Do you have liability insurance?

Describe your DJ style:
We like to let the music itself create the energy and atmosphere at your wedding, after all your wedding should be focused on you and not on a DJ who talks a lot over your music. Due to the nature of weddings and having a varied age rang we usually play a generational mix of music from all different genres and decades that keep people moving and entertained.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Not at all! Just keep in mind with your requests that you should always consider what your guests, friends and family love to hear as well. Also we strongly suggest to work on your "do not play" list so we won't end up playing anything you don't want to hear. Anything you might think is cheesy or overplayed and if you're not sure just ask yourself a couple questions: will there be any young teen girls who are big into Justin Bieber? Do you want Gangnam Style to crash your party? :-)
What is your usual attire?
We normally wear black pants with a nice black polo shirt that has our names on them. If it's an outside wedding in sunshine we might wear a white polo shirt. We can adjust our attire to fit your tastes as well - anything from wearing a suit or tux to jeans and cowboy boots.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Not at all! Each song we legally purchase ends up as a tax deduction so it really ends up being free for us (after taxes of course). However if the requested song happens to be obscure or you want a specific live version then we might need some guidance or assistance if Google can't help us out.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We're a husband and wife team so only 2 - depending on which package you hire us for we'll either work as a DJ/MC team for your wedding or as a solo operator for your day which is great for couples on a budget and allows us to serve two weddings in one day. Either way it's a win-win for everyone.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We have no time restrictions with our packages - everything is all inclusive and we'll be there for as long or as little as you would like us for.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes and we prefer if we can meet at your venue during our initial meeting, this way we can focus not only on getting to know each other and your music tastes but also what your vision is for your wedding. With each wedding having different events being able to visually see where these events will happen at your venue will help with the overall flow of your celebration, plus we can confirm the appropriate sound and lighting system to use.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
While we aren't as familiar with ethnic music we do have a wide variety of it (the majority being latin/spanish music) and will be more than happy to educate ourselves on the music and customs of a culture in order to pull off an ethnic or international wedding tailored to your tastes.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes - this is highly encouraged!
Do you bring your own equipment?
We provide all of our own equipment along with backup equipment, this way if our main system happens to fail we can keep going with our backup system and there won't be any awkward pauses. We also have battery powered loudspeakers that we bring at no additional charge to give you peace of mind knowing that there will be music no matter what happens.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer a variety of LED effect lights, uplighting and accent lighting which we can go over during our consultation with you.
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?
Depending on your selected package and how equipment is loaded in setup can be anywhere from 1 hour to 2 hours. Hiring us as a DJ/MC team cuts this time down in half. It is always nice if the venue itself has a table and linens we can use, however if not we have our own 6 foot banquet tables that we provide with either black or white linens.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Only if you plan on having us setup a projector and projector screen at your event, otherwise we can cram into any spot that's available - which a lot of times is necessary!
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Never - this is your wedding and the focus should be completely on you, not on us! The only time people should be looking at us is if they're requesting a song or if people are simply admiring our setup. We work with you to create unforgettable memories, not to advertise at your wedding. That's what business cards are for :-)
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We always emcee at your wedding and do everything from announcing your grand entrance to excusing tables for the buffet line, encouraging people to participate in the bouquet and garter toss, last call at the bar and your grand exit. We rarely talk in between songs as we focus on mixing and blending music together to keep you and your guests moving and celebrating, if we need to make an important announcement (car lights are on, grab to go boxes to help take home food, etc.) we do our best to simply lower the volume of the music at a good spot and announce then.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We motivate people in several ways - first by encouraging everyone to come out to the dance floor and join in on your wedding celebration. We will also use songs that are interactive or line dances (unless on the "do not play" list) such as "YMCA," "Electric Slide," "Conga," "Boot Scootin Boogie," "Cha Cha Slide," "Cupid Shuffle," "Thriller," "Gangnam Style," etc. which we find really helps get people on the dance floor. If hired as a husband and wife team this easily gives one of us the ability to DJ while the other can help demonstrate these dances to you and your guests. Another trick we use is to do a slow song - everyone likes dancing to those (especially at weddings!) and right afterwards go into something more upbeat like "Party Rock Anthem."
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We never take breaks at your wedding aside from if we have to use the restroom, which if we do then we put our DJ program into auto-play mode while we're gone. Usually we're back before the song playing is even over but it's always safe to have a couple of songs cued up. A meal is always welcomed as we are on our feet most of the time and if you count the time loading up our vehicle, driving to your venue, setting up, performing, tearing down, driving home and unloading everything our average work time can be 10-12 hours or more. We always provide snacks and drinks with us so there is no pressure on providing a meal, however if you do then we will be best friends :-)
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Absolutely - our mixing program comes with an auto-mix feature which is basically a more advanced version of playing an iTunes playlist.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
While this has never happened before we are connected to several other DJ's throughout the state along with friends and family who could help in short notice if one of us received an injury that would prevent us from setting everything up by ourselves. As a husband and wife team a bonus is if you only book one of us and an emergency happened, the other person would be able to come in and save your wedding! We will always put our clients first and if an emergency arises we'll make sure your wedding is covered, event if it costs us in the long run.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
We only book one wedding each day on an individual basis, so you have us for your whole day.
What is your overtime rate?
No need to worry about overtime as all of our packages include as much time as you would like.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Travel is already included in all of our packages. However if you're planning on a destination wedding that's over 300 miles away then we'll have to arrange something :-)
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
50% of your total - this amount will vary depending on your selected package. We can always be flexible with your deposit if needed.

