What Kind of Vancouver DJ that You Need for Your Wedding Event


Are you getting married and looking for a Vancouver DJ to bring life to your wedding event? Well, look no further! In this blog post, we will outline the different types of DJs that are available in Vancouver, so you can find the right one for your big day.

In general, a DJ in Vancouver is someone who has either received formal music training or has experience in the industry. While formal music training is usually preferable, a college degree is not a need for a DJ in Vancouver. Some people have an inclined inclination, although not everyone does.

What type of music do you want at your wedding event in Vancouver?

This is the single most important piece of information that you are bound to share with your potential Vancouver DJ.

The most basic or common type of DJ in Vancouver is the Disc Jockey. This person is responsible for the musical selection of your event. These DJs are commonly referred to as “DJs”, even if they have no formal training in music whatsoever.

DJs play a selection of well-known songs that you pick from a list of recommendations. The DJ intersperses songs with announcements, to keep the dance floor full of people. They may also wish to speak with you, to ensure that the type of music that you want to play at your event is being selected.

The second type of Vancouver DJ is the Emcee. An Emcee is the master of ceremonies for your event. They are in charge of making announcements and assisting in the planning of the event’s setup. They are not typically musically inclined but have expertise in public speaking and organization.

The final type of Vancouver DJ is the Singer-songwriter. These individuals are responsible for the musical selection of your event. As the Emcee, they are not typically musicians but know how to write, perform and coordinate successful musical presentations.

What is your budget for a DJ?

Your budget for a Vancouver DJ will mostly depend on the type of service that you desire. Most of the time, your list of guests will tell you.

For example, if your event is small and intimate, you may only be willing to spend $100 – $200. This may seem cheap to some people, but is often more than what is required to hire a professional DJ in Vancouver.

There are many other variables that go into the costing of your event, such as:

  • The Number of Hours that the DJ will be Present
  • The Distance that the Dance Floor must Travel in order to reach a Constant state of Fullness
  • The size of the event venue and/or tent
  • The event’s sound system’s quality.
  • The Type of Food that will be provided and many other factors.

What kind of equipment do you need for your wedding event?

This will vary widely depending on the type of music that you wish to have at your event.

Some of the more common forms of equipment include:

Music Equipment

  • A Keyboard
  • An MP3 Player
  • A Microphone
  • A Laptop
  • A C.D. Player

The equipment listed above is common for an individual to have at their disposal. Some events may require additional forms of equipment. This can include:


  • A Video Camera
  • A Strobe Light
  • A Digital Audio Recorder
  • A Percussion instrument
  • Other

In order to have a successful wedding event, you need to plan ahead and make sure that you have enough of the right equipment.

If you’re unsure what equipment you’ll need, consider similar surveying events in your area to get a better idea of what’s needed. As you get to know your DJ, you may want to discuss your music preferences to ensure that you are happy with the music chosen for your 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.
