William Shakespeare once wrote ‘if music be the food of love, play on.” Though Shakespeare’s character, Orsino is attempting to create so much love around himself that he gets sick of it, there is a lot of truth to the line.
There’s a reason you can find so many love songs on the radio, and why so many high schoolers look forward to prom. Love seems to thrive in the presence of music, and we thrive in the presence of love.
This is also why so many big celebrations have a DJ. How easy is it t hire a DJ, though, and how much does a DJ cost? We’ll discuss that in this article.
DJs and Events
The cost of a DJ depends on a few different factors, with one of the most important being why you’re hiring a DJ. A lot of DJs charge different amounts for different events.
The most affordable events are often birthday parties, and the most expensive are weddings. It sometimes costs twice as much to hire a DJ for a wedding as it does for a birthday party.
A wedding DJ costs so much more for a few different reasons. One of those reasons is crowd size.
Small weddings can have as many as eighty guests, to say nothing of larger weddings. Have you ever had 80 people show up to a birthday party? Granted, if you had 75 weddings in a lifetime, there would probably be a lot fewer guests.
Crowd size plays a key role in the cost of a DJ because more people mean a larger space. A larger space means that more equipment will be needed for the music to fill the whole room.
Not all DJs use the exact same equipment, and that can affect the cost quite a bit. Some use better quality equipment or have additional things they like to use. There are a few questions you should ask a DJ before hiring them, and what equipment they use is one of them.
Some DJs come with the option to rent additional party attractions, such as photo booths. These extras will add to the cost, so they’re best avoided if money is a concern.
How much does a DJ cost? It depends on how long you hire them for. Most DJs charge by the hour, so if you want them to work for several hours, you’ll have to budget accordingly.
While we can’t give you exact numbers, prices for a DJ range from about $250-$500 on the low end and can cost well over $1000 if you want to go all-out.
