We’re allowing the bartender to have his tip jar out, I know our venue had 18% gratuity rolled in but I’m sure he banks on making some money on top of that. Our guests are definitely a drinking bunch so id hate for him to be working hard all night and not make his extra money

If you are paying a gratuity, there is no need for anything additional, and there should not be a tip jar.   Many venues include gratituties, so you should not be embarrassed.  I used to work at a country club and most of were thrilled to work outside “events” because it not only generally put us in overtime for the week, but we also had guaranteed gratuties. 

As to the DJ, not so certain.  Unfortunately the time to ask these questions is BEFORE you sign contract, afterwards, of course they will want more money.
