What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul, Swing
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Classy and understated, but extraordinarily knowledgeable about music. We know how to fill a dance floor without being cheesy or obnoxious. Brides and grooms love us because we don't try to be the center of attention.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Try to limit your list to 40 or 50 songs. Leave room for some requests by your guests because they'll be the ones dancing.
What is your usual attire?
Black tuxedo.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No. We can get them, though we're always happy to accommodate a bride and groom who want to bring some of their own music to the party.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Seven. And all of them have been with us for more than 20 years.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Typically, we start with five hours. But we can work shorter events.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely. Our web site makes it very simple to direct your DJ on exactly how you'd like your reception to go. And if you'd like to supplement that information with a face-to-face consultation, we're happy to arrange one.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes. We encourage it.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, including a full set of backup equipment.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer an optional special-effects dance floor light show, and optional dramatic uplighting. You can see both on our web site.
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?
We can usually set up in 30 minutes or less, though it takes longer to set up our light shows. We ask that the venue provide a table and a working electrical outlet near the dance floor.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
A small 8x11-inch placard with our company name and web site address. And it can be removed if you like.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We typically perform all professional emcee functions, like introducing the wedding party, announcing the cake-cutting, special dances, and garter and bouquet tosses. But once the dance music starts, we shut the microphone off. No one has ever danced to a DJ's voice.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Several ways. A slow song usually brings couples back to the floor. A proven dance song that appeals to women is always effective, and the men return when the floor is full of women. Plus, a smart DJ always keeps a popular line dance in reserve as a last resort. Even guests who don't normally dance will join the line dances, because they've seen them a thousand times, they know how to do them, and they feel more involved in the party.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Including your DJ for dinner is your decision. Just let us know in advance, so we can plan accordingly.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Once dancing starts, we don't take breaks. We go non-stop.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We always have a replacement DJ on call.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No.
What is your overtime rate?
We charge $75 per half hour after the first five hours. The money is payable to the DJ before the overtime performance begins.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We do not charge for travel. When you pay for five hours of music, the clock starts with the first note of music and ends with the last note.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$100

This review is for Jay and the deejay/emcee services he provided for our wedding ceremony and reception this month. Jay did an exceptional job not only executing the wedding as we requested but reassuring us that the entire evening ran smoothly. My husband and I were trying to do our wedding on a dime and "DIY" fashion. However, it meant a lot of uncertainties on our end for the "flow" of the evening as well as what to play to please our ecliptic group of friends and family.

From the get-go Jay was always quick to respond to calls and emails. He communicated clearly -- we never had any guess work or unwanted surprises or costs. We set up a time to meet in person, which I was skeptical about the necessity of doing so, but it was well worth it. I got to see the lights and equipment that he would be using and meeting in person allowed him to get a grasp of what my husband and I are like personally.

Do not be fooled by the mobility and compactness of his equipment because it did not compromise sound or quality. He moved from our ceremony room to reception in a matter of minutes and it didn't effect cocktail hour at all-- it was seamless! We had a live band fire RIGHT NEXT to our room in the wedding venue but his sound system masked our noisy neighbor. His lights are awesome too! Each light has a multitude of light choices-- he matched our wedding colors perfectly and then they changed to an array of colors for the dance floor when the time came.

Jay has a professional attitude and the voice to match -- his announcements and timing were perfect too. His experience helped guide us in the direction we needed. Between his own knowledge and the resources on his website he can answer any question you have about deejay and emcee services and expectation. If any family or friends in the Chicagoland area need a deejay or emcee, I would insist they use Fourth Estate Audio and aka for Jay!

We could not be happier with Jay at Fourth Estate Audio. He was so kind and professional. We got so many compliments from guests on every aspect of the music, from the ceremony to the dinner music (the dinner music was all selected by him) and once the dance floor opened for the night, he kept it full from the start until the lights came on. People did not want to leave! There was a very lengthy and complete selection of music to choose from, and he was very accommodating to any and all requests that the guests had. He also brought gorgeous up-lighting for the entire ballroom, which he adjusted as needed for the mood (soft amber for dinner and something a little more flashy once the dancing started). He helped direct the party to where it needed to go in order to ensure everyone had the time of their lives!

I have never been amazing at planning and so there were a few hiccups which once again, Jay was accommodating of. He made sure that I stayed relaxed and took care of any little details I had not accounted for. I was able to enjoy the day with my new husband and our family and friends. Jay took care of us and we will forever be grateful! I HIGHLY recommend Jay and Fourth Estate Audio!!!

Jay was our DJ for our wedding and I couldn't be happier. He was punctual, well dressed, polite, and interacted so wonderfully with our guests. He played the music we requested and even fit in a few guest requests. He kept everyone up and moving on the dance floor. During the dinner, the music created the perfect atmosphere. I will definitely be passing his contact information on to anyone who needs a DJ in the future. Thank you, Fourth Estate Audio, for helping make our wedding day so perfectly special.

Jay was amazing! We had a few strange music requests and Jay was accommodating and encouraged us to further customize our request list. His website allowed us to choose the genre and style of music all the way down to first, second, and third favorite choices. The music was jamming all night and Jay kept our guests dancing until the last minute. The DJ table was small and portable and he provided the most amazing up-lighting! We really couldn't have asked for more! Fourth Estate Audio was just perfect and added just the right touch to our wedding celebration.

Jay at Fourth Estate Audio was the ultimate professional from our introduction throughout the entire ceremony and reception. We could not have been more pleased with how everything was handled. The music was just as we had requested, with impeccable timing. We were from out of town, and getting in touch through e-mail and phone calls was a breeze. This was so easy with Jay at the helm. A great hire for any event, Fourth Estate Audio was terrific!

Jay's professionalism was apparent from our very first meeting, and his professionalism was only outdone by his desire for us to have the wedding reception of our dreams.

For us, it was important that all attendees felt like they had music to dance to, regardless of their age. Jay was the perfect DJ for that experience! We chose Fourth Estate Audio because of the reasonable prices and their commitment to making our reception a memorable experience for us and our guests. We are so glad we made this DJ choice, as Fourth Estate Audio gave us the perfect wedding reception.

Fourth Estate Audio was awesome!!! They had great organization and were excellent at moving the agenda along. As for Jay Congdon's talent, our ceremony music was perfect, he guided us and made our wedding run smoothly. He was really calm and really knew what he was doing. Something that my husband and I really appreciated. As for the reception, I should just say that there was literally people dancing from the moment the floor opened until our last song. The music was amazing ! To me, the music is the most important part of a wedding reception. While we gave him a very good idea of the kind of music we wanted him to play, we also made it clear that the guests and the vibe on the dance floor were the most important thing. He did a great job playing everything we wanted while also catering to the crowd. Everyone was talking about how great the music was, which made us very happy! He also surprised us with a wonderful set of pictures we did not expect.

Thank you very much Jay for helping to make our wedding as perfect as we dreamed.
