INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Fun, Upbeat and Interactive
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No limit but I reserve the right to use my better judgement on songs while keeping within the tastes of the bride and groom. Remember your mother and grandmother will probably be there.
What is your usual attire?
Suit or Tuxedo but it's your wedding. I will wear what you like and I am happy to allow you to see my wardrobe prior to your wedding for approval.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Not at all. This is why we pre plan. On average I'll buy a handful of songs that I don't have for each wedding... That said I have a library of over 70,000 songs.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Right now I'm it. Although we will be growing this year. The DJ you speak to or meet about your wedding will be the DJ that will be there. No wondering who's going to show up on your wedding day. This tends to be a problem for larger companies.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Three hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely, and in fact I prefer it. Your DJ is one of the most important aspects of your wedding. With that said you should like and be comfortable with who they are.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We love ethnic and international events. Latin events are a particular joy to DJ. I have a great assortment of latin music to include Salsa, Merengue, Cha cha, Bachata and cumbia.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely, and if you decide to use Jewell Events you will notice that is a part of our online planner. You can choose to Definitely Play, Play if Possible and Do Not Play. - On top of that we offer a guest request password so your friends can get in on the fun of selecting dance music... With your final approval, of course.
Do you bring your own equipment?
We have all state of the art name brand gear that you're surely going to love the sound of.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
If you can imagine it we can do it... Standard upgrades that we have though are LED Uplighting and upgraded Dance lights. We also have one of the best sounding Ceremony packages complete with wireless lapel microphones.
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 am usually on site no later that an hour before and usually 2. We do not require a table but if the site would like to provide one with matching linens to your decor that is great too.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Not really, We have a very tight, clean modern setup. The only thing we do ask is when you design your room, that you put your dj next to the dance floor.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
This is your event, not mine so I will not have a banner or any other advertising out other than cards on my table.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
This is part of what being a wedding DJ is ... and you should not settle for less. I'd rather you think of me/us as your entertainment directors.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Usually crowds are not that hard to move but I have been known to start a line dance or two and even dance with grandma if that is what it takes. I've danced all my life so leading line dances is always a fun way to get a crowd out.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Other than going to the bathroom and getting something to drink I will not take a break. My priority is to stay attentive to the Bride... making sure she is happy. Although not necessary it is customary to feed your vendors at your wedding such as the photographer and DJ.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
I will not ever allow there to be silence if I can help it and as I said I really don't take breaks. I can automate a few songs while I take a bathroom break and such.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We have relationships with several local DJ companies and would arrange for a suitable replacement if that is neccessary.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No, I really like to focus on one bride at a time.
What is your overtime rate?
$200 / hr
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$200

Don Jewell with Jewell Events Entertainment, provided their DJ service Saturday June 7, 2014 for our wedding reception at The Beam Room @ Front Street Brewery and he was amazing! Don displayed amazing skills and attributes of a DJ, over and beyond expected friendliness and interaction with the entire crowd and wedding party. He is one of the most friendliest guys I know. He made both of our families very happy with his service! I will be recommending Don to everyone!

I was a little apprehensive as to the vendors I selected for my wedding because I did not meet with any of them until my wedding day, as I planned a small destination wedding! I got so lucky with all of them...but I must say Don Jewel is the MAN! I have never been to a wedding where the DJ was so much fun, and just simply AWESOME!! He really added an element of fun to our event! Could not be more happy with my decision to use him as a DJ! I would even go as far to say it was the BEST decision I made throughout my wedding planning process!!

I knew the moment I first spoke to Don that we made the perfect decision when choosing the best entertainer for our wedding. He played every song we requested plus threw in a few I had forgotten to request. He was able to keep my grandparents dancing at the age of 88 and 94!
Don, we will never forget our day and how much fun it was!!! I recommend every bride and groom hire you and also to use the gobo and photo booth! both were a enormous hit!

