Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No limit. We love taking requests.
What is your usual attire?
Tuxedos are worn to most events. However, we never shy away from the perfect theme costume to enhance your party style.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No. Never. We will provide the music at no additional cost to you. Being computerized, in most cases, we can purchase the song on the spot if we don't carry it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
There are 3 entertainers to choose from at The GiG Entertainment.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We have done :45 minute events to 10 hour events.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely. We want you to be completely comfortable with the person you choose for your event.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
No.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely. In fact, we will supply you with a link to your personal music request space on our website. There, you'll be able to request any music you'd like to have - or - not have played.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes. The GiG Entertainment has the ability, and knowledge, to customize a sound, lighting, and video package for any occasion. Experienced technicians can turn any room or outdoor venue into an awards show. A rock concert. A video dance party. Or an historic event.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We have a wide variety of specialty lighting, trussing, video projection and more for you to choose from. How can we make your event special?
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?
On standard DJ events, a (1) hour time period is needed for set-up. If your event will require lighting, at least (2) hours will be needed. And if you'll be adding video support, (4) hours will be required for set-up.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
This all depends on the type of event that we will be doing for the client. For standard DJ events, no.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Absolutely NOT. We are not the star... you are.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes. But this also depends on how interactive the client wishes us to be.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Interactive dances are a great way to get the crowd moving. We can also incorporate contests and prize give-aways.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Suffering through 15-minute band breaks every half hour (on your dime)? The GiG Entertainment performs non-stop. Their energetic entertainers assure the music and fun never ends.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Being a member of the Global Mobile Entertainers Association has its benefits. One of which is the network of quality DJ's that we can turn to in the unlikely event that your DJ becomes unavailable.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No. One DJ per show / per day. No exceptions!
What is your overtime rate?
$125.00 per half hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
A travel charge is based on the amount of mileage to and from an event. If extended traveling is necessary, a Per Diem charge and hotel accommodations must be made available to the performer.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
A 35% retainer secures the event date and is NON-REFUNDABLE.
