Why do I need to sign-up to become a members only for your DJ services?


| A |


Good question, unfortunately we are unable to offer DJ services to every customer budgets, and certain types of events, etc.  


| Q | 

What will you wear to my event?


| A |

We always come dressed appropriately for your party. In the case of a corporate event or school prom our attire is always a suit & tie unless otherwise discussed.

| Q |

Is equipment set-up & take-down included?


| A |

Whenever we quote on an event we always include the set-up and takedown times. So if for example in the quote we indicate the times as 6:00pm to 1:00am we will arrive 1 to 1.5 hours prior to 6:00pm to start our set-up/do a sound check and will finish playing music at 1:00am and start to take-down our equipment at that time.

Tess


| Q |

How many songs will you bring to my event?


| A |

At a typical party we will have over 50,000 songs on hand. If you are worried that we might not have the song your looking for make sure you add it to the Music Request Sheet that we provide to you upon booking.

Some common Q & A from customers and FIVE STAR EVENT DJ below.

| Q | 

What kind of music will you play at my event?


| A |

The first thing we look at prior to a party is the music requests or instruction from the person who booked us. Sometimes the client will want a specific style or set of music played or not played. If the person booking us has not given us any specific instructions on these things then we will read the crowd, let them know that requests are welcomed and play to their needs.

Benny


| Q |

Will you play guest requests?


| A |

Absolutely, as long as:

1-They are appropriate for the event.

2-The person who hired us has asked that the song or style of music not be played.

Tess


| Q |

Will you or your DJ's drink alcohol at my party?


| A |

We have a strict code on conduct which includes a policy on no drinking so you wont have to worry about having to carry one of our DJs out at the end of the night

What happens if you don't have a song that we're looking for?

We have close to 100,000 songs in our main music library and have access to realtime download from our wifi, however it’s not possible to have access to every songs ever recorded. If we don’t have or can’t find the song you are looking for we would be happy to play a copy that you provide.

| Q | 

How much experience do your DJs have?


| A |

  There isn’t a DJ here that does events that hasn’t played for at least 100 parties. Our school DJs are not sent out on their own until they have been properly trained and have worked along one of our senior school DJs for at least 30 parties.

Benny


| Q |

Do your DJs take breaks?


| A |

Unless it’s a bathroom emergency we’ll be there when you need us. In the case of a bathroom break during dancing we come prepared with extended versions of songs to give us plenty of time to get to the bathroom and back.

Tess

Will you play extra time at the end of the party if required?



| A |

Yes, but it’s always a good idea to check with the hall first, some venues will charge you an extra hour for the room rental if you go even 5 minutes past the booked end time. Additional charges may apply for our extra time as well.

HOW TO CHOOSE A PROFESSIONAL EVENT DISC JOCKEY


Choosing  a truly professional event DJ to entertain your guests is perhaps the most important aspect of ensuring a great event. Even when everything else is perfect, if the music isn't fantastic, the whole event can be ruined.


How can you be sure to make the right decision? You can hire a DJ you have already seen and liked, or you can ask someone whose opinion you trust for a referral. If neither of these choices is an option, there is always the internet to which to turn. Start with "DJ's near me" search first.


When calling a mobile DJ service to obtain info and rates, do not judge value on price alone. If one DJ service charges more than another, they may well be worth the price. Anyone who has ever had an event ruined due to an unprofessional or ill-prepared DJ can attest to this fact. You want to find a DJ with an established reputation who has extensive music knowledge and experience.


Pay close attention to the DJ's professionalism over the phone. Here are my top 6 questions to ask a DJ.


  1. What music will the you bring to my event?
  2. What type of DJ equipment do you provide and don't provide?
  3. How will you the DJ be dressed?
  4. Do you guarantee your DJ services?
  5. Can you provide references?
  6. How much do your DJ services cost?

As you know, there are many professional DJ's to choose from in the marketplace. I hope you have a great event and day.
