FAQs

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions from our previous clients and research in the industry. Most of these questions relate to weddings and some may generally apply to other events.
  • How long have you been doing this? We have been in the industry for over 25 years and have stayed close to trends in style, delivery and equipment.
  • Do you have liability insurance? Yes, up One Million Dollars
  • Describe your DJ and style: Low key, yet fun!
  • Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested? You can request a million songs, but consider the average song is about four minutes. Out of the 4 minutes, we will play about 1.5 to 2 minutes each during the dancing portion. With the average open dance time of about 1.5 hours, divide 90 minutes by 2 and all you have room for is about 18 songs. It's not much, so we ensure every song is a hit...especially with your guests. For cocktail and dinner, consider that you would get about 15-18 full-length songs in one hour.
  • What is your usual attire? I match attire for the reception or whatever the bride and groom requests....to a certain point 🙂
  • If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it? No. We will make every attempt to locate the song and make it available for the wedding.
  • How many other DJs do you work with? I only have one assistant to help out during setup, breakdown and serves as a go-to guy for the evening if needed.
  • What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for? 4 hours is our standard length for services.
  • Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking? Absolutely!
  • Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events? No, but we can customize the playlist for any event.
  • Can the client submit a do-not-play list? This is a must!
  • Do you bring your own equipment? Yes...and also a backup set!
  • What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service? Mood Lighting or uplighting
  • How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on? We always setup at least two hours before any event. For hotel events, we usually request for a standard 6' table. We can provide a table if the event is outdoors.
  • Do you have any extra space requirements? No
  • Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events? There's a time and place to display a huge banner promoting our company, and a wedding is certainly not the time and place for that.
  • Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs? My emcee service covers everything from welcoming guests, introductions and formal program to getting guests excited about dancing!
  • How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing? This is never an issue with me.
  • What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal? Our policy on breaks is to always have someone at the controls. If not, we can place the system on auto-pilot for a few minutes.
  • Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks? Yes, of course!
  • What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event? We have a network of wedding professionals ready and willing to assist.
  • Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? No
  • What is your overtime rate? We can discuss overtime rates when it becomes necessary or if you foresee the possibility of extending.
  • Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge? Our rates are inclusive of travel, setup and breakdown.
  • What is the required deposit to secure your services? We require a 25% deposit to reserve the date and a guarantee that you know who your DJ will be.
