FAQ's




We recognize that most of our clients don't hire music entertainment very often. In fact, many people don't even know what to ask when hiring a DJ service. We've assembled this list of most frequently asked questions to help you learn more about our service and to help you make a more informed decision about the music entertainment at your event.

How far ahead should we book your service?
It depends upon the date. Some clients choose to contract a year or more in advance, while some are comfortable waiting until several months prior. Saturdays are the busiest nights, so waiting too long to hire a DJ (or any service) for a Saturday night might lead to disappointment.

What are your rates?
Our rates vary depending upon the date, time needed,  location, package chosen, your specific needs and other variables that can impact the final rate.

How much is your deposit requirement?
We only require a $100 deposit to lock in the date and most promotions, some packages require a larger deposit.  You are welcome to make payments at any time, and we do accept all major credit cards.

Do you charge for travel?
Again, travel charges depend upon the circumstances, which is part of why we customize packages for each client. We normally do not charge travel for events 35 miles from the metro detroit area. Beyond that, $.75 per mile outside the metro area.

Can we choose the music?
Absolutely. It's your party! While we are happy to make suggestions, you have total control over the music that is played at your event. We have clients who choose every single song to be played; we have clients who leave it entirely up to us, and everything in between.  You can view songs by selecting the music tab.

Do you have current music?
We update our music library every week, so we always have the most current music. Please let us know if you have specific songs or artists you want played at your event.

What happens if you don't have a song we want, can we bring our own CDs?
Chances are we will have the music you are looking for.  Many of our clients bring their own CDs or MP3′s for any rare songs they don't think we will have. We are happy to play any music you wish to provide in addition to our normal library of choices. Should there be a special song you need that neither of us has, we will attempt to locate and retrieve that song for you. We cannot guarantee that a particular song is in print or is available, but we rarely come across a client request that we cannot accommodate.

Can you provide a sound system and music for our ceremony?
Sure, some of our clients ask us to play prelude music prior to the ceremony, along with a wedding processional for the bridal entrance and a wedding recessional for the exit from the ceremony. Occasionally, we are asked to play special songs for the seating of special family members or the entrance of the bridal party. Also, music can accompany any special moments that sometimes occur during the wedding ceremony (like a candle lighting, for instance). Go to our Services & Pricing tab for more information.

Can we observe an event?
We are very hesitant to send potential clients to another client's event (and we will take the same approach in not sending potential clients to your event). Besides the potential inconvenience to our client and also due to the fact that most events have a guestlist, there is no guarantee that event you visit will be anything like what you are looking for at your event.

When do we need to complete our song selections and formalities page?
We recommend that you return your planner to us at least two weeks prior to your event, if not sooner. This gives us time to look for specific songs requests and to help us ensure we have all of the music you request.

Will your DJ help with announcements?
Our DJs come equipped with a microphone and are happy to make announcements and to help coordinate activities at your event, if you want them to. We plan these activities and announcements with you ahead of time so there are no surprises or disappointments at your event.

What do your DJs wear?
Depending on the event, our DJ's attire will be most appropriate for the occasion. For example: for weddings and formal occasions the DJ will be in semi formal attire, for more casual events he will be in casual attire. But never will the DJ be under dressed for the occasion.

What kind of equipment do you use?
Our DJ's uses state-of-the-art, professional-grade sound equipment.  We have wireless microphones, dance lights, premium sound systems, up to date digital equipment to acommodate any event.

What time will your DJ arrive?
Typically our DJs arrive 60 minutes before start time. Our sound systems take 20 to 30 minutes to set up but we like to arrive extra early just in case.   Please let us know if you have special needs.

What do you need the facility to provide for you?
We would only require an electrical outlet and a 5 to 6 foot table.  If you need us to bring a table please let us know in advance.

Do you need to see the room you'll be working in before the day of my event?
Almost never. We've worked in every possible situation over the years and can make virtually any room or area work. Again, please let us know if you have special needs.
