- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I try to keep things very simple. My pricing is very straightforward and there are never any hidden fees or surprises. My goal is to give my clients exactly what they want at the lowest possible cost. I never charge for my set up or tear down time. I offer custom packages to each of my clients so that you receive and pay for only what you need and want. When I put together a package, I offer lots of discounts and even some free stuff! The larger the package, the bigger the discount! I also offer significant discounts for off-peak weddings and events.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Once I receive an inquiry, I respond immediately via email in order to answer any questions they may have. I also send a link to my wedding or event questionnaire and encourage them to fill it out as completely as possible. Once I receive the necessary information, I email them an event proposal and a link to my online planning tools. I am always available to answer any questions and make any changes to the proposal to make sure it is exactly what is desired. In order to book my services the client simply signs and returns the event proposal with the required deposit (usually $100).Then the planning process begins and I am always available to work with each and every client as their event and entertainment professional.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Music and entertainment have been my full-time profession since 1991. I have served as DJ/MC and entertainment specialist at literally thousands of weddings, corporate events and private parties. I have traveled throughout California and all across the United States to share my skill and expertise as a professional entertainment specialist. I have been a featured speaker at numerous DJ conventions and I personally trained many of the Sacramento areas finest DJs. At last count there are at least six full-time DJ companies in Sacramento whose owners were trained by and works for me at some point. Music and entertainment are my passion and my business.
