Where can I read reviews about your company?
Great question! Right here on our “theKnot” profile.
How do we request songs?
We do all of the song planning via Google Docs. We’ll send these your way the moment you book our services. You’ll tell us your dance requests and you can indicate which of them are “Must Plays.” Additionally, you can choose songs for your “Do Not Play” list, and you can be sure that we will not play them during your reception. It truly is your night and your party!
It is important to know though in regards to requests that we do read the crowd and if certain requested genres and styles just are not working, we may do whatever we need to do as far as song selection goes to ensure that the dance floor is packed. The solution to this is to make a list of all the songs you and your fiancé would love to have at your reception, and then include songs you think your guests would love to dance to as well.
What sets your DJing apart from other DJ companies? Why should we choose you?
First, you’ll never hear silence in between the songs we play. Our song-mixing skills are unparalleled. You’ll feel like you’re hearing one long dance song, as each song seamlessly blends into the next.
Secondly, we understand you. We know most people are horrified by stereotypical Wedding DJs. We are too. However, we break that mold. We are young and we speak your cultural language. This affects our song selection as well — The Chicken Dance just isn’t our thing.
Do you DJ all types of events?
No. We specialize in weddings. We do not DJ at house parties, clubs, or bars
Do you act as “emcee” when you DJ? Are you cheesy/corny?
In response to the first question: we do act as the emcee of the wedding receptions that we DJ. As for the second question, we consider ourselves the least cheesy emcees in the Midwest. It bugs us as much as it bugs you. We make enough announcements to ensure that everything runs smoothly, and that guests are well informed, but ultimately we feel that you didn’t hire us to be a game show host, or to make your reception about us. We make sure as the emcee that your reception is about you.
I like DJ sets that have seamless transitions, can you do that?
Absolutely. We love them too! We beat match most of our transitions throughout the night, to hear some sample mixes, click here.
Do you offer event lighting?
Yes. We offer our standard dance lighting and uplighting. Uplighting is an additional fee of $45/light. Standard Dance lighting is included in our Classic package, and can be added to our Basic package for $100.
How involved are you in the planning process?
Very involved. We help you create a down-to-the-minute timeline for your reception. On your wedding day, we work with all of your other vendors to make sure everybody is on the same page.
How many hours will you DJ at my wedding/event?
Six hours. For each additional hour it is $100/hour.
The deluxe package is an additional $200/hour for every hour over the sixth.
What are your electricity/power needs?
We require a plugin with 120-volts, and a 15-amp circuit on a grounded outlet. The plugin also needs to be within 40 feet of the DJ booth. We do require power provisions be made for all services requested (including beach ceremonies) as we do not offer generators or battery operated equipment.
How involved can we (the bride and groom) be in our musical selection process?
Very involved. Once you book our DJ Services, we’ll send you 3 Google Docs; “Must Play”, “Do Not Play” and “Special Moments”. You’ll fill these out according to your preferences, and with this information, we get an accurate vision of what your day will look like. In fact, we love working with you to customize exactly what your cocktail and dinner music will sound like. It’s your day, so let’s make it as identity driven as possible. For dance-floor songs, we observe the dance floor closely and then play songs accordingly, to assure a packed dance floor.
Are you insured?
Yes. We have full liability insurance with a coverage value of $1,000,000. We are happy to provide you or your venue with a copy of our insurance policy upon request.
Can we come to a wedding you are involved with to audition you?
Because we value the integrity of our events, we don’t allow them to become sales opportunities for our business. We just don’t feel right inviting our own guests to other people’s weddings. You can be confident though that we will take the same approach with your wedding.
How large will our deposit be and how can we pay?
Upon booking, we require a deposit which is 50% of your service cost (not including mileage if applicable). This is payable within one week of booking our services. The remaining balance is due by two weeks before your wedding.
We accept the following payment methods: Chase Quick Pay, Credit Card or Check.
