FAQs

Q: HOW LONG DO YOU RECOMMEND BOOKING IN ADVANCE FOR MY EVENT?

A: I AM OFTEN FULLY BOOKED OUT ON WEEKENDS ANYWHERE FROM 1-2 YEARS IN ADVANCE. I WOULD RECOMMEND GETTING IN TOUCH WITH ME 1-1.5 YEARS BEFORE YOUR EVENT TO AVOID ANY DISAPPOINTENT AND TO ENSURE YOUR EVENT IS A ROCKING ONE!

Q: WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU PLAY?

A; I SPECIALISE IN R&B AND HOUSE, HOWEVER I CAN PLAY EVERYTHING RANGING FROM 80S, 90S AND CULTURAL MUSIC. ANY CULTURAL MUSIC REQUESTS MUST BE COMMUNICATED BEFORE A BOOKING HAS BEEN MADE.

Q: I WANT TO BOOK YOU, BUT I WANT YOU TO PLAY ROCK, HEAVY METAL AND OTHER GENRES. CAN YOU DO THIS?

A; NO. THIS IS NOT MY STYLE. EVERY DJ IS DIFFERENT AS AS MENTIONED ABOVE, I SPECIALISE IN R&B, HOUSE ALONG WITH 80S AND 90S. IF THIS ISN'T YOUR STYLE, THEN I'M NOT THE PERSON FOR YOU.

Q: CAN I PROVIDE YOU WITH A PLAYLIST OF SONGS TO PLAY DURING YOUR SET?

A: I DON'T TAKE ON ANY BOOKINGS WHICH INVOLVE PRE-MADE PLAYLISTS BEING PLAYED DURING A DANCE BRACKET SET. AS EACH EVENT IS UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PRE-DETERMINE EXACTLY WHAT WILL BE PLAYED ON THE NIGHT AND THIS GOES AGAINST WHAT OUR JOB CONSISTS OF - MIXING MUSIC, READING THE CROWD, PLAYING WHAT I SPECIALISE IN AND WHAT WILL WORK TO MAKE THE DANCEFLOOR BOUNCE! 

IN SAYING THIS, YOU ARE WELCOME TO PROVIDE A HANDFUL OF 'MUST PLAYS' THAT YOU WOULD LIKE PLAYED ON THE NIGHT. THESE 'HANDFUL' OF SONGS WILL ALSO BE USED AS A REFERENCE TO GAUGE THE KIND OF STYLE YOU WOULD LIKE ON THE NIGHT. KEEP IN MIND, SOME/ALL OF THESE MAY NOT WORK BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE OVER THE YEARS AND THIS WILL BE COMMUNICATED TO PRIOR TO ANY BOOKING.

Q: CAN YOU DJ & MC, OR IS IT ONLY ONE OR THE OTHER?

A: I AM ABLE DO BOTH (DJ & MC). YOU DO ALSO HAVE THE OPTION OF CHOOSING ME TO BE THE DJ ONLY IF THIS SUITS YOU.

Q: WE ALREADY HAVE AN MC BOOKED, WILL THE PRICE BE THE SAME IF WE CHOOSE TO HAVE YOU AS A DJ ONLY?

A: THE PRICE WILL REMAIN THE SAME. MY MC SERVICE IS ALREADY INCLUDED IN THE SERVICE I PROVIDE.

Q: I HAVE ALREADY BOOKED AN MC, IS THIS GOING TO BE OK?

A: THIS WON'T BE AN ISSUE AS LONG AS IT IS A PROFESSIONAL MC. I ALSO STRICTLY DO NOT TAKE ON ANY BOOKINGS WHICH INVOLVE A FRIEND/FAMILY MEMBER BEING THE MC.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IN THE EVENT AN EXTERNAL MC IS HIRED, THE ENTIRE OPERATION/RUNNING OF THE NIGHT WILL BE IN THEIR CONTROL ONLY AND THEY WILL HAVE FULL RESPONSIBILITY OVER THE TIMINGS AND HOW THE NIGHT IS RUN. I WILL BE LIMITED TO PLAYING MUSIC ONLY DURING ENTRANCES, FORMALITIES, DANCE BRACKETS & BACKGROUND MUSIC.

 

EXTERNAL MC'S STRICTLY MUST BRING THEIR OWN WIRELESS MICROPHONE, THE SAME WAY I AM EXPECTED TO BRING MY OWN EQUIPMENT.

