Frequently Asked Questions

A contract is provided to protect both parties and to make the booking official. This can be signed and returned by mail, email or in person. A deposit is required to complete the contract.

Arrival time can vary but normally it is anywhere between 1 to 3 hours before guest arrival time. Please be sure to include the estimated guest arrival time and not just the start time according to the invitation. It is important to include the guest arrival time on your event planner so that we can plan with accurate setup time requirements.

What breaks? The music won't stop unless the power goes out and even that is optional. Ask us about our generator rentals.

When it comes to pricing, there is much to consider for hiring a disc jockey. You should find out from your DJ if his price includes a light show, a microphone, dinner music, master of ceremonies work, length of play time as well as other things such as how many songs the DJ has and the quality of their equipment. There could also be tax on top of the price or even extra hidden charges such as an extra $200 to $300 to guarantee you are getting the actual disc jockey that you are meeting with. This is a common charge with many DJ companies and charges that The Music Man DJ Service does not believe in. Experience, expenses and expertise also help to determine the cost of a DJ. Many DJ's who are just starting off will keep their price as low as possible to try to acquire a few clients to practice on. If you're serious about having a professional who will do a good job, you should try to avoid choosing a DJ based on price alone.

What kind of music do you want us to play? You have your answer. We can accommodate your style or preferences with either a traditional format or a custom or modern dance format. Do you want a club vibe with a lot of remixes and dance beats or do you like rock and roll? Prefer some old school tracks or are you more of a country and western kind of gal? Let us know! We can accommodate you. Our specialty is knowing how to appeal to different age groups and styles and making the music all work together.

If the crowd isn't ready to quit, neither are we! You can add additional hours to your package on the spot.

Unless our client instructs us not to, yes, of course we will. Our main goal as a DJ service is to give the best experience to as many people at an event as possible while following the event planner. Requests are ordered in a format that will flow smoothly with the music in a logical sequence or if appropriate, first come, first served.

Check off the items you want on your event planner at the bottom of the form to order any of our additional services or you can call or send an email. If your rental requires a deposit ahead of time, you will be notified by email. We offer a wide variety of payment options.

Don't lose your date! Ideally, you want to book DJ Services at least 9 months to a year before your event date to increase the likeliness of availability. Events are booked first come, first served. A deposit is required to hold a date.

In a standard 4-hour timeframe while the dance floor is open, a DJ can only realistically fit in between 60 to 70 songs. I recommend a maximum of 20 requests. You should not try fill up all of these songs with your own requests or you are essentially not letting us use our expertise to keep the dance floor full. Giving too few or no song requests isn't recommended either. Give us an idea of the kind of music you like so we know how to make you happy. Help me help you! Keep in mind that we have a lot of experience in selecting music so we know how to juggle different styles.

After you submit the form, if it takes you to the next page and if it says the form was submitted, that means there were no errors. Another way to tell is by checking the option at the bottom of the form to email yourself the planner when you submit it. If you received the email then we received the data as well.

You password is a generated key which is part of the event planner link we provide you by email. You are automatically logged in by clicking on the link provided. You can also copy and paste this code from your email into the password field on your event planner.

The most important thing we need is for you to fill out your event planner. Our DJs use these for every event and we find that keeping the format consistent means that everything runs smoothly. Other than that, the other things to take care of are to sign a contract and finalize payment. At your event we require a table and a plug unless you choose to order one of our generators.

If you choose to pay by credit card, there is a credit card service charge which typically ranges from $10 to $25 dollars depending on the amount being charged. You can avoid this fee if you pay by another method such as cash or eTransfer.

Cancelled or changed event dates are handled on a case by case basis depending on the scenario and DJ availability on the new date. We will try to be as reasonable as possible in every circumstance. You wouldn't lose your entire deposit for a changed date, however, there are times when we have to pay out-of-pocket for date changes so this could reflect the price.

Absolutely. Rain or shine, we do not leave this to chance. Even if the shelter is as small as a 7' by 7' covered gazebo, we require some sort of protection as there would not be enough time to move our entire system without the risk of damaging equipment if it did start to rain. The DJ needs the ability to keep the music playing if the event continues outdoors during light downfalls.

If a microphone is part of your DJ package, you can assign people to use it throughout the night as long as it returns to the microphone stand after they are done speaking. We recommend trying to complete announcements or speeches before the dance floor is open.

If you do not provide the band and DJ service with a timeline of who is playing and when, we will coordinate with the band to figure out a performance schedule.

If you require the DJ to be on location for more than 4 hours total, we ask for a meal equivalent to what you will be feeding your guests. If there is no meal provided to the guests, then we do not require a meal.

We ask for you to include any requests or special instructions in your online event planner. Additional information can be pasted into the bottom column under "Additional Comments". We find email to be less reliable as instructions can change over time but emails cannot be edited. Your event planner however can be changed and it is connected to your account so anyone who logs in can see the most up-to-date information.

This is completely up to you. I don't bite. We can also go over all of your details online or over the phone (whichever is easiest for you).

We keep it clean and we keep it classy. We have clean versions for most songs that are requested.

Generally, we do not do this. Spring and summer months can be very busy and to be fair to other clients who are ready to book, we serve clients on a first come, first served basis. Putting down a deposit is the only way to finalize your booking.
