On this page you will find a list of some of the most frequently asked questions. If your question is not among them, just contact me to answer them.
Your Questions Followed By My Answers:
1.) Do you offer a written contract?
Yes. We offer it at booking, once an agreement is made on the pricing of your event.
2.) Will you be the DJ at our wedding? And what is your style?
Generally, yes… If I am available and book your event, I will be the DJ at your wedding or event. However, if I am unavailable, I will let you know from the beginning and inform you of who I would recommend from our team of deejays for your event.
3.) May we meet with you in person before we sign a contract?
Absolutely! Just know that with technology the way it is today, A LOT of things can be handled via e-mail or online (saving everyone time in this process). I will be right there with you every step of the way.
4.) How long will you hold our date for us?
I will hold your date indefinitely if you have put a deposit down. If you are simply getting information from us for your event as you plan it, I will just “pencil” you in for the date you’re requesting, but keep in mind……..the date is not “LOCKED IN” until we receive the deposit.
5.) Do you work exclusively for eNeRGy Productions?
YES! We are a veteran-owned and operated small business. We have other DJ’s that work for us as well that have been trained by myself. We only hire those that can represent the company in a good standing.
6.) How long have you been a DJ?
I have been a Deejay for close to 15yrs.
7.) How many weddings have you done / do you do each year?
On average, we do approximately 40 weddings a year.
8.) How many other types of events do you do per year?
On average, we do approximately 100 to 150 events per year.
9.) Do you deejay for more than one event in a day?
Very rarely will I book two events on one day. I have before, but never on days where I will be DJing a wedding.
10.) What makes you different from your competitors?
If you’ve read our mission statement, we hold true to that very dearly. We take a lot of pride in our work to be able to provide our customers with great service. Our customer service and personal (yet professional) interaction with you will set us apart from others. We are polite, professional, friendly and most importantly….fair.
11.) Have you played at our reception site before?
That’s a great question, and chances are that I have (in my 15yrs). If by chance I haven’t, I will definitely do my homework on your venue to MAKE SURE I’m bringing the proper equipment to get the job done. I’m sure you know, every venue presents different challenges (i.e. different room sizes, configurations, acoustics, even antiquated electrical outlets that need to be grounded manually). Surely we will ask plenty of questions from you and the venue site contact as well with hopes of maybe acquiring a floor plan of the site.
12.) Do you act as the “emcee” and make all of the announcements?
Yes. I can do that if you like. I normally will do that with wedding parties that don’t have a coordinator…or if the wedding party simply asks me to.
13.) How would you define your “style” when making announcements?
My style will be based off of what we discuss you want it to be. You are the boss and what you say goes. I can be as energetic as you want me to be, or as laid back as you want me to be. All announcements are done professionally, with a fun twist to them. My style will definitely engage your guests and will keep order throughout the day so everyone knows what to do and when to do it.
14.) What do you do to motivate the crowd if nobody is dancing?
We prefer to use careful song selection to ensure dance floor success. Such as line dances, or songs with great dance rhythm to get people feeling good and wanting to dance.
15.) What if something happens to you and you can’t make it to the wedding?
We do not cancel, rain or shine and we will arrive for better or worse in sickness or health. If there is an incident where the booked DJ can’t make it, then we will contact you immediately and assign one of our other qualified DJs to deejay your event
16.) Will we meet again before the wedding?
Only if we really need to. We will have pretty much handled everything we needed to handle when / IF we met during your initial booking meeting.
17.) Can we visit you at any of your other gigs?
Absolutely, as long as it’s a public event. I normally post my where-a-bouts for the weekends on my Facebook page at:
18.) May we speak to your references?
Absolutely! If you would like references just let us know.
19.) How do you keep your music collection up-to-date?
We subscribe to a music pool that pushes music directly to our system on a daily basis. We also provide on own MiFi so that we may download songs right on the spot (if by chance we don’t already have it).
20.) How involved can we be in selecting music for our event?
VERY MUCH INVOLVED. I personally think that the customer knows his/her guests the best and know what they will like. So the more input from you, the better it will be for us. However, we are there to help make sure everyone has a good times, so we may select music that suits everyone, to ENSURE everyone has a great time. But we always try to keep it within the bounds set by the party host/organizer.
21.) When do we need to submit our music requests and event details?
We ask that you submit your music and event details as soon as you have the “complete” information. Or, no later than 3 weeks away from the event date. This will ensure that we are able to get everything together that we need to.
