Last year, our street had a block party. We all decided this was something we wanted to do once a year. Last year we hired a DJ for the party and were planning on hiring the same one this year. However, there were some things that happened since last year and this DJ decided he wasn’t going to DJ our party again. He didn’t decide this up until a few weeks ago and the party is a little over a month away. Now we have to find another DJ for our party. I have been trying to find a DJ near me to play at this party.
I have called a few different DJs who are booked up for this day and time. I have had no luck finding a DJ that is available for this party yet. I have asked a few of my friends if they know of any DJs and they gave me the numbers of a few. I am waiting on phone calls from DJs right now to find out if they can play at our party.
If I don’t hear anything within a day or two, I am going to ask on Facebook to see if I can find one that way. I never really thought about doing this before until a friend of mine mentioned it to me. I haven’t ever asked on Facebook to get recommendations for any type of business. Hopefully this works for me. My friend also mentioned asking in local Facebook groups. She said this is another way to find out about DJs in the area.
I really wish the DJ from last year didn’t give us such short notice on not being able to play at our party. He did a really great job last year and we really looked forward to having him again this year. Too bad he bailed because of drama with a few of the other neighbors here.
I am hoping I hear something from one of these DJs soon so we can get everything else going for this party. This is one of the things we need to get in order first and then we can get the rest of the party ready. I can’t wait to have this party and get it over with, it has been stressful planning when people cancel at the last minute.
