Tell me a little bit about your business!
Redford DJs is a DJ company focused on providing the perfect event for any couple. We believe that an incredible wedding starts with extremely happy newlyweds, so we work with our couples to put together the ideal reception based on their preferences. We customize every event to provide the best music with the best emcee personality. We don’t do set music playlists; no two events are exactly the same. We are there for the couple. It’s truly their day. We just want to make sure they have an incredible party to start the best journey of their lives.
What makes your work unique?
We are flexible. We have many years of experience but we love and respect the fact this is their ONE day to celebrate THEIR love. We treat every wedding as the most important event we’ve ever been a part of.
Our experience is our biggest benefit. We rely on that experience to keep the day moving at the speed the couple likes – nothing gets missed and everyone has a fantastic time.
We love being extremely accessible to our couples. If they have a question, I want to help them instantly, even if it’s two years until the big day! It’s too important to put off.
What is your ideal client like?
Our ideal client is excited to work with professionals they trust with the most important elements of their day. Obviously, we’d love couples that want to dance all night! If dancing and having a great party isn’t important to you, maybe we aren’t a great fit. But our perfect client knows we do this professionally, trusts our opinions, but knows that we truly see it as their day and will do everything within our power to make it happen exactly as they have always dreamed.
How do you get to know your client’s taste in music?
Communication and our online planner. We utilize an online planner that couples can access 24/7 leading up to their wedding. When we get close to the big day, we schedule a time to discuss all the details. We always ask their concerns and expectations for dancing. We do what we can to make it become a reality. Or better!
How do you motivate guests to get on the dance floor and bust some moves?
It’s about being flexible and energetic. Some crowds need a little more motivation than others. Being involved, never losing focus, and finding just the right song or genre to motivate a crowd is what experience does for us. With hundreds of weddings under our belt, we’ve seen it all. And we’ve found the way to make everyone have a great time.
How would you describe your emcee style?
Classic and classy; we aren’t the showboat, steal-the-spotlight kind of emcee. Some couples look for that but that’s not us. The day is about the couple and we want the attention on the guests of honor. It truly is about them.
