Have A Question?

Will our DJ act as an Emcee during our event?

Yes , we will act as an Emcee during your event.  This is one of the services we offer that is key to the success of your function.  Your DJ will make all announcements and make sure that the night keeps on track according to your time line.

Can I see you in action?


From time to time I’ll get asked this question, and the first thing I always tell prospective clients is that every wedding is extremely personal, not to mention private.  So, no, it is not possible unless we are working a public event.

Are you insured? Can you supply me with proof of liability?

Definitely.  Many responsible business owners carry liability insurance.  That protects you and the business. Some locations are beginning to require proof of insurance.  A Certificate of Liability can be used as proof.  We are insured for $2,000,000.

How much power do you need?

Ideally we need at least one dedicated 15 or 20 amp circuit.  Many times we need two and sometimes even three.

We do not charge for mileage or set up within Maricopa County.  The contracted price includes travel, set up and take down time.  Our pricing is inclusive of travel.

What is it Beat Mixing? Why does it matter at my wedding?

Beat mixing (or beat matching) is an exciting way of mixing one song into another.  Many mobile DJs will let Song A completely fade out, then push play on Song B.  The result?  Energy and momentum on the dance floor is lost.  I say “No way!” One of the biggest reasons wedding DJs are hired in the first place is to keep guests entertained and dancing throughout the night.  Most wedding DJs either can’t or don’t know how to beat mix, or try to do it and it ends up sounding like a mess.

How can my wedding benefit from a DJ vs an iPod or band?

What a great question. Here are some statistics that may surprise you:


72% of all brides say they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment.

Almost 100% say they would have spent more of their budget on the entertainment.

During wedding planning, brides say their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception site. Entertainment is among the least of their priorities. Within one week after their reception, 78% of brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!

When asked, 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment.

65% of couples that chose a band to entertain at their wedding said, if they had it to do over again they would have chosen a DJ.

And keep in mind:

**No band or iPod can ever coordinate, direct, and MC your wedding**
