You must see the band or DJ you
want live at least twice to get a feel for
the kind of music they play and the
kind of energy they generate.
It's great if they want to show you a
video or give you a CD, but remem-
ber, videos can be edited and CDs can
be polished to perfection.
If you haven't already seen them live,
make arrangements to see them do their
thing. If you saw them at a friend's party
and think they are perfect for you, make
arrangements to see them again — this
time with a more critical eye. and ear.
• Are they willing to work with
Try to have some idea of what kind
of music you'd like them to play at
what times, but be willing to listen to
suggestions as well, say experts.

A lot of people say they want their
party to be just like so-and-so's party,
but in reality that's the last thing they
want. Even though your sister's wed-
ding was the best wedding you ever
attended, you don't want your special
day to be a carbon copy.
The band or DJ you ultimately
select must be flexible enough to make
your party unique:
Can they play that obscure
Broadway show tune you and your
father have been singing together since
you were 4?
Can they play edited versions of
your favorite rap songs that won't
offend your parents?
Can they throw in a few golden
Oldies for your father and grandfather?
Can they switch gears when the
food is late or the guests are getting
antsy at cocktail hour.
These are things you have to ask
anybody you're considering hiring to
perform at your wedding:
involved in the process has a say in the
party plans and music. If the guests of
honor aren't having any fun, nobody
will have any fun.
• Tell them what you want.
Any good party band or DJ wants
your party to be the best party in
Detroit, the Midwest, the United
States and possibly the world.
If your father wants to sing, or your
mother does not want to be lifted up
on a chair, say so. If you like a certain
kind of music, ask for it. If you think
you need remedial dance lessons, say
so. See if you can get a little coaching.
If the DJ can't or won't accommodate
you, look for another entertainer.
