    Hi Michelle86,

    I have recently read another thread on this very same issue. The consensus was, you do not tip people who have their own business (i.e. if their business is their name, like Rachel Ricardo photography and if they are the only ones working for this business). It sounds like you will need to tip this DJ since he is working for a company who has many other DJs available to be ‘loaned’ out for parties. I would decide on giving him the bigger tip only if after the reception he totally rocked the house and you are satisfied with his performance. If not, I would give him the small tip.

    $100 is a huge tip for 5 hours work, imo. I’m still trying to figure the logistics of tipping out myself, but I feel like these people actually get paid by their employers, right?? I have a really good job as a scientist, and a $100 tip for 5 hours work would still be another 50% of my income….

    I read that you should tip 15-20% with a cap of $100 per person.  So I would limit it to $100 not because of the discount but because $100 is PLENTY!!
