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

I have personally done hundreds of weddings, and the rest of our talented wedding DJ staff adds hundreds more. We have performed every type of wedding imaginable including many different cultures. We have done small intimate weddings to large celebrity weddings.

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

The obvious answer is sooner is always better than later. However we have booked some on shorter notice.

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

Pricing will vary with a few factors like lighting, atmospherics, amount of hours, and peak days. We usually will do custom price quotes for each clients once we learn their vision, but our prices rage from $895 to $2500 with our most popular package being right around $1500.

5. Are you available to travel if needed?

Yes of course! We love to travel!

6. How would you describe your style?

This is always a fun question. Our "Style" is very fluid. At the end of the day, we mold our "Style" to our clients vision. After all this is their wedding/big day and we don't believe in cookie cutter weddings so we adapt to meet our clients needs.

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

Technology is either your best friend or your worst enemy! That being the case, we are gear junkies, we only use the best in our industry with reliable brands such as JBL (VRX), Shure, Pioneer, EV (Evolve), Chauvet Pro, etc. This reduces the risk of malfunctions. But yes, if something does happen we have back up equipment and staff on call.

8. What's your sick day policy?

We always have the "Show Must Go On" mentality! In light of the recent state of the world pandemic however we do take extra precautions to make sure our staff is healthy when they go to events. This is also why we have back up staff to fill in as needed.

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

First and foremost music selection is key! If you have a good playlist then dancing comes organically. Next is be a good emcee without being "Cheesy" you can motivate a crowd by being fluid and changing the pace if your guests are shy at first.

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

This has become an interesting topic and we do have a few different policies in this capacity. We have a general cancellation policy and one as it relates to a pandemic/Force Majuere. In a general capacity, we have a non-refundable reservation fee. Then, if the client cancels prior to the 90 day mark, no other obligation is required and no fees owed. If it is within the 90 days the balance is owed in full as we typically cannot book another event in that place in that short notice. We do have a postponement policy as well that will allow our services to be moved to a future date.
