Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will you be willing to play requests and discuss music ahead of time?
Answer: A versatile Disc Jockey is willing to listen to your suggestions, give you feedback and play from your desired song list. A professional Disc Jockey will also accept the fact you may not want certain songs played. Remember, even the best DJ cannot know everything about your musical preferences and entertainment needs without communication.
Q: Do you use Professional Equipment?
Answer: Ask whether your prospective Disc Jockey works with professional audio equipment. If you are not sure, ask for their equipment list and check with a local music dealer to verify they are using professional-grade sound gear. Remember that professional gear does not guarantee an entertainer's talent or service level, but is simply a tool for building an exceptional event.
Q: Do you provide backup equipment at my event?
Answer: Although equipment failure is rare, do you really want your special occasion ruined because your Disc Jockey did not come prepared? It is also important to know if your Disc Jockey has a back-up plan in case of illness or an accident. Booking a reliable Disc Jockey is a very important decision for the success of your party
Q: Does the Disc Jockey know the proper etiquette for your type of party?
Answer: A professional Disc Jockey will assist you with the planning of your special day. Most professional entertainers will coordinate, emcee and provide the music that you desire. Ask if they have experience with your type of event.
Q: How much time do you allow for set-up?
Answer: Punctuality is a necessity. Most Disc Jockey's arrive at least one hour prior to the start time you've given them. Your entertainer should ideally be setup and in-place before your first guest walks through the door.
Q: Do you provide a written contract?
Answer: It is extremely important to have your booking confirmed in writing. Ask for a written agreement, especially if you are paying an initial retainer. The standard initial payment for entertainment services is a non-refundable deposit fee of $50.00. If you are expecting a specific entertainer, make sure you get it in writing as well.

Q: Will you be suitably dressed for our occasion?
Answer: Specify the type of apparel that your Disc Jockey is expected to wear for your occasion. Formal attire or coat & tie are the most popular forms of attire. If you are having a "themed" event, make sure your entertainer is informed.
Q: Do you have lights? Are they included at no extra cost?
Answer: Some entertainers do not have any lights and fail to mention it when you have already booked and paid them. Mobile DJ has over 45 different kinds of lights and always brings them to every event and will set up as many possible in any amount of space available without any extra charge. Other DJ's will entice you by telling you that they will bring lights and set them along the wall for elegant look. Mobile DJ will bring the lights and hang them on a lighting truss for maximum enjoyment.
Q: Will you be my DJ?
Answer: An important question that must be asked. Other DJ services will tell you all you want to know about their entertainment company. However, they may not tell you that they will send someone else in their place and insist on charging you more if you would like them to DJ your event. Be careful of this practice. They might send you a DJ with little or no experience with no interpersonal skills. Bottom line - they will try to book as many events for the same date and charge you an inflated price to cover their own expenses of hiring another DJ and still make a dollar for themselves.
