Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
We pride ourselves on being able to mix all genres to cater to your unique playlist, and keep your guests on the dance floor all night long!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
We love input from all of our Brides & Grooms! If you want to provide us with 10 of your favourite songs and let us fill in the gaps, great! If you have the perfect playlist already picked out, pass it along to us and let us put it together like you have never heard it before!
What is your usual attire?
Dress pants and dress shirt are the minimum all our DJ's wear, although, being Man About Town Entertainment, we often like to dress to impress!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We will scour all of our avenues to find the songs you need! In the very unlikely event that we cannot locate a specific song, we may ask the Bride & Groom for a little assistance.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We have a roster of 10 amazing DJ's and are always on the hunt for the top talent of BC!
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
All our Standard Wedding packages include up to 8 hours of music.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
We try our best to get our Brides & Grooms together with their fantastic DJ prior to the big day, however it is not always possible.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Man About Town Entertainment specializes in making a celebration the absolute best it can be! From Chinese tea ceremonies, to Persian the Sofre-ye-Aghd, we are familiar with a plethora of ethnic customs, and are always keen to immerse ourselves in new ones!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
We INSIST that all our clients provide a do-not-play list. A great DJ's job is not always playing the songs you want to hear, it often falls on NOT playing the songs you do not want to hear.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Man About Town Entertainment always brings their own top of the line, modern equipment to all of their events.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
With a wide variety of a la carte celebration options, we have everything a wedding could need. LED uplighting, custom wedding gobos, additional sound including wireless microphones, subwoofers etc.
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?
A Standard DJ Package take approximately 1hr to set up. We require a minimum 4ft table for our set up.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Being a mobile operator, we are used to working in a variety of spaces and conform our set ups to the room we are in.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Man About Town Entertainment will never have branding at any wedding.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
All of our DJ's are interactive and do a little emceeing in between songs, are happy to make any service announcements throughout the evening, and are available to be full MC's for the event as well.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
This is the part that separates a regular DJ from a GREAT DJ. With years of experience, our DJ's can read a room, change the vibe, get on the mic, or even possibly play a game to get your dance floor going, and keep it that way all night long!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not take breaks, and eat our meals at our DJ booth to ensure smooth volume levels, and transitions into speeches if needed.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
With our large roster, we always have a backup DJ on hand.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
We never book a DJ for more than one event per day.
What is your overtime rate?
Overtime rates are dependant on location, how many hours, and the hours which are overtime.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Travel expenses are based on location and timing.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We require a 50% deposit to secure your celebration date!

Man About Town was AWESOME! Our wedding at the Brix included a range of ages, and DJ Johnny was able to create a party for all. And I mean all! He also played MC when our MC had to leave early. The placement of the DJ table meant that Johnny didn't always have a sightline as to what was happening at the restaurant, but he was still able to queue music at the exact time that we needed him to. The admin part of the booking was also a breeze, and Girl About Town Tanya was cheerful, prompt and very organized. I would definitely recommend Man About Town for your event. Thank you again, MAT!!! We love you!

Man about Town Entertainment, was a great vendor for our wedding! Everyone loved the music and photo booth. They answered all our emails promptly and offered sound advice.
We even had to change our date, extremely last minute and they let us re-book and waved our late service fee! Outstanding service.

I love man about town! Mike met with us before the wedding and was a super fun guy to work with. Shane, our DJ, was awesome. He played all of our "must plays" and lots of our "maybe plays" and lots of other great songs as well. He had a happy fun vibe that was exactly what you want in a wedding DJ.

AMAZING!!!!! Michael was simply the best DJ we could've asked for. Super friendly, knowledgeable, helpful in music selection, very accommodating with our venue setup, and responded promptly to all our questions. He was dressed appropriately (unlike others we've seen at weddings), he was punctual and had everything all ready. He made our wedding run so smoothly and our guests were so pumped to hit the dance floor!

We highly recommend booking with Man About Town ASAP!!!

We would definitely reccomend Man About Town for your wedding DJ. We were at 6 weddings this year, all with different DJs, and I have to say that the DJs from MAT far outweighed the competition. From navigating a difficult speaker set up, to playing great mingling and munching music during cocktails and dinner, and finallly playing hit after hit and keeping all ages happy on the dance floor for hours, these guys hit it out of the park. I wouldnt hesitate to use them again (when my feet stop hurting from all the dancing!).

Wow! I don't even know where to start with Man About Town Entertainment. The booking and consultation process was simple. They did a great job of ensuring what we needed for our wedding and specific venue. The forms that they have you fill out ahead of time ensure that all of the right music is played for your special moments.

The DJ was early, all set up and ready to go on time. He didn't require any special instruction and worked with the MC to ensure that everything flowed smoothly.

Once it was time to start the dancing the only complaint we had was that people didn't want to leave the dance floor as there never a song that people wanted to take a break on. Our guests continued to tell us throughout the night how the music was the best that they had ever heard at a wedding. It was perfect from start to finish.

Thank you Man About Town and Johnny for making our day awesome!

We had had great feedback about our DJ Jon so we will definitely be spreading the word! Personally, I appreciated how he almost always stuck to my song picks, took live requests and confirmed the details for our surprise serenade song.

Everyone had an awesome time and couldn't stop dancing! The sound worked perfectly which was obviously important to us. We feel very fortunate to have had this company take care of the sound/music/DJing.

Great service and awesome music! The dance floor was packed at our wedding all night long! Our DJ, Peter, played all the music we requested and even came up to me and my husband during the night asking if there was anything else we wanted him to play. The owner, Michael, was professional, upbeat and got back to us in a timely manner. My guests had lots of compliments about the music at our wedding! This DJ company is a great value and I would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride-to-be!

My wife and I were so happy to have Man About Town provide their DJ services for our wedding. We had a destination wedding in a fairly remote location, and ensuring we had the best music and sound system was important to us. Michael was excellent to work with in setting everything up, and DJ Es Robinski (Shane), was amazing. Our guests had such an amazing time, and commented about how much they loved the music was for the ceremony and reception. Shane set everything up with no assistance from us, and the music sound quality was top notch, which made for an epic party. We'd be happy to recommend Man About Town to anyone.
