DJ Peter has become one of the leading Durban Wedding and KZN Wedding DJ's over the past 20 years. Having over 500 weddings that he has been the Wedding DJ at, he has streamlined the process for the evening right down to a fine art.
It is very important to get an experienced KZN wedding DJ to oversee your wedding. With so many weddings in KZN that been done by DJ Peter, he has seen it all. Where the pitfalls are and how to help solve any problems in an instant, even if it is not part of his service he is offering. As an example, the venue at one wedding forgot to purchase the Champaigne as they thought the Bride and Groom were bringing it. So early on a Saturday evening when NO Bottle Stores in KZN were open, DJ Peter phoned three of his industry contacts to purchase champainge and sent a friend to go and collect it at the three clubs and deliver to their wedding.
DJ Peter has a wide range of music going back to the 40's and right to the very latest. We have found that in most cases, new remixes of old songs work very well as the older people can relate to the songs with the latest beats. There are however a good few of the older songles that should never be remixed.
We listen to the Bride and Groom on their choice of music and their DO NOT PLAY list. Within the first 30 minutes of the dancefloor opening we are able to determine what sort of crowd we have and play a majority of the music that keeps the dancefloor full.
We are strong believers in a flowing evening and prefer not to stop dancing more than once for the formalities. You can stop once just after the formal songs for the Cutting of the cake , garter toss, Boquet throw all in one hit. Try also to serve the dessert before the dancing starts and if you have a photobooth then this should also stop being operational shortly thereafter.
What you do not want to do is to spread your guests between Dancing, Photobooth and dessert at the beginning of the dancing session. We tend to try and give our guests the best popular songs right at the beginning to get the dancefloor packed with everybody having fun together. Then once this is in place it is easier to keep them on the floor and to test out different genre to see what they like.
Having too many breaks in the dancing also gives the wedding guests an excuse to sit down and possible go home. If they are having fun on the floor then this would not even enter their thoughts.As a Wedding DJ, our aim is to keep as many people on the dancefloor for as long as possible. Some of the KZN weddings are quite a distance from the homes of the guests and if a majority or your guests are going home afterwards, it is a good idea to plan the wedding to start earlier so that people do not drive home late at night.
We can also provide you with a list of great KZN Wedding venues that we have worked at and recommend depending on your wedding budget.
We welcome requests for anyone provided that the Bride and Groom are happy that their guests request songs.
