Hi there!He was a HUGE wild card for me. I read one knottie that had used him. It really came down to me not wanting to mess with an iPod and that he was only $200 for the entire evening. I had very low expectations. I thought he was going to show up with a laptop and some speakers! He had a full dj set up. You should be able to see him a bit in my pro pics that I posted. If not, I just got a bunch of candids this morning and there is a better view. I will say that I did NOT use him for announcing, etc. Some professional DJs are very into playing the wedding DJ role - talking, etc...I didnt want that and he is not that kind of dj. I gave him the playlist I wanted to start the night with and than gave him the genre of music we liked and music that we did NOT want played. The music was perfect. Calvin (his real name) - has a regular day job I believe so he is not the quickest to reply to emails. I dont think there are many DJs out there that they charge $200 for the night. If you are hosting your reception insuite make sure you give him enough time to set up, check his volume, sound etc.. It took the bellhops awhile to get his gear to the suite.
Hmmm, sounds like he is changing things up a bit. It wasnt 4 hours. But I see that his craigslist ad now says $200 for 4 hours. and $35 each additional hour. I would see if you can negotiate. He must be realizing that he is too cheap!
