Frequently Asked Questions

Yes of course, I will hold the date for 1 week and then thereafter until someone else enquires.

For weddings an initial consultation meeting is required. Once you have contacted me to let me know you’d like to book, I will send you a contract which should be read and digitally signed. An invoice will also be sent – I require a deposit of £200 to secure the booking. Once received I will then send you booking confirmation. You will then gain access to your own client planning portal.

Pretty much anything you want me to play, I have vast selection of music.  While my job is to read the crowd and get people dancing, I always give the opportunity for you to give me a playlist which I can then build around.

As long as you are happy for me to then yes. Although I won’t just play anything, and will judge whether the request will fit in with the vibe and your tastes. I’ll also take into account your DO NOT playlist if you have provided one!

In the unlikely event I was sick on the day of your event I would immediately contact some other local DJ businesses who I know well, along with some other DJ friends to find you a suitable replacement. I am also a member of NADJ (The National Association of Disc Jockeys) so there are many other DJs I can reach out to if required.

My dress code is always smart-modern, so trousers, waistcoat, shirt and tie/bow tie. I can however change what I wear if you have a preference or to fit in with a theme.

It depends on which options you go for and if you have any extras.  I don’t like to rush setting up, and would rather take a bit more time to test everything fully, so I always arrive early where I can. But if a quick set up is required then roughly an hour or so.

My aim always is to cause as little disruption as possible when setting up, and I will fully discuss the timings of your event with you to ensure this.

Yes absolutely, I encourage this. It doesn’t need to be a huge list, just your favourite songs, artists and genres that you want me to cover. This then gives a good idea of what else I think you will like. Just as important is a do not playlist! If there are artists or genres that you can’t stand or songs that bring back bad memories, just let me know.
Playlists can be created via your planning portal.

No, sorry. A DJ is there to read the crowd and mix music a way that keeps people dancing. Playing songs in a specific order will not help achieve this. I can’t promise to play everything in your playlist either (although I will do my best to fit as much as I can in).

Please complete your planning form and song playlist at least 5 weeks before the date of your event. You can log into your account at any time once your booking is confirmed, so you can add bits in and come back to it at a later date whenever you like.

Remaining balances are due two weeks before the date of the event. My booking system will send an email reminder three weeks before.

Of course! I get my electrical equipment tested every year and have PLI insurance covering £10m. This is a requirement DJs by most Venus , and I can send my certificates to venues or clients on request.
