Our commitment to quality
We are not called Only DJs Melbourne because we are the ONLY choice for quality DJ hire in Melbourne. We are called Only DJs Melbourne because we only DJ for a living. James has committed over half his life to constantly improving his mixing skills to be the best DJ he can be and to pass this knowledge on to the entire team.
James is the Only DJ in Melbourne to have completed an MBA (Masters of business administration) and applied all the learnings to Only DJ’s. We are focusing on excellence and consistent quality, in an inconsistent industry. James’s commitment to DJ-ing means no matter what, you will have a fantastic experience.
We also pride ourselves on having great cable management, we understand that cords everywhere for an event is very unsightly so that’s why we ensure our DJ’s always keep their consoles as clean as possible.
At the age of 13, I attended a number of family weddings, I saw that the DJ’s were always frantically trying to find the next song to play. Under those circumstances, they would occasionally disappoint someone when they didn’t have their song request.
We saw a problem that we could provide an innovative and new DJ service. We had a vision that we could have thousands of songs available at the click of a button and bring this innovation to event hosts. Since 2008 we have offered a unique DJ service with onsite downloading of any song you might need. We have a large collection of music to suit any function and in most cases, we have the songs requested.
Our first event
Our first ever function was 29th of March 2003 for a 16th birthday party, since then we have performed at over 1000 different events. After our very first event, we marched up to Allen’s music which was located off Cotham Road in Kew, purchased speakers and an amplifier and carried them one by one all the way home at the very end of Derby Street. Our speakers and setups have changed over the years but our commitment to quality DJ hire hasn’t.
Our commitment to fair pay for DJ’s
We pride ourselves on going against industry standards, firms that own all their equipment pay their DJs minuscule amounts for their DJ performance, being paid as little as $200-250 dollars per performance. We pay our DJ’s up to 80% of the booking total because we know that their commitment and dedication to your event makes them the best in the industry.
The future and how we are innovating the industry
We are still endeavouring to pioneer the DJ industry and we are the ONLY DJ firm in Melbourne that offers live tracking on the day of your event. Please click here for more information.
