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, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Fun & Professional! Customized for you.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No! However in a 4 hour dance period, there is only enough actual time for about 50 songs. That is not including any events, guest requests and DJ plays. We recommend that you pick 12-15 MUST PLAY songs - this way we can play every single one of your most important songs. We also will still have room for a couple guest requests and events, and for the DJ to choose a few selections based off of your music tastes from your must play list. Don't worry, you're in GREAT hands.
What is your usual attire?
Professional & Classy. Our DJ’s apparel typically includes a formal button down shirt, slacks, dress shoes, and a tie. Many of our DJ’s even wear full out Tuxedos.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, as long as we can legally purchase the song, we will provide as many custom songs that we do not already have in our library, for free!
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
3 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
ABSOLUTELY! Schedule an appointment and come visit us in our office - we would love to meet you!
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Yes! ALL are welcome at Midwest Sound DJ Entertainment.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely! We have an expansive library containing thousands of the most popular wedding reception songs. This list is available on our online planning portal at midwestsound.com, for all of our potential clients to peruse. You can mark songs for us to play as well as songs NOT to play. Best yet, if there are songs that you want to have played and we don't have them in our library, as long as we can legally purchase the songs, we will include them for no additional charge!
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes! All we require is that you ensure a 6ft or 8ft table will be provided for your DJ and some sort of ' table skirting'. It doesn't have to be fancy, it can be a regular table cloth.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We have a state-of-the-art 8 unit intelligent light show system, that is included standard in every package! Mirror ball, Strobe, Colored Wash lighting, Laser, Dancing Color Dots + more! All of our lighting is "intelligent lighting" - meaning they all contain internal microphones so they will move to the beat of the music! The DJ also has full control over all the lighting equipment. All the way from a club setting down to a classy ballroom fell. We also have plenty more enhancements available for additional pricing.
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?
We arrive on site 90-minutes before the start of your event. We come prepared and ready to rock!
Do you have any extra space requirements?
A little elbow room please! :)
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
You can select the level of DJ interaction in your planning forms. We promise we will match you with the perfect DJ personality tailored to fit your unique tastes.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
By being the life of the party! We are never dull.
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 require breaks. However, it is usual and customary that we are provided a dinner - but it is not required. If you plan on not including us as a part of dinner, please let your DJ know in your planning forms/client call - so we don't go hungry and can bring our own meal!
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We've never missed a show in 38 years. We always have multiple on-call DJ's ready and waiting in case your DJ became ill or had a family emergency, etc. We also send out our Dj's with backup equipment - so if their mixer was to fail 15 minutes before your grand march - no problem! We have an extra.
What is your overtime rate?
If the venue allows it, we will extend our performance time at a rate of $150/hr.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
.50 cents a mile one way - starting outside of the Milawaukee Area. Our travel radius covers up to 200 miles from our Office.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
It is super easy to reserve with us - all we require is a $195 deposit, which is non-refundable and comes right off the top off your remaining balance. You are welcome to make subsequent payments but you are not required to pay the rest of the balance until as late as the day of your event - you can hand the DJ Cash or a Check made out to Midwest Sound DJ Entertainment.

I was skeptical when I found out my fiancé had booked Midwest Sound over the other DJ company our venue permitted. There was SUCH a price difference between the two - Midwest Sound being nearly $500 cheaper than the other - that I figured we might not be getting very good service. However, I was really impressed with our DJ and my guests LOVED the music! It worked out great! Once you book, you do not find out who your DJ is until the week of, which had be also a bit concerned but turned out to be no big deal. Our assigned DJ (Dan) called the Monday before our wedding to go over some details and to hash out a plan (fully acknowledging that he'll go with the flow of the event and nothing was set in stone). We also were able to book him literally last minute to work the sound for our ceremony too, as our plans for that fell through. I appreciated how flexible and prompt they were with that addition, and that they didn't charge us an arm and a leg to add him on for those extra couple hours. When we arrived to the venue Dan introduced himself and checked in to make sure we were still good to go on timing and song choices. He read the crowd perfectly and played all the right songs to get our various age groups dancing. Overall I was very impressed with Midwest Sound and DJ Dan, and our guests had a blast with him!

For our wedding ceremony and reception we had Alfonso as our DJ. We thought he did a phenomenal job giving us the music and energy that we wanted for our guests. He was upbeat and fun, followed our song list and was just generally a very nice and appreciative guy. I have no regrets going with Midwest sound and strongly recommend Alfonso. Many of our guests commented on how he did a great job as well.

We had many of our guests come up to us and say it was one of the best parties they had been to. So many of them commented on how wonderful a job the DJ did - one of the best entertainers they had seen at a wedding. Our DJ was super helpful in helping us plan some games and get the crowd involved. Their online planning tool option was a really nice option for my fiance and I who work opposite schedules. All the different people who picked up the phone when we would call in with questions were super nice and helpful. Also did an awesome job with the uplighting we hired them to do for a very reasonable price. Very personal feel the entire time we worked with them - would recommend to anybody!
