A Cheap DJ is like a Roach Motel

Planning a trip or a vacation takes less planning than planning an event or a wedding. But both are very important when it comes to your experience and life long memories. Either way, you want the absolute best experience possible. The trip or vacation you plan is usually a much needed time away to unwind and enjoy life. Your accommodations should be just as stress free, relaxing, and memorable as your destination.  Let us explain to you why Booking a Cheap DJ is like Staying at a “Roach Motel“.



Have you ever made a reservation at a place and they mess up or lose your information? Most Cheap DJs don’t have much organizational awareness. You know this by the way they simply say, “Yeah, I’ll Do It”. Then you don’t hear from them and/or can’t get in contact with them quickly. Well, what if you have questions? What if you start wondering if they’re actually coming? How do you know that they will actually meet your expectations? Is none of this important because you got the best price possible? The reason you stay at a well known establishment on your trip is the same reason you Book a well known/ Professional DJ Service,  because they have established themselves to be reliable and have organization systems in place to ensure client satisfaction. Also, what if you arrived at your destination and they had no central air, hot water, or even locks on their doors? A professional DJ company stays in constant contact with their clients and has a reliable system of communication and organization.


gross motel roomWe want you to imagine the visual feel of those $29 per night motel rooms. Can you see the ridiculous floral pattern “comforter” (that isn’t really that comfortable), the smoke stained walls, the cracked bathroom mirror (that you can’t help but feel like there is a camera behind it), the “Large” 27 inch tube T.V. that swivels atop an off colored brown 4 drawer dresser, and the base heater system that seems to make a rattling noise constantly. Is this the place you want to stay in on vacation? Probably not.

That feel is very similar to what your guests have when you book a $150 or $200 DJ for your event. Most Cheap DJs have set ups that are just “Eye Sores”; wires that seem to spaghetti themselves around everything and are an array of different colors, large speakers that seem to emit more static than a poorly tuned radio station, attire that is supposed to be professional but just doesn’t seem to fit correctly, sometimes even a “Desktop” computer Tower to operate their Digital sound system, or a house stereo CD Player, or “Banners” that showcase some poorly designed logo/website information, the list goes on and on.



Don’t get tricked by fancy wording for one star bookings and think… “Well it sounds legit and it’s half the price”. When they say they have a “Continental Breakfast”, it’s basically just old fruit, store bought pastries, Orange “Drink” (instead of Orange Juice), and the old cereal packages that you would find at morning breakfast in grade school. Their “Business Center” usually consists of an old desktop computer that is connected to a printer. “High Speed Internet” and “Wifi” that seems to be only accessible in the lobby near the business center. A “Shuttle Service” that is just one rusty cargo van driven by the head custodian when he isn’t fixing broken chairs. Why would you subject yourself to these conditions in an important time of your life, just to save on cost? Just the same, why would you book a DJ that: Drinks too much during the event, babbles over top of the music, doesn’t help with the planning process, makes passes at your wedding guests, has faulty equipment (7 out of 10 wedding receptions you cannot hear the DJ or the speeches due to cheap microphones), doesn’t play the right music for your guests due to only being trained for one “type” of wedding, doesn’t set up on time, is unable to take requests because they’re using CD’s or have a limited selection of music, doesn’t keep a good flow of events (stops the music abruptly to do one of your special events), and of course… the list goes on and on.

So to sum up this article, don’t let price be your first and/or your deciding factor in selecting your DJ. Treat yourself to the most accommodating DJ that meets your expectations. It’s a special day for you. You want to be stress free, and create memories (GOOD ONES).

So… BOOK THAT DJ!!! You’ll have a great experience!

Your DJ will make or break your event, just like your Hotel/Motel accommodations will heighten or ruin your vacation/trip experience.

Sometimes Trying To Save Can Cost You More.


Get the Best Wedding DJ.

Your Wedding DJ is the most important aspect of your reception. The music has to be perfect, the sound has to be perfect, the announcements have to be clear, and so much more. Make sure you decide on a professional wedding DJ for your special day. Don’t base your decision on one factor. Get informed and do your research.

We recently received an Email from a Bride that we were talking to about our services. Our bride and grooms become like family for our Wedding DJs. Even if they don’t decide to book with us, we treat every couple just as important. Because we care about them having the best experience for their Wedding Day as possible.

Here is what the Email Said:


We wanted to take a moment to tell you that we were sorry. We went with another company, ########(that will not be mentioned in this post) because they offered such a great price. It was only $200 for our wedding. We had the worst experience on our day we could imagine. The DJ had a terrible looking set up. The sound was unbearable at times, the speakers kept clicking and making a lout screech noise when we were doing our speeches. The DJ Sat down most of the time. And so much more. We wanted to take a moment to tell you we wish we would’ve went with your services. We will be telling all of our friends and relatives to contact you. Your prices weren’t that high, we just wanted to save as much on our wedding as possible since we were paying for it ourselves. If you want, you can use this as a testimonial for your business. To inform any other couple looking for a DJ, not to make a decision merely on price. Thank you for being so helpful through our process and still being here for us when we needed recommendations for other vendors. I will be telling everyone to Book That DJ.

Sincerely Regretful,

######## ############


We heard the best quote ever recently:

“I can’t afford to go cheap.”


low cost dj, worst dj, dj scam,

Don’t get Scammed by the Flashy Low Price.

Low Price typically means Low Quality. Every wonder why your neck line or finger turns green after wearing that jewelry you got for a Great Price? It’s not the best quality.

We want to share this in order to inform future Bride and Grooms that there are a lot of options out there. Make sure you choose the best option for you by considering all aspects. Your DJ is the most important aspect of your Wedding Reception.
