DJ Style: Our entertainers totally tailor their performance to each couple's likes and dislikes. We can be as interactive, or as reserved as our clients wish us to be. It is your special day and you are the boss!
Limited music requests: No. We work with each couple. Some are more "hands-on" with their music selection...and other's just request a few of their favorites and allow us to be creative. It is totally your choice.
Your DJ Attire: We dress as requested by each couple. Our standard dress is a tuxedo for weddings...but we have also been asked to wear other attire for theme receptions such as Caribbean etc...
Require client to provide songs: Not usually...however there have been rare circumstances where the clients have asked us to play their own personal recordings of songs. For ex: the bride singing to the groom etc..
DJs on team: We have 3 wedding packages to choose from...the first two packages offer one Disc Jockey / Master of Ceremonies...however, we also have the two other packages that include a dj team of two entertainers. This allows one entertainer to focus on music, as the other interacts with the guests and works with the other wedding vendors in order to keep the event moving forward.
Minimum DJ time: We normally ask a 4 hour minimum , though we have made exceptions for special circumstances in the past.
Meeting before booking: The majority of our brides do not feel the need to meet with their entertainer before booking, as the vast majority of our clients have seen us at various events and know which dj they wish to choose. This being said, we are certainly open to this for any couples who are interested.
Ethnic / International Events: Not at this time.
Accept do-not-play list Certainly. We have a section for this in our planning system.
Provides own equip. Yes, we use some of the most in demand professional equipment on the market to ensure the absolute best sound for our clients. The music is always crystal clear and just the right volume. Furthermore, we bring complete back up to each event.
Special equip. offered We offer numerous upgrades such as special effects lighting, bubbles, haze, video screens etc...that can be seen on our site at www.SteveMoody.com
Setup time needed: Though it only takes us about 45 minutes to set up, we usually arrive 90 minutes prior to the event in order to do a complete sound check and test all equipment. We also use this time to speak with the other event vendors, in order to go over all of the details. We want your event to come across totally polished from all aspects.
Extra space requirements: We are very compact and can work in tight conditions of smaller venues. However, in larger venues we bring larger sound systems.
Sign or banner: We do not bring any signs or banners that would detract from the ambience of your special day. When folks are curious about who we are, we just hand them a business card.
Emcee between songs? In most cases our clients request that we make all of their announcements. All of our entertainer have received formal training in public speaking and are extremely comfortable on the microphone. From time to time, we do have clients that do not wish to have any of the formalities at their reception and would rather us just play music (more like a party atmosphere). We are totally open to our client's vision for their day.
Techniques to Motivate Crowd: Our level of interaction is based solely on the tastes of each couple. We do have several amazing routines that always work to get the crowd up and on the dance floor.
Require break meals: We do not require a meal to be provided. Our only requirement form our clients, is to let us know if a meal will be provided or not...so that our entertainers can make other arrangements if necessary. Many times our entertainers are investing in a lenghty day for weddings receptions. Though the actual reception may only be 4 or 5 hours long. They are on the go much longer when including their travel and set up time, along with tear down.
Music during breaks: If we were asked to take a break....certainly. Otherwise we provide continious entertainment.
Backup plan for absences: Yes we have several djs on staff if this were to ever be an issue. To this date none of our contracted djs have ever had to miss a performance for any reason. (Should we knock on wood?)
Multiple bookings/day: Not with Weddings. When booking a wedding with us..you have your entertainer's complete and undivided attention on that particular day.
Overtime rate: We are frequently asked to keep the party going. We have a standard rate $180.00 for each additional hour of overtime.
Charges for travel: Our travel expenses vary depending on the distance. For ex....if we are travelling several hours away, we may require an additional fee for a room etc..
Required deposit: We require a payment of $350.00 as a retainer to hold the event date at your signing of the contract. The remaing balance is not due until the day of your reception.
