Describe your DJ style:
My style of DJ'ing is a combination of skill, professionalism, and good music! Since I was 5 years old, I have been playing and performing music. I play multiple instruments and multiple genres. My experience on stage, as well as behind a DJ booth, has given me the skill to read crowds, select appropriate music that will get people dancing, and host an event from start to finish eloquently and professionally. I am definitely NOT the type of DJ that will treat your wedding like an open-mic night or an audition. I am not all over the microphone all the time trying to be cool or funny. I realize that your event is not about me, it's about you, and I will do my best to showcase that.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
This is a yes/no answer. When it comes to the bride and groom, I will accomodate all requests. Most times, I already have the music you request in my collection. If I do not have a song, then I purchase it through iTunes at no additional cost to the bride and groom. I can also help in picking out formal songs and shaping the pace of the open dance floor.
 
 The "no" part of the answer applies to the actual event itself. The day of the event, I will already have all the music planned out and ready to go. At most events, guests will request songs, and while I will do my best to accomodate every request, some requests just can't be played. Sometimes guests choose inappropriate songs, or songs that will clash with the bride and groom's musical taste, or sometimes guests want to plug in their iPhones or other devices into my equipment to play a particular song. In these circumstances, I will not accomodate requests from the guests. But when it comes to the bride and groom, I will do whatever is asked of me.
What is your usual attire?
I always dress professionally for every event. My normal attire is a black on black suit with black shoes and a nice tie. If you have a specific color theme for your wedding or would like me to wear a particular piece of clothing, we can discuss those details at the time of booking.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Absolutely not. It is my job to play the music you want to hear. If I do not have a particular song pre-requested by the bride and groom, I will purchase it through iTunes or other legitimate and legal sources.
How many other DJs do you work with?
On the day of the event, I will be by myself, but I have a network of other DJ's to help in case of an emergency.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
My usual minimum is two hours, however I am willing to work with all time-frames and budgets.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! In fact, it is imperative that I meet with the client at least once before the event, usually twice. This gives us a chance to talk face to face about your needs and my services.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely! The client can have as much or as little control over the music as they'd like. I highly reccommend a "do-not-play" list, because it gives me a better idea of your musical tastes which allows me to better serve you and your guests.
Do you bring your own equipment?
I bring all of my own equipment to every event. This includes a full DJ system with professional grade speakers, power amps, wireless microphones, dual CD-decks, mixers, lighting, etc... I prefer to only use my own equipment and to not use "house systems". I am comfortable and familiar with my equipment and also run routine diagnostics checks to ensure everything is up to par on your special day.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Every wedding gets a professional DJ lighting package with an optional smoke machine if desired. DJ lighting should not be confused with "room" or "mood" lighting, which usually consists of multiple sets of lights placed in stationary locations throughout the room. Usually, the venue provides room lighting.
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 usually like to get between 90 minutes and 2 hours to setup. This allows me sufficient time to unload my equipment, park the car, set everything up including lights, soundcheck everything, then coordinate with the venue and any other vendors to get everyone on the same page. I do not require a table or anything else to set-up. All I need is a direct-to-wall plug socket and I am good to go.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Not really, I can usually make it work in any space. The average size of my set-up including lights is about 8 X 8 feet.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No. Your event is about you, not about me. I will not use your event as a promotional avenue for my services.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Most events require some talking/emcee skills. Weddings in particular have the most microphone announcements because of the grand entrance, formal dances, cake cutting, meal service, etc... I want to emphasize that I only say what is necessary when it is necessary. I am not there to perform an "act" or a "comedy routine", I am there to make your event special. Most announcements take about 30 seconds with the exception of the grand entrance. I try to limit these announcements as much as possible so that the guests can enjoy the music and the uninterrupted atmosphere.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Other than the occasional restroom break, I do not take breaks at events. I eat before the event and prepare myself to do the whole event from start to finish without a break. I do not require that the client provide with a meal, nor do I usually eat during an event.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Throughout my entire career as a DJ, I have never missed an event. If there is an extreme emergency, I have back-up DJs to call. I will be sure to provide them with all the info regarding the event from music to timelines, etc...
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Absolutely not. I want to ensure that I give my undivided attention and energy to each and every event, and doing two events in one day does not allow for that.
What is your overtime rate?
My standard overtime rate is $100 per hour, however this is always negotiable and subject to change per event. I normally discuss the overtime rate with every client while booking the event.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Outside of the quote I offer a client, I do not charge an additional fee for travel. As with any business, I factor in all of my expenses when I decide on a rate for an event.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
The requirements to book my services are a signed contract along with a $100 deposit.

