DO YOU HAVE REFERENCES?
After every party, we send our customers a survey
card to fill out. Those that respond go on our referral
We're proud to share them
WHAT WILL YOU BE WEARING FOR MY FUNCTION?
Tuxedos are worn at all weddings and formal events.
Other times, the attire is more casual to fit the
type of event.
CAN WE MEET THE DJ THAT WILL BE PERFORMING OUR EVENT?
It is the policy of Dance Party Productions
for each client to meet their DJ before any contract
is signed. This way, your DJ will develop a
strong connection with the client and this will help
your DJ to understand everything you want done.
WHAT TIME WILL YOU SHOW UP FOR MY EVENT?
Depending on if you've requested a light show, anywhere
between 45 minutes and 1 1/2 hours prior to your start
DO YOU HAVE BACK-UP EQUIPMENT?
Absolutely! As with most electronics, there are never
signs of problems before it stops working! That's
why we come prepared! We carry "backup equipment"
to all our events. "Not on hand" as
some other DJs claim they do.
DO YOU OFFER A WRITTEN CONTRACT?
Yes. Performance information as well as cancellations,
deposit, and final payment policies are all extremely
important matters. Every function to be performed
require an agreement in writing between Dance Party
Productions and the client.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK A DJ?
As with all event planning, sooner the better. Most
popular dates book early and in some cases, this can
be up to two years in advance. Book early to get what
you want. Waiting till the last minute may be disappointing.
HOW DO WE SECURE DANCE PARTY PRODUCTIONS?
All events performed by Dance Party Productions
require a signed contract from the client along with
a Deposit. This will ensure your date will be reserved. We accept all major credit cards.
NO EVENT CAN BE RESERVED WITHOUT A CONTRACT.
IS THERE A TRAVEL CHARGE FOR LONG DISTANCES OR SET UP AND BREAK DOWN OF EQUIPMENT ?
There is no travel charge within a 30 mile radius from our business location. Travel beyond the radius would be included in our quote to you. We don't charge for set up or break down of equipment.
If your venues only access to set up is by stairs or inadequate elevator. It would be impossible for 1 person to lift equipment up stairs. A DJ Assistant will be needed to help with equipment set up. Therefore a small fee would be needed. In the case of venues who have ramps and will not allow DJs or other vendors to used them. This fee will also apply. Please consult your venue.
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
In an effort to save money or because of lack of
knowledge, many DJs use consumer grade home equipment
in their system. There is a difference.
We use professional equipmentsuch as: JBL, Mackie, Pioneer, QSC, Furman, Shure to name a few.
Dance Party Productions will provide a
professional high quality sound system suited for
your event. All systems are neatly installed
in clean rack mounted roadcases.
WHAT IF I NEED HELP PLANNING MY FUNCTION?
From the initial meeting with Dance Party Productions,
our goal is to provide the best, worry-free, fun for
you and your guests. We just won't play music
during your function. From our first meeting to the end of your function. We will invest nearly 25 hours planning your functon. A full time staff is always here and happy to assist you in the planning stages
or just to answer any questions you may have.
Plus we will supply you with all copyrighted planning forms to
make your party a success!
Lastly, we will act as you Master Of Ceremony
WHAT IS A MASTER OF CEREMONY?
Your DJ should take an active
part in your function.
At Dance Party Productions
all of our DJs will be happy to assist you in the
- Direct all event activities
- Coordinate your function
with photographer, wedding consultant, banquet manager
- Follow your pre-approved
- Make all announcements
- Insure Bride/Groom are ready
for each activity
MY GUESTS ARE HAVING A GREAT TIME. CAN MY DJ STAY
OVER THE CONTRACTED TIME?
Overtime is always available. It is offered
in 30 minute increments and can be arranged near the
end of the original contracted time.
14. DO YOU PLAY REQUESTS?
Yes! Dance Party Productions has over 1 million songs.There is something for everyone. It is always being up-dated with new music. If you hear it
on the radio or at a dance club, we already have it!
But please remember we will play your guests selection, if it's a music type appropriate for your function.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU PLAY DURING DINNER?
Soft background music for cocktail and dinner.
I HAVE BEEN TO FUNCTIONS WHERE THE DJ HAS SMOKED AND
HAD A FEW DRINKS. WHAT IS YOUR POLICY?
NEVER!!!!! This is your
function. Dance Party Productions DJs
are there to work. It is not permitted under
any circumstances. While performing, setting
up or breaking down.
WHAT IF THE DJ GETS SICK OR CAN'T MAKE IT FOR SOME REASON?
Your event is very important to us as it is to you.
Dance Party Productions personnel have NEVER
MISSED A SHOW in all the years we've been in the business.
But just in case.... We keep one DJ from our staff
on "standby mode" for emergencies.
CAN I REQUEST A SONG
As soon as you book with us you will receive our entertainment packet. Forms will be provided for
you to fill out. But keep in mind that your list should
include just a handful of songs that you've just got
to hear! Remember, your guests will have requests
too - if they don't hear them, they just might leave!
CAN WE BRING MUSIC CD's FOR THE DJ TO PLAY?
We will be happy to play any music the client brings.
As long it is legal and not copied music. Any music
brought by guests must fit within the limits of the
event. The DJ will have final say.
DO YOU RECORD ANY OF YOUR MUSIC TO REDUCE COST?
The answer to that question is NO!!!!!!! First of
all it is ILLEGAL !!!!! A Disc Jockey is not exempt
from copyright laws. The law is simple: Duplication
copyright sound recordings for professional disc jockey
purposes without the authorization of the sound copyright
owner is a violation. Violators can be liable up to
$100,000.00 per recording. I have heard in some cases
DJ functions were forced to stop. CD MUSIC and EQUIPMENT
seized and removed! You as a customer might be tempted
to sign with a DJ who seems cheap in prices. But is
your function worth all this!
The agency that enforces this policy is the Recording
Industry Association Of America (RIAA). One of their
jobs is to show up at functions to check up to see
if music has been duplicated.
WHERE DOES YOUR COMPANY RECEIVE YOUR MUSIC FROM?
Because of our exposure. Record companies send us advanced promotion copies of future music. Our DJs also subscribe to many music services ONLY
for PROFESSIONAL DJs. These services are the same used
by many radio stations.
Because of this approach - Dance
Party Productions will guarantee you will have
the latest music played at your function.

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
The biggest mistake most people make is that this is the ONLY question they ask! Why would a great DJ service charge a fraction of the going rate? The DJ service whoever you decide is the most important factor in the success of your event. Ever go to a party as a guest and the entertainment was real bad. Everyone leaves early. Everyone loses. Our service is based on VALUE vs just looking in the phone book. Calling 20 Djs and booking a cheap service on the phone. We are not that type of service.
A professional service will set-up an appointment with you. Let's be honest, is that the way your going to book a photographer or venue.
Don't be fooled... You do get what you pay for!
Factors effecting the price include:
- Day of the week
- Time of the year
- If we need to climb stairs to set up
- Distance to your function
- Type of party
- If we need to provide a tent for dj and equipment
- Light show requested
- Larger sound system needed
- Karaoke requested
- Props (leis, inflatables, maracas, and more)
- Contest give a ways
- Other options
WHY WOULD YOU NEED TO SET UP A TENT AT OUR BACKYARD
FUNCTION IF IT IS NOT GOING TO RAIN?
The sun can cause just as much damage to our equipment
as the rain! Also, how often did Mr. Weatherman say
it was going to be sunny only to have it rain? Each
DJ brings about $40,000 worth of audio equipment and music to
