Well it depends on a couple of things, how long is he DJ-ing and how much can you afford?

Our dj is my Fiance friend and he said the same thing. We are giving him $500 cash and paying for his toll and parking and we STILL made him sign a contract…ok ok I emailed him one at least! He’s DJ ing 530-11pm

I’m paying $650 for my DJ for 6 hours and that’s the cheapest in our area (central Illinois).  If I were you, I would decided on how much you want to pay him per hour (I’d probably say somewhere around $30, but i really don’t know).  Is he bringing his own equiptment?  That’s going to take time and a lot of work to set up.  I would keep that in mind and try to calculate how much time he’ll be DJ-ing then how much time for him to tear down. It sounds like he will be happy with anything, so I’d give what you can without streatching your budget too much.
