I agree. Usually the Totems/Moving Heads, or any lights are an add on option. However, DJs in this price range often attract clientelle who have more of a budget, and do want those lights to be used...at least from what I see with your clients and others.But starting price has nothing to do with heads totems TVs and all the extras (unless u inside it for free). My starting price is 2000 for 2 tops and 2 subs.... no cocktail no ceremony systems.
I know a DJ who charges $2,000 to start, and does have a couple of totems and older large moving heads. I think he's around $2,600+ with the totems/moving heads. However, from what I understand, only like 1/5 of his clients pay him to bring them out. ...Could be the service area and type of clientelle ...D.C. area clients seem to be much more conservative when it comes to the big lighting productions...Also many of the venues here are limited with space for a DJ set up as well.
