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
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
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
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
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.
