Whether you work as a DJ (disc jockey) on a part-time basis or as a full-time gig, it is wise to come up with some kind of introduction that you can say before you start spinning tunes. Sometimes your DJ introduction is just the thing needed to get the crowd hyped up about a fun night of partying. If you make it memorable, it can also lead to more jobs in the future when people begin to recall your DJ name.
Decide on a DJ name that you can use consistently when you work at parties and events like weddings. Having a name is important to branding and creating an identity for your DJ business for future work. Introduce yourself by first stating your DJ name.
Thank everyone for coming out to the party or event. Give a mention to the party organizers. Quote any sponsors or special messages from the organizer of the event. For instance, in some cases wedding planners need you to acknowledge certain guests in a specific order.
Talk briefly about the type of music you play as a part of your DJ services at parties during the introduction. For instance, note whether you play dance, pop or rock tunes. If permitted by the organizers, announce that you’re available for booking and provide your business cards at the DJ table.
Tell everyone to enjoy themselves and get ready for plenty of dancing and entertainment before proceeding to continue with your DJ duties. Add when the party is over and any additional rules of the event if requested by the event planners and location management.
Incorporate elements of your DJ introduction in mix tapes if you produce them to help promote your DJ business.
