Describe your DJ style:
We offer an array of styles from low key to interactive, depending on the client's preferences. Profiles of the dj's bio, testimonials and references are listed on their individual web page from the link MEET OUR DJS.
What is your usual attire?
We always wear formal attire (black tuxedos) unless otherwise instructed. We have even been asked to wear attire related to the client's theme before.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Our database of music is very extensive. However if for some reason, we do not have a particular song, we will search for it within our network of djs and make our best effort to obtain it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Currently we have 16 on our staff.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Our packages are normally a four hour minimum, but we are always willing to play for more or less time if needed. This can be discussed with your representative.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely. We encourage a meeting with the bride and her dj before booking her event.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We have done event for just about every ethnic group. We also offer 4 spanish bilingual disc jockeys.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely. Our online planning forms include a section for must play, play if possible and do not play list submitted by our clients.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Absolutely. We only bring state of the art digital sound systems to each event. We also bring backup equipment to each event in case of an unlikely equipment failure.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Additional equipment for ceremonies is often requested. We offer not only additional sound systems, but multiple microphones for the minister, bride and groom and readers if requested. For the reception, lighting, karaoke and MTV style videos are sometimes requested.
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?
It normally takes between 15-30 minutes for the dj to set up their equipment and perform a sound check however our djs are instructed to arrive at the venue 60-90 minutes prior to the start time of the event. Additional equipment will take a little longer.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
A six or eight foot table is enough space for the dj. Our systems are very compact so we can fit in even smaller areas at times.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We do not use signs or banners at an event for self promotion.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
All of our djs are accomplished speakers so each one can act as a master of ceremonies. We do not typically talk between songs unless making an announcement.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We normally do not have this issue because the music we play, usually motivates the crowd.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
A meal is not required but appreciated. There are never any breaks taken by the dj unless instructed by the client to do so.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
The music never stops unless once again instructed by the client.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Each weekend, one of our djs is assigned the duty of "sitting in the bullpen" in case of an unlikely emergency.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
We have on occasion but typically the answer is no. Most events are usually in the late afternoon until late evening which does not allow for two events in one day.
What is your overtime rate?
Depending on your package our additional hour rates range from $100 - $200
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We do not charge any additional travel fees over 75 miles (one way).
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Our deposit is $300 to reserve your assigned disc jockey.

Event entertainment is by far the best at what they do. They were a recommended vendor for our venue and I can see why! They had an easy to use planning website that allowed us to pick the songs that we wanted played and limit the ones we did not. I requested a song for our first dance that was not in their library. Dave responded right away and said he could get the song. He was always available when we had questions. As for the actual day of, it was amazing! The music during the ceremony was on point and perfect. I have never seen so many people dance at a wedding and stay on the dance floor all night. He played all of the right music, appealing to all ages and keeping everyone dancing. I still have people telling me how amazing the night was and how much fun they had. To top it all of, he sent me a link to a video mix of the wedding that weekend! I am so excited to have that to always remember our wedding. I would recommend Event Entertainment to anyone who needs a DJ!

I cannot say enough great things about Dave Holmes and Event Entertainment. First and foremost, he was by far our most responsive vendor, answering any question or concern I had throughout the wedding process almost instantaneously. Also, having been the DJ at a previous family wedding, we witnessed firsthand his expertise at keeping the music and party going, and our wedding was no different! He plays music for the ages and had all of our guests on the dance floor throughout the night. I am so grateful he was our DJ and would highly recommend him to any future bride!

We had the pleasure of using event entertainment for DJ and photography services! They did a fantastic job! Dave was an amazing DJ for our day time wedding and he kept the party going, for all ages for the full reception! I couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Dave was available to meet/ chat with us through out the whole planing process! Not to mention, his prices were great and SO worth the value! We had Rob Grant photograph our wedding day. AMAZING. He was prompt, attentive to detail, captured fantastic photos throughout the day and the best part is that we didn't really know he was there! His journalistic style was perfect! He captured the whole day but always did it in a classy, non noticeable way! It was perfect for us! Great pricing too!

My DJ was Dave Holmes, and he was fantastic! Throughout the planning process he was always very responsive, and helpful. Even when I asked the same question a couple times ("wedding brain" is real!) he never made me feel like I was bothering him. And then the day of, he was everything I could have asked for. The ceremony went perfectly, the music was exactly how I imagined it. And the reception was the fun party we wanted it to be; he played all our songs in the perfect order to get people up and dancing, with perfectly timed slow songs to catch our breath. Dave also was instrumental in keeping the night's events going according to schedule :)

Words cannot express how thankful I am to have booked Dave and Event Entertainment! Thank you, Dave!

We knew that Dave was the DJ we wanted at our wedding the minute we met him. He was fun, personable, and inviting from the beginning. He worked with us through the entire process and even met with us a few days before the wedding to ensure we had everything in place. The music was great, the guests loved it and I couldn't have asked for anything better.

Dave Holmes and DJ Johnny were 100% responsive at all times prior to the wedding. At the wedding, DJ Johnny was just perfect! He could not have done a better job. He understood the very diverse crowd (half Venezuelan, half American) perfectly and played each song requested. He was amazing. We were dancing the whole reception!

My wedding was on October 4, 2014. Dave was so responsive and helpful during our wedding planning process. He would always get right back to me with suggestions or to let me know he received my message. He was also really flexible when we had to make some last minute changes to our ceremony! The reception was amazing and was a great, fun party my family and friends will never forget! Totally magical. I highly recommend Dave and Event Entertainment.

Dave Holmes was our DJ for our wedding in September and he was AMAZING!! A lot of times vendors can be pushy and make you feel pressured but not Dave. His rate was fair and he listened to everything we wanted. His simple online form made planning a breeze and very convenient.

As far as the dancing and party music, everyone had a blast and danced all night long!!! We told Dave they style of music we liked and he delivered! Our venue coordinator went as far as to say he could not remember the last wedding they hosted where the dance floor was not just that full, but that packed for the entire night!!

Dave provided questions for the shoe game, costumes for the YMCA dance and props for the conga line. Our guests loved it all! Everyone keeps complimenting our selection of DJ! Not to mention the video Dave put together and sent to us!!! Just an all around respectable vendor and great guy!! Highly Highly recommend!!
