DJ Services by BWNC
The hourly rate is charged only for the time the event is scheduled to run and does not count setup or take-down. Minimum of two hours, regardless of actual duration. Time is rounded to a half hour.
Any charges in addition to the standard rate will be discussed. We do not like hidden fees, so we are open to negotiations.
We have professional sound system pumping sound at 1000W, 15" 2-way Multipurpose Self-powered PA Speaker
$500/event minimum + $75/hour
Since it is your special day, BWNC wants to ensure perfection. Extra planning goes into curating the best day of your life. The event minimum allows us to ensure your happiness, which is still affordable.
Set-up & Takedown
BWNC does not charge for set-up or takedown. We plan to set-up an hour before go time.
If your event requires an early set up, or if take down is not immediately after a set, additional time (rounded up to the nearest 1/2 hour) is considered part of the total event time and is charged at the standard rate of $75/hour.
There is no travel charge for events within Albuquerque city limits. For events outside of Albuquerque travel distance is calculated on the current years’ tax rate mileage. For more distant locations or any special travel requirements (flight, hotel, etc.), there may be additional charges.
All travel distances are measured in round-trip driving miles using Google Maps route from the intersection of Central and Richmond, Albuquerque, NM.
All required parking and/or toll charges are additional.
For most daytime events with natural lighting, lighting is not recommended . Most nighttime events are most enjoyable with lighting. Our lighting rates start at $200.
