Ah… time for rest… and booking!

by on Dec.02, 2009, under Uncategorized

I love this time of the year for many reasons. The start to ski season, Kings basketball season, Football is in full swing, a slower time of the year for wedding season, and of course…. the booking season for next year…
It was a great wedding season this year and I’m going to go back and post some fun blogs from recent weddings in the coming weeks. But it’s full steam ahead for 2010. So far, its looking busier that ever. I have had a fairly steady string of calls in the last two weeks and several consultations. I think the 2009 wedding slowdown might be over!!!
I’m often asked the question, how far out should we book a DJ/MC for our event. Most Wedding Coordinators, web sites, and magazines say it’s somewhere between 5 months and 9 months out. However, the real answer does vary depending on who you are considering.

My answer is always the same. If you meet with someone that fits your idea of what you are
looking for, and he or she is a sole operator, book them as soon as possible, perhaps even on the spot. Trust your first impression. Trust the references you are given. Most importantly, trust that sixth sense that often helps you make a good decision on something so important. If you are not sure and want to see what someone else has to offer go ahead and meet with the other DJ/MC. Just remember that you are not guaranteed that your DJ/MC will be available when you finally make a decision.
If you are not picky as to your exact DJ/MC and are planning on choosing from a company, its a little different. You may be able to find a company that sells you on the DJ/MC that you are looking for within a few months. But again, if you find a company that you trust and have good references from, don’t delay.
With Music and More Entertainment, it is not out of the ordinary to book over a year in advance. Most of my clients on the most popular Saturdays book around 8-9 months out. However, there are many instances that i have a day open just a few weeks out. Especially in 2009, the year of last minute bookings.
So bottom line… if you find someone you like, get them locked in. There is nothing worse than the feeling that you let the good one get away. Call us today at 916.601.4107 and get on the books for an exciting 2010 wedding and event season. You won’t be disappointed!
