Frequently Asked Questions:
We know you have a lot of questions on your mind. For your convenience here is a collection of the questions we often hear from clients. Of course if you don’t find what you’re looking for here, call (801) 566-5614 to speak with our manager, Aubrey Petersen.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, Check, Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover)
Do you require a deposit and how much?
We require a non-refundable $250.00 deposit to secure your date. This guarantees you will have a DJ for your date. The deposit will be applied to your balance.
How does your pricing work?
As you may have noticed we do not list our pricing on our website or our brochures. We feel that booking a DJ based solely on price is never a good idea. While our pricing is on the low end of average, we feel it is more important to book a DJ based on referrals, reputation, expertise, qualifications, etc., and not on price.
Our pricing structure is very simple; most DJs charge an hourly rate with a three-hour minimum. This means that at some juncture they may have to ask you for more money, or you would have to end your event when the contracted time is done. We do not like this because it takes the emphasis and focus off of you and your event and quite simply…places it on the exchange of money. Our basic pricing is for UP TO 6 hours (this generally covers the majority of the events that we do; hourly rates apply after 6 hours). This allows us to set up before your guests arrive (equipment set up and tear down is not included in package time*), play background or ceremony music (if your ceremony is in the same area as your reception**); make announcements, etc. at no additional charge. At our regular hourly rate (after 6 hours), you pay for 4 hours but get UP TO 6 hours.
Most importantly, it decreases the stress level of the event for you and us, AND….YOU get to call an end to your event, not us, based on what is happening specifically at that moment.
UP TO 3 hour price packages are available FOR RECEPTIONS ONLY. This pricing applies ONLY to events where the guests arrive AFTER the event starts, ie. we do not want to set up while your guests are there. Our set-up will happen immediately prior to the beginning of the contracted period.
(*equipment set-up is done immediately prior to the contracted period)
(**a second sound system (at a reduced rate) may be required for ceremonies at certain locations)
As far as we know we are the only ones who do our pricing this way. Give us a call for specific pricing for your event.
How far do you travel?
We have done events all over the country. There is no limit to how far we travel. There is a travel fee involved with any event outside the Salt Lake valley
What kind of music do you play?
First and foremost, whatever you as our client would like us to play. Secondly we customize our music specifically to the people in attendance to maximize participation. Participation is the measure of a successful event and recognition is a key element of musical energy. We generally play what we refer to as a “Super Hits Format.” This music (old or new) is highly recognizable by a large percentage of people.
Do you take requests during the event?
How much experience do you have?
Actual experience varies between individual DJs. After being hired, each DJ has gone through extensive training and is fully capable of utilizing all the ‘tricks, secrets and tools of the trade,’ developed in the almost 25 years we have been doing weddings/corporate events and drawing on over 40 plus years of actual DJ experience.
Do you get involved?
We can be as high profile or low profile as you would like us to be. Tell us what is perfect for you! We are able to use every trick, tool and secret at our disposal as DJs and Emcees to energize your event and maximize the participation of everyone involved. We also bring to the table an entire arsenal of games, contests, props, sound effects, dance instruction, etc. all at no additional charge.
What makes you different?
We take pride in our reputation. We are known for being professional, dependable, and consistent in our services. We take a pro-active approach to make sure every event is extraordinary. Our high level of expertise and great customer service, combined with our extensive knowledge of the tricks, tools and secrets, give our staff their unique edge in this competitive market.
What else makes you different?
You cannot teach personality. All of our DJs are fun, entertaining, and interactive. We have sound and lights to create the environment, the music to create the vibe, and we don’t give people an excuse to leave the dance floor. Working together, we will make sure that we transform the typical into the unique, and the average into the extraordinary, so the finished product exceeds your expectations! It’s what we do better than anybody else… or so the professionals say.
Do you have lights?
Of course! We have different lighting packages to choose from. From mild to wild, subtle to Studio 54, pick the lighting that will best complement your event. Because lighting is subjective, we price it separately.
Is there a fee for your consultations?
Never. All of our consultations are free and we prefer to see our clients at least twice before their event.
What kind of equipment do you use?
We utilize high end, professional equipment and electronics featuring such manufacturers as JBL, Denon, Numark, Yamaha, Peavy, and Shure. All equipment is regularly cleaned and maintained so that failures and surprises are minimized. Back-up systems are regularly carried so that if a problem does occur, downtime is minimal. From your living room to a 6,000-person ballroom, we have the equipment to fit your needs and make your event successful.
What is your cancellation policy?
The deposit is non-refundable, but can be applied to a different date or event.
Do you have an insurance policy?
We are fully insured in accordance with state laws and industry regulations.
What is your availability?
Due to the constant changes in scheduling, and the impersonal nature of checking availability over the internet, we would prefer to have you call us to check and see if there is a DJ available.
Can you conduct large (400+ attendee) events?
Allow us to dazzle you and your guests with a larger sound system. Prices vary according to your individual needs.
