Does anyone have recommendations for a good DJ in the DC area? We are looking for someone who will take on the MC role and play a variety of music through the night. We love top 40, but we will need a lot of oldies and variety for the older guests. Any recommendations (and a price estimate) would be appreciated!

We’re using MusicMasters. I thinkt he price is $1,060 or something close to that, just over a grand. Another major company in the area is Absolute Entertainment, but they were closer to $2k so we decided against them.

We are using Entertainment Exchage, they have two levels of pricing. Our package which includes an extra hour of ceremony time is about $1400 but there is a less expensive option where you don’t know who your assigned DJ is till closer to the ceremony (basically they assign you whoever isn’t already scheduled another event). So far they have been great– very responsive, asked a lot of really insightful questions, and provided a bunch of forms for us to tell them what we want to happen at every stage of the event. I can’t speak to the actual execution since our wedding hasn’t happened yet but I was referred to them by a friend who uses them regularly for events she organizes for her work, and she has only really good things to say about them.

I used Mike Bell from mydeejay – pricing is here: http://www.mydeejay.com/our-pricing. He was awesome, played a perfect assortment of music, seamless transitions from the ceremony-cocktail hour-dinner-reception, as well as MC.

We’re using Larry Grenier: http://www.grenierdj.com/
His pricing seemed really reasonable to me and his reviews on weddingwire are all fantastic. http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/grenier-sons-dj-service-manassas/366fcbf4609fce9b.html
Can’t vouch for him at the wedding yet, but he was great on the phone talking about what he does and gave us a bunch of really organized and helpful forms to fill out for him.

@Pollywog: Unique Dreams DJs are wonderful, we’re having DJ Brian for our June 16 wedding, and we had a meeting with him recently to show him the space and nail down timeline. He has a ton of energy without being over the top or in your face, I feel like we’re in great hands – and their prices are great! They go on word of mouth pretty much, and we heard about them from another couple.
