Will you hold my date for me once I have enquired?
Yes of course, I will hold the date for 1 week and then thereafter until someone else enquires.
How do I go ahead and book you?
Once you have contacted me to let me know you’d like to book, I will send you a contract which should be read and digitally signed. An invoice will also be sent – I require a deposit of £200 to secure the booking. Payments can be made via bank transfer. Once received I will then send you booking confirmation. You will then gain access to your own client planning portal.
What sort of music do you play?
Pretty much anything you want me to play, I have vast selection of music. While my job is to read the crowd and get people dancing, I always give the opportunity for you to give me a playlist which I can then build around.
Will you take song requests from guests on the night?
As long as you are happy for me to then yes. Although I will take into account your DO NOT playlist if you have provided one!
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and a valid PAT certificate?
Yes. Being a member of NADJ (The National Association of Disc Jockeys) I am provided with PLI cover up to £10 million. And all of my equipment is also tested annually (P.A.T.).
I can supply you or your venue with copies of these certificates if requested.
How much do you charge?
Prices can depend on a few different factors, along with the addition of the extras I can provide, so please get in touch for a quote.
However prices start at £495 for evening party entertainment and at £725 for evening wedding entertainment, with most clients opting to spend around £550 and £800 respectively.
Why do you charge more for weddings?
This is mainly down to much more time being spent on the planning of a wedding, such as client and venue meetings, along with music and detail preparation.
What happens if you are sick on the day?
In the unlikely event I was sick on the day of your event I would immediately contact some other local DJ businesses who I know well, along with some other DJ friends to find you a suitable replacement. I am also a member of NADJ (The National Association of Disc Jockeys) so there are many other DJs I can reach out to if required.
Thankfully I have never had to do this.
What will you wear at our wedding?
My dress code is always smart-modern, so trousers, waistcoat, shirt and bow tie/tie. I can however change what I wear if you have a preference or to fit in with a theme.
How long does it take you to set up your equipment?
It depends on which options you go for and if you have any extras. I don’t like to rush setting up, and would rather take a bit more time to test everything fully, so I always arrive early where I can. But if a quick set up is required then roughly an hour or so.
My aim always is to cause as little disruption as possible when setting up, and I will fully discuss the timings of your event with you to ensure this.
My friend is a singer, can they perform at our wedding?
They can, but if only if everything is discussed and planned with me well in advance. I don’t generally let people use the mic during a party, drunken singing doesn’t usually go down so well!
