Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you charge?
Pricing is displayed on this website for each event (weddings, private parties, etc.). Prices vary depending on the event, the package selected, add-ons selected, number of hours, etc.
What is peak season when wedding DJ pricing is concerned?
Peak season or wedding season is the time of the year when weddings are most frequent. This usually occur from late spring to early fall. Wedding DJ peak season pricing is applied for events that fall between the months of May-October on Saturdays only. Booking on every other day other than the Saturdays between May-October will be charged at regular pricing.
Can I manually add features to a wedding package without upgrading the package?
Of course! You may add a feature to a wedding package if the package doesn’t include it without having to upgrade a package. For example, if you order the Silver Package but you only want two 50″ TVs for slideshows without the monogram lighting and extra uplights that is in the Platinum Package, you may do so. Pricing can be adjusted to meet your needs.
