FAQYour Questions Answered
Over the years, we’ve gotten questions from people just like you with Disc Jockey questions about their event. Below, you’ll find the most popular ones.
If you have a question that’s not answered here, please feel free to contact us we’ll quickly send you a response.
How many months in advance do I need to reserve your services for my wedding date?
For Spring & Fall Weddings we book up about 9 months to a year. For Summer and Winter Weddings about 6-9 months in advance.
How do your DJ's Dress?
Professional and sleek. Our male DJs wear a polo while setting up all the equipment and a suit and tie when the event begins. All females will wear a professional black or navy blue dress.
Do you take breaks?
No. Our DJ staff will perform continuously throughout the night. From our scheduled start time until your party is over, the music will be playing (unless of course you request a break for some other reason).
Can we choose the music to be played at our event?
Yes. We base our services directly on the clients interests. We have learned that keeping your crowd alive depends on a lot of things including the type of music, type of mix, DJ personality, atmosphere, etc.
From our song search page you are able to create a play list online for your event and immediately send it to our staff. Taking the time to submit lists online will greatly increase your chances of a successful event and allow your DJ to better understand your style of music and fill in the gaps with similar artists and sounds.
Can we have a "do not play" list?
Yes. This can be just as important to you and your event as a play list. You may also create a do not play list from our song search page and send it to us in the same way you send your other play lists.
What if we want a song that you don't have?
Our music collection spans thousands of songs from several decades. Often a client will want a song that is somewhat obscure and we may not have it. If this is the case there are two options: you may either supply us with the CD before the event so that we may check it for scratches, or (if you do not own a legal copy) we will find the song before your event. Just give us a notice in advance if we need to find you a special song. If you give us a CD we will return it to you at the end of the night.
How loud do you play the music?
One of the greatest concerns of bands and DJ’s is that the music is too loud. This will not be the case with our services. During your cocktail and dinner hours we will play soft and relaxing background music. The sound will be as evenly dispersed throughout the hall as possible.
We will make sure that your guests can hear both themselves talking and the background music. When it comes time for dance music we will adjust the volume accordingly, and if need be, re-position the speakers. Our staff will adjust the equalization of the music to get the right sound for the specific room. We will focus the music in the dance floor area.
This means that while the volume is loud enough to dance to on the floor, the rest of the room will be able to continue to hear themselves socialize.
Do you have backup equipment?
Yes. Our DJ’s will have a small amount of equipment on-hand to make sure the music keeps going. Our equipment and staff are very dependable. If something does fail, it will be easily fixed or switched without you and your guests ever noticing. If something major happens (which it never has, but on the slight chance it does) an off duty employee will be called upon to give reinforcement and resolve the issue quickly.
How interactive are your DJ's?
This is another great concern of all clients. The answer is simple: Our DJ’s are as interactive as you want them to be. They can be background figures that keep the attention only on the bridal party, completely outgoing, or any level that you prefer. We are professional entertainers and can handle your requests without a problem. However, you will never hear your DJ yelling or singing into the microphone.
We still maintain a degree of professionalism no matter how outgoing you want us to be. We will use our skills professionally to direct but never steal the spotlight.
How experienced are your entertainers?
All of our entertainers are hand selected and trained. We have many levels of staff available. All of our DJ’s have been trained formally. They have also served as assistants and received on the job training. Our apprentice DJ’s are also skilled and experienced. Apprentice DJ’s are available at competitive rates. Our senior DJ’s are the most talented Disc Jockeys in New Mexico.
If you want nothing but the best, then our senior DJ’s are here to cater to you. We take pride in providing quality service to all of our customers.
Will my DJ be drinking at my event?
NO! Besides it being against state law, our company does not allow any of our entertainers to consume alcohol before or during any event. We are very strict on this policy. We are professionals and are expected to act accordingly.
Are you and your equipment insured?
Most quality banquet facilities require entertainment companies to be fully insured. We are covered by a 1 million dollar aggregate liability insurance policy. You and your guests are protected by our service. This gives you the security of knowing that you, your friends, your family and the facility are taken care of by a professional company that cares enough to be prepared.
How early do you typically arrive before an event? Do you charge for the set up time?
We usually arrive 1-2 hours prior to start time to set up our equipment. We do not charge for set up, only actual performance time.
Does the DJ expect tipping/gratuity?
While it is common to tip the entertainment industry, it is not mandatory. Our staff is well paid from your fees. However, if your DJ surpasses your expectations and you wish to tip, a 5-10% tip would be considered extremely generous and taken as a great compliment.
What Are your Payment Terms?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Personal check or Cash. We can also set up payment plans via PayPal where each client may pay as they go in various increments that best suit their budget. We will require payment in full 14 days before the event.
