Fun Rhode Island DJ Birthday Party

I always feel so satisfied after a really fun event, of course, some more than others. It seems to take the right mix of people and music to make an outstanding event like the Fun Rhode Island DJ Birthday Party last week. It was a 60th Birthday party that the guest of honor kept insisting was his 38th Birthday, not his 60th:) He was a little late in trying to convince anybody since we were all present at Chelos Waterfront in Warwick way before him, due to it being a surprise 60th Birthday Party.

The excitement was building as each guest arrived in advance of the guest of honor. There was a nice mix of family, friends and co-workers. Both the guest of honor and his wife are employees at BOSE in Framingham, MA. I am a fan of BOSE since that is really the only sound system I will use as a professional DJ. I use the BOSE L1 with B1 Bass. It was fun having several BOSE employees come up and converse with me about my DJ equipment, a few have never heard the BOSE L1 used by a DJ before and were so excited! I always love showing off the best DJ equipment and the opportunity to demonstrate its incredible sound to techies at BOSE was a blast for me.

3 Easy Steps To Making A Safe Decision Hiring Your Professional DJ

I get asked all the time by friends and family, “How do people know they are getting what they pay for when they hire a professional DJ for their wedding or party that they do not already know?”


I always smile before I reply, “Great question! It is not easy for them and that is why I came up with three easy steps”:


1)    Do Your Homework!

Scouring their website and reading the reviews is not enough. Not even reading the reviews on sites like Wedding Wire, Yelp and The Knot. You have to actually contact a few of their references and ask the questions you really want answers to; “Did he actually listen to what you wanted?” Did he show-up on time and look professional?” “Did he honor the requests of your friends and family?” and most of all, “Was he fun and did everybody have a great time?”

2)    Does Your Professional DJ Feel Right To You?

Professionals DJs need to feel like someone you want to work with and be at your wedding or party. If you don’t like the DJ, you probably do not want them at your wedding or party. It is important you feel comfortable talking, questioning and offering suggestions to your professional DJ. Do they listen and actually take an interest in your ideas?

3)    Does Your Professional DJ Offer A Guarantee?

A guarantee means they are investing in your wedding or party just like you. If they get paid no matter how they perform or whether your friends and family have a great time or not, is not acceptable. You need a guarantee in writing. You need something that holds them accountable, so you know you are going to get what you paid for and more.  Find a professional DJ that has a stake in your wedding or party, so they make sure it is an outstanding success, or they don’t get paid. Trust me, if a professional DJ knows they will not get paid if you are not 100% happy, they will make sure you and every one of your guests are totally happy. They will go to any lengths to make it perfect. Nobody wants to work for free. A guarantee assures you of getting what you want times ten! Only an exceptional professional DJ with plenty of experience at weddings, parties and events will take the risk to offer a guarantee. That is who you want as your professional DJ for your wedding or party!

Of course, a good signed contract with everything spelled out is helpful too. Follow your gut and not let anyone confuse you on what you want. Pay your professional DJ to give you the peace of mind to know you have made the right choice and only worry about the other details, assured you are in good hands with your professional DJ.

Fun Booking Your Party & Wedding DJ

Wow! I have been having so much fun booking professional DJ events for Weddings and Parties lately! It seems every day I am booking another Wedding DJ or Event DJ gig. I meet such great people and love hearing their stories of what and why they need a professional DJ for their Wedding or Event. Of course, my favorites are The Brides and Grooms. They have the best stories to share and the excitement and energy level is off the charts booking your party.


This has been my busiest booking season so far for Wedding DJ and Parties. I am getting the opportunity to provide music, DJ and MC services for Weddings, Sweet Sixteens, Sorority Formals, Anniversary Parties, Birthday Parties, a Reunion and a really neat Fundraiser in Old Bridge, NJ.


I know some professional DJs find the booking your party and coordination of Wedding and Parties boring and a hassle. To me it is the best opportunity to get to know my clients and connect with them before their Wedding or Event. I want to know you so I can perform better and make sure you receive the Entertainer you had in your mind when you decided to hire a professional DJ for your Wedding or Party. I think it is fun and just as rewarding as providing professional music, DJ and MC services at your Wedding or Party.


