Looking for Resonable Price DJ

Looking for a reasonably priced DJ for wedding reception June 2012 Saturday evening.  I know it's a popular month and day...but quotes are coming in for $1400 or greater. I expected to pay a ilttle more for Saturday not but not thousands....  
Anyone have any recommendation for affordable reputable DJ with experience in Baltimore area?
Thanks

    That price sounds about right for the area.  I have my DJ for my ceremony music, and cocktail/dinner and reception from 6pm-11 pm with lights he is running me $1500 and he is cutting me a deal because he is a friend of a friend.  But keep looking I am sure you will find someone in your budget.  Check weddingwire for recommendations.

    Orlando Entertainment?  They're about $700 but you get what you pay for.  
    We ended up just going with a band for just under $2000.  If we were going to pay $1500 it'd be for live music.
    Keep checking around--I seem to think several places we checked out were just under $1,000.

    I saw my DJ (World Renown Entertainment) at a wedding, so I got to see them in action. Although my wedding isn't until April. They have been very responsive and are members of a DJ association (ADJA.org)
    Check them out:   www.weddingwire.com/biz/world-renown-elkridge/608718198a7b125c.html" target="_blank">http://www.weddingwire.com/biz/world-renown-elkridge/608718198a7b125c.html

    If you do contact them, please tell them Lucy sent you.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks Lucy and Blonde....   Like the re-assurance of DJ Orlando services...I just got a quote from him ...coming in at $900 but we need a partial second set-up for ceremony with 4 1/2 hours of total service.   I will also check out World Renown....   ThanksAgain

    We booked with Steve Moody.  He has had nothing but awesome reviews on weddingwire.  When we met with him in person we were sold!  We booked his basic package for 5 hours at around $1000.  As far as I know, he doesn't charge extra for Saturday weddings.

    We used Chris Temple from C&J Entertainment in Odenton. Their pricing is pretty reasonable and he did an amazing job. He helps plan the entire timeline for the reception which really helped and things went so smoothly!
