Frequently asked questions

  • Will you (Marc) be our DJ? Possibly. I book on a first deposit/sign basis. If I have your date open I will book myself first, all following events booked for the same day will be assigned another talented DJ.
  • Will our specific DJ be doing any other events on the day? NO! One DJ is assigned to one event maximum per day.
  • Do you offer a legal contract that we both can sign? Yes and no event date will be held until a deposit has been made accompanied by our signed agreement.
  • Can we be involved in the music planning process? Absolutely and I encourage it. You can be as involved as you like in the music planning aspect of your day. As well as consultations by phone, email and in person, I will set you up with a client login where you will have access to and be able to take advantage of the online planner, event timeline and music request list tools. Check out the demo account. The login is December 31, 2019 and the password is "demo" (without the quotes) In the planner there are specific places for ceremony music and other specialty dances and songs like introductions, the first dance, cake cutting etc. There is also a music request tool where you can build a list of "Must Play", "Play if Possible" & "Do Not Play" songs. I suggest 10-15 "Must Play" and as many as you like "Play If Possible". This is just to give your DJ an idea of what you like and don't like. Using your list as well as your guest request list if you choose to use that feature, your disc jockey will create a night that works right for you and your guests.
  • Can we contact any of your references? Most definitely
  • What is your experience and what will our DJ wear? All of our DJs have at least 10 years experience and come properly attired.
  • Do you take any breaks? Most of the time from start to finish there has to be somebody behind the board at all times, controlling sound levels and making sure everything is running smoothly so No, the only time your DJ will not be where he is supposed to be is for a quick washroom break.
  • Do you bring backup equipment? We have a minimal backup plan in place. All of our equipment is properly maintained and when we know it is time to be updated and replaced we do so. If you feel you would like us to provide a backup system, please ask that we do and we will gladly provide it.
  • Do you display a banner? This depends on what service you are booking. For weddings no, unless it includes karaoke and you want it displayed on a screen for everybody else to see. The splash screen that comes up in between singers has our A1 Karaoke logo and other information on it and that is the only place any in event marketing takes place.
  • How do you handle song requests? We have an online system in place and also accept live requests on the day. We try to program in as many requests as possible while using our expertise and keeping the vibe of the room.
  • Do you require a deposit? Yes I require either a 25% or 50% deposit to hold your date. The balance is not due till the date of your event.
