Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do we need to book?

Most weddings are now booking up a year in advance so you should try and contact us as soon as possible. We can sometimes accept short notice bookings, please message us for more info and availability

Can we meet up to discuss my wedding?

Of course! We are always happy to meet up and talk about the services we can offer you, what type of music you would prefer, mood lighting etc. Meeting up at the venue is always best as we can go through the layout of your disco and can decide together the finer details.

What are the set up procedures?

We like to get to the venue at least an hour before we are due to start your entertainment. Once your booking has been made with us we will contact the venue and visit if necessary to arrange all the details. One less thing for you to worry about on your big day!

Do you require a deposit?

Yes, all bookings are made with a contract giving you total peace of mind. We require a £100 deposit and full payment must be made 30 days before the actual event date. This means no hassle on the night about trying to remember to pay your dj! To make things a little more easier we do take the full payment in advance. 

You're playing to a mixed crowd. What music do you have? 

A good DJ will keep the dance floor busy, but perhaps not with all of the people all of the time. Some guests may not have seen each other for years and just want to sit and chat. So if some people are just sitting down but having fun don’t worry.

We read the crowd and blend different musical styles together. We aim to fill your dancefloor and make sure you and your guests have a great time. We are more than happy to take requests and all clients will receive a music request form on booking. This will include your first dance and favourite tracks you want on the night. We can stick to one genre or vary between many different styles. The choice is yours.

Are you PAT tested and do you have PLI? 

Yes we have both. PAT testing stands for Portable Appliance Testing and it means all electrical equipment has been checked in the last year and the DJ should have a certificate to prove it. PLI is Public Liabilty Insurance. The venue should have their own but we also have it in our own right. We always email our certificates to your venue at least a month before the event. 

Can you work around live music?

Yes, this is no problem. We are happy to play the first dance and then fill in while the band are having breaks throughout the evening. This provides non-stop music and we always liase with the entertainment to make sure everything runs smoothly. Once your booking has been made you have total peace of mind that your reception is in good hands!

Making payment. 

When you have decided you would like to go ahead and book in with us, we will email you over a contract to sign and return. If you would like to pay via bank transfer, all our details will be on the contract. You can also pay with credit card via PayPal.

We have covered most things here but if there is anything else you need to know, just ask! You can contact us on the form below, email, give us a call or whatsap us a message.
