Hiring a Professional Disc Jockey/MC vs. a Risky Amateur DJ

Let’s be honest, here. When planning and preparing for our “shindig” or extravaganza we find ourselves shopping around for what we all commonly call a “DJ” as the “go to” for our event’s or party’s main or featured entertainment. As we begin our search, and without realizing it, we have already assumed that all DJs are created equal and we use price as our guide for comparison among all DJs. What a huge risky mistake, when we are taken in by a price which could completely mislead us and impact our events with endless negatives: Lateness, no shows, bad music, unmaintained equipment, equipment breakdown, unprofessional attire and attitude, etc. So many things can go wrong when buying a DJ service, which was contracted for your special event, simply based on price. ALL DJs ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL! Therefore, it is fair to say that we should never consider contracting any entertainment services for our event based on price, alone. Consider this: Are all cars created equal? NO! Don’t we pay more money for a better or high-end automobile? YES! We truly live in a world where we generally get what we pay for. There are so many differences that need to be considered before price is used, as a comparison method to contract a DJ or entertainment company.  Including the level of natural talent, the DJ/MC’s entertainer ability and speaking voice, personality, music selection, add-ons, available options, condition of equipment and lighting, etc. The list goes on! With this said, we need to develop a deeper sense for and understanding of the main difference between a Professional DJ/MC (One who does this line of entertainment/work full-time and can’t afford failures against their brand or name) and an amateur DJ (One who usually has a day job and will claim that “they are #1 ” or “the best around” and gives you a low price so you book them, while you also give them the chance to make total disaster of your event). Today, the decision-making process has gotten even harder, with every amateur John, Don, and Uncle Tom or “friend-of-a-friend” that claims to be a  DJ or DJ company. Sadly, the saturation of the Professional Disc Jockey Trade with these “wannabe” amateurs has made it so difficult for most of us, who need to employ a dependable quality service for their event or celebration party. Our best advice is always shop smart and hire a Professional Disc Jockey/MC Service or company for your Wedding DJ, Bar Mitzvah DJ, Bat Mitzvah DJQuinceañera DJ, Sweet 16 DJ, Corporate Event DJ, Fund-raiser DJ / Fundraiser DJClass Reunion DJ, Basic DJ Entertainment, etc.! If you need to compare pricing with budgetary restraints being an issue, just make sure that you are comparing “apples to apples” not “apples to oranges”. This way, the success of your event, party or future parties will never be threatened by an amateur.

One last thought: A lower price does not guarantee you an equal service in your comparison of DJs. Hiring a Professional DJ/MC, entertainer or entertainment company may cost a little more, but usually worth every penny. At minimum, you are assured of a professional level of industry standard services, with a possible disaster happening at your event or party highly unlikely.
