Below is our answers to the most frequently asked questions from brides and grooms about hiring a dj.



How soon do you hire a DJ before your event?

It varies, most of our wedding clients book us about 6-12 months prior to their wedding.  However we have many clients book a few weeks or few months before their event. 

 Do you play requests?

We work with our clients to select the music that their guest will enjoy.  We develop a customized song sheet for each event.  The customized song sheet consists of popular songs from 6 different music categories which is selected with input and advice from the bride and groom.  In addition to the customized song sheet we bring our entire music library of over 20,000 songs for your guest to select from.  We find that most successful events are when the guests have an opportunity to make requests.

 Can I bring my own music?

We are happy to play a bride or groom’s music if they provide it on CD or an MP3 player (e.g. IPOD).  However we often find that we have the requested song in our music library.

 How many songs are played at a typical event?

This varies depending on the other planned activities.  There are usually about 14-18 songs played per hour.

Will the DJ act as an emcee?

For most weddings we act as an emcee.  On occasion the bride and groom request a friend or family member to act as emcee.

How will the DJ’s be dressed?

Our DJ(s) dress appropriate for each event.  For most weddings the DJ will be in a black tuxedo vest and black tie.

How many DJ’s will be at my event?

For most events we have 2 DJ’s.  We do this for several reasons.  In case one DJ is ill or there is an emergency, we want to make sure you event will continue as planned.  Also we have found that we are able to serve our clients with 2 DJ’s.
