Describe your DJ style:
I am communicative to my audience but never over the top. I strive to entertain and reach all guests with great music. I believe the focus should be the newlweds, family and friends and not the DJ.
What is your usual attire?
Typically I wear a conservative black tuxedo, however I am happy to accommodate a client's request to wear something different.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Sounds Great DJ will provide all music requested.
How many other DJs do you work with?
If you engage me for your wedding I will be the only DJ you will work with.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
I find most weddings are five hours. The minimum is 4 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
All clients are invited to meet personally with me. It is very important to clearly understand the client's music likes and dislikes. I am detail oriented and find this reflects in a smooth, well organized reception.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
I do not specialize in ethnic events but I have successfully provided DJ service for international weddings.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, we provide top of the line professional equipment for every event from the following Manufacturer's: Denon, JBL, Shure, Toshiba and Rane. We carry spare equipment to every event.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Dance floor lighting.
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?
My set up time for wedding receptions is typically 1.25 hours. Sometimes the set up time is longer if there is a ceremony or cocktail audio set up. I always request a standard 6 ft. folding table be provided.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
My emcee announcements focus on the reception activities and keeping the guests well informed. I believe the focus is the event and not the DJ.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Meals are never expected but always welcome.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
no.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, I have three independent DJ's that can step in to substitute for me in an emergency. Fortunately, I have never missed and event.
What is your overtime rate?
If the client needs us to play for longer than the contracted time we bill at the normal rate, minimum 1/2 hour. Usually, if we are asked to play 1 or 2 songs after the allotted time we do not charge for this.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
There is no charge for travel expenses.

Chip was absolutely fantastic. He worked with us right up to the day of the wedding, and when the day finally came he certainly delivered. We would highly recommend Chip to anyone.

We held our wedding at Mistral in Boston. We live in Minneapolis so almost all of the planning was done via email. Chip from Sounds Great Entertainment did a great job for us. We sent him music we wanted to hear during the reception and he covered everything. He was very responsive to our emails and showed up early to set up. He dressed impeccably and did a great job of reading the crowd and tailoring the music for a great night. We highly recommend Chip. Thank you!

Chip did an amazing job catering to me and my husband as well as our crowd. He gave us key suggestions to make our night go as smoothly as possible. We had a great time and he made our wedding fun and lively. Also he took the time to check with us questionable songs our guests requested to make sure both we and our guests had the best time. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

Chip was great. I asked for "rat pack" stuff while we ate and Motown for dancing. He not only had everything we were looking for he he blended the two seemlessly. I recomend Sounds Great Entertainment to every one. Fantastic selection and a great price.

We hired Chip for our wedding last summer and have nothing but good things to say. He was professional and very easy to work with. We met twice before the wedding to talk about preferences, and he delivered just what we asked for. He also offered advice about what works during a wedding, which was helpful. Our guests all had a wonderful time and the dance floor was full all night. He helped make sure the whole night ran smoothly, so my husband and I could enjoy ourselves.

Chip was exceptional!! He truly understood what our guests wanted to hear, what kind of music best suited us, and was flexible with song requests. He provided mobile equipment to our cocktail hour across the hall. His attitude was energetic and fun. We had a wonderful time with Chip and would recommend Sounds Great DJ to everyone!
