Frequently Asked Questions
Are you and your music appropriately licensed by ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and RIAA? - In the United States, mobile DJ's aren't required to obtain licenses from ASCAP, BMI, or SESAC. These organizations instead license the venues where we play (hotels, bars, restaurants, etc.) Mobile DJ's are not required to obtain licenses to play prerecorded music at private events, such as weddings or private (not-for-profit) parties.
If the event will charge admission, then the event holder or venue are required to pay the fees appropriate for their venue.
Mobile DJ's ARE required to purchase properly licensed music, however. That means we must use purchased commercially-available CD's, or DJ service-provided music. Music stolen from the Internet is not properly licensed, and any DJ caught using unpurchased music is subject to huge fines.
Should we tip the DJ? - If you'd like. As a general rule it is a nice gesture for service-based personnel to be tipped if you have received service that pleases you. However we don't expect tips and won't hold it against you if you choose not to tip. (We won't put out a "tip jar" at your event. We think it's tacky.)
How much to tip? - We seem to typically be offered between $1 and $5 for song requests, and if our client is particularly pleased at the end of the event, we've received from $5 to over $100. Again, it's up to you. We will graciously accept anything you care to offer.
Should we feed the DJ? - Unlike feeding the animals at the zoo, it's okay to feed the DJ. As a general rule the DJ(s) will have been working for at least three hours prior to your event loading and unloading, and setting up. In addition to working through your event, they'll spend a couple of hours afterward reloading the van and "heading back to the barn." We get hungry just like everyone else, and would certainly appreciate the opportunity to eat if possible.
If this is a problem however, just let us know and we'll make alternate arrangements. We understand (especially during a catered, sit-down dinner) that there may be a cost associated that we certainly don't expect you to bear.
Will you take requests from our guests? - Our normal policy is to solicit requests from your guests during the course of the event. We will then play them in the segments appropriate to that song. We find that playing the guests' requests improves audience interaction.
If you don't want us to accept requests, just let us know.
Will you play music from my own CD collection? - Though we have an extensive music collection, we realize that there may be songs that your group would like to hear that we don't have. If you'll let us know in advance, we'll be happy to procure the music that you'd like for us to play. Another words, we will purchase the music you would like to be played so there is no argument about who's CD is who's.
Do you have a demo tape? - We don't provide video or audio demonstration tapes. Do we have something to hide? Not at all. If you'll take a look at our competitors' tapes, you'll see everyone happy, dancing, and fully enjoying themselves. The announcer/MC will perform flawlessly, and you'll no doubt be impressed. But remember, this tape is produced to cast them in their best light. So while it may give you some idea of what their equipment and MC's look like, it won't adequately predict how your particular event will turn out. In excess of 50% of our business is repeat or referred customers. That tells us that we must be doing something right.
Will we have fun? - Of course! Actually, we can't guarantee that. Let's face it, no matter how entertaining we may be, some groups just aren't there to party. Any DJ that tells you EVERY party they've thrown has been great is lying (or at least stretching the truth) . All we can say is that we've never been told we performed poorly, and we've never been asked to refund any money.
Of course, we've also played at parties where we were requested into overtime because the clients were having so much fun.
