$3,000…full out package with 2 dj’s, italian speaking mc, 4 tv’s and light show, favors….he’s a big DJ in westchester…you get what you pay for in my opinion…

we’re really into dance music and he’s the best around!


Music and food are very important to us…and also take into account the NY metro area being pricey…

We are paying $450 for 6 hours and our event is outside so the the dance floor lights will be perfect. We found him on gigmasters.com

$1075 for 5 hours in DC. I never thought of a DJ as super important (I mean, how different are they?), then I went to my FI’s Christmas party. The first year was awesome. Everyone danced all night. The next year had a new DJ and no one danced. He couldn’t get us going. So we drank instead. Instead of everyone raving about how fun it was, they complained about massive hangovers. Similarly, the only feedback I heard about a family wedding last year was how horrible the DJ was. As a result, DJ is really important to us.

We paid $1000 for a very well-reviewed DJ (on wedding wire), plus I think about $500 for a string trio who played during the ceremony.

That’s a fantastic deal, OP.

We paid $1k for 6 hours and that didn’t include much of anything beyond the normal DJ stuff.

Our DJ is $1875 but we’re getting the uplighting, 7 hours (ceremony and reception) of music, and a photo booth with some fun props.
