Although we have done many virtual events, we wanted to share this Mehndi with you. We have been blessed to entertain at events in-person all over the world including England, Spain, Africa, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Cancun, Cabo, Canada, and all over the United States. Now we get to entertain people in different continents all at once. We know what couples need when hiring a virtual Indian wedding DJ. This is very different than local in-person weddings. Make sure you hire someone with a lot of experience in virtual events. Some DJ's will have trouble with technology, quality of streaming equipment and presence of mind. If you need a DJ that knows how to make virtual Indian weddings fun, contact us here.
You were probably planning a Big Fat Indian Wedding pre-Covid. Suddenly, the world changed and your plans were shattered. We are all navigating through the new normal. Some couples kept their date, some postponed their dates and others went virtual. Either way, we will make sure the weddings are entertaining and we will help create fun memories for all of our couples.
The main purpose of this blog is to share with couples a guideline to a smooth virtual Indian wedding weekend. If you want new music lists on Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube or want some Non-Stop Mixes, fill out the form on this page.
Virtual Indian Wedding DJ for a Reception
Virtual Indian weddings can be a lot of fun for many reasons. The number of people attending is smaller than the typical big fat Indian wedding. This means you will only have the people you care most about with you in-person or virtually. We love making each virtual Indian wedding unique.
Virtual Indian Wedding DJ Technology
This is what sets us apart from most Indian Wedding DJs. We were streaming virtually before the pandemic and that's why we have much more experience with it.
1) High speed Internet with the correct configuration to stream events
2) Extensive experience with backend streaming software
3) Multi-platform streaming for users to create redundancies
4) Proper studio lighting
5) Professionally designed backgrounds
6) HD Video cameras
7) Multiple powerful computers for music and streaming
8) Green screen setups with a professional look and feel
Virtual Indian Wedding DJ Options
See and hear us mixing live with a professional setup. Live streams are 100% customizable; with music, lighting, backgrounds and more. The couple and their guests can request songs in advance and during the stream. High quality video and audio is streamed directly to your guest’s devices. A modern, engaging, and professional experience.
1) Hybrid In-person and Streaming guests
This is the most popular option. The DJ is physically there to entertain the guests that are present and is also sending a high quality video and audio feed to all of the virtual guests. This usually happens when there is a good amount of people that are physically there and watching online. We have done this many times and can do it for you. This is something that comes very natural to us and it shows in our reviews and videos. Check out an example of this below. During live events, all of the songs come in perfectly. During replays websites will mute or trim out songs. You may notice this in all of the videos since these are all events that have already taken place and are not live right now.
2) All Virtual
This is where you have a very intimate wedding with a few family and friends. We will provide good audio and video streams for everyone. Similar to the people watching online, the couple will also log into the stream to hear all the great music. We would set up a HD audio/video feed from our office and you can play it anywhere using a home speaker system or portable bluetooth speakers. We have a lot of experience with this and our feeds are professional because of our cameras, lighting, streaming softwares and our experience as virtual hosts for many events. Here is an example of it below. During live events, all of the songs come in perfectly. During replays websites will mute or trim out songs. You may notice this in all of the videos since these are all events that have already taken place and are not live right now.
Recently there has been a big demand for drive-bys for everything from weddings, engagements, birthdays and graduations. We play music, make announcements and keep the party moving with our unique setups. Our experience with baraats, has made this a lot of fun for everyone to be a part of. Check out our setup in the back under the red canopy for Aamer & Khushi's engagement drive by. We made sure all of the cars coming by were entertained by our music and announcements. Christopher Hughes Photo captured the event. It was so great to see people with their cars decorated, smiling, singing and dancing as they stopped by to give love to the couple.
Carefully curated playlists for all wedding related events. We can give you background music to play for all of your events and customize it based on your tastes and needs. We can do this on Spotify, Apple Music or where ever you need it. Here is an example of a Bollywood playlist we made for new songs on Spotify.
5) Custom Mixes
We can make you custom mixes that you can play for open dance floors or the perfect dinner time vibe that is non-stop and just includes the best parts of songs rather than the entire song. These are highly customizable and perfect for couples that love music. This mix was made for promotional use only so it has our name drops in it. If we make you a custom mix, we can use your names in the drop or make it without any voiceover in it.
Virtual Indian Wedding MC
1) Keeping everyone involved
Because there is a smaller audience you need someone to help keep everyone involved. The MC helps guests physically there and virtually both focused on whats happening. They are the ones that get people excited for key moments.
2) Muting when needed
Some virtual events get side tracked with guests speaking too much. The MC will make sure people only speak when they are supposed to.
3) Live stream chat requests
There may be questions during the events that need to be answered. Whats next, or what time something is supposed to happen, or technical questions someone may have.
4) Take Virtual Song Requests
While the DJ is playing great music, there may be requests to play a song. The MC can check the chats and make sure the DJ is aware of the requests that are virtually coming in.
5) Audio and video feeds quality
The MC also is critical in quality control for audio and video feeds. They are constantly checking to make sure everyone is receiving a great feed.
6) Games based on the couple
They can help keep everyone stay entertained with games or questions.
