Booking South Sound Events
To book one of our DJs on a Friday/Saturday (or a long weekend) during Peak Season (October to April), pricing is around $1950-$2150 including all equipment (at least 4x QSC PA speakers, wireless microphone, effect lighting etc), as well as access to our client login to guide you through planning and choosing music. Pricing depends on date and venue logistics.
If you have a specific DJ you wish to request, or a larger scale ultra premium event – we will provide you with a quote to fulfil your hopes and dreams!
A DEPOSIT of $600 is required to secure South Sound Events for your date
Discounts are sometimes available for Off-Peak weddings (late May to early September and weekdays)
If you are budgeting less than this, please do still get in touch – we have local DJ friends that are not trained by South Sound Events for weddings – but can still DJ. We can help you find someone unspecialised that could help you out.
The Finer Details
The day of your wedding we work approximately from 11am, until 1am. Those fourteen or so hours are the fun part of the job!
Aside from this time spent on the day, which entails DJ-ing for you, testing equipment, packing the car, setting up and then packing down – our fee also goes toward the purchase, constant upgrade and replacement of high quality PA gear and DJ equipment… and partly contributes to the many hours spent researching music, answering phone calls and emails, bookkeeping and running the business.
Apart from providing awesome music for the event, it is important to us that your Run Sheet makes sense and has a good flow to it, so that your guests are relaxed and comfortable. We work closely with your MC so that they can enjoy their night without having to be worried about the time or what is happening next (or otherwise we are more than happy to MC for you). Our service really entails event management.
We are providing a professional service, we are 100% reliable (always turn up!) and most importantly for the vibe on your wedding day – we enjoy our job. Aside from the great music, having a DJ dancing and enjoying your party is much better than someone sitting down looking bored on their phone all night.
If this pricing is a little confusing or you require some more information, please don’t hesitate to call or email.
We are happy to chat with you if you are interested having us along to party with you – absolutely no obligation, happy to help and see if we are the right service for you.
