Good luck with that! $100 is extremely cheap. We actually are getting ours for $400 for the entire night but we know the DJ and have been to many parties that he has DJ’ed for and he is great!

Just keep an open mind.

Wow! $100? I"m a little leery. Why so cheap? Is he new? Just check into that

Our DJ was $500. He was good, but I mean, that’s like, $100/hour. For playing music….

um, 100.00 is very low. good luck to you for finding the deal. just make sure you get references and check them out.

and, um, a good dj does more than play music. they should know how to spin and transition well. if they have a computer with them, i wouldn’t think that highly of them. they should also be able to read the crowd and emcee well. and, don’t forget they have all that equipment (or at least should), so you are paying for more than just someone playing music. if you think that is all your dj does, it’s probably better to just go with an ipod because that’s less expensive.

i consider dj’s to be like any other entertainers. their price tag (usually) reflects their talent.

That makes me leery, too. Sometimes super cheap isn’t always a good thing. We paid $850 for our DJ but I have heard he is one of the bests. Entertainment is such a big part of the night that I didn’t want to risk it on someone just to save a few dollars.
