What to Expect
DJ Michael Johnson will arrive 45-90 minutes early with the appropriate equipment specified in contract. At minimum, he will have 2 - 1500 watt speakers on stands, 2 wireless microphones and some very basic dance lighting. Michael will be dressed appropriately for the event. Generally, Michael wears a suit, but can wear a tuxedo for very formal events or khakis and a polo shirt for informal events. He will never wear jeans and tennis shoes.
Michael will arrange the speakers to directly face the dance and attempt to limit volume of music so that people that are not dancing can continue to carry on their conversations. Lastly, Michael will play a variety of music that will appeal to all ages at the event. Michael will make all announcements needed. He will avoid "cheesy" jokes as well as "cheesy" music (unless specifially requested).
