Q • Do you take song requests during the evening?
A • Most certainly, in fact I welcome it, but will use some discretion though
Q • Can we send you a list of songs we love?
A • Off course yes, but please try and keep it to 50 songs max, otherwise I'll have no idea which songs are really important to you. If you really like long lists, please highlight your top 20 :)
Q • Do you have back up equipment?
A • The short answer is "Yes", the long answer is I invested in Active Speakers manufactured by leading brands (JBL, RCF and Samson). Since it's an active system (Each speaker has a built in amplifier) and not run from a central amplifier, you won't even notice if one of the speakers malfunctioned as the rest of the speakers run independently. I also prepare for the unexpected, so there's always a spare mixer and laptop in the van as well.
Q • Will the DJ I book play at my wedding?
A • Yes, if you book me, I will play at your wedding. However, we know there's no guarantees in life (Just look at 2020!!!!!), therefore I have professional DJs who I can rely on in case of unforseen events.
Q • What do we need to provide you with?
A • The venue needs to provide a standard trestle table, table cloth and plug point please.
Q • Is dance floor lighting included in your quote?
A • Yes, dance floor lighting is included in all my quotes.
Q • How long before our wedding should we book you?
A • At any given time, I have bookings up to 18 months in advance. If you book 12 months in advance the chances are good that one of my DJs will be available for your wedding.
Q • Our wedding ceremony starts at 3pm, how late will you arrive?
A • I aim to arrive at least two hours before your ceremony to set up and will have music playing long before your first guests arrive.
Q • How much music do you have?
A • I always say , it's not about how much music you have, it's about knowing what to play where, when and for whom. My music library is extensive though, and chances are that I'll have any song requests your guests can throw at us. I also have access to iTunes (Dependent on cellphone data coverage off course)
Q • Do you charge to set-up and break down?
A • No, I don't charge for set-up and break down time.
Q • Can you meet us at our venue before the wedding?
A • I am based in Durban and normally meet couples at coffee shops in Westville. If you would prefer me to meet you at your venue, an additional travel fee will apply. Meetings aren't always possible though, especially for my bridal couples based overseas, so a lot of my meetings are conducted over Skype, telephone or just an email these days
Q • How do we book you as our DJ?
A • Just reply to my quote once you are ready to book and pay a deposit.
Q • Our ceremony is in a forest and there's no electricity?
A • No problem at at, I have invested in battery powered PA system for forest ceremonies and can run my PA system for up to 3 hours without Eskom..
