Q: What areas do you service?

Q: How do I secure a DJ or musician for my date?
A: Once we determine which DJ or musician you would like to work with, we will secure the date with a contract and 50% deposit.
Q: What type of music do you play?
A: Our DJs are extremely versatile, and can play a number of genres including big band, Motown, swing, classic rock, new wave, 80s/90s pop, hip hop, top 40, and Latin to name a few. We typically avoid line dances (Macarena, Chicken Dance, etc.), and try to infuse a sense of style to any set. Our live musicians are also extremely versatile, and typically play jazz, folk, classical, bossa nova, and modern contemporary music.
Q: Do your DJs provide emcee services?
A: We are more than happy to make announcements for your event in a clear and confident speaking voice, as well as to help keep your timeline on-track throughout the course of the event. We prefer not to motivate guests by shouting into the microphone with a theatrical "radio voice," (think: "Let's get ready to rumble!") but rather to put music first, and maintain a cool and confident approach.
Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
A: We accept credit card via PayPal, and personal check.
Q: Do you have vendor insurance?
A: Yes. We can provide any additional insured documentation to your venue upon request.
Q: Do you provide audio equipment?
A: Yes, we are all-inclusive! Our basic package includes up to two sound system setups, plus a high-end wireless handheld microphone, plus backup equipment in case of any technical difficulties. All we need to operate is access to a standard (110v household) power outlet.
Q: Are you able to provide music for my wedding ceremony?
A: We are happy to provide music and/or a microphone for any on-site ceremonies.
Q: How do we coordinate our music for the evening?
A: Your selected DJ or musician will work with you one-on-one to brainstorm the music for your evening. After this consultation, you will be asked to complete a "Planning Worksheet," where you have the option to list any special announcements, key songs, or other important details.
Q: Do you take requests? How do you handle them?
A: Our DJs all have extensive personal music libraries, and are happy to download an important request on the spot if needed (and if WiFi is available). We are happy to play any request that we feel falls within the confines of your tastes, and as long as we predict it will keep the floor packed! While we suggest alerting our live musicians of any special requests prior to an event, all of our musicians are happy to accommodate spontaneous requests whenever possible.
Q: What do you require from our venue?
A: We require a standard 6-foot banquet table and access to a standard electrical outlet. While a meal is appreciated, it is certainly not required.
Q. What do you wear to a booked event?
A: Our DJs & musicians always show up dressed to match the elegance of your event. We typically opt for understated dark-colored suits or dresses, with neutral accessories. We also go to great lengths to keep our work area tidy, so as never to detract from all of the hard work you've spent making your space look amazing.
Q: Do we need to tip the DJ?
A: Gratuities are appreciated but not required. A service gratuity of 15% is the industry standard.
