Thank you so much, Rose!
A good DJ will be a great public speaker. The DJ is actually representing your family – and they should be delivering great messages about your family along with great music. This will be a benefit to your special event if your DJ Emcee is well-versed and can speak well in public. That’s how you know your event will turn into a memorable time for all participants.
It’s no surprise that we are currently living in an attention-deficit culture. Any event or community gathering of people is clearly challenged with people’s attention to their cell phones and not the current happenings around them. A good DeeJay will work with these things and still make it a good event. Activities must be well-planned to bring utilize tons of engagement and interaction, while encouraging participation.
A DJ who is skilled at public speaking will:

Everyone wants their special event or party to be exciting! We all want our guests to have a great time and remember those special moments. However, many parties can start to get crazy, especially with the junior high age.
Yeah, right! I’ve done so many events with this age group, and know from experience that these groups can be just on the edge of exploding! If an entertainer or DJ does not know what to do with this age, this might mean TROUBLE! Anything could happen with a young crowd with a lot of energy.
From my many years of experience, it’s all about HOW you control the energy of a special event with young people. I’ve entertained as a DJ / Emcee / Master of Ceremonies at thousands (not hundreds) of events such as dances, simchas, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, weddings and many other fabulous celebrations. Events have evolved, and today’s kids are expecting much more interactivity and a more highly-intense experience so that they can bring home many wild memories and tell their friends.
Today’s kids require more intensive experience than the old days. They need a much more emotionally-charged event to keep them happy and engaged. What does that mean for the DJ / Emcee? The DJ must know how to bring about such experiences full of energy and intensity, but that things don’t get out of control. A controlled crowd is a good crowd.
Well, no single event will be able to have activities going on each minute at high speed. The DJ / Emcee must bring activity after activity, but will also bring an ebb-and-flow to the event that allows for wild times as well as toning it down during slower moments. There are more extreme moments with high sensory action of lights, sound and dance, and other more special and slower moments for celebrating with the person of honor, all creating lots of memories.
What does this all look like? It’s a good professional use of breaks, moving the crowd from activity session to break and back to activity session and continual engagement. The tempo of the event includes the music tempo as well as how. It all builds up to a bold finale!
If the kids are happy, then the parents will be happy.
