We also love easy numbers. It's easy as 1-2-3 to book with Fig:
- Contact us after reviewing our information. One of our friendly event producers will get back to you speedily.
- Set up a meeting with your producer to discuss your event and select your package or artist (with a contract via e-mail to follow when you are ready to move forward).
- Book your package and meet with your DJ before your wedding to plan your party. (With all the time you saved, we encourage you to take up crocheting, finally start a major binge of "Stranger Things," or take that dream vacation to Abu Dhabi you've always dreamed of. Or not.)
WHAT IS A CEREMONY SET UP AND WHY WOULD I NEED ONE? . . .
This is necessary if the ceremony is at a separate venue or a separate area (i.e. outdoors or another room) from the main reception. It requires our team to set-up, run audio during your ceremony and break all the equipment down. Our above packages include hours most commonly used for a reception. Add this on if you want assistance with audio and music during your ceremony.
DO I NEED A WIRELESS MIC? . . .
We recommend a wireless mic for the following situations: a) larger weddings; b) weddings with head or sweetheart tables; c) spaces where the DJ is positioned far away from the couple or the crowd; d) complex table/guest arrangements; e) personal taste and style request.
DO I NEED MORE HOURS? . . .
Book what you think you will need up front, you can always add hours later. Overtime and Extra Hours booked on the day of the event are a bit more then if you book up front. Our artists may have to rearrange schedules on the day of your event and are happy to do so, which is why the premium is different. Anytime our team can plan their schedules in advance we are efficient and we pass that savings on to you.
LARGE SET UPS . . .
If your guest count is 300+ or are looking to create a concert like sound environment contact us to hear our recommendations for your space. Large cavernous spaces like Union Station, Aragon Ballroom and the like require special equipment and a specialized quote. Our deejays are knowledgeable and love geeking out about big set ups, let us help you design your guest experience.