I am also finding out how many times folks have hired a professional DJ and been really disappointed in the past. This is why I began offering a guarantee. If you are not satisfied with my DJ and MC services, DO NOT PAY ME THE BALANCE OWED! I want your trust, so you can know you are in great shape with your music and entertainment for your Wedding or Party. That is what all professional DJs should offer when booking your party, if they have the self-confidence in their work and the reviews and references to back it.

DJ Wedding Planner Guide for Boston & Rhode Island Weddings

Many Brides and Grooms are frustrated and stressed trying to figure out the specifics of their wedding. As a Wedding DJ in the New Jersey & New York area, I knew I needed to create a simple wedding planner guide for couples.


Of course, most professional Wedding DJs has some version of a wedding planner guide. They are basically the same with little variation. I made certain to focus on making it very simple. Brides and Grooms have enough to figure out and wanted to make it a tool to release stress, not add to it.


Like all documents used for wedding planners, it is a work in process. I invite you to use it, if you find it useful.  If you would like a Word version, please email me and I will send you a copy of the wedding planner guide. If I have left something out, please let me know. My professional experience as a Wedding DJ does not mean I have all the answers, just tons of experience and knowledge.

Why Do You Offer A DJ Guarantee & Most Rhode Island DJs Will Not?

Simple. I know I excel as a DJ and MC and know I can offer a DJ guarantee. I want you to have that same confidence, so you can focus your attention and energy on other aspects of your wedding or event. You worry about getting your guests there and making sure they have food, beverages and everything looks beautiful. I will make sure they have a great time and remember your wedding or party long after. They will have fun and I am condfident in that, so I can offer a DJ guarantee since I am certain you will want to pay me. You are investing in me by hiring me and sending me a deposit. I invest in you by offering a guarantee that states if you are not happy with my performance, you do not have to pay the remainder of the balance. Period.

Why Doesn’t Your Wedding DJ Guarantee Your Wedding?

Rhode Island Wedding DJ Guarantee

I realize this is a large risk on my part, since I am a DJ and Entertainer full-time and it is my primary source of income. But I think you are taking a greater risk by hiring someone you may not know for a one-time event that you have no recourse if I do not meet your satisfaction. This is my way of letting you know, you are covered and it will be great! I stake my paycheck on it!


If I was a part-time DJ that does this on weekends as a hobby, I would not be able to make this guarantee. I would not have the experience and focus that I can provide to every detail.  Together we will create something memorable. I am available to you to make this happen. This is the benefit of being a full-time DJ and Entertainer. I am here for you and will help you coordinate your wedding or event to be just the way you envisioned it. Why would you expect anything less?

The Importance Of A DJ Contract

I have had the opportunity to share experiences with many New Jersey & Boston DJs and party planners over the years.  I still find it incredible that some DJs do not produce a written DJ contract when booking a gig with an event planner. For me, the written contract creates security and a firm commitment by both parties, a sense of mutual trust. I can’t imagine working without one.


I know that most event planners whether they are a bride, parent or professional in the industry will not feel comfortable working without a DJ contract. What many may not know is that the contract is equally important to us as entertainers too. We earn our income through the events we perform and if we are operating with the knowledge that a certain date is booked and have to turn away business, without a formal contract we are putting ourselves at risk too.


Young professional DJs have asked me what I think is important to include in a good DJ contract to insure both parties are protected and feel safe. This is what I generally share with them. I hope it is helpful.


First, what are the terms of the contract financially including the amount of the deposit and when the balance is due? Also is the deposit refundable if there should be a cancellation by the planner? If the deposit is refundable, how far in advance does the event need to be cancelled for this to occur?


What if the professional DJ is sick or any other circumstance that may prohibit them from being able to perform their duties? Do they have a back-up plan and what is it? What about equipment malfunctions? What happens in the event of an equipment failure? Are you the customer protected?


What about music and programming issues? Does the DJ reserve the right to choose not to play a song? What if they do not have a particular song requested at the event?  Can the planner or host provide a song to make sure the guests are happy?


Are there conditions that permit the use of photos or videos? If so, where can they be used?


I think it is important for all of us to discuss the potential roadblocks so we can resolve them in advance together. I have yet to have an event not get booked due to contractual conditions. In fact, I am certain the contract has been the reason I have booked events several times, especially weddings.  All Brides and Grooms want the peace of mind that their Wedding DJ will be present, on time, ready and all equipment functioning at an optimum level when their big day comes. It is too important to leave anything to chance.


These are some of the main reasons I always use a DJ contract when being hired.
