Answers to frequently asked questions
Thank you for your interest in Music Host Entertainment. Congratulations on your engagement!  We do have your date available.

 

Planning

We can't wait to connect you and your DJ to begin your planning! This includes a discussion of music to be played that evening and also planning a timeline for the activities of that night. Our music library is immense, so there's really nothing we can't play!
The day of the reception, we will be setup prior to the arrival of guests. Your DJ will play background music through the cocktail hour and dinner periods and then dance music for the remainder of the evening. He will be available to handle announcements and introductions throughout the reception and provide hands-on event coordination, working with your other vendors to ensure the smooth flow of events at your reception.
 

Pricing

Prices vary because our services for each event are tailored to your needs, but below are some basics.

Pricing for in-season events: (roughly May-October and December) on Saturday evenings:

Our staff DJ’s begin at just $999.00 for up to 6 hours of music coverage. We ask for 1/2 as a deposit to hold the date, with the balance due 2 weeks prior to the event. Travel charges may apply for out of town events.
 
There is no time charge for equipment set-up or tear-down. We frequently offer discounts for out-of-season, non-Saturday and afternoon events and would be happy to discuss that by phone.
 
Our contracted price is based upon our DJ setting up at one location and providing music and sound reinforcement for the duration of the event from that single location with no transfer of equipment to any other location (such as another location within the same room or to another room or address). We can provide additional sound systems for ceremonies and events with multiple locations where sound is required. The charge for that is $299 per additional sound system.
 
We do offer military discounts where appropriate.

Service

Also, knowing that we are a multi-year recipient of The Knot Best of Weddings Award, a recent inductee to the Knot Hall of Fame and multi-year recipient of the Weddingwire Couples Choice Award will help ensure that you have the peace-of-mind so essential on your wedding day. Here's what one of our brides had to say:
 
"I discovered Rick Reuther's Music Host Entertainment after being a bridesmaid in another wedding. I was impressed with their professionalism and quality music selection and overall performance. When it came time for my wedding, there wasn't much of a question. Our DJ was easy to communicate with via email before the wedding and was very thorough in our meeting with him prior to the wedding. Right down to making sure he would pronounce the names of the bridal party correctly, what songs were a "must play" and which ones were a "do not play". He kept everything going very smoothly from cocktail hour through the end of the night. It's been a month since our wedding and our friends and family are STILL talking about what a great party it was and we attribute most of that to our DJ's work. We'll be using Rick Reuther's Music Host Entertainment if we should ever need them in the future and will be sure to recommend them to others as well!"
