What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Big Band, Classic Rock, Country, Dance, Funk, Hip Hop, Motown, Oldies
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Congratulations on your engagement and fast-approaching Wedding Day!
 
 "Life should be celebrated and most of all lived!"
 
 This is what your wedding day should be about living life and celebrating it with friends and family.
 
 When looking for wedding entertainment over the years couples have been told in bridal magazines, online and just out of never getting married before have been told or assumed to shop for a ?DJ? or "Music" but in the end what they really needed was a talented and appropriate entertainer for the evening.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Not At all, each wedding is customized around my clients, their desires and tastes.
What is your usual attire?
Normally I will wear a suit, french cuff, cuff links, and tie. Never over dressing the hosts but always professional
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I am hired to provide music and entertainment so I will take care of getting all music needed if it happens I do not have it
How many other DJs do you work with?
When you book with Zach Downing entertainment, you get Zach Downing. If you come in and talk to me and I am not the right fit for you I am happy to recommend associates that might work better for your event.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Normally weddings & most social events are four hours in length. A great wedding can be brought to its knees by "beating a dead hours" in the 12th hour...use reality and a real timeline..this is what I will work on with you.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, I require that all potential clients come in to meet with me, I am happy to invest the time to let you get to see if I am a great fit with you and your once in a lifetime day.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Not that I know of!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes we customize each event around you and your wants and your DO NOT wants!
Do you bring your own equipment?
I use only only BOSE sound equipment for the best possible sound at your wedding & special day! 
 
 Anything else is ordinary!
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We have great lighting options, but never force you to have a "cheesy disco" at your wedding....we can talk about this
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?
Normally I can setup in around an hour, but I like to arrive at least two hours early to setup, change into my suit, take a drink and relax before guests arrive to be your spokesperson for the evening.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Never hang a sign, never have neon lights, never even say my name on the microphone, this night is about YOU and YOUR wedding..why would you want a thunderbolt behind you in all your photos?
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
This isn't a radio show..this is a wedding...if you want a DJ that talks between songs, there are many others to choose from.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
There are many ways to help your guests relax, get comfortable and dance without having to use "cheesy crutches" that a lot of "DJ's" like to try to use.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Never...I am there to perform not enjoy a meal
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
There are no breaks of course..
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes I always have a great network of backups although I have never missed, have never been late and have never canceled on a wedding.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Once I am booked on a date, my associates will be able to talk to you about an alternative option for your entertainment.
What is your overtime rate?
I do not charge overtime, I do not offer unlimited time either. What I do offer is a real time line that will work best for you. Don't be fooled by "unlimited time" as most weddings are wrapped up in 4-5 hours.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
There is a retainer that is discussed in the meeting.

What can we say! Zach rocked the house! I really can't say good things about Zach, if you know "love languages" I would have to say this affirmation is that he truly loves what he does!! He really did help make it the most perfect night o our lives! Flawless, executed perfectly and at the brunch the day after our party everyone was still talking about how much fun they had! This was our dream wedding we invested heavily in getting the perfect team to make it just that, Zach is a blast to work with and I couldn't have found a better Emcee/DJ. If you are on the fence about going with a professional, jump over, give him a call and move some funds around if your on a tight budget because this is truly one person that can change your entire day! - Thanks Zach!!

Zach’s professionalism put my fiancé and I at ease from the start. He kept appointments and put up with changes on our end. He was able to pinpoint what was most important to us (tactful, classy but fun) and carry it out perfectly. He was sensitive to our group of people and used the on-the-spot feedback to create a very appropriate atmosphere – which was no easy feat because of my fairly conservative family. His equipment is top notch and his DJ skills very impressive. I’ve never heard such a smooth DJ in my life. Worth every penny! Many in my family talked about it for weeks. Thank you Zack for making our celebration so fun, stress free and the best memory ever.

Zach did a great job at our wedding and reception. We didn't want to necessarily do all the traditions at our reception and he had great ideas about alternatives to the bouquet toss that would get our guests on the dance floor - and they worked! He got the timing of the music for our ceremony down perfectly and played all the music on our must-have list. That made the event fun for us. He also incorporated a good mix of additional songs that people enjoyed. That made the event fun for our guests. All goals met! My only disappointment was the photo booth prints. He designed an awesome postcard for our guests to take with them. The version we actually had at the reception had the same info - just wasn't formatted as awesome as his design!

Zach was truly amazing, we felt so at ease after meeting with him at his office, we booked the day we got the quote. It was really great actually feeling like he was part of our team and not just "another vendor" he helped us prepare our family and bridal party in the weeks leading up to the wedding day by giving me little "tips" on making them help kick the party off and it was great because just as he suggested it did!!! I have gotten so many compliments on the ceremony and everything but people keep raving about the PARTY!

If you are just looking for a DJ and just want an average party don't hire Zach, his skills, expertise, experience and all around helpful planning tips will take your party WAY beyond what "just a DJ" can do. We also loved how all his companies worked together, photo booth(duet), lighting(empire)
So while we were dealing with separate companies it didn't feel like it and we didn't have to talk to different people leading upto the wedding day.

Zach was fantastic, we really enjoyed the personal consultations that he offered. When we were searching for a "DJ" we really thought that it would be somebody standing up playing music and making a few announcements, at least that is what all my friends ever had at their wedding. When we called Zach he offered to setup a meeting in his office, after that meeting we really understood how much of a difference hiring someone who would get to know us personally, spend the time to really try to make our reception different.

The day of our wedding he and his staff were on time, they setup everything early, our hotel actually commented on how professional he and his staff were to us that day.

If you are looking for just a DJ I think that he has another company he owns that offers that, but we wanted to invest in more than just a DJ, which is what we got. We did pay much more for his services than a few other places were offering but we felt it would be a good investment keeping out guests in mind and their investment in getting to our wedding, as well as the success of the evening, which it was. He was also HIGHLY recommended by MANY of our other vendors that we were using. We also ended up booking his Photo Booth company Duet Photo Booth (which was a huge hit and he also hooked us up with his lighting company Empire Lighting, he gave us a pretty sweet discount for using both companies!
