Poor equipment is the hallmark of an amateur event or wedding DJ. It’s also not something anyone booking a professional DJ service should have to worry about. But unfortunately, the reality of planning an event is that you need to know your vendor’s professionalism ahead of time. And a DJ is only as good as their gear. They may be the best at mixing music. But if the DJ equipment is an eyesore and their speakers crackle, no one remembers transitions. They remember how the sounds themselves hurt their ears and the DJ set-up was unsightly. That’s why we only use cutting-edge equipment. No intrusive wires or busted speakers. Our set-ups look as good as they sound.
Our standard rates include a travel radius of 100 miles (one-way) from Syracuse, NY. This means we cover most areas of Central NY, Southern Tier, Finger Lakes and the Mohawk Valley.  This includes the cities of Syracuse, Rochester, Binghamton, Utica, Auburn, Watertown, Ithaca and everywhere in between. We are available for events beyond our standard service area for an additional fee depending on distance.
All we need to get started from you is a 35% deposit. So that another person doesn't book your date, we happily provide a courtesy hold of your date on our calendar for 7 days to give you time to think it over and make a decision. When ready to book, simply digitally sign the agreement we email you, pay your deposit and your date will be reserved! The remaining balance is due 15 days before the event. We try to make payments easy and convenient. You can make payments on our website or in your planning portal. You’re free to use check, cash, debit, credit, PayPal, Venmo or Zelle to make all of your payments. Click here to contact us for more information on pricing.
We do not include gratuity in the final contract price. 10 – 20% is generally recommended if your DJ did a great job, but it is entirely up to you.
You can select songs that you would like to hear at your event (as well as songs you don’t want to hear) through our online planning system. You will receive login information for that system in an email with your contract. The number of songs you request is totally up to you! We recommend giving your DJ at least 10-15 songs of different genres and artists that you would like to hear. A few songs/artists that you don’t want to hear is always helpful as well. If you end up requesting a lot of songs, just keep in mind the time constraints of your event. During your initial consultation, your DJ will ask about your music preferences.
We offer DJ and Emcee services for wedding ceremonies and receptions, corporate events, private parties, and school functions. We offer lighting options (uplighting and dance floor lighting) and photo booths.
This is not required in our contract and is completely up to you. Typically, the catering director or event coordinator will set aside a meal or boxed dinner for the DJ if requested by the client.
