& Karaoke Pricing
This is a service oriented business, unlike
buying a product which usually has a set price. Every party I do
is different from one to another. It is hard to give an exact
price quote without knowing all of the details of your party.
There are many factors that can come into play with the price.
Location, travel, date, time, and the amount of guests are just
some of the things that can influence the cost of your party. So
the best thing to do is to call me at (408) 398-5193
or send me an email with your DAY and EVENING phone number
along with your area code and I'll
gladly give you a call.
Facts About Disc Jockey Pricing
First ask yourself, how important is
your Special Event?
is the impact the Disc Jockey / Karaoke Jockey services will
have on the overall success or failure of your special event.
In post-event surveys, clients stated that the contribution
Disc Jockey services made towards the overall success of their
special event was 85%! Whether it's a Wedding Reception,
Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Corporate Event, or a Private Party, its
success or failure depends upon the quality of services you
receive from your Disc Jockey. These are entertainment driven
events. Even though food, photos, and decor are important, It
is not the food, It is not the photos, nor is it the decor,
that determines the overall success of your event! The DJ / KJ
entertainer is the difference between, "its just another
social gathering I'm obligated to go to" OR, you and your
guests taking away magical memories of your celebration that
will be etched in your minds for a lifetime.
In the San Francisco Bay
Area the average per person cost for a vegetable platter
is $8.50 per person. Multiply that times an average event
of 175 people and that totals almost $1,500 Dollars. Is
the success of your event worth more than what you would
pay for a veggie platter?
What are the
reasons for hiring a full time Professional
Disc Jockey /
Non-professionals, don't offer all of the services a
true professional DJ / KJ should. This means,
limited experience, home stereo equipment, a limited music
library, no back-up equipment, little or no advance
planning and little or no coordination, which can lead to
major problems for a Wedding Reception, Corporate Event,
Private Party, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, or for that matter, any
Most "DJ/KJ's" have absolutely no training. They
figure if they can play a CD, and they can run what is
probably one of the biggest parties/special event you have
ever given, or one of the most important days of your
life, YOUR WEDDING . Few DJ's realize that the success or
failure of your event lies completely in their hands.
The DJ /KJ industry is full of people who work part time
for extra money. They focus on their real job during
the week and think all they have to do is show up and play
some music and they've done their job. Their focus is not
on you or your special event, and if they mess up, or at
best, give their typical "average DJ" performance, what do
they have to lose?
Many charge low rates in order
to get every job that comes their way, then they may even
sub-contract out your event to part timers whose
experience and quality may be even worse. There is no
consistency of quality you can depend on.
The current national average spent on a wedding is
$20,000; for the San Francisco Bay area, the average is
about $30,000. With the Disc Jockey being responsible for
85% of the success of your reception, doesn't it make
sense that a truly professional Disc Jockey, is not only
worth more than a veggie platter, but would also charge
more? A good DJ is worth more than some carrots and
The bottom line is this. If you
are paying less than $700 for your Disc Jockey you are
taking a mighty big chance that you will get a DJ/KJ who
is not a true professional, and/or the possibility that
your special event will be contracted out to someone who's
even less qualified than the person you hired.
If your special event is a Wedding Reception, Corporate
Event, Private Party, or Bar/Bat Mitzvah your concerns and
questions about the DJ/KJ you hire, should go far above
just the music. It takes training, experience, and
expertise, to coordinate & sequence the special events,
program & mix the music, and .... entertain your guests.
It takes experience to lead your event with just the right
finesse. Your investment in entertainment and coordination
is the most crucial one in regard to the success of your
event. If magical memories are what you are looking for ….
hire the best DJ entertainer you can afford.
