Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Our DJ style is to be professional and fun, without going over the edge into the "cheesy" behavior that people can't stand. The show is focused on you, not us!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No, we work with each client to determine the "right mix" for their event.
What is your usual attire?
Shirt/Tie. Tuxedo if requested. We do not try and outdress the wedding party, as the focus should be on them.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, we can download nearly any song as long as it's available on the internet. If the song is not not available, we will look at all available resources including retail purchase, borrowing from a library, or borrowing from another DJ that we have a relationship with.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We personally perform at all of our shows. However, in the unlikely event of an emergency, having been in business for 22 years, we have very strong relationships with other local disc jockey services.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Most of our packages are priced for 5 hours, but we are flexible based on the client needs.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, as long as we can meet in the greater Akron or Cleveland area at a time and place that is mutually agreeable to everyone.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We can customize the music to any ethnic nationality and also work alongside any musicians that you hire in addition to us.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes, it can be done online, just as easily as making a request, but using the red song button (instead of yellow or green) for do not plays.
Do you bring your own equipment?
We own all of our equipment and have been in business since 1988.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer light shows, satellite sound systems, wireless mics, video screens, and karaoke.
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?
Most setups take an hour or two unless there are unusual obstacles like multiple floors, downtown buildings, etc. We do not require tables or anything else from the venue. Just outlets to plug into.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Video screens require extra space because the projector is behind the screen as these are rear projection units. Our 6 foot diagonal screen requires about 8 feet of depth and our 8.5 feet diagonal screen requires about 12 feet of depth.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
A very small sign, a 4x6 picture frame, that can be removed upon request.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes, we try and guide the event to make it an enjoyable and worry free evening for the client. Of course, we avoid all the "chessy" DJ talk, you have probably heard at too many weddings already.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Try and work in some popular group dances that everyone knows to try and get the floor full again and then not replay whatever style of music initially turned people off.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Dinner is appreciated, but not required. Seating vendors together at your wedding also allows for additional coordination of your reception events to follow and puts everyone at ease working as a team.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
NA; this question applies to a band.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, we never overbook ourselves, so extra company personnel (not subcontractors) and backup equipment are available.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No.
What is your overtime rate?
$25.00-$50.00 per half hour in most cases depending on the package selected. Please see our website for further details.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
If the event is over 50 miles away, there is $1.00 per mile surcharge starting with mile 51. We will use mapquest.com to determine the best practical highway route and mileage from point a to point b. Please see our website for further details on this.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$100.00 minimum, which is applied towards the total balance. The remaining balance is due in full at least 10 days prior to the event.

Lee Volkov and his assistant were excellent. We also asked them to play the music for the ceremony, which they did with no problem. They microphoned the officiant wirelessly which worked out perfectly. Their music selections were great during the rehearsal and got people up on their feet. Nothing but good things to say about them. Also very affordable by DJ standards.
