I frequently receive calls from people that are just "checking for prices". It is a well known fact the DJ can either make or break your wedding reception party, or other special event so hiring the cheapest DJ is not always a good idea. Especially in this age of technology where everyone has a phone, laptop or some other device capable of playing digital music. Some people "think" that they are a "DJ" but get in trouble when it comes to playing the right songs at the right time and keeping a nice consistant flow and all guests happy throughout the event. If this is a special event to you, then paying a little more for a professional DJ shouldn't be an issue.
