Q: With so many DJs out there, how can I be sure I am hiring the right one?
A: Excellent question! In this business, many DJs will say they are the best. In my experience, word of mouth is the best proof. I invite you to Click Here and take a look at reviews by some of the people we have worked for over the last few years.
Q: What is the process for booking my event?
A: We try to make it as convenient for you as possible. We have the option to meet, or we can do it right here on my website. We ask for a $300 deposit and a signed contract to secure the date. Use the “Check Availability” tool by clicking here to begin the process.
Q: How do I pay?
A: Check, Cash, all major credit cards, and Paypal. $300 deposit due at booking, and remainder of the balance due 1 week prior to event.
Q: I just want peace of mind the day of the reception. Will you schedule and direct events that day?
A: Absolutely! About a month before the event, we will set up a comprehensive consultation. We will customize every detail of your wedding reception to make sure your night goes flawlessly, taking the “worry” out of your night, and allowing you to have fun!
Q: I want to get a head start on planning. Do you have suggestions on things others do at their weddings, or songs for my dances?
A: Our interactive online planning service allows you to get every detail of your wedding reception down to a T, from the music to be played, to every introduction and announcement, to special events throughout your evening. Then, we execute the event exactly as planned, so there are no worries.
Q: What type of music will you play?
A: Short answer is we will play the music that energizes your guests! From Country, to Pop, to Rock, to Hip Hop, to Swing; From 50s through now; and everything in between! We have it, and are professionals at reading the crowd to maximize their enjoyment.
Q: Can I (or my guests) make requests?
A: Absolutely. You will be given access to our online music request tool when you book us. With that tool, you will be able to request music, preview songs, get suggestions for special dances (Father/Daughter, Bride/Groom, etc.), create lists of songs you would like us to play, and lists of songs you would like us to not play! We am one of the few DJ services around with this online capability. In regards to guest requests at your event, we will play them within reason. Sometimes the song does not fit the mood, or it is not a dance-able song. We always use our best judgement as to whether the song will energize the crowd. If so, we will try to work it in.
