Do you have liability insurance?

Describe your DJ style:
Totally client orientated. Can be low key in the background or high energy depending on client's wishes. My objective is to always to have the Bride and Groom as the center of attention, not the DJ.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No
What is your usual attire?
Depending on the event, casual to Black Tux.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Only if for some reason I have exhausted my resources and I still cannot find the song.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Single operator
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Two Hours

Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes
Do you bring your own equipment?
I bring my own equipment plus back up equipment to every event.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
I have some up 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?
30 minutes to set up. I bring my own table if Caterer does not have one.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, I consider it tacky at weddings.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I host/emcee the event but I keep the chatter down or off between songs.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Try a slow dance followed up with a very popular fast dance.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I work all the way through the event with no breaks. Client does not have to provide a meal.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I network with 40 other dj's in a DJ organization for backup.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No.
What is your overtime rate?
$75.00 to $125.00 per additional hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
$25.00 additional if the drive time is over one hour.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$100.00 deposit, with balance due at the event.

Where to start? I got married this past September and Joe Dj-ed our wedding. But Joe has also done all 3 of my sisters wedding and a cousins wedding. They were all so amazing we keep asking him to do more.

My husband and I were a little indecisive of things at first, and took a while to finalize things. But Joe was patient with us the whole time and extremely responsive to all my questions/requests.

On the day of he was great. We went over things one more time to make sure it was all perfect and he had it just the way we wanted it. After we had gone through the ceremony and dinner and everything it was getting later than I had pictured, and we asked Joe if he could stay another hour. He was more than happy to do so and it was a perfect way to end the night.

I can't say enough good things about Joe, I recommend him to everyone since we have essentially been working together for many years at this point :)

We love Joe the DJ

Joe was such an important part of our wedding! From our first appointment with him to the night of our wedding he was responsive, polite and professional. The night went seamlessly according to the lineup we created with Joe before the wedding. My husband and I threw Joe a last minute curve ball regarding announcing our families into the reception and he was flexible and nobody knew we changed our minds at the last minute. You will not regret booking Joe and DeSantis Entertainment!

Joe did an AMAZING job at our wedding! Many of our guests commented on his ability to engage guests of all different ages. He brought 2 systems (one for cocktail hour & the other for the the reception) so that music was streamed through out our event. He pulled me aside at one point to verify a few song requests which I really appreciated because some of the choices were "interesting" :) The dance floor was packed and Joe even agreed to go a bit longer because everyone was having so much fun. I HIGHLY recommend this vendor!!
