Useful information

The Ceremony

We use a separate PA system for the wedding ceremony. This is to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted transition between proceedings of the ceremony and reception.

The following will be provided:

  • Selection of appropriate background music when your guests arrive
  • Processional and recessional music of your choice
  • Song of your choice as you sign the register
  • Backing track for selected hymns
  • Professional cordless / roaming handheld microphone or lapel microphone for the wedding officer
  • PA system for live musicians who need sound equipment for their instruments and vocals indoors or outdoors

Forest & Beach wedding ceremonies

These wedding ceremonies are beautiful with often spectacular surroundings. We will provide a battery operated PA system complete with a wireless handheld microphone and a wireless lapel microphone for the wedding officiant in areas where power is unavailable.

Music for pre-drinks (Canapés)

After the ceremony the bridal party will be away on their photo shoot for about 2 hours or so. During this time your guests will mingle whilst enjoying canapés and drinks. We will provide appropriate background music for your guest during this time.

Professional cordless / roaming handheld microphone or lapel microphone for the MC and speeches

    • High Quality full range sound system as well as dance floor lighting
    • Selection  of  appropriate  background  music  throughout and variety of dance music for everyone to enjoy.

    • Appropriate  background  music  will set the mood and we will have your special song ready for your big entrance as newlyweds.
    • We will assist you with song ideas for the formalities as well as dance music for the evening.
    • We would also like to meet with you about a month or so before your wedding day to discuss and finalize everything.
    • Our quotation is a set fee up to MIDNIGHT, but depending on the venue we will continue the party at an hourly rate thereafter.

A – Yes, although we frequent the Midlands and Durban areas, we have traveled to places such as Kokstad, Port Edward, Dundee etc.

Q – What equipment do you have?
A – We use professional quality brand audio equipment specifically manufactured for mobile DJ use. Depending on how many guests will be attending your wedding and the size of the venue we will typically use 2 x 15″ Two-way speakers with 2 x 15″ or 18″ bass bins, an all in one dance floor lighting system and cordless microphone with a stand for speeches.

Q – Do you take song requests or a personal playlist from the bridal couple?
A – Yes. However please do take your guests into consideration with regard to their different styles of preferred music when compiling your own playlist.

Q – Do you play “cheeze” music?
A – Yes. “Cheeze” music is still very much enjoyed at weddings and is often requested.

Q – Do you have back-up equipment?
A – Yes. In the unlikely event that we do experience an equipment malfunction, we will have the means to continue playing music. Should the venue experience a long term power failure, we would be able to continue for 2-3 hours longer on battery power. It would be advisable to check with your venue regarding availability of a generator should the need arise. 

Q – What do you need from us on the day?
A – A small table for the ceremony near an electrical plug point (unless we would have to use battery powered equipment where there is no electricity available). A standard trestle sized table with table cloth near an electrical plug point and 2 chairs for the reception

A – Yes, unless indicated otherwise.

Q – What is included in your quotation?
A – We provide a quotation that includes the DJ service, travel & toll fee cost and accommodation (if applicable).

Our standard service includes all necessary audio equipment, cordless mic with stand and dance floor lighting.

Q – What music do you play?
A – We play music that will get the guests on the dance floor and keep them there. A good mix of rock n’ roll golden oldies, sing-a-longs, cheeze, lang arm and modern dance floor hits usually does the trick, but it all depends on the night and type of crowd.
