We play a wide variety of music at our events. We usually start out with Old Time Rock & Roll (early), moving through to various 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's, Country, East Coast and today's Hits and Top 40. Every Dance is different, and sometimes has a wide range of guests, and various ages, bearing in mind that diverse ages and crowds, have a variety of tastes in Music, that are not always the same. We can also adapt to any theme or specialty Dance (Salsa/Merengue, Lebanese, Reunions, Eras, etc.) and have done many in the past. Playing the crowd is key to keeping folks dancing. With the DJ's knowledge and also with your input, we can keep the floor hopping all night. The Client can supply special request songs, playlists, and "do not play" songs/styles if they wish. When booking a Wedding, the one thing that we do require, is for the Client to select their First Waltz choices (Bride & Groom, Bride & Father, Groom & Mother, Wedding Party, etc.) for all those that apply to what the Client wishes to incorporate into their opening Waltzes. If doing the Bouquet Toss and Garter Toss/Retrieval, the Client can also select songs for those, or leave it up to the DJ to select the most popular. I always touch base with Clients one to two weeks prior to the Wedding or Dance date, to firm up details and song selections.
The further ahead that you can book, the better. We are normally taking wedding bookings 6 to 12 months ahead. We also take lots of bookings sooner than this and on shorter notice, but if you want your date booked, especially for weddings, please contact us right away, in order to make sure your date is available.
We can play at the Reception, for an additional fee. This would be over an above the normal cost of your dance and you would also be responsible to provide a Meal for the DJ, as he would be there extended time and during normal Dinner hour. Contact us for pricing on this very popular option.
We do require a Deposit of $100.00 to reserve your booking date. Deposits can be paid via Cash, Cheque, Money Order or Interac Email Money Transfer. Interac Email Money Transfer is safest and most secure method of payment, for the Deposit, and as of the last few years, is the easiest and most efficient way of paying this. "Deposits are Non-Refundable".
In Charlottetown area we usually set up in the early to mid afternoon, depending on the Venue. Sometimes, based on space, there are Venues that can't accommodate early setups, until the Reception is over. Please check this out with your Venue, to confirm if there will be ample space for the DJ to setup early. If your Venue is outside of the City area, we will arrive one hour before your dance is to begin, unless previous arrangements have been made. Setup times take 20 to 25 minutes on average. We can arrange an early setup outside of town, but there would be an extra charge for travel and the DJ's time.
Yes you can. We can setup a P.A. system for your ceremony and/or reception for an extra rental fee. The system would be setup by us and you can use if for sound. If you request that a DJ be there to man the sound system through the ceremony/reception, there would be a combined fee for the system rental and DJ's time. For an "indoor ceremony", you may not need a DJ to man the sound, but for "outdoor ceremonies", a DJ is recommended. Wind and other outdoor noises can play havoc with sound, and a DJ should be there to adjust volumes accordingly.
Our prices are for a 4 hour dance. Normally, dances are chosen to be 8pm-12am, 8:30pm-12:30am, 9pm-1am and such. We will play later, and there is an extra fee per hour for that if chosen. I do recommend for all clients to check with the venue to see what time their "last call" (Bar) is and what time the music has to be shut down by. Many hotels that have guests rooming in the area of the dance have to be totally finished by 12:30am or 1:00am and nothing past that. Other venues can go later without affecting anything (such as Crowbush, who will allow until 2:00am). I stress that you confirm those times with your hotel or venue before deciding on a time for your dance, so there are no suprises.
We are "not" Club DJ's. We specialize in Weddings and other Events. Some Clients in the past, have not given us proper direction as to what types of music they are looking for, and when we arrive, are expecting that we have various Club type songs, Remixes, Explicit Lyrics, House music, and so on. We "must" be advised beforehand, if you are looking for any types of music, outside of the "norm", that you would hear at a Wedding or average Event.