DJ Stoltz Records was amazing to work with! David and Hannah worked as a husband and wife team for our wedding and helped out with troubleshooting our slideshow, made recommendations for music along with how our schedule should flow for our wedding. They even attended our rehearsal to time our ceremony music and was friendly throughout the entire process. If I know other people who are getting married I'll definitely be sending them referrals because it would be a treat to watch them perform again!

David was fantastic to work with! We met 1 time several months before the event and discussed our music tastes and on the night of the event it was as if he was playing from my personal collection! He was easy to communicate with via email and was on time if not early for rehearsal and the wedding. We will use his services again! Thank you David! Great job!

DJ Stoltz was one of the best DJ's I've ever worked with. He was extremely accommodating, flexible and our day went off without a hitch!!! David is really a master of his craft and kept our guests shaking their groove thangs all night long, he even played some house/electronic music which we love. We could not have picked a better company. Thank you so much!

Thank you so much Stephanie! I had a lot of fun too and definitely enjoyed being able to mix in some electronic music, it always helps when we have similar tastes in music :-) Congrats again and hope you'll cherish those memories as you two move forward in life!

Dj Stoltz was an outstanding DJ for our wedding! We are so happy that we found David! He was able to do our ceremony outside and by the time we were inside for the reception he already had music playing and was ready for the wedding party to make our entrance. Not only did he help make everything run smoothly, we had the best reception ever. People were dancing the entire night. Many people have told me that our wedding was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding! We have DJ Stoltz to thank for that. He played great music and made it a fantastic night to remember for us all. Not only did he do a GREAT job he was VERY reasonably priced! I feel entertainment is super importaint if you want people to have a good time and he did just that but for a price much less then other DJ's were charging around this area. I would highly reccomend him for any event!

David did an excellent job, both in helping us prepare (timeline, song selection, etc.) and in execution the day of the event. He communicated well, was professional, punctual, accommodating, and set up, took down and performed with no hassles or problems. We were very pleased, and we would definitely recommend him to friends and any other couples out there!

David dj stoltz was great!! He was very professional, fun and responsive. He kept the flow going great and had some awesome song choices. He was very flexible and stuck with our timeline unless we told him otherwise. Our guests commented on how great he was and everyone had a blast. I never thought the dancefloor would be so popular, but he did a great job of getting everyone in the dancing mood. Thanks again David! You helped make our day amazing!

DJ Stoltz Records was absolutely awesome. Planning a wedding is really hard work. There's meeting with this person and that person and then follow up meetings so I was very relieved that we were able to do all of our planning through e-mails which he replied to right away. He was there with suggestions as I asked for them and always seemed like he was genuinely happy to help. We all got very hot inside at our reception and he did everything he could to get our music pumping outside and totally made our night that much better. I don't think I could have been any happier if we had gone with anyone else. DJ Stoltz Records made all the difference at our wedding. Thank you!!

I found David on the Knot. He was recommended as a great and inexpensive DJ. We called him and found that he was much, much lower priced than the others in town and we went ahead and booked him. He turned out to be fantastic! I sent him a list of songs and every song on that list was played. He also served as the MC and did a terrific job. David is awesome and I would highly recommend him for any event!

We hired David (DJ Stoltz) after considering several DJ's in the region. We spoke to one of his references and the pricing was very competitive. Our wedding was in August, but I think we decided on him in the Feb/March time frame. David was easy to work with. For us, Oregon was a destination wedding so most of our communications was done via e-mail and phone. He was very flexible in terms of how we chose to engage.
If you have an exact list of songs, he can execute on that. If you just sort of now that you'd like a bit of pop most people in their 30's would like, he can execute on that. We needed him to bring 2 sound systems, which he did. He also provided some simple lights for the dance floor and extra mikes for the Reverend and for a speech by the Best Man. David showed up in plenty of time and was set up appropriately.
He worked with our requests and added a lot of his own and it was a really great day. We have no hesitation recommending DJ Stoltz.

David is a wonderful DJ. I would recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a professional, responsive, and knowledgeable DJ. I planned our wedding myself, and even when everything got a little chaotic, David was patient and was always so friendly. He was recommended to me by one of my best friends, and I am happy to say he helped make our wedding unforgettable.

David was amazing! He traveled from Eugene to Bend to DJ at our December wedding. My husband and I have never really had a special song together (Well that was appropriate for a wedding) so we told him to basically choose. He chose a great variety of songs that I was more than impressed with! My family and friends still talk about "the awesome music guy" and the guitar hero was a big hit! Thanks again!
