Not surprisingly, most professional, reputable DJs charge more for their services than a hobby DJ who is just looking to make a few extra bucks on the side. Question a company that is low in cost… there’s a good chance you will be putting the success of your event at risk in order to save a few dollars. Be certain that you understand their basic fee, set-up times, travel costs, overtime charges, due dates for deposits and balances, and arrival time.
Also, keep in mind all the time and money you already have committed to your event and the impact the DJ has on how everything turns out. If the venue was average, the food was ordinary, the speeches were too long, but the entertainment was phenomenal, your guests will remember your night as a success.
The entertainment really can make or break your event. If your brother’s “friend” will do it for a few hundred dollars less than a reputable, experienced, professional DJ, think twice before jumping at the lower price. Paying a little more for a much better DJ and an assurance of an excellent night is usually a great investment.
