You should ask these questions to every DJ you interview.


  1. Do you have a business license? Yes, I provide entertainment services. I am also a member of the American Disc Jockey Association ( ADJA) and the Photo Booth Association (PBA)

  2. Do you carry insurance? Yes, I carry a DJ policy for my music and equipment. I have a separate photographer policy for my photo booth.

  3. Is your music legal? Yes, I am sent the latest radio-edited songs about twice a week.

  4. Do you require a contract? Yes, I do. A written contract protects both of us.
  5. Can we meet with you in person to sign the contract? I wouldn’t have any other way! Our initial meeting is crucial. You need to build trust with me and I need to see if we are a match as creative partners. 
  6. Who will be my DJ? Me, my wife Tori, or both! You will talk with me, go through the planning with me and I will host your event. I am not a booking agency that will merely send a DJ to your event. I do not bait and switch. 

  7. How many events have you hosted? I have performed at hundreds of events. Just like any other profession, performing for weddings and events requires my skills to be in top form. By asking how many weddings I do per year, it gives you an indication of my level of commitment to your type of event. 

  8. Do you have backup equipment? Yes, I carry backup equipment. There are 2 laptops that act independently. If one experiences trouble, the other takes over.

  9. What is staging? It is preparing something ahead of time. An event’s success depends on how well it is planned.
