We don't just sit there and play music...We Entertain!
What makes you different than other DJ companies?The most important thing that makes us different is that we are not one of those "cheesy" DJs that most people think of when you mention a wedding DJ. Secondly, the amount of time we spend before your big day helping you create an amazing reception is much different than the DJs that usually just show up at your wedding and wait for you to tell them what to do. We dedicate countless hours to making sure your reception goes as planned by actually planning face-to-face ahead of time. Our clients always tell us that we're so easy to get a hold of compared to other DJs. They've told us that some companies didn't even call them or email them back when they were looking to hire someone. Save yourself the stress in those days leading up to your wedding by avoiding a DJ company that doesn't get back to you quickly.
What types of events do you specialize in?We specialize in wedding receptions. Other DJs specialize in all sorts of other events like birthday parties, school dances, etc. but we've chosen to concentrate on weddings by keeping up with the latest bridal trends and being extremely organized when helping plan your big day.
Can we meet with you to be sure you'd be a good fit for our wedding?Absolutely! We rarely book an event without meeting a couple in person to let them interview us and see if we are a good fit for their wedding. If you're planning your wedding from out of the Akron-Canton, Ohio area we can always chat over the phone when it's convenient for you. We're also very flexible on when we can meet since we know some brides are either working full-time or in school. A lot of our meetings take place in the evenings but we're available during the day as well.
How does your pricing work?Our pricing is very straightforward. We charge a flat-rate fee for the package you choose. Each package includes up to 6 hours of entertainment. If at the end of the 6 hours you decide your having too much fun, we won't cut off your party. You can ask us to continue to entertain for a small fee of $50 per hour. We're your DJ for the night which means you won't need to watch the clock!
When do I pay for my DJ services?We just need a small retainer fee to reserve your date and the balance doesn't need to be paid until two weeks prior to your reception. We accept cash, money orders, cashier's checks and personal checks. We also offer an interest-free payment plans to help you pay your balance each month leading up to your wedding.
What type of music do you play?We offer just about every type of music. Our collection ranges from the big band era to today's current top 40 hits! Since we specialize in weddings we will usually create a good mix of music for all ages and tastes. All of our songs are "clean radio-edits" so your guests won't hear any objectionable or explicit lyrics.
Do you allow clients to choose the music at their reception?Absolutely! We are more than happy to play any special "must-play" songs or requests. We have some clients that are really into music and like to be more involved in the playlist than others but we never require our clients to go onto our website and choose all of the music they want at their wedding. As your DJ it's our job to take on that responsibility for you and to make the planning process easy. If you simply give us a few songs you really like we can pick out other ones to fit. Think of it as your own human Pandora! During the dancing at your wedding it's our job to observe what your guests enjoy and play the music that keeps them on the dance floor.
Who will be the DJ that shows up at my reception?We think it's important for you to interview the actual DJ that will be at your wedding so when you contact us we'll see who is available and let you interview them in person to see if they would be a good fit for your wedding. The DJ who meets with you initially is also the DJ that does all the planning and coordinating with you and is the DJ who comes to perform at your reception. You'll also be able to call, text, or email your DJ directly anytime you need something...no need to funnel your questions through a receptionist or someone else that doesn't know the details of your event!
Do you offer a contract to protect your clients?Yes, in fact most companies offer contracts that protect only their company. Our contract protects you as well. It does not include any sneaky fine print or confusing legal wording...just peace of mind! It includes all of your reception information and the fees you'll expect to pay.
Do you emcee my reception and is that included in the price?Yes, We are not only your DJ but also the emcee for your reception. As your spokesperson, we keep your guests informed with any announcements that need to be made throughout the evening. There is no extra charge for this, just part of the package!
Since you attend weddings just about every weekend, can you help me plan and coordinate my reception?Yes, we have lots of ideas to make your reception a huge success! You simply tell us what type of mood you'd like to create and we can offer suggestions to help make it happen. Our reception planning and coordination is included in your package. First, we give you a detailed reception planner workbook for you and your fiance to work on together. Then, closer to the wedding, we sit down with you face-to-face and help you come up with the agenda for the entire reception. During your reception we coordinate the entire evening so you can simply relax and have a great time with your guests.
What will you wear at my reception?We usually dress in a full tuxedo but we can customize our appearance to whatever you have in mind. Since we're often the first person your guests will see when they arrive it's important for us to look professional.
When will you arrive to set up at my reception?This all depends on how much set-up time is needed. We usually arrive at least 1 - 2 hours before your reception to make sure everything is completely set up and tested by the time your first guest arrives. For larger weddings we may need additional set-up time. As always, we do not charge you extra for any amount of set-up time.
What type of equipment do you use?We use the latest in professional sound equipment. No home stereo gear or consumer grade equipment is used at your reception. Denon, Shure, Crown, EV, and JBL are just a few of the name brands we use. We also use professional wireless microphones for all announcements. All of our sound equipment sets inside custom made cases that rest on top of any standard banquet table. All wires are kept out of sight for a very clean and organized appearance. After all, you spend lots of money on making everything look elegant so why should the DJ's set-up be any different?
Do you expect a tip at the end of the evening?No, our clients pay a professional fee and we would never expect an extra amount at the end of the evening. We also would never display a "tip jar" at your reception!
Do you put up cheesy banners or advertisements for your company?No way! We don't come to your wedding to advertise our business over the microphone or by displaying any signage. Remember, this is your night so we will not post any banners or posters with our company name displayed on them. If your guests are curious who we are, they'll come up and ask.
