TIPS FOR CHOOSING A DJ
Rates for the DJ industry vary greatly, ranging from $350.00 to $3,500.00 with an average of $1,200.00 for a 4 hour booking.
A full-service disc jockey company will normally invest 12 to 30 hours to your special event but it may appear that you are only paying for "4 hours". Consultations, preparation, transportation, set-up and tear-down, and other business related endeavors add up to the overall success of your special occasion.
Many Brides and Grooms ask about price 1st because they’ve never hired a DJ before and they’re not sure what to base their decision on. An important thing to know is that a DJ is not a commodity, there is a big difference in the quality between different DJs.
If you’re checking around, you’re going to hear a lot of different rates, some probably more than ours and some for less, let me ask you this, who makes or breaks your party? Your DJ should be someone you TRUST, and there is a reason our company is called Trustworthy Music!
