The Importance of “Reading the Dance Floor”

IMG_5268The ability & skill of playing the right song at the right moment comes through years of experience and knowledge of music. Reading the crowd is important to determine if a song will work, how long a particular set of music should last and what kind of a musical set should be played next. It is vital not to just play right through a preset order of music just to get through the list. Being knowledgeable of all eras and types of music, including specific songs, gives the DJ great advantage when painting the big picture on the floor with great dance music. While it is mandatory to be prepared, the DJ must still play out the fun on event day.
