INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Fun, professional, personable. Nothing rique, undignified, x-rated or objectionable.
 
 I am what my clients want.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No. Keep in mind that if an average song is 4 minutes in length then plan on having 15 songs per hour.
What is your usual attire?
Tuxedo unless my clients request a 'Theme' attire.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Not necessarily. I can acquire any song UNLESS it is an unpublished artist say a club band playing in a college town. Those I will request the song in mp3 or on cd.
How many other DJs do you work with?
None. I work alone.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
2 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Most definitely. Sometimes more than once because I want their big day experience with me to be a comforting one. I want them to feel so secure knowingthat they have selected the PERFECT DJ.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Yes. Russian, Greek, French and Spanish. I take direction very well and can accomodate any event the way my client(s) wish it to be performed.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
I always ask for this.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Everything needed to perform with back-ups on everything so that there is never any stoppage in the event.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
No lights, no fog, no bubble machines. Weddings are meant to showcase and highlight the main attraction..... the Bride and Groom. The afore mentioned items detract from the presence of the Guests Of Honor.
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?
20 minutes max.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
My only requirements are a 6 or 8 foot table and one electrical outlet. Period.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No. This is NOT my event. It is my CLIENTS event. I do have business cards to pass out if anyone inquires about my services for their event.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Both. I do as much interaction as my clients dictate.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Play the RIGHT songs.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I NEVER take breaks.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
I do that too.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I do have a stand by professional if I need in an emergency. In the past 26 years I've only had one emergency the day before the wedding reception and was able to give all of the info, music and equipment to my long time friend and stand-by.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Very rarely. Probably 3 times a year. If I have a simple Community family event (picnic, pool party, etc) that is very early in the morning and ends by 2pm, I'd be able to set up and be ready for a wedding ceremony/reception by 4pm.
What is your overtime rate?
NO. My rate is based upon UNLIMITED time. That includes travel, set up, take down, meeting as many times as needed and unlimited correspondence via phone and e-mail. I'm with my clients every step of the way to the BIG DAY.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
In some cases because of distance, I normally do based upon the travel time. Normally an hour drive one way is included in my unlimited flat fee.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
It is $200 with the balance due the day of the event (unless they'd like to pre pay in advance or make other arrangements)

Ray with Sounds Great Entertainment was awesome. Our wedding was everything that we hoped for and then some. I have received so many positive comments on the music selection from everybody that attended. From the Ceremony music all the way through the last song of the night!

I would refer him to anybody searching for a DJ in a heartbeat!

Very upset with this vendor's services. On the night of the wedding, DJ Ray spent most of his time at our bar and buffet table and had to be asked multiple times by guests and the groom to come back inside, get behind the DJ Table and play requested songs. The only reason we had a full dance floor was because 2 of our guests took control of his duties and used HIS equipment to play songs that guests wanted to hear. We would never recommend his services to anyone. Out of all the vendors we hired, he was the only one we were completely dissatisfied with their services.

Mr. Williams was very flexible and available for meeting us before the wedding. He was so great to work with. He provided us with a wide variety of songs, as well as finding songs we wanted. His service was excellent. He entertained the guests when it was needed, and played songs as we needed them played, as we did not have a strict schedule. He took requests during the reception. He arrived dressed in professional attire, and provided his own equipment. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ.

My wife and I hired DJ Ray Williams for our wedding reception on 3/16/2013 in Hilton Head. We were very pleased to have selected Ray for our big day. He was professional, punctual, played all the music we requested, and helped manage the evening in a non-obtrusive way. Wedding guests are still commenting my wife and I on how seamless the entire evening progressed - Ray was a big part of making everything flow in a timely and fun manner.
Ray was an excellent value for the quality of service he provided. I would highly recommend Ray as a wedding reception DJ for anyone looking to hire one in the Savannah/Hilton Head area.

After being told our original DJ was unable to make it due to being in an accident, I began to freak out! We had less than 48 hours to come up with something. Through our officiant, we were given DJ Ray's number and he was willing to drop his plans to help us at last minute! DJ Ray did an AMAZING job with song selections, transitions, and everything else on that day. I can honestly say that it was PERFECT!!!! Thank you so much :) Michael & Kelly

DJ Ray was great. It was very helpful to have him there to keep everything moving smoothly. We definitely needed someone there to tell everyone what to do since we didn't have a wedding planner. I would recommend him to anyone who was getting married. He also did my sister-in-law's wedding. She was also quite pleased.

Brides, I could not rate Ray higher then a 5, only because the website wont let me! He truly was a joy to work with! Fun, laid back, and for me since I of course had family issues he just looked at me smiled and told me to dance it off and I did! It was a fantastic night my guests LOVED him! He truly made my wedding everything I could have dreamed of!!! THANK YOU RAY!!!!

Ray Williams was absolutley wonderful. He was very professonal and quick to respond to all questions or comments that we had through out the planning process. Ray did both the music for our ceremony and reception. The ceremony was perfct and we have had tons of compliments on our reception and how much fun everyone had. He is very flexible, if he did not havea song he would go out of his way to make sure he could accommodate. It also rained right up until the time of our outdoor wedding; so not only was it wet outside, the time was pushed back. Ray was able to adjust with his equipment and fit in the things that he knew were most important to us without a problem and it all flowed so smoothly. We highly highly recommend Dj Ray!

DJ Ray was awesome and he really did a great job with announcing everyone and kept the flow of the reception going well. I provided him with an itinerary for the reception and he did an awesome job sticking to the itinerary for us. We provided him with a music list and he played everything we wanted him to. We would recommend him to any other couple looking for a DJ for their wedding!

Memorable Moments Photography provided phenomenal service for our wedding and reception. Their price was very economical, and every dollar was certainly earned based on the amount of work and professionalism shown. When plans changed completely due to rain, they continued to make everything run smoothly as if nothing had even changed. Definitely recommend them for your event.
