Where can I find DJ for a 1 hour gig? Amateur or professional is A-OK!

Westminster…what part of CA is that in?  I have a great DJ in the bay area.  Are you close?

why not use the guitarist for dinner or cocktails (or the ceremony) then have the DJ for the whole “dancing” part of the reception.

 

at least then you will get your money worth since I think it might be hard to find someone for only 1 hr

I’d just go with the ipod at that point. Or as littlemisshostess said above me, switch your timing and do the guitarist for dinner and cocktails.

I agree with PPs, I think the guitar would be better enjoyed during dinner than for dancing.

I would look into independent DJs who aren’t associated with a company.  I’d ask your venues and photographer for recommendations (our photographer recommended our DJ to us).  Honestly, no one is going to accept the gig unless they are a student until the week before, because they would rather get hired all night.  

I think dinner, and cake cutting, etc would be more approriate for a guitarist.  No one is going to dance to a single guitarist (though it could be way romantic for dinner).  You might be best off with an Ipod.
