Blog - Using The Venue's DJ

Posted: Monday 6th December 2010 By: Andrew Broughton Views: 1224

Many venues now offer their own DJ as an add on service to help people organising events, saving them the hassle of trying to book their own DJ.

Most venues will offer such a package to make extra money, so they'll look for the cheapest DJ and make a profit on the remainder they've charged. So you could pay 500 but get a 150 DJ.

But some people want to be able to choose their DJ, making sure they get what they want. Many brides spend months (if not years) planning their perfect day and don't want the reception to be let down by the DJ, and so they prefer to meet the DJ in advance and discuss their requirements.

I am more than happy to do this but some DJs aren't interested in this preferring just to turn up and play.

In order to stop people bringing in their own DJs some venues have started charging people for this "privilege". If you find yourself in this position and you don't want to use their choice of DJ then you may want to consider calling Consumer Direct on 08454 04 05 06 or visit Kent Trading Standards.

But it's not all bad news; some venues do this to make the evening flow smoothly by recommending DJs they often work with and they can rely upon.
