Hiring a DJ for a Mixed-Cultural Wedding Reception
It is commonplace in today’s world for couples to belong to different cultures. Naturally, both cultures should be incorporated into the wedding ceremony and the reception so as to make all the guests feel, not just welcomed, but included in the festivity.
However, I have frequently listened to clients over the years say that they attended a multi-ethnic wedding during which the DJ played the music of one culture only. Instead, my clients want all of their guests to feel included in the festivities. Curious, I ask these clients why half of the guests sat out most of the reception. The commonest reply is that the DJ belongs to one of the cultures represented at the wedding, and played the music of his or her culture in order to get good reviews and clients from the culture he or she works with regularly.
