    Hey guys, I've been thinking about creating some sort of custom spotify jukebox to lease to parties. People in my area pay $100's for a DJ to simply just play as few songs whereas I'd be able to lease them out this 'machine' with a pair of professorial speakers for a fraction of the cost. So what do you guys think? Would people prefer to have a DJ or would they opt for this?

    The DJ adds life to the party and is there not only to play from a playlist but to play songs requested on the night there is much more to it than that. I don't see this working out.

    If would only work if it was some sort of app, that you could promote as a "ipod dj" thing. People just download the app, plug their phone into their speakers, job done.

    It won't replace dj's but there would be a market for it with some promotion.

    Create/find a portable jukebox/karaoke machine that would have lights and smoke, lasers the whole deal that has access to the internet. Then rent it to them and offer to upload "X" number of the songs they want for free. Offer them a credits package for extra songs, something like 200 songs for $50 or set a time on it, 3 hours for $50 and then they would have to pay .25 cents a song after that.

    Or...

    Keep the DJ in the mix and become the middle man. Contact all the businesses that deal with weddings being planned and see if they will carry your flyers or give you contact information for the soon to be wed. Step 2 would be to talk with a bunch of DJ's offering to bring them business for a cut.

    That's just the two ways I could see it working.

    There is a market that's for sure. But how you promote it will make the difference.

    A raw idea would be to market around music style that people are seeking for. Some music styles may fit better with a DJ rather than others.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I like the idea of spotify and to me it makes sense. Not everyone can afford that Dj and if they can get your equipment for cheaper, then they may be willing to go with it.

    No, when i go to parties the DJ gives it a certain feel. Your best bet is finding someone who cant afford a DJ.

    Can't people actually just use spotify for their party?
