Describe your DJ style:
I have a very diverse taste in music; from the 50's to the top 40's. My favorite type of music is changing constantly just as the music industry is. My ideal event is seeing everyone on the dance floor dancing til they drop.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Absolutely Not! We offer music playlist building tools viia our website (password secured), and the more music selection you provide us with--the better the night will flow.
What is your usual attire?
Formal; but it does vary based on the dress code for the event
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I work very hard to fulfill any and all requests Productionss; especially from the Bride & Groom. If for some reason I am unable to find a specific song, the bride & groom will be notified in plenty of time.
How many other DJs do you work with?
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
My default contracted time is for 3 hours for the set price of $495.00
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! I highly encourage the bride & groom to have a onsultation/pre-wedding planning meeting to go over all the specific details of the wedding day. My job is to lessen your stress and to make sure we have a strong communication.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
I have performed at the "Cannes International Du Film Festival" (de fumer)
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes! Once we are contracted we provide every client with a login and password to our secured planning site. On the music section you are able to search for songs for your night. Each song has 3 options, "Must Play", "Play If Time", and "Do Not Play". Every event has a different grouping of ages and music preferences and we strive very hard to never offend anyone.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes! Professional sound equipment, and lots of special effects available.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
LOTS! Up Lighting, lasers, snow machines, bubble machines, fog machines, etc
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?
This depends on how much Lighting & Special Effects that are being requested by the Bride & Groom. If no lighting is wanted or only a few pieces, than about 2 hours to set up. If you want a lot of effects than it could be a few additional hours to properly set up and test everything. A table is not necessary; I bring my own stand
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, but we bring a copy of the playlist for the event, a music requests Productions sheet (if approved by the bride/groom), and business cards
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Only if requested to by the Bride & Groom. I also have wireless microphones for use for toasts, announcements, etc.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
I have a great ability to read the crowd; and if the music is not working -- than as long as it is within the taste of approved music; I would try some new things.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
A meal is a nice gesture from the Bride & Groom; however it is not necessary. I know how much dinners per person can cost
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
There will never be any time without music & a DJ present. If for some reason we need to step away for a moment to check things (connections, etc) there will be a pre-made selection to play

Yes; I have a network of colleagues to ensure your big day does not get interrupted.
