Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Are the DJ you hiring is qualified?
Yes. We are very selective and particular about what we do. Celebrity DJs would not settle for anything but the best qualities. All of our DJs are trained in the Signature method before any of them do an event for us. Our staff of DJs are comprised of personable, mature, neatly groomed and experienced individuals. They have done hundreds of events, large and small, and can adapt to the most demanding situations. Many of them have radio experience and club experience in addition to wedding experience and hold a variety of awards attained through excellence in the field. We also insure that the DJ at your event is "age appropriate". Training and techniques are on going in group meetings to insure that you are getting the very latest in entertainment. They are constantly evaluated at their performances and by online client surveys after each event to insure ongoing quality.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Why are some DJ companies cheaper than others?
First of all and probably most important, good talent isn't cheap! Experienced DJ's get more for their events and so do you. Experience really does make a difference. Secondly, cheaper companies tend to be run out of their pocket with no support staff. This usually makes them hard to reach and quite frankly they just don't have the time to spend with you. The cheaper the price, the more likely the DJ is a part-timer or hobbyist. And lastly, good equipment is expensive, but you get what you pay for. It's less likely to breakdown and certainly you will be able to tell the difference in quality. And don't overlook other things like the music source, (obtained through places like Limewire, does not pass the quality test), insurance, appearance and many other little things that go into a reputable business.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. How much should I expect to pay for a DJ?
This is a difficult question to answer because price is affected by the needs of each individual client. It is accurate to say that you should expect to pay between $100-$500 for each performance hour. When deciding on the price that you want to pay, you should take into account the level of organizational skill if your DJ will be in charge of your reception, the type and amount of equipment if you will have over 250 guests, and how responsible you expect your DJ to be for the success of your party. The DJ services that can satisfy your needs will have higher prices as you demand that the DJ be more responsible, more organized, and better equipped. DJ services will often offer discounts for off-season, mid-week or very simply events.
