What is Liability Insurance & do I need it?

If you are having your event at a venue such as a hotel, then most likely YES! Liability insurance protects the venue in case of equipment falling and causing unforeseen harm as well as provides medical compensation to the patron or patrons in need. So if a venue requests a DJ to have liability insurance then plan to pay more for the DJ.

Why? Simple, it all boils down to overhead costs. The more investment a DJ has to make in his or her services the more that DJ will need to charge to cover those expenses. Thankfully with Great Rate DJs we can add supplemental liability insurance on a “per-event” basis for DJs that do not already offer this for an additional charge.

So regardless if you’re having a small backyard get together or a large event at a hotel, Great Rate DJs can match you with just the right services so you only pay for what you need and not what you don’t want.

Plan on-line and save!

More and more DJ’s and DJ companies are allowing clients to plan their entire event online including choosing their favorite music. As people are more cost conscious then ever before this can be a great way to save on costs. The less time a DJ has to spend meeting with clients the more time he or she will have to perform other events so this can be a win/win for everyone.

Wedding on a Budget: Finding a DJ

In most cases, brides and grooms share a special song or two and know exactly which selection they would like played for their first dance, but the music chosen after that is very important to determining if the reception is a delight or a dud.

If you are on a tight budget for your wedding, you may have thought of having an inexperienced friend be the DJ or (gulp) use an iPod. When going this route, here are some things to consider and questions that need answers: Which unlucky friend would have to “work” your wedding? How would you ensure a good flow and rhythm to your reception? What is your backup plan? Saving money is important, but at the expense of giving your guests a good time?

With Great Rate DJs, you will be relieved to find wedding DJs in your price range, who will make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process… from planning to performance. You can save the most by having a DJ assigned to you a few weeks before your event. However, for only a little more, you can also choose your DJ from our large network of affordable entertainers.
