DJ Hire

These days, everyone’s a DJ.

Spotify has countless playlists for parties and weddings.  Basic speakers and lighting have never been easier to buy.

And everyone knows someone who is a DJ, because everyone is a DJ.

So why even hire a professional DJ?

Top three reasons to trust a DJ instead of Spotify for your celebration:

  1. A DJ will usually have the right gear for the room.  This should mean much more than just two speakers.
  2. What if your Spotify playlist isn’t the hit you expected? A DJ will have the songs you never thought of.
  3. It’s not just about music.

What is a boutique DJ service? 

Simplified, it means it’s just me. No trainees or subcontracted DJs to cover your celebration. Hire me, get me.

 

What does this mean for you?

  • I won’t be scrambling last minute to try and find someone, ANYONE, to cover your event because my staff got a better offer.
  • The discussions you have about exactly how you see your event running are with me, the DJ who will be at your event.  Not a booking agent who is trying to manage possibly dozens of events on the same day as yours. I’m not passing the info on to an event planner or office manager or whatever contracted DJ I can find that day.
  • A long long time ago, I learnt the hard way how to be triple proof sure that I have the right info, the most important details covered, and be beyond fully prepared.
  • I have no booking agency brand name to hide behind.  It’s my name and reputation on the microphone and playing the music, so no way I’m going to do dumb stuff that will be remembered for the wrong reasons.
