2. Are you insured? Can you supply me with proof of liability?

Many responsible business owners carry liability insurance to protect their businesses and the consumer. Many locations are beginning to require proof of liability. Ask for proof of liability insurance. Disc Jockey’s receive a Certificate of Liability which can be used as proof.

We carry a 1 Million Dollar Liability policy to protect our business, the venue and you the consumer.

3. Will you be willing to play requests and discuss music ahead of time?

A versatile Disc Jockey is willing to listen to your suggestions, give you feedback and play from your desired song list. A professional Disc Jockey will also accept the fact you may not want certain songs played. A professional Disc Jockey cannot know everything about your musical preferences and entertainment needs without communication.

Absolutely! As a client you have access to our online request system to make a Must Play List, A Do Not Play List and Your Special Event Dance requests.  We also offer lists of the Most Requested Songs based on millions of requests made through the DJ Intelligence® music request system.

4. Do you use Professional Equipment?

Ask whether your prospective Disc Jockey works with professional audio equipment. If you are not sure, ask for their equipment list and check with a local music dealer or the A.D.J.A. to verify they are using professional-grade sound gear. Remember that professional gear does not guarantee an entertainer’s talent or service level, but is simply a tool for building an exceptional event.

These are the tools of our trade and we use only the best speakers, mixers, wireless microphones, intelligent lighting, tvs, projectors and screens.

5. Do you provide backup equipment at my event?

Although equipment failure is rare, do you really want your special occasion ruined because your Disc Jockey did not come prepared? It is also important to know if your Disc Jockey has a back-up plan in case of illness or an accident. Members of the A.D.J.A. have many resources available to them in case of an emergency. You may also reach our Hotline number to get a Disc Jockey when you have an emergency. The toll-free number is 888-723-5776.Booking a reliable Disc Jockey is a very important decision for the success of your party. Selecting a Disc Jockey who is an active member of the American Disc Jockey Association will provide you with the confidence that you have selected a trained professional. A.D.J.A. members are more likely to be involved with other Disc Jockey’s who can help them out with an unexpected situation.

We carry back up equipment and have designed a triple redudent system in our set up should problems arise.

6. Does the Disc Jockey know the proper etiquette for your type of party?

A professional Disc Jockey will assist you with the planning of your special day. Most professional entertainers will coordinate, emcee and provide the music that you desire. Ask if they have experience with your type of event.

We are a highly skilled Master Of Ceremonies, have 15 years of experience and have a massive music and music video library. Our DJ intelligence system has all the tools for planning your event.

7. How much time do you allow for set-up?

Punctuality is a necessity. Most Disc Jockey’s arrive at least one hour prior to the start time you’ve given them. Your entertainer should ideally be setup and in-place before your first guest walks through the door.

We will arrive several hours prior to your event to ensure everything is perfect before your guests arrive.

8. Do you provide a written contract?

It is extremely important to have your booking confirmed in writing. Ask for a written agreement, especially if you are paying an initial retainer. The standard initial payment for entertainment services is 50%. If you are expecting a specific entertainer, make sure you get it in writing as well.

We use a specific contract with all the details of your event and require a 50% reservation fee at the time of booking.

9. Will you be suitably dressed for our occasion?

Specify the type of apparel that your Disc Jockey is expected to wear for your occasion. Formal attire or coat & tie are the most popular forms of attire. If you are having a “themed” event, make sure your entertainer is informed.

Our normal attire is a suit and tie unless instructed otherwise.

10. Do you belong to a professional organization or trade group?

Although belonging to an organization or trade group does not guarantee the talent or professionalism of a disc jockey, it may indicate the companies willingness to network, learn and grow. Disc jockeys can learn through local chapter meetings, national DJ conventions and seminars geared toward the entertainment professional.

I am a member of the American Disc Jockey Association and the National Association of Mobile Entertainers. I attend national DJ conventions, workshops and seminars every year to continually advance my knowledge and skills.
