They are perhaps new to the website and are awaiting positive feedback to enable them to move up to Gold level.

There's no obligation to book - simply provide the basics about your event and our members will be in touch with detailed proposals. Simple!
Firstly, a disclaimer. There are LOTS of mobile DJs and entertainment companies out there, mostly run by individuals - some as a part-time extension of their hobby and others as a full-time professional business. There are endless debates about pricing on DJ forums and Facebook groups, with some DJs happy to work for under £150 a night and others that "wouldn't load the van" for less than £600 for the same event. So there is a much wider range of pricing (and service level) than in many other industries, for example plumbers.
However, many people have never booked a DJ before and have no idea when it comes to how much they should budget. So what we've done is look at the details for literally hundreds of weddings that have taken place in and around the Harpenden area to come up with some guideline pricing showing typical rates for common types of event. We update these price ranges on a regular basis to reflect current trends.
The only sure way to get accurate prices is to request FREE DJ quotes for your Harpenden party or event.

For many, their choice of wedding DJ will make a dramatic difference to the success of their day. The evening disco is the lasting impression of your celebration long after the dress and cake are forgotten. For some, where the music is just incidental, a basic service is often all they need.
The biggest deciding factor in ensuring the quality of the wedding DJ service that you hire in Harpenden is usually the budget. We urge you to consider this very carefully as an overall percentage of the cost of your event. Don't shop for a DJ in Harpenden purely on price, because many affordable yet experienced DJs will actively avoid clients that appear not to value the service and focus only on cost. Instead, shop around on the suitability, reputation and level of service being offered - then, once you have a shortlist of suitable DJs you can then review the pricing.
Here at needadisco.com we've done much of the legwork for you by pre-vetting all of the Harpenden disco companies featured here and ranking them for you. Complete our simple enquiry form and we'll arrange for all of our members that cover your venue and who are available to send you quotes FREE OF CHARGE and without obligation.
Many review platforms such as Facebook and Google accept "reviews" from ANYONE whether or not they've actually used the service - including the DJ, the DJ's partner, the DJ's friends, the DJ's dog...
needadisco.com reviews can only be submitted by clients that have used the service including people like you partying in Harpenden. We do not accept random reviews. We also think that reviews can go out of date quite quickly, so we do not count reviews that are more than 3 years old to be sure that you're getting an up-to-date picture. Also, our Harpenden discos are clearly ranked on specific criteria such as audio quality, lighting quality, presentation, music choices, request handling, microphone use, audience interaction and more, so that you can quickly compare local DJ services.
