We've all been to that party before: guests milling
There's a reason why professional DJs exist - to alleviate exactly this problem. While your home theater system might be great to watch movies in and listen to music while you clean up the kitchen, let's face it: it isn't suitable for a party of any value. The lighting in your home, while possibly ideal for entertaining a dinner party or watching a movie, will be pale and lifeless when thrown onto a party full of people. A professional DJ can fix all of these things.
If you hire a professional DJ, they don't just bring an extensive music collection and the knowledge to play just the right track at just the right time - they also bring the party. Professional DJs bring with them full speaker systems, ensuring that their music will not only be heard by every person in attendance at your party, but will actually be felt by them. Professional DJs don't bring any ordinary lights to parties that they will be playing to - they bring lights that will look like they are alive with the music.
If you're trying to plan the perfect party, whether it's for a birthday, a graduation, a religious event like a bar mitzvah or a confirmation, or even a wedding reception with a thousand expected guests, then the one element you shouldn't forget about is hiring a professional DJ. That's because people affiliate on incredibly powerful levels with both light and sound, two elements which DJs specialize in.
You may very well have an uncle or a brother that claims to have a great sound system. Maybe he even claims that he has an extensive music collection, and has been to so many parties that he has great music taste and an in-depth understanding of play list order. Maybe he really does.
But maybe he doesn't. Is that a risk that you're willing to take? While you may save some money in the short term, would you rather tell your loved ones who found your party boring, lifeless, and lacking in taste that you wanted to save a few bucks and let your Uncle Lenny handle the music?
Instead, hire a professional DJ. They will have spent years perfecting their craft, learning how to read a crowd for just the right song to play every time, and are guaranteed to have a powerful and effective sound system that they bring with them everywhere. There are quite a few ways to guarantee that your party will be a tremendous success, and hiring a professional DJ is definitely one of them.
