1. Are you insured? Can you supply me with proof of liability?
Yes. We carry commercial general liability with $2 million aggregate coverage. Many venues are beginning to require proof of coverage, ask to see a Certificate of Liability insurance for your peace of mind!
2. Will you be willing to play requests and discuss music ahead of time?
Yes. You have the option of creating your music preference list on our interactive website under "Music Selection." We also provide "state-of-the-art" database searches at your function, allowing your guests to make "on the spot" requests. We respect the fact that you may not want to hear certain types (genres) of music played, we depend on you to communicate that information to us. Communication is the key, your input is important to the success of the event!
3. Do you use Professional Equipment?
Yes. Our DJ's use professional-grade electronic equipment, you will not see a home stereo system at one of our events!
4. Do you provide backup equipment at my event?
Yes. The success of your event is very important to us. Our DJ's have backup equipment available in the event of a unexpected, catastrophic failure! We plan for the unexpected, which includes illness or accidents. Our affiliation with local professional associations provides us with dozens of professionals within our network.
Note: Booking a reliable Disc Jockey is a very important decision for the success of your party. Selecting a Disc Jockey who is an active member of the National Association Of Mobile Entertainers will provide you with the confidence that you have selected a trained professional. N.A.M.E. members are more likely to be involved with other Disc Jockey's who can help them out with an unexpected situation.
5. Does the Disc Jockey know the proper etiquette for your type of party?
Yes. Our DJ's have the experience necessary to make your function a success! If you have any questions or concerns, one of our professionals would be happy to talk with you.

Set-up depends on the type of function and equipment required. Larger parties usually require more equipment and set-up time. We strive to have all equipment set-up & sound checks complete prior to the arrival of your first guest.

Yes. You can complete a contract and make your initial deposit on our interactive, secure website under "Contract Us!" The Retainer to guarantee your function is $200.
8. Will you be suitably dressed for our occasion?

Other Items to Note:
Disc Jockey rates vary based on talent, experience, emcee ability, service, coordination, equipment needed, music knowledge, mixing ability and personality.
Rates for the DJ industry vary greatly, ranging from $350.00 to $3,500.00 with an average of $1,200.00 for a 4 hour booking. The best price is not always the best deal, especially if you are planning a wedding. As a matter of fact, surveys conclude that nearly 100% of brides would have spent more money on their entertainment and made it their #1 priority in hindsight.
A full-service disc jockey company will normally invest 12 to 30 hours to your special event but it may appear that you are only paying for "4 hours". Consultations, music purchasing & editing, preparation, set-up and tear-down, education and other business related endeavors add up to the overall success of your special occasion.
