Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
I work with my clients to create a custom play list for each segment of their events. Clients appreciate my efforts to keep volumes to a conversational level. I can adjust my personal style of interaction to reflect the wants of my clients.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
I welcome requests and match them against my do not play list provided by the clients. I also use discretion on my clients behalf and make every effort to play the most suitable requests.
What is your usual attire?
Based on the information I recieve from my clients during our consultations before the event I dress to match that of the theme or level of formality. Generaly I dress in a shirt and tie, dress pants and jacket.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I will make every effort to find the songs I do not have on behalf of my clients at no extra cost and with in reason.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I am a single operator and have an assistant, however in the event I am already booked on a specific date I can refer other DJs who's quality I believe in. I network with other DJs both locally and nationally so in the event of serious illness or death there are other Professionals available to complete the booking.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
I like to set up and finish sound checking my equipment at least two hours before guests are expected to arrive leaving about an hour for anyone who is giving a toast to practice over the mic. I most often book for cocktail, dinner and dance music and do not charge for the first hour of over time.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, I encourage it and never like to take on a client with out first offering them the oppourtunity to interview me. I never fax my contract, I will gladly travel with in a reasonable distance to meet potential clients when it is convenient for them.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
There is not much call in my area for ethnic type events, however if there was a request I would do my best to educate myself on any traditional dances or games. I have a large network of DJs from whom I continueally learn and share with about new ideas and trends.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes, I include a do not play list area on my contract. My clients can be confident that I have the skills and abilities to make it though the night with out playing the bird dance (for example).
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, further more, I also bring back up equipment in the event that something goes wrong.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Though my years as a Professional Entertainer I have learned that excessive lighting effects are more of an irritant to the older guests. I bring a small light show that is adequate for the dance floor and will not detract from the enjoyment of the event. I can if requested supply more lighting or special effects at an extra cost.
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?
When possible I would like 2 hours for setup. This is to allow for set up, sound checks and making sure my cords and cases are neatly tied/taped or put away. I supply my own 6 foot table.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No, I only require a 6 foot by 8 foot area for all stands, speakers, table and so on.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, people are hiring me for a private event. If people wish to know who my business is, I leave business cards at the bar and on my table. I use no other signage.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I can provide my services as an Emcee for an additional fee because of the amount of extra work I need to do in my planning. I can talk between songs, but only when nessesary.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Just because people are not dancing does not mean they are not enjoying the event. I regularly check with tables of people who I have not seen dancing for their requests. I try to use motivational music, line dances, jives and so on rather than talking over the mic to instruct a game to motivate people.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I do not take breaks, however I would appreciate being invited to eat as proper etiquette dictates.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
N/A I do not take breaks. If I need a quick bathroom break I have an assistant who is capeable of holding the fort.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I am a member of several DJ Associations and have a network of trusted DJs who I can call. I have never in 16 years never been availbale to work on a booked date.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No, each client is booked exclusively for their date.
What is your overtime rate?
I typically do not charge for the first hour of over time. Additional time after that may be charged on a mutually agreed on rate to be paid up front in cash.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
I charge $1 per Kilometer one way. Events over 200 KM away will require lodging to be paid by the client.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$300. The fee will be put towards the balance.

Teah Jay, your contribution to the tremendous success of our son’s wedding was absolutely first rate! We have had a dozen or more guests stop to talk to us last night and this morning who commented about your sensitivity, your consistent interaction with the crowd and your absolute professionalism. We both wanted to express our enthusiastic thanks for the efforts you made to help the bride and groom with the planning, the guidance you provided to the Emcees, and the way in which you set up the venue so that all guests, regardless of age or taste in music, were equally respected. Your thoughtfulness was evident throughout the night.

Our elderly folks who cannot tolerate loud music or “modern” music were able to stay well past 11pm and enjoy conversation at their tables because of the way in which you managed the speaker directions and the volumes. Meanwhile, nearly every musical taste was acknowledged to such a degree that the dance floor was busy the entire night! The bride and groom were able to interact with their guests and know that other guests were having a great time whether they were on the dance floor or not – and more often than not, they were indeed on the dance floor having a fantastic time.

I've had several guests tell me that this was “the best wedding we've ever been to” and while I realize that sort of tribute acknowledges the efforts of everyone who was involved in executing the entire night’s activities, it recognizes in no small part the efforts you made to ensure that our event was a success. Thank you Teah Jay!

TJ was the DJ for the intensive care unit Christmas party.
TJ provided very professional, responsible and reliable service.
After several years with poor quality sound systems for our party it was very refreshing to have great quality sound.
We had an ICU skit in which TJ was instrumental in providing lots of special effect sounds which brought our skit to another level.
TJ played the requests of all different genres of music and was quick to work on getting the crowd up and dancing.
A great time was had by all !
We wouldn't hesitate to refer TJ for any special occasion.
Thanks TJ!

Teah-Jay provided DJ services as well as a photo booth for our company Christmas party. His ability to work with our needs and respond to our audience at the event was excellent.
Everything worked out very well and we were surprised at the useage of the photo booth by the group. It went over very well and would be something unique to add to any company event.
