How much time do you usually need to set up? 

  • We will need 60-90 minutes prior to guests arriving (depending on the complexity of the lighting package) for setup and sound check.
  • We will bring our own table and cover unless otherwise directed. 

Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events? 

  • No - we prefer to generate leads via word of mouth, not by advertising at your event. We will give our business cards only as requested. 

Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs? 

  • Important announcements are made smoothly and professionally, but we prefer to let the music speak for itself rather than use heavy mic work to hype your guests. 

How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing? 

  • Honestly, this is never an issue - great upbeat music selections to fill the floor early and seamlessly beat matched to provide continuity is key to creating a great party atmosphere for the whole event.  
  • Preparation and communication beforehand to understand your event guarantees that no one is left out from having a great time.

What is your policy on taking breaks? 

  • No breaks are standard, if a meal is planned for us we will play through dinner. 

What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event? 

  • We always back each other up and do not schedule two events on the same day. 
  • We also maintain a network of other DJs in the areas we cover.  

Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? 

  • Only one event per day is our policy so we can focus exclusively on your event.

What is your overtime rate? 

  • Depends on the hourly rate for your event, but not more that the standard hourly rate. 

Do you charge for travel expenses? 

  • No additional charge within a reasonable 2 hour driving radius of Philly - our prices are all-inclusive, ask if you have concerns 

What is required to book your services? 

  • Incredibly simple. If you are ready to move forward, a contract with all specific event details will be emailed to you. 
  • If everything looks good, it can be signed at our face-to-face meeting or digitally signed. 
  • We offer convenient, password-protected online planning and song selection tools, along with secure credit card payment options. 
  • A 50% retainer (payable by check or credit card) completes the booking process, with balance due 7 days prior to the event.
