All packages are different BUT the procedure is generally the same when it comes to preparing and completing your package. See the instructions provided here for a general understanding. These procedures will be explained the day you book our service and we encourage everyone to ask questions. In the event you forget the instructions given to you, you can use this as a refresher. Make sure to schedule your event review with us. Fell free to call if you wish to get even more details.
1. DJ entertainment: After you have booked our entertainment service you will be provided a party planning tool. We request that you email us from your email so that we can simply copy and paste the info. This way we avoid an error in email address. You will get three forms to work on. Its a simple "fill in the blanks". The "planner" form is where you need to input things like: Court and guest of honor introduction songs, formal first dances, toast, and order of court if it applies to your event. You can also leave specific instructions manually if needed. The second form is the "music request". Self explanatory. You provide us with your must plays, and play if you cans. It also allows you to input do not play. We will add our favorites and what we think would work along to your selections. In the event you do not find a specific song in our data base, feel free to copy and paste the Youtube URL in special instructions area provided on form.

All packages offer a final review at our location no earlier than three weeks prior to your event which you have to schedule. We will review your package, answer questions and address any concerns.

If your package includes a gobo spot light (for your name on floor or wall) please note the gobo will be generic unless the plate fee is included in the package to personalize it. The fee is generally $100 more for your personal message and design and takes two weeks to complete and have delivered. Finally make sure that your venue gives us a prime location for set-up. Generally center to dance floor with-out obstruction is best to have desirable results. It is also a must for packages that include TV monitors. Check with your venue to see if they have any policy that would prevent us from providing a specific item your package has in advance. They can call or email us if there is any questions or concerns. Since we do not offer a venue preview in our typical package we recommend sending us a floor plan prior to your event and instructions if needed.
