What makes a great entertainment company GREAT!!!


What makes a great entertainment company GREAT!!!

I start off by saying entertainment company because the letters DJ seem to have a bad stigma nowadays. It seems like everyone is or wants to be a dj and everyone seems to think they know how, but what we truly are in the purest sense of the word are entertainers. So what makes for a great entertainment company? Let's start with most the most obvious and that is the DJ. We all know so great djs that can spin the best tunes and get the dance floor rocking and keep the music flowing all night. This is not an easy thing to do because first, you have to have the right music for the crowd you're entertaining. If you are djing a 70th birthday and the crowd is made up of mostly of people that grew up in the 50's and 60's, playing mostly newer top 40 and hiphop or house and techno won't cut it. Music selection is key and of course we all know those people that hover over the dj table all night with requests because they know it's gonna fill the dance floor even though your playing some high energy and the song requested drops the beat down significantly. These are all learned skills and keeping a great flow of music and knowing when to play what is a valuable skill. Next we have the MC, the man in front of the microphone. There is nothing more important for a big event such as weddings, sweet 16s, mitzvahs, quinceaneras, and the like than to have a seasoned and professional MC. If you are not familiar with what it stands for he is the Master of Ceremonies. He is the one that will be controlling the flow of the evening, making all those important announcements and introductions. A well versed MC will bring your event to a new level of fun and interaction but the hazards are those that love the microphone too much. We here at FMJ Productions believe that this is your event so the focus is always about you or the guest of honor, not us, the mc or the dj. We have all been to events where the MC is constantly on the mic, yelling for people to load up the dance floor, let's get this party started and sometimes even seeming a little rude or inappropriate with some comments. Then we have the other extreme where you won't hear anything other than a couple of announcements and that's it. There is a fine line between talking too much and not talking enough and those seasoned pros will make a difference in your event. The most important part of being a great entertainment company is always providing the client with what they are looking for and helping them in the planning of the event. There are many DJs that don't want to be bothered or feel it's not their job to help in the planning. Just give them the special songs to be played and maybe a small playlist and they take it from there and see youth day of the event. That is what truly separates and makes the great entertainment companies GREAT! If you're having one these big events that I have mentioned, planning is the key to making sure that everything goes well and smooth. We meet with our clients personally and at least twice after the initial meeting to go over everything from beginning to end. WE get to know a little about our clients and in some cases alot and that just makes for a more personal connection that lasts even after the event and makes for a great referral. There is nothing wrong with going above and beyond what you feel your scope of work should be and this translates into a better connection with your client, a better and smoother event and a better review of services and more referrals later on. The last thing that makes a great entertainment company is being able to provide not only your services but to be able to recommend others for services that you cannot or do not offer. Having a list of professionals that offer other services is just a benefit for your clients and you as well and that again goes toward going above and beyond what others do. Networking is such a key aspect of any business today that any entertainment company would be doing themselves a disservice by not knowing who rents limousines, floral arrangements or invitations, interior event decor, photography and video services , and any other typer of service that is not offered by your entertainment company. So for your next event event, whether it's a small backyard party or large elegant affair, look to FMJ Productions, a great entertainment company that always holds the clients wants and needs as our #1 priority and we always go above and beyond to make sure that your event is memorable, special and unique. Whether you're looking for DJ & MC, photobooths, lighting decor or other services that we do not offer, we can help you get exactly what you want. Frank M.
