One thing that really gets me, is losing a client to a D.J.. Don’t get me wrong. Our company created D.J.’s in Chicago. There was no such animal. When we went to advertise, there was no category for us. The whole reason we started down that road, was to accommodate the client that didn’t have the budget for Live Music. How times have changed. Obviously, the economical reason to use a D.J. instead of a great band still exists. However, it’s the client (usually in their 20’s) who tells me that they have decided to go with a D.J., not because of budget, but because their friends tell them “Don’t get a Band! A D.J. is SO MUCH better!”, that makes me sigh with sincere disappointment.
It wasn’t until recently, that it dawned on me: We have never performed at a bad party. Our party’s are FABULOUS. Have these friends, whose opinion’s are so important to my client’s, ever been to a GREAT party? In fact, if you are in your 20’s, how many parties have you been to? Have you been to thousands? Because, I have. I am willing to bet that my client’s friends have been to two or three weddings, at the most. & of those two or three, how many had Live Music? Maybe one. Maybe. This is not a wise & experienced advisor.
I love what I do. I am so proud of the job we do, from the first contact with prospective clients, to the cries of “Encore” & “One more!!” at the end of another GREAT party. Our office staff is expert, pleasant & helpful, our musicians are the best, our Vocalists world class. We give you our all. & we promise you a GREAT party.
