HOW MUCH SPACE DOES THE DJ NEED FOR THEIR EQUIPMENT?


Ideally the DJ would have a 12 ft by 6ft area to setup.




MY RECEPTION IS OUTDOORS, WHAT SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS NEED TO BE MADE?


Our equipment should be covered during inclement weather. Depending on the event we do require power as well. If it’s a ceremony only we use portable sound systems that are battery powered and fully self-sufficient.

Our main system is good for up to 500 guests. We can accommodate larger groups by providing additional equipment.





Planning

WHAT IS PROVIDED FOR DINNER MUSIC?


We have several great compilations of light social music that we will provide. We ask that you tell us what style of music you like.




HOW DO I COMMUNICATE MY EVENT DETAILS AND REQUESTS TO THE DJ?


We provide you with access to our online client portal where you fill out your event details. Then it is sent to our music department and ultimately the DJ.




WHEN DO I NEED TO COMPLETE MY PLANNING FORMS?


Your planning forms should be completed no later than 2 weeks prior to your event. If you’re still unable to decide on special songs you can always update us via phone or email in the weeks leading up to your event.




WHAT’S THE MUSIC PLANNER AND WHAT DO I DO WITH IT?


This is for making specific music requests for the dance portion of your event. There are 3 lists in the music planner: must plays, play if possible and do not play.




WHAT IF I WANT A SONG THAT IS NOT ON YOUR PROVIDED MUSIC LIST?


We will happily get it for you. Our online music portal doesn’t have everything that we have as it is not updated as often. We have an unlimited amount of music. We also tell couples that if using a Spotify playlist as your request list is easier, then you can send us a link to that as well.




WHAT IF I'M HAVING TROUBLE PICKING MY SPECIAL EVENT SONGS?


We can help with that. Just give us an email or a call and we can help give you suggestions.




CAN I HAVE CUSTOM DINNER MUSIC?


You can select from a variety of popular styles that we can provide. If you would like specific songs during this time just let us know.




HOW MANY SONGS CAN BE PLAYED DURING A FOUR HOUR DANCE?


We can play between 50 and 60 songs.




HOW MANY REQUESTS SHOULD I MAKE?


You can make as many as you’d like but know that not every single song can be played. Trust the DJ to read the crowd and keep people dancing. That’s what we do best!




DO I HAVE TO REQUEST MUSIC FOR THE ENTIRE EVENT?


No. We can take care of all the music if you don’t have any specific requests.




IS IT OK IF I DON’T WANT CERTAIN MUSIC OR EVENTS?


Of course, just let us know what you’d like to exclude by putting it in "the do not play" list




HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?


We have no limitations on where we DJ. As long as it’s worth our time, we will be there. We have deejayed all over the world. Literally!





DJ

WILL THE DJ TAKE GUEST REQUESTS THE DAY OF THE RECEPTION?


Yes. Let us know, if you don’t want us to take requests.




HOW ARE DJS SELECTED FOR EVENTS?


Your DJ will be matched up with you based on the details that you provide us as a part of your music and event planner. Feel free to provide us with more information about your specific group and your desires for your ideal DJ so we can come up with the best match.




I SAW ONE OF YOUR DJ’S AND LOVED THEIR STYLE AND ENERGY, CAN I REQUEST THEM FOR MY EVENT?


Yes. We do our best to accommodate all DJ requests, but ultimately we cannot guarantee anyone’s availability.




WHAT IF THE DJ I REQUEST ISN’T AVAILABLE?


We will match you up with a DJ that has a similar style and energy. We will also consider your needs based on your planners to get the best fit.




WHAT WILL MY DJ WEAR TO MY EVENT?


Our DJs will be dressed to impress. We require that they wear formal attire such as suits and ties.




WHAT DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE FOR THE DJ AT THE EVENT?


We just ask that you provide power and that we are as close to the power as possible. We also request that we are placed near the dance floor as we are interactive and putting us in a loft or far away from the dance floor doesn’t create the type of experience we provide and we want it to be the BEST for both you and your guests.




ARE WE REQUIRED TO FEED THE DJ?


You are not contractually obligated to feed your DJ though most couples recognize that the DJ will be working very hard for them the day of and choose to include them in their head count. If you don’t plan to feed your DJ let them know so other arrangements can be made.

No, For DJs that are traveling a long distance we include a mileage fee that covers all essential costs.

WHAT IF MY DJ GETS SICK?


In the event of an emergency we have backup DJs to fill in.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR CEREMONY SERVICE PACKAGE?


We will provide a half hour of seating music, your custom selected music for the actual ceremony as well as a lapel mic for the officiant and a wireless mic for any readings or vows if needed. Your DJ will be there to oversee the entire ceremony.
