How to find competent entertainment

The top ten list of questions to ask

  1. Am I guaranteed a DJ on the day of our event?
    A written agreement (contract) with your specific terms protects you from
    unscrupulous operators.

  2. How much experience do you have?
    Experience brings knowledge of common problems and situations. Be sure your DJ has experience with your type of event. Ask for referrals.

  3. May we contact your references?
    References are a major part of the entertainment business, as they are of any legitimate service. Good references build confidence that your event is in good hands.

  4. Do you belong to any professional associations or trade groups?
    A serious business shows a willingness to learn, network, and share ideas. Respect for the craft and you, the customer, is shown by membership in a professional trade association.

  5. Will you allow requests?
    This is your event, and your special requests should be welcome. If a song seems inappropriate to the occasion, a good DJ service will advise, explaining the reason(s) and request, or suggest, an alternative.

  6. How early will you be there to set up?
    An average of 60-90 minutes should be allowed for set up and sound check.
    Normally, there is no additional charge for this, and it should be part of the entire service.

  7. How will the DJ be dressed?
    Proper attire reflects a positive image to your guests. The DJ should be dressed as
    good or better than your guests. However, it is up to you to specify the type of attire.

  8. Are you insured?
    Insurance is a part of any legitimate business. Liability and casualty policies protect yourself, your guests, and the DJ company.

  9. Do you use professional gear (equipment)?
    Using professional sound and lighting equipment helps insure a reliable service and
    quality presentation. (See ours here)

  10. Will you provide an emergency back-up system at our event?
    Weddings, Mitzvahs, birthdays, and special events are often a once in a lifetime opportunity. A system of back-up components protects your investment.
