How much does a DJ cost? DJ Prices?

Our Pricing AND Our Competitors Pricing

Needless to say our industry is struggling through uncertain times, but rest assured: We guarantee that we will remain in business, your wedding date is safe with us. We are a small business that can adjust quickly, which makes our cost of doing business lower than most other DJ services in the area. Visit the link to our Covid-19 policy above and make an informed decision. At the moment, we are not charging deposits for any event in 2020 to give our new clients peace of mind.

We know searching and waiting for quotes from vendors can be tiresome, so we've done your homework for you when it comes to comparing prices. Below we've listed our prices and services compared with prices of some of the other leading DJ services in the area. Make the comparison and you will see our award winning, top-shelf service is the best for the value. We are not for everyone. We offer a unique, non-intrusive approach to entertainment for unique couples and unique events. A DJ can definitely make or break your reception, so please do your research. We are totally transparent about our pricing and have no issue posting it on our page. Simply click the "Book Now" button under the package you like to set up your account and reserve your date.**

Attention: Weddings that fall on Friday/Sunday and Winter Weddings!

If you would like to see if you can book the date at a cheaper rate with us, you may get a instant quote immediately by registering. We may be trying to book your particular date at a lower cost, up to 25% off, or awesome deals on uplighting depending on the date (especially weddings that fall on Fridays or Sundays, or winter weddings).

There may be many cheaper DJ's out there, but remember, you get what you pay for. Ask to hear a mix that the DJ has done, read reviews, and be informed. Is wedding entertainment their full-time profession? Music is our full-time job, and we've provided wedding entertainment for hundreds of events in our area. We have the knowledge and expertise to provide top shelf service many other DJ services do not have. Take a look at the following web page, it goes into detail about what you might get if you choose to go with the cheaper, unknown DJ found on Thumbtack or Craigslist: WeddingWire - DJ Horror Stories

A Warning About the Cheapest DJ

We know, you're on a budget and the affordable budget DJ is doing receptions for $300 to $500 dollars. The cheap/budget DJ lacks necessary equipment, experience, and resources to give you a guaranteed safe and smooth day. You are really taking a risk here. Why not pay a couple hundred more to hire an experienced DJ with all of the necessary equipment (and backups in case something fails) to make your day that much more stress free? Does he even know how to make a reception flow properly? Even if they have great reviews, at that price he cannot afford the necessary equipment or time to dedicate to your wedding. We know, because this is how we started out, and it was impossible. So please take this into consideration. In conclusion, if all you want is someone to play music, wouldn't it be cheaper and more reliable to just rent a sound system and hook up your iPod/phone? Think about it.

Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.
