Now That's A Great Question...

We know that you are making a lot of big decisions right now and the music part of your reception ranks right up near the top of important decisions to make. Hiring your DJ requires more than just picking someone out of the phone book or looking for just the cheapest deal. Below are the most frequently asked questions that we are asked when someone is considering hiring Now That's a DJ.

Does your DJ company use professional equipment?
All of our equipment is professional sound equipment. We also carry backup equipment in case of a mechanical breakdown.
Do you require a retainer and a contract?
Yes. We require a $150 retainer for all events, which is due when you return the signed contract to us. Your event date is not guaranteed until we receive the contract and retainer. The balance is due on or before the day of your event. Your date will be held in reserve for one month to give you time to review our services. Check our calendar to see if your date is available.
Do you take requests?
Yes and no. We ask you ahead of time if you would like us to take requests from your guests. We also ask you if there is any specific music that you don't want to hear. When a guest asks for a request, we take into consideration the nature of the song and we check your lists. If the song is questionable or on your "do not play" list, we politely suggest another selection.
Is my retainer refundable?
No. Your retainer is non-refundable to protect us from lost bookings due to us scheduling your event. 
How do your DJs dress for the events?
Our DJs will wear formal attire to all events. In some cases when there are theme parties or backyard parties, we will either wear business casual or dress in the same theme as your guests.

Do you have a large music selection?
We carry a large variety of titles to ensure that we have the right songs on hand for your event. If there is a specific song that you want played and we don't have it on hand, we will be glad to purchase it for you at no additional cost to you.
Do your DJs drink alcohol or smoke at the events?
Our DJs are professionals and do not drink or smoke at your party,
nor do they use foul language or say off-color jokes.
Will you meet with us prior to our event?
Absolutely. We prefer to meet with each client prior to the event. By meeting with you, it helps us get to know you and exactly what you expect from us. We provide you with special event sheets that will help guide you through the event and assist in making sure that your event is a big success.
Will your DJs work with the photographer and caterer?
Yes. We will be your event coordinators throughout your entire evening. Our goal is to make sure that you have a hassle-free reception. We will coordinate the cake cutting, first dances, your arrival, and any other function that ensures that your event runs smoothly.
Can we come see your DJs at work?
Unfortunately we can't allow prospective clients to come see us perform at a private event (would you want uninvited guests to show up at your reception?). However, we sometimes perform at public dances and you are more than welcome to see us there.
Is your company insured?
Yes. Now That's a DJ! is fully insured and has liability insurance up to $1 million. Often venues will require us to carry this level of insurance to protect their guests and interests. We supply the appropriate documentation if asked.
Should I tip the DJ?
It is entirely up to you. If you feel that your DJ did an outstanding job at your wedding reception, we gladly accept your gift.
What time does the DJ arrive to set up?
We always arrive about an hour before your event time starts. This gives us plenty of time to get the equipment set up properly and run sound tests.
