If you have been charged CT Sales Tax by any DJ- REPORT THEM TO THE CT DRS!!
Can we "see you in action" anywhere?
YES! We have a fantastic collection of Video Montage's put together for just that purpose. Because all of our events are private functions , we cannot invite you to see us at a clients event. The Video Montage page on my website gives you the opportunity to see us at many different events all in the comfort and convenience of your home!
Do we need to tip the DJ?
Tipping is always appreciated. The price you pay isn't the price the DJ earns. This is a service industry- and the DJ get's a set price. Even me- the owner of the company! When it comes to big events, such as weddings or birthday parties, the standard tip is often a percentage of the total fee. WeddingZone suggests a tip of 10% to 15%, while The Knot recommends a tip range of $50 to $150 for a DJ. Whether you tip $20 or $150 it's always appreciated !
Are you insured?
ABSOLUTELY! And you should ask this of all your DJ's! And they should happily supply you and your facility with a Certificate of Insurance if they require it. I can also add your facility as an 'additional insured' under the policy if they require that as well.
What is your cancellation policy?
Sometimes things happen and it has an impact on your event.
I am extremly flexible and I will work with you to come to a mutually fair solution.
Never to call it a cancellation unless absolutely necessary! A better solution is to 'postpone' the event to a new date. I always allow clients to postpone their original date FREE OF CHARGE- as long as the new date is within 6 months of the original date.
This is why a postponement is the best course of action in an emergency.
