Is there a time when this topic get resolved? I mean when we can agree when it comes to prices. It won't happen because there are different levels of DJs. There are those who are just starting out, those who have been doing this a little while and those who have been doing this for 10 years or longer. Also different levels of equipment used by DJs. Those starting out usually will have starter equipment. Equipment that others wouldn't even consider buying or using to DJ with. That's because of years of experience that they learned why not to buy certain things. That's because they know they will not be happy and quickly want to get rid of it. Then others have more to offer then somebody else. What level of DJ do you feel you are? Also for me it's about what you can command for your prices. What someone else does is what they do. Not saying we all can't learn from some other DJ. We can but 2 big things I learned. First I learned to get my own style. I learned how to DJ from hanging out at Club Zanzibar. I used to buy the same records they played and do the same mixes they did. Eventually when I became comfortable with how to mix I developed my own style. 2nd I learned to be comfortable with what I do. I have no problem with telling a potential client I'm not the right DJ to do their event. I get beat up because I don't do certain events with certain styles of music. It's not me and I'm good with it.
