Choosing The Best Event DJs
Questions for the DJ
Often people are unsure of what to ask a DJ they are thinking of hiring. This makes planning an event much harder for everyone. So, we want to offer you some questions to ask a potential DJ so you can be sure you choose the best event DJ.
What kind of events do you DJ?
You want to be sure that your DJ has experience with many different kinds of people and events, not just one. This allows them to be expert at handling difficult scenarios should they arise.
How do you get a crowd excited?
Do they get the party going easily and in a way that works for your event? If you are looking for a certain feel, then your DJ needs to be able to meet that while keeping the guests engaged.
Do you a list of available songs?
Looking through a list of songs the DJ can play will help you choose what you want and don't want played at your event ahead of time. If you have a specific song for one of your special dances, it is best to check if the DJ is able to get the song you need.
How do you do song requests?
We all know that someone at your event will be sure to ask for a certain song. So how does your DJ handle this? Do they ask you about each song request? Do they make their own judgment? Or do they stick strictly to the playlist you picked? Make sure this is something that you and your event DJ talk about so that you are sure there are no crazy surprise songs popping up at your event.
Who will be there, and do you have a backup?
Many larger special event DJ companies have lots of DJs who work for them. Your DJ from Any Event Productions will meet or talk with you before the event so you get to know who they are and what they are like. You will get to help your DJ build the perfect entertainment plan for your event. We want to make sure that we meet your expectations. Unexpected things happen all the time, however, so make sure you both know what the back-up plan is if something does go wrong or the DJ can't make it.
What other services do you offer?
Lots of event DJs offer other services with their event packages. Some have special lighting. Some offer LED Dance Floors for fun effects. Knowing what the DJ offers can help make your event one-of-a-kind.

I don't think I left the dance floor for more than five minutes the night of my wedding! We met with Brodrick a few months before the wedding and we knew it was a perfect fit. He understood the type of music we wanted to play and matched us perfectly with DJ Smooth B. Brodrick/DJ Smooth B was the perfect MC and also kept the dance floor packed all night! He really read the audience and changed the music according the crowd, which worked out well for our wide age range at the reception. We had a ton of song requests and he played them all, plus a few that really got the crowd going. I would recommend DJ Smooth B or anyone at Any Event Productions to anyone - not to mention they are super affordable. Brodrick really takes the time to get to know you as a couple so he can make a great fit.
DJ Smooth B was our DJ, and he was terrific, my friend had hired him to DJ for her wedding. I saw her videos on social media, so I decided to ask for his information. I then found out he provided a fantastic photo booth service and was able to book b oth services with him and saved nearly $800 and got more then what the other company was offering. My husband and I finally got to meet him to book him. He was very professional and looked very experienced with weddings, and we were entirely right. He was well organized and helped us plan our wedding and gave us great suggestions plus knew so much of our venue since he had already done a few weddings there. Finally, the day came; he was there earlier than expected to set up and made the site look so beautiful with his Uplighting. I was thrilled, and all of my friends and family loved him, he did such a great job pleasing all my guest with excellent music selection, that we all broke into a right amount of sweat.
We contacted Any Event Productions after my sister-in-law's wedding in Sept. 2018. Luckily for us, Brodrick/ DJ Smooth B was available to DJ our wedding on 02.28.2020 and he nailed it! Brodrick was SO responsive and organized in the months leading up to our wedding, including coordinating with another musician playing at our ceremony. He set up 3 speaker systems - at our ceremony site, the cocktail hour, and of course the reception. He did a fantastic job and kept the dance floor packed all night long. Family members that hadn't danced in years were out there with us, which meant so much and made it a night to remember. I highly recommend DJ Smooth B with Any Event Productions based on my experience with them--highly professional, talented, and all around great to work with.
Brodrick, with Any Event Productions, was professional and highly skilled. But more importantly, he and his crew were flexible, helpful, patient, and gracious. We had a tough situation on the load-in day, and he and his team patiently and diligently made sure everything was done as quickly and as completely as possible before the opening service. Throughout the week, Brodrick was not only an excellent technician but a spiritual asset as well. We would highly recommend Brodrick and his team over at Any Event Productions for any event, whether corporate or private. As a former professional audio engineer who worked in both Hotel and corporate events, I know it is scarce to find companies with this combination of skill, professionalism, and understanding of how functions work.
If I could give Any Event Productions 10 stars I would! Brodrick and his crew were absolutely AMAZING! I told him exactly what I wanted and he definitely went above and beyond to make my day exactly how I envisioned it! He had everyone on the dance f loor all night long. At the end of the night Brodrick got an encore from all our guests and ended up staying to play a few extra songs! That's how amazing he is! Brodrick and his crew got so many compliments from all my guests. Also, he kept the flow of the night going so well, I never had to worry about a thing at the reception! I cannot say enough good things about Any Event Productions! So if you are looking for a highly professional and super fun DJ who will definitely go above and beyond for you then I highly highly recommend DJ Smooth B with Any Event Productions!!
Brodrick was amazing and super patient! My wedding moved from Dallas to Houston and he moved with me! He gathers all the necessary info to determine what you want. Most importantly, his set up is awesome; the DJ booth has a screen on it and the light ing made my room beautiful! My guests loved the photo booth mirror! You HAVE to get the Dancing on the Clouds with Sparklers! It was my wedding day and it was beautiful, but as an Event Planner, I can recommend Any Event Productions whole-heartedly for any client! Class Act!
DJ Smooth B did an awesome job as the DJ for our wedding! He helped us coordinate and made sure to check in with us before any major events during the wedding. We even got a handful of compliments from our guests on his music selection, and he kept the dance floor going until the very end. We didn't give him much direction on what type of music we were looking for, but he definitely had a good pulse on the crowd and catered to the group which was mostly late 20s and early 30s. DJ Smooth B was also very responsive from the very beginning and made planning as easy as possible.
