An Easy Way to Share Your Must Plays With Us – DJ Cuttlefish

Hey there, lovely humans and party throwers!

We are often asked if we allow our clients to choose the music and the answer is yes, yes, and will always be yes. If you’re throwing a party for your grandma and her friends, you play what grandma and her friends like, right? It’s just the basics of knowing, understanding, and reading your crowd as a DJ, which is how we specialize in giving you and your guests the feels.

The next question after asking if you can choose your own music is usually “how do we share that with you?” Well, everything that we do is online so after you book online you get your own personalized portal into our system where you can view billing and legal, correspondence, and your questionnaire.

Your questionnaire has all kinds of questions like “what mood do you want the lighting to convey?” “should the music be censored?” “please copy and paste your schedule here” “please list your must play songs and the time you want them played” and all kinds of other questions so we can get to know you. The question about your must play songs is where you put what ya want and when ya want it. You can update this anytime and create a list of songs.

We really love our questionnaires and so do our clients, so we decided to take it a step farther and tell you an even more involved and easy way to create your wedding mix as you live your everyday life.

Say you’re at the gym with your headphones in listening to Spotify and a song that makes you wanna shake your groove thing comes on and you think “ohmy, this would be perfect for my reception!”. Just create a playlist on Spotify named “My Wedding” and add jams as you go.

When it comes time to fill out your questionnaire, simply get that playlist link and paste it in there. Our custom built Video DJ Facade is connected to Spotify through LTE and we can pull your songs directly from your playlist and incorporate them into the night smoothly.

So 2017, right? 😉

Q. What song do you think is most popular at events?

Q. What is the wildest event you’ve DJed?

A. This is a really hard question to answer. I don’t think that I can decide what single event has been the wildest. But some of the wildest parties that I have DJed recently have been corporate parties. I think people that work hard play hard.

Q. What is your favorite part of DJing special events?

A. I love when guest are excited about dancing and having a great time. It feels good to see people enjoy my music selection. I enjoy the collective energy of a full dance floor. 

DAY’S MOST RECENT REVIEWS:

I am extremely impressed and excited by the service we received and the level of professionalism and knowledge by Day. Day was incredibly easy to work with and express ideas to and knew exactly what we wanted. There was absolutely nothing left lacking and I would make this decision over and over again. Day was very talented at reading the crowd and what kind of music they needed/wanted and our guests had a great time. It was truly everything we needed and wanted.

Day was fantastic! He incorporated so many of our loved songs and kept our party moving with very little direction on our part. Everyone danced all night!

Lit the roof at my wedding! I told him I wanted an epic dance party for my wedding and that’s exactly what I got. He was very accommodating.”

Day was great. We wanted the music to flow with the emotions throughout our wedding day, and Day definitely delivered. He was really accommodating with our playlist and requests. He was super professional and did not require any hand holding or censoring. Class act through and through.
