When you hire a professional DJ for your private or corporate event, you gain advantages from the years of training and experience that a pro will have in his corner. Here are some of the things that a professional DJ spends years perfecting.
Reading an audience – A pro DJ can read a room and know what song needs to happen next in order to provide the maximum amount of enjoyment.
Beat matching – Your DJ isn’t letting one song end and the next begin. He is actively changing the beats per minute to match the song and let one flow seamlessly into the next.
Phrasing – Have you ever wondered why a DJ always has headphones on? It takes precision to line up the beats and begin the next track at exactly the optimal moment. In the headphones, the DJ can hear the tracks line up before he plays it for the crowd.
Equalizing – This involves adjusting the high, low, and mid-tones of the song to match the needs of the audience and the songs that are being mixed.
Song choice – A pro will know when to ramp things up even more, and when to bring things down so the partiers can get a breather and the lovers can get on the dance floor.

If you are planning a corporate event in California, you need to be sure to avoid some of the classic mistakes that event planners make in regard to businesses. Here are a few no-nos when it comes to corporate event entertainment.
Not hiring any entertainment at all – Your employees work hard, and they deserve to be rewarded. When its time for a corporate event, whether it is a holiday party, a retreat, or a product release, be sure to hire a professional DJ to liven up the party.
Not thinking about your attendees – Remember that these are coworkers and may not necessarily be used to socializing with one another. There are going to be a lot of things that will help everyone relax including good food, good drinks, and a good DJ.

If you operate a small to medium-size company (SMB), you may not have the same size events as a large corporation. However, that doesn’t make your event less important. Whether you are celebrating the release of a new product or planning a holiday party, here are a few ways to make the event something special for your close-knit team.
Plan the right meal – One of the most important components of a corporate event is the food. Whether you are planning a sit-down dinner or appetizers and a cocktail hour, be sure to hire a good caterer so everyone gets enough to eat and drink.
Chose an appropriate venue – The size of your company and whether or not the attendees include family members will determine the size venue that you need. Then you want to be sure that it has the right amenities for your guests, the food service team, and your entertainment.
Hire the right entertainer – If you want the right sound equipment for announcements and speeches and the best music to get everyone hyped, you need a great corporate DJ. Hiring a DJ who also has club experience is another must if you want to get everyone dancing later in the evening.

When holding a corporate event, selecting the right entertainment is a must. Here are some mistakes to avoid when hiring a DJ for your corporate event.
Not hiring someone with pro equipment – Hiring an amateur or letting a company member DJ the event is usually a huge disaster. Sound problems and other miscues can ruin the event and be embarrassing for the brand.
Not matching the entertainment to the event – There are many types of corporate gatherings. Whether it is a luncheon, a holiday party, an executive retreat, or a team building event, you want to be sure that your entertainment fits the mood. Hiring a DJ who has a wide range of expertise and an expansive music playlist will help you match the mood of the event.
Hiring a DJ with no corporate experience – A corporate event has a very different feel than a wedding or a club. It’s okay, even good, for your DJ to have experience in other types of events as well. However, you don’t want to hire a DJ for a corporate event who has no experience in working with businesses.

There are a couple of mistakes corporate event planners make when hiring a DJ for special events. The first is hiring a DJ who specializes in only corporate events. The second is hiring a DJ who only has experience in the club. Here are the reasons these are both mistakes and why you need to hire a DJ who has experience in both environments.
Why You Need More than Just a Corporate DJ
Corporate DJs may have the proper decorum that you are looking for, but they may lack the energy you need at your event. Whether they struggle to get people who are not used to socializing together on the dance floor or they simply don’t have the right music and equipment, the event can end up being a little flat.
Why a Club DJ May Not Be the Right Fit
On the other hand, a club DJ can get people on the dance floor, but they may not know the proper way to dress and comport themselves for your corporate event. This can result in awkward situations and maybe even some embarrassment for the company.
The Best Corporate DJ with Club Experience
This is why you want DJ Mikey Beats for your next corporate event. When someone has experience in the corporate world and on the club scene, you know that you are going to have an entertainer who can get the party started and get everyone to have a good time, while still maintaining the proper appearance and decorum that you want your event to have.