Gabriel Soriano, from Pacific Summit DJ, was absolutely amazing. He was a true professional: prior to the event, e-mail and phone communication (I married out of state) was prompt, and any questions or special requests I had were addressed immediately. I even planned a surprise for my husband during the ceremony, and Gabriel was very sensitive to this and discrete!

On the day of the event, he arrived several hours early for set up and sound check, so everything ran perfectly smoothly from the start of the ceremony to the end of the reception. Every transition was flawless and tastefully done. He was gracious in taking song requests, and his song selection was perfect. There was never a lull; people were always on the floor dancing to either the fast or slow songs.

At the end of the reception, our crowd even tried to get him to stay longer, but due to the Laguna Beach zoning restrictions, he legally couldn't. But he was so good, we all wanted him to! He even gave us a surprise gift at the end of the night, which was very sweet.

As far as value, he had one of the lowest prices, but the quality was outstanding. We are already planning a 5 year vow renewal, and we want him back as our DJ (if he's available!).

I cannot stress how great of a DJ Gabriel was- professional, easy to work with, skilled, punctual, fun, reliable!

Gabriel was the BOMB! He was quick to respond to my emails and calls, and wasn't upset when I was slow to get him the song list! His contract and song list packet made my (now) husband's and my job so easy. We paid far less for his service than so many other companies, without compromising excellence. Our wedding was all outdoors, and he was able to provide a microphone and speakers for the ceremony as well as a separate system for the reception, both of which had the right volume for the audience. He was at the site way ahead of schedule, was very timely speaking with me when I arrived at the site, and made sure my husband I were aware of any time changes before the ceremony and during the reception (everything about the reception ran late!) The music selection was great, and we heard nothing but compliments from all of our guests. Gabriel went above and beyond to make sure everything was going as smoothly as possible, making announcements at the right time and getting the reception going. I cannot fully express how wonderful Pacific Summit DJ service was, and how much of a difference he made in everybody's enjoyment! Thank you so much Gabriel Soriano!

Hiring Gabe as our DJ was by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Gabe was referred to us through a friend and he did not disappoint. From our first email he was easy to work with. He just got us and our vision for our wedding right away. He is one of those guys that you would want to hang out with anyway, so having him at our wedding was like having another awesome friend there.

He gave us great advice on picking wedding songs and didn't blink an eye at our crazy music tastes.

Picking a DJ is one of those big decisions for every wedding because not only are they the ones that get people dancing, but the DJ also makes all of the announcements, keeps the schedule going, and can basically make or break your wedding. We were so beyond impressed with Gabe. He made our night fun and took care of everything we asked for.

He made our wedding so much fun. Everyone was dancing all night. So often weddings can get quiet, but he kept the energy up and people dancing until the venue was kicking us out. Seriously he made our night magical.

If you want a flawless wedding this is your DJ.

Pacific Summit D.J. service was absolutly wonderful. Dancing and having a good party at our wedding was one of the most important things. Gabe made all of our dreams come true and more! We danced the night away and have had amazing feedback from all of our guests. Everyone has told us it was the best wedding they had been to and it was such a great party. Gabe took the time to take ALL of our song requests prior to the wedding. He played a perfect playlist throughout the night. We were so lucky to have Pacific Summit D.J. our wedding.

Gabe was a great DJ!!! He made my reception so much fun. He interacted with the guest and had a fantastic time line. Gabe helped keep the party flowing wiht the pefect songs during our dinner time and the after party. Even my grandma was up dancing. I was suprised when my grandma asked for a certin song that he had it. I think that made her night which made my night.
I would recomend Gabe to anyone who wanted to have great party without having to worry about anything.
