I say it doesn't matter what the clients budget is. The thing is will they agree to the price I quote them? I'm in control when it comes to such a thing. Either there's room to negotiate or they can keep looking.

Alright, the verdict is in!

I got a notification of the performer that they booked on The Bash. I won't say who the performer is, but I will say that I have met this KJ before. I saw him in a bar about 12 years ago at a bar that I know pay's $150 a night for the KJ at the time. Anyway, I am surprised he is still actually performing. I think he is in his late 60s, maybe even 70 yrs old. He also reminds me of MIX! (Appearance wise)

He quoted the client $400 which was their budget, and he got the job for $400 which is actually $380 after the $20 fee the bash takes on the booking. So in 2022, there are still DJs in my area that will book a 4 hour Saturday night private event with over 100 guests for $400 ($380) in Baltimore City.
Yes there are and there always will be, there is zero need to bring this stuff up just think what you could have accomplished with the time you spent on this

Consider that big money. I went down to Maryland to supply lighting for a college black light party. After the party‘s over I go over to talk to the DJ. He spun for 4 hrs and did a good job. I asked him how well did the college pay DJs. He responded he doesn’t get paid, it’s the school speakers. Well there you go. He worked for 4 hrs got nothing then has to pay a Fortune for tuition. I DJed in college too and got paid for each & every party/event I did. The only time I didn’t get paid was our very first college party we organized and promoted ourself.
