Questions to ask your DJ?
What does your set up look like?
Do you have any RECENT testimonials?
How are you going find out what music my guests and we like?
Show me lots of pictures of weddings you have played at. No, not your decks.
Do you have any inspiration to make our wedding different?
Can we ask for music, but still have your advice and experience to ensure our party rocks?
Will you communicate with our other wedding professionals on the day, to plan a timeline for our reception.
Will it be FUN?

Is your price high enough to ensure that we’re dealing with a full time professional?
Are you familiar with our venue?
