What types of events are your specialty ? Weddings are our passion and make up over 95% of the business.
Is there an advantage of working with a DJ who specializes in weddings ? A wedding reception is a very special type of event. It is not a night club or just another party. It is one of the most important, most memorable days of your life. An experienced wedding DJ does a lot more than play some music and make a few announcements. It requires advance planning, attention to details, and behind-the-scenes co-ordination to make things go right all day long.
How many years of experience do you have ? We have over fifteen years experience in the Wedding and Entertainment business.
How involved can we be in selecting music for our event ? You choose your own level of involvement. Some couples are extremely involved while others take the approach that is the job of the DJ to know what to play. Most are somewhere in the middle.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested ? Generally 20-30 songs are more than adequate for the “Must Play List”
Can you play music to entertain all our guests?I pride myself on my ability to "read an audience" and will select a mix of music that will touch upon everyone there. I have music with me for every generation. The entertainment at each wedding is different. You want music that your friends will enjoy and dance to, but you don’t want your older relatives to feel excluded. A wedding specialist like me knows how to mix the music so that everyone from your college roommate to your grandmother has a great time; all ages 8 to 80.
What if something happens to you and you can’t make it to the wedding ? In the event of something major happening my fifteen plus years in the industry have put me in contact with numerous quality DJ’s who would be able to assist me in finding a replacement.
How far in advance do we need to book ? Sooner is better. Most people book their DJ from 6 - 12 months or more in advance. However, on many occasions we book dates just a few of weeks ahead of time, and we also book over a year in advance.
How long will you hold our date for us ? Dates can only be held on receipt of our booking fee.
How much of a deposit is required to secure our date ? The booking fee amount depends on you DJ package. The booking fee ranges from €100 - €200.
Does it really matter which DJ I hire ? If you care about whether your reception is a success or not it matters a lot. Surveys show that after the wedding, 4 out of 5 guests report that the thing they remember most is the entertainment, and 4 out of 5 brides report that they wished they had made the entertainment a higher priority in their planning and budgeting. Anybody can call himself or herself a DJ. Only a select few have the musical know-how, the high-quality equipment, the extensive experience, and the professional attitude to do the job right. There are DJs that are fine at a school dance, night club, or casual party but who are not appropriate for a wedding. There are DJs who only carry the latest hits but are easily stumped if older tunes are requested. There are other DJs who have the classics but who do not keep up with the new music. There are DJs who have cheap equipment and no backup which means inferior sound. There are DJs who wing it at your wedding and do not work with a detailed, written checklist. It is widely quoted that when asked 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment.
