Frequently Asked Questions
That is a difficult question, as what is amazing for one person may not be for another. I am an open format DJ - this means I play all genres and, normally over a typical night, I will play all the hits from the last five decades if your party has all ages there (also depending on your dance floor). I also carry a full back up of equipment, so you are in safe hands with me.
When looking for a DJ, I suggest the following is observed (even if you don't book me)
- Get a DJ who is insured and PAT tested yearly
- Get a DJ who is a member of NADJ or SEDA
- Don't go for the cheapest DJ, as when you pay peanuts you often get a monkey!
- Always look at the DJ's Facebook page to see what others say
My philosophy is this concerning DJ'ing - if after the initial telephone consultation the client and myself are happy to proceed and the night is available, I will contract with them.
I am a member of NADJ which is a council for U.K. DJs and I am fully insured and PAT tested yearly. As to whether or not I am good, I know my music (especially as I have over 20,000 tracks in my database) and I know how to make a floor busy. A good DJ must know music, must understand sound and lighting and, above all, have good customer service, which I pride myself in. In my opinion, I offer the best package around.
I have a set price that reflects my time and knowledge in the industry. I also do not use roadies, so you are only paying for me. Many local DJ's have said that the amount of equipment I provide to my clients is way too much! Personally I feel if you hire me, I must bring my 'A' game and deliver a night you will be proud of. Yes, I have high end gear but, if you want to do a job well, you need great tools.
I charge £30 deposit. Once you have booked me and our contract is done, I will be there as I do not like letting anyone down. As to trust, I have run Martial Arts schools for nearly three decades (these can be viewed here. From this information, this should clarify that I am a very disciplined person that has good work ethics. I would love to do your job, but the decision is yours.
Many ask this question and I tell them the same - if you want a club DJ, hire one! A real DJ knows tempo and how the music fits together. I can mix, but I don't when I'm working as the important job for me is watching the floor and reading the guests. A good DJ is checking sound levels and lighting as well throughout the shows.
