We are very proud of our professionalism


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. We 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. We have backup equipment available in the event of a unexpected, catastrophic failure! We plan for the unexpected.

5. Does the Disc Jockey know the proper etiquette for your type of party? Yes. We 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.

6. How much time do you allow for set-up? Set-up depends on the type of function and equipment required. Larger parties usually require more equipment and set-up time. It is not unusual to take a couple hours to set up. Smaller rigs can take as little as 30 minutes. We strive to have all equipment set-up & sound checks complete prior to the arrival of your first guest.

7. Do you provide a written contract? 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? Yes. Our dress depends on the function and the requirements of the client. We will ask you what is appropriate for your function! If you are having a themed event, make sure your entertainer is informed.

9. Do your DJs partake in either drugs or alcohol at events? No. We are not invited to your event. We are hired to be professionals. A clear mind enables us to perform at our best.

10. Do you play clean versions of songs? Yes. It is critical that our music does not offend anyone. Even some songs that are deemed radio edited may still not be appropriate for all groups. Professional discretion is important in choosing the appropriate music for the environment.

Other Items to Note: Disc Jockeys rates vary based on talent, experience, emcee ability, service, coordination, equipment needed, music knowledge, mixing ability and personality. Wedding package 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.
