Typical DJ Prices in Penzance


Firstly, a disclaimer. There are LOTS of mobile DJs and entertainment companies out there, mostly run by individuals - some as a part-time extension of their hobby and others as a full-time professional business. There are endless debates about pricing on DJ forums and social media groups, with some DJs happy to work for under £100 a night and others that "wouldn't load the van" for less than £500 for the same event. So there is a much wider range of pricing (and service level) than in many other industries, for example plumbers. There is no such thing as a 'standard DJ'!

However, many people have never booked a DJ before and have no idea when it comes to how much they should budget. So what we've done is look at the details for literally hundreds of events that have taken place in and around the Penzance area to come up with some guideline pricing showing typical rates for common types of event. We update these price ranges on a regular basis to reflect current trends.

The only sure way to get accurate prices is to request FREE DJ quotes for your Penzance party or event.

What type of DJ is right for my party?

You can expect a low-cost DJ in Penzance to attend your function with a basic sound rig, often just a couple of entry-level speakers to provide sound for the dancefloor, and a small selection of lighting effects working in "sound-to-light" mode - ie. flashing different colours in time to the beat. You can expect limited interaction with your Budget DJ prior to the party. Most will accept some music requests on the night but will be working with a fairly limited music collection.

Many Budget DJs are part-time operators working to supplement other income. As such they are usually a good choice for low-cost venues such as pubs and village halls, and events such as 18th birthday parties and engagements.

A mid-range DJ will likely have a choice of equipment which will be selected to best suit your function and venue, and might offer some level of control over the lighting to keep it synchronised and befitting of the music style playing. They will usually offer a consultation in advance and be skilled enough to "hold the function together" on the night, continually thinking and planning ahead to make the event go smoothly. You can expect smart dress, good levels of presentation and confident microphone skills.

Many mid-range DJs are full-time businesses who can devote time to forward planning for your party in Penzance, as well as offering a range of add-on services. Lots of mid-priced DJs will be members of organisations such as DJmark giving you confidence in their service. This means they will hold Public Liability Insurance, have regularly safety tests undertaken on their electrical equipment ("PAT"), and will issue contracts for bookings. They will also be able to provide consistently good feedback from former clients.

A premium DJ is most likely to work with you in advance to plan all aspects of the event, from equipment and lighting needs through to music preferences, announcements, key timings and the structure of the party. They will be willing to work with other entertainment providers and the venue management to avoid any unnecessary "surprises". They possess the experience and skills to ensure meticulous planning and preparation befitting of their fee, and will be smartly presented on the day to suit your function.

The perfect choice for an important event such as a wedding reception or corporate gathering, premium DJs will be able to confidently lead your celebration. Generally run as full-time businesses, Premium DJs operating in the Penzance area are most likely to offer an impeccable feedback record and have attained DJmark Platinum or Diamond level - demonstrating their commitment to customer service.

Penzance DJ Booking Tips


For many, their choice of DJ for parties in Penzance will make a dramatic difference to the success of their event - in a lot of cases possibly one of the most important (and expensive) days of their lives. For others, where the music is just incidental, a basic service is often all they need.
The biggest deciding factor in ensuring the quality of the DJ service that you hire in Penzance is usually the budget. We urge you to consider this very carefully as an overall percentage of the cost of your event. Don't shop for a DJ in Calstock - Gunnislake purely on price, because many affordable yet experienced DJs will actively avoid clients that appear not to value the service and focus only on cost. Instead, shop around on the suitability, reputation and level of service being offered - then, once you have a shortlist of suitable DJs you can then review the pricing.

Online Reviews for mobile DJs in Penzance

BE WARY OF ONLINE REVIEWS

Many review platforms such as Facebook and Google accept "reviews" from ANYONE whether or not they've actually used the service - including the DJ, the DJ's partner, the DJ's friends, the DJ's dog...

needadisco.com reviews can only be submitted by clients that have used the service including people like you partying in Penzance. We do not accept random reviews. We also think that reviews can go out of date quite quickly, so we do not count reviews that are more than 3 years old to be sure that you're getting an up-to-date picture. Also, our Penzance discos are clearly ranked on specific criteria such as audio quality, lighting quality, presentation, music choices, request handling, microphone use, audience interaction and more, so that you can quickly compare local DJ services.

Communication is king

COMMUNICATION, COMMUNICATION, COMMUNICATION...

Be very clear about your expectations for the event and TALK to your potential DJ about them. Don't be afraid to walk away if you're not confident in his/her abilities to deliver.

Do you want a straightforward 'same-as-everyone-else' mobile disco or are you looking for something a little different? Are you looking for a Penzance DJ who can rapidly switch genres to suit the guests ... or would you prefer a club-style DJ with a predetermined set and excellent beatmatching skills? Would you be happy with a silent DJ or would you like someone with microphone skills and the right presence to confidently make announcements and keep your guests informed?
