Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you charge?
Cost can vary depending on the necessary equipment, length of show and on the type of service you require. But, when providing a quote, we like to keep it simple for you - with no hidden costs. We also believe our prices are very reasonable for the service we offer.
Why not contact us for a quote. You may be pleasantly surprised.
How do I pay?
We require a £50 deposit to secure your booking. The remainder is payable on the night in cash. If you want to pay beforehand or in instalments this is welcome.
What is your consultation? Where does it take place? How much does it cost?
We feel it is important to get to know you and your expectations before we do your event. For most this will be done over the phone, but for weddings we prefer to see you in person. As it is the most important day of your life we want to make sure we fully understand you and your expectations and that you have trust in us. We can meet at your home or out and about over a coffee. We are more than happy to meet anyone for a consultation to give you peace of mind.
All consultations are free of charge
Can I or my guests request songs?
We gladly take song requests. We accept song requests or full playlists beforehand, and we can issue request slips to guests and take requests during the show. We have a very large collection of music from 1950 right through to today. Should you have something very specific you want played, we accept music on audio CD's on the night.
Can you play background music during dinner?
Yes, we have a large collection of relaxing music both old and new, we are also happy to play anything you have in mind.
Do you talk on the microphone?
We are confident to talk on the microphone, we will however discuss with you the amount you require. From experience, we are aware that most people prefer to listen to the music and keep the DJ banter to a minimum. We will discuss the level of talking at your consultation.
How long do you need to set up?
We usually give ourselves one hour to complete the set up and do sound checks.
How will we be dressed?
We will always be clean, tidy and smartly dressed. Again, we will discuss this in more depth at your consultation to ensure we fit your dress code.
We would like to hire a live act as well, is this ok?
Yes this is fine, we have worked with many professional acts in the past. Also, remember Ali is a vocalist and can do a live set for you too.
We are on a tight budget and do not have a wedding / party planner can you help?
Yes, we are experienced planners and would be happy to help. You can discuss this further at your consultation.
Can we use your microphones for our speeches and/or presentations?
Yes, we are more than happy to supply microphones.