But you have the opportunity to make this year’s corporate special event different. Hiring the right corporate events DJ can turn a boring party into an extravaganza that employees look forward to all year long.
Why an Ordinary DJ Won’t Do
There are a few mistakes that your average DJ is going to make at a corporate party.
Jump in with both feet – You have to warm up a corporate party. This isn’t a group of people who have been friends for life. It takes a little while for things to get going and a real pro can help loosen people up.
Limited music range – Not only do you need a wide array of music to appeal to a diverse group of people, but you also don’t want your DJ having to tell person after person that they don’t have a song that has been requested.
They make excuses – If the dance floor is empty and no one is having a good time, the average DJ is going to blame it on the crowd. It’s always up to the DJ to get the party started.

I asked Mike for more details and he had to call me to explain. The call lasted about 20 minutes with him detailing the exact vibe he was looking for. He also said that I would have to dress in costume. I told him I was all about it. He didn’t know the type of music needed, he just told me that the event would be Steampunk themed. I like events that are out of the ordinary, especially when the music isn’t your typical event music. Ahead of me was some real research.
My wedding motto is that I represent my clients musically but when it comes to corporate events, it’s different. Every corporate event is different and it all depends on all the details and theme. In this case, it was Steam Punk themed so first I needed to learn what a Steampunk is. After a quick Wiki search I found that Steampunk “is a sub genre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.” You’ll find that Steampunk fashion and decor has various sprockets, cranks and gears incorporated into it. Here is an example of a decorative piece at the event.
My client had no idea what Steampunk music was but knew he wanted it to match. I quickly learned while I was researching that Steampunk doesn’t have a set genre. Rather it is a mix of genres from classical to ragtime. For this event, I decided to focus on a sub genre called electro swing. The event was to feature various performers from acrobats to contortionists so I envisioned music close to what you would hear at a carnival on acid.
Once at the venue, I sound checked and jumped into my costume. I must say, this was one of the most fun corporate events I have ever played.
The Hotel Del Coronado is as iconic to the San Diego skyline as is the Coronado Bridge. I get the honor to perform there as a corporate event DJ a few times a year. Sometimes my clients want me to provide music for awards shows while others just want me to ignite the dance floor. On this occasion, I was to play music to set the vibe.
Event on the sand
I had been prepped by the event organizer that the event was on the beach. When I walked up, the size and scale of the event was much bigger than I thought. The site was roughly 150 yards by 150 yards. There was a massive bar in the middle of the site with two long buffet lines stacked with seafood and other goodies on the North and South sides. The stage was on the east side facing the ocean.
I was to have an hour and a half set before the band played and then another hour after. My original plan for music was to play mostly beach acoustic music like Jack Johnson and some reggae. Once I set up and felt the vibe, I changed directions and decided to go with Yacht Rock. Yacht Rock is 70’s and 80’s soft rock from bands like Hall and Oates, Orleans, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald and many others. As the event filled in, I quickly realized I had made the right change. The group’s age was between 40-60 and mostly men. The soundtrack I laid out had many singing along and playing name that tune.
Genzyme, a Bio-Tech company from Canada, reached out to one of my clients to organize some entertainment for an after party at Parq Nightclub. The representative from Genzyme was very concerned about ending up with a crappy corporate event DJ. My client assured them that they had one of the best corporate event DJ options available in town, me!
The night started with an awards presentation. I have done many of these types of awards presentations where I play walk up music and filler songs. Dinner started after the awards where I played Frank Sinatra, Elle Fitzgerald and some Sam Cooke. Once they were ready to party, I opened up the dance floor with Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough.” The night continued with high energy dance music until last call. Both my clients were very pleased and high fives were passed out on the way out.
