Hello, and thank you for your interest in Audio Arts on the web!
I have been working with sound and electronics virtually all my life. In 2004 I agreed to provide music for my high school class reunion. Based on that experience I set out to put together the most state-of-the-art and convenient package of sound gear possible.
I am often asked what my "price" is. There are really too many variables that must be considered to post a price list. I can tell you that for the 2017 season, my standard fee for a 4-hour wedding event will be $950. It could be more or less depending on your unique circumstances. After consultation with you I can give you a firm price. Buyer beware: If someone is offering to do a wedding job for substantially less than this, you'll probably get a pretty bad experience from it (oh, the horror stories I have heard about bad DJs!) My assurance is that from me you'll get top quality, dependability, and unparalleled service, for the same price you might pay for a more average DJ. My fee also covers a 1-hour consultation meeting prior to the event to choose your ceremony music, and lay out the general plan (then we usually adjust & finalize the plans via email exchanges).
PA for Bands and Because my set-up is so high-grade, it is perfectly suitable for supporting an average sized band in small to medium venues and even in outdoor pavilions. We've done this - and have the resources to collaborate and provide for all your needs.
Sound Engineering for Live Events: I gained my first experience mixing live sound for church. I take a lot of pride in making sure everything for a live show goes as smoothly and flawlessly as possible. You want it that way for a worship experience. I simply apply that philosophy to everything I do. I usually do live shows for an hourly rate, plus a set rental price for any gear I provide.
