It is very rare that our Melbourne Djs are booked for double jobs for the day. But this time of year Melbourne Dj Hire get a lot of double bookings. Our Melbourne Djs and photobooths are often booked for a Christmas party in the afternoon and then we also send them to a booking the same night. It is important for us that, even though we are booking two events for that day, we also leave enough time for us to get to the next job. When we take on an afternoon booking we tell the client exactly what time we need to leave the event. That means, there is no option to extend for another hour, no extra last songs.
It is especially important this time of the year that you book a reputable company for this reason. It is the busiest time of the year for entertainment companies and they capitalise on it by taking on as many bookings as they can. But clients need to make sure that they confirm the start and finish times and make sure that the entertainers know what time they need to get to the venue. When there are double bookings, Melbourne Dj Hire make sure that our staff know exactly when to be at their venues and allocate enough time for staff to get to their next gig.
Melbourne Dj Hire have sent a Melbourne Dj and photobooth job to a popular venue in the city. That venue took on an afternoon booking where the finish time was 1 hour before the time the evening event was about to start. All of our staff arrived at the venue and were not allowed to set up because the venue staff were trying to usher guests out of the premises. It was safe to say that the client was not happy and our staff didn’t have enough time to set up our equipment.
So if you are booking events this time of year, it is important to confirm times with all your contractors and also confirm times with your venue.
