Your wedding... your way... at a great price!

First Class DJ Entertainment is all about making sure you and your guests have a fun and memorable evening as you celebrate the beginning of your life together. Our prices are all-inclusive so you NEVER pay extra for lighting or use of wireless microphones or anything else.

My name is Alan Rosin, and I am the owner and primary DJ for First Class. I have more than 20 years experience as a wedding DJ. My philosophy is to provide great service at a reasonable price. Honestly, if you really WANT to pay $1200 or more for a DJ I guess that's your call, but I'm telling you that most of the weddings I do price out UNDER $800. Take that extra money and spend it on your honeymoon!

Music-wise, I play what YOU want to hear! It's your night, YOUR party. You want to hear the Chicken Dance? No problem! No chicken dance? That's okay, too. I will play the music you want and likewise will NOT play music you don't want. No two clients have exactly the same tastes and style and that's why you deserve a DJ who will work with you and work FOR you.

Wanna know more? I'm only an e-mailor a phone call away - and be sure to mention you found me on WeddingWire for a special introductory offer! Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Rock, Swing
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
I am a facilitator - NOT the "star". The night is all about you, the bride and groom. I play the music you and your guests want to dance to all night long.
What is your usual attire?
For weddings I usually wear a suit with tie, or dark pants, vest and tie.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
It is my responsibility to have any music that has been pre-requested. You may certainly provide your own music if you wish, but I would never "require" you to do so.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I work solo, but I am part of a network of DJs who back each other in emergency situations.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
4 hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! In fact, I recommend a minimum of one meeting and prefer two or more. There is no charge for meetings.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
No
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, and back-up equipment just in case.......
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Lighting effects, lighted mirror ball, fog & bubbles available (if venue allows), and wireless microphones for your use. Karaoke is also available for those who pre-request it.
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?
Usually an hour or so to set up and sound check. I like to be set up and ready to go 20-30 minutes BEFORE your first guests arrive at the reception. I have a table but if the venue has one available I will use that one - one less thing to carry :-)
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I will gladly MC the reception but tend to keep the talk between songs to a minimum (unless there is a specific announcement I need to do). It's my opinion that your guests aren't there to hear me talk when they'd rather be dancing.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
You are absolutely NOT REQUIRED to feed me.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
YES
What is your overtime rate?
$100 per hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
I do not charge for anything within a 120-mile radius of Rockford, IL. Beyond that, depending on the lateness of the event, I would probably add $75 to cover the additional travel time or hotel.
