1) Do you provide all the equipment and lighting?
YES, all Sound equipment, Dance Floor lighting and radio mics if required are provided as standard with every DJ or Karaoke booking.

2) Can I give you a Music Request List for the DJ to play?
YES, you may have as much input into the music selection as you wish by emailing a request list prior to the event and making requests on the night.

3) Can I speak to or meet the actual DJ prior to the event?
YES, you may discuss all your ideas and music choices with your DJ before the event, either in person or on the telephone.

4) What will the DJ be wearing on the night?
The DJ will wear smart shirt and trousers unless you request Black Tie or have a costume themed event.

5) How much space does the DJ require and how long will it take to be set up ready to go?
Approximately a 6ft x 3ft table space is required and takes up to an hour to be set up.

6) How much do you charge?
Every event is unique so the price can vary, however the price quoted is clear with no hidden extras. The price can depend on the amount of hours you want the DJ to perform, this usually varies from 4 to 12 hours depending on the event. Choosing a DJ based solely on price is not recommended, choose a DJ that ticks all your boxes and is fully prepared to give you exactly what you want without compromise.

7) My mate says he knows somebody that can do the disco for £100, why should I book you?
As the saying goes, you get what you pay for, £100 may seem like good value, but you are unlikely to get the reliability and high quality equipment and service a professional DJ & disco can provide. In our experience, we find that a cheap DJ will easily cancel on you with no valid reason or will turn up late or not bother turning up at all. Your celebration is a unique one off event, why take a chance on booking a cheap, inexperienced and unreliable DJ? It isn't worth the hassle or the anxiety just to save a few pounds and worst of all it could ruin your whole party.

8) I am now happy to go ahead and make a booking, what next?
You will be sent a booking contract that requires completing, signing and returning along with a deposit. Once received back you will be sent a contract invoice via email as confirmation of your booking, the money paid and balance due. The balance must be paid 7 days prior to the event via cheque or bank transfer or if more convenient you can pay in cash on the night.

9) The venue has asked is the DJ PAT compliant and does he have PLI?
YES, PAT is an annual Electrical Safety Certificate and PLI is Public Liability Insurance, your DJ has both. This can be sent direct to the venue on your behalf.

10) I am thinking of having a band or an act, how does this affect the DJ?
It is handy to let us know prior to the event, this will enable your DJ to liaise with the band/act to ensure a smooth and professional set up that will compliment everybody and enhance the appearance. A live band typically performs for 90 minutes and would not usually have any dance floor lighting, so having a band does not replace the need for a DJ.

11) How do I pay?
You can pay via bank transfer, cheque or cash. A deposit via any of these methods is required to confirm the booking. 
All the details will be on the booking contract sent to you via email or post.

12) Can you provide up lights to transform our venue?
Yes we can enhance the look and feel of any room with our modern range of LED up lights in any colour, also our up lights are wireless so no messy cables or extension leads.

13) Can you provide background & ceremony music with microphones for speeches during the day of my wedding?
Yes, we can build a comprehensive package to include both day and evening music with use of microphones for speeches.

14) Are you familiar and comfortable performing at a same sex wedding?
All our clients are treated with equal and utmost respect and we have performed at many fantastic same sex weddings and civil partnerships over the years. 

15) What other event services can you provide?
We work with some of the best entertainment suppliers in the UK so if you are looking to hire any other services such as Dance Floor, Photo Booth, Saxophonist, Large LED Letters, Dry Ice Effects, Adult Games or Casino etc we can offer you special rates.
