I have read reviews for DJs on this Board and another sites... and while they are extremely helpful, I just don't know if they are as helpful for me.
It seems as though most brides (and grooms) measure a DJ's success by the %-age of guests on the dance floor. And that's understandable, because when you pay for a DJ instead of making a mixtape, you kind of hope people take advantage of it and enjoy it.
Well, I do want to dance. Enough to warrant a DJ. But looking over our guest look...we have a lot of Non-dancers. My side of the WP and my mom's friends, and maybe some strange, will want to dance. The rest of the guest list is composed of "No ways" and reticent maybe dancers. It's important to us not to have a dance party per se (the 'flow' and playlist will have to be well planned, but really flexible, me thinks).
Anyway...we do want some dance music....so totally 90s alternative rock college radio station vibe with some 2000's indie music will only carry us so far.
Does anybody have an indie* friendly DJ recommendation? One that would enjoy some variation and a few small challenges (mixing some songs) without feeling put out or charging a lot extra? And one that would seek out 'must plays' that are likely not on the average wedding DJs playlist?
* I wouldn't call myself 'indie' but I feel like it's the best label. We just know what just want to play a little something for everyone...ourselves included...and don't want to dance from dinner until clean up
