DJ Opinions please..

Hey ladies..

I'm a little stressed out.  I got a quote for $2900 for a DJ, MC, and two musicians (like a sax or conga player or guitarist) to play along with the DJ for the entire night.  I have seen this particular MC and DJ in action and I LOVED them but I just feel like that is so much money. The entertainment at the wedding reception is really important for my FI and I- we want a really good party- but I am just not sure if this is way too much or if these are the prices everyone else is looking at more or less.  I am still on the hunt, so if you can recommend anyone that would be great.  

TIA, girls.

    I'm using Liquid DJs, they are really nice and a lot of people that have used them have really good things to say. They might be able to help you with recommending someone for the other part of you want. Also maybe try to look into the brazilian dancers? I called RITMO and gave this quote:
    3 dancers, 2 drummers $1250 (half hour interactive show)
    I don't know what you are looking for but I think is a lot of fun ;)

    Good Luck!

    We used Shannon from Liquid DJs and he was AWESOME! Kept the party going all night. He also kept checking in with us to make sure we were alright and whether we wanted anything done etc. I totally recommend him, and he was under $700 for 5 hours back when we booked.  We didn't book additional entertainment because we didn't think it was needed so unfortunately I can't help with that, but I'm sure Shannon can help you find some.

    BTW - Shannon was also the MC and he was perfect for that.

    We also had Shannon from Liquid DJs, he is beyond awesome.  He knows how to work the party, for sure.  Good luck!

    I don't know if they provide additional entertainment, but I am using Vision DJS and am extremely happy so far. They are extremely professional and have reasonable prices.

    I agree with Shannon from Liquid DJs, although his prices are over $700 for 5 hours now.

    We're going with DJ Ubi for 5 hours and he was under $600. I'm not sure about other musicians, but I'm using Master Musicians for the cocktail hour & they seemed reasonably priced.

    Hope this helps!
