As a groom said after his reception: "He's amazing at what he does. The best." DJ HD, the featured disc jockey, grew up with a passion for music and turned that love into a profession. He has an ear for what you want to hear and will play Sinatra, "The Nae Nae," hip-hop, reggae, or country. And that's just for starters. Growing up in South Florida, a melting pot of different cultures and flavors,  DJ HD was strongly influenced by what was around him, making his style diverse and high-energy. He has performed for more than a decade at some of the best wedding venues, major air lines, retailers and firms.

They will take care of you whether you have a party, corporate event, or even a Sweet 16.

We held a writing contest for students at a local Jr. High where we asked them the question, "Is music important for a party?" The following essay was written by our runner-up, ninth-grader Katelynn Copeland!

How to Select Party Music

Having the wrong kind of music can bring down the mood of the world's best party. People feel music, and good party music has the ability to not only create a particular atmosphere at the event but also have a very strong influence on the attending party guests and their general experience.

It would be silly to say, "This playlist is perfect for any party." Every party is different and party music often needs mixing properly on the night. This is why a professional party DJ or band is a good idea to manage the party entertainment. Either way, it's important to give the music choice a lot of thought and consideration.

When people are party planning, they will generally have close family and friends attending, and so it's quite possible that they know their party music preferences in advance. Nothing is better on the night of the party than to have certain party tunes that stir up the good ole memories!

Listen through old CD's or other party music collections. What's important here is that the host and the party guests will enjoy it on the night. Another trick is to send off little song request slips with the invitations. This will give an even better idea on what type of music to play at the big party.

Thank you, Katelynn. Great job!

We've all been to that reception where the music was lackluster and the DJ was way over the top, relying on "personality" to make up for an obvious lack of talent. You've also been to the event where any requests or attempts to improve the music selection were ignored. It just doesn't make sense. When the purpose of the function is excitement, dancing and fun, this type of performance is completely unacceptable.

You want a music provider that will work to include all of your guests, regardless of age or preference. You also want a DJ who ensures that the spotlight is on you, your guests and the events you have planned. In short, you want Joel Quest!

The Four F's

Joel Quest is the owner, operator and DJ for Conquest Entertainment, a Chicago based music provider. For Joel, nothing is more important than providing music everyone will enjoy while working with you to make any in-party events go off without a hitch!

You're planning a wedding, congratulations! How great is that! It's your special day and being one of the most important days of your life you want it to be perfect. You want everything to go according to plan. What helps make your day run smoothly? A main factor in that is who you hire on your wedding day. These people definitely help your day run smoothly and you want them to understand that. Of course, you think of caterers, florists and your venue. However, do you think about your musical entertainment. They must know when to play what and keep the entertainment going on all night long. So, Wedding and Party Network has a list of questions that you might consider asking your DJ.

1. Do You Have A Contract? Most often, vendors have written contracts that you share between one another. A written contract shows professionalism. There are a lot of people out there that may say they're a dj and show up with an Ipod and a set of basic speakers. So, you want someone professional. A written contract shows you what to expect, from setup to the outline of what is required from them. This gives you a great idea on what you can expect from them, while on the other hand what is expected from you in terms of payments, when to pay and what you need to do on your part.

2. Are You The DJ? Ask the person you're talking with if they will be the dj at your wedding or if it will be someone else. It's a great idea to meet with your dj so you feel a connection with them. You want to feel comfortable with them, which makes your night more enjoyable.

3. Can We Meet? You actually may want to meet with your dj. You meet with the rest of your vendors, so why not them? They are going to be in control of the entertainment for the evening. You want to click with the dj and feel confident that they understand your needs and will provide amazing entertainment all night long.

4. How Long? You may want to look around at other people or have something holding you back, so ask how long they will hold your date for you. Make sure you know this after talking with them so you can get back with the asap.

5. How Many Events Have You Done? This may or may not be important. However, it's always nice to see how many events and how much experience they do have within their profession.

6. What Makes You Stand Out From Your Competitors? This is a great question to ask to find out what they offer than their competitors. This is a great question to ask to find out why basically you should pick them and not someone else. What can they do for you?

7. Do You Make All Of The Announcements? Do you act as the emcee for the night? Do you make all of the announcements during the night or do we need to find someone else for that job? This is an important role for any major event and will definitely make your night less stressful not having to worry about making announcements.

8. What Actually Is Included In The Cost? What exactly do I get with the cost? You may just be receiving the basic, basic package. It may not include any lights or anything. So, ask.

9. How Up-To-Date Is Your Music Library, Can We Make Requests? Of course, you want to know if they have the type of music you enjoy. You don't want to hire a dj who has a lacking music library. It's definitely best to find out if they have any of the music you like and if they're willing to get it if they don't.

10. Can We Speak To Your References and Can We Visit You At One Of Your Events? You want to know that they are going to provide you with the very best. So, what better way to experience this than by attending one of their events or contacting past references.

Whenever you hire a dj, there's more to know than just knowing how much they're going to cost. You want to know that they're going to be worth every penny that you spend and provide all that you need for your wedding, birthday party, or special gala. It's important to find someone who will provide great entertainment all night long.
