Do you require a deposit? What forms of payment do you accept?

We usually require a 50% deposit. You can also do 25%, if that works better for you. Balance is due 10 days before the event. We accept, check, cash, paypal or credit card.

Do you charge extra fees for setting up and tearing down? Are there any hidden costs?

There are no hidden costs. Arriving early, setting up and tearing down are all part our job, and we’re happy to do it.

Who arrives at the event?

First of all, your DJ, of course. If there are additional sound systems, such as a ceremony system, he will often have an assistant to help with the setup and breakdown of of the equipment so that the DJ can focus on executing a flawless event.

Do you have references from past clients?

Yes we do! Lots of ‘em! You can check out our Reviews page, or we can put you in direct contact with recent brides and groom, in case you’d like to pick their brain.

Do you take requests?

Yes, we’re always open to requests, but there are always a few factors to consider:

  1. Does the song they requested fit in line with the rest of the music the client has requested.
  2. Who is the person making the request? If it’s a parent of the bride, groom, or guest of honor, we’re going to take that request a lot more seriously than we would if drunk Uncle Jimmy requests the Macarena.

Speaking of requests, can clients request specific songs they’d like the DJ to play?

Absolutely. You can get as involved as you like with your music selection.

You can create a username and password and login to our Online Request Form, where you can choose music for every part of the event. We help out by giving you some suggestions as well. We’re also very good at feeling out the crowd to figure out what will excite them at any particular moment. We also ask you to give us your “Do Not Play” list, which is also EQUALLY as important. We wouldn’t want to play a Bruce Springsteen song if your soon-to-be mother-in-law dated him back in the 60s.

Are DJ’s required to have insurance?

All DJs are not required to have insurance. But, if they want to work as a professional DJ at some of the more upscale venues in town, they’re going to need it. The good news is that NYC DJS does have insurance so you’re covered.

How far in advance should we book our DJ?

Good question! Dates can book up pretty quickly. We would suggest booking your DJ about 6-12 months in advance. Many couples start booking DJs at the 1-year mark. If your event is on a Friday or a Sunday, you usually have a little more time.

Do you have backup equipment?

We were boy scouts in a former life. Of course we do!

Can we see a DJ “in action” at an event, prior to deciding whether or not to hire them?

This can be kind of tricky. A lot of our DJs play out at clubs, bars and venues around town so you can always check them out in this public-type of arena.

However, we wouldn’t invite a couple to another couple’s wedding–how rude! Additionally you could show up during the wrong time, such as toasts or dinner, and not see what you want, anyway.

We recommend meeting the DJ in person, and going by referrals, testimonials, and personality.

What is your favorite HBO series?

Excellent question. There are several amazing shows out right now. At the time of writing this, let’s go with Game of Thrones…but more new shows are always coming out 🙂
