INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Swing
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Low-key/Conservative, Moderate, or High Profile. It depends on the needs of the client. Most of my clients request Low-key/Conservative or Moderate.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Generally, I play 15 to 20 songs per hour and play songs in genre sets - figure on having 75 to 100 songs played during an average event. I include a section on the planning sheets for requests, but clients can also e-mail me their play list in a spreadsheet if they choose. I do need client requests at least 3 weeks before their event so I can research my library and pull music.
What is your usual attire?
Full tux for all weddings and private events. Clients must notify me in writing if they want me to wear something other than a tux.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
It depends - chances are I have it in my library of over 75,000 titles. If it's an obscure title, there's a good chance the client has it and can bring it along.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I work alone and I don't subcontract any employees. I own the company and clients deal with me exclusively from start to finish.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
All wedding packages cover up to 4 hours of performance time. Additional performance time is billed out by the half-hour.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes - I offer preliminary consults so brides can meet me prior to signing a contract.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Yes - over the years, I have done a variety of ethnic weddings.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes - our planning sheets have a "do-not-play list" section. Most of my clients put line dances on the do-not-play list - I'll only play them if they are specifically requested and/or allowed by the client.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes - I bring all my own equipment.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
I have a wireless mic for blessings, toasts, and speeches and I have a remote (2nd) set-up for ceremonies and/or cocktail periods held in a different room - this is all included in your package. I do not provide uplighting - I leave that expertise to professional event lighting companies. If you require uplighting, I'll gladly refer you to a company that services your area.
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?
I arrive around 60 minutes prior to the contracted start time in order to set-up. There are times when I arrive earlier, depending on the venue location and load-in requirements. I require a skirted table and chair near an outlet.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Not really - just that the table is about 6 foot long.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No - this is the client's event and it would be disrespectful and unprofessional for any vendor to advertise while working.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I emcee and make any necessary announcements.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Generally I read the crowd and play music the crowd can dance to. This is discussed at the consult because the bride and groom may request certain songs that are not conducive to dancing. If I sense that the crowd is getting tired from dancing, I'll put on a slow dance set as a change up.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Meals are not required, but they are appreciated.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
I don't take breaks, but if I need to be away from my dj table, I will still have music playing.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I'm a member of BADJA and network with other DJs. I have guarantees that are built into your contract.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
In order to give my clients the necessary time and resources, I only perform one event per day.
What is your overtime rate?
If overtime is needed, then performance time beyond 4 hours is billed out by the half-hour. Please visit our website for actual rates.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
All travel costs are included in the price of your wedding package.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
A 50% installment and signed contract are required to book our services. The balance is due with the planning sheets at least 3 weeks before your event. Booking requests made within 6 weeks of the event date aren't eligible for the installment option - those bookings must be paid in full.

If you're on the hunt for DJ that is talented, professional, friendly, funny, and kind--look no further! We found Vern using weddingwire.com and he received top-notch ratings from over 90+ reviews. Now I know why. From our very first email exchange and in-person meeting with Vern, he proved himself to be organized, experienced, thoughtful, and EXTREMELY interested in making the music experience for our wedding EXACTLY how we wanted it. Our emails with questions or ideas were always responded to promptly, and even days before our wedding when we had to make adjustments, Vern made everything come together.

Not only did Vern provide impeccable planning and coordination before the wedding, he created the best possible atmosphere and implementation of our plan during the wedding day. Our goal was to have EVERYONE dancing (our friends, our family, grandparents, etc.) during our reception, and Vern created the perfect mix and timing of modern songs and older songs, fast songs and slow songs. We even did a surprise mash-up dance after my father-daughter dance, and Vern kept everything running smoothly.

Oh, and did I mention that he's an excellent MC? He double-checked the pronunciation of everyone's names in our wedding party (all 16 of them), made the announcements for toasts, dinner, cake-cutting, and sparkler exit, and even gave us a CD with 11 memorable songs from our wedding day.

I really can't emphasize enough just how happy and satisfied you will be if you choose Vern (DJGREYHOUND) for you wedding (or any other event). I give him my highest recommendation.

