  QUESTIONS TO ASK A DJ

   Are you insured? Can you supply me with proof of liability?

 

Many responsible business owners carry liability insurance to protect their business and the customer. Ask for proof of liability insurance. Companies  receive a Certificate of Liability.

   Are you willing to play requests and discuss music ahead of time?

 

A versatile Disc Jockey is willing to listen to your suggestions, give you
Feedback and play from your desired song list. A professional Disc Jockey will also accept the fact that you may not want certain songs played. A professional Disc Jockey cannot know everything about your Musical preferences and entertainment needs, without communication

   Do you use professional Equipment?

 

Ask whether you’re prospective Disc Jockey works with professional audio equipment. If you are not sure, ask for their equipment list and check with a local dealer to verify they are using professional grade sound equipment. Remember that professional equipment does not guarantee an entertainer’s talent or service level, but is simply a tool for building an exceptional event.

   Do you provide backup equipment at my event?

 

Although equipment failure is rare, do you really want your special occasion ruined because your Disc Jockey did not come prepared? It is also important to know if your Disc Jockey has a backup plan in case of illness or an accident. Booking a reliable Disc Jockey is a very important decision for the success of your party.

   Does the Disc Jockey know the proper etiquette for your type of party?

 

A professional Disc Jockey will assist you with the planning of your special day. Most professional entertainers will co-ordinate, emcee and provide the music that you requested. Ask if they have experience at your type of event.

  How much time do you allow for set-up?

 

Punctuality is necessity. Most Disc Jockeys arrive at least one hour prior to the start time you have given them.

  Do you provide a written contract?

 

It is extremely important to have your booking confirmed in writing. Ask for
a written agreement, especially if you are paying a deposit.

  Will you be suitably dressed for our occasion?

 

Specify the type of apparel that your Disc Jockey is expected to wear to your occasion. Formal attire, jacket and shirt, are the most popular forms of attire. if you are having a “Themed” event, make sure your entertainer is informed.

  How much do you charge?

 

Most reputable DJ Companies charge more than a part-timer who is looking to make a few extra euros. Don’t look strictly at how much they charge, look at what you receive. Question a company that is very low in cost, if they don’t think they are worth it, you shouldn’t either. There is a good chance that you are putting the success of your event in jeopardy because of a few euros. Be sure you understand their basic fee level, overtime rates, and due dates for deposits and balances.

  Do you feel comfortable with them?

 

It really comes down to a matter of trust. Once you feel you have found an established Disc Jockey Company in your price range with the services you like, make your final selection based on personality. Do you like the person you are dealing with? Find out who is accountable if problems occur. Do they speak with knowledge, do they have the desire to create a successful event?
