Among the 26 disc jockeys that Absolute Entertainment has available, each one is different with their own personal talents, vibe and music preference. That is why they make sure their couples are matched with the most compatible disc jockey through a “customized music demonstration,” according to Jacob Jensen, one of their professional disc jockeys.
“We want to uphold the same standards as photographers and caterers do,” Jensen said. “Couples should always do a live demonstration before hiring a DJ. We want our couples to meet with us in person and show them what they are imagining. It’s just more personable.”
Some couples do not know what they are envisioning that’s why a live demonstration is such a benefit. It allows the DJ to show music samples that would be played during the cocktail hour, dinner and reception. In addition, Absolute Entertainment offers Skype demonstrations for out-of-town couples for their convenience.
“You experience the sound system for clarity and fidelity as well as the volume level,” wrote Ken Rochon, another professional disc jockey at Absolute Entertainment, in his Coffee vs. Music article. “There is no practicing or experimenting with regard to your preferences on your wedding day because the demo serves as a testing location for what works and doesn’t work for you.”
Each music demonstration lasts around an hour with on average 10-20 songs played. By showing their expertise in the music industry, your DJ will be able to make everyone happy on your big day – even the old folks.
“We want your personalities to shine through,” Jensen said. “Music defines a moment! It’s whatever the couple wants. It has to be their style.”
Absolute Entertainment has had such positive feedback that even if a couple doesn’t book with them, they recommend them just for their “customized music demonstration” aspect. In addition, Absolute Entertainment offers Skype demonstrations for out-of-town couples for their convenience.
“Seeing the DJs at Absolute Entertainment work was an absolutely amazing experience,” said Natalie Franke, co-founder and editor of Bayside Bride. “Each of the DJs has such a unique style and way of mixing music. I was absolutely captivated by the overall experience of hearing the demo.”
One of the main goals Jensen mentioned was that if he can’t see the bride and groom during the reception, because the dance floor is packed, then he is one happy DJ. Couples need to have fun, let loose and dance the night away. “At weddings you have no idea what you are in for, that’s the fun part,” Jensen said.
