What factors can affect the cost of hiring a Vancouver DJ?

The first factor is the level of experience. A beginner can cost $40 per hour, while an expert can cost $60 or more. The second factor is availability. A weekday evening will cost less than a Saturday night, even when the latter is a holiday such as New Year’s or a birthday. The third factor is the type of event. A wedding or a bar mitzvah will cost more than a corporate event or a birthday party for a child. The last factor is the location. A city-center event will cost more than a rural event.

What are some tips for finding affordable DJs in Vancouver?

There are a few tricks to finding an affordable price for a DJ. The first thing you need to do is decide how important the music is to your event. If the music is the primary focus of your event, it’s probably a good idea to hire a more experienced and better-quality DJ. Otherwise, you might be able to find a less expensive DJ to provide music for your event.

Next, you’ll want to determine the amount of time that you need the DJ to be on-site. A full-time DJ will probably have a cost per hour that’s higher than a part-time DJ. You should plan on taking into account any travel time to and from the event.

Finally, you can request a free consultation with several DJs. Be upfront with your requests and don’t be afraid to ask for a lower price if the DJ of your choosing is not well-equipped or experienced enough. There you have it!

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
