Here are some of the questions that I’m frequently asked. If you don’t see an answer to your question in this website, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an E-mail –
Q: Where do you DJ?
A: Everywhere. Seriously. Obviously, I DJ at a lot of actual event venues, but through the years, I’ve also set my gear up in tents, barns, back yards, dining rooms and closets… On boats, balconies, and a massive desk that bounces up and down all day because it’s made out of a giant spring… At town halls, farms, museums, schools – you get the point. You can click here to see the long list of places that I’ve DJ’d at already.
Q: Can I see a list of your music?
A: I’m sorry, but I just can’t print a list of every song in the world. I carry more than 40,000 songs with me to events and I’m also hooked up to the internet while I DJ, so my music selection is virtually unlimited.
Q: What do you wear when you DJ?
A: Well…As a nudist…just kidding. My attire varies, depending on the event. Sometimes I’m asked to coordinate my shirt or neck tie with a wedding’s color scheme and I’m happy to do so. A groom once asked me specifically to wear a black bow tie instead of a long neck tie simply because he’d “always imagined the DJ wearing one.” I’ve also been known to participate when hired to play for masquerades, themed events or costume parties. I was a DJing Waldo at a Halloween wedding in 2015.
Q: How many events do you book yourself to DJ in one day?
A: A grand total of one.
Q: Have you ever double-booked yourself or missed a wedding that you were supposed to DJ?
Q: Are you insured?
A: Yes. I maintain a mobile entertainer’s liability policy because some venues require it. I’m happy to prove your venue with proof, should they require it.
Q: Ever show up late to DJ?
A: Never. Actually, funny story: I had loaded my van to DJ at a wedding one day, but when I backed out of my driveway, I could see that my engine coolant was in a big puddle on the ground. Obviously, I had no time to spare, but the van would blow up if I tried to drive it to where I was going. That was the day that I figured out how to cram all of my gear into my other car at the time: a very, very crowded Saturn sedan. I arrived to set up at the wedding early.
That van and that Saturn have long-since been replaced.
Q: Do you drink while DJing?
A: Yes. Seltzer water…and sometimes coffee.
Q: Have you ever caused a power outage?
A: Ha ha…no…actually yes, but not while DJing.
Q: Do you mind DJing outdoor events?
A: I love DJing outside! Just plleeaaase make sure that I’m under cover (a tent, pavilion, etc).
Q: Will you play guitar or piano live for my ceremony?
A: You don’t want that… I’m really not that good.
Q: Do you require for us to provide you with a meal?
A: I don’t require that you feed me, but I certainly appreciate it. 🙂
Q: When you make announcements, do you talk in a phony radio-announcer-voice?
A: No no no…I talk on the mic using my normal voice.
Q: Are you comfortable at same-sex weddings or gay-oriented events?
Q: What was your most embarrassing moment from DJing?
A: When I finish writing my memoirs, you’ll see that I embarrass myself too often to pick favorites.
Q: Do you do karaoke?
A: I’d rather babysit a flock of running, scissor wielding, sugar-high four year olds. I can refer you to a few great DJs who do, though.
Q: Do you use records and turntables?
A: Umm…no. I’m not that kind of DJ.
Q: Will you match another DJ’s lower price quote?
Q: Do you play songs with swears?
A: Only if it’s appropriate for the event. I’m guessing that 99.8% of my library is comprised of radio edits.
Q: Do you DJ alone or with Assistants?
A: For some reason, I prefer to DJ alone. *shrug*
Q: Howdy! I’m a complete stranger from the middle of nowhere Nebraska! You have a song that I’ve been looking for since ‘nam! Can you E-mail it to me?
A: Absolutely not.
