Not really sure in which category to post, soo I’m gonna post in both music and money…what would you guys say is a “reasonable,average” rate to be quoted for a 5 hr reception? We were just quoted $1850 does that sound about right? Too high? Too low? Let me know!!i am clueless about this stuff! Thank you very much 🙂

That depends on what you’re hiring. Is that for a band? A DJ? A string quartet? A duo? A solo pianist? etc.

I’m in northern NJ and I got quoted similar for my DJ (just under 2k) for 4 hour reception. This includes intelligent lighting, a DJ stand.. but nothing fancy like gobo machines or smoke machines, etc. For the cocktail hour and ceremony, my man and I are having a string trio for $750. I think both are bargains, really!
If you’re going with a band, I would expect at least double the price of a DJ.

I’ve been seeing a lot of $1000-1500 for DJ’s.
