Do you have your 21st birthday party coming up? Are you looking for some inspiration of the tracks you want to hear?
I had the pleasure of DJing a 21st birthday party a few days ago for a joint party of 2 friends. Their friends made up most of the party with a handful of adults staying in the barn to supervise, join in and help out. The barn was on farmland and clearly had a lot of work to transition it to the perfect party venue! It looked amazing with it’s rustic vibe of jute, bunting, candles and fairy lights aplenty.
I was booked to start after a meal which was still in progress when I arrived. A quick chat with the party host, and a plan was formed to set up, and then start the disco fully as soon as the meal was finished and the tables and chairs moved out of the way of the dance area. Part way through setting up it was decided my microphone was to be used for a few speeches. I reached a point in setting up which allowed full use of the microphone through my speakers whilst I finished setting up the rest of the lights and booth. This made for a super easy, stressless and quick transition as soon as the party was ready to start.
During the 21st birthday party there were 3 or 4 requests from guests – one of which was asking for some ‘classic’ tunes. The chap requesting this wasn’t sure what he wanted so I said to leave it with me – and bam! As soon as the first chord of Toto Africa played, the whole barn was cheering. Hiring a professional, experienced DJ for your birthday party means you’ll have the best time, safe in the knowledge you and your party goers will be busy dancing and having fun all night long.
