10 Questions with Tony Fynan

1. Introduction: What's your story?

For the past 40 years, I've been entertaining guests as a DJ. At the age of 14, I began djaying teen dances at Davis-Monthan AFB's youth center in Tucson, Arizona. The staff noticed and heard something unique about me: I could read a crowd! I was not just playing for myself; I was also playing for my peers. Every event I've played at has taught me something new. Now, with much better gear available, I'll rock any occasion that people want to celebrate!

2. What's your experience as a wedding DJ? How many weddings have you done?

I'm sure it's close to four digits, but the level of service provided at each and every individual celebration is what matters to me.

3. How far in advance do couples need to book your services?

A majority of couples book their wedding DJ services 8–12 months in advance, however we'll accommodate last-minute weddings if the date is available.

4. What's your rate? What does that include?

While Arizona Mobile DJ provides rates that are appropriate for the majority of the weddings we DJ, we also have the flexibility to adapt to individuals that have specific needs.

Our wedding DJ service is $225 per hour with a 3 hour minimum

Our wedding DJ packages begin at $850 and range up to $1350. This includes services for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, as well as all high-quality equipment, pre-wedding consultations, unique music selections, timeline preparation, and more.

5. Are you available to travel if needed?

The majority of our weddings and events take place in Arizona, but if someone wanted to book us for anything further away, we'd offer a fair and reasonable price to include the additional travel costs.

6. How would you describe your style?

I go with the flow. If I do something and everyone responds, I lead the party in that direction for a little while. I consistently follow the client's instructions and provide an outstanding experience for everyone there. I enjoy what I do, and it's contagious! I don't get lost in the mix; I'm approachable and personable.

7. What's your backup plan if there's an equipment malfunction? Do you bring backup equipment?

I have backup devices, laptops, and media players on standby in case something goes wrong.
In addition, I have a network of dependable and trustworthy DJs I can call on in the event of an emergency.

8. What's your sick day policy?

I have resources to call if I'm not feeling well, and in 40 years, I have never missed an event.
I would communicate all the information about that specific event to the backup DJ, who would know exactly how to proceed.

9. How do you motivate a shy crowd to dance? What do you do to motivate the crowd if nobody is dancing?

I understand that not everyone likes to dance; some people want to chat and catch up, which is OK.
I never compel people to dance; they dance because something inspires them to get up and party.
Everyone is different, and so are their musical tastes; I strive to play something for everyone.

10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?

The retainer fee (aka deposit) is non-refundable, and the total balance is due 14 days before the wedding day. We have a no-cancel policy once we are two weeks away since we will not be able to rebook that date.
