Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Our DJ's are experienced, skilled, savvy, smart, detailed and well-dressed professionals. Our MC's are experienced, talented, articulate, spontaneous, engaging and well-dressed entertainers.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Certainly not. We encourage requests from our brides and grooms as well as their guests.
What is your usual attire?
Chic and stylish, but not flamboyant.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Unlikely that we would not have a pre-requested song unless it is a language other than English. In that case, the client may surely provide it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We currently have fifteen DJ's and twelve MC's who are exclusively contracted to OUO.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Four hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Certainly.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Our entertainers are experienced in performing in all ethnic events.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
We absolutely encourage our clients to submit a do-not-play list.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, in addition to our Entertainment company, we own OUO Audio Visual, our full-service audio visual company located in our 25,000 sq.ft. warehouse in Roslyn, NY. Visit www.ouoav.com for more details.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer all types and categories of lighting and special effects from the basic effects lighting to intelligent lighting to LED's to yolk projectors and all atmospheric effects as well.
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 generally takes about one hour to set up most of our packages. Although it helps to have the site provide a 6-8 foot table, it is not required.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Depending on the package and the size of the venue, we may need extra space to store cases, cables, etc. If not, no problem. We can simply load it back to our truck.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
This is certainly contingent upon our clients. It would be appreciated if we are able to have an unobtrusive logo of our company but not necessary.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes, virtually all of our packages include an emcee (Master of Ceremony). Our emcees make announcements only when appropriate.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We incorporate what we call, "Ice breakers" which are games that ensure your guests come up to participate without embarrassing them which leads to them staying on the dance floor.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
There will always be an OUO staff available to "man the booth" at all times. Although it is not required, our clients generally do provide meals for our staff.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
There will always be "live" DJ during your reception.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
In an extremely unlikely event of an Act of God or severe emergency, we have twelve experienced MC's to serve as backups.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
We have multiple events every weekend and more than enough staff to cover each event. We do NOT book more than one event for each emcee at one time.
What is your overtime rate?
$300 per hour for a DJ and MC team. Dancers and other staff do not apply.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Outside of 50 mile radius, we charge a nominal fee.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$500 or 25% deposit (whichever is higher) is required to book our entertainment services.

OUO Entertainment provided a dj/mc and photo booth for our wedding. They were a bit unresponsive will trying to coordinate ahead of time after we signed the contract but everything came together on the day of. The DJ and Charlie (MC) were great with keeping the flow of the reception with announcing the wedding party, first dance, speeches, slideshow, ect. I was really excited about the photo booth but on the day of their screen (to see yourself) was not working so everyone was being really creative to make sure their pictures were taken. Everyone had a great time taking pictures with their awesome props and it was great to get a copy of all the photo strips.

I wasn't satisfied with their service. They change our MC at the day of our wedding day. The messed up the music during our ceremony. What a disaster and it will be forever immortalized on our wedding videos. Plus during the reception they were not playing much dance music for people to dance and also not accepting any requests. The party was not lively as I expected it to be. Should have gone with someone else.

Lawrence and Charles and their staff are fantastic! The bride and I did not know how were going to plan the event but with the assistance from the leadership of OUO Entertainment, they know how to make any event memorable. We signed up for DJ, MC and Lighting Including a Flippybook Package (You'll love it, see for yourself!) The whole package alleviated a lot of headaches and planning. We love their quality of service throughout the event and Charles is a true professional. He delivered our schedule precisely and the crowd loved his props he brought to the dance floor! The music selection from the DJ was on point and fit perfectly to our venue! To top it all off, the price was perfect for our budget for all the services we got. I have already recommended them to several of our engaged friends and I can rest assured they can deliver a memorable evening for anyone!

Want a lively party, a great DJ, and talented MC? You can find it all with OUO Entertainment. My guests were thoroughly impressed with how well Charles kept them entertained! Music was great, and the dance floor was packed - much thanks to our DJ, Dennis! OUO also got us an amazing string trio for our ceremony at Central Park! I worked with Lawrence the entire time - very professional and accommodating (he even provided us a little kit to help us with our planning). They've been in this business for a while now, so you're in good hands if you go with OUO.

OUO entertainment did a fantastic job at our wedding. Our contact, Lawrence was always responsive and attentive to our needs. He put us at ease and even helped in our wedding planning.

We chose Charles Young as our MC based on the videos that we saw from OUO. He was better than we could have imagined and had loads of charisma and personality. We would definitely recommend Charles and OUO as your Wedding entertainment.
