Tell us a little bit about your business.
Plenty DJ Agency is a small group of experienced Pittsburgh DJs that decided to combine forces after working in the nightlife and private events industry for many years.
We strive to make bookings very easy through our site and are always happy and excited to take on new events!
What makes your work unique?
Each one of our DJs is able to bring a unique perspective to any event or party. The one thing that sets us apart from most DJs in the city is our undying love and passion for music. We have tackled the most unique events with a broad array of music that has ranged from rock to pop to hip-hop, funk, soul, oldies, dancehall, house, EDM, lounge music, and more. Everything is mixed tastefully and we believe our main job is to read the dance floor to see what’s working and what’s not to make sure the crowd has a fun, memorable experience. One of the things we look forward to most is talking to our clients about their music interests. All five of our DJs also play on the traditional DJ setup, which is two turntables.
What is your ideal client like?
We appreciate when a couple has a vision for their wedding and knows exactly what they are looking for in terms of sound and feel. But we also enjoy when couples give us creative control to run with what we think will work best for their crowd.
How do you get to know a couple’s taste in music?
We first ask about previous weddings they’ve attended to see if there’s anything that stood out that they enjoyed or disliked. After that, a quick chat about their age goes a long way. What did they listen to in high school, through their twenties, thirties, etc? The next step would be to list 10-20 songs that really mean something to them personally and then lastly, to name a few songs that have meaning in their relationship.
How do you motivate guests to get on the dance floor?
Music is the answer! And the microphone definitely helps too. We have been doing this a very long time and know when a song is playing too long, when to switch up the tempo, and when to change gears in terms of mood and music genre. It all comes back to understanding and reading the specific crowd that you have in front of you.
How would you describe your emcee style?
Classy, never corny. When the party starts and the dance floor starts to fill up, our microphone work ramps up to get everyone excited and ready to party. We also understand that sometimes a great crowd just needs great music and mixing to keep them going all night.
