* Questions For Your DJ*

 

1. Are You Insured?
Absolutely! Insurance is a part of any legitimate business. Liability andcasualty policies protect you, your guests, and the DJ company.

2. Are we guaranteed that you will be our DJ?
Absolutely! Unlike the companies with multiple DJ’s, I will Personallytalk with you, meet with you, consult and plan with you, advise you andhelp you choose your wedding music. I will be your DJ/MC at yourwedding, with an assistant, if necessary or desired.

3. What do you charge to secure the date?
Approximately one third of the total price.

4. Are you a full time DJ or is this something you do on the side?
Definitely Full Time! I have been a full time DJ and Entertainer for over 20
years. I personally, have DJ/Entertained over 6,000 Weddings, Private and
Corporate Events.

5. Do you charge extra for travel?
In most cases I will travel anywhere in Ventura and LA county at no
extra charge. Reasonable rates for travel outside these areas vary,
depending upon destination.

6. Will you emcee the event?
Of Course! This is the responsibility of a professional DJ.

7. Do you provide a demo tape or video?
No, I customize your wedding and reception, with you, to uniquely fit your taste and personality. If I showed you a video that wasn’t your style
or taste in music, it wouldn’t be in my best interest. Think about it, if a
DJ did something wrong at a past wedding... it certainly won’t be on the
tape you receive from him. Instead I provide references.

8. Do you take requests?
Certainly! As long as the request is appropriate for the event. If a song
seems inappropriate for an event, a good DJ will explain the reason and ask for an alternative selection. (this is at the Bride & Grooms discretion)

9. What type of equipment do you use?
I use quality professional D.J. gear. Such as: Denon, Numark, Mackie,
Shure, Fender, Yamaha, American DJ, etc. etc. My equipment is serviced
and maintained to ensure a smooth performance and nice appearance.
Also, I always have a back-up system with me.

10. What type of music do you play?
I have a very extensive library, which continues to grow. Included in my
library are: Pop, Rock, Country, Oldies, Standards, Hip Hop, Soul, Swing
Funk, Latin, Salsa, Merengue, Banda, Cumbia, Motown, Disco, Big Band
Ballroom Dance, Reggae, Jazz, Classical, R & B and Top 40. (you name it!)

11. May we call your references?
Yes, at our consultation I will be happy to provide you with names and
phone numbers.

12. Do you belong to any professional associations or trade groups?
Yes, I am a member of the American Disc Jockey Association and the National Association for Catering and Events.

13. Do you take breaks?
Not on your time. Unlike live musicians who need several rest breaks my services are non-stop throughout your event.

* Pricing Information *

 

WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT DJ PRICING?
In post event surveys, clients stated that the contribution provided by the DJ made towards the overall success of their special event was 85%! Whether  it was a Wedding Reception, Corporate Event, or Private Party, its SUCCESS or FAILURE depends upon the quality of services you receive from your Disc Jockey. They’re entertainment driven events.

Even though food, photos, and decor are important, these items are pale in comparison to the overall success of your event! The D.J. Entertainer is the difference between a Great Event or, just another social gathering.

 

HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU PAY FOR YOUR DISC JOCKEY?
You will find that professional disc jockeys will range from $350.00 to over $5,000.00 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.

 

WHY IS THERE SUCH A WIDE RANGE IN DJ PRICING?
1. They don’t offer all the services a true professional Disc Jockey will. This means, using home or inferior stereo equipment, a limited music library,  no back-up equipment, little or no advance planning... which leads to major problems at your Wedding Reception, Corporate event, or Private Party.

2. Most “D.J.’s” have absolutely no training. They figure if they can play a CD...then they can run any parties or special events. Which could be one of the most important days of your life, maybe YOUR WEDDING!

3. The D.J. industry is full of people looking to make an extra buck.  Their focus is on their real job during the week. If they mess up your event,  neglect to show up, or give a very average performance, they have nothing  to lose. They still will get their real paycheck every two weeks. NOTE: Discount for Friday and Sunday Bookings!!!
