How loud do you play the music?
One of the greatest complaints about bands and DJs is that they play the
music too loud. This should never happen! Controlling the
volume is one of the skills of an experienced DJ. The speakers are
positioned for proper sound coverage to allow the music to be powerful
enough for dancing and yet comfortable for conversation throughout the
rest of the room.
Some venues or events may require
additional sound reinforcement or may even require an additional speaker
to be in a separate room. All this is possible. The sound system
is set up to fit the occasion. Your music is presented with fullness and
depth. The sound quality is superb.
Do you take breaks?
No. Unlike a band there are no breaks... the music is
Can we choose the music to be played?
Yes, of course you can. This is your day. Your favorite
music is a big party of the event. Your music choices are very important
and the pre-event planner will address your choices and preferred music.
Keep in mind the music and the flow of songs is planned to enhance the
various elements of your event. Through many years of experience Mike
has learned that to keep the atmosphere happy and the dance floor moving
there are many factors. This includes not only the music played, but
when and how the songs are mixed together and the interaction of the
Master of Ceremonies. In the “planner” you may provide a list of
"must play" songs and a list of "play if possible" songs. Your
preferences and song selections are always given the highest priority!
Is there any extra charge for setup time?
No, there is no charge for the
setup or disassembly time. Generally, arrival time is 60-90
minutes before starting. If you require an earlier set up time, a small
charge may be apply. The sound system is set and checked and ready
to go before the 1st guest arrives.
Can we have a "do not play" list?
Absolutely. And, you can be assured the greatest care is taken to avoid
any selections that could be considered beyond the limits of good
What if we want a song that you don't have?
If the selection is not in the current library, every effort will be
made to acquire it. Of course you are welcome to provide “special”
music on CD in our planning phase.
Do you carry backup equipment?
Yes. Even though the very finest “State-of-the-art” sound equipment is
employed (Sony, Mackie, NuMark, Yamaha) a good DJ is always prepared.
Critical backup equipment is always brought along.
