4th Street Sound - Live Sound/Professional DJ Services
Scott and his wife were amazing and had us on the dance floor most of the night. We had to make some last minute changes and they were great to move things around. During the ceremony our Recessional song was too long and we didn't even have to say anything to him about fading the song out and they did. Our wedding was perfect!Sep 29, 2015Verified

Q & A
- What types of customers have you worked with?Our work load is pretty much even divided between 3 types of jobs: live sound for bands; wedding DJ work, providing sound system for weddings w/o providing actual DJ services (clients use iPods, laptops, etc)
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Don't be afraid to ask a lot of questions before hiring someone and be prepared to answer a lot of questions. A good provider is going to want to know a lot about your event and what you need to make it a success. We especially want to know the size and layout of the room and a lot of particulars about set-up times and access. These items are important for correctly sizing the sound system we need. Try to think of everything you might need. People often hire us for weddings and forget to tell us they need a microphone for the wedding officiant, or a sound system for the wedding ceremony itself. With the wrong provider that could ruin the event.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Live sound - Having big stacks of speakers and high watt amps means nothing. Speaker efficiency and frequency response are the only things a true professional looks at when purchasing equipment. While we often advertise the wattage and such because that's what clients think is important, in the real world it is meaningless. There is no audible difference between an amp that puts out 500 watts and one that puts out 1000. DJ work - There are really two types of DJs: Club DJs and Wedding Djs. They require two completely different skill sets and are not interchangeable. If you want non-stop dance music with little crowd interaction hire a club DJ. If you want someone who can read a crowd, change up the music to suit and has good skills behind the microphone as an MC, hire a wedding DJ. I consider myself a wedding DJ.