Good music is essential to a great party. Vern did an impeccable job at our wedding reception. He accommodated all of our requests, and remained loyal to the genres that we had submitted during planning. He was also able to read our crowd and improvise to ensure that everyone remained dancing. There was not one moment during our reception that the dance floor was empty. He managed the schedule of events as we had planned and also was flexible enough to handle all requests that were presented by the bride and wedding party. Dj Greyhound played an intricate part in creating a outstanding and incredibly fun wedding reception.

Vern was simply fantastic! We received a huge number of complements from guests on the music, and he handled introductions for toasts and other things perfectly (including mastering the pronunciation of some difficult foreign names). Otherwise he largely stayed out of the way, playing perfect, well-transitioned music so that everyone could have a great time, without being a distraction. I originally wanted to use a band rather than a DJ, but I could not be more pleased with Vern and our choice to use him. He was a large part of the reason that our wedding was so successful.

As greyhound lovers and owners, DJ Greyhound was the obvious first choice for our DJ, based on the name alone. And then, Vern's brilliant attention to detail, solid preparation in choosing music, catering to our specific and slightly different needs, and rocking the party all night made it EVEN BETTER. He offered great suggestions to specific parts of our wedding and made sure all our requests were answered. Everyone had a great time and he fit into our greyhound-themed wedding, perfectly.

Vern was the DJ for our wedding in Alexandria in April, which was a small event with about 50 guests. Vern did a wonderful job. We were very pleased with his work. We felt that everything went smoothly, and all the transitions (intro of bride & groom, first dance, etc.) were done just as we asked. Vern asked us for a list of "do not play" songs in advance, and when one guest requested a similar song to one on our list he asked our permission before playing it. And, of note, Vern's price was considerably lower than several other DJs we contacted. Overall, he was very professional, did a wonderful job on our special day, and provided a great value. We would gladly recommend Vern to anyone looking for a DJ in the future.

DJ Greyhound contributed an essential part to our reception. Everyone had a great time. I gave him little direction and still all my guests had a great time. He is good at reading a crowd and follows your directions and manages them according to exactly what you request - either on the big day or during the planning stage.

Friends and family commented to us that it was the best wedding they had been to in a while, partly due to the amazing DJ Greyhound.

Vern was awesome. He's very professional and easy to deal with. He's not into high pressure sales tactics or telling you how your reception should be. He listened to exactly what we wanted and absolutely nailed it. We talked through exactly the type of music and style of DJ that we wanted and we confirmed everything the week before. He showed up on time and kept the party moving just like we asked. At the end of the night, we got a ton of compliments on the DJ. We could not have been happier. We highly recommend DJ Greyhound.

We used DJGreyhound (Vern) at my daughter's wedding at Woodend in Chevy Chase, MD. Vern was great! He really knows the venue and came early and was all set up and ready to go during cocktail hour after the ceremony. We got tons of compliments on the music and dancing - his choices were great. He also worked with my daughter and her fiance throughout the process to play everything they wanted to hear and also gave them a custom CD he made at the end of the reception. I worked directly with him by email prior to the wedding in secret from my daughter, because we had made a Father/Daughter dance slideshow that she did not know about. Vern took the CD from us when we first arrived, and took over from there getting the TV/DVD player set up and ready, and playing the slideshow at just the right time. He couldn't have been more helpful. He is very reasonably priced as well and gives you 5 hours for his price - many only give 4. I would highly recommend him!

DJ Greyhound is a consummate professional and was one of the easiest vendors to work with. We carefully vetted our other vendors and compared other options once we met Vern in person we knew right away that he was the one for us. We were happy to avoid having to meet other DJs and were confident that he would get the job done. He is priced competitively and provides 2 musical setups so that you can have music in 2 areas of the venue (e.g., ceremony and reception). He has a great selection of music, solid equipment, and is responsive and punctual. Other DJs seemed more expensive, pushy, and difficult to work with which was not our experience with DJ Greyhound at all. He provides documentation to ensure that all your questions are answered and makes you think about timelines and the music well ahead of time in the planning process before you are overwhelmed by other details. It was important to us to keep our wedding focused on family and have the DJ be low-key rather than the over-the-top DJs you often get at hotel receptions. Vern was happy to go with the flow and always had a wireless microphone available for all the speeches and announcements by the groom, best man, father of bride, etc. Most importantly, if you want a crowded dance floor at the end of the night, DJ Greyhound delivers. Are you still reading this? Seriously, just book him already!

