Is lighting included with my music?

We offer many types of lighting, flat screens and effects options that can be included as part of your quote. Please see our lighting page.


How many breaks do your DJs take during an event?

Our DJs do not take any breaks during a normal 4 to 6 hour event. Your service is uninterrupted during that period.


Do you charge for travel and set up?

Normally, we never charge for travel or set up. Once in awhile, circumstances warrant additional charges for us to travel long distances, wait time or for additional sound systems. Otherwise there are no hidden fees or extra charges.


Do I have to tip the DJ?

If your DJ does an outstanding job and you want to show your appreciation, please feel free to tip. 10% is customary.


Do I have to provide a meal for the DJ?

A meal for your DJ is a nice gesture, but is not required.


How will the DJ, event staff or set up crew be dressed?

Your DJ will be dressed in a style appropriate to your event such as a tux, suit, business casual or themed. Staff is dressed business casual or themed. Set up crew is dressed neat, appropriate and professional.


What kind of sound equipment do you use?

All of our equipment is new and state-of-the-art. We use a combination of good old fashioned CDs and computers with digital music. Our sound systems come in smallPartyProDJ Yamaha small set up, medium and large to match the requirements of your event. When necessary, we can provide multiple sound systems. We use JBL and Yamaha speakers, American Audio, Denon, Numark and Pioneer CD players. Crown, QSC and Yamaha amplifiers. AKG, Electro Voice, Sennheiser and Shure microphones. Windows and Mac based computers and software, plus high quality cables, components and connectors.


Will I have control over how loud the music is?

Yes. We work with you and your venue to create sound levels that are appropriate for your event. We can raise or lower the sound levels at various times during your event.


Will we be able to use your sound system for toasts, etc.?

What kind of lighting equipment do you use?

Our lighting fixtures are a combination of conventional and LED. Up lighting, dance floor wash, custom monogram and pin spotting as well as white and multi-colored ball and bank lighting. See our lighting page.


May I see my DJ perform before I decide?

At a private wedding or event, no. However, when the DJs are performing in public such as a sports event or local club, it's possible to see them there. Also, you can meet your DJ ahead of time to be sure there's a good match.


Do you book more than one event on one day?

Yes. We have the ability and manpower to book multiple events. However, we NEVER DOUBLE BOOK YOUR DJ. Your DJ will be with you for your entire event. And there is always a DJ serving as back up in the unlikely event of an emergency. Plus, you have the option of having more than one DJ / MC at your event.


Can I pick the music for my event?

Absolutely! It's your event and the music is important on your special day. We'll work with you to ensure we have all your "must plays" as well as your "do not plays". Our huge music library is available to you on-line to make your selections and create your own play list. From classical to contemporary, the music is as individual as you are. We also welcome any specialty music you provide. And of course we take requests, if you choose.


What about Ceremony and Cocktail music?

Not a problem. You can choose from our massive music library or even provide your own.


How much time is required to set up and break down your equipment?

Typically for a music only event, we arrive an hour before your start time to set up and familiarize ourselves with the layout of the venue and perform a sound check. We touch base with the caterer, photographer and any other vendors you've included. During most events, Beth, Aubrey or Allie or Annie will also be there to oversee the set up and to ensure your event runs smoothly with no surprises. Normally, we need about 45 minutes to break down and load out. For large events with lighting, multiple sound systems, TV screens or effects, a longer time is needed for the breakdown.


Do you offer free consultations?

Yes! Beth is available to meet with you for a no cost, no obligation consultation. Beth will answer all your questions and explain our services. Plus, Beth is available for all follow up meetings, phone calls and email. Every event is unique and is specifically tailored to suit your personality and style. To set up a no obligation, no pressure meeting, please call Beth, 1.860.871.7515 or email Beth at - laangel AT partyprodj DOT com.


Do you require a deposit?

Yes. To reserve your date and DJ, we require a $300 non-refundable deposit. The balance is due seven (7) days before your event. Once your deposit is received, you'll get your contract to sign, your invoice for your deposit and your personal password to our online music library and tools to begin choosing music and planning your event.


Do you provide references?

Yes! We take great pride in our level of service to our clients and will gladly provide references for you to check. In the meantime, please review many of the impressive reviews and testimonials from previous clients.
