FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
 

Q. Do you do announcements and introductions and would you be able to be our Master of Ceremonies for us?
A. The best option for most weddings is to find someone you know who will do a good job and secondly is willing to do that role which can be stressful. If no one fits the bill then don't stress we have it covered, I offer an MC service.
The MC service is an optional extra and a small charge is applicable. 
 
Q. How much do you charge?
A. Although not your only concern I'm sure. I know everybody has to work to some sort of budget. I am confident that I can offer you the best value in terms of dollars and service. 
Cost is largely dependent on your requirements. Factors that effect cost are time required, day of the week, and location. I will offer you good incentives and discounted rates if I am not booked for a particular day/date. For availability and a more accurate quote please contact me. 
Some DJ's use poor equipment, others hire out inexperienced DJ's, and some charge excessively. For clients thinking about using an ipod, remember an ipod is just a gadget like a digital camera. A good DJ can get the party started and keep it going.
 


Q. Do you play the songs we want ... do you have music lists? 

A. Yes 
. I will play your songs that you request, and I won't play the songs you have listed that you don't want to hear. You can set out your requests in a music planner that I provide, and also request songs on the day. I carry thousands of popular songs. 
I do provide music lists. I don't list every song we carry but give you selections of the best and most popular choices. Example. Genres: Kiwi/ Rock'n'Roll /Rock/Disco/Country/Jazz/60's/70's/80's/90's 2000/ Recent and also lists of Special songs: Entrance/First Dance/ Father Daughter/Throwing Bouquet. 
Lists are sent with music planner upon booking.

Q. Do you provide lighting and a microphone for speeches?
A. Yes 
I am always updating with recently purchasing a new laser and LED effect. I buy professional brands from reputable dealers. 
I do provide a professional grade wireless microphone for your speeches. 
I provide professional equipment for your function which makes the difference.

Q. Can we discuss our wedding day and ask you questions .. and meet with you?
A. Yes 
 I will work in with you and your plans. I can offer advice if wanted, but I won't try and control your day, 
An introductory meeting can be arranged without obligation to booking. With clients that have booked I recommend a meeting 1-2 weeks before the wedding day to discuss and go over final details. 
You will not have to wait days for replies to your questions. I respond quickly to answer emails and questions. I will also contact you 3-4 days before your function date to check that all the details are still correct. 
All payments are receipted and invoiced for your records and mine. 

Q. Will you be our DJ?
A. Yes! 
I do not hire out other DJ's due to unreliability and client disappointment.

Q. Have you worked at our venue before. 
A. I have DJ'd at many venues around Auckland and Franklin. I am an experienced DJ so know how to cope with different venues. 
A small selection of excellent recommended wedding venues I have DJ'd at: Okahu, Five Knots, Bracu, 
Markovina,Footbridge Lodge, Castaways, Sorrento, Bridgewater Estate, Waipuna Lodge, The Tasting Shed, The Wharf, Carringtons, Formosa Resort, Hyatt Regency, Ellerslie Convention Centre, Alexander Park, Aotea Centre, Mantells, Orakei Bay, Duders, McHughes, Kumeu Valley Estate, Gracehill Vineyard,  Rydges Hotel, Soljans Estate, Allely Estate, Settlers Manor.  I also sometimes DJ outside of Auckland. 


Q. How will you and your equipment look at our wedding?
A.  
I believe when you go to the expense of hiring an elegant venue it should not be spoilt by huge ugly speakers and lighting rigs. I place equipment discreetly. I wear smart black shoes, trousers and a collared shirt. I have a suit if the occasion demands. 
I have seen DJ's show up in casual jeans, grubby shirt, or sneakers... not just the cheap ones. 
Don't let the DJ and his equipment ruin the look of your day when you have invested so much in it.
