10 Dead Giveaways You've Hired a Dud DJ

Is he getting sleepy, or has he had one too many?

Many of us like to knock back a few every once in a while, but just as it's not a good idea for you to show up to a business meeting sloshed, your DJ should refrain from drinking alcohol at your wedding. Yes, there will likely be plenty of booze to go around, but nothing is more unprofessional than being inebriated at work, even if your job is playing music for a room full of drunk people.

Be sure to ask your prospective DJ what his policy is regarding drinking on the job, and if he tells you anything other than "it's not going to happen," you need to find yourself another DJ.
