Aloha and Congratulations!

We selected the beautiful island of Maui as our home and our base and we have an office on the island of Oahu. Since 1996. we have entertained thousands of people at over 1500 events. Our clients come from all over the world. Yes, Hawaii is truly the "gathering place" and music is definitely the universal language. We also specialize in International weddings and events and have performed for clients from India, Europe, China, Japan, Philippines, Korea, New Zealand and Australia. We have had the pleasure of providing entertainment for celebrities, "the girl next door" and for parties as small as ten to as grand as 2500. We entertain on five of the main Hawaiian Islands; Maui, Oahu, Lanai, Hawaii and Kauai and have traveled to California and Canada to create those magical memories.


Alan has entertained for corporate events including American Express, Boeing, CBS, FedEx, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Louis Vuitton, Mercedes Benz, Microsoft, NFL Players Association, Seagate, Viacom, Wells Fargo and Western Digital, to name a few. Alan is also one of the top recommended DJ's for many of the independent wedding coordinators, as well as the Four Seasons Resort-Wailea, Grand Wailea Resort, Hyatt Regency Maui, Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, Sheraton Maui, and Westin Maui.

Alan has also emceed for many awards programs, and team building events. He has donated his time and services to many of the local charities such as American Cancer Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Maui Aids Foundation, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Terry Fox Run, National Kidney Foundation, Queen Lili'uokalani Children's Center and Women helping Women.

"Entertainment is my passion and my second passion is golf . . . what better place than Maui?

If I'm not entertaining, I'm on the golf course with a single digit handicap.

Anyone interested in a round?"


Alan Batungbacal, Entertainment Director, Event Planner, MC,

Lighting Specialist, Music Progarammer & Amateur Golfer

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
The only "cheese" in Maui Tunes Entertainment & Productions is in our Photobooths. We don't wear tacky jackets, sunglasses or hats to your event and we won't play the Chicken Dance, YMCA, Macarena or any other cheesy dance songs (unless you request them). We "Beat-Mix" all of our music, so there is no "dead-space" or silence between songs. We don't "scratch" or try to impress the crowd with our DJ skills because it's not about us, it's about the Bride and Groom.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Unfortunately, receptions are time sensitive and therefore we can only play a limited number of songs. Based on the average of 3.5 minutes per song, we can only play 17 songs in an hour. So if we have two hours for dancing, we can play approximately 34 songs. However, we encourage our clients to request the songs they like. This gives us a better idea of the type of music they like and it also gives us more options based on crowd reaction.
What is your usual attire?
Our DJ's generally dress in "Resort Casual", "Tommy Bahama's"-type shirt with long slacks and shoes, after all, this is Hawaii. However, if your event warrants a tuxedo or a coat and tie, rest assured, that will be taken care of.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We require all song requests to be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the date of the event. If there is a song that we don't have, we will do everything possible to obtain that song. However, if for some reason, we cannot find that song, we will ask our clients to provide it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I generally do not book an event unless I am the one who will be DJ'ing it. I try to help potential clients, to find a DJ that will fit their budget or requirements. We are a close-knitted community. We refer business to each other and help each other out when needed. Most of the DJ's here on Maui are "part-time" and that's what makes it difficult. They have to get the time off from their work. I have 3-4 part-time DJ's that I work with.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
My rates are compensatory to my time. I will DJ for 30 minutes, if that is what the client is looking for. However, the real question is how much is the client willing to pay for those 30 minutes. External factors must also be considered: set up, breakdown, location, travel, other entertainment, etc. The bottom line is I will work with my clients to come up with a package best suited for their needs and budget.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
For the most part, yes. Appointments should be made as early as possible.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We also specialize in International weddings and events and have performed for clients from India, Europe, China, Japan, Philippines, Korea, New Zealand and Australia. We have had the pleasure of providing entertainment for celebrities, "the girl next door" and for parties as small as ten to as grand as 2500. We entertainrf on five of the main Hawaiian Islands; Maui, Oahu, Lanai, Hawaii and Kauai and have traveled to California and Canada to create those magical memories.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely!
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, however, there are times when the event is a very large production, involving many different acts, which also require equipment. This can create chaos on stage. So it's best that the client hires and provides an audio/video/lighting company with technicians to man the equipment. This will reduce the clutter of equipment on stage and the amount of setup time between acts.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
My standard service includes two lights that provide multi-colored beams of light which move to the beat of the music. Disco Balls, intelligent lights or moving heads can be added as upgrades.
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 prefer to setup at my own pace rather than being rushed. I schedule one hour for setup and I require the client to provide a 6' skirted table.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
DJ's are generally setup right next to the dance floor so they may interact with the crowd. Speakers should also be right next to the dance floor because that's where the dancing is. I require a minimum of 10' X 10' with adequate ventilation. In other words, not in a closet or tucked away in a corner.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, absolutely not. In fact my company name is never mentioned.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Only when requested or required.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
That is open for discussion.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
That depends on the venue, client and package.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
DJ network
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
I have on several occasions, only because the two events were at the same location and the other time, the first event was during mid-day and the last one at night.
What is your overtime rate?
Negotiable
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Negotiable
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
50%, non-refundable deposit, with the balance due 14 days prior to the date of the event.

DJ Alan was amazing. Because of him our wedding was magical! He played every song we requested and he was on top of it the entire time. Indian weddings require a lot of coordination and planning and Alan was very responsive to emails and phone calls. He met with us a few days before the wedding and we discussed every song and at what time it should be played. He even helped us with our dance! Music is everything at events like these and Alan went above and beyond. thank you Alan for helping us make our wedding dream come true.

We hired Alan from Maui Tunes to act as an Emcee and DJ at our wedding and to provide uplighting, His service exceeded my expectations both before and during the event. He took a lot of time during our initial communications to get to understand myself, my fiance, and what we were looking for. We met the week of the wedding to discuss further and I was really pleased to see in person what an energetic, friendly and accommodating guy he is! He did a fantastic job on the wedding day of dealing with small issues that came up with the venue and as an emcee. He was really witty yet professional. He does a really good job of keeping everything moving along nicely whilst making it seem effortless and easy. His music choices were great also, with ALL of my guests still raving about how much fun they had dancing to the music that was played. The uplighting was also beautiful. Overall I found Alan to be pleasant to deal with and highly responsive to what we wanted. I couldn't have found anyone better!

Alan DJ'd my wedding which also happened to be the same night we had a tsunami scare. Myself and all of our guests were stuck at our venue until the roads opened around 1:30am, we had booked him only until 10pm and Alan not only stayed late to help entertain us he also left us one of his high quality speakers to use until we were able to go home. We returned it to him the next day, it was very thoughtful!!
