Are you professionally trained?
Some DJ companies claim that their staff is
professionally trained. In reality, they do the
training themselves - the senior people train
the new people. Based on that, then yes, We
are professionally trained. During our initial
years as a DJ. We worked for an established
DJ company. We received training from our
parents who have been in the business since
the early 1980's, They are still in thebusiness
today, and also work for our company.We have
attended servile Dj conventions, and training
seminars.We subscribe to, and read, several
trade magazines including DJ Times, Mobile Beat
and DJEntertainer. We are a very active
participant in two internet based DJ discussion
What happens if you get sick?
We would have to be very sick to risk our reputation by getting a substitute to cover
for us, after a client has put so much trust in
our company.Because We are a family owned and operated company. We have four other Dj's on call so in the slim chance one of us
get's ill, your special occasion would be covered.
How are you different from other disc jockeys?
Many DJs put on such an elaborate show, that
they make themselves the center of attention at
the event. We feel that doing that will take too much attention away from the guest(s) of honor. If people are partying and on the dance floor, then we certainly will keep those people entertained and occupied. If the event looks as if it's dying, We will try to liven up your guests.
What is your experience?
How many events have you done?
We have done thousands of events, not only for our company but for others as well. We started in the early 1980's. Starting with only cassette tapes and then instrumental tapes for karaoke in the early 90's. Then we started Karaoke in 1991 with Laser disc.
How do you motivate the group to participate
Some people will never dance. Others may
dance no matter what song is being played.
Then there are those people that need a push
to get started. For them I play songs like the
Electric Slide and Macarena. Songs that do not
require a dance partner. Additionally, I will get
on the dance floor and lead the beginning of these dances if necessary. Once on the dance floor, I will play great party songs - the kind of songs that almost everyone knows and loves. In addition to merely playing music, if desired, I can help coordinate some party games that will make
your event different than the average event.
How do you set the tone of the event?
That really depends on you and your desires. We can play upbeat party music all night long, or startwith mellow music at the beginning and during dinner,and build towards the high energy party music later on in the evening.
Do you specialize in a specific genre of music?
We do not specialize. Instead, We have a wide variety of music, including pop, top-40, dance, disco, hip-hop, rock and oldies. We tailor the music we play to the audience. A Wedding or Anniversary party may get a lot of oldies, rock and/or classic disco, while a Bar/Bat Mitzvah or Sweet 16 might get a lot of top-40, dance and/or hip-hop.
Do you take requests?
Yes - It's your party, not mine. We ask for a request list when a customer sends us the contract. We do our best to have every song on that list at the party. In addition, We want the customer to be happy
Can I provide my own music?
Yes. But on CD only.
What is your standard attire?
Our attire is appropriate for the event. You as the customer tell us what attire to wear.
What time will you arrive?
We normally arrive at the facility about one hour
before your event is scheduled to begin. That is
with our basic services, Premium services may
require up to two and a half hours. This is far more time than we need to set up, but it allows us to take our time, and not have to get crazy and sweaty trying to rush. Once we are set up, We begin playing quiet background music right away as your early guests start to arrive.
Are you insured?
Yes, up to two million dollar liability and property
Do you require a deposit?
What if there is a cancellation?
Deposits are about 20%, payable by check,
cash or credit card. Balances can be paid by
check, money order or credit card one week
prior to the event or cash prior to set-up on the
day of the event. For legal reasons, the deposit
is called a "Retainer Fee" on the contract.
Due to an inability to sell services to another buyer on the same date, the buyer is responsible for the full contracted price once the contract is signed. However, the balance due will be determined on a sliding scale based on the reason for the cancellation, the amount of time provided to Boyte Booking Entertainment Agency to resell the scheduled date to another buyer, and whether or not the party is rescheduled with a booking for Boyte Booking Entertainment Agency.
