Communication Is The Key
With All Your Clients
We finally received a final play list from the bride/groom the night before their wedding. The groom did not want us to play We Are Family at all so he basically told us not to even bring it. We honored his request.
The time arrived and we were on. The mother of the bride asked my DJ if he could play We Are Family cause it's a family tradition. My DJ mentioned to the mother he was sorry but did not have the song with him. The bride came over to the DJ and began yelling at him saying "You Better Have It!" The family of the bride was harassing the DJ since he did not have this song, they were saying to him "What Kind of DJ Are You?"
The family of the bride was very upset, the groom at this time not doing a thing acted like he never said that to the DJ. Good thing we had a DJ in training that night with him. Our DJ asked the other guy if he could run down the street real quick to buy this CD. The other guy had no problem with it. The other DJ immediately went to purchase the CD, but during this time my DJ was very upset, and angry but still maintaining his professionalism.
The bride once again started yelling at our DJ saying it's time to go you loser turn the music off. By this time my DJ did not care if the song was going to get there on time or not he just basically wanted to leave.
The other DJ arrived just in time to play it as their last song. The bride's family was very pleased but not the bride. She was still very upset for a decision her Future Husband made. My DJ tried explaining to her why he did not play or bring the song.
The groom denied saying anything to him and the bride was obviously siding with her "Husband".
Bottom line to all DJ's please make sure all your clients have their playlist in a timely manner.
