7 Reasons NOT To Hire A Cheap DJ


#1        Thereís a high probability that a cheap DJ wonít be in business by the time your wedding arrives.

Many low-priced (in other words cheapDJs arenít charging enough to support their own businesses for the long term; youíre just financing their hobby.  Meanwhile, your wedding is 6-12 months away or more. We have received those calls from puzzled and desperate couples who had found a fantastic deal on the internet hiring a DJ who canceled on them at the last minute.


#2        Amateurs are less invested in their performance than a full time wedding professional. 

An amateur DJ would probably be doing it for fun and if something goes wrong, itís not a big deal. A wedding professional, on the other hand, risks his entire reputation and livelihood with every performance. One bad review can destroy his business and he knows it really well.


#3        Your wedding is a unique event that requires the skills and experience of a wedding specialist for a smooth, flawless ceremony and reception.

Itís more than just playing music. Your wedding DJ is responsible for coordinating the timeline, orchestrating the introduction (or entrance) and flow of events, working with your other vendors, managing the guests, reading the crowd and making sure the right song is played at just the right time.  Even a DJ who is experienced in the club setting will probably be at a loss because he simply isnít familiar with the flow of events, the complexities of a wedding reception and how to prevent disasters when such a thing is needed.


#4        Your guests wonít dance without an experienced entertainer who can read the crowd and keep the momentum going. 

You have to play the right songs at the right time, and in the right order with the proper perspective in order to keep people dancing. Oftentimes the mood changes and your entertainer needs to change the program so as to make sure he keeps the dance floor engaged. Many couples think that providing an amateur with a set list of songs they love will be enough to make a memorable wedding. Apparently itís not. You need someone with experience to work with your requests and what your guests are responding to in order to avoid an empty dance floor.


#5        An amateur doesnít have the experience to include your unique requests in a way that truly expresses your personality AND keeps people dancing. 

You canít make your guests dance to the songs you like, if they donít feel the same way. However, you can probably understand that your DJ needs to read the crowd. Along with this ability he will also needs some experience in building sets of music around your preferences, by combining your tastes along with his experience. This is what we normally do most of the times anyway.


#6        An amateur DJ has inadequate or even non-existent backup equipment, which means that if any piece of hardware fails you would probably be left without music at your wedding. 

We would highly suggest, a fully functional backup system on the premises so you can make sure you have music at your wedding no matter what. Most DJs wonít have a backup plan because this would probably raise their potential costs and the overall investment.


#7        DJs who charge less invest less into their business, operations and artistry. This means that the quality of their service will be inferior compared to a full time wedding professional. 

A good sound system, an experienced wedding DJ and a professional entertainment company are considered a quite expensive sport to deal with. They need a large investment in manpower, time, effort, money and lotís of hard work to make all these things work efficiently. An amateur or semi-professional most likely still lacked the chance of meeting the breakthrough where the hobby becomes a serious profession and this will definitely be reflected on your wedding.
