We are currently taking bookings up to 2 years ahead in some cases. We highly recommend anyone to book at least one year in advance for a saturday night event. Please contact us today so we can meet and discuss details of your event. We ask with all our bookings that you provide a non-refundable deposit of $100 to confirm and hold the date in question. We accept cash, credit cards, debit cards, e-transfers and cheques. Please note credit cards and debit cards will incur an additional fee of $25 to contribute to the processing fees I incur.
As of 2014, all bookings must be paid in full one week prior to the event date. Cash is the only form of payment accepted on the night of the event and must be paid at the start to avoid any delay in services.
Please see our FAQs below if you have any questions. If you have been in contact with us, please feel free to take a look at our music binder for song choices, or download and fill out our wedding questionaire form, or event questionaire form. This gives us all the information we need to ensure your event runs smoothely. You will also find feedback forms, feedback results and other forms that may be of interest on our forms page.

Will you play songs through my/my guests iPods?
Unfortunately, we can’t due to music licensing laws. However, we have over 100,000 songs and we can make sure we have that certain song prior to the event if requested. (See DJ Questionnaire)
Will you announce requests?
Yes, if it requested to do so.
Will you MC?
Yes we can. However, in our experience, MCs are always better when it’s someone that knows the bride and/or groom or even family members.
Will you play musical/party games if requested
We can indeed! Like MCs, this is noramlly best played by your MCs, however if you give clear instructions for the games you wish to play then we can do it for you.

We ask that you please provide us a meal for bookings that last longer than 4 hours.
Can you provide a projector service for a slide show or speech?
Yes, we have a projector and 100″ screen that is great for any event. All we need from you is the material (CD/DVD/USB Flash disk that will play with no additional software). Additional charges apply for this service.
What happens if your equipment fails?
Our equipment is tested and serviced weekly, but should anything fail, we do have backups for all of our equipment.
Do you have microphones for our MC to use?
Yes, we have high-powered wireless mics and backup wired mics.
When will you set up for my event?
Typically we set up 1 hour before people are due to arrive, but if it is local we may set up the night before or early in the morning the day of, depending on venue restrictions.
What will you wear to my event?
We are always presentable and will dress accordingly. You will see us in shirts and ties for most formal events, and polo shirts for less formal events.
How much is the depost?
We ask for a $100 non-refundable deposit. This holds your date and will be applied towards your balance.
Why do you need a deposit?
We always ask for a deposit to hold the date so we don’t over book. Being a small business we presently have three setups and three DJs allowing us to do up to (3) events on any given day/night. Generally we don’t book more than two in case of sickness.
How and when do we pay you?
We accept visa, mastercard, debit, cheque, e-transfer and cash prior to the event. The only form of payment accepted on the night of the event is cash. The balance will need to be paid in full by the start of the event to avoid delay.
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes, in the extremely unlikely situation where would need it, we are fully covered.
What happens if you are ill?
In the unlikely instance where one of the DJs are ill, we have 2 other DJs, all of which are fully capable of performing at your function. Traditionally, I travel with one assistant.
Do you charge setup and travel costs?
Unlike other DJ companies, our prices take into consideration our setup and travel costs, so there are no suprise charges at the end of the night. The only exception to this is if we are working outside of our local area – this would be discussed at our meeting.
Can you play longer if need be?
All of our DJ packages cover a minimum of 4hrs. We offer additional hours and services past this time. If on the night you want to add additional time, we are often able to accommodate at an increased charge.
What if we are behind/ahead of schedule?
Our prices are based on a time agreed prior to the event. We understand events aren’t always on time, and we are happy to play before/past the scheduled time if we are able to. Of course, additional charges will apply.