Hire this DJ!! To be honest, I did not spend a lot of time looking for or interviewing DJs as I was working full time and going to law school part time while trying to plan the wedding. I hired DJ Greyhound after only a phone interview without even meeting him because (1) his rates were really reasonable; (2) he already had good reviews; and (3) I liked that he donated some of his proceeds to a good cause. He was also incredibly flexible with the set-up at my reception. My venue had 3 floors - cocktails on the first floor, dinner on the second floor, and dancing on the third floor. He used his main system on the first floor and his second system on the second floor. During dinner he moved his main system up to the third floor to be ready for dancing. And he didn't charge extra for bringing the second system! His music selections all night were spot on. He had my guests dancing the ENTIRE night - seriously the dance floor was never empty. And our venue let us stay later than planned, so he stayed later as well with no complaints. At the end of the night, he gave us a CD with all of our wedding songs on it.

Vern was such a great choice for our wedding. We met up with him months befor our wedding to discuss what we wanted and more importantly what we didn't want based on our friends and family attending. Vern understood where we were coming from. He had the foresight to mention that the song we selected for our first dance was long and if we wanted to cut it short all he needed was a look for a nice tasteful fade. The day of the wedding Vern was not over the top except where it was needed (our introduction), kept the volume to where everyone had no need to shout to talk to one another, orchestrated all the toasts...and some extra toasts, and kept the music pumping to entertain both dancers and non dancers alike. We would love to hire Vern again but we both agree that our wedding was perfect and could ever be duplicated. We can't thank him enough! He is the best! PS- We were especially touched by the custom CD he made for us.

DJ Greyhound emceed our wedding in May and we were so happy with his services. He is such a cool, classy guy and always has such a reassuring demeanor. His price point was even a little less than some other DJs we interviewed, and his contract terms were incredibly fair and generous compared to others. On the day of, we had to move our ceremony inside at the last minute, and he didn't skip a beat rearranging things and accommodating the new set up. So many guests complemented us on our music and his announcing style, and he did a great job keeping the dance floor packed. He also made us a CD of some of our wedding music to take home at the end of the night. We would most definitely recommend DJ Greyhound to others.

He was extremely responsive and professional in all the lead-up to the event and played all the music that we requested- he also took requests from the floor (which we had previously indicated was fine) and the guests loved it!

We contacted Vern about setting up a meeting for our wedding and had time set up later that week. He immediately impressed us with his laid-back style and enthusiasm for what he does. He walked us through the contract and answered all of our questions. Prior to the wedding, Vern helped us to organize our timeline for our reception. Vern had the best contract of any of our vendors, including moneyback clauses in the event of a no-show to keep us at ease. We are glad that Vern showed, though, because he kept our guests on the dance floor all night long. We requested party music, with very few specific requests, and Vern made all the right choices. We got so many compliments on our DJ and we would hire or refer him in an instant. If you want your guests dancing all night long, DJ Greyhound is the way to go.

Vern was a very friendly, professional DJ! He wasn't one of those over the top, cheesy acts. He played most of the songs we asked for (let's be honest though, we love so many songs that there just arent enough hours in the day to listen to them all) and even gave us a CD with some special songs.

The only thing I wished for was the music and announcements to be a little louder. Don't get me wrong, the music was plenty loud on the dance floor, which was perfect! However, I wished I could've heard cake cutting etc announcements a little better. Hmm, maybe it was because I had so many people to talk to. Perhaps I should've had a headset :-) Other than that, Vern was spectacular! He made our ceremony and reception very magical!

Vern was hands down the most professional, organized, detail oriented vendor there ever existed. I didn't have to worry about a thing with him. He took the initiative to call and make sure that he knew exactly what we wanted. I knew after the first time I met him that I wouldn't have any trouble with him. He was set up and ready to go by the time all the guests arrived and through the playlist we sent him, he was able to gauge the kind of music we wanted played and every single song played that night was a hit!! If I had to do it all over again, Vern would be the first person I would rehire.

