Tips On How To Select The Right Vancouver DJ For Your Event

Before you begin to look for a Vancouver DJ, it is important to set some ground rules. Your music taste must be understood and respected. Also, your budget must be taken into consideration. Many Vancouver DJs have set rates that are far below what you would be willing to pay. Lastly, location is also an important factor. Some Vancouver DJs have not been based in the city all that long.

Here are some tips on how to select the right Vancouver DJ for an event:

1. Considerations

  • The first consideration should be the price. High prices usually mean that the Vancouver DJ is trying to get you to pay for his or her services. In general, you should be looking to spend around $100 – $200 per hour.
  • Next, and just as important, is the “DJ reputation“. This will speak for itself, you just need to look for good references.
  • A third consideration is the “client reference”. This will give you some indication of how well the Vancouver DJ can work with others. It is important that you are not satisfied with a response on how well a particular DJ works with others. You must be provided with client references, so be sure to ask for them.
  • You must be clear on what you want.

2. You must be clear on what you want.

  • Many DJs will provide you with a list of their existing clients with their contact information. Always ask to see these references before making a hiring decision.
  • If a list of references is not provided, you will have to request them from the current or former clients. Be sure to clearly state what you are looking for.

3. Always have a “Plan B”.

This will give you some peace of mind and ensure that your event is not compromised.

4. If the potential DJ has not provided you with sufficient references, you can still choose to work with him or her.

It is simply a question of whether you want to place trust in the particular DJ.

  • If you have provided the references that you are able to, and the prospective DJ has not provided you with satisfactory references, then it is probably best that you do not choose him or her.
  • You can also take the time to investigate the background of the DJ yourself. This way you can make an informed decision as to whether he or she is suitable for the event you are planning.

As always, you must remember that you are under the ultimate responsibility for the success of your event. The Vancouver DJs are simply providing the musical component of the event.

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.
