They were a fun couple who like to have fun and dance! That night, I played a mixture of funk, disco, Top 40, 80s and 90s! We even did the Hora and had their friend sing a bit of karaoke. Overall, the vibe was perfect and they all had a great time.

Thanks for having me as your DJ, Ron & Drorit!

How to Choose a First Dance Song | Wedding Tips & Advice

 Photo by  Alvin Mahmudov

The First Dance is an intimate part of the evening when you get the opportunity to dance with your new wife or husband in front of your all of your guests. Everyone gets to see the chemistry and interaction that you have with each other, as well as your dance moves. This part of the night can be stressful for some couples as they may not be good dancers, may not know which song to choose, or may not like the center of attention. It doesn't have to be this way. You're about to read some tips to help make your First Dance more pleasant, memorable, and smooth for both you and your partner.

 Photo by  Alexandra Gorn

How do I choose my First Dance song?

If you only have one song to choose to dance in front of your wedding guests, what would it be? You have several factors to consider when choosing a song such as its genre, tempo, length, type of dance, mood, and mutual likeness from both parties. If you were to start narrowing down some songs, start with songs that the both of you enjoy. It would be even better if the song had an emotional connection that brought you closer together in the relationship. Make the song meaningful!

Once you narrow down some songs that you both like, you can narrow it down even further by agreeing on the kind of dance and vibe you want. Do you want something light-hearted and fun? Do you want it more romantic and slow? Is it something that both of you can dance to? 

Once you have a good small list of songs that may work for you, pick and agree with one together! :)

What if you want your First Dance song to be different and stand out?
I can see the music lovers asking this question. You can look up cover songs of your favorites on YouTube and Spotify! You get to discover such amazing talent out there and surprise your guests with something familiar and unique!

Below are two Spotify playlists to help you with your song selections:

Top Requested First Dances

My Personal Favorites

I'm not a great dancer, what should I do?

You don't need to be a great dancer for your First Dance, but it would help if you know some basic moves to make it look like you know what you're doing! Remember, you're most likely going to be on video to be remembered for ages to come. Do you want to look like you know what you're doing? If yes, please take the time to learn! There are many resources out there to start doing so. You can even take some dance classes with your fiancé so both of you can benefit together.

Here are some online dance lessons you can start learning today!

We want our First Dance to be choreographed, do you recommend anyone to help us with this?

Yes, I do! Please contact Crystal Shum from Exceptionally Yours. Not only is she a wedding planner/coordinator, she's also a dance instructor and choreographer! Definitely reach out to her to discuss your vision.

If your choreographed First Dance is a combination of songs, ask your DJ to help you mix it all together in one continuous track! This is a service that I also provide, so if you need help with making one, let me know!

We don't like to be the center of attention, what can we do about it?

Ask your DJ to shorten the song for you! That way you won't be on the dance floor for too long. If you decide to go this route, ask your DJ if he/she can make a custom edit of the song to end it when you want. This will give you time to practice your dance moves at home, and if you time it right, you can end the dance with some flair! 

As for when to shorten the song, usually, it's best to end the song at the end of either the 1st or 2nd chorus of the song, before it hits the bridge. Consult with your DJ to find a good time to end the song!

If you want another creative way to go about this, please continue reading below!

Bonus! Even More Tips & Advice!

1. Ask the DJ if he/she provides a spotlight to highlight both of you on the dance floor!
2. Midway through your First Dance song, you can invite all the couples to join you and finish the song! That way, you won't feel like you're the center of attention!
3. After you invited everyone to dance with you, you can have your DJ play another slow dance song which you can segue to the Anniversary Dance. Don't know what it is? Ask me in the comments section below ;-)
4. You can even choose a First Dance song that encourages crowd participation whether it's clapping or singing along!
5. Depending on your style and enough time in the schedule, you can also kick things off with a short dance party right after your First Dance

These are just some of my thoughts when it comes to First Dances. Thanks for reading this! I hope this article has been helpful! If you need any more help or have any thoughts that you would like to share, I'd love to hear them in the comment section below. Cheers and have a great day!

ABOUT DJ MOJOE

DJ MOJOE loves the wedding industry and DJed his first wedding in 2011. While attending college, Joe DJed part-time and is completely self-taught. Along with his DJ experience, Joe has worked with a staffing company at various venues as well as doing catering. This has allowed hime to view weddings from both an entertainment and a catering perspective, understanding the various elements that contribute to the success of a wedding.

On the music side, Joe has performed at a variety of events and many different environments, from birthdays to bar mitzvahs, grand openings, and fashion shows; you name it, Joe has done it all. He has also expanded his services to DJ destination weddings, of which his first was located in Maui, Hawaii. This flexibility as a DJ really contributes to his success at weddings now because he is able to bridge the gap between the music, performance, and the customer service.

A glimpse at the behind-the-scenes preparation of a wedding DJ.

There is a lot more to being a DJ than just showing up and making music, especially in the wedding industry. There are many details to iron out behind-the-scenes when prepping for the wedding day. You have to get the correct names, a complete song list, as well as checking your software and equipment to make sure that everything is working properly and is reliable. There is nothing worse than having a mishap on the big day. You only have one shot, so you have to make it work.

