Do you have liability insurance?
No
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No limits to any music requested. If you want something played, I will honor that request and be sure to play it.
What is your usual attire?
I am a very classy individual and will wear a suit and button down shirt. I will gladly match any color requests that you have for your wedding.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, I will usually track down the song. However, if I cannot find it in an appropriate amount of time, it is always appreciated if the client can provide it for me, not required.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Just myself. I keep my company small so that I can guarantee the service.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
3 hours minimum
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, I offer the first consultation visit for free at an agreed upon meeting place.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely, and I will honor that. Also, if a client requests that guests are not allowed to make requests, I will honor that as well.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Special equipment is not included, however, I do have access to additional lighting and features that are on a request basis.
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 be early, so 1 hour is sufficient for me to set up. I provide my own 4x4 table and black tablecloth, however, if a different color is requested, that needs to be provided by the client.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
I need about a 4x8 space to work with, including my table and speaker stands.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I will emcee the event at clients request, and I don't generally talk between songs unless there is a request to do so. I don't want to bore you with my voice when you should be dancing.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
I play the right music to make the party run smoothly and with lots of energy. I won't force anyone to dance, but I can guarantee that I will play music they want to dance to.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I don't require a meal, although meals are always a nice gesture. If at the beginning of the night I am offered a meal, I will set up a playlist for the appropriate amount of time for me to eat, so that the music keeps playing.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No
What is your overtime rate?
Same hourly rate, cash only
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
$25 for 1-50 miles over 20 miles from my location.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
50% down, 50% at the start of the event.

Ryan was an absolute gem! During the planning process I had a lot of questions and he was always more than willing to answer them, and even make some helpful suggestions. I was stumped for what song I should walk down the aisle to, and Ryan helped me figure it out. With walking down the aisle Ryan actually played a song on the keyboard for us, and it was absolutely lovely!

Orignally we were going to do seperate father/daughter and son/ mother dance, but we ended up doing them together and he was able to accomodate the last minute change! I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an easy going dj, that is full of helpful suggestions.
