Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Having been influenced as a DJ by turntablists, house DJs and live producers I incorporate a unique blending ability like no one else. Every DJ is different and we all have our own unique styles!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Not at all...we always try and incorporate all requests.
What is your usual attire?
Whatever our clients prefer is what we wear. We try to match colors and look respectable for any event we are involved with.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Only if we can't find it with any of our sources for music, but 99% of the time, we are able to find what you need.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We work with many DJs - through the associations we are a part of, we see many of them in action regularly.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Typically 3 hours, but we've had a few 2 hour events, too.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Always.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
No. But we have been involved with Chinese, Indian, Hawaiian, Filipino, Mexican, French, German and Australian events!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes - via our planner form. We always reccomend 5-10 songs you absolutely do not want for your event and we do our best to avoid playing them!
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Check out our pricing and options page as we have many things we can help with: http://www.adamsdjservice.com/weddings.html
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?
2 hours for most weddings is adequate. Yes, we require a table with matching linen for each setup.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Only if we bring in more equipment. Depends on the event...
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Not at weddings!
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Emcee, yes. Talk between songs? Only the formal dances. During dancing, we mix songs together to keep the dance floor rocking.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Play a different song. It's all about the music for us and our clients. we play what you want and we have methods in place during our planning process to collect information about guests so we can play what they want, too. But that's ultimately up to the client to follow our process correctly to avoid this at their event.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We ask beforehand via our planner form if a meal is provided or not. If not, we simply pack a lunch and eat it when we can. If one is provided, we eat when and where appropriate. (If Buffet style, we eat last!)
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Music is always playing...we never break from playing music at your event, that would ruin the soundtrack we have planned with you!
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We always have a backup DJ available any given day.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Very rarely. Never again will I personally DJ two weddings in a single day.
What is your overtime rate?
$100 per hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Not unless it's more than 100 miles away.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Minimally $300 will secure any event with us.

Adam is awesome! He was great to work with in defining what type of music we wanted and making suggestions. During our reception the air conditioner died and the room had a wall of windows facing the sun so we were melting. He helped accelerate our timeline so we could head onto the patio and even moved all of his equipment into another room when the party moved onto the patio and then back into the room once we hit the restricted hours for music and the a/c happened to be fixed. It was great!

Adam was amazing! From the first conversation we had til the night of the wedding, he was professional but easy to talk to, went beyond his dutiess and really wanted to get to know us as a couple. Adam first met with just me, we went over my budget and came up with a plan that was right for us and our wedding. Adam was always quick to respond to emails and questions.

What put Adam above the rest was when he came to our house to meet with us and finalize plans before the wedding. He usually prefers to meet with people "in thier element" at home. He came over and met our dog (like he had a choice with a lab who loves to lick). He had a great way of getting to know our individual music tastes and come up with a music set that would work for both of us. He made this process fun and non-stressful (something that I was worried about). Knowing our personalities he made suggestions until we had a plan.

At our wedding rehearsal, he was professional, introducing himself and asking questions when needed of our officient, planner and my parents. He checked in often with Rob and I during the wedding about the tempo of events and reminding us of things coming next. We really appreciated all his attention to detail and also his friendliness to our guests.

Adam was very professional. I didn't have to worry at all about the music or sound system at my wedding, and that was my goal. Whenever I noticed what song was playing, it was one that we had told Adam that we liked. Everything went smoothly, our guests had a great time, and we had a great time.

Adam was everything we had hoped he would be, and more. When we first agreed to have him DJ our wedding, we didn't know what to think. It is very hard to see what a DJ is capable of because there is really no way to view how they perform at a wedding prior to booking them. Adam on the other hand, allowed us to attend a wedding prior to booking him and it helped with our decision. Our wedding was everything we had hoped it would be. My husband and I wanted a party atmosphere and that is exactly what we got. Our wedding was a blast and it all started with Adam and how he felt the crowds energy. There was never a dull moment and it was a great time--talk about a dance party! All of our guests are still talking about how it was the best/most fun wedding they have attended. Both my husband and I would definitely recommend Adam to any couple looking for a DJ. He went above and beyond our expectations.

