Well my oldest son is graduating 8th grade this year, and of course you have to have the year end dance/party right! So I nominated myself in charge of the music/dj arrangements.

So my question is do i hire a DJ with the limited budget I'm given. OR get a couple of us parents to DJ it?

I and some friends have access to a sound board, speakers, fog machine, lights and all the getup.

ME: I'm thinkin just hire the DJ! Sometimes I don't care how "cool" you or the other parents are, sometimes its just better to have the outside source get the credit/blame...

Whats everyones opinions?

I say hire a GOOD DJ. I have been to parties where the DJ's interaction whith the guest made the party not just the music. He can make dance a dud or make it the best. Plus you will be glad you didn't go through the hassle of "working" your son's party and will be free to mingle and enjoy if he wants you there.

I would definitely farm it out, just to be on the safe side.

My son went to the 8th grade dance last year as a 7th grader. He requested some ac/dc back in black and the dj wouldn't play it.... He wasn't impressed at all with last years d.j.

Good to know im not alone in my thinkin... ya know how some parents get though. "O we can do this and it will be rockin". Yea but if its not, I'm not going down with THAT train. HA!

Thanks all
