Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Requests are limited by the amount of time we are contracted for. However, we do appreciate couples who value our expertise and let us use a few of their requests to create an awesome wedding day for them.
What is your usual attire?
Tux pants, tux shirt with tie and cumberbund or vest. Will dress to accommodate clients wishes.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Only if we cannot legally purchase it or if it is a small local indie band.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
We prefer to meet with you before you ever decide to book us. This is a very important day for you and you want to know that you have chosen the right entertainment for you.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Do you bring your own equipment?
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We have two lighting effects available at no additional charge. Other lighting is available for a small fee. Diana on our staff is one of a limited number of certified Love Story presenters in Colorado.
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?
One hour is standard for set up but could be longer if you have special needs. We bring our own DJ booth so you do not need to provide a table for us.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We do not use signs or banners when performing at YOUR wedding.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Being your Master of Ceremonies is extremely important to us. It helps you and your guests know what is going on and when it will happen. We do not talk between songs.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Not all brides and grooms are looking for dance music. Some want a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere with no pressure to dance. Others want their guests to dance and have a good time. We listen to what you want and act accordingly. By getting to know your guests before the dancing even starts we already have a good feel for what they want to hear and to dance to. One thing we will not do is intimidate or embarrass your guests into dancing.
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. Meals are only required if we are scheduled to perform for more than six hours. However, if you want to feed us we certainly will not have the bad manners to turn you down.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Have a backup DJ on standby and the backup for that is our association with a network of five other professional DJs who are all excellent. We watch each other's backs. We have never missed a wedding.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Usually not. Sometimes we may do a morning event and then schedule an evening event.
What is your overtime rate?
$100.00 per hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We do charge for travel expenses if your wedding is more than 50 miles from our base of operations. If your wedding is more than three hours travel time and your wedding ends after 10 PM, we will require overnight lodging.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$350.00 or 50% if total fee is less than $700.00
