When Did Being a DJ Become a Bad Thing?

When Did Being a DJ Become a Bad Thing? We’re not sure when, we’re not sure how, but somewhere along the line being a DJ become a taboo topic.

I can certainly understand why. I mean, the definition of a DJ is this: someone who… “plays recorded music on the radio or at a club or party.”

That can really be ANYONE. And really, it doesn’t cost much to be a “DJ” by definition. All you need is a laptop, some speakers, and some illegally downloaded music.

So now that, by definition, a DJ is just someone that can play some music, you’ve got a bunch of guys with some songs that can play those songs at your special event.


A DJ is not a DJ. Talent is a HUGE part of the equation. We’re proud to call ourselves DJs, and we’re proud that we’ve got the talent to back it up.

Playing recorded music is a HUGE part of what we do, yes. But playing that music in an order that builds emotion and keeps everyone on the dance floor all night long is what separates the pros and the wannabes, and at Mint DJ Events, we’re 100% professional.

We’re proud of being DJs, and consistently work to improve our craft and to improve the public’s perception about what DJs should be. We could have called ourselves Mint Entertainment, but we choose Mint DJ Events for a reason.

Contact us today and let’s chat, we think you’ll love our approach. Every event we perform at is treated like it’s the biggest event of our careers, because that’s the only way to get the world to “Believe the Hype”.