Thanks again, Vern!!!! =)=)

Dj Greyhound was an amazing dj! He was very responsive and flexible all throughout our wedding planning, and he was willing to meet with us in person on multiple occassions to discuss our reception music. Vern was incredibly nice, and when the staff at our venue did not have things ready for us, Vern stepped in and helped to make sure that everything flowed smoothly. He also kept us aware throughout the day of when different events would take place, such as the cake cutting and garter toss.
Vern made sure that he played every song that we requested. At one point in the day, a guest stepped on my dress and it ripped. So that I wouldn't miss out on any songs that I wanted to dance to, Vern played some classic, go-to songs that everyone knew. I was so grateful for this.
If you are looking for an affordable, flexible, and kind dj, DJ Grehound is your guy! We couldnt have asked for a better DJ!

We are so thankful we found Vern. We planned our own wedding and Vern was one of the few aspects we never questioned or worried about. From the moment we first got in touch he was so professional and so clearly competent. He handled our mic and music needs for the outdoor ceremony, quickly switched to a second location for the outdoor cocktail hour, and then moved over to the larger setup in the reception hall he had established earlier in the day. We already felt good about Vern and our feelings were confirmed when we heard several of our guests exclaiming to others how great the playlist was. And he did a great job of reading the crowd--the dance floor was never empty. Vern was great to work with and the best choice we could have made for a DJ.

Working with Vern at DJ Greyhound DJ Services was one of the best choices we made when choosing our endless list of vendors! I am a softie for animals and rescue, and learning that Vern donates to Greyhound rescue immediately got him to the top of my list when I was in the interview process of my list of DJs. After speaking with Vern on the phone, I felt that he really had a wonderful grasp on the type of reception my husband and I were trying to create. He did not disappoint! He was extremely professional, dressed very well, stuck to our requests, played what we had requested, and didn't play songs we put on our do not play list- despite guests asking him to! He kept everyone on the dance floor all night long- and I mean everyone- grandmas, aunts, uncles, you name it! Everyone told us what an amazing time they had, and I know we owe quite a lot of that compliment to Vern. Thanks for making it so fun and special for everyone!

DJ Greyhound (Vern) did a great job at our wedding. He really listened to what we wanted out of a dj and executed upon it flawlessly. He gave suggestions where we needed help and really worked with us. Our wedding was a distance away from where he lives and he never hesitated in the least bit to meet us at the venue ahead of time to cover logistics. We schedule our pre wedding venue visit on the day of the DC earthquake and he still made it out. DJ Greyhound did the music for a our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. I bring this up because it was a logistics obstacle transitioning between all 3 physically dispersed locations. I really appreciate the level of energy and professionalism Vern gave the day. I'd highly recommend him.

Vern was very helpful and responsive, but not at all pushy. He was very organized and had everything ready to go well before the wedding, and was even kind when we were a little late in getting our contributions to him. At the event, he was professional and unobtrusive, playing exactly the type of music that we -- and our guests -- wanted. He handled last-minute requests from our crazy relatives with calm and patience. His follow-up was also great and showed that he really cares about clients.

seriously, the DJ community in the DC metro area is not only saturated, but completely overpriced. i found a gem with Dj Vern (DJ Greyhound)! he was likeable, responsive, organized, and best of all - affordable. we spoke on the phone twice and emailed a few times the 6 months before my wedding, but never had a chance to meet in person, but i wasnt worried. (he is available to meet in person if you like). he showed up on time, was appropriately dressed, and there wasnt ONE HICCUP with any of the music or sound set-ups. i would highly recommend DJ Greyhound Dj services to anyone planning a wedding and will refer him to any of my friends getting married as well.

Vern Shird/DJ Greyhound was great as our wedding DJ. He provided microphones, ceremony music, reception music and acted as MC for our wedding. We were very pleased with the sound quality, music choices and his ability to keep events on track. We requested he make a special birthday announcement in honor of a 90th birthday and he went above and beyond to get the photographer ready to take photos and get everyone to sing to her. It was the extra effort he put forth that made it really special. He was always responsive to our emails and gave helpful feedback on the timeline of our reception. The dancefloor was packed throughout our reception and he was flexible with the flow of our event. As a special bonus, he provides a cd with songs from the wedding which we're having a lot of fun listening to. We may be biased but we think he did a better job than the DJs at other weddings we've been to. Great service at a reasonable price.

