BEWARE of SUSPICIOUSLY CHEAP ENTERTAINMENT. Remember there are no do overs. Your guest will only remember a handful of details. Although every little detail is equally important when is the last time you remembered the chair covers or centerpieces of a wedding. On the other hand your guest will remember if they dance like crazy all night long or if they didn't. So before you ask how much you charge, ask these questions.
Make Sure to Ask these Question's

However, we do like to help make sure you have a night to remember so we recommend our help in making SOME decisions. Yes, your guests can request songs as long as you approve that in our consultation.
Other helpful information to keep in mind when hiring an entertainment company is:
-Will we be able to see the appearance of the DJ/MC and the equipment? (You spend a lot of time and money on the appearance of your wedding, the last thing you want is any vendor that doesn't take pride in their appearance.)
- The Entertainment Company isn't just for music, They control the flow of the whole event to ensure you enjoy and have the best memories that you can. The DJ/MC can make a $30,000 wedding feel like a $30,000 wedding or they can make that $30,000 wedding feel like a $300 wedding.
- As I said above Beware of suspiciously cheap entertainment it can cost you more than just the cost of the DJ . There are many companies out there now that are contracting out other DJ's and the issue with this is you never know what you are going to get, if they even show up. I'm not suggesting to pay for the most expensive company you can find, but if you ask the questions above this will help you make a decision on a company that will provide a top notch service, and the decision will not be strictly based on price.
THE MOST IMPORTANT TOOL YOU HAVE WHEN CHOOSING AN ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY IS RESEARCH AND QUESTIONS....
