3 Hour event - $250 Just great music from start to end.
5 Hour event - $350 Typical drinks/dinner or BBQ/dancing event
6+ Hour event - $450 Typical drinks/dinner or BBQ/dancing event
with award presentations or speeches. This is
a full afternoon / night event.
Overtime $25 in 30 minute increments or fractions.
Please estimate the length of your event carefully and realistically. If you book a DJ for 3 hours but the caterers, the guest of honor, or the newly elected officers are running late and 3 hours becomes 4 or more, like all services that charge by the hour, the meter will be running.
The above apply to venues within 30 miles of Alameda, on dry land (sorry, no maritime events)
On my part:
1. The setup and takedown do not count against the contracted hours.
2. For events with drinks/dinner/ etc., I will complete my setup and
sound level checks before the start of your event.
3. If you need public address support for the speech/award segment
of the evening I can provide that at no extra charge as long as the
wireless microphone puts out through my amplifier/speakers.
4. If you book a 6+ hour event I will continue playing until midnight or until
you say "whoa."This applies to drinks/dinner events that commence
at or after 6PM only.

Digitally controlled LED floor lights. select the mood lighting / color scheme that complements the event...or your decorative pallet. When the music starts I will coordinate these lights to "match" the songs. Picture dancing to Etta James "At Last" in a room awash in scarlet or deep purple.
Add $100 to $250 based on number of lights and size of room.
A slowly revolving 16 inch mirrored ball illuminated by 2 tightly-focused pin spotlights. A mirrored ball adds a touch of fantasy and grooviosity to evening events. Disco music without a mirrored ball is going to a movie without having popcorn.
These are a growing collection of Laser and LED projectors that add excitement, movement, and color to the dancefloor. Most are synchronized to the music tempo, and together they will magically transport your guests to one of those clubs in the city where everyone's pupils are dialated and the songs all go on forever and sound pretty much alike, and everyone is about 25 years away from havng to worry about wrinkles or baldness.
Add $25 - $50
Venues outside 30 mile radius
Add $25 - $150 depending on distance and whether an overnight accommodation is required
Public Address System
Shure Wireless microphones run through a Behringer amplifier and broadcast from Peavey 15 inch speakers. You can be smugly confident that the entire audience is hearing every word, clear as a bell, and free of feedback. I can provide a microphone stand or you can move amongst the tables channeling your inner Jerry Springer.
Add $25 (no charge for announcements made from the DJ station microphone.
Event Master of Ceremony
When you need an emcee to keep your event moving along on schedule. Generally these involve introductions, announcements, dinner call, first dance, toasts, cake-cutting, garter extraction, bouquet toss, photo ops, departure, police raid...Okay, I made that last one up.
Full Monty (Package)
6+ hour event, no overtime charges, with full uplighting (up to 12 lights) Mirrored ball, Special FX lights, Public Address, emcee services...the works. For venues within 30 mile radius of Alameda, on dry land (sorry, no maritime venues.)
A $300 deposit is required to book the Full Monty. The deposit is fully refundable up to 7 calendar days before the event.
Full Monty Hall (Let's make a Deal)
If you have regularly scheduled events at your location or would be interested in booking several events I am sure we can come to terms on a package of music and extras that fit your needs and budget.
