Description of service

I never realized how expensive renting a DJ could be. That is until now. The DJ was at the reception for 7 hours but had a couple 30 minute breaks, so in all he played for about 6 hours. That was about all the DJ'ing I could take, but it definitely made the wedding reception a better experience. I also tipped $250, so the price before tip was $1250. Although a bit pricey I would recommend the company to my friends for any special occasion.


Review of Service

DJ'ing sure is a lucrative business. That's quite an hourly fee at a little over $200/hour. I didn't shop around so maybe I got duped, but I really didn't spare any expense for my wedding so I was ok when the bill came. He took requests and did the typical wedding dances like Bride and father, bride and groom and even some fun dances to get the kids involved. He was very charismatic and made the night a blast.


Tips

Shop around before you make a decision, make sure the DJ has the type of music that you want played at your event. and be sure that they are right for the event. Otherwise you might just ruin your own wedding.
