Do you have liability insurance?

Describe your DJ style:
There are many different "DJ types" in the world. We won't pretend to be a perfect match for everyone. We don't bring blow-up props, and we know full well that your guests aren't there to see us perform. We take pride in being well-spoken and professional, without the cheesy "game show" delivery that often gives mobile DJs a bad name. Our level of interaction is entirely up to you, but our general focus is on the most important announcing: Enthusiastically introducing the newlyweds and their wedding party, your first dance, announcing the cake cutting, bouquet & garter toss events or other formalities you opt for, and keeping most other announcements to a minimum. We're not the star of the show, you are.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Not really. If you have the perfect vision for your reception, we'll help you bring it to life. If you'd rather leave it up to us, that's great too. We're experts at reading a crowd, and impromptu requests are always welcomed. 
 
 Our online planning tools allow you to add songs to your play-list, or a Do-Not-play list. We'll gladly fill in the blanks based on your personal tastes. 
What is your usual attire?
Dark Suit.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No. In the unlikely event we don't have it, we'll get it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Most events are handled by me personally. 
 I'll be your point of contact from day one, throughout all planning, and the MC at your wedding. I also have a staff of 4 talented professionals who assist with certain events.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
3 Hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Some.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes, absolutely.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
For room ambiance, we offer modern LED accent lighting / Uplighting to match the colors of your wedding theme, or any custom color you prefer. We also offer Name/Monogram projection. 
 
 Our versatile DMX dance lighting syncs to the music and set the mood for dancing. Our dance lighting is tasteful and never an eyesore.
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?
At the minimum, we require 60 minutes setup time. Ideally, 1.5-2 hours is preferred. We can bring our own table, but in most cases, the venue provides a banquet table generally dressed with linens/skirting to match the other facility tables to provide a better overall presentation for your reception.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, never.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We do emcee the event, provide all the necessary announcements, and act as your personal host for the evenings festivities. We do not talk between songs, and are never on the microphone without a specific reason; to direct, inform, or guide your guests.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We prefer careful song selection. We're great at reading a crowd and finding just the right song to kick things off on the dance floor. We may also invite folks to make requests, but this would be done in a jovial, professional manner. It's not our style to be "hype-men" or the "wild and wacky" DJ who drags folks onto 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?
We're always very grateful when a client offers a meal, but we never require it. We also never require breaks other than the occasional bathroom break, and at no time would the music stop for a break during your event.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes. We believe the music at your reception should never be interrupted by anything other than important announcements.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Any of my 4 assistants can step into the role of DJ and MC. Additionally We have a network of local DJs who are seasoned professionals.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No. We strictly focus on ONE wedding per date.
What is your overtime rate?
Generally $150/Hr for a wedding reception.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Within roughly 1.5 hours of travel from Syracuse, NY. We'll usually provide services outside of that with a nominal travel fee.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We require a 30% retainer to secure your date.

Words cannot express the amazing job he did! Everyone had the best time and he definitely got the party started, you should see the pictures! The uplighting was beautiful, the music was great...and the photobooth...the best! I was hesitant about the photobooth at first because it was an added expense. However, that was probably one of THE BEST decisions we made. Everyone, including grandparents, loved the photobooth. And the album we have from it was just the best. The monogram dance floor lighting was perfect for showing us off as a new couple. As an out of town bride, it was difficult to pick vendors, but this was a perfect match! He always answered my million+ calls and emails and helped me plan out the order of events for the reception. It was such a beautiful wedding thanks to him!

Kirk rocks! His playlist for the reception perfectly captured what we wanted and kept everyone on the dance floor (until they basically collapsed from exhaustion). We've even had requests for the exact playlist from guests. He was extremely accommodating to all our requests, and making sure the reception ran smoothly. His recommendations were spot on, and we're so glad we had his experience to help us plan the timeline. His introductions for the bridal party were perfect (combining three songs), and made awesome transitions between songs, which was totally unexpected. We definitely recommend him!

Planning was so easy with the company website! Kirk and his assistant were so professional. Our guests arrived much earlier than we had anticipated and he started playing music right away even though he was not contracted to for that long. He went above and beyond for us as a great DJ would.

Kirth Rothrum of Select Receptions was a pleasure to work with! While planning my wedding, Kirk would respond to e-mails and phone calls promptly and was always professional!

Kirk was such a pleasure to work with! We were able to talk with him several times prior to our big day. We skyped, met with him over coffee and exchanged several emails. He is completely dedicated to his clients, friendly, fun, open to ideas, professional, and incredibly talented! we knew right after our first conversation with him that he would be our DJ. My husband and I had a particular vision for the evening and he rocked the house perfectly. The dance floor was busy the entire night (and our reception was extra long!). Everyone kept telling us how great the music was and how impressed they were. We couldn't be happier with our selection! We highly recommend Kirk!!
