“FAQ: What’s Included in the Cost of Your Event Entertainment Services?”

As dedicated professionals, our goal is to make your event planning journey stress-free and enjoyable. We understand the challenges of organizing an event, so we’ve crafted user-friendly forms to gather all the necessary information for your successful event. 

Throughout the planning process, we’re here to offer advice and support, ready to address any questions or concerns via phone or email.

Once we have all the details, we’ll assign you an event planner to help you select your preferred music and gather additional relevant information. Customized playlists, tailored to your preferences, will ensure you and your guests have the best experience possible.

On your event day, we’ll arrive 60-90 minutes in advance to set up our equipment. Punctuality and reliability are paramount, and we take pride in being prompt and efficient. The duration specified in your contract, including our tear-down time (15-30 minutes), is what you pay for—no hidden fees. Your contract’s total amount is precisely what you’ll spend.

Transparency and exceptional service are core to our values. We’re committed to the success of your event and will ensure that you and your guests have a wonderful time. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or want to explore our services further. We’re here to help you create an event full of fun and memories.

How much is required to secure our date?

A 50% retainer is required, with the remaining balance due two weeks before your event date. We are generally open and accommodating if you wish to discuss an alternative payment schedule.

Please note that the retainer is non-refundable.

How do I hire a DJ?

It would be best if you asked questions. Consult with the DJ to see if there is a fit. Check their years of experience and the type of equipment they use. Ask if they have a backup. When you hire SpectrumSound.com DJ, you get a seasoned veteran who can successfully run your event Entertainment Services or wedding.

Entertainment Style

An essential factor in choosing your DJ is their style. Is it low-key or highly interactive? SpectrumSound.com can do both! If it is a wedding, we know the Bride & Groom are the stars, not us. So, we will not stand on tables or scream at our guests on the microphone. 

We will not wear silly wigs or ask your guests to dress like the ‘Village People.’ Instead, we will put on a ‘cheese-free’ show, keeping the spotlight on the Bride & Groom, great music, and fun!

Corporate and other types of events sometimes require more interaction. If that is the case, just let us know. We will happily interact with your guests and have fun, but always in good taste. 

We are skilled with introductions and formalities, so it would be our pleasure to take care of it for you if anything needs to be announced. SpectrumSound.com is always at your service!

Have you played at our venue?

Of course, this depends on the site. If it is in the area, we played there at some point. We welcome the opportunity to visit the venue with you.

What do you require from my event site?

We need at least one 6-foot banquet table with linens and adequate power (120-volt, a 15-amp circuit on a grounded outlet) within twenty-five feet of where the DJ will be set up.

Do you function as the emcee and make all the announcements?

We will make every announcement you want us to, which is usually the norm. However, occasionally, a client wants someone special in their lives to make a statement, and we always oblige them.

How would you define your style when making announcements?

Confident and clear. We use our regular voice and do not “cheese it up” insincerity. While we can use a booming radio baritone, most people can see right through that, creating distrust between the guests and ourselves.

Do you have a wireless microphone?

Yes, we have a Shure wireless mic with a range of about fifty yards, “half a football field” in most cases. We prefer to limit the microphone to those you told us we would need (toasts or other announcements). We do NOT share the mic with anyone wanting to drink a few and address the guests. Those moments tend to slow the momentum down, or worse, can be awkward and embarrassing.

Do you take any breaks?

Not at all. Unlike a band, you get continuous Entertainment from a DJ.

Will you bring an assistant?

Short answer? Rarely. Unless you plan a highly interactive, “New York-style” wedding that needs a sole emcee/party motivator to dance with your guests (something we rarely offer), deejaying a wedding is a one-person job. 

DJs who always bring an assistant do so because they do not want to carry the equipment, want someone to fetch them drinks, or break down and get out of there faster at the night’s end. We do not believe that is something for which you need to pay.

Can we visit you at a performance?

The only performances you can visit me at are the occasional public performances for charities (and we always encourage potential clients to do that). We announce all public events on The Spectrum Sound’s Facebook page and this website. 

However, as most of our performances are private weddings, we respect our clients’ privacy and do not let potential customers visit their parties. 

However, our references, online reviews, and the information we provide you in our initial meeting will speak volumes about our experience, style, and professionalism. Each performance is designed to fit each client’s wishes, so what you hear at one party may not be what you are looking for in yours, which may cloud your judgment on our abilities.

What will you wear to our wedding?

The attire for 90% of our weddings consists of a black suit. During summertime outdoor events, we often swap the coat for a vest. We opt for a suit, shirt, and tie for all other occasions. We’re comfortable donning shorts if your event is a backyard pool party. 

We aim to dress in a manner that aligns with your guests or slightly surpasses, ensuring we are never underdressed.

What will you wear when you set up and break down your equipment?

It honestly depends on the weather and the time of year. For example, if you are having an outdoor event in July, we will arrive wearing shorts and an oversized shirt, as setting up equipment in 90-degree heat can get a guy a bit sweaty. However, some of your guests may see us; we will have changed into our formal wear when most guests arrive.

When do you arrive to set up our event?

