We paid $ 300 for 5 hours… so that works out to $ 60 per hour (how many hours do you figure you’ll get for $ 800 ?)

Now our guy wasn’t fancy (which is why he wasn’t terribly expensive)… but he was more than adequte for our Party Evening with Friends & Faimly at our Back Home Reception.

The only extras he brought along was a bit of a light show, that he projected onto an otherwise boring wall at the venue.

Hope this helps,

Ours is about 1400 but that’s for 2 guys who DJ and MC.   We have an L shaped hall, so they need to have a set up that works for both areas, and the ceremony is outside on the water (next to some low falls, so the water is kinda loud and we need mics and speakers).   The base price was 750, the package upgrade we got was about 1000 and that’s for fun lighting and videoclips during the dancing, and montage of our pictures.   I think it’s an extra 250 for the ceremony set up, and a bit more for the double set up in the hall for our funny shaped room.

$1000 and only because I was friends with the owners step daughter in HS. Usually he charges $1600 and that’s usually what they charge in my area.

$734 all taxes in. That includes setup from 4pm, prelude, ceremony music, cocktail music, dinner music, dancing music, and tear down just after 1 am. He’s also going to be our MC, and he’s renting us mics for the ceremony (included in price) too.

$300.

But, it’s a client of mine .

I figured it’s best to cost with someone I know I like, vs. some random person whom I don’t know!

@MsPiggy:  We are spending about $450-500 for our DJ for 4-5 hours but it was also included with our venue/reception package. I think the cost probably also depends on what part of the country you are living in too. 🙂

300 but I got $100 off because I was recommended to him by a good friend of both mine and his. However, this is only for 4 hours.. We are not using a DJ at the ceremony or cocktail hour (we are doing a harpist during these).. He is just doing our reception from 6-10. IF he HAD done our ceremony it would have been $100 for the ceremony and another $100 for cocktail hour.
