Just in the planning stage?
If you are just in the planning stage and just want to know how much DJ’s cost we can certainly give you an idea. The first thing you should know is that every DJ is different, and depending on experience, equipment, personality, and entertainment value you can very quickly win or lose with your choice of DJ. At Retro DJ to Go, we strive to create an event that is a culmination of the clients vision and our expertise. Prices are based on the event type, number of guests, lighting choices, and extras which can include anything from music video to karaoke. All of these affect the overall price of your DJ. Be wary of venues that provide their own DJ’s as they are typically unable to provide the full experience as they have limited equipment and are stuck in the venue’s workflows. These DJ’s are never about the client they are only an extra for the venue which makes enough money as it is. To give you an idea you can expect to pay anywhere from $500-$1000+ for a DJ depending on your event. You shouldn’t expect much for someone offering to do an event for less than $500. These are the low end DJ’s are looking to make a fast buck and probably don’t have the experience to handle your event. Remember that a truly professional DJ service will have expenses like storage, storefronts, a website, and pro equipment that make doing events for less than $500 uneconomical. If you’re looking for some ideas of what a professional DJ can provide check out some of the options below.
