The inspiration for Episode 8 of The Mike Bills Podcast actually came at the expense of a recent inquiry for sort of a "last minute" wedding DJ booking. During the course of this inquiry, it became apparent that the bride and her mother had contacted another wedding DJ besides myself. While it's encouraged for all brides and grooms to shop around, it became quickly obvious that this prospective client had already begun talking to a DJ who was over HALF of the cost of my services. When speaking to the bride over the phone, she mentioned the cost of the other DJ and that the ceremony music would cost them $50.00 extra. Who are these DJs that think that charging $50.00 for ceremony music is acceptable, and more importantly "professional"? Hearing these stories can be discouraging, not only for me as a business owner who provide a higher end service, but curiosity began to kill me as thoughts came over me as to how a wedding DJ could pull this off? Were they playing music off their phone and holding it up without any PA? According to the bride, there were going to be 100 people there. As one of the top Charleston Wedding DJs, I could continue to speculate how ceremony music can be done for $50.00, or head into the production studio and record another podcast and tell you how it's REALLY supposed to be done. Episode 8 is online now and available at Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and IHeart Radio. It's quickly become the perfect companion for engaged brides and grooms looking for a wedding DJ.
