- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
There are a lot of variables. Here is some current, base pricing which includes consultations, music, speakers, microphones, setup and breakdown: Non-wedding events (lighting, fog machines, etc. would be an additional fee): Starting at 2 hours $300 Weddings (this is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT days of your life... there is a LOT that goes into making a wedding ceremony and reception as perfect as possible, thus the higher pricing. There are no do-overs for a wedding and reception, so it better be done correctly the first time): We will offer different packages for weddings & receptions, starting with basic audio and MC services for just your reception for just $900, and going up from there to the full package with audio for rehearsal, ceremony, & reception, and also for reception... up-lighting, dance-floor lighting, fog machines, projector and screen for slideshows or videos, dancing on the clouds effect, bubble generators, confetti cannon blast, and custom monogram projection. Let's set up a call or meeting to see if we're a good fit!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I generally start by sending a questionnaire to the client, that usually gets him/her thinking about the details of the event... sometimes it brings up things that he/she hasn't thought of yet. After that, maybe a phone call, video chat, and/or meeting in person. I also provide a unique, free app for music planning for your event. You can even invite guests and family members to the free app to have input on the song selection. I love to get to know him/her a little & get together to discuss all the details of the planned event... The venue, the plans of the other professionals involved in the event (photographers, caterers, etc.), the atmosphere that is desired with music & lighting, different possible elements during the event that require special attention from DJ/MC, etc. I'd like to meet with the client once, twice, or even more times if needed, to ensure there are no questions left unanswered before the day of the event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have attended numerous conferences with breakout sessions & classes on live audio and DJ'ing, & studied online & with others in person. I am constantly listening to podcasts, watching videos, and reading articles online to learn & stay ahead of the technology that is available and the trends in the industry. I have a LOT more knowledge about the physics of sound & audio equipment than most DJ's. I also spent 5 years running audio every week for a Church, including putting on elaborate Christmas shows. I am an active member of Toastmasters International, American Disc Jockey Association (ADJA), and also CPR certified.
