    I’d find out when/where the boss’s next party is and show up to hear how he spins before making a decision.

    Does your FMIL’s boss have a website? Maybe someone recorded a bit and posted it on YouTube? I agree—if you can stop by a party where he is working, you’d make your decision. $750 is a great deal though! I was in a similar situation. I ended up choosing the professional DJ over a “friend of a friend.” I listened to samples and saw recorded clips.

    Hmm, I usually end up making a pro & con list in a situation like this! 😉 

    $750 is a big chunk of money and it could go towards so much more. If your FMIL says he’s good, take the plunge! You should create a list of what you want played, what you don’t want played, etc. if you organize it really well (list out exactly what you want him to announce etc), it should go well! My DJ had me fill out a “schedule of events” and I made a timetable of the night. Good luck!

    750 for 7.5 hours is an awesome deal.  Especailly when the uplighting is included and all the dj’s are experienced.  Ours is 1,299.00 for the same options that you ordered and we live in a rural area.  I wouldn’t risk the “birthday party dj”.  The DJ sets the mood for the entire reception.  It’s worth the money.  Especially when it’s a good deal like you mentioned.
