A – Yes, we cover Durban, South Coast, North Coast, Midlands and the Drakensberg. We have even traveled to places such as Kokstad, Ladysmith, Harrismith, Dundee, Port Edward etc.
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.
A – Yes. However please do take your guests into consideration with regard to their different styles of preferred music when compiling your own playlist.
A – Yes. “Cheeze” music is still very much enjoyed at weddings and is often requested.
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.
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 otherwise indicated.
A – We provide a quotation that includes the DJ service, travel & toll fee cost and accommodation (if applicable). Overtime is quoted separately per hour or any part thereof and starts at midnight (depending on the venue), or after the number of hours that was quoted for has been reached. Our standard service includes all necessary audio equipment, cordless mic with stand and dance floor lighting.
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.
A – Yes. We use battery operated equipment that will last for the duration of the ceremony.
A – We usually arrive about 3 hours before the ceremony starts to set up.
A – Yes, the wedding dj is what makes or breaks the celebration. We will continue the party at an extra fee of R 1, 300.00 per hour or ANY part thereof. Payment for overtime is strictly up front in cash and must be made to the DJ at least 30 minutes before overtime commences. This is not negotiable. Overtime will be considered in agreement with the venue. Generally most venues will allow overtime with the cut-off time being 2am. End times are also dependent on Covid-19 Lockdown restrictions and related curfew times where applicable.
