Can we check you out before we make our decision, or can we meet with you before hand? It is always a good idea to audition a DJ before you hire, but remember the music you hear might be what the DJ needs to play for that crowd, and the music mix for your show might be entirely different. We would be happy to sit down with you and consult one/one before you book us to increase your comfort level. Many clients hire us based on our reputation alone but it's still a good idea to audition first if at all possible.
Do you have back up equipment or plans in case of equipment failures? Because this is a 'once-in-a-life-time event' we build redundancy into our systems- a total failure would be quite rare, but on those occasions a back up system is on stand by so disruptions are kept to a minimum. In only the most extreme situation would we be unable to complete our promises to you.
Do you have lights, smoke generators and lasers? We bring lighting, but at most weddings the critical factor is not how much equipment the DJ sets up; rather it is their skill in finding the right mix of music to match the crowd. No one will ever leave an event saying "The DJ was really bad, but the laser light show sure saved the night!" Smoke generators are prohibited in many venues; they are cool, but we are promoting portable music, not portable disco. And with a smaller set up we can be up and running faster with less intrusion and smaller space requirements, and hopefully keep the price more affordable.
Do you take requests? Absolutely...more importantly we PLAY THEM! You say it, we play it! As part of your event planning you can send us a list of songs that are 'must plays'. You can also request us NOT to play certain songs. It's your show- we're just there to help facilitate a good time and keep things moving.
How much do you charge? When people ask how much we charge, tongue in check I tell them we charge by the year, not by the hour... in other words, by expertise! Why take a chance on a cut rate DJ service? Shop around and get quotes but you will find Jock In A Box is an exceptional entertainment value. We are open to discuss quotes you get from other DJs.
Who will be my DJ? DJs are assigned based on which DJ's style and personality matches your needs. If you have a preference for a certain staff member let us know, we can schedule, but not guarantee that DJ will be at your event. Ideally you will meet your DJ at your event planning meeting when we go over final details.
Are you insured? Yes, and incorporated in the state of Wisconsin.
