How to Find Best Vancouver DJ Company Near Me? | DJing.ca


I’m sure you’ve heard the term “DJ” used in reference to someone who plays music at a party or event. While this may be an accurate description of many Vancouver DJ, it’s not always the case! There are so many different types and styles that it can be difficult to know what type of DJ you need if you’re looking for one near me.

So how do I decide which type of Vancouver DJ is best suited for my needs?

You could try to find out through personal experience. You might have a friend who has a great time with some DJ’s, or maybe you went to your first rave when you were younger and remember it being amazing! Maybe even you just love dancing and want to get into the swing of things again. If any of these sound like reasons why you’d enjoy DJ’ing, then perhaps it would be worth trying out.

If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, though, there are other ways to determine which type of Vancouver DJ is right for you.

  1. The most common way is to simply Google the name of the person or company you’re interested in. This will give you their website address as well as their Facebook page and Twitter account.
  2. Another method is to look up their music on iTunes and Spotify (or similar) using the artist’s name and genre.
  3. The final method for finding out about a Vancouver DJ is through personal recommendations. Ask your friends if they’ve worked with any good ones in the past!

Once you’ve found out about a couple of potential candidates, you’ll need to compare them. Alternatively, if you already know what kind of Vancouver DJ makes your heart flutter, go ahead and skip to that section.

The first thing you should ask when comparing potentials is whether or not one offers services that the other doesn’t. For example, if one offers high quality lighting but doesn’t have any public liability insurance, this would be considered a “deal breaker.”

After that, you’ll need to look at their general online presence.

Here are the things or qualities of a Vancouver DJ you consider before you get hired these include:

1. References

This is by far the most important quality. Never select a company if you haven’t checked their references! Call some of the references and also make sure they are from a recent job; sometimes companies will have great references from five years ago but are not so great now.

2. Availability

Make sure to choose a company that has the availability that will work for your event. For example, if you’re planning a wedding, some DJs are only available on weekends, while some are available every day. Also, if you need a DJ for an evening event, some DJs charge more because they would actually be losing money by working then instead of doing a paid event.

3. Music Selection

Make sure the company can provide a DJ that has a taste in music similar to yours. Also, make sure that the DJ will pay attention to what kind of music you do and don’t want at your event.

4. Personality

Finally, find a DJ that is a good personality fit with you. Most companies will have websites where you can read about various DJs. Find one that you think would best suit your taste. If not, call them on the phone and talk to them; if they sound like someone you can get along with, then they probably will be a good fit.

5. Price

Make sure you have a price range in mind before speaking with any potential DJs. Generally, you will be able to find a suitable DJ for any price range; however, as the prices go up, so do the quality and reliability. DJs that charge more are generally more reliable and professional.

The final step is comparing all of the selections you have come up with and choosing the business with the best combination of cost, reliability, flexibility, and work history.

There are a few other things to think about once you’ve made your choice. For example, DJs need to be hired well in advance of when you actually need them. For this reason, if your wedding is in 2 months and your selected DJ is already booked, you’ll need to find another.

If cost is an issue, consider booking further in advance. Most Vancouver DJs will give discounts if you book a year or more in advance. Also, keep in mind that prices generally increase as the date gets closer.

Finally, once you’ve booked your Vancouver DJ, make sure you get everything in writing. This should include the important information like the specific services they will be providing, contact information, prices, and payment methods. It’s also very important to have a signed contract that protects both you and the DJ.

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.
