FAQ

Pricing Questions

  1. How Do You Set Your Rates?

    This is one of the most discussed issues among DJs in the industry.  First, I must explain that when you hire a DJ, he does not just work the 4 hours he was booked.  Many hours are required to build the play list, acquire new music or requests, and run a business.  For a typical 4 hour show, the DJ may actually work 8-12 hours, and if its a wedding, can be more than 16 hours of preparation. 

    Equipment cost is another aspect to the DJ's rates.  Speakers, amplifiers, cables, lights, poles, tables, and more factor into the overhead a DJ must account in his rates in order for his business to make a profit. 

    Currently, Circle Of Life Productions Entertainment brings $3,200 worth of audio equipment, $2,000 worth of lights, and over $10,000 worth of music to each show.
