A. Make sure you choose a provider with backups. While a single person DJing could do a good job, if he/she becomes sick at the last minute, your event will be ruined.
Also, the DJ should really bring extra equipment in the event that any of his/her equipment malfunctions during the event.
A. Do you have backups in case your equipment is to malfunction?
Do you have multiple employees to fill in, in the event that the person scheduled becomes sick or can’t make the event?
How long have you been in business?
How much setup time do you need?
Can you access music on demand that you do not already have in your library for guests who would like to make requests?
What are your payment procedures?
A. Plan out a reasonable budget to spend on DJing and decide what you want. While DJs do need to be creative and come up with catchy ways to improve the event, the event coordinators need to provide some direction to the DJs so that they can know where to start.
Also, DJing is much harder than it may seem and is not as easy as just “turning a few things on and pressing play.” Don’t underestimate how hard the DJ may work and think that a higher price is absolutely unreasonable. It all depends on what you are actually getting.
A. We provide both lighting and music to our clients. We also provide a virtually unlimited database of music to the guests and hosts of all events. Our focus is keeping the client happy, and the event running smoothly, and we are quite accommodating.
A. We are most commonly asked why prices in DJs vary so much. DJs can offer a wide range of services, and depending on what you are getting, the pricing could be drastically different.
Take, for example, a car. The cheapest package in a car model lacks the bells and whistles than the more pricey package has. Just like cars, some DJs can offer a relatively simple experience; just two speakers and a laptop or other means of playing music could be what you are getting. Other DJs also offer on-demand music services (we do), so that guests can request music on-the-fly even if it is not in their library already.
What generally bumps the price up the most with DJs is lighting. Lighting can consist of a few colored effect lights for a dance area, or lighting the entire venue including a total blown-out dance floor experience AND fancy but soothing lighting throughout the venue. We offer all options to suit any customer.
Make sure that when you get a quote from a DJ that you know EXACTLY what you are getting. Unfortunately, just saying “lighting” on a quote doesn’t cut it. Like mentioned previously, lighting could include anything from one simple colored effect light, to the most amazing performance you have ever seen.
