Celebration Entertainment Budgeting Information

Are you working on your celebration entertainment budgeting? JD Productions offers straight forward, attractive prices.

Although fees for DJ/MC services are based on scheduled playing time, we easily invest many more hours into your event to achieve its overall success.  That time includes such things as consulting with you; preparing a celebration timeline and event sequence; scripting introductions and special announcements; rehearsing; communicating in advance with other vendors (venue, caterer, photographer, videographer); music researching; song editing; music programming; previewing the site; traveling to and from your event; and equipment loading, unloading, setting up, tearing down, and reloading (including bringing backup equipment).

You receive a lot for your entertainment budgeting dollars with JD Productions!
