How many hours of coverage are usually included for a wedding.
It depends on the package you choose, the average reception is between 4-6 hours.
Do you have a specific routine or order of events that they recommend for the reception?
Yes we do, but we can customize each of the events as needed to cover all events.
When do I have access to planning forms?
- Once you reserve the date with us, we will activate your online planning forms where you and your fiancé will be able to go online and fill out your “Event Timeline”, “Reception and/or Ceremony Planning Forms” and best of all your “Online Music Request Lists” where you can add songs to your “Must Play”, “Play If Possible”, and “Do Not Play” lists.
- Once we have these forms filled out we will meet with you around the 30 day mark to go over all of the details in the forms.
- We also use the forms so we can make all of the announcements throughout the night and coordinate with your other vendors so you can sit back relax and enjoy the night!
Can I give you a play list and a do not play list?
Yes, Please see above quote
Have you ever worked at my wedding location before?
What is your setup like?
We’ve spared no expense to outfit each of our systems with the finest in commercial audio. Depending on the number of guests you expect, we can bring a compact system for fifty, or enough power to blow away a thousand.
What about lights?
At your request, we provide a sophisticated lighting system to make your dance floor contemporary and inviting, all at no extra cost. From the traditional mirror ball to the ‘no-holds-barred’ avengers and strobes, just ask.
What are your DJs like?
Our DJs are professional, experienced, approachable, and out for fun. We have a knack for keeping the dance floor full without having to resort to props or jumping around on tables. Every performance is done with style and class, setting the stage for a great time that your guests will fondly remember. We try to personalize every show to your taste. You can also specify your DJ’s attire, from a formal tuxedo to something more casual. Whether you want the entertainment to be conservative or if you want an all-out bash, we’ll give you the appropriate personality and adapt to your style.
Is there an overtime charge?
Will the DJ help keep the event moving along?
Sure. We’ll MC the show, do all the introductions and many any announcements you’d like. We try to communicate with each client as much as possible before the event so that everyone knows what to expect and there are no surprises or disappointments.
Will you personally be the DJ for our event?
We do our staff assignment 30 days before your event, at which time, you will meet with your assigned DJ.
Who will be our DJ?
Like other large DJ services, the individual DJ is not scheduled until the month of the event. It’s hard to guarantee a specific person months in advance because of schedule conflicts, vacations, or emergencies. We’ll be the first to admit that the DJ can make or break an event. That’s why we are so serious about the hiring and training of all our workers. We make sure that they are the highest paid people in the industry (but we only send one to each show to keep your cost low.) Their happiness with the job reflects the high quality of work that they do. We don’t consider anyone at JAMMIN’ DJs as employees, only as trusted friends. Each of them individually represent our service as a whole when we send them out on the road.
So then, what’s so great about a big DJ service compared to someone who just owns one system and does the show himself/herself?
A single owner/operator can seem more personal and can probably give you a better price. JAMMIN’ DJs is what we do full-time, all day, every day. It’s our career, not just a hobby run out of a basement. We all pool our talents and learn from each other. We also have backup equipment and keep on DJ/manager standing by so that your event won’t suffer if a problem arises. All of our vans are reliable and well maintained. So just ask yourself if your peace of mind is worth the extra cost.
Can we come see you at a show?
We do many public shows each week at local bars and you’re always welcome to stop by and say hi. We try to discourage people from showing up at private formal events because we’re sure that our clients would expect the basic courtesy of not turning their party into our business showroom.
What’s the advantages of hiring a DJ over a band?
We have a much larger selection of music, we don’t take breaks, and we’re only a fraction of the cost of a live band.
Do you have Karaoke?
For a small additional expense, you can have the chance to become a star for a day. We let you choose from thousands of popular songs and provide the microphones, color monitors, sound system and lights.
How far will you travel?
We’ve done shows all over the country and even Canada. It might cost you a little more for mileage and accommodations, but give us a try because we’ll go just about anywhere.
