We are now living in the Age of Technology. Machines are replacing human beings in all areas of life and the entertainment industry is no different. A question we often hear from our friends and clients here at Vol10 Entertainment is the following:
“Can’t I just plug in my Ipod instead of hiring a DJ?”
Our answer is always the same. Sure you can, but it wouldn’t be practical. A large library of personal favorites and carefully selected songs on shuffle mode sounds tempting to the party planner on a budget. It may even sound like a good idea until you actually put it into action. You have to factor the cost of renting a commercial sound system, microphones, lights, buying liability insurance for the venue as well as the added burden of picking up, setting up, taking down and returning the equipment.
To compare a party DJ to an Ipod would be equivalent to comparing a live band to a CD. Here at Vol10Ent, your party and wedding specialists, our DJ can read your guests, navigate genres and tempos to cater to their particular tastes, determine the length of songs, take requests and blend them in effortlessly to make sure your guests experience a smooth musical journey. A party DJ can also troubleshoot any issues technology may present.
There are three strikes to every party: the food, the venue and the music. If one isn’t up to par, the word will spread like wildfire. Bad news travels fast. Why invest in a beautiful venue and great food, only to entertain your guests with a music player?
To make sure you give your event the best possible chance at being a memorable night, let Vol10 Entertainment take care of your DJ needs. This is one instance where man will definitely defeat machine.
Technology… the knack of so arranging the world that we don’t have to experience it.
The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.