We typically come between 60 and 90 minutes before the start of an event if we are familiar with the venue and two hours if this is our first time to avoid any setbacks. We always allow more time for Pics, photo booth setup, and Event Lighting.

Will we meet again before the event?

If you need to meet for whatever reason before your wedding, it can be arranged, but usually, there is only a need if we need to view the venue one more time before the big day. After the initial meeting, most correspondence is exchanged via email, telephone, text, or even Facebook if you want to friend me there!

Do you offer live ceremony musicians?

Again, we believe in focusing on the service we can provide. Some music agencies will “up-sell” live musicians, serving as a “middleman” and taking a cut of the proceeds, but we would prefer to refer you directly to the players. Please ask for our recommendations — we have worked with about everyone!

How involved can we be in selecting music for our event?

We believe that passionate music enthusiasts deserve an unforgettable soundtrack on their wedding day, and we encourage you to play an active role in crafting it! Many of our clients hold music in high regard and have specific preferences. 

If you’re a true music fan, you likely recall the first single you bought as a teenager. At Spectrum Sound, we share your enthusiasm for music, and if you wish to handpick every song, we’re more than happy to accommodate. 

You can select up to fifty pieces and provide a “Do Not Playlist” for songs you’d rather not hear. 

This usually gives us more than enough to work with. Our song choices are based on danceability, popularity, and your audience, ensuring a lively atmosphere. For example, we might choose the Cupid Shuffle over most Metallica songs, considering your preferences.

Most couples prefer to delve into their musical preferences and share specific requests with their DJ. We take pride in listening to our clients, respecting their input, and offering additional suggestions and guidance. With us, you’ll never hear songs you dislike or genres you’ve told us to avoid.

We are dedicated to meticulously programming every second of music at your wedding, working tirelessly to ensure a brilliant playlist. The role of a wedding DJ is pivotal in the success of the latter part of your celebration. 

A well-done reception will be a topic of discussion among friends for years, but a poorly executed one will be remembered for the wrong reasons. Finding a DJ who shares that passion is essential if you have a deep love for music. Our DJs immerse themselves in music daily – it’s their life, their passion, and their love.

Being a good DJ goes beyond just playing music; it requires expertise in curating the perfect playlist based on the do’s and don’ts you submit online. We invest significant time in preparation, creating edits for ceremony songs and first dances, and selecting the ideal mix or remix of popular tunes. This prep work is a crucial element of being a skilled mobile DJ, and the time we invest in building your playlists contributes to our continuous improvement as DJs.

How do we choose the songs for our wedding playlist?

Start thinking about your wedding music today – a recommendation that could save you from last-minute stress. Picture the anxiety of scrambling to choose your first dance song or recalling all your favorite tunes at the eleventh hour. 

Have you ever been asked about your music preferences, only to draw a complete blank and forget every piece you adore? I’m sure you can relate.

To avoid this potential pre-wedding chaos, I suggest creating a note on your phone titled ‘wedding playlist.’ Whenever you come across a song you love (or dislike), jot it down. When your DJ requests your music preferences, you’ll already have an impressive list at your fingertips. Talk about simplifying things!

Services - Spectrum Sound Customized Wedding Style and Music

If your wedding has a theme, consider incorporating it into your music selection. Choosing pieces that reflect the theme, whether it’s a Disney or Gatsby theme, can add a cool touch to your playlist.

You should separate the music in your playlist into five main categories:

  1. Traditional Dances – The traditional dances that you can have for your wedding include the first dance (for the couple), second dance (bride and father), third dance (groom and mother), and last dance (for the couple). The traditional dances may or may not work similarly for same-sex marriages, families with parents who have passed away, families with stepparents, etc. The most important thing is to pick any dances you would like for your wedding and let the DJ know who will be dancing. You can even choose not to have the first dance. It is entirely up to you!
  2. Your Favorite Music – You get to pick your favorite “must-have” songs you want to dance to on your wedding day. It can be fun to each build up your list of favorite songs. There will be times when only one of you is on the dance floor during the evening, so who cares if your fiancé loves the music you hate? A good DJ will mix and match your music choices to have an excellent time. The songs and styles of music that the couple like. Separate your favorite songs into two lists, and then the DJ will know what tunes to play for each of you when you step onto the dance floor.
  3. Songs For Your Guests – You will be sharing your wedding day with another 50-150 people, and to have a fantastic evening, you will want your guests to be up dancing with you all night long. Your DJ should be able to read the type of music your guests enjoy, but if you know any “must play” songs that will get your friends and family up dancing, you should add them to your playlist.
  4. Niche Music – If you are enthusiastic about a particular genre of music and would like your DJ to play a set of this music at some point during the evening, send a list of your favorite tracks if you think the DJ will not have the songs in their collection. Unless your DJ is an absolute expert in your chosen Niche Genre, you should send over some tracks to help them. Select the music you can dance to, and be realistic about how much you think should be played. Is it just you who likes this music, or do your friends and family like it? Perhaps list your top ten must-play songs and others if it goes well at night.
  5. Music That You Hate – Let the DJ know if there are songs they cannot play. You have a particular piece you do not want to hear at your wedding, or you hate an individual artist or type of music. Be quite thorough and honest. For example, if you hate ABBA, tell the DJ and ask them not to play any…even if a guest requests the night.

