Some events require more planning, preparation, and equipment than others. A flat fee can’t factor in all of these things without overcharging smaller, less demanding events. That is why I don’t discuss a firm number until I fully understand what the client is seeking for their event. However, to give you a ballpark idea for your budget, you may want to take note of these DJ facts:
- Cheaper doesn’t always mean better when it comes to entertainment.
- Solo DJs may charge as low as $50/hr, where companies may go as high as $250/hr.
- The average event is 4hrs in length; the DJ must setup before and breakdown after.
- The average DJ on CraigsList doesn’t ‘mix’ the music or have a diverse library.
- Maintaining an up-to-date music library is EXPENSIVE; new songs/albums weekly.
- Weddings require coordination with photographers, waitstaff, and venue personnel.
- Birthdays are almost as involved as weddings, depending on the activities involved.
None of this is meant to scare you away. My intent is to make you consider VALUE with regards to entertainment at your event. I am not your ‘average’ DJ, but I am reasonably affordable considering the service I provide. If you would be happy with a cd player set on ‘random’ or an iPod connected to speakers, then I am not what you’re looking for. But if you want people to DANCE and remember your event, we should talk.
I am truly a Professional DJ in every sense with more than 20 years experience DJing for parties, clubs, and concerts venues. I own a POWERFUL compact professional grade sound system consisting of JBL speakers, a QSC subwoofer, top of the line Numark controller, LED lighting, and even have a Video DJ package available! I have entertained events as small as 50 guests and as large as 2000 partiers across 4 different states (MO, IL, CA, CO).
My diverse, high-quality music library can entertain ANY occasion. I use a +65,000 song library offering clean (or explicit) versions of ALL popular music genres: Oldies, Jazz, Big Band, Country, Rock, Alternative, Top 40, Pop, Hip-Hop, Dance, Electronica, Dubstep, Latin, Lounge, Reggae and Christian.
I am always courteous, conscientious, and timely with the service I provide. I truly believe it is impossible to find a better DJ with regards to experience, talent, quality of service/equipment, and range of music in my price range.
