Describe your DJ style:
Most of my business is wedding entertainment and I tend to remain focused on a client's comfort level. Most of my clients are spending a lot of money on their wedding and most want to maintain a higher level of elegance and professionalism. I want the focus to be on the audience that I am entertaining, and make it less about me.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
I allow all of my clients to choose the music for their event, and I also allow them the option of allowing their guests to make requests. I will create a playlist prior to the event and I make every effort to stick to it. There are times when a crowd may not be responding to the songs that were chosen and I will then, and only then, deviate from that list to get the crowd dancing and keep them dancing. Most clients trust me with the music selections.
What is your usual attire?
I dress according to the occasion. For weddings and corporate events, I wear a suit and tie, or tuxedo. For school dances and fundraisers, the weather and setting determines my attire.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No. I will purchase the music for the First Dance, Father/Bride Dance, Mother/Groom Dance - if I do not already have it already in my library.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
3 hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, I require a minimum of one in-person meeting before booking. This gives us a chance to learn more about each other and what the expectations are.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
No.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
ADJ and Chauvet uplighting and special-effects dance floor lighting. This is an optional choice for the client for a reasonable priced, additional charge.
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?
Depending on the amount of sound equipment, lighting, and complexity of the venue - it can take anywhere from a half hour to 2 hours for setup and take down. If the client prefers to provide a table that is fine, but I can provide my own tables if needed.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
By understanding the crowd and their particular tastes in music, it is usually easy to keep people 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?
Occasional bathroom break. I do not request a meal.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a DJ that can step in - if that happens.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No.
What is your overtime rate?
$75.00 an hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
$1.00 per mile for each mile over 50 from home base.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$100.00

Ricky did a great job at our wedding. He listened to what we wanted, was always happy to meet with us and listen to whatever questions I had. Also, he suggested some up-lighting that at first I was not sure about but it made a huge difference at the wedding. We enjoyed working with Ricky and would recommend him for your event without question!
