Frequently Asked Questionsh

What makes your company worth our investment ?


My care and concern for your special event is second only to your own. I am able to bring my experience from thousands of performances to your one special event. This means I make your vision of the celebration a reality. I've been entertaining for over 25 years, but there is nothing old about my company. My equipment is constantly updated with the latest technology. Clients have frequently commented on my high standard of sophisticated, polished and energetic style. The investment you make in my services reflects the expertise and quality I bring to your special event.


Is setup time include in your price ?


You never have to pay for setup or breakdown time. I arrive a minimum two hours prior to your scheduled start time and will setup before your first guests arrive. But it's on my own time. The same applies for breakdown time after your event.



Do you take breaks ?


No,   My services are truly uninterrupted and non-stop. From my scheduled start time until my scheduled end time. I will never pause to take a break. Much unlike live bands that need to stop and rest, I will just keep playing straight through your event. This also includes any overtime requests.



Can we choose the music to be played at our event ?


Definitley !    There are various aspects that come into play to make your event a success, such as the music mix, continuity, timing, DJ interaction, and the ability to "Read the Crowd" The Central Coast DJ will bring together all these important aspects to create the atmosphere you desire.



Can we have a "do not play list" ?


The do not play list is equally important if not more important than the request list itself. Any specific songs or general types of music you absolutely dislike should be on your do not play list. Rest assured that if  a guest requests a song that is on your do not play list.....it will not be played.



What if we want a song that you don't have ?


The  Central Coast DJ has a song library consisting of over 125,000 songs as well as access to itunes 26,000,000 music catalogue. The Central Coast DJ music encomapasses the widest variety of song hits from the 1940's to today's popular songs. It sometimes occurs that I may not have an obscure request in my repertoire. In this case you may supply a CD if you have the recording or I will purchase the song from itunes at "NO"  charge to you.    



How loud do you play the music ?


One of the most common complaints of live bands and DJ's alike is that they play the music too loud. This doesn't have to be that way. During cocktail and dinner  hours (if applicable) the speakers will be strategically positioned for even sound coverage throughout the banquet room at a comfortable level. When it's time to dance the speakers positioned around the dance floor will be played at an appropriate volume while throughout the rest of the room the music will be less predominate enabling your guests to carry on a normal conversation.



Do you carry backup equipment ?


Absolutely, your special event is not a rehearsal. I carry at all times two complete backup systems on-site for all events in the case of an unlikely event.



How interactive are you as a DJ ?


A very familiar question!   often times when a prospective client is looking for the perfect DJ they search for one who fits the level of interaction they're looking for , whether it is conservative or outgoing. The Central Coast DJ actually let's you decide how much interaction you would like. I can be conservative, outgoing, or anywhere in between. By default, I am as interactive as necessary to keep your guests having a good time. Even at my most outgoing level, i still remain totally professional and never steal the spotlight.



How far will you travel ?


The Central Coast DJ will travel anywhere in the surrounding areas of the Central Coast of California, Santa Barbara, and a s far south as Los Angeles, and as far north as San Francisco.



Do you offer a contract or written agreement ?


Absolutely, my contract is straightforward and written in simple terms making it easy to understand before signing. The contract is signed by both parties and offers you a high level of protection and dependibility. With the contract you can be assured that there will be no hidden extra charges or surprises at your event. The signed contract and deposit officially reserves your date and of course an executed copy will be sent to you for your records. if you have any questions or concerns about the terms, please just ask.



What is the deposit and when is the final payment ?


The Central Coast DJ requires a $400 deposit along with a signed contract to reserve the date. The final payment of the remaining balance is due on (or before) the day of your event. The Central Coast DJ accepts cash or personal checks only.



How early should we book ?


Simply put, the sooner the better! Some of the most popular dates can, and do book as early as one year in advance. If you're just starting your planning try to make a final decision as soon as possible to ensure availability, and be prepared to sign a contract as early as 4-12 months ahead of time.


Are your rates negotiable ? 


The Central Coast DJ rates are competitive and are based upon the cost of doing business as well as the value placed on my service. All events are attended to in a professional manner and taken extremely serious. If the price is a bit more than you planned to spend, just remember the old saying "you get what you pay for".
