FAQs: Most Commonly Asked Questions about our DJ Services and Disk Jockey in San Diego
1. How much do you charge?
There are a few factors involved with this question: – What type of event is it? Wedding? Coporate event? Birthday? Where is the event located? How many people will be in attendance? What equipment is necessary?
Generally Mobil DJ services start at $99 per hour.
2. Do you have experience?
This may be the most important question one can ask of a any DJ and not just wedding DJ. For your big event, you want a well experienced professional DJ to be in charge of the entertainment; the DJ can make or break your party/event. And the answer is yes, we have over 10 years of experience in the corporate/private party DJ business.
3. Should we be hiring a band or a DJ?
There are big differences between a band and DJ. Bands are usually faily expensive ($1,500+), play a fairly limited genre of music, have naturally loud volume, and usually don’t provide a professional MC who will coordinate and run your event. Professional DJs like us will be able to play a wide variety of music for all age groups and demographics and also be your MC and coordinator.
4. Is there any difference between a Special Event DJ and a Club DJ?
Special and corporate events are much more challenging than a nightclub event with the wide variety of music required to satisfy all demographics and taste preferences. Also, a Special/Corporate Event DJ must be able to coordinate events and handle all announcements, as well as be able to work with other event professionals (catering directors, photographers, etc.).
5. Can we customize our music play list?
Of course you can. We make sure to get in all of your requests at your event. We do require that a completed song list be submitted a week in advance so that all music is prepared for the event.
6. What type of equipment do you use?
We use name brand equipment to guarantee quality sound and reliability. Some of the brands we use include: Mackie, JBL, Technics, Shure and American DJ.
7. Will you bring backup equipment to my event?
When a DJ brings high quality equipment to your event, back ups won’t be necessary. If a DJ is selling you on bringing back ups, maybe you should question their equipment. In any case, back ups will be available for extreme cases of equipment failure.
8. How far in advance should I hire the DJ?
It depends on the type of event you are planning; for example a wedding, many people book their wedding vendors a year in advance. This provides a good lead time on guaranteeing your vendor’s availability for the date you want, especially during peak wedding season. Off peak season, 6 months is a good lead time. But with any event, you would still want to book as far in advance as possible.
9. What happens if your DJ is a no show?
This scenario will not happen. Lines of communication with our DJs are wide open. In the case of a tragedy, which does happen, we will have a back up DJ available who will be prepped and up to speed on your event.
10. Will you MC and coordinate all of our events?
The DJ naturally is the MC of the event, unless otherwise specified. In the event that you do not have an event coordinator, our DJs jump into that position and keep the event flow as close to the time line as possible. If you do have a coordinator, our DJs work side by side with them.
