Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My fee is $125/hour, with a 3 hour ($375) minimum. This price includes travel, set up and break down time, and basic MC services. I am flexible on pricing depending on the event and the possibility of future business. Dance floor lighting can be provided for a small additional fee. For very special events, I have an MC partner who charges a separate fee of $150 per event.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
It starts with a phone conversation or in-person meeting. I ask questions about the event's purpose, expected guests, and type of preferred music. I let the client ask me about the events I've done in the past, and music I typically provide. Through email, I ask the customer to complete a playlist of requested/required songs, and a draft program of the event (if applicable). Lastly, I prepare an agreement that describes what I need, what I will provide, as well as payment arrangement.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was a music seller at Borders Books and Music for several years which further expanded my knowledge of different genres of music. I maintained an online radio station through Live365 for several years, allowing me to share my love for independent R&B and Hip-Hop music.