We were very pleased with the sound quality, music choices and his ability to keep events on track. We requested he make a special birthday announcement in honor of a 90th birthday and he went above and beyond to get the photographer ready to take photos and get everyone to sing to her. It was the extra effort he put forth that made it really special. He was always responsive to our emails and gave helpful feedback on the timeline of our reception. The dancefloor was packed throughout our reception and he was flexible with the flow of our event. As a special bonus, he provides a cd with songs from the wedding which we're having a lot of fun listening to. We may be biased but we think he did a better job than the DJs at other weddings we've been to. Great service at a reasonable price. Read less

If we could give DJ Greyhound six stars we would, especially for value and flexibility. A glitch with another vendor left us without music for the ceremony, and within minutes Greyhound stepped in to literally save the day. We had not discussed the ceremony music before, but his selection was perfect. And he was smooth with transitions during dinner and reading the crowd on the dance floor. We recommend DJ Greyhound without hesitation.

Vern is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is professional but he is also very down to earth and personable. What might have been boring or awkward pre-consultation appointments became interesting conversations. We asked a lot of him and he gave us almost everything we asked for. We sent an extensive playlist--much of the music was not your typical wedding fare--and he was able to work in a lot of the songs we asked for, balancing them with other songs to keep the party going. The dance floor was never empty and we received a number of compliments about the music. We elected to do an anniversary dance (I was a little bit skeptical about this, to be honest), and it was very touching when Vern congratulated the couple who had been married longest (54 years!) and asked what their secret to a happy marriage is. People really loved this. Overall, it was a great experience working with Vern and I would absolutely recommend him.

Vern was great to work with. He said his services were all inclusive and he was honest. My husband and I gave him every piece of music we wanted played at the wedding - some pretty obscure stuff - and he found it all! We wanted our wedding to be elegant but when party time came around he turned up the volume and delivered at the reception. Everyone had a great time - the dance floor was occupied all night! He definitely set the tone for the wedding we wanted.

DJ Greyhound is THE BEST!! He did a fantastic job on our wedding on May 7th. From the beginning, he was very responsive and very easy to work with. I didn't give him a lot of direction as far as songs we were looking for or the type of music we liked, but he took the info I did give him, ran with it, and did a great job! He had everyone from our friends to my grandparents out on the dance floor! He did a great job of mixing music the older guests enjoyed with more current songs. I couldn't have asked for more! Thank you so much! -Kimberly & Matt

Book this guy!!! I had been looking high and low for someone I could trust to NOT be "that DJ" at our wedding. I didn't want a lot of interference during the reception and DJ Greyhound made me feel very comfortable that I was booking the right vendor. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a huge music selection. All I had to do was pick about 6-7 songs I wanted played at our reception and he filled in the rest with some great picks! I also used him for the ceremony music and while my head was spinning at the time, right before I walked down the aisle I noticed that the music was perfect - perfect timing (which I was VERY worried about, as I only used one song for the wedding party and bridal entrance), perfect volume, perfect everything!

DJ Greyhound provided great music and (light) emcee services (as desired) for our wedding reception. He books up quickly, so I was thrilled to have my date available when I contacted him. We were able to have a "no play" and "must play" list, and he even gave us a CD of special wedding songs from our reception after the reception ended. He kept the dance floor packed throughout the evening and requested phonetic spellings of our bridal party so that he was able to pronounce our name (which can be difficult) and the names of our bridal party members correctly!

DJGreyhound provided us great, trouble-free service for our wedding.

He was easy to book, showed up on time (depite the wedding being 1 day after Hurricane Isabel), and provided exactly the service he said he would.

He gave us the opportunity to review his song list ahead of time and provide any "vetos" (no chicken dance, yeah!), and generally guide him on the overall type of music we were looking for.

We had a couple of songs we wanted that he didn't have on his play list, and he accepted our CDs and played them for us.

