For many, their choice of the best Wedding DJ will make a dramatic difference to the success of their event – in a lot of cases possibly one of the most important (and expensive) days of their lives. For others, where the music is just incidental and being provided to entertain a minority, a basic service is often all they need.

The biggest deciding factor in ensuring the quality of the DJ service that you hire is usually the BUDGET. We urge you to consider this very carefully as an overall percentage of the cost of your event. Don’t shop around for a DJ purely on price, because many excellent well-priced DJs will actively avoid clients who appear to not value the service and focus only on cost. Instead, shop around on the suitability, reputation and level of service being offered – then once you have a shortlist of suitable DJs you can then review the pricing.

Explosive Entertainment and our parent site have done much of the legwork for you on the Gold Coast and Brisbane. Fill in our simple inquiry form and we’ll arrange for one of our professional DJs who cover your venue to submit a quotation FREE of charge to you and without any obligation to book.


Be very clear about your expectations for the event and TALK to your DJ about them. Don’t be afraid to walk away if you’re not confident in his/her abilities to deliver. ASK for feedback or references, and follow them up. It’s very easy to forge internet references – ask for originals. Explosive Entertainment won the ABIA Wedding DJ of the year in 2013 so we have many happy brides to back us up. The awards are judged by brides.

Do you want a straightforward same-as-everyone-else mobile DJ, or are you looking for something a little more unusual or unique?

Insist on a face-to-face meeting if you prefer.

Do you need equipment to be set up earlier in the day and will your DJ do this?

Are you looking for neat, discreet equipment or will you be happy with masses of untidy boxes and cables in your function room?

Are you looking for a party DJ who can rapidly switch genres to suit the guests? Or would you prefer a club-style DJ with excellent beatmixing skills?

Would you be happy with a silent DJ or would you prefer someone with microphone skills and the right presence to confidently make important announcements and keep your guests informed?

Is you DJ knowledgeable in all the musical genres you are likely to need to satisfy your guests? Does he/she have access to a wide enough catalog, and more importantly, do they know how to use it? Anyone can download hundreds of thousands of tracks, but at a typical evening party, you only need about 60!

Do you want to supply a playlist (or a “no-playlist”)? Will your DJ happily accept this?

Is the DJ’s equipment specifications of interest to you? Do you care whether they have a few flashing bulbs or the latest club-style laser effects? Discuss their capabilities to avoid disappointment.

If all of this sounds like too much to think about then call Explosive Entertainment and let us handle it all for you on the Gold Coast or Brisbane.

We only hire knowledgeable and professional DJs to be part of our team.

We look forward to igniting your next event!
