1. Discuss Your Wedding Vibe with your DJ!

The whole atmosphere of your wedding is affected by the music that’s playing! That is exactly why it’s so important to discuss about your desires for the big day with your DJ. If you’re looking for a fun night, you’re going to want to talk about what fun means to you personally. Be thorough when you talk to your DJ! Tell them how you want people to feel and what makes a moment matter to you!

With Keenan, the MillionDollaMan, you’re going to get more than just some music playing in the background. He is way more than just your normal DJ, he’s an entertainer! He works as a hype man and truly crafts an atmosphere that will be completely unforgettable! Your DJ should be able to control the entire atmosphere with the musical selections they are choosing. People naturally vibe off other human beings. So, hiring a DJ that can really influence a crowd and get them where you want them to go is key!

2. Discuss Your Musical Interests with Your DJ!

The second most important thing to discuss with your DJ before your wedding day is your musical interests! You want to make sure what you want to hear actually makes it into your wedding and reception. He always encourages them to make sure that the songs they choose are personal to them. Every song is a reflection of who the couple is. Nothing can tell your story better than a song.

In addition, Keenan recognizes that every DJ has his or her natural playlist. It’s important for a couple to find a DJ that has the same type of musical interest as they do. Keenan’s playlist is usually customized to the needs and wants of the client. However it has to be close to his natural skill set in order for him to accept the event.

Keenan usually asks couples for a few songs they know for a fact they want to hear throughout their reception. This gives him a general idea of the music they would like to hear throughout the night and builds off of that! Chemistry is everything and Keenan is watching the couple throughout the night to ensure he’s hitting the nail on the head musically.

3. Discuss Your Expectations with Your DJ!

You can’t expect people to read your mind, and the same saying goes for your DJ. Though, Keenan has loads of natural talent and energy, he’s not a mind reader. His first priority is making sure he meets your expectations and that the bride is happy throughout the night!  Keenan does whatever it takes by any and all means necessary to ensure that she’s smiling from ear-to-ear from the ceremony until the end of the reception. His number one goal is to create memories for both families that they will remember for years to come.
