I’m meeting with DJs this weekend and have appointments set up with two.
I’m looking for something under 1K. The two I’m looking at I really like, highly recommended on many boards but are 1K+. So I want to look at one more that’s under 1K.
Anyway, please don’t recommend the typical ones that are recommended. I have probably looked at them and either are meeting with them or they are out of budget. =)

If you’ll consider doing the ipod thing (you supply the music, but a dj will bring the equipment and spin things/mc), then I’d go with Color Blind. The only other recommendation is Dash of Class. Otherwise, try either Craigslist or keep your fingers crossed – this is one area where finding someone under $1k is almost (though not entirely) impossible and you may well get what you pay for.
Also, depending on how much time you need, you can try to haggle a bit. I am using more than 5 hours, so the price worked out for me. Don’t use the Pros, which is within your budget. Too many horror stories from many, many brides. GL.
