We know our audience! Knowing what music to play (and for whom) is the stuff of expeirence and communication.
Experience lets us navigate that fine line in what can take place when performing at school functions, Sweet 16, Mitzvahs and other special events. It is extremely important that your DJ be very knowledgeable in music that will be played and requested. The DJ must be able to balance what is popular, what the kids want to hear, the music selections, the requests with what their parents and school would want them to listen to.
