Mitzvah Entertainment Budgeting Information

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

Mitzvah prices start at $1295 for up to four hours of musical entertainment.

Although fees are based on scheduled playing time, we easily invest 25 to 30 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; creating a candle-lighting ceremony list; creating trivia cards about the bar/bat mitzvah’s background, hobbies, and interests; 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 Mitzvah entertainment budgeting dollars with JD Productions!
