Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
I make sure to play my client's special request at the event. I use my experience to read the audience and mix songs together to keep the dance floor going!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
My clients normally choose up to 30 "Must Play" and 30 "Play if Possible" songs. They also have the option of "Do Not Play" song or genres. There is no limit, but I always advise my client if the event does not allow enough time for all requests.
What is your usual attire?
My clients make this choice for me. I'll wear whatever the event calls for: Tuxedo, Dark or Light Suit, and Theme outfit.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I can find the song 99% of the time. If it's a customized tune, they'll usually give me a CD or Flash Drive to use.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I work with two other DJs to provide backup in case of emergency. I perform at all of the functions unless lightning strikes which has yet to happen. Knock on wood!
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
3 hour minimum
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, if inside a 30 mile radius. You'll always have access to me via email and phone.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Latin or AfroCuban Events
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, always. Even if the venue already has equipment. Better safe than sorry.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
I use the best in the industry "green friendly" LED dance floor lighting. They use very little power which your venue will appreciate. I won't blow any breakers at your event.
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?
60 to 90 minutes depending on the amount of sound and lighting equipment the event requires.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Only at casual community events like carnivals, farmers markets, fairs, sporting events, etc. I do carry business cards with me should a potential client approach me. I make sure your wedding is the focus, not my company name.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I emcee during the Reception Welcome, Grand Entrance, Event Timeline: introduce officiant/pastor for prayer if required, announce first dance, parent dances, bouquet and garter toss, last dance, etc. I'm not a cheesy game show host dj.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
I advise the bride and groom that one of their song requests may clear the dance floor. If that happens, I normally fade the song out within one minute if no one is dancing, and play something more popular to get things going again. My experience of reading a crowd pays off here. I only allow it to play if the couple really wants the song played in its entirety.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I don't take breaks or require a meal. I'm grateful if it's offered, but I don't expect it.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
N/A
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
It's never happened in 27 years, but I always have a backup DJ ready with the clients event requirements if needed.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No. One event a day is what I focus on. My clients appreciate this and keep hiring me because I do what I say I'm going to do.
What is your overtime rate?
Weddings: $125 per hour. Parties: $75 per hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No. If the event requires me to stay overnight, then yes. I make sure inexpensive lodging is added.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
50% deposit secures your event. You may make payments after towards the balance leading up to the scheduled event. PayPal is available.