22.) Do you take requests from our guests?
Absolutely….if you say it’s okay to. Remember, you are the boss and whatever you say goes.
23.) Can we submit a “Do Not Play” list?
Absolutely! We tailor your event to your wants, needs, and musical taste!
24.) When do you arrive to set up for our wedding/event?
Our standard time to arrive for any event is two (2) hours before. Sometimes we will adjust that sooner or later depending on the event and/or the venue requirements or constraints.
25.) What will you wear to our wedding?
It is our custom to dress “professionally” to DJ weddings (i.e. Tux’s / Suits), but it is your call. You tell us how you would like for us to dress. Obviously every event / wedding is different, so we cater to our customer’s request and the theme of the event / wedding.
26.) What will you wear when you set up and break down your equipment?
Because we will be lifting and moving heavy equipment, we do not want to ruin what we are wearing for your event. So, we prefer to wear company t-shirts and jeans – then change into more formal wear as the event time nears.
27.) Do you require a deposit / If so, how much of a deposit is required to secure our date?
Yes, we do require a deposit. The deposit required is 50% of the total cost of your wedding / event. If more time is needed (to provide the deposit at booking), please let me know so that something can be worked out.
28.) What is included in the cost of my event?
Included in our pricing is: (SEE WEDDING RATES PAGE). If you have concerns about something that may or may not be included….you are more than welcome to just ask us!
29.) How much would you charge for overtime?
We are happy to extend our services during your event. This can be done after booking or as late as the day of the event while we are playing. We charge a hundred dollars an hour for extended time.
30.) What do you require from us?
We require a deposit to lock in your event date, good communication with us during the planning phase leading up to your event, all documents with your bridal information (i.e. special songs, bridal party names, special announcements) and we require that you take a deep breath, relax and enjoy your event / wedding day.
31.) Do you require a meal?
No, we do not require a meal – but one is always appreciated. We will typically not eat it until the timing is right. Typically that would be after everyone else has been served and eating as well.
32.) Are you insured?
Yes. We carry full liability insurance.
33.) Do you take any breaks?
No, but no one knows when “duty” calls…..so we normally only take a QUICK bathroom break. We time it with a longer song selection or I would just have the DJ Assistant monitor the boards during the break.
34.) What is your policy on alcohol or smoking during the wedding?
We are professional in the executions of our duties as a DJ. We will not partake in any alcoholic beverages nor will we be taking a smoke break AT ALL.
35.) What kind of equipment do you use?
We do not go cheap when it comes to equipment. We use only the top of the line equipment to ensure great sound, quality and reliability for our customers.
36.) Do you bring backup equipment with you to the wedding?
Yes. We not only bring extra equipment – but we have plenty of experience DJing, so we can handle almost any equipment failure that would arise.
37.) Do you have a wireless microphone?
Yes, we offer two hand-held wireless microphones for toasts, speeches, or any other guest speakers at your event. If you should need it during your ceremony, please let us know in advance.
38.) Do you have a “light show”?
Yes. We have an AMAZING light show. We pride ourselves on our light show packages. However, we know that everyone has different tastes in lighting, so this will be discussed during the initial meeting to gage your interest in what kind of lighting you require / want. We recommend against using lighting outside during the day because the lights will not achieve the same effect as a night show outside. We also offer "up-lighting" as well.
39.) Do you set up a sign or banner with your equipment?
No, we do not think that would present a very professional look. If you hired us to do your wedding / event, then we are all yours….NO ADVERTISING will be taking place.
40.) We are planning a wedding and need a music selection that appeals to people of all ages. Can you do that?
Absolutely! We would be more than happy to. We have over 188,000 songs from every genre known to man. Plus we have personal MiFi’s to be able to download music right on the spot in case we don’t already have it. Our musical selctions go as far back as the 1940’s all the way up to present day. It is my job to get people to dance and/or relax to some great tunes - and since I love all kinds of music, I can provide music for any kind of event (even if it is just background music).
41.) What kinds of events do you do?
I have done all types of events and parties, from small backyard BBQs, corporate parties, sweet 16’s, pool parties, to large events at venues like the New Year’s Eve Gala in Washington, DC.
42.) What do we need to provide you the day of the event?
The only thing we ask that you provide us is:
An electrical outlet & a table (and on some occasions, we will bring our own table).
43.) What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept: cash / check / & PayPal. The information on where to send your payment to will be located at the bottom of your contract.
