2 Describe your DJ style:
Our disc jockey can be a "work in the background" DJ or be a "very pro-active & high audience participation" DJ. You tell us how you want our disc jockey to inter-act with your guests and we will accommodate that request
3 Is there a limit to the amount of music that guests can request?
Within reason and what our client’s final word is on allowing requests.
4 If you do not have some of the songs requested by the client do you require that they provide it?
Our DJ will cover the requested songs a couple may list if they are listed in our extensive 3 ring planner notebook music library.
5 How many other DJs do you work with?
SWP has 1 other disc jockey on our staff, but each work separate events. Whichever DJ you meet & sign up with will be the DJ at your event.
NOTE: We are wanting to hire
another experienced DJ who specializes in weddings.
6 What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ an event?
Unless arrangements have been made for an exception, 3 hours is our usual minimum for a non-wedding event.
We can be very flexible with your event time-line, though—just ask.
7 Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes, we encourage it. No need in our playing a song that reminds the Bride or Groom of a past romance, right?
8 Do you bring your own equipment?
Of course...All DJ equipment belongs to SoundworkS Productions DJ Services. For weddings, we bring 2 complete & separate DJ stations which is handy especially if the DJ plays for the Ceremony, the Wedding Dinner & the Reception.
9 What (if any) special equipment, such as lighting, is offered with your service?
SoundworkS Productions DJ Services has top shelf professional DJ digital lighting/laser effects that fill a room. Our digital lighting truly enhances the dance floor and Bridal magazines say increase the number of guests who dance.
NOTE: We do run periodical "FREE" promotions with our Digital Lighting Effects & Karaoke.
10 How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
An SWP disc jockey arrives 1.5 to 2 hours before Weddings. We ask that our client or the management of the event venue of set up one sturdy 6 foot table (such as those found at Walmart) capable of handling 100 pounds of DJ gear. Optional: A black table cloth for a 6 foot table. If you or the venue cannot provide this please tell your DJ who will come up with a Plan B.
11 Do you have any extra space requirements?
There is usually no need for any extra space for an SWP DJ set-up. An area of 6 feet x 6 feet with a 6 foot table is the norm. Speakers are usually set up 6-8 feet from each end of the table. Important Note: Try not to put your guests table (especially senior adults) too close to the DJ station if possible as the speakers do get loud even when turned down.
12 Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, we just think it is not professional to do such. If someone wants to know about us, our DJ's usually have their business cards available.
13 Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
An SWP disc jockey usually doubles in the role of DJ and Master of Ceremonies at at a Wedding event. We can be a "work in the background" DJ or a "pro-active/audience participation" disc jockey. Just tell our DJ your preference.
14 How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Our DJ would play popular line dances such as Cupid Shuffle, Boot Scootin’ Boogie, Copperhead Road, Cha Cha Slide or any number of line dance songs since these usually fill the dance floor. Line dances are great for those who came alone or don't have a dance partner.
15 What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Most times our DJ is busy being the DJ—If after the dinner or buffet there are ample left-overs, many times our clients or their caterers prepare a meat (only) platter.
16 Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes...There will be pre-recorded music played while an SWP DJ is on a very short 5 minute break. Our DJ’s use both a laptop and/or our top shelf dual CD system.
17 Do you charge for travel expenses?
No, we have one “turn key” quote that covers everything. You can expect no surprise “add-ons” from an SWP Disc Jockey at the initial "no obligation" meeting.
18 What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Our clients can pay their entire event fee in 2 equal payments—interest free. Any check(s) should be paid to the order of (the DJ who DJ's your event's name) Note: Ask about our special discount offered at the initial "no obligation" meeting.
19 What are your over-time fees?
For each hour over the contracted time is $100 per hour. This should be paid at the beginning of the over-time & if at all possible with cash.
