Finding local disc jockeys can be a pain especially if the event that is being planned consists of a group of individuals that all have different tastes, this could be a problem. If a person is planning an event such as a birthday party it is important to get a general idea of what the group as a whole would like and what style of music is preferable. There would be a very strange feeling in the air if an event was planned and people were standing around listening to music that they didnít like or couldnít relate to. It is important to figure out what type of style and genre a local disc jockey plays. Picking from a group of local disc jockeys for a planned event can be time consuming. The amount of choices and selections that are available are endless. Making a selection for the right local disc jockey can be done by determining or narrowing down the music selection that should be played. Selections can be made in a number of categories. Jazz, hip hop, rock, alternative, country, blues, bluegrass, folk, gospel, and the list can go on and on. Picking the right music selection to set the mood and bring out the essence of the planned event will be an important factor in determining which local disc jockey will be selected to get the job. A planner would not want to schedule a disc jockey that primarily plays country music to do an event for hip hop. Likewise a disc jockey that only plays records consisting of rock bands should not be hired to play at a gospel event. In some cases the genres of music can be interchanged, this depends on the type of event that is being held.