We think Adam did a fantastic job and are so glad we hired him. Everything from the pre-planning meetings to the actual event went off wonderfully. We really appreciated the time he took to go over all of the songs we wanted played, our event timeline, and other special requests. His ability to adapt to two locations (one with no power!) and very different vibes was so appreciated! We also loved how he could sense the mood on the dance floor and adjusted his playlists as people liked/didn't like certain songs. I never once worried about what was going on, and all his pre-planning questions and suggestions made the event a cinch. Plus the pre-planning meetings were fun :)

Adam is the best there is when speaking about a wedding DJ. I was stressed out while trying to find a DJ for my wedding, but Adam eased all my anxiety when he showed up for our initial meeting. He is very organized, professional, fun, focused, experienced, and makes sure you are getting exactly what you want for your day. You won't need a wedding planner if you hire Adam for your DJ. He helps coordinate your events if you want his help and will work behind the scenes with the wedding staff to make sure everything gets taken care of. He has great attention to detail and makes the entire night stress-free and entertaining. You won't be disappointed. I would definitely recommend Adam to DJ any event.

Adam was awesome from the first time we met with him. It was an easy decision. You could tell he had a lot of experience and knew what he was doing. He drove all the way up to our house in traffic to meet with us and discuss what we wanted. He was full of ideas and was always responsive to emails or calls. He did great on our wedding day with requests and helped with the flow of things. Great choice for a wedding DJ! Thanks Adam.

Adam was so amazing through out the entire process! He was always very prompt in getting back to me when ever we called or emailed! He makes the entire process fun and easy! He even came out to our house for our last planning meeting! He is fun to work with has a great sense of humor! He made the entire night flow sooo smoothly! The songs we really wanted played he made sure and played them he had everyone out on the dance floor. He also did an amazing job with the up lighting he matched the coral color perfectly (which was a hard color to perfect) and even did extra lighting for us! Overall we give him a 10 out of 10 and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to have an amazing night! Thanks Adam for everything!

We couldn't be happier with the service we received from Adam! Adam has DJ'ed at both of our daughter's Bat Mitzvah Celebrations, and both time he did a fantastic job! Each celebration was held in a different venue (one outside, one in a concrete and glass social hall with high ceilings), the sound was perfect each time! - loud enough to be "fun" but not so loud as to make it so that you couldn't have a conversation. The social hall, where the acoustics are really a challenge and scared us into almost not holding the event there, NEVER sounded better! Each girl has a different style, and Adam was able to accommodate their taste in music and lighting to create an event that was truly special for each of them. Adam was gracious when teens came up with requests and still honored our (the parents') request to keep the songs "clean" by playing edited versions of songs. On top of all of that, Adam just could not be a nicer guy! He is easy to work with and professional. I will always recommend Adam fist to anyone who is looking for a DJ service. He creates a musical and lighting style that fits the person(s) being celebrated vs. inserting his style into your event.

Adam is AMAZING. I researched pretty much every DJ in Seattle when we began planning for our wedding and he stood out early on. He was the first one to return my call, and really seemed to want to work with me to understand what I wanted, try to fit my budget, etc. He was super friendly, professional, and clearly knew what he was doing. We hired him after a skype interview since we were out of town planners and he stayed in touch for the whole planning process, and later met with us for a multiple hour meeting in Seattle (came over to the house!) a few months before the wedding where we went over our timeline thoroughly. He was able to suggest the perfect songs to fill in any gaps where we couldn't pick a song, he put together an amazing slideshow for us that he took the trouble to even re-do when we decided to change pictures around, and then he shocked us on the day-of with some amazing uplighting for the reception that we absolutely LOVED. I had multiple picky requests for different announcements, timing of ceremony music, etc. etc. and they were all executed perfectly. He checked in with me every time we had to decide if we wanted to go off schedule during the evening. Everyone who attended the wedding said it was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding and we know Adam was a huge part of that. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a big party - a total blast. We are SO grateful for him and his help - it truly felt like he was a part of our team and wanted everything to go well as much as we did and that made all the difference. He knows a bunch of other vendors in the industry in Seattle and is well-liked, too; our coordinator had worked with him before and loved him so that was an added perk. We really did feel like we had a team on our side for the wedding. Love love love Adam...look no further guys, I've done SO much research picking out vendors. Adam is the way to go! Thank you!!!
