Looking for a reasonably priced DJ..........Just was is reasonable


Looking for a reasonably priced DJ..........Just was is reasonable

I had to write this blog because well let's face it, that is said quite a bit whether you're looking for a plumber, mechanic, contractor, painter, clothes, restaurant etc. But just was is reasonable? That is really very subjective depending on your means and what you're looking for. The other night my wife and I were watching American Restorations and this guy bought in an old Michelin Man compressor that was just in bad shape. He had purchased it at a yard sale for $40.00 and because he had owned a tire shop he thought it was really cool. In order to refurbish it and make it like new the cost was going to be $1500.00. My wife was like, Is he crazy!!! and i thought well it has some value to him because of his passion and past occupation so he went for it. The same show had another gentleman bringing in an old Saf Way red wagon that he had gotten as a child for Christmas in the 40's. To bring it to like brand new condition was $600.00 and we both thought that it was well spent because it held many memories and was very special so to both of us it was reasonable. When looking for a DJ it is also very subjective because most people don't really shop for DJs that often and may not be aware of the costs, what it takes us to actually run a event and the fact that the prices vary from $150.00 weekend warrior to a $10,000.00 wedding DJ. For arguments sake let's take a small birthday event for 4 hours. The prices can range anywhere from $150-$600 or more so how do you figure what is reasonable. It's really up to the individual that is looking but it's also up to the DJ that is bidding on the job to show why his $600.00 service is more reasonable than the $150.00 guy. What do you want out of the event, do you want everyone dancing, do you want the dj to play all different kinds of music, do you want him to be interactive and lead dances and get people to have fun not just dancing but with some party games. Do you want everyone going home saying that this was the best party they had been to or are you just happy with someone playing music and that's it. I am happy to say that we not only have never had anyone say that we weren't worth what we charged but more often they say they would have paid even more for the services we provided. Not to say that we are in the low end but we always give our customers more than they expect but does that translate into reasonable.....NO! We still get many that don't hire us because we are more than they expected and I'm okay with that because not everyone is going to be your customer and that doesn't mean you weren't reasonable, you were just not reasonable for them. So when you put out an ad or look for a recommendation on Facebook or from friends looking for a good DJ that is reasonably priced be ready because you will get bombarded with many from the cheapest to most expensive and remember that what you may see as unreasonably high someone else may see as inexpensive for the service they provide. It's all a matter of perception. As always i hope that i gave some insight into thinking about what you should look for when searching out entertainment for your next event and hopefully that will be FMJ Productions Musically Yours, Frank M.
