Frequently Asked Questions

What areas do you cover? We are based in Marlow, Buckinghamshire and cover all of Bucks, Herts, Berkshire & Oxfordshire. We do accept bookings in other areas too but there will be an additional charge

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 should our first song be? Quite possibly this should be something that is special to both of you. A good DJ should be able to help but not dictate to you. Some popular choices include Endless Love by Lionel Richie & Diana Ross, Can’t Help Falling In Love With You by Elvis Presley and Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran.

A lot of couples get nervous about this, but don’t worry. It’s wonderful if you’re really graceful but if you’re not try and practice a bit. If all else fails just smile and try and avoid falling over. You are among people who love you for who you are and not your ability to shake it on the dancefloor. Also, we play at a lot of weddings where the bride and groom decide not to have a first dance at all. Its totally upto you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 deposit and full payment must be made 14 days before the actual 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. Without these a venue may turn your DJ away. Accept no excuses!

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!
