Can you bargain the price down at all so it’s more within your range? I hate those “required” things. Ugh. What are your other options?

I totally feel your frustration! We’re just hiring a DJ but the hotel adds over 20% ‘service fee’ if we book through them. However if we book directly, they charge an obnoxious additional ‘facility fee’ so we’re screwed either way. They claim its to cover things like electricity, but $500? I hope you’re able to get your first choice…

That stinks!  So its the music that suggested by the venue that you have to use?  Thats really shady that they get 15% of the commission, I really dont like when venues do this. At least you know you like the band, but for other people it appears they only make you contract with people they want that they get money from and not even necessarily do a good job.  I hope everything works out for you!!!