Q: DO YOU PROVIDE YOUR OWN EQUIPMENT, OR DO WE HAVE TO HIRE EQUIPMENT?

A; YES, I PROVIDE MY OWN EQUIPMENT WHICH IS ALREADY INCLUDED IN THE PRICE SO YOU WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT A THING.

Q: THE VENUE I HAVE BOOKED IS UPSTAIRS, HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO SET UP?

A: IF THERE IS A VENUE THAT HAS STAIRS, LIFT ACCESS OR REQUIRES AN EXTENSIVE SET UP TIME THERE WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL $300 UPSTAIRS SET UP AND PACK DOWN FEE FOR LABOUR COSTS. THIS IS BECAUSE I WILL NEED TO HIRE AN ASSISTANT DURING SET UP/PACKDOWN AND THEY MAY ALSO BE REQUIRED TO STAY THE NIGHT. SET UP AND PACK DOWN TIME MAY RANGE ANYWHERE FROM 1.5-3 HOURS ONE WAY.

Q: I HAVE MY WEDDING CEREMONY IN THE SAME ROOM THAT THE RECEPTION IS GOING TO BE HELD IN. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SET UP?

A: IT NORMALLY TAKES A MINIMUM OF 1.5 HOURS FOR SET UP AND SOUND CHECK AT A VENUE. 

IF THE WEDDING CEREMONY IS HELD IN THE SAME ROOM AS THE RECEPTION, OR IN THE SURROUNDING AREAS THAT WILL INTERFERE WITH SET UP AND SOUND CHECK THEN THIS WILL INCUR AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE OF $200 PER APPLICABLE HOUR THAT IT TAKES TO SET UP, BE READY AND PERFORM A SOUND CHECK BEFORE THE CEREMONY START TIME HAS COMMENCED. THIS MUST BE COMMUNICATED BEFORE ANY BOOKING OR EVENT HAS TAKEN PLACE.

Q: THERE ARE NOISE/SOUND RESTRICTIONS AT THE VENUE I HAVE BOOKED - IS THIS GOING TO BE A PROBLEM?

A: YES. SOME VENUES HAVE NOISE RESTRICTIONS AND THIS SEVERELY IMPACTS THE QUALITY OF THE NIGHT, THE PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS AND PERFORMANCE THAT I AIM TO ACHIEVE AT EVERY EVENT. THIS MUST BE COMMUNICATED TO ME BEFORE ANY BOOKING HAS BEEN CONFIRMED AND IN THESE INSTANCES, I WON'T TAKE A BOOKING IF THERE ARE SUCH RESTRICTIONS. THERE ARE A LIST OF VENUES WHICH I DO NOT PLAY AT DUE TO THIS. 

Q: I HAVE BOOKED YOU FOR MY EVENT, HOWEVER FOR PERSONAL REASONS I NEED TO CHANGE DATES. WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?

A: IN THE EVENT OF A DATE CHANGE, THE DEPOSIT IS NON-REFUNDABLE AND ANY NEW DATES WILL BE TREATED AS A NEW BOOKING. 

Q: I HAVE BOOKED YOU FOR MY EVENT, BUT DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS I'M SCARED IT MAY GET POSTPONED OR CANCELLED. WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE?

A: IN THE EVENT OF A DATE CHANGE DUE TO COVID-19 GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS IMPACTING YOUR BOOKING, I WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO RESCHEDULE YOUR BOOKING AND TRANSFER THE FULL DEPOSIT TO A NEW DATE DEPENDING ON MY AVAILABILITY. IN THESE INSTANCES, IT'S IMPORTANT TO LET ME KNOW THE DATES YOU ARE WANTING TO CHANGE TO SO THAT WE CAN WORK TOGETHER AND ENSURE EVERYTHING IS MOVED OVER SEAMLESSLY. 

Q: I'M INTERESTING IN BOOKING YOU, CAN WE MEET FACE TO FACE FIRST?

A: DUE TO AN EXTENSIVE WORK SCHEDULE, REGULARLY BOOKED OUT WEEKENDS AND EXISTING CLIENT MEETINGS, I DO NOT MEET FACE TO FACE FOR NEW ENQUIRIES. I WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO DISCUSS ANYTHING OVER A PHONE CALL OR VIA EMAIL IN WRITING AND MY WORK IS ALSO DISPLAYED ON MY WEBSITE, INSTAGRAM AND SOUNDCLOUD.
