Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Look for a DJ that has been in business for over 5+ years. Stay away from DJ's that charge half that of real professionals, chances are they will cancel at the last minute to take a better paying event, we often receive requests to perform for an event weeks, even days before ..due to a cancellation by or no response from a DJ. Book your dates at least 6 month's in advance, calendars fill up quickly.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Why do DJ's charge so much ?... We spend an equivalent amount of time preparing for your event, as we do actually performing your event. Equipment, Insurance, Music Licensing etc.
