Frequently Asked Questions
Do You Have Liability Insurance?
Yes, we carry liability insurance. We can fax or e-mail a copy of our “proof of insurance” certificate directly to your event location.
TIP: This is a great question to ask of potential DJ’s during your interview process. If they pause, stutter and “um” it’s a sure sign they are cutting corners in their business practices which leaves you and your venue with a liability risk and a possible host of other problems. “Run Forrest Run!”

Do You Provide a Contract?
Yes, and we make it easy! We input your information with event details then send you a .pdf for your signature.
It’s important for both parties to sign an “agreement” to secure your event date and as proof of payment. It’s a great way to communicate concise expectations and have proof of “agreement” in writing.
Tip: Don’t do business with any DJ that doesn’t provide this! So many clients have told us stories of DJ’s that have flaked and left them high and dry! We will always put it in writing and follow through with integrity!
