QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

What is your DJ experience?

In over 15 years I have provided entertainment for weddings, engagements, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th birthday parties, school formals, corporate functions, bar-mitzvahs, bat-mitzvahs and Christmas parties.

In May 2012, I received the Australian Bridal Industry Academy award for Best DJ – Victoria.

In 2013, I won theĀ  Australian Bridal Industry Academy award for Best MC – Victoria and was runner-up for Best DJ.

2014 I again received the Best DJ Award and was runner-up for MC.

I am an accredited member of The DJ Alliance Of Australia.

Do you also provide MC only services?

Absolutely! My MC’ing style is friendly, informative and welcoming.
And no, I don’t sound like one of The Wiggles…

Are you licensed and insured?

I have Public Liability Insurance which covers me for claims up to 20 million dollars in the case of accidental damage or injury.

I am licensed with the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA) which allows the performance of copyrighted sound recordings by licensed DJs. My licence number is: 329632.
It is illegal for any DJ to play music in public in Australia without a PPCA licence.

How much?

Please contact me to arrange for a ‘no-strings attached’ meeting to discuss your ideas and requirements at your home or workplace.
Weekday evenings are preferred, though weekends during the day can be arranged in most cases.

What time will you arrive at my event?

Arrival at the venue is approximately 2 hours prior to the start of your event. This allows me to set up my equipment and perform a light & sound check to make sure that everything is 101% perfect before the arrival of you and your guests.

Can you also play ceremony music for my wedding?

Yes. I have a dedicated system especially for ceremony music. Very discreet and it sounds awesome.

What payment options do you offer?
I accept cash payment on the day of your event or bank transfer one week prior to the date of your event.
Alternatively, you can pay in installments if you prefer.
Cheques are also accepted but must be received on week prior to the date of your event.

How much deposit is required?

Should you wish to proceed with a booking, you will receive an email confirmation within 24 hours.
25% deposit (fully refundable) is required within a week of receiving your confirmation of booking .
The date of your event is secured exclusively for you.

How do I make a booking?

Should you wish to make a booking directly, please call me or use the ‘contact’ form on this website.
But I would prefer to meet up with you prior to accepting a booking.

You mean I can meet up with you prior to making a booking?

Definitely. I will visit you at your home or office prior to you making a decision on your entertainment requirements.
There is no charge or obligation for this. Meetings are best arranged for weekday evenings or weekends during the day dependent on mutual availability.

I have gone to considerable time & effort to create a sophisticated and elegant event – what does your setup look like?

I also went to considerable time, effort and expense to ensure that my equipment would fit in to the most sophisticated and elegant venue.

My mixer is a Pioneer DDJ-SX running Serato DJ through a system dedicated MacBook Air.
Two 1600w Mackie SRM550 speakers provide crisp, clear music which can be supplemented with two 650w DB Technologies speakers for larger venues if required.
A Shure SM-58 cordless microphone is provided free of additional charge.
Finally, I use modern, sophisticated DMX controlled lighting to ensure that the music matches the light show and vice-versa.
I believe that lighting effects should compliment the music – not overpower it.

Can I choose the music I want to hear?

Absolutely!

Over the course of a five hour event , there are approximately 80 songs played.
I would ask that you provide a list of at least 20 to 30 of your favourite bands, artists or songs – this allows me to get a ‘feel’ for your musical preferences.
Additionally, your guest’s requests are welcomed and encouraged at your event.

What backup will you have on site in case the extremely unlikely occurs? How would you cope if a microphone, amp, CD player or mixer failed on the night?

Any performer’s worst nightmare is equipment failure. I carry a spare mixer, CD player and amplifier to each and every event.
I hope that the above answers some of the more commonly asked questions.
If not, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
