When will my Disc Jockey arrive at my event and are there any setup or breakdown fees?
Our Disc Jockey/MC Interactive Entertainer will arrive 1 hour prior to the start time of your event. This allows sufficient time to unload, setup and sound check. There is no charge for travel time, setup or breakdown.

Our Disc Jockey/MC Interactive Entertainer will have an extensive selection of music consisting of Club Dance, Classic Rock, Country/Western, Oldies, Big Band, Motown, R & B, Rap, Disco, Hip-Hop, Ethnic and much more.

You select the music and we’ll play it for you.
Will my Disc Jockey play requests?
Absolutely. Our Confirmation Letter will include a list of the Top 300 Most Requested Songs. Highlight the songs you would like to hear and indicate the songs you do not want to hear. If you don’t see a particular song on our list, write it down and we will get it for you. Our Disc Jockey/MC Interactive Entertainer will take your requests and work them in with songs he feels will properly motivate your guests. On the day of your event, he will be happy to take requests from your guests also.
What are Party Props?
They are theme props that coordinate with the music and are presented at just the right moment to add creativity and fun to your event. They are great crowd pleasers making for priceless pictures and impressionable memories, and your guests may keep them as a souvenir of your unique event. Some of the party props we use are: Glow necklaces, assorted hats, inflatable instruments, and much, much more.
Will my Disc Jockey contact me prior to my event?
A meeting will be scheduled in our office 2 weeks prior to your wedding to review all the details of your event, including the proper pronunciation for the introductions, ceremonies, and specialty dances, etc. We will also review your music selections and make any changes necessary. Voice overs will be recorded and you will be able to meet with your DJ. Our office is open everyday from 9 AM to 7 PM.
