A bit of a cheat would be to find out what speakers they are using and do a little research on them. Check the reviews and the quality of sound quality they produce. Imagine your disappointment if the DJ pumps up the volume on a cheap set of speakers and it sounds distorted and have been over driven. It hurts and your guests could disperse to get away from the low quality sound being forced upon them. Not to mention bad sound can destroy the atmosphere of the night.

Is the DJ Your Kind of Person?
