guests and will show them that you value their presence because a good engagement party DJ can interact with the crowd, bring with them a professional sound system and ensure that your engagement party is a memorable one. Other benefits of having a professional engagement party DJ at your engagement party include cost-effectiveness, no insurance hassles and less wastage.

1. Interacting With The Crowd

A good engagement party DJ…

  • Can act as an MC and make announcements on your behalf if you don’t already have an MC for your engagement party.
  • Has a broad range of music to cater for a large and varied audience.
  • Can take music requests.
  • Has enough experience to know what kind of music to play and at what time.
  • Ensures a smooth transition between songs.

2. Professional Sound System

A good engagement party DJ…

  • Can provide and know how to manage a professional sound system appropriate for your chosen venue.
  • Will take care of the transportation, set-up and pack-down of all of the necessary lighting and sound equipment.
  • Will have access to back up equipment in case something goes wrong.

3. Memorable

A good engagement party DJ…

  • Will help you present a professional image to your guests.
  • Provide ambiance appropriate for the time and mood of your engagement party.

4. Cost-Effectiveness

Generally speaking an engagement party DJ will cost less than hiring say a band because one person can do all of the work necessary. Where as with a band you may have to pay more than one person as well as any other people involved such as roadies required to transport, set-up and pack-down all of the necessary equipment.

5. Insurance

A professional engagement party DJ will have the necessary insurance cover including public liability, products liability and property liability required by some venues and ensure that you are covered in case someone trips on a power cord or if some equipment is damaged.

6. Less Wastage

An engagement party DJ generally consumes less resources such as electricity and therefore will produce less wastage which is not only good for you but for the environment also!

So if you are on a tight budget but want to ensure that your guests have a good time at your engagement party you now have plenty of reasons to consider hiring a professional engagement party DJ!

“Loc created an extremely lively atmosphere at our annual corporate Christmas function. He catered to all the different age groups and different genres of music and went out of his way to get the songs requested. Thanks Loc for your enthusiasm and dedication. Hope to see you again next year!”
Rita Troung – Event Coorindator, ANZIIF – VIC, TAS, SA, Corporate Function

It’s Your Engagement Party Not Mine So You Get The Music That You Request!

I’ve been DJ’ing now for five years and the feedback that I consistently get from clients is that they want to hear the music that they want to hear, they want an engagement party DJ who is good at taking requests.

They want to have a memorable experience where everyone is having fun, feels like they are participating in something special and have the opportunity to get up on the dance floor and show off their awesome moves.

They want someone who is professional, who shows up on time, does what he is supposed to do, treats family, friends and guests with respect and doesn’t have any hidden charges for doing simple things like taking song requests and making special announcements.

“Loc was really awesome tonight because he managed to do most of the requests!! Also he played really good music that suited every taste! Thanks Loc, maybe have you back next year!”

Yes, you will just need to let me know so I can stop the music at the most appropriate time for the special messages to be read.

“In the process of organizing our wedding we had to make – literally – hundreds of decisions about who would be responsible for what, and how much it would cost. And I can say, with all sincerity, that hiring Loc as our DJ was one of the very best decisions we made. His engagement with our event starting long before the big day, when he was fantastically responsive over email regarding our myriad of questions related to music and video concerns. Closer to the day, we appreciated the time he took to visit the venue together with us and go over the plan for the evening .. he even helped us with our dance steps! And finally, on the big night, Loc kept our 100+ guests entertained with a five hour set that included all the songs we asked for – and plenty more that were very suitable for the occasion. In short, Loc was everything that we hoped for, and then some. Trust me when I say that whatever you’re paying Loc, he’s actually worth double that.”

“Loc was an absolute professional, all we had to do was choose the songs we wanted and he took care of the rest. I didn’t have to worry about organising microphones or audio equipment it was all taken care of. We contacted Loc only a few weeks before the wedding reception, we were lucky that Loc was available and was able to do the event on such short notice. Thanks Loc for stepping in and doing some of the MCing to keep everything running smoothly. Overall I’m sure every one of our guests enjoyed the night and I would recommend Loc to anyone who is looking for a professional wedding DJ.”