Can we submit a Do Not Playlist?

Definitely! But please limit it to songs that would utterly ruin your evening. 

For instance, if a new husband was married before, you want to avoid hearing the music that was his first dance with his first wife! But remember, just because you hate the Electric Slide does not necessarily mean your guests hate it too. 

So please have some flexibility in your Do Not Playlist.

I want to ensure all the music is “clean” at my event. Is that an issue?

Not at all! All our music is the clean, edited versions of the songs. However, just because a piece has offensive words removed from the theme does not mean the song’s meanings do not change. We always cite “My Humps” by the Black-Eyed Peas as an example. 

We have a clean version of the song, but that does not change the song’s message!

How is an entire evening’s playlist decided?

A three-hour evening consists of about 50 to 70 selections, while six hours equals 100 to 140. You should concentrate on picking just the music that is vital to you. We advise leaving the rest of the selections to your experienced DJ and guests’ requests at your Entertainment event.

How will I know that our guests will like our songs?

A successful evening combines our experienced DJs’ knowledge of what to play, your guest input, and special requests. We strive to ensure that you and your guests have a great time.

Is the Do not playlist important?

Yes! We do not want to upset or offend you or your guests.

Do you take requests from our guests?

That is up to you! Most parties that we do include taking requests from guests. Some clients prefer no requests from the guests, and we respect their wishes. 

But when guests are allowed to request and hear the songs they like to dance to, they become more emotionally involved with the event and walk away with fonder memories of the evening. We do not play inappropriate requests at events and have developed subtle ways to satisfy guests without offending them.

How do you keep your music collection up to date?

I subscribe to several different DJ Record Pools. We religiously check the Top Weekly 100s on Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes. 

In addition, we listen to Sirius Hits One, read music, and trade magazines. Music is not only our job but also a lifelong hobby and passion!

When do we need to submit our music requests and event details?

Naturally, the sooner, the better. Wedding details are usually due two weeks before the wedding so we can draw up a plan that fits your needs. 

To ensure a stress-free event, we will keep you on a weekly schedule, reminding you of what needs to be done for the six weeks leading up to your Event Entertainment Services.

What do you do to motivate the crowd if nobody is dancing?

This is usually not a problem because we have done this for a long time. However, we have developed many tricks for getting people to dance when it does happen. Some are subtle, while others are more to the point. 

A DJ can never go wrong with a classic love song or a fun group participation dance to get people on the dance floor. Beyond that, we would much rather share our secrets while you are on the dance floor!

Do you use party props?

No. Our performers do not dress in costumes or distribute funny hats and inflatable instruments. We do not harass your guests to join us on the dance floor or teach people to line dance. If you seek a performer to motivate your guests this way, you would be happier with another deejay company.

What do you require from us?

We need a table (at least six feet long) at the Event Venue and a table skirt that reaches the floor to hide our carrying cases and cables underneath the table. If you are okay with the unsightliness of such a mess, you can leave out the table skirt. 

We also ask that we be situated twenty-five feet from an electrical outlet. If we are going to be further than twenty-five feet from an outlet, we need to know this ahead of time to plan accordingly. We prefer to be situated close to the dance floor.

Do you have a light show?

Upon request, we can bring four lights that fit my DJ table, including a mirror ball, a Moonflower, and two laser lights. We use the mirror ball during “special” dances and slow dancing while the others light up the room during the dance portions of the evening. 

Uplighting or another lighting effect is available for an extra fee, including additional men, vehicles, staff hours, etc. Once we determine what you need, we can estimate the lighting.

May we meet with our DJ in person before we sign a contract?

Absolutely! Due to coordination, only some clients can do so, but we encourage in-person meetings whenever possible. Zoom meetings or Facetime work currently.

What are the terms of payment if I book your services?

50% non-refundable retainer is due with your signed contract within two weeks of your initial meeting with your DJ. The balance is collected 30 days before your Event Entertainment Services. SpectrumSound.com accepts cash, personal checks, and certified checks or money orders. 

We also accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover Card, and PayPal.

How long will you hold our date for us?

Once you have a contract, you have seven days to sign the contract and put down a retainer to hold your date. After seven days, if you have yet to return the agreement, the date is open to other potential clients.

Do you offer a written contract?

Our extensive contract details everything; The contract protects you and Spectrum Sound. The retainer is 50% and is non-refundable. A retainer secures your date. You can view it here. 2017-spectrum-sound-contract

Can we have overtime if the event goes longer than expected?

We certainly stay and continue to entertain as long as it is reasonable. We ask that you not wait until the last song to ask us. Give us some time to take it into account in our music programming. There is an extra fee for each hour of overtime.

Most importantly, why should I choose SpectrumSound.com for my Event Entertainment Services?

We provide exceptional Entertainment and this industry’s most helpful and attentive customer care.

We provide VALUE to our Bride’s Groom AND guests. Do not compromise and accept anything less.
