Hiring A Bar Mitzvah DJ: Questions to Ask and Opinions To Offer

Regardless of market size, how do you know who’s the cream of the Disc Jockey crop? As you speak with DJs, pay particular attention to their professionalism on the phone. It often tends to spill over into their DJ style. A strained conversation doesn’t bode well for your piece of mind. Mobile Disc Jockey publications and trade groups exist. Does your DJ subscribe? Is he a participating member? Ask.

And ask about a request policy. A good DJ should work some guest requests into his routine. However, don’t expect him to play them all. They may be inappropriate for the mood of the event. A DJ isn’t just a record changer. He wants to motivate the crowd. The art of DJing is timing, and forcing him to ignore his instincts by playing every request will result in an “uneven” (and less fun) party. But DJs aim to please and anticipate requests. (I receive, in large part, the same ones at every affair!)

It’s OK to provide a list of a few songs and tell your DJ that they’re “Must Have.” But don’t make a list pages long. Also remember, given the opportunity to make that list, the “nature of the beast” is that 13-year olds are self-centered. They’ll always list their favorite tunes, giving no thought to adult preferences or DJ leeway. They won’t notice, nor care about, the adults who are sitting there gritting their teeth to the Top 10 on MTV.

Beats Per Minute should remain constant throughout a “dance” song. Slow dances have 60-80 BPM and up-tempo numbers have twice as many. If a tune goes through several rhythm changes, it’s quite difficult to dance to. And occasionally, adults won’t consider “danceability,” either. I recently played a party where a gentleman requested “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” by Crosby, Stills and Nash. We all grew up listening to this tune and, while I carry the song, I didn’t want to play it because you simply can’t dance to it. I knew that if I played it, it would clear the dance floor! Not only that, but the song is over seven minutes long. An empty floor for SEVEN MINUTES…watch the DJ start to schvitz! He’ll need a bath towel for the perspiration.

Your child will also give no thought to song lyrics. Unless you’re on top of today’s CDs (many have Parental Advisories), you may be shocked at some lyrics. And even if you happen to enjoy those songs yourself, Aunt Tilly might faint!

Your DJ should be aware of the lyrics, but you can still supply him with a “Don’t Play” list. Lyric issues aside, some other songs are silly, but they’re fun. And that’s really all you want your affair to be, right? So welcome those novelty dances and interactive songs (which don’t require a dance partner) like The Hokey Pokey, Macarena, Hands Up, Bunny Hop, The Electric Slide or Cha-Cha Slide. If your DJ plays one or two, or three or four, it’ll motivate your guests and occupy the dancefloor. (Your DJ will suck in his breath and play them all. He may be weary of these tunes, but they’re his bread and butter songs.)

Variety in music is essential and your DJ will bring a much larger assortment, but time only allows for 60-70 songs in a typical 4-hour show. Having the proper 65 is what’s important. DJs won’t track through all of Engelbert Humperdinck’s Greatest Hits at your Mitzvah, just as they won’t play Heavy Metal or Rap music at a Class of ’60 Reunion.

A Bar/Bat Mitzvah party range duration is 3 to 5 hours. How long should yours be? If your function is for adults as well as children, plan 3 or 4 hours for a luncheon and 4 or 5 for an evening affair. NOTE: If your party is for your child’s friends only, 3 hours is sufficient. That fourth hour at a kids-only party seems to last much longer than 60 minutes!

Are you planning a luncheon or an evening reception? There are pros and cons to both. Either way, you have plenty of company.

It doesn’t mean a thing one way or the other but, for the past several years, the percentage of my clients having luncheons has been increasing. Last year, it was just about a draw.

But the time of day is irrelevant. Your guests and your child’s friends expect two things: food and fun. You take care of the food. Your DJ will handle the rest.

