Is setup time included in the price?
Yes. You do not pay for setup or load-out time. Depending on the location and set up difficulty, we typically arrive 1-1.5 hours prior to the start time. Should your event require a much earlier set up time, a small charge may be negotiated. Equipment is set up and the sound is checked long before your first guest arrives. For nearly every event, this is on our time.
Do you take breaks?
Our services are truly uninterrupted and non-stop. From the scheduled start to end time, the music is continuous. The entire event is carefully managed per your input in our pre-party planning. This will insure a smooth flow of activity and remove any hidden stress factor.
Can we choose the music to be played?
Absolutely! In the pre-event planning, your choices and preferred music format is most important. We plan the flow of songs to enhance the various elements of your event. Through many years of experience I have learned that keeping the atmosphere happy and the dance floor moving is influenced by many factors. This includes not only the music played, but also the order and style in which the songs are mixed together. Your preferences and selections are always given the highest priority! You may provide a list of "must play" songs and a list of "play if possible" songs. All music is carefully selected to create a smooth flow of events building the perfect atmosphere you have planned for.
Yes. This is very important to assuring your enjoyment at your party. I am careful to avoid any selections that could be considered beyond the limits of good taste. Any preferences you have will be honored.
What music styles do you offer?
Our present library contains well over 60,000 songs and is continually updated. This includes the very best of good dance music, including: Rock, Rhythm & Blues (R&B), Funk, Top 40, Hip Hop, Disco, Reggae, Salsa, Latin, Alternative, Country, Swing, Big Band, Irish, Polka, Hawaiian, Italian, Ethnic, Cajun, Carolina Beach and Oldies. Your event is personalized to be the celebration of a lifetime.
What if we want a song that you don't have?
We have over 60,000 songs in our library. This encompasses the widest variety of hits from the 1930s to the present. If a selection is not in our current library, we will try to acquire if it is available. You're welcome to provide your own special music on CD to be played. In our planning phase, simply indicate which songs you wish to provide.
How loud do you play the music?
One of the greatest complaints about bands and DJs alike is that they play the music too loud. We believe this should never happen! I always control the volume to meet the needs of the event with the accuracy and skill of a trained engineer and musician. The speakers are positioned for proper sound coverage to allow the music to be powerful enough for dancing and yet comfortable for conversation throughout the rest of the room.
Do you carry backup equipment?
Your special event could very well be one of the most memorable days of your life. In recognition of this fact, I use state-of-the-art equipment of the highest quality available. Yet understanding ‘Murphy’s Law’ essential backup equipment is always on-site to insure you enjoy a remarkable party.
Can we view a live event?
Please call to discuss. If at all possible, I will offer advice or an event may be viewed from a point of observation. Please understand all events are not accessible to the general public and the music format of each occasion is personalized to meet the client’s wishes.
Will you travel to other cities?
Yes, we often travel to other cities and resort locations. For long distance travel, there may be a small but reasonable fee for the additional hours to drive to that location. Some locations may require overnight lodging and a fee for this would be included.
How early should we arrange for your services?
Simply put...the sooner the better! Often popular dates can and do book as early as a year in advance. Our suggestion is be prepared to sign an agreement as early as 6-18 months before the event. A timely decision can ensure our availability. However, some dates might remain open until a month before. So, if you're planning an event for next month, please ask if that date may be available.
Do you offer a written agreement or contract?
Absolutely, our written agreement is straightforward and written in plain English so that you can understand the terms. It is signed by both parties and gives you a high level of protection and dependability. The deposit and signed agreement officially reserve your date. An executed copy (signed by both parties) will be sent to you for confirmation.
Do you belong to any professional organizations?
Yes. To maintain training, reliability, certification, insurance and networking we are active members of the following organizations: • American Disc Jockey Association • The wedding Guide • DJ Intelligence • Disc Jockey America • Richmond Metro Chamber of Commerce
How much is the deposit and when is final payment due?
A small deposit, along with the signed agreement are required to reserve your date. The balance due will be paid the date of your event. We gladly accept check, cash, Visa, MasterCard and money orders. Taking care of payment in advance works best for most clients and we are happy to discuss any method you prefer.
Is tipping/gratuity appropriate?
Tipping is an appreciation for a job well done. If your DJ went over and above your expectation, tipping is an excellent way to show your appreciation. Recognizing the value and extensive effort made, many clients tip the performer. Should you feel the service rendered has surpassed your expectations and wish to provide a bonus, it will be accepted graciously as the highest compliment from a well satisfied customer. Remember, you should never be intimidated into a tip, ever. It is your choice to reward good service.
Should we provide a meal for the DJ?
This is certainly your option. For a normal 4-hour event (Including load-in and load-out time) we could be in that location up to 8 hours. Should you choose to provide a meal for the DJ, the convenience is warmly appreciated.
