Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a set-up and takedown fee?
There is no extra fee. Set-up and takedown are part of our service.
How much of the music can we (the client) request?
You can select all the music you want.
However, I am experienced and knowledgeable in many areas of music. I have learned what people generally like to dance to and which songs they will enjoy most. My expertise in this area can be very beneficial, but the ultimate choice is yours.
How far in advance should I book a DJ?
Most popular dates book 6-8 months in advance. I have several clients that have booked a year in advance. As with all event planning, the sooner, the better.
Will there be extra charges for travel time?
In most cases, no. I travel between Paso Robles and Santa Barbara. I may charge a travel fee if your event is past these areas.
Will we meet our DJ before the event?
Yes. Both current and potential clients are encouraged to meet with me. Once hired, we will plan a meeting to review your event’s timeline and select all your music.
Will I receive a contract?
Yes. Every client receives a contract. This document details all issues about your event. The contract protects both of our interests.
What Types of Payment Do You Accept?
We accept Cash, Check, Venmo, Zelle, credit cards (Visa and Mastercard)
What is the advantage of booking a DJ vs. a Band?
Who doesn’t love the sound of a live band? But most bands have a limited playlist. And they usually won’t coordinate announcements for things like the Grand Entrance, Toast, or other Specialty Dances. Your DJ & emcee will do all that! And budget wise, a DJ is the best way to go.
How Do We Request Songs?
We will set you up with online planning tools with your assigned login and password. There, you can plan out all your requested dance songs. As well as your specialty dance songs.
What Is The Cost Of A Wedding DJ??
