The White Tree’s DJ options

06 / 21

We have several packages featuring a DJ aesthetic that are designed to suit a range of wedding and event settings.

We have 3 products as follows:

1. The White Tree Live Mix: This features our DJ performing together WITH live instruments (sax, trumpet and/or Latin percussion)

2. Best Of Both: This features live acoustic musician(s) for the first half of the night and then a DJ taking over for the dance sets

3. The Party Starter: This is a cost effective package featuring live acoustic musician(s) for the first half and then our PA system utilised for the later dance sets.

To help you work out your preferred option, let’s break down our three options and explain their attributes and prices/inclusions together with some handy film examples…

1. The White Tree Live Mix
This product features our DJ performing together WITH our live musicians.  The instruments that can perform with the DJ are sax, trumpet and/or Latin percussion.  The White Tree Live Mix 1 features the DJ, + 1 instrument of your choice.  The peak Saturday price for this is $2,920 inc gst.  This is based on a 5hr timeframe (e.g. 6pm – 11pm) and features the DJ on call for the full duration and then the live musician to perform with the DJ for 3 x 45min sets (or rather, 135mins total playing time which you can split up as you please).  You can view a sample Live Mix running schedule at the bottom of this blog post.

Our PA system and basic lighting is also included in this package price and this equipment is sufficient for events of up to 180 guests.   The White Tree Live Mix 2 (featuring 2 live musicians of your choice) is $3,870 inc gst.  And The White Tree Live Mix 3 (featuring DJ + 3 live musicians) is $4,820 inc gst.  Remember, cheaper prices are on offer for non-Saturday weddings, and 5% discounts are applicable if booking us for multiple services.

3. The Party Starter
This package is a cost effective option featuring live acoustic music early on (3 x 40min sets) and then our singer remains behind to control dance music through the PA for the latter stages of the event.  Note: This is not a professional DJ service, it is equipment hire.

Our singer will remain on hand to ensure the equipment is in check.  They can play our White Tree curated dance playlist that features a collection of popular tracks.  Or, they can connect your own custom playlist that you have created via a platform such as Spotify.

The Party Starter is great for relaxed/low key weddings, or situations where you are wanting to keep the entertainment budget in check.
