Frequently Asked Questions

 

  1. Are you a legitimately licensed business? We are licensed through the state of West Virginia as a company who provides entertainment, in this instance weddings.

  2. Are you insured? We are insured through Fireman’s Fund for our music and equipment. We have a separate policy for our Photo Booth.

  3. Is your music legal? We belong to a music pool called Promo Only. The cost is $40 per month and I am sent the latest radio-edited songs about twice a week.

  4. Who will be my DJ? The DJ will be Michael, Tori or Both! The same one that you have known about since the beginning and grown familiar with through the planning stages preceding your big day. We are not a booking agency that will merely send a DJ to your wedding. We do not bait and switch. You talk with us, plan with us and The same DJ will host your event.

  5. Do you just play music or do you MC my wedding too? I am a professional MC which stands for Master of Ceremonies. This is truly the best description of our job as a professional wedding DJ. A strong presence on the microphone is essential at a wedding or a mobile event. We perform all of the introductions and announcements throughout your event, and take great pride in doing so tastefully and accurately. We are comfortable enough to interject some personality when appropriate, but do so sparingly. If you are afraid of the type of DJ that plays cheesy music and tells lame jokes, then you can rest assured that you won’t find them at M & T Events.

  6. How many weddings have you hosted? Just like any other profession, performing for weddings requires one’s skills to be in top form. If a DJ performs for only a few weddings per year, they may not be at the top of their game by the time your wedding date arrives. Asking how many weddings they do per year will give you an indication of their level of commitment to your type of event.

  7. Do you have backup equipment? Yes. We carry back-up equipment and it is on the table. There are 2 laptops that act independently. If one experiences trouble, the other takes over. We also usually have another DJ on hand to cover music while I am busy staging with you.

  8. What is staging? Staging is giving prior direction or preparing something ahead of time to be done later in the event. Examples are making sure that you are hidden before your grand entrance and talking to your toast makers on proper toasting content, proper microphone technique and where to stand during pictures.

  9. Do you accept requests and play lists? We certainly do as long as they are appropriate requests. Any appropriate request will be honored as long as we have time and it is not on your Do-not-play List. You may also provide a play list if you wish.

  10. How will you be dressed? Michael usually wears a tux shirt with a vest and bow tie. For less formal events, he will choose a shirt and tie. Tori has a number of outfits that are appropriate for different levels of formality.

  11. How early will you arrive? We will typically arrive 2 hours before your event to allow time for last minute floor plan changes, set-up and sound checks. If we are bringing a lot of equipment, it could be as much as 5 hours beforehand.

  12. Do you drink alcohol during my wedding? Absolutely not. This is your day to celebrate with family and friends, and it is our day to entertain you. Our responsibility to you, your guests, and our reputation as professionals is too great to risk, even on the mere perception that we have been affected by alcohol. Don’t worry about us, if you are having a good time, we are having a good time!

  13. Do you require a contract? We most certainly do. A written contract protects both of us. It protects us to make sure we receive what was promised but it also protects you to insure you get the professional that you were promised.

  14. Can we meet with you in person before signing the contract? We wouldn’t have any other way! We are going to be meeting several times during the planing process, so our initial meeting is crucial. You can build trust with us and we can see if we are a match to be creative partners.

  15. May we contact your references? References are a major part of the entertainment business. We would be happy to provide you with emails of our previous clients.
