What is your performance style?
Simply put, we provide the steak with just the right amount of sizzle – a quality, professional and stylish entertainment experience without all of the unnecessary distractions that take the focus away and making you and your guests the center of attention, not us. We offer “non-traditional” wedding DJ entertainment, which means you won’t find party motivators, blow-up instruments, nightclub scaffolding, fog machines or the like at our events. You also won’t find any heavy upselling, disappointments or surprises. When you book with us, you can be confident that we will arrive on time, create an event with you in mind, keep the volume at an appropriate level, make the appropriate announcements at the right time and keep your dance floor packed all night long.
How early should we book your services?
Honestly, we recommend book as soon as possible. We only book one event per day and only 3-5 weddings per month, so our availability is limited. Most clients book our services several months in advance; many up to a year ahead. This is especially true for Saturday weddings and some of the more popular dates during the year.
What are your rates?
Please visit our Pricing page to see all of our costs up front and find a package that fits your needs and your budget. We don’t like to play games with our clients, and we want your experience to be as pleasant and stress-free as possible.
What are your deposit and payment policies?
We generally request a 50 percent deposit upon booking, with the balance due one week prior to the event date. We accept most credit and debit cards, online payments via PayPal and cash. If you wish to pay by check, please contact us for details.
Do you use a contract?
Absolutely. When you book with us, we’ll provide you with a contract that details what to expect for your event, and protects you from any unexpected issues.
Are you insured?
Yes; we carry a $2,000,000 liability insurance policy and additional equipment damage insurance, which exceeds most venue requirements. We will be happy to send a copy of our policy to your venue if needed. Insurance not only protects you from any mishaps, but demonstrates the professionalism of the vendors you work with. In addition, your venue may not allow uninsured vendors to enter their facility.
Do you take requests?
We love to work with our clients to get an understanding of which genres and specific songs they prefer. We can also accept requests from your guests during the event if you like. We’ll use our experience reading the crowd to determine the best way to incorporate requests that will enhance your event, with the end result being a great reception and many pleased guests.
Can I submit a “Do Not Play” list?
Yes – that may be the most important information you provide! Sometimes it’s easier to start with a “Do Not Play” list so you can get a better vision of what you are looking to hear during your event.
Can I meet with you before booking?
Of course! In fact, we strongly suggest it. This gives us a chance for us to get to know you, and for you to do the same. During our meeting, we’ll be honest and forthcoming in answering all of your questions so you can feel confident in what we can do for you. However, even without a personal visit you will still get the same great service and attention to detail you’d expect.
Will you emcee during the event as well?
We will make announcements and introductions for all of the major segments of your event. Just like our music performance, our announcements will be kept professional and classy, and the number of announcements will be minimal. If you’re looking someone more interactive – singing, performing routines and the like – we’re not the right company for you.
Who will be the DJ at our event?
The DJ you meet with will act as the DJ/MC at your event – no surprises. If there is ever an emergency or unforeseen circumstance that arises, we provide a complete backup plan to ensure you event will go on without a hitch. While some larger companies will try to convince you that more DJs are better than one, we believe that one great DJ will beat out two or more mediocre DJs any day.
Can I see you perform in person?
For public events, we welcome the opportunity to say hi and watch us perform in person. However, we respectfully do not invite clients for several reasons. First, as each event is custom-tailored and unique to each client, the performance style we provide to one client may not be ideal for another. In addition, inviting potential clients to private events distracts us from focusing and dedicating our efforts on the event itself. If a DJ offers you to visit someone else’s event, most likely they will invite strangers to yours.
Can you provide music for our ceremony and/or cocktail hour?
Certainly! We have provided both ceremony and cocktail hour music for many of our clients. Just like with your wedding reception, we’ll sit down with you to discuss your music preferences and come up with a detailed itinerary to cover all of your needs from start to finish.
Do you play ethnic music at events?
We don’t specialize in one particular genre, but we have performed Arabic, Jewish, Armenian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian and Spanish weddings in the past. If you want to supply us with any particular songs, we’ll be happy to play them for you.
What do you wear to an event?
We dress conservatively and will easily fit in with your guests – suit, neutral dress shirt and tie. Nothing flashy, nothing gaudy and nothing inappropriate.
Do you have backup equipment?
Although we always bring backup equipment with us to each event, we have never experienced a malfunction because we purchase and regularly maintain professional gear.
How much time is required to set up?
We generally ask for a two-hour setup window for each event. More complex configurations (such as uplighting and multiple system setups) require additional setup time, and we’ll work with your venue to ensure we can make proper arrangements. There is no extra cost for our setup or breakdown time.
Do you take any breaks?
We provide a full, non-stop entertainment service. We don’t pause to take a break, ever.
Will you require a meal?
We don’t require meals as part of our performance, but we certainly appreciate the offer.
Do you hang any signs or banners?
NEVER. No signs, no business cards, no company name displayed on the video screens. We are there to work for you, not promote ourselves. We prefer to let our performance be its own advertisement.
Can we request additional time during the event?
If available, we can extend the duration of your event. Additional time is charged at an hourly rate.
How far do you travel?
We are available and love to travel anywhere. We can also accommodate destination weddings and events.