The top question a bride and groom asks their wedding DJ.

One of the biggest concerns that couples have when it comes to the music for the wedding is that they do not want the “cheesy” wedding stuff. So their first question is often regarding the style of music the DJ plays. Joe is an open-format DJ who plays various styles, with a focus on specifically catering to the couple. He adapts his music to the style of music requested by the bride and groom, whether it is club hits or even throwbacks to a specific era.

Important criteria for couples to look for when hiring a wedding DJ.

The first question a bride and groom should ask their DJ is, “Are you insured?” Not a lot of DJs carry insurance and many venues will ask for it. This is to ensure that the DJ is covered in case of any accidents or emergencies. Having insurance also allows DJs to play at more venues, which is a critical piece of the puzzle.

The second criteria for couples to consider is to check if the DJ has been active recently. Some DJs may state that they have been DJing for many years, but how active are they right now in the wedding industry? It is important that your DJ is up to date with the current music and that they are on top of their game.

Understanding the importance of uniformity, having a DJ who can also take on the role of MC.

It is crucial to find a DJ that can do both the role of a DJ and an MC. This is very important because that person will know his or her style in terms of playing music and making announcements. This is also a cost-effective way to cover both roles within the wedding. It gives a uniformity, as one person is in charge of the reception events for the whole evening.

By having the DJ as your MC, your wedding will be more cohesive on the entertainment front, which will make it flow a lot smoother. This also eliminates missed communication between the two areas, and the transitions between music and announcements will be effortless without missing a cue. If you are not able to find a DJ who is also an MC, the next best option is to find two people who work together for the same company. This way the individuals know each other’s personalities, styles, and cues, creating an effective team.

The top reasons why DJ MOJOE loves being in the wedding industry.

LogoWhiteRec.png

For Joe, one of the reasons he loves being a wedding DJ is because he gets to witness people from all over the country and world come together in a room to celebrate the union of a couple and just to have a great time. As a DJ and MC you really get a chance to be a part of such a rewarding experience. Another aspect is creating a relationship with the bride and groom. During the process leading up to the wedding, you get to spend time getting to know the couple and hear all about their love story. Creating that moment for them on their special day, tying it all together with the music, is an incredibly fulfilling experience.

What are the challenges of being a wedding DJ in the industry today?

One of the things that Joe would love to see improved is the level of communication. Performing at a wedding requires teamwork and working alongside many vendors on that day. It is critical that everyone is on the same page going in. So in terms of communication, a lot of problems can be avoided the day of the wedding by addressing any concerns or problems beforehand. Whether it is through email or a phone call, communicating with each vendor would be helpful in determining what they need from you, or what the most important aspects of the day is to them.

This helps to avoid any conflicts in time and eliminates any unnecessary surprises on the day of the wedding. These vendors are in your industry and it is part of your job to build strong relationships with them to create an incredible team environment in order to make the bride and groom’s day come true.

Myths, misconceptions, and false assumptions about wedding DJs; what couples need to know.

Often times couples have the misconception and belief that DJs just like to play their own music. However, as a wedding DJ it is your job to actually play the music that the bride and groom want, while at the same time being able to use your knowledge and expertise to play what the crowd wants as well.

So it is not just about the DJ; it is about you, the couple. Nothing is wrong with the couple asking this question, but it is important for the DJ to provide clarification and set their minds at ease by addressing their concerns. Couples need to know that there are DJs out there who actually care about the music that you want for your wedding, and that is something all DJs should provide.

3 tips for couples when planning their wedding and finding the perfect wedding DJ.

The first tip for brides and grooms when planning their wedding is to choose vendors who have worked together in previous weddings. “Teamwork makes the dreamwork”. If you hire vendors who have worked together you know that they have a connection. They will have fun and they know how to navigate any challenges of working together. That energy will permeate into your wedding to make for an incredible time.

The second tip is to learn as much as you can about your DJ; ask, ask, ask. The entertainment aspect of a wedding is huge in terms of making your wedding day be smooth, successful, and fun. Ask your DJ for pictures, videos, reviews, and even ask for vendor referrals.

Tip number three is to find a DJ who is genuine and also cares about your wedding. Do not just settle for the DJ that rushes everything to show up, play music, and leave. A DJ who cares is the one who will put the most effort into your wedding, who will go the extra mile just find the perfect song for you on your wedding.

More about DJ MOJOE; saving the city, one party at a time.

Joe got his DJ name because he wanted his personality to be in the name. He loves puns and wanted to find a way to put his real name into his DJ name, hence MOJOE. Joe runs his business under the slogan “saving the city one party at a time” because when he first started DJing he received emails and phone calls from family and friends about how their DJ was not responding and how they were stuck with an event and no DJ.

They would call Joe the night before, with news that the original DJ canceled. Joe always stepped up to fill in the position. The DJ’s lack of professionalism really upset Joe, and he knew he had to make sure that no clients ever have to go through that stress again. He truly believes that this motivated him to save the party when no one else could do it.

