JAMMIN' DJs Northern Colorado http://www.jammindjsnoco.com Thu, 17 Mar 2016 14:28:49 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Who should DJ our School Dance in Northern Colorado? http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/blog/who-should-dj-our-school-dance-in-northern-colorado/ Sat, 10 Oct 2015 00:27:49 +0000 http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/?p=904 Picking the right DJ for you school dance is important. I mean you want someone who is relevant and connects with the students, but someone who is appropriate and who will provide quality 3service as well. Just recently I spoke with students to find out what it is they look for when they are looking for a good DJ. The first item always discussed is cost. Though that is important to work out those details you should always think about what type of service you are getting and how do they cater to what you need. We work directly with the student counsel, this allows us to custom build each school dance on a school by school basis instead of a general music list for all schools. Every school is different, so how could you have the same type of entertainment for all schools. Work with a company that meet all of your expectation, not just a few.

If you are looking for a Homecoming / Prom DJ or a DJ to MC your school dance you are in the right place! JAMMIN’ DJ’s Northern Colorado is prepared to provide you with excellent service that is centered around making your event memorable. In addition to providing you with a superior show we understand that particularly with schools there is a limited budget. We believe this should not hinder the caliber of DJ you get. If you are interested in learning more about how we can serve you please do not hesitate to call Steve Smith at 720-209-3130 or email steve@myjammindjs.com.

Helpful hints about assigned seating at a wedding http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/blog/helpful-hints-about-assigned-seating-at-a-wedding/ Fri, 02 Oct 2015 03:54:01 +0000 http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/?p=895 Should I assign seating for my reception or not?

seatingThis is always a hard decision and people opinions vary greatly on this issue. Some say that this is essential to the night going well, while other feel that it is too stiff of a gesture. Here are some things to consider before making this decision.

1. Is my reception formal or somewhat informal. This will make a difference as if people are getting their own food they may like to then be seated where ever the end up. If the food is being brought to the guest then it may make more sense to assign seating.

2. It is important to consider if your guests will know each other and if they will be comfortable siting with individuals that they do not know. If you are doing a seating chart some recommend putting friends with friend and a family with family. Yet depending on your guests it would likely be nice to mix bride and grooms family and friends as this is a union between the two and everyone will be getting to know each other throughout the years.

3.How long will we spend eating and when will move into the celebration portion of the event? This is important as some of your guest will be interested in the celebration portion while others, for example elderly or those with young children may leave a little early or excuse themselves to a more quiet area of the reception. It is important to have this in mind if you chose to assign seating.

4.What special traditions or formalities will I be including in my reception. For instance, Brides who book with JAMMIN’ DJ’s NOCO are given planning forms to help them navigate, the bride and groom entrance and exit, the best man and maid of honor toasts, the first dance, mother and father dances, money dance and much more… It would be important to consider this if making seating assignments as well.

If you are a bride and are looking for a DJ service in Northern Colorado please contact JAMMIN’ DJ’s NOCO for a free consultation. We would be happy to assist you in the planning of this most memorable and exciting event!

Why picking the right wedding venue is important http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/blog/why-picking-the-right-wedding-venue-is-important/ Tue, 29 Sep 2015 03:06:52 +0000 http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/?p=890 Wedding-venueYou want your wedding day to be your own version of perfect right? After all it is a day that you and your lifelong partner will remember forever. The place you have  the wedding then is really important. Your wedding venue should represent who you are as a couple or at least be able to make the transformation for the event.

As you begin to research what venue you may like there are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Are you looking to be indoors or outdoors? If you are indoors you do not have to worry about unexpected weather, however you do have to concern yourself with the lighting and ambiance.

2. How many will be on your guest list? This is one of those very tricky questions as it seems that the more you think about it the larger the list you could have. Does your venue comfortably fit the number of people your planning to invite?

3. What is included in the venues packages? Do they provide catering or any other services? Most venues will provide certain amenities with their packages. If they do not provide them, they will often times have a preferred vendors list that will be very helpful as the list of vendors on that list will be people who are familiar with the venue and have established a working relationship.

4. Is this location easy to find and can most of my guest access it easily? Many venues are very well known, however there are some area’s that may be a little more tucked away. It is important to think about this in terms of getting guests in and out safely and efficiently.

5. What do you want you reception to  be like? For each couple this will be vary different. Some couples desire to experience a formal dinner with dancing afterward. While other couples chose to have a more casual style buffet and dancing into the night for all. If you are looking for a DJ service to provide you with all that you are look for please call JAMMIN’ DJS Northern Colorado for a free consultation at 720-209-3130. We are happy to help with any of your planning needs!

5 Tips to help you make sure your wedding entertainment is top notch! http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/blog/5-tips-to-help-you-make-sure-your-wedding-entertainment-is-top-notch/ Mon, 28 Sep 2015 04:38:04 +0000 http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/?p=888 OK, its only a year away, how far in advance should the planning have started?


We’ve all asked ourselves this question! The answer is simple, you should have been planning already! When you start your planning for the wedding there is a process of finding a venue, finding a catering company, finding the right dress & tux, deciding who will be the 10bridesmaids and groomsmen, who’s going to be the best man, who is going to be the DJ, and the list goes on and on….

