------------------------------------------------------------

 

1) Do you use professional equipment?

 

     Of Course!! We've invested thousands in making sure we have the absolute finest and most reliable sound and lighting technology available. Our setups cost nearly double that of what an average DJ's speakers system would cost, and pump out crystal clear audio with out annoying feedback or distortion. At Your Next DJ we also have back-up systems on site for every event in the case a problem should arise. This way you can relax. We've got you covered!

 

2) Can I meet with you and see you perform?

 

     We always look forward to meeting with our clients in person prior to the event. This is a great opportunity to get to know our clients a little better and it helps us get a feel for the exact type of entertainment they desire. As for seeing us work, we prefer not to invite potential clients to private events. We feel this can be rude to our booked clients and our dedicated time to them can be distracted. When you hire us, we'll be working for only you that day. No Split Loyalties. If a DJ offers to have you visit someone else's event then there is a very good chance they will invite strangers to your special occasion as well. This decision would ultimately be at the discretion of our booked client.

 

3) Do you have proper attire? What will you wear?

 

     Yes, we do dress in formal attire. Usually all in black with an accent color. However, we ask that you let us know the proper attire for your event. We have tuxedos, suits, business casual. Whatever your occasion, we'll make sure to dress appropriately. If you need us to have matching colors for your wedding that is definitely an option.

 

4) Do you have back-up equipment on-site?

 

     Absolutely! Luckily we've never experienced a major equipment malfunction in our many years of operation, but as with all electronics they are man made and can fail. For this reason alone we choose to take extra steps to make sure we're always prepared by bringing a FULL backup system!

 

5) Are you willing to be the announcer/MC?

 

     Of course! In fact, we'd prefer it. Our number one prioriy is always to make you and your guests feel comfortable and relaxed. We bring together all the loose ends so everything flows seamlessly.

 

6) How much room will the DJ need?

 

     On average we typically require a 10 foot by 10 foot area for our sound and lighting systems. We also generally require our area to be within 50 feet of a standard 120 volt power source. If that won't work no worries! We've made special accommodations in the past and we'll be happy to design an ideal sound and lighting system that work for your event.

 

7) What's your company policy on "clean"music"?

 

     This is a very important question and is one that has become increasingly popular. Our company policy is to avoid playing songs with questionable content or at least play only the "clean" versions of them. Since the word "clean" is such a subjective term we do ask for you to inform us as to what your personal standards are. Here at Your Next DJ we try to use our best moral judgment on  these circumstances. We're especially focused on providing a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.

 

8) Is setup time included in your price?

 

     You never have to pay for setup or takedown time. We typically arrive at least 2-3 hours prior to your scheduled start time for complete setup and sound/equipment tests. But it's on our own time! The same applies for takedown time after your event.

 

9) Do you take breaks?

 

     Our services are truly uninterrupted and non-stop. From our scheduled start time to our scheduled end time we will never pause to take a break. Much unlike bands that need to stop and rest, we can just keep playing straight through your event!

 

10) How interactive are you with the guests?

 

     A very familiar question! Often times when a prospective client is looking for the perfect DJ, they search for one who fits the level of interaction they're looking for, whether it be conservative or outgoing. We actually let you decide how much interaction you would like. We can be conservative, outgoing, or anywhere in between. By default, we're only as interactive as necessary to keep your guests having a good time on the dance floor. In any case, you'll never hear us yelling, screaming, or even singing over the microphone. Even at our most outgoing level, we still remain totally professional and never steal the spotlight!

 

11) Is tipping/gratuity expected?

 

     By no means is tipping/gratuity mandatory or expected. We charge a professional rate for a professional service. This means you won't see a tip jar on our table. If at the end of the night you feel that we have surpassed your expectations and you want to provide gratuity, we would accept it as the utmost compliment.

 

12) Should we provide you with a meal?

 

     One of our most popular questions! The answer is that it is completely up to you. From setup to break down time, we'll often be at your event for nearly 8 hours or more. Our only request is that you let us know either way ahead of time. This way we can stop and pick something up along the way, if necessary. If you do choose to provide a meal, we'd greatly appreciate it. We suggest not including us in your count since usually a few guests don't show. But don't worry if you're working on a tight budget because there is no meal clause of any kind in our contract!

 

13) How early should we book?

 

     Simply put...the sooner the better! Some of the most popular dates can and do book as early as one year in advance. Depending on availability, some dates remain open until the month before. So if you're planning an event for next month, it's worth it to check our availability. If you're just starting your planning, try to make your final decision as soon as possible to ensure our availability. If you wish to begin the booking process, you may access our Inquiry Form HERE.
