How much would the insurance cost for him for a one-off event? It may be cheaper to insure him than hire someone new.

To become insured and bonded, it looks like it could cost between $100 – $400.  Plus your $350 that would bring you to $750 which is still cheaper than most DJs and most quotes I’m seeing are in the $150 range.  And you want him to be insured and bonded.  If he ends up scratching the floor or dinging the door frame bringing his equipment in or worse, either one of you could be liable for the damages.

Ask your venue if they will accept a liability waiver. My venue required a day of to have $1 million liability insurance, but I just used my friend’s sister in law who does it occasionally before. She had her insurance agent reach out the the venue coordinator and at then end of their conversation, the venue was ok with a liability waiver and my friends who helped set up day of did the same. This is what my venue had the day of and my friends who helped sign:

I NAME, release VENUE/COMPANY NAME of all liability for any damages or personal injury due to my equipment and my performance.

Have him sign and date it.

 

So basically he can’t sue them if he gets hurt or equipment gets damaged. Not sure other way around though if he damages something…
