Why are some wedding DJ companies so inexpensive?
Some DJ's give bargain deals. Unfortunately, this is a case of "you get what you pay for." Many DJ's aren't able to deliver what a true professional DJ should be able to offer. This means limited experience, cheap equipment, a limited music library, no back-up equipment and little or no advanced planning or training which can lead to major problems at your reception. Most DJ's have little or no training. The industry is full of people who DJ part-time to make extra money. Many companies charge low rates in order to get every job that comes their way and then they may even sub-contract your event to a part-timer who lacks the experience of a professional DJ.
Nora Events normally invests 12-30 hours on most wedding receptions. Consultations, meetings, music editing, preparation, set-up and tear-down and other business related endeavors add up to the overall success of your special day. You are investing in knowledge, experience and peace of mind.
