What type of equipment do you use ?
We use top of the line professional DJ equipment across the board.
Will the DJ play requests?
Our DJs only take requests if you allow it. If allowed, our DJs “filter” requests, meaning they will not play a song that you specifically asked them not to play or music from a genre you asked them not to play. If someone makes a request that fits in well with what the DJ is playing at the time and with the music you want, then the DJ will try and play it.
Can we request songs for the DJ to play?
You are able to pick which songs you definitely want to hear, and ones you do not want to hear, for your event. We have an online planning system for this.
Can we provide our own music for the DJ to play?
Sure you can provide all music using out customized client mobile app, but we would like to get the music file(s) in advance of the event. If doing this, please consider the audience attending your event.
What are your payment terms?
A non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking and the remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the event date. Payments can be made through our online planning system, PayPal account, or by mailing a check.
Do I tip the DJ?
We do not include gratuity in the final contract price. 10-20% is generally recommended if your DJ did a great job, but it is entirely up to you.
Will the DJ play overtime if needed?
Yes, DJs are able to play past the contracted time, but payment is due at that time if at all possible.
When should we book a DJ?
A good time frame is at least six to twelve months out for a wedding. Less for other events. However, we have DJs available for last minute events as well.
Should we feed the DJ?
You are not required to feed the DJ through the venue. However, if you choose to include us in your guest count, most venues will give you a vendor price which is usually half the price of your guests. If you decide not to include your DJ in your list to the venue, a $25 dinner fee will be included in your final payment due.
What other services do you offer?
We offer ceremony audio, lighting (uplighting & dance floor lighting), and photo booths.
How many songs should I request?
We would like for you to at least give your DJ 20-30 songs of different genres and artists you would like to hear, as well as songs/artists you don’t, so your DJ has an idea of what music you’d like for the different parts of the event.
How long have your DJs been DJing?
Our DJs at Poetic LVL Entertainment have a minimum of 5 years’ professional DJing experience.