Do you really want to be figuring out all of the necessary things you need to plan for in the last year before your event? We all know that figuring everything out at the last minutes only creates more stress. Here are a few things you can do to ease the pain of your planning.

1. Recruit help from friends and family. You might think you can make all of the right decisions, but it never hurts to have another opinion and and outside opinion most importantly,”they are usually more honest”.

2. When your looking for a venue to have your wedding, you can look on some very well know wedding service sites like Wedding Wire or The Knot. They are reputable and often you can also read reviews about venues or services you are going to need for your event.

3. Don’t be afraid to ask vendors that you are already working with. Word of mouth is usually a good sign that someone is doing something right, that they would use their word to refer another vendor. Not saying that’s always the right choice, you have to use your own judgement and research.

4. Make sure to READ THEIR REVIEWS!! Everyone is the best in the world, make sure that their previous clients have said the same thing before you take their word for it.

5. Make sure you can get a face to face or a very informative phone call. Anyone who is scared to meet you has something to hide. Don’t be scared to ask them what accreditation’s they have received. A company doing things right should have some awards under their belt. Unless you are looking for a sub par wedding, don’t get sub par service.


Ultimately, we know everything has a budget. Find a wedding vendor you like and talk to them about your budget. Most of the time, a reputable company will work with a reasonable budget.

What to do when a DJ Cancels? http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/blog/what-to-do-when-a-dj-cancels/ Thu, 04 Jun 2015 06:26:51 +0000 http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/?p=848 mad-brideThat dreaded feeling when you have spent months and months of preparations on finding the right DJ entertainment for your wedding. You searched to find a discount for a cheap DJ for your wedding and now they have done the unthinkable…Cancelled! Oh no now what??

Sadly unless you have a signed contract with that DJ there isn’t much you can do in the case a DJ cancels at the last minute. I know that’s not what you want to hear, but it is the reality of the service industry. Sometimes looking for the cheapest DJ for you wedding means that you are risking trouble. Maybe it will happen and maybe it wont, but the question you have to ask yourself is: “Am I willing to risk it?” Its one of the most single important days of your life, of course your not willing to let anything bad happen!

Find a DJ service that is reputable and affordable. There are several variations in DJ companies that can impact the charges they have for services. Get the specifics before you sign the contract!

How To Know Your Booking The Right Wedding DJ http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/blog/how-to-know-your-booking-the-right-wedding-dj/ Thu, 05 Mar 2015 08:00:54 +0000 http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/?p=617 This may be the single most frequently asked question when I am interviewing a bride for her upcoming wedding! The bride and Groom always ask, why should I book you over someone else?

This for me is an easy question. Why should I buy a new car instead of an older one off craigslist? Because its cheaper? Cheaper as we all know is not always the best choice. My dad used to tell me that “You get what you pay for!” If you want a discount DJ that is exactly what you will get. Yes some wedding DJs charge more than others, but the reason is usually simple, at least I know it is for JAMMIN’ DJs Northern Colorado! If you want to provide a quality service there are a few things that you cant pay short on. Using the best equipment available means that you are constantly upgrading your equipment, maintaining your equipment and replacing bad equipment. All of those things cost money, especially if the rule is you never go backwards. You have to pay your entertainers well. If you are low balling your wedding DJs they will low ball your entertainment. I don’t know anyone who wants a DJ at their wedding who doesn’t really care if they are there or not.

JAMMIN’ DJs Northern Colorado is part of JAMMIN’ DJs Denver and we are the largest DJ service in Colorado. Our DJs go through a vigorous process when it comes to training and hosting events. We take pride in providing a top notch service, cause let’s face it, anything less is just unacceptable!

How to Save Hours of Time With Your Wedding DJ http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/blog/how-to-save-hours-of-time-with-your-wedding-dj/ Sun, 25 Jan 2015 06:32:53 +0000 http://www.jammindjsnoco.com/?p=595 First of all congratulations on your wedding! In getting prepared for your wedding there are some factors that most brides, grooms and parents don’t think to ask. You could be booking the wrong DJ or spending too much money for a DJ for time that you don’t need.

When you are looking for a potential wedding DJ candidate, you need to know the right questions to ask to make sure you get what your paying for… Make sure to ask if they charge to set up noco-bg-hero-2and tear down there equipment before and after the event has finished. Some DJ companies will have a setup and tear down fee associated with booking their service. Make sure that you ask how many hours of play time does the quote include, meaning how much time beyond setting up and tearing down. Most professional DJ services will not charge you for setting up and tearing their equipment down after the show, so do make sure you shop around to a few companies before locking into 1.

That doesn’t mean that one company is cheaper , so I will just book that DJ since its not that important. Is it important? Ask yourself if you would like your guests to have an awesome time or an “it was ok” time. I guarantee you they will all say awesome, so don’t go the cheap route, or most likely you will get the cheap service. Read your DJs reviews, make sure they are accredited and get lots of reviews from their clients. The best impression will be a company that stands behind its clients and provides you with plenty of review and accreditation’s to support their service.
