Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Promise to care as much about the wedding as the Bride and Groom. Always provide great, interactive fun (I have been known to get onto the dancefloor!), always the best music from any era, always with a mind to what keeps people dancing all night! Together we plan your night, so you'll hear all your favorite music. It's really a sharing experience!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
no limit! I try hard to get any reasonable request in. The night belongs to the crowd!
What is your usual attire?
Tuxedo, of course!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Only if I cannot find the song (very rarely happens!); also, I can download requests immediately at any event!
How many other DJs do you work with?
I play most of the weddings myself - I have 2 others DJ's if I'm overbooked, but I ALWAYS tell the bride about this during our initial meeting. Also, I bring an assistant to every show so I can be on the floor during all announcements.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
any.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! I always meet with clients, either at David's Bridal store or at their homes, before they book. It's absolutely necessary for the couple.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
I can play any Special Ethnic Music, as long as I can prepare beforehand. Italian, Spanish, Jewish, etc.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely. I encourage it.
Do you bring your own equipment?
I bring and use great sound equipment and lighting to every show. Also, I ALWAYS bring back-up equipment.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
I always bring a Full Light show, including Vue 3 color LED lights, swirling pulsing color, etc. It adds to the experience!
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 always arrive at least 1 hour before the event. The venue will provide me with a table and an electrical outlet.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
no.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Absolutely not! It's the Bride/Groom's Big Day, not an opportunity for self-promotion! Besides, a Big DJ sign in the middle of the reception is tacky! If guests like me they can ask for a card.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I speak when necessary...Announcements, Cake-Cutting, Bouquet, Anniversary Dance, maybe a bit to get the crowd up. Mostly I let the Music do the talking!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
I'd play the best music, and ask them to dance! It helps if the Bride/Groom/Party are out on the floor. Also, a nice interactive Cha-Cha or Electric Slide (line dance) will get them up! Finally, a couple love songs always seem to pull them from their chairs.
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 take breaks. A meal is greatly appreciated for me and my assistant, but I eat while I work!
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
If I need some time away from the set-up I always seamlessly play recorded music.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Again, I have 2 very experienced DJ's working for me. Either one will be happy to fill in. I've never missed an event in 20 years!
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Never. The day belongs to that Special Couple only. That way we can plan the day togther.
What is your overtime rate?
$100 every hour exceeding 5 hours.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Yes, generally half total cost, the rest due by the Wedding Day. However, I work closely with the bride and groom if they cannot afford half up front.

This is the DJ to go with for your wedding. Tom was exceptional. He is a true professional, courteous, and will listen to what you want played at your wedding. You do not feel as though this is just another wedding with Tom. Even though he does this for a living, he shows up for the wedding and performs like its his own child's wedding. Tom will get people on the dance floor and keep the party going all while playing the music you want played. My wife and I are not into the new age Pitbull/Kesha type music and after telling Tom we had no music of that kind played at our wedding. Go with Starry Nite Entertainment and you will not be disappointed.

"Tom;
Bill and I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did at our wedding! I honestly felt very comfortable working with you from the moment you were willing to plan out our wedding detail by detail at our house (on several occasions). I believe that it is your extreme attention to detail combined with your willingness to take requests/make adjustments that make you such a phenomenal DJ. I continue to receive phone calls from my guests who cannot believe how much fun they had! You and your assistant were so attentive throughout the entire wedding - we truly can't thank you enough! I definitely will remind Pete to book you ASAP- I know he would like you to DJ his wedding as well.

Best of everything and thank you again!!
P.S. I really did love the snow light!

We had such an awesome time at our wedding and received many compliments from our family and friends as well. Everyone appreciated that Tom played requests and our die-hard dancing friends loved the song selection so much they couldn't stop! There were family members on the dance floor who we've never seen dance before. People are still talking about what a great time they had two weeks later : )

We appreciated being able to meet with Tom beforehand for the planning and had no worries on the day of. All the formalities went beautifully and Tom handled everything so professionally; we felt totally at ease.

We highly recommend Starry Nite Entertainment!

A big “thank you” to Tom for going above and beyond to accommodate all of our musical requests! My sister used Tom two years ago for her wedding and he did such an awesome job that when it came time to look for my wedding, I knew I didn’t have to look any further.

From our initial meeting to my numerous emails back and forth with Tom (which he responded to in a super fast manner!) to our final meetings, Tom was professional, offered suggestions, explained everything that we had questions on, and gave us examples when we weren’t sure about what songs to pick for special parts of our big day.

Tom also did our ceremony which was outdoors and our cocktail hour which was immediately following indoors. He also did a slideshow before our entrances with custom-cut music in the background and was able to cut my father-daughter dance to not make it as long! We also went with the uplighting which is something that is new on Tom's list of extras and I couldn’t have been more pleased with how it turned out- the color matched my theme perfectly!

Everything went smoothly and without a hitch. The music was soft when it was supposed to be, loud when it was supposed to be, and people were on the dance floor and requesting songs the whole night! Thanks so much again for providing an amazing soundtrack to our wedding experience, Tom!

AMAZING! This was by far the best music, and best DJ we could have asked for. He made us laugh, cry, dance, and leave with the biggest smiles on our face. He is worth way more than he charges, which makes him such an unbelievable steal! You will pay more elsewhere and won't be half as satisfied. Tom was absolutely incredible.

I contacted Tom about my Connecticut wedding reception, which was on a Sunday. It was a very small event, and not his typical large weekend wedding. From the beginning, he was so helpful; he spent time on the phone with both me and my mom and spent lots of time going over the details of the day with us. His experience was imperative to planning a smooth and successful day. Tom seemed to really care about how the day went and that everyone had a good time. Everyone loved him and we got so much positive feedback about the flow of the day, the music and his warm personality. I highly recommend Tom for any event; big or small!!

Tom’s price was good, and reviews were also positive. We met with him the week before the wedding and felt really good. He had us fill out a packet of information about the wedding and provide him with a song list. We had trouble making a song list, because we just wanted him to use his skills as a professional DJ to keep the dance floor full. He insisted on a list, and we created one while we met. He basically said songs and we said yes or no to them. He was very flexible in allowing us to mix our own entrance song, which was nice. We’re giving him a B- because we weren’t really as impressed the day of the wedding. The guests seemed to enjoy themselves, and H and I did, but the dance floor was far from crowded and there was more than 1 occasion when almost everyone left the dance floor.

Tom was a great dj. Couldn't of been happier with the quality of music and sound as well as his selection of music. He played everything we asked for and then some!! Both the young generation as well as the old had a blast!!! He made sure to keep in touch with us every step of the way, making sure we didn't forget anything. Definitely would recommend him and his company to other brides...that's why I did a week later to a friend :)