Cost was great for the service provided. I'd hire him again and recommend him to others.

Dj Greyhound (Vern) was awesome. I hand picked my entire cocktail hour, had a very obscure ceremony song, timing instructions, among other things. I gave Vern the wedding coordinator's contact info, and I didn't have to worry about anything after that. Didn't need to speak to Vern day-of and there he was, delivering everything as discussed. Stress free and exactly what we were hoping for - amazing experience. Thanks Vern!!!!

Vern was fantastic! We wanted a low-key DJ that would keep our guests on the dance floor. Even with our daytime wedding, Vern did a great job! We had very specific "play" and "do not play" lists, which he followed perfectly. He pronounced our unusual last name correctly, and was extremely flexible on the wedding day when we moved times, switched orders, etc.

His price tag is a little higher than most DJ's, but in this case you get what you pay for. Vern was worth the splurge and I'm so happy he was able to play our wedding.

I heard rave reviews from our guests about the overall song flow and selections. DJ Greyhound was a pleasure to work with, and he wasn't afraid to roll up his sleeves to pitch in when things got a little hectic behind the scenes. He helped our other vendors and the venue make sure our day was great, and for that I am eternally grateful. I would recommend him for any event.

We also enjoyed the momento CD he made for us of songs that were played at the wedding.

We were looking for a DJ who would get people dancing but without being loud or cheesy. Vern was low-key and professional and knew how to get everyone engaged. He understood that while we had a fair number of people who would be speaking, we didn't want the garter or bouquet toss or any of that stuff. He was very respectful of what we wanted and not what usually is done. He also excellent at keeping us on schedule with the speeches, cake cutting, etc. He was also very pleasant and very responsive. I would definitely would recommend his services.

Vern was a pleasure to work with. We went through 5 DJs before finding him. He was responsive to all our requests and did his best to make sure that everything went smoothly. Vern doesn't have a wireless lapel mic., so make sure your officiant, and anyone doing a reading, knows that they'll have to speak directly into the microphone to be heard. Also, if you plan on doing a special dance, say like for an introduction, make sure he has the same version you practiced with. Our intro song had a slightly different beginning section that forced us into our routine too early. Vern did play all of our song requests. Overall, we'd recommend Vern for your DJ services.

DJ Greyhound is professional and experienced - if you want things done right, on a schedule, and very traditional then he is the way to go. If you need assurance that your wedding reception will be a predictable event with the expected DJ'esque type environment you will be satisfied with this service. However this is not what we wanted and probably should have canceled our contract early on - and we take full responsibility for not realizing that this DJ was comparable to a Davis DJ type corny-event. We were disappointed with the music and the demeanor of his presence the day of our event. Many of our personal requests submitted far in advance of the request month deadline were not played during the dance hour. The DJ was curt to us the day of our event and it was awkward working with him during the reception. We had read such great reviews on the Web about this service but personally were disappointed with the unoriginality and presence of this DJ.

DJGreyhound DJ Services responded with the following comments:

I disputed this review with WeddingWire because I found it quite baffling. The client chose "low key/conversative" on their planning sheet and, at the consult, stated that she didn't want an overbearing dj or a dj that was the center of attention. I explained at the consult that I use my discretion when reading the crowd - if I see that the crowd isn't responding to certain songs on the playlist, then I play songs that will keep people dancing. Several of the songs that weren't played were still included in the custom CD given to the client. People were still dancing towards the end of the original contracted time so the client asked if I could do an hour of overtime. I said I could, but the OT had to be paid upfront, as stated in the contract, so I don't believe I was out of line. I pride myself on my professionalism and stress that all prospective clients be completely sure that the vision they have at the consult is what they want at the event. I can make helpful suggestions at the consult, but it's ultimately your decision.

DJGreyhound DJ Services responded with the following comments:

I had to use the client's laptop and plug it into my system because the CDs they provided were burned with data files, not audio files. I do not use a laptop for my dj system, I use dj components (cd system, mixer, amplifier, etc). I explain my dj system at my consults and the components are covered in my website. If you are a prospective client, I'll gladly play any CDs you provide, but please make sure they contain audio files.
