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.

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.
