Sounds good to me, especially if that price does include lighting. If not, it still sounds like a good price if you like & trust him. You can go in for the meeting to see how you feel either way.

I guess it depends on where you live. We’re in the south in a decent sized city and our DJ is $300. A friend of mine was married in a larger city and hers was $600.

WOW- all I have to say is my fiancee is a DJ and four 4 years in a row we have Djd the first national bank christmas party. We usually set up about 3 come back at 6 and stay until 1 AM. This is a party for 250+ people. Usually they dont even bother to feed us. All this fun and excitement earns us 350.00……………….

Did I mention we also have to drive over an hour round trip and book a hotel to do this..

Boy are we getting UNDERPAID- I keep trying to explain this to my fiancee but he LOVES being a DJ and he does it dirt cheap with lights. LOL  He has been doing this for over 20 years as well

We are doing another wedding in March for 150 for the night because it for a coworkers niece.

The bank was MAD when they realized this past December that we are getting married this year on the day of their party and they have to find another DJ.

A final note- my fiancees best friend who was supposed to be our DJ died unexpectedly this month  and now we have to find a DJ because I REFUSE to let him  (my guy)DJ our wedding

To give you a reference point, my DJ and lighting is running me $2,545. I think you’re getting an AWESOME deal if this guy is good with music and professional lighting.

Sounds like a good deal to me. Good DJs here run around $900-1200 without any extras. They also generally charge for travel time.

We got married in Philly and our Dj, who was beyond awesome, with a ton of uplighting and dance lighting, who provided music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception (3 seperate sound system set-ups)was $1300. So if the $900 includes the uplighting and dancefloor lighting, that’s a pretty good deal. Otherwise, not so much.

@PonytailKim:  For where we are that is low! I got a GREAT deal on my DJ because we are booking him through the venue and are being charged 1500 and can add lighting for an additional 100-300.
