We have all types of genres of music with a database of 20,000 songs that grows every month. We have all the new music that are Radio Edits.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No. We usually suggest that you give us a song list of the most important songs that you would like to hear during the night and let us also mix in songs that will keep everyone on the dance floor.
What is your usual attire?
Always suit and tie!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No. We can obtain just about any song and we will let you know if we are unable to get it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
currently D and R has 6 professional DJ's.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! We prefer this. We want our bride and groom to feel comfortable with their DJ.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We have Dj'ed for many ethnic weddings and feel very comfortable with any specific needs.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes, in fact this is a standard question we ask during the consultation.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes! and also back up equipment including 2 laptops.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We do offer specialty up lighting and Gobo lighting effects. All weddings include standard dance lighting.
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 require 1 hour for set up and tear down and prefer an 8 foot skirted table that matches the table linens.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Only when necessary. We are interactive but believe in NOT going over the top.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We don't believe in "pulling" guests on the dance floor, so we feel the crowd and using our 22 years of experience will get people on the dance floor.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We don not take breaks, and we do require the client to provide a meal unless discussed prior to the booking.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We have never missed or have been late to any event in 22 years but if this was to happen, we have 3 DJ's with D and R, and i have 3 other companies that I can call on if this was to occur, which has never!
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
What is your overtime rate?
150.00 per half hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
not generally, we will add extra charges up front for an event that is more than an hour drive.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
At least 200.00 which does reduce the final balance.

Damon was very pleasant to work with. He was prompt and accommodating to our microphone needs during the ceremony. However, he played the wrong song for our Father/Daughter dance in spite of having responded via email that he had received the change. Also, in an attempt to get people out on the dance floor at the beginning of the night, he made up a story about me and my husband requesting everyone out there, etc... Which was not true. We were caught off guard during this and uncomfortable not knowing what to expect. Read less
