7. Will you work with my other vendors?


– Yes, Being a Outer Banks local, knowing and having good relationships with other vendors and venues is utter most importance.  The DJ has a big responsbility in helping the evening run smoothly, with continual communication with the “wedding coordinators/planners”, photographers,  caterers, all the way down to the venue managers”


8. Do you play the same songs at all weddings?


-NO, I do live mix and choose songs accordingly, to the crownd, time of the night and the bride the grooms input during our pre-planning.  I give you the chance to submit songs, artist and genres you like, also a do NOT play artist, songs, or genres…  I play clean radio version of songs. Any song that you need I can get, if I do not allready have it. I can also make, mash and mix a custom song if need be.




 9.  Should I spend time choosing my entertainment and DJ?  What will my guest remember about my wedding?


-“Within one week after their reception, 78% of Brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!*


-“When asked 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment (DJ)” *

10. Are DJ services expensive?


Statistics show, typically only 3 to 5% of the wedding budget. “Rates for the DJ industry vary greatly, ranging from $350.00 to $3,500.00 with an US average of $1,200.00 for a 4 to 5 hour reception


 11. How much time do you spend for a single wedding?


– It varies depending on the complexity of the event, I will normally invest 15 to 25+ hours on your special event, but it may appear that you are only paying for “4 hours”.


 12. Should I choose a DJ or a live Band?


-Both have their places at a wedding. A good live band for certain songs sounds beautiful, but my personal opionion is bands are limited to certain songs, variety and genreas they can play.  65% of all couples that choose a band, said, if they had it to do over again, they would have chosen a DJ- (disc jockey!).  If you budget allows you could always have both!




13. What wedding venues or locations have you worked at?


-I have worked at almost all major venues and locations on the Outer Banks. My some of my favorite venues are:  Jennettes Pier, Hilton Garden Inn(Kitty Hawk Pier), Sanctuary Vineyards, Corolla Event homes.
