Advice on Choosing a Mobile Karaoke DJ
A mobile karaoke DJ (also known as a KJ) should provide a complete karaoke setup for your event.
Karaoke DJ Equipment
Equipment used by karaoke DJs varies greatly. Unfortunately some people operate very cheap setups, or don't know how to setup the equipment correctly or how to adjust it for each singer. This has given karaoke a bad name over the years. It is always worth checking what experience your karaoke DJ has, what equipment they are using and that it's suitable for the size of venue you will be using (small tinny speakers in a large hall or deafening volume in a smaller area are not desirable). Also check that they carry spares and search out testimonials from their previous customers. Recommendation from satisfied customers is always the best way of choosing your Karaoke DJ.
Karaoke Song Selection
Karaoke song selection also varies greatly from one supplier to the next. Some karaoke providers carry tens of thousands of songs in digital format (on a laptop for instance). Others will only have a few hundred songs. In practice, a well balanced collection of around 3000 songs covering all eras and genres of music, including all the karaoke classics, should satisfy the vast majority of karaoke fans. If possible, ask your karaoke DJ to supply a list of their karaoke tracks so you and your guests can check through them beforehand.
Typically a Karaoke will be combined with a Disco to ensure a great atmosphere is maintained throughout the event and those guests who don't participate in singing can still have a great time and request music to dance to. Always check with your chosen DJ on the extent of their music collection and the genres they cover. Some DJs specialise in certain musical genres. Typically a Karaoke DJ will be extremely versatile and cover most genres, but it's always worth checking with them and ensuring that the music they will play will be suitable for your event and expected audience.
Most karaoke DJs will carry disco lighting to add atmosphere to your event. The lighting setup required will obviously vary depending upon the venue you are using and the occasion, so always check with your DJ that suitable lighting will be available.
A mobile Karaoke DJ should have Public Liability Insurance (PLI) and carry the certification with them. The level of insurance required varies from venue to venue, typically from £2 million to £10 million. Always check your venue's requirements and that your selected Karaoke DJ meets the requirements.
In summary, mobile Karaoke DJ hire is the best way to achieve a hassle free evening of music and singing without having to
worry about equipment setup, what music to play, changing discs and trying to keep everybody happy.
