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, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Swing
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your usual attire?
We always default to black tuxedo, unless the client requests otherwise. We discuss attire during the planning process.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No - we will source the music ourselves and have it with us at the event.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes - we feel it's important for the client to build the relationship with their DJ in advance of the event itself.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely! We encourage a Do Not Play list and guarantee that nothing on that list will be played at your event.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer dancefloor lighting at no charge and at the client's request.
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?
It only takes about 20-30 minutes to setup but we always plan to arrive an hour before start time to allow plenty of time. We do require a table and ask that it be skirted so it matches the other tables in the room.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Absolutely not. We've always felt this was tacky at a wedding reception.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do ask if a meal will be provided so we can plan appropriately, but we do not require or expect a meal while we're working.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes. We do not take regular breaks, but if we are invited to eat dinner there will be music playing while we take a quick break to do so.
What is your overtime rate?
$75 per half hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No. The fee quoted covers travel, setup and break down time and the five hours of performance time.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$200 for our DJ services and an additional $200 if you are also booking a Photo Booth for your event.

I used Music on the Move for my wedding. They were wonderful and so creative! They came up with fun and interactive games (e.g., dollar dance and scavenger hunt musical chairs for the center piece) and played music according to our tastes. They DJ did an incredible job reading the crowd. They are SO affordable and the highest quality to boot! They are also so flexible, willing to meet YOU ANYWHERE! I would totally recommend them!

We used them for DJ and photobooth. Justin was extremely professional. He has an array of props for the photobooth and dance floor. All of my guests enjoyed the music and photobooth and I've enjoyed looking at all the silly pictures!

I have to say I was disappointed with Justin's service. I wish I hadn't written out tip checks ahead of time--I wouldn't have given them one.

I hired Justin after photographing a wedding he DJ-ed where he and assistant John knocked it out of the park! They kept the party rocking even to a playlist very unlike your usual wedding mix. Hence the reason I hired them.

I don't know if they got us mixed up with another couple or what, but things did not go as expected at our wedding. They completely ignored our music requests during the meal, people were practically falling asleep before we sent someone to go set them straight. We requested only two specific songs: one never got played and the other was played after the last dance as they were packing up and the room was empty. The people we requested it for had already left.

AND even after I specifically said no gimmicky games, activities, etc (of which there were none at the wedding I had photographed), when we arrived at the reception they were full swing into a competition between the tables involving running back and forth to the DJ stand to see who could get in line for food. The caterer was great and the food line was moving fast, so there wasn't any need to fill time.

Music on the Move was the only sub-par part of our day, and it was a total bummer because the DJ was the most important part to my groom.

We chose Justin from Music on the Move as our DJ for our wedding after meeting with him during a consultation. I received a recommendation from my coworker that got married the year before and had Justin as their DJ. Justin is wonderful to work with! He was very detail-oriented to ensure everything went as planned at our wedding reception and stayed on course. I would definitely recommend Justin to anyone looking for a wedding DJ!

Music on the move was very attentive to our need and extremely detail oriented. Justin had such fun and creative ideas that made our day unique, personal and extra special. They are very professional and trustworthy. I was very impressed with all the "behind the scenes" work. Justin put in a lot of time and effort and we appreciated that VERY much!

My husband and I chose Music on the Move for our wedding DJ. Justin, the owner, met with us several times and was very flexible about the meeting times. He made a lot of suggestions. He was very professional and gave us a packet to fill out with requests and a section for us to write down how to pronounce everyone's name in the wedding party. Everyone loved the music and our guests were dancing the entire time. We had a lot of our friends in their mid/ late 20's and a lot of people in their 60's. Justin did a nice job of playing music everyone liked.

Justin did a great job. The only reason I gave him a 4/5 for cost of value was because we chose to upgrade to a more expensive package in order to have 2 DJ's at our wedding. We were a bit surprised because the 2nd DJ did seemed to be quite young, like his daughter perhaps. We would have liked to have a more experienced experienced DJ since we paid the extra money but we were very pleased with the service and would definitely recommend Music on the Moves.

Music On The Move did all of the music for my 6/5/10 wedding and I really couldn't have been happier with their work!

I was thoroughly impressed from our very first meeting with Justin until the last song of the wedding night. Justin is great to work with, very knowledgeable, helpful, considerate, and overall just a nice guy. He initially asked us to detail everything we could think of for the music, from songs we didn't want played to songs played only if requested etc. Ours was especially different because of the Armenian music he was going to have to play in between all of the regular dancing songs. Luckily he had done a few Armenian weddings before so he was used to the craziness! We met with him a few months prior to the wedding and really went over every detail about the songs, timing etc. You could tell he really puts all of his time into this and that he genuinely wants to make your day memorable. We knew we were going to be happy.

The day of our wedding we had Justin play songs for our cocktail hour outside and then do all of the music for the sit down dinner and dancing inside. Justin even found the exact copy of 'Sugar Magnolia' by the Grateful Dead and cut it out to the exact portion my husband and I wanted to be introduced to. Not an easy thing to do! What impressed me even more was that when he introduced us and the bridal party he really was excited and it was reflected in his voice. That in turn really got everybody else excited. It was just a nice, genuine touch. What was amazing that night is HOW many people were dancing the WHOLE time. I have been to my fair share of weddings and many to where people just don't dance because the music simply doesn't inspire them. I've been to my fair share of weddings where only the younger people dance because of the music being played. Justin did a great job of mixing the music up to allow for all age groups to get on the dance floor from my 90 year old great aunt to my 23 year old brother. He did such a great job of reading the crowd and understanding the timing of the songs he was playing. He honored our requests for songs we didn't want played and did a great job of dispersing the Armenian music so that it made sense. He played light tap your toe kind of music during dinner that really kept people in the "dancing mindset" so to speak. We had asked him to keep the talking to a minimum with the exception of a few mentions we need him to make. He really adhered to our request.

I can't tell you how many compliments I got on the music. People were raving about Justin's ability to understand the event and the crowd and really play music to match the mood. He was very respectful of the older population during the earlier part of the reception and only broke out the top 20/pop kind of dance songs later in the night when the younger crowd was more inebriated and most of the older people had left.

I was very happy with my experience with Music On The Move and would suggest him to anybody having an event. I know he does a lot of office and corporate parties, kids parties etc. I didn't use it for my wedding, but I know he has a great variety of props, a snapshot booth, games he plays etc. It sounded like a lot of fun but didn't exactly fit with our wedding vision.

Really, an overall great experience and as far as DJ's go he is reasonably priced and really takes the cake with communicating with you and really caring to make your day the best it can be!

Planning a wedding in Davners while living in Indiana was nutso, thank goodness we didn't have to worry about the DJ. We met Justin twice before the wedding (the two times we were in Massachusetts) and both times he was great.

The day of, everything was great. Justin worked in requests from the guests, the volume was perfect. He went above and beyond our expectations.

My wife and I are DJs as well, so we knew the importance of the DJ at a wedding and truth be told, we couldn't have found a better one than Justin.
