How are you different?
Weddings are our favourite type of party, but they’re not for the faint-hearted! You’ll want a DJ who can handle the pressure of the day and get everyone – from shy work colleagues to the over 80s – to bust some moves while keeping the tunes classy. 😉
Rather than work with DJs who play background music at bars or sporting events, we’ve hand-picked DJs who regularly rock weddings and have done so for years. Check out our blog from DJ Aleks Mac on how our DJs use their wedding experience to pick the right tunes for your big day.

Who runs One More Song?
Eddy and Aleks Mac (partners in life and business!). As well as running the business, we DJ at our events too. We’re involved in every facet of One More Song and love getting to know our clients! See us in action on Instagram.
How does your pricing work?
We charge $1,540 for 4 hours, $1,760 for 5 hours and $1,980 for 6 hours. If your event goes over 6 hours, we charge an extra $110 per half hour.
You can add sax and/or percussion for $770 each and lights for $220. If your venue is over 40 kms from Melbourne CBD we’ll add a small travel fee. All pricing includes GST.
Check out our blog on why we charge what we do.
Besides rockstar DJs at my event, what else does your service include?
Good question! It’s important to get our clients’ vibe/taste in music – we can be as hands-on or hands-off as you like.
Our service includes:
- In-person/video/phone meetings
- Help in picking music for your event
- High-end speakers, DJ decks and a mic for speeches
- Working with your venue and other suppliers to make sure everything runs smoothly!
Check out our blog on what really goes into DJing a wedding to see the work that goes in before, during and after a gig to ensure the music aspect of your big day remains stress-free. It’s much more than just playing the music on the night!
How do I let you know what music I like?
All our DJs select tracks by taking your music brief and reading the crowd on the night. There are no pre-prepared playlists. All our DJs live mix – this is what you’re paying for! We just ask you let us know what genres, artists and songs you like, and importantly, what you DON’T like (eg the Nutbush, obvs).
Do you take song requests?
Using your brief, we’ll carefully select tunes for different parts of the reception. It’s also our job to take and field song requests from guests throughout the night.
If a guest requests something we know you won’t like, we’ll ask them if there’s anything else they’d like to hear. Also, if it’s not the right time to play a song request, we’ll mark it in our software to play later on. 🙂
We're having our wedding on a private property. What do you need?
Our DJs need cover from the elements (regardless of rain or shine!). We also need access to single phase power. If you’re running a generator some distance from where the action is, we just need an extension to where the DJ is set up.
When should we book you?
The earlier the better! We fill up on weekends quickly. For weddings, we recommend booking at least 9 months out.
(Depending on where you’re at in the planning process, you may need some other wedding vendor recommendations – check out our Friends page for some kick-ass suppliers we love to work with!).
Do you have a COVIDSafe plan?
One More Song is committed to the safety of its owners and contractors, clients, event guests and other industry vendors. We have put together a COVIDSafe plan that covers the essential actions we’ll undertake to ensure we’re operating in a COVIDSafe way. As restrictions change, we will update this plan and publish the latest version on our website.
What if we have to move our event due to COVID-19?
It’s such an unpredictable time, but we’ve got your back! If you have booked us but need to move your event to another date due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will happily put forward your part payment towards a new date without any additional fees. If you’re re-booking for a second time, we charge a rebooking fee.
Even if your plans have changed, here’s why you still need a DJ at a small wedding.
I want in! What’s next?
