Yes! Each year Cam does between 28-35 weddings and 30-40 non-weddings. Too often, DJs place too many events on their schedule and place greater emphasis on quantity over quality – DJ Cam doesn’t believe in that. When broken down, the time DJ Cam puts in per 5-hour wedding (including calls, preparation, and executing the event) equates to around 27 hours.
Some factors that may increase the price for your event include:
- Event date (popularity)
- Multiple equipment setups
DJ Cam’s pricing is this: first and foremost, you are paying for the talent, which comes with the equipment required to make your event vision happen (if local). Additional services or extras that are beyond what is normally provided will affect the price. Most of the time, if services are added, it may require an additional person to help with set up, which is factored into pricing.
- Deposit + signed contract
- For most events: a $750 Booking Fee, with the remaining balance due 3 weeks before the event
- If the event is outside of the state of Utah, the booking fee will be half of the total event price
An emcee is a crucial part of an event and its success. DJ Cam is known for “light emceeing” – he sticks to a direct and simple style. Examples include “Guests, it is now time to direct your attention to the stage!” or “It is my pleasure to introduce your speaker, John Smith!”
“My personal view is I would rather just be a DJ that directs the night with the music and the ocassional announcement with a little floor hype. If I didn’t have to touch or speak into a mic I would be happy with that 😀 .
Having said this, I have no problems with making announcements that are information-based and direct to keep the evening running smoothly.” -DJ Cam
I think requests are a good way of getting those hidden bangers – However my process for most private events and weddings allows for you to get most if not all the requests taken care of before the event.
Depending on the vibes and each clients expectations I will or will not take requests at the event.
Each event is different and music is always tailored to the client’s desired atmosphere, vibes, and expectations for the event. Many clients give a suggested list of music in addition to a smaller “must-play” list. Tailoring the event to you is the most important aspect of what DJ Cam does. After all, music is obviously important to you – why else would you be on the hunt for a DJ?
DJ Cam’s style includes playing my re-drums, mashups, and original tracks, from the newest beats to the older classics. During an event, DJ Cam will challenge the status quo and take the audience on a journey through quick hits covering all genres through all eras.
“Currently, I’m in love with house music vibes. 2010’s to current tech house.” -DJ Cam
Did you know? There are over 60,000 songs uploaded daily on Spotify!?
DJ Cam’s Mixcloud has mixes from past events along with some studio mix sessions. Many have been performed live and are tailored to each client. You can also find Raw footage from past events on his Portfolio Page.
DJ Cam’s default is to play clean edits, but explicit versions will be used upon request. If they are requested, they will not be played in public spaces.
For local events, my base price includes:
- Date reservation –
- Custom DJ booth setup (Unless there are stairs.)
- Arrival at least 3 hours prior to guests
- Professional attire for the occasion
- Sound System
- Liability insurance
Great question! We may be a little biased because we are a DJ company first; however, a fusion of DJ + Sax + Drummer can create a ton of value and provide the live performance aspect that you are looking for. Be sure to check out our blog post about this exact question!
Yes! DJ Cam first charges a talent fee for him to take on the event. Then you will be charged the hard costs for production, flights, and other expenses.
This is one of the amazing things about DJ Cam’s process. Let’s face it – you are busy and probably have ten other vendors to work with. I’ve created a guide that accompanies my online forms which will help you stay organized and know what information you need to get to me. Then, we will work out the exact event details 14-16 days out from your event.
“Not every event is for me. I’m not here to dj 5 events in a week, week after week.
If someone is bragging about doing 5 weddings in a week, 5 weeks in a row, and has a full-time job on top of the DJing, I suggest you RUN. They probably aren’t going to give you the attention your event needs or deserves.” – DJ Cam Reeve
Yes. DJ Cam can plug into the house video system or we provide TVs.
DJ Cam would love to work with your musicians and bands to provide the appropriate microphones and monitors they need. There is an additional cost if monitors or specific microphones are requested.
‘I mainly serve Utah and the Deer Valley Market. I Travel to Zions National Park, Jackson Wyoming, Page Arizona, and Boise Idaho often. I’ve been to NY, Florida, and California and service most the the US States. One of my favorite places I’ve DJ’d is on a Cruise Ship headed to the Bahamas. I am excited to one day DJ In Hawaii, NYC, and Paris at some point.’
DJ Cam is passionate about working with people who are doing good in the community. DJ Cam is trusted and paid by many organizations that host fundraisers from year to year and loves partnering with them to make their events profitable. DJ Cam loves working at fundraisers, including galas, concerts, silent auctions, and dances.
Like any company, we are a for-profit business with hard costs required to make things happen. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for your next event, but keep in mind that DJ Cam does not provide free staging, lighting, sound, or DJ services. The most profitable fundraiser and non-profits we work with find value in impressing their donors with an entertainment experience worth spending money on.
Yes! This is a question DJ Cam gets often. While he can only be in one place at a time, he has created a network of DJs he works with. They aren’t hired just because they are available, and they aren’t referred just to get them work. DJ Cam talks about what is important to you, what your music tastes are, and what your dance floor looks like before sending you to a DJ that fits what’s important to you. Because weddings are so unique, DJ Cam will usually refer you to someone he trusts and let you work out the details with them directly. For corporate events, high schools, or college events, he has trusted pros in his network who have strengths in each area.
Yes! DJ Cam and his parent company Reeverb Entertainment LLC have worked with multiple exclusive artists and DJs for private gatherings, corporate events, and weddings. Whether you are traveling to Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Nevada, or other venues in Park City or the surrounding areas, quality equipment will be waiting for you. DJ Cam’s DJ equipment is rider-friendly and includes brands like Pioneer DJ, Rane, QSC, Electro-Voice, DB Technology, RCF, LD, Chauvet, ADJ, Astera, and Martin.
This is a great question. ‘I have clients who I sign NDA’s for. I have companies that have me ‘White Label.’ I have clients that ask me not to take video or post anything from the event. When requested I will respect that agreement.
I am a DJ first at your event so videos are usually a small snip it from a phone being pulled out for a second or I have a 360 Camera I just set up behind the booth and sound gear and it is just turned on. It does not require me to operate it. As you’re looking at these videos note a few things: It’s usually raw footage as I’m focused on what you hired me for. Clients, photographers, and videographers usually send me footage months after the events and that is where I get about half of the content I post from events. I will always follow non-disclosure agreements and If you do not want me to take video or photos, just let me know.
This is a great question. ‘I do not speak any other language. However I work with clients from all over the world and because of the process I’ve created it makes it easy to add multi cultural Music into my Mixes.’
