Affordable DJ Service

Affordable Wedding DJ – Disc Jockey Service Serving Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties of Michigan

 

 

I’ll never forget the first time I attended a wedding in Bloomfield Hills. On the sly, I asked the DJ how much he would charge to do my wedding. Truthfully, I was already married at the time. I just wanted to see how much rates from “fancy” DJ companies differed from my own rates. When he quoted a price that was nearly double the amount that I charge for weddings, I asked why his rates were so steep. He immediately began to tell me about his premium system.

 

I must admit, he had a great pair of Mackie powered speakers that sounded quite clear and crisp, but no better than my own $1200 Mackie speakers. His hard drive held 40,000 songs, about half the amount installed on my own hard drive. When I asked if he offered karaoke, he said he didn’t fool with that kind of nonsense because it was too annoying. I thought that was a little strange, considering that half of my wedding clients order karaoke for their events. Preferences vary from show to show, and it’s nice to offer clients an array of options, especially if you’re charging $800 like he was.

 

Throughout the night, I watched this disc jockey’s performance. He wasn’t a terrible DJ by any means. I won’t lie; he had some good moments. He made announcements with a certain amount of style and flair, but I felt he could’ve included more “feel good” classics to get the parents dancing. His show was a little like listening to the local teen radio station: all pop with no heart and soul. When the parents of the bride begged him to include more music from their generation, he reluctantly threw a few classics into the mix. I felt he should’ve been a little more easygoing. It’s the disc jockey’s job to be pleasant and accommodating. Clients are not an interruption of our work. They are the purpose of it.

 

Before I do weddings, I consult with the bride and groom to determine their musical preferences. This includes the completion of a wedding guide that helps couples choose the perfect mix of music for their event. I also write custom wedding scripts that feature jokes or stories that hold special significance to the bride and groom. In my world, the client’s needs come first. My preferences are secondary.

 

The next time a disc jockey quotes you an ungodly rate, ask WHY his rates are so high. What can he offer that other disc jockey’s can’t deliver? Is his equipment better? Does he have a particularly massive music collection? Is he so stylish and charismatic that he deserves $800 for five hours of work? Is he willing to put your family’s desires above his own tastes and preferences?

 

To help brides and grooms cut through the clutter and identify the qualities that separate a professional DJ from a novice, I’ve included the following guide:
