How much do Djs charge How much does a DJ cost? With DJ Entertainment there is a wide range of prices. My general recommendation is to go with a company that you have seen/heard before in person that is a match for your event. The cost of wedding site is a good way to get a ballpark figure for what you should expect in a quote for a DJ in your area. Rates vary depending on your area. Keep in mind that while your event may only be 6 hours, the DJ may have spent 10 hours planning, rehearsing, consulting and editing music for your event.  In addition, there are other factors that are included such as purchasing insurance, music, advertising costs and equipment. So where a good DJ may be $1000 in Kansas The same level of service may be $2500 in Manhattan, NY]]>
