Great music is the foundation for any great party -- in this case your Wedding! Why should you be stuck with a lousy, uninspired, cheesy Wedding DJ. You shouldn't! So how can you tell the expertise from the cheese? Easy. You ask them to put their music where their mouth is: ask for a sample. Do you ever wonder why most Wedding DJs do not place a sample of their work on their website or other public forum? I do. It's because they aren't confident at their craft and ability as a DJ. I am. Because of that, I am offering the following challenge. After your free consultation, give me a list of 10 songs you envision playing at your Wedding Reception. I will make you a custom mix of those 10 songs the exact way that I would mix them at your Wedding. Once you have my mix, ask any of the other DJs you are interested in to do the same. If they even bother to give you a mix, I guarantee you mine will will be more enjoyable, entertaining, engaging and flawlessly executed. Whether you decide to choose us as your DJ or not, the Mix CD is yours free of charge, and our gift to you for checking us out!. Hearing is believing. Read less

Do you have liability insurance?

Describe your DJ style:
I would say that my style is Funky, Eclectic, Smooth & Witty, always being the consummate professional.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No! Our interview process allows us to gain insight to your favorites songs, artist, genres and help you find some that you didn't even know were your favorite. We take pride in our musical knowledge and would like to make sure that your event has the perfect soundtrack for your event.
What is your usual attire?
We come dressed to impress for your event.  However, if you are having a pool party, forgive us for not wearing a tuxedo.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Only if the song is by an unknown/unsigned artist. Otherwise, I firmly believe that we can fulfill any request made by clients.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Zero. When you hire Retro Verse MMS you are hiring the owner of the company. Because of this, we are able to pay extra special attention to all of our clients needs.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
4 Hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Oh course! We encourage meeting all of our clients before booking. BEWARE -- We will sweep you of your "Musical" feet!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Definitely.
Do you bring your own equipment?
We provide premium sound systems that are sleek and low profile, so not to take away from the overall atmosphere. A basic lighting system is included in every package (Advanced lighting available for additional cost) and a microphone setup for Toasts, Speeches and Announcements.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Never.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We emcee as much or as little as you would like. We pride ourselves on being the consummate professional, making sure everything goes as scheduled while offering insight, interjecting humor and getting all the guest involved.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
This is what separates the expertise from the cheese! Quite frankly, the way to a dancers heart is through music. We are experts at reading crowds and will always be five steps ahead of the crowd so that they are never bored or unmotivated.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We take zero breaks.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Never
What is your overtime rate?
$100 per half hour
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
For Weddings there is a 30% retainer fee required for booking.

Rob did an absolutely amazing job you did at our wedding reception. The music was exactly our taste, and kept people (myself included, which shocked me!) dancing the whole night! And I can't tell you how many compliments we got on the music - my sister-in-law said during dinner, "I just want to dance right now - this is fabulous!" and others said how they thought the music made the party seem so perfectly "us".

Plus, for a bride and groom who thought the music just wasn't that important to us, boy did he prove us wrong. I cannot count the number of times I excitedly said, "oh my gosh I LOVE this song!!" and ran back out to dance. And my mother (the self-described non-dancer) was on the dance floor the whole night, having an amazing time.

In the planning stages, Rob was responsive, professional, friendly and made sure to understand exactly what we wanted, and what would make us happy. And his use of Dropbox to communicate about musical taste was GENIUS. We would recommend Rob very highly!!

From the beginning of planning to the day of our wedding, Rob was amazing. His desire to give his clients exactly what they want is such a breath of fresh air in an industry of DJ's who just want to make a quick buck. He is a GENIUS when it comes to music and showed us with such knowledge and professionalism how you can mix different types of music to create a truly unique playlist for your wedding.
He was always available to get ahold of, and always made sure to call or e-mail to ask for my opinion on things. He was one of the few vendors who made me completely comfortable with exactly what was going to happen on my big day. Our guests were dancing the night away and kept commenting on how fun the music was.
He even coordinated a surprise with my brothers and sisters (who played me a song on the guitar) that brought the whole place to tears.
I can't say enough good things about Rob, and his work ethic, and my husband and I will be referring people to him for the next 10 years. :)

Thank you Rob, for making our wedding day perfect, and for making it "fit" our personalities so well. You are amazing!
