OT.. I have to agree with Cap's post. I too would rather see a party end on a high note than going into 6-7 hours and a fights breaks out. They will all remember that. If our contract is 5 hours, and the person wishes to want OT, they must let us know 1/2 prior. Not 5 minutes before. We also don't have anywhere to go and we are flexible. Our OT rate is 1/2 hour increments. We base it on our hourly rate and 1/2. Hence, $150 per 1/2 hour. Around our area, I've heard other DJs get as low as $125 per hour for OT.