Joe is an incredible guy and he has a huge willingness to help others. Everything from his demeanor, his personality, and his love for reaching out and connecting with others is to make sure that he not only serves his brides and grooms, but also the other vendors on the wedding day. DJ MOJOE’s always prioritizes his interest to get to know his couples early on, to ensure that the type of music he plays ties into their personality.

Finally, just his mindfulness of everything. Of course it is the bride and groom’s day, but it is important that all the guests have a great time, so he goes the extra mile to tailor the music to everyone’s taste. He is truly a DJ who cares about everyone involved in making wedding day dreams come to life.

Where do I get my music?

In this video, I answered a question someone asked me via Snapchat "Where do I get my music?"

1. I primarily get my music from DJ pools online. 
Why? They keep me constantly updated with the newest, hottest and latest tracks. They have clean & dirty edits with 8-bar intros. They have club-friendly remixes and re-drums to add energy in a track. They have acapellas and loops for production. They have transition edits to help change BPM. 
How much? Ranges between $20-$40/month and depends on the DJ Pool. Some even offer a yearly rate which can help you save money in the long run. If you're new to a DJ pool, I recommend trying the first couple of months to see how you like it.

2. Amazon music. Why? Great selection of songs and comes in .mp3 file formats. If I don't find the song I want in any of the DJ Pools, I go to Amazon to purchase it. This situation happens commonly when a client asks for a specific song that I don't have, especially for their weddings.

Well this is how I get my music. How do you get yours? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

What music do I play at a wedding?

In this video, I answer a question from a fellow DJ who asked "How do I come up with my playlist for a wedding?". In other words, "What music do I play at a wedding?"

I answered this in 2 ways:
1. Simply ask the couple. This will help you get an idea of their music styles and tastes and what song they would like for each specific part of the wedding. To be even more unique, you can even ask where they are from originally and then surprise them with some songs from their home city/state/country. This creates a great crowd reaction.
2. Read your crowd. It's your job as a DJ to read the crowd and adjust your music selection accordingly. As much as one would like to just play songs from their specific playlist, the energy in the room can change and may require you to play music outside of your playlist to adjust to the crowd's energy.

Hotel Angeleno Party!

On July 14, 2016, I DJed the launch of the new Hotel Angeleno! They just finished their multimillion dollar renovation around the hotel and they invited all of their valued partners and clients to share in the celebration! They also became a new member of Genre Hotels and received an exclusive partnership with Uber! 

That night, I DJed on the top floor of the hotel providing fun music for all the guests. The guests enjoyed themselves so much, that the hotel extended my contract with them for another entertaining hour! The night was a success and happy for the growing success of Hotel Angeleno.

In the quick video below, you'll see some of the behind-the-scenes footage taken from my Snapchat, djmojoe. Add me on Snapchat for more BTS footage for future events and parties! 

How I saved over $1000 by switching to Squarespace!

How I saved over $1000 by switching to Squarespace!

MY STORY

Finding the right company to host your website isn't an easy task. You have to think about ease of use, design, management & cost. I believe that having a well designed and managed website is central to help you stand out in the digital arena. So over the past 5 years, I've been investing my time, money and efforts to find & create my ideal website.

My website has gone through 5 re-designs with 4 different web hosts. Out of the 5 re-designs, I put my labor and sweat into 4 of them. As time went by, I noticed that technology and the internet were blooming as "new features" and "trends" appear that make websites better. It makes sense because technology is continually evolving to make it easier for the end consumer. At every stage of my website, I was happy with how it looked, but as time went on, I knew how important it was to be up-to date and keep up with leading trends in technology & design.

MY PROBLEM

Before my current Squarespace site, my website was designed and hosted by a third-company (I won't name) back in August 2015 and I loved it! However, it came at a hefty price of roughly $128 per month! I justified my costs when I saw the analytics, that my bounce rate went down from an average of 80% to about 30%. Numbers don't lie. I've also received compliments from many clients that they loved my website! For a good 10 months, I was proud of my website and was content with it. It wasn't until my good friends, Tiana and Paul from www.exoticgreengarden.com, shared with me their website hosted by Squarespace. Besides the great design and the user-friendly engine, I was blown away to hear the costs to run it -- $12 per month! 

THE SWITCH & THE SOLUTION

I did the math. I could either continue to spend $1536 a year at my previous host OR $144 a year by switching to Squarespace. I chose Squarespace. Not only were the costs right, but Squarespace fits all the criteria I was looking for. It's super user-friendly, easy to manage, affordable, and beautifully designed to fit my style and tastes. After I switched, it took me about 1 week to design my current Squarespace website and now it looks even better and amazing thanbefore!

CONCLUSION

I saved over $1000 by switching to Squarespace! $1392 to be exact :) all while still having a beautifully designed, and if not, better website.

Anyways, I hope this article has given you some thoughts about Squarespace and what it can do for you. Thanks for your time reading this! If you have any thoughts or questions, please feel free to leave them in the comment section below. If not, let's stay connected on social media!

Best, Joe

PS. Special thanks to Tiana & Paul!
