Average DJ prices

Hey ladies...I have a friend of the family who is a DJ and he said he would give us a "deal" and charge 750 for 5 hours... is that a deal?


I have heard everything from 500 to 2000 for DJs around here...what are you guys paying and do you have any reccomendations?


Thanks!

That depends on if he's going to serve as a "wedding" dj or just play music.  Our wedding dj is costing us around $1500 but he is doing both the ceremony music and the 5-hour reception and also cueing the events taking place during the ceremony, etc.  This also includes uplighting for the venue.  If it's just music he's doing then $750 is about right.

Sounds about right.


Our DJ is $675 for 4 hours but he is also bringing an assistant and is doing the MCing as well.

We had a family friend dj and mc for 8 hours plus for $500.  It all depends though what type of equipment and what services they are providing, lighting, mic, etc.  as well

I think Its AVG price for just DJ.  Some were charging up to $1500.00


LynLyn =( I couldn't get steve.  He was booked already.  But he recommended this other DJ Jack. Hes charging around $750.00 for 4 hours. He does MC/DJ by himself. Hopely hes as good as Steve.

@Lovey - I'm sorry to hear you didn't get Steve :( But I am sure anybody Steven recommends should be great as well :)

If you don't get DJ Jack, check out Allan Layton.  He's our dj and gets fantastic reviews on pw.  He was super professional when we met and has a great dj voice.  He's $995 for 5 hours.
