That depends on what you’re hiring. Is that for a band? A DJ? A string quartet? A duo? A solo pianist? etc.

I’m in northern NJ and I got quoted similar for my DJ (just under 2k) for 4 hour reception.  This includes intelligent lighting, a DJ stand.. but nothing fancy like gobo machines or smoke machines, etc.  For the cocktail hour and ceremony, my man and I are having a string trio for $750.  I think both are bargains, really!

If you’re going with a band, I would expect at least double the price of a DJ.

I’ve been seeing a lot of $1000-1500 for DJ’s.
