Disc Jockey rates can vary based on talent, experience, emcee ability, service, coordination, equipment needed, music knowledge, and mixing ability. Rates for DJ services vary greatly, ranging from $1,000.00 to $3,500.00 with an average of $1,500.00 for a 4-hour booking. The best price is not always the best deal, especially if you are planning a wedding. Surveys suggest that nearly 100% of couples would have spent more money on their wedding entertainment in hindsight.
A professional, full-service DJ company will normally invest 12 to 30 hours into your special event. Consultations, music purchasing and editing, preparation, set-up and tear-down add to overall success of your special occasion.
Absolutely! Mike’s Music carries liability insurance, and workers compensation to protect our business and you, the consumer. Many locations require proof of liability. We can supply a Certificate of Insurance upon request.
It is extremely important to have your booking confirmed in writing. We require a contract agreement for every event that we do. Our contract agreement protects you as well as Mike’s Music. We offer the convenience of e-sign contracts, which allows you to secure our services even sooner than before, without the need to mail or scan and PDF back to us.
Definitely. Our wedding and event DJs will listen to your suggestions, give you feedback, and play from your desired song lists. As seasoned professionals, our DJs can read a crowd and understand that you may not want certain songs played. If you can’t come up with songs for your special event, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered to keep the dance floor filled!
We also offer an online planning system, where you can listen to songs and create a custom playlist for us to follow at your wedding or event. When it comes to music and entertainment, we have all the tools and experience to make your event a success!
At Mike’s Music, we only use professional equipment. Everything, from our sound systems to our event up-lighting, games, and photo booths, is high quality and leading-edge. A complete list of our equipment can be given upon request.
Although equipment failure is rare, our event staff always come prepared. It is also important to know if your Disc Jockey has a back-up plan in case of illness or an accident. Mike’s Music provides backup equipment on-site and has a professional DJ on-call for every event. We believe that booking a reliable company is a very important decision for the success of your party. Selecting us will provide you with the confidence and peace of mind that you have made the right decision. We manage the details, so you don’t have to.
At Mike’s Music all our Disc Jockeys will assist you with the planning of your special day. Whether you need a DJ for your wedding, corporate party, or university event, our professional Disc Jockeys will coordinate, emcee, and provide the appropriate music that you desire. We attend conventions each year to improve upon our technique and equipment.
No matter what the event is, we will always ask you how you would like us to dress.
We assume formal dress for every wedding that we do. If you are planning a themed wedding and require us to wear something other than a suit or tuxedo, we’ll be happy to accommodate your request.
Punctuality is a necessity. Mike’s Music allows an hour and a half to two hours for setup for every wedding or event. For example, if your start time is seven o’clock, we’ll arrive at five or five thirty to setup our equipment. This allows us time to speak to the coordinator at the venue, go over specific details, and do a sound check. If we are providing other services, we base the set-up time on the amount of equipment we have and the load in details.
Absolutely! Mike’s Music can be hired for any of our services separately. To receive the best price for our entertainment services like photo booths, lighting, and game rentals, it is best to book our DJ services too. There is a discount on these extras if you hire our DJ along with any other rentals. Be sure to look at our packages for the best option for your wedding.
