Describe your DJ style:
I consider myself to be an Entertainment Director, which means that you get a complete professional DJ Entertainment Experience. My Emcee skills and creating the perfect atmosphere is what sets me apart from other DJ's. I beleive that each event should be fun from the beginning to the end.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
There is not necessarily a limit, however I do recommend that you create a priority play list and a do not play list.
What is your usual attire?
Suit & Tie, but will also dress for the occasion. For example I have had several Country themed events where I will wear Cowboy Boots, Pressed Jeans, Dress Shirt and Sports Jacket
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I prefer to purchase the song if possible. If I do not have it, I will buy it. In the event that I can not find the song, I may request that you provide me with a copy.
How many other DJs do you work with?
It is just myself, which means if you hire my company, you will get me Eric Hovey
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Everything I do is customizable, so that depends on how long you would like me to be there.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
I allow my clients between 3-5 hours of personal one one consultation time.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
I can pretty much handle just about anything. I have a passion for Country Music and specifically Red Dirt Country. I also love Reggae. But for the most part I am universal and will do whatever you would like.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
I definitely recommend a "do not play list"
Do you bring your own equipment?
All of the sound equipent I bring will be customized to your needs. For example, for Ceremonies I provide a separate PA System including wireless lav mics and music playback. I can also provide multiple speaker set ups in different rooms or locations.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Uplighting has been very popular and helps with creating the atmosphere. I can also create a custom monogram projection with your initials and wedding date.
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 like to have atleast 2 hours for set up, but in some instances I may need more time depending on how many speakers and sound systems we are using. I am self contained and do not need any tables.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Not at all. However most DJ companies usually do have this which in my opinion does not fit in at a wedding.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
From introducing the wedding party, grand entrance, your first dance to the toast of the best man, I will be your personal Master of Ceremonies. Everything is tailored so that I can represent you whenever I am on the microphone in front of all your guests.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
I do travel quite a bit for weddings and the fee is based on distance and time.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
My deposit to secure the date is $500
