Many types of lighting and effect options are offered that can be included as part of your quote.
How will the DJ be dressed?
The DJ will be dressed in a style appropriate to your event such as a tux, suit, business casual or themed, dressed neat, appropriate and professional.
What kind of sound equipment do you use?
All of our equipment is new and state-of-the-art. A combination of digital music and computers are used. My sound systems match the requirements of your event. When necessary, I can provide multiple sound systems. Mac based computers and software, plus high quality cables, components and connectors.
Will we be able to use your sound system for toasts, etc.?
Absolutely. I offer hand-held or stand-held microphones for your toasts, blessings, readings or other announcements that you or your guests wish to make.
What kind of lighting equipment do you use?
Our lighting fixtures are a combination of conventional and LED. Up lighting, dance floor wash, custom monogram and pin spotting as well as white and multicolored ball and bank lighting.
May I see my DJ perform before I decide?
At a private wedding or event, no. However, when the DJ is performing in public such as a sports event or local club, it's possible. Also, you can meet your DJ ahead of time.
Can I pick the music for my event?
Of course! It's your event and the music is important on your special day. I'll work with you to ensure we have all your "must plays" as well as your "do not plays". From classical to contemporary, the music is as individual as you are. We also welcome any specialty music you provide. And of course we take requests, if you choose.
How much time is required to set up and break down your equipment?
Typically for a music only event, the DJ arrives an hour before your start time. The DJ sets up and familiarizes himself with the layout of the venue and performs a sound check. The DJ will touch base with the caterer, photographer and any other vendors you've included. Normally, we need about 30 to 45 minutes to break down and load out. For large events with lighting, multiple sound systems, TV screens or effects, a longer time is needed for the breakdown.
Do you offer free consultations?
Absolutely! I am available to meet with you for a no cost, no obligation consultation. I will answer all your questions and explain services. Plus, I am available for all follow up meetings, phone calls and email. Every event is unique and is specifically tailored to suit your personality and style.
Do you require a deposit / retainer?
Yes. To reserve your date and DJ, I require a $150 non-refundable retainer. The balance is due seven (7) days before your event.
Do you provide references?
Yes! I take great pride in my level of service to clients and will gladly provide references for you to check.
