mrs. butterfly spent $1350 on her DJ in NYC back in 2007. your wedding isn’t going to be in NYC, so the cost would probably be lower, on the other hand that was a few years ago, so $1400 sounds fair (but of course NYC prices are so skewed so take what i say with a grain of salt). *but* i don’t think it’s necessarily the best price you can get.  you could probably find an up and coming dj who’s really good and isn’t charging as much right now.

by the way i love bear mountain. i was just there a few weeks ago! what a beautiful area for a wedding!

Our DJ who is very popular right now in NYC starts at 1,600.

Are you thinking about hiring from NYC? if so, to bear mountain you will likely pay a travel fee.

I would suggest looking closer to Bear Mountain.

I looked at MANY DJs in the NYC/LI region and most of them ranged from 1400-2,000for basic. Just DJing.

Depending on your setup (ceremony, cocktail, reception) the price can go up.

I think if you look hard enough you can probably find one for under 1k.

@eseds:

Have you checked out FM Entertainment? They are based in Long Island. I never met with them but have heard good things. For 2010 they started at $900 for a base package.

We paid about $2,200 in the NYC area for our DJ and we didnt have anything too fancy.  So I’d say $1,400 is very reasonable!
