1.How many years of experience do you have ?
A: I have been DJing for a minimum of 8 years, but professionally DJing 5 years.
2.What type of music do you offer?
A: Our music library is suitable for all occasions and can be tailored for any event. We feature over 50,000 track titles, and music is available from the 1960's all the way up to today's top hits. We have it and we can mix the songs together to make the music work for your entire guest list. This is where the experience stands out.
3.Do you have any backup plans if something goes wrong or happens to the DJ?
A: If something happens to the DJ and he can not make the event. We always keep contracted DJs on call to fulfill the contract. We always allow for our client to decide weather they would like to continue with our company or seek other venders If the original DJ can not provide the service. In addition, the DJ has a backup system with them should something fail equipment wise.
4.Will the DJ play requests?
A: Of course if allowed in the contract, keep in mind the DJ filters requests, meaning they will not play a song that you specifically asked them not to play or music from a genre you asked them not to play. If someone makes a request that fits in well with what the DJ is playing at the time and with the music you want, then the DJ will try and play it.
5.Can we request songs for the DJ to play?
A: You are able to pick which songs you definitely want to hear, and ones you do not want to hear, for your event. We have an online planning system for this.
6.Can we provide our own music for the DJ to play?
A: Sure, but we would like to get the music file(s) in advance of the event. If doing this, please consider the audience attending your event.
7.What are your payment terms?
A: The deposit is required at the time of booking and the remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to the event date. Weddings are due 30 days out. Payments can be made through our online planning system using a debit or credit card or PayPal account. I also accept checks but you must first speak with me for details.
8.Do I tip the DJ?
A: We do not include gratuity in the final contract price. 10-20% is generally recommended if your DJ did a great job, but it is entirely up to you.
9.Will the DJ play overtime if needed?
A: Yes, the DJ is able to play past the contracted time, but payment is due at that time if at all possible. The DJ usually is equipped with a card “swiper” to accept payment for overtime. If not on the back of the contract is an amendment page. On that page it allows for additional services to be applied. Both parties will sign and the client will be contractually reasonable to pay the new balance within 24 hours.
10.When should we book a DJ?
A: A good time frame is at least six to twelve months out for a wedding. Less for other events. However, we do accept last minute events as well.
11.Should we feed the DJ?
A: This is not required in our contract and is completely up to you. Typically, the catering director or event coordinator will set aside a meal or boxed dinner for the DJ if requested by the client. But feeding the DJ would be appreciated.
12.What other options do you offer for events?
A: We offer ceremony audio, lighting (up-lighting & dance floor lighting), photo booths, cold spark machines, fog machines, dancing on the clouds effect,
13.How many songs should I request?
A: We would like for you to at least give the DJ 15-20 songs of different genres and artists you would like to hear, as well as songs/artists you don’t, so the DJ has an idea of what music you’d like for the different parts of the event.
14.What if we only need lighting, not DJ services?
A: Not a problem. We have a professional lighting technician who can customize your event, set up the equipment, operate it during the event, and tear it down at the end of the night. We also offer pinspot lighting to highlight your centerpieces at each table. Lighting changes the entire atmosphere of a room, let us do that for you.
15.Is a retainer required to reserve our date?
Yes. We require a retainer to reserve the items and secure your date. We can also set you up on an easy pay payment plan. The remaining balance is due 20 days before your event.
