PEAK Rates: Weddings/Milestone Events on Friday or Saturday, April through October, plus major holidays/holiday eves.
OFF-PEAK Rates: Weddings/Milestone Events Sunday-Thursday, November-March, and all other types of events, except major holidays/holiday eves.
Additional Hours: Booked in advance or overtime.
Additional Speakers/Areas: All gear should be set up and ready to go before guests arrive – we avoid moving speakers around during the event.
• If the Ceremony and/or Cocktail Hour are in the same room/area as the Reception, no additional speakers are needed, and you are free to add on additional hours.
• If the Ceremony and/or Cocktail Hour are in separate rooms/areas than the Reception, 1-4 additional speakers may be needed, plus any additional hours.
Early Setup/Downtime/Late Breakdown: No charge for setup in the 1-2 hour window before the DJ’s start time, or breakdown within 1 hour of the DJ’s end time, as long as it doesn’t disrupt any other activity going on in or around the space. Otherwise, this fee may apply.
