Q: Does the DJ take breaks?
No. Our DJ staff will perform continuously throughout the night. From our scheduled start time until your party is over, the music will be playing (unless of course you request a break for some other reason).
Q: Can we choose the music to be played at our event?
Our services are based solely upon what you want them to be. We have learned that keeping your crowd alive depends on a lot of things including the type of music, type of mix, DJ personality, atmosphere, etc…but not just the music. From our song search page you have the opportunity to create a song list for your event and submit it to our staff all online. Taking the time to submit lists online will greatly increase your chances of a successful event and also allow your DJ to customize the music at your event.
Q: Can we have a “do not play” list?
Yes. This may be just as important to you and your event. You may also create a do not play list from our song search page and send it to us in the same manner. Although asking the DJ to not play some songs such as “starter” songs may make it a little harder to fill the dance floor. It is your event, we do want you to have it your way.
Q: What if we want a song that you don’t have?
Our DJs music collection spans thousands of songs from several decades. Often a client will want a song that is somewhat obscure and They may not have it. If this is the case there are two options: you may either supply us with the CD before the event so that we may check it for scratches, or (if you do not own a legal copy) we will obtain that song before your event. Just give us lots of advance notice if we need to find a song. If you give us a CD we will return it to you at the end of the night.
Q: How loud do you play the music?
One of the greatest concerns of bands and DJs is that the music is too loud. This will not be the case with our services. During your cocktail and dinner hours we will play soft and relaxing background music. The sound will be as evenly dispersed throughout the hall as possible. We will make sure that your guests can hear both themselves talking and the background music. When it comes time for dance music your DJ will adjust accordingly. Speakers may be repositioned. Our staff will adjust the equalization of the music in order to get the right sound for the specific room. They will focus the music in the dance floor area. This means that while the volume is loud enough to dance to on the floor, the rest of the room will be able to continue to hear themselves socialize.
Q: Do you have backup equipment?
Our DJs will have a small amount of equipment on-hand to ensure the music keeps going. Our equipment and staff are very dependable. If something does fail, it can be easily fixed or switched without you and your guests even knowing. If something major happens (which it never has) an off duty employee may be called upon to provide additional reinforcement.
Q: Do you provide a dance floor lighting?
Our dance floor lighting are additional options available to you.
Q: How interactive are your DJs?
This is another great concern of all customers. The answer is simple: our DJs are as interactive as you want them to be. They can be background figures that keep the attention on the bridal party, completely outgoing, or any level that you desire. We are professional entertainers and can handle your requests without a problem. However, you will never hear your DJ yelling or singing into the microphone. We still maintain a degree of professionalism no matter how outgoing you want us to be. We will use our skills professionally and never steal the spotlight.
Q: Will my DJ be drinking at my event?
Our company does not allow any of our entertainers to consume alcohol before or during any event. We are strict on this policy and you have nothing to worry about. Our DJs are professionals and act accordingly.
Q: Are you insured?
Most quality banquet facilities require entertainment companies to be fully insured. We are covered by a $1,000,000.00 aggregate liability insurance policy. You and your guests are protected by our service. This gives you the security of knowing that you, your friends, your family and the facility are taken care of by a professional company that cares enough to be prepared.
Q: Does the DJ expect tipping/gratuity?
While it is common to tip the entertainment industry, it is not mandatory. If your DJ surpasses your expectations and you wish to tip, a 5-10% tip would be considered extremely generous and taken as a great compliment.
Q: Should we feed the DJ?
This is another common question. The answer is up to you. Our DJs are often at your location for 8 hours or more after setup and takedown time is included. Please let us know on the online planner if you will be feeding the DJ so that if you are not they can stop and pick something up on the way to your event. If you do provide your DJ staff with food they will be grateful.