Thank you for the bottom of our hearts,

Don Jewell did a terrific job at our wedding. He was flexible and made sure we had exactly what we wanted. He was willing to purchase the classical music I wanted for our dinner experience. He did a great job helping make sure each thing we needed to do got done. Plus, i cFund his price pretty reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ!

Don Jewell is no ordinary DJ....he is the life of the party!! Thanks to him everyone was up and dancing at my wedding! His website made it super easy to log on throughout our engagement and add songs as we thought of them. It was very easy to choose our special dance songs, dedications and to create a do not play list. He offered so many additional services (ae. lighting & photo booth) at a reasonable price. Most importantly it truly shows he loves what he does. I will absolutely use/ recommend him for future events!!!

Don Jewel was GREAT! The music he played was age appropriate and got everyone onto the dance floor. The days that followed, everyone had great things to say about Don. I have already given out his contact info to a co-worker for a November party. I will be using him again in the future for other events.

The best DJ ever. He totally made my wedding reception better with his crowd interactions. My husband and I as well as all of the guests were buzzing about how fun he was. He even went out and helped with line dances which is awesome since I am not someone who dances. I would definitely hire him again.

Jewell Events was recommended to me by my planner, Jennifer Wilson of Lily Belles Floral & Event Design. It was so easy working with Don every step of the way. When shopping for DJs, Don was the first vendor to get back in touch with us, and it was almost instantly. He is always cheerful and happy to be working with you, which was a huge plus for me. We had multiple meetings with Don in person and he was quick to respond to emails. Here is one of the best parts of working with Don pre-wedding day: Everything is ONLINE!! I spent hours looking through his music library and requesting songs, adding comments, and having fun. Also, he happily found all my off-the-wall ceremony music. During the wedding and reception, Don was great. In fact, my friends took photos and video of him to share with everyone because he really made the party happen. Thanks Don! I wish we could go back in time and do it again! :-)

For anyone looking for the perfect DJ, I HIGHLY reccommend D.J. Don Jewell!! He is not just a run-of-the-mill D.J. He goes above and beyond. He gets out and dances with you but will also help get guests out on the dance floor too. He gets the crowd going and will make your night memorable. I still have people complimenting me on the D.J. I hired for our wedding, and how much fun he made the night for everyone! He not only D.J.s, but he helps with some many other things through
out the night and makes sure your evening flows seamlessly. He is so easy to work with and can also give you several good ideas on music or special events for your day. I promise you, you wont be disappointed and he's very reasonably priced! Thank you again, Don for making our day so special!

Don & his crew were absolutely amazing! I was very pleased with their service for the photo booth and I'm happy that I got to be the first wedding reception where they rolled out their photo booth for the first time. If there were any snags with setting up or if any of my weird friends & family caused issues, I have no idea because they were super professional... Every time I went up there, it seemed like they were having as much fun as my guests! Even though I only utilized their photo booth service, I'm confident that all other services provided by Jewell Events will be just as perfect and I'll definitely be recommending them to anyone and everyone!

Don was an excellent dj for our wedding! He engaged the crowd and kept the party rolling! He really wanted to be a part of the entire party and you can tell he loves his job! I would suggest in the future to play more of what was requested previously by the wedding party on the website, rather than requests from the guests. However, I know its hard to please everyone! Truly a great job done by Don and a wonderful time had by all!!

We had our wedding reception 09/29/12 and we chose Jewell Events as our DJ and we were more than happy with our choice! Don was amazing and really delivered a great vibe for our recpetion.

We didn't have a huge dancing crowd, but Don was able to get people out on the dance floor! He had quite a personality and was super entertaining the whole night!

He made sure to play the songs we requested but threw a few twists in there as well! We were very happy with the service we received.

Don mixed a song for my Dad and I to dance to, we wanted to break out into a little remix. It was a hit with the crowd and I was very happy with the remix Don put together for us!

We also wanted to play a game at our reception and Don was accommodating with this as well and kept it PG13! haha

I would definitely recommend Jewell Events for any event! He was professional, affordable, and fun! He made our event!
