You ask the tough questions, I'll give the straightforward answers you deserve!
Q: Do you have backup equipment?
A: Yes, we bring backup DJ equipment to each event including an extra speaker, computer, and cables incase of emergency. We have never had to use it, but we know are clients are counting on us for their big day and want to be prepared in the off-chance it is needed. We of course can't bring an extra photo booth to each event, but do bring extra cables as a precaution.
Q: What kind of equipment do you use?
A: I use high quality, top of the line professional equipment including a digital music library, Apple computers, digital mixer for a gapless mix all night, Mackie speakers, and an awesome light show! For very large events and large venues, ask us about our upgraded sound system. I have invested alot of time and money in putting together the best sound and light show to help in creating a fun atmosphere at your wedding. See our equipment page for more information.
Q: Is your business insured?
A: Yes, we carry professional liability insurance. Many venues require that companies have this type of insurance in order to perform at their location and any wedding vendor that is serious about their trade should definitely carry this type of insurance.
Q: What do you wear to a wedding?
A: I typically wear a nice suit, shirt and tie (no cheesy DJ in a tux, here!). Megan typically wears a dress. We are happy to get your input on what to wear for your special day!
Q: Will you travel to a location outside of the twin cities?
A: Yes, definitely! We are happy to travel to weddings anywhere in the midwest. A travel fee will apply and we'll be happy to discuss this with you and make arrangements.
Q: What is your style?
A: Being a DJ is more than just playing music. As a professional DJ, it my job to help be a host for the evening. I am happy to make any announcements and keep the events of the night moving smoothly. I am happy to announce the grand march/bridal party introduction, cake cutting, toasts, first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, anniversary dance, boquet toss, garter toss, requests and any other announcements you need made. I am easy going, enthusiastic and approachable so that guests feel welcome to come to me with requests. With that being said, I am not obnoxious and you will not see me wearing a hawian shirt (hey, unless that's your theme), making cheesy jokes, singing, or being over-bearing as we have all seen many DJs do. I get that the guests are there to have a fun time and listen to good music -- not to listen to me talk all night!
Q: Can we help choose the music for the event?
A: Yes, of course! I will work with you to create a custom playlist just for your event. Some couples have alot of input on what songs they would like played and others want to leave most of the song selections up to me -- and either one is great with me! I have playlists that I have compiled over the years based on what has been popular at weddings that I am happy to share to help give you some ideas of what type of music you might like played.
Q: Are you open to weddings of different cultures, nationalities or gay/lesbian?
A: Yes! We have done events for families of all types of backgrounds and are very open-minded people. We'd love to be a part of your event! If your event requires a large amount of music that we wouldn't typically have in our librbary, we are happy to work with you in playing some of your special songs as well.
Q: Will you meet with us to discuss our event or for an initial consultation?
A: Yes, I'd love the opportunity to meet with you in person. I want you to feel 100% confident in booking us for your special day. For the sake of time, it often makes works well to connect over FaceTime, Skype or the phone. We will also work together closer to the wedding to discuss details, create a timeline, and put together a playlist. I encourage you to check out our reviews page and see what our past clients have to say about working with us!
Q: What is needed to book your date?
A: We just require a short simple service agreement along with a deposit to reserve a date. We do receive many requests for high-demand dates and can only accomodate one DJ/photo booth event per date, so if you're sure you want us for your event, book right away!
