Faq

How much do you charge?
The fee for an event really depends on the type of event you are having. It's always best for us to discuss your needs, and what your requirements are. Once I know that, I can give you an exact quote.

Will you meet with us?
Absolutely. The best way to understand your needs is to talk to you and find out how we can work together and make your event a success. Our initial consultation is a great time to meet each other. You can then see if I am the right DJ for you.

Do you take requests?
Requests are always welcome. I have learned over the years that some families have special songs they love to dance to. I have a special request sheet I send out with the event package so you can select special songs in advance. I also include a special section for dedications.

Do you have a contract?
Yes a legal contract protects both parties involved. With a contract everything is spelled out so there are no hidden surprises. Never do business with a DJ that wants your business but will not offer or discuss a written contract with you.

Will you be our DJ?
Yes I am the owner and I do the shows.

What happens if you can’t perform?
In the unlikely event that I could not make an event I do work with a local association of professional disc jockeys where we back each other up. In over 25 years of professional entertaining, I have been at every event and have never had to use a backup to date.

How long have you been in business?
Since 1979 or just about the time when the YMCA came out .

What do you wear?
For weddings I do wear a tuxedo unless other wise requested. For most casual events I may wear a shirt and tie and for less formal events a pair of slacks and polo shirt. If the party is thematic, I can dress appropriately; given enough time to be sure I can find the right apparel.

Is there a charge for setup?
Never. This is a tactic that DJ's use to boost their price. I do require entrance to the location at least 1.5 hours prior to the start time to ensure a prompt start to your event.

What kind of equipment do you have?
I have all professional audio and lighting equipment including Mackie speakers, a Rane mixer, American DJ and Chauvet lighting. I bring with me several key backup components just in case of a malfunction. My entire system is new within the last year and is some of the most reliable equipment on the market today.

How much of a retainer fee is required?
I require a $100.00 -$200.00retainer fee for my services with the balance due the day/evening of the event.

Should we include you for meals?
Although not necessary it is appreciated. Most events I perform at are well over 6 hours plus drive time and setup time. In most cases I will spend 10 hours per event and don’t always get a chance for a bite to eat.
