Why should prospective clients book a NADJ member?
Booking a reliable Disc Jockey is a very important decision for the success of your party. Selecting a Disc Jockey who is an active member of the National Association of Disc Jockeys will provide you with the confidence that you have selected a trained professional. NADJ members are more likely to be involved with other Disc Jockey's who can help them out with an unexpected situation.
All NADJ members are required to have all of their equipment regularly inspected and tested in accordance with current health and safety legislation. Proof of Portable Appliance Testing, [PAT] certification is a requirement of membership, as is the provision of Public Liability Insurance. [PLI]
A full-service disc jockey company will normally invest 12 to 30 hours in your special event but it may appear that you are only paying for "4 hours performance time". Consultations, music purchasing & editing, preparation, set-up and tear-down, education and other business related endeavors add up to the overall success of your special occasion. Although equipment failure is rare, do you really want your special occasion ruined because your Disc Jockey did not come prepared?
It is also important to know if your Disc Jockey has a back-up plan in case of illness or an accident. Members of the NADJ have many resources available to them in case of an emergency. You may also reach our Hotline number to get a Disc Jockey when you have an emergency.
The Low Call number is 0845 430 3044
In a nutshell, engaging the services of a NADJ member will provide peace of mind for the client.
You can rest assured that they will provide a competent, professional and reliable service which will contribute to the success of your event or party.
Derek Pengelly, Chairman NADJ.
