What You Should Expect From A Children's Disco Entertainer: The Equipment

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

So you've booked your children's disco entertainer; you've got the confirmation of booking. The day arrives, and he's going to be bringing all of his stuff. Shock horror! What will he be bringing with him? Did you forget to ask?

Well not to worry! This guide will give you a reasonable idea as to what you can expect your entertainer to bring with him as part of the price, and what you will probably have to pay extra for.

Of course, this is a guide only, and all disco entertainers are different. The bottom line is to check what he will be bringing!

Essential equipment


The first thing to consider is the speaker system. Most speakers will be loud enough for an average function of say 0-30 children. However, larger sets of children, such as a school year, can be exceptionally loud when in the same hall. This means that the disco will need to be loud enough for all the children to hear him.

CD Player/iPod/other

Without CDs, there is no music! Well, that's not strictly true. The entertainer may make use of an iPod or other similar device to play the songs with instead. Please be aware that there are certain licenses to be adhered to when music is in non-CD format. If the entertainer isn't using CDs, then he or she may require something known as a pro-dub license.


What is a disco without lights? Most DJ entertainers will bring a lightshow with them, but not all lightshows are equal! Where one entertainer might turn up with a single light, other entertainers will come with a much more impressive lighting rig. Remember to ask about the entertainer's lightshow. Most entertainers with a decent show will have had pictures taken to show you.

Common equipment

Bubble Machine

A lot of entertainers bring a bubble machine with them. These are brilliant fun for children of any age and will often get them jumping around trying to catch as many bubbles as they can before the music even starts!

If the entertainer is bringing a bubble machine, then you should ask about safety aspects such as a slippery floor. Your entertainer should bring a non-slip mat or similar safety feature to counteract this potential safety hazard.

Smoke Machine

Children also love smoke machines, and they are able to enhance any lightshow. They turn a laser or LED light from just a collection of dots on the floor into a beautiful array of light.

Depending on the exact smoke machine, please be wary that there is a chance of setting off a fire alarm if too much is used. To counteract this problem, it may be plausible to leave a window or door open to let the smoke disperse naturally after it has done its job. ÂThanks for reading!