River City Cuckoo 1260BB 60 Minute Antique Wood Hourglass Sand Timer - 12 Inches Tall


River City Cuckoo 1260BB 60 Minute Antique Wood Hourglass Sand Timer – 12 Inches Tall


$199.29


This beautiful chalet style one day musical German cuckoo clock features wooden hands, a wood dial with Roman numerals, and a warm light yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird.. The dancers revolve on their platform every hour and half-hour while the lady rings the bell in the bell tower and the waterwheel turns. This clock also plays music on the hour & half-hour alternating between two different twenty-two note melodies: Edelweiss & The Happy Wanderer. Three cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by three separate brass chains.The hand-carved pendulum continously swings back and forth which controls the timing of the clock. If your cuckoo clock's timing should ever need adjustment, you can control the speed of your clock by sliding the shield up or down the pendulum stick. Sliding the shield down causes the cuckoo clock to run slightly slower, while sliding the shield up makes the cuckoo clock run slightly faster.On every hour the cuckoo bird emerges from a swinging door above the clock dial and counts the hour by cuckooing once per hour. (Example: At one o'clock the bird will cuckoo once. At eight o'clock the bird will cuckoo eight times) The half hour is announced with one cuckoo call. There is a sound shut-off device beneath the base of the cuckoo clock. Pushing the lever up disables the cuckoo birds cuckoo and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the cuckoo clock to play the music and cuckoo call.The 30 hour all brass mechanical Regula movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once per day by raising the three pine cone weights. One weight powers the time, one weight powers the music and dancers, and the other weight powers the cuckoo bird and cuckoo call. *Great effort has been made to portray each cuckoo clock as accurately as possible. As with many handmade items, the exact coloration and carving may vary slightly from clock to clock. We consider this to be a special part of their character. Lady rings bell and waterwheel turns Mechanical music box plays two alternating melodies on the hour and half hour Cuckoo bird cuckoos the hour at the top of every hour Dancers revolve on turntable every hour and half-hour Two year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects.

Supreme Pondmaster AP-60 Pond Air Pump with Diffuser - 5500 cu. in. per Minute


Supreme Pondmaster AP-60 Pond Air Pump with Diffuser – 5500 cu. in. per Minute


$127.95


This pump has enough uses to drive your water year-round. It is durable and useful enough to become a vital part of your aquarium and pond tool-box for years to come! Ideal for aerating large aquariums or ponds; improving fish health through improved oxygenation; powering a skimmer; or keeping outdoor ponds from freezing over completely. Durable design holds up well to the pounding of the outdoors; while quiet operation allows it to blend well into your aquarium setup or backyard. Includes a 6′ cord. Pond applications: Connect one end of a length of hose to the outlet on the pump. Hose length is the distance from the permanent location of the pump to the water’s edge plus the depth of the water. (Note: a short section of hose and 2 clamps are included – these parts are for aquarium installations and should be disregarded if pump is to be used on a pond). Connect the supplied barbed diffuser to the other end of the hose. The diffuser needs to be weighted since it is very buoyant when filled with air. Attach the diffuser and about 4” of hose to a heavy object; such as a brick or rock; with a cable tie. (Do not use a weight that will rust or leach toxic substances.) Locate pump in a protected area. It should be covered to shelter it from rain and the elements. Be sure to allow for ventilation. Locate pump so that it can not fall in to the water. Note: In winter; damp air can condense onto the inside wall and freeze the hose. This can eventually block the hose completely; therefore it is important to check frequently during periods of freezing temperatures. Aquarium applications: Connect one end of the short length of included hose to the outlet on the pump and fasten with the included hose clamp. Connect the supplied barbed diffuser to the other end of the hose and fasten with the included hose clamp. Run a length of airline hose from each of the 14 outlet barbs on the diffuser to the aquarium and connect each to an air stone. If the air flow is too great; purchase and install an adjustable flow valve for each affected airline. Always let some air escape; do not restrict the flow of air totally with the valve. Maintenance: When airflow slows down; it is time to change the diaphragms and flapper valves. Disconnect the pump from the AC receptacle. Remove the cover lid. Unscrew the diaphragm/flapper combination assembly from either end of the pump and separate the 2 parts. Remove the flapper valves and replace with the supplied parts. Be sure to maintain the same orientation of the flapper valves. Remove the black; round dough nut-like diaphragm and replace with the supplied parts. Replace the diaphragm/flapper valve. Replace the cover lid. Size: Pump is 7.75” x 9.5” x 8.5” high. Uses 5/8” tubing or 3/16” tubing with included diffuser
