FAQ

We want to keep the vibe classy, fun and all about you and your partner. We know there are plenty of stressful moments when planning a wedding – choosing your DJ shouldn’t be one of them. We’ve created a handy FAQ section to answer your questions. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Shoot us an email here.

We can’t wait to help.

How would you define your approach to DJing?

The approach is simple — we take it back to the basics.  Elegant, classy and sophisticated fun without the kitsch.  We do NOT takeover the spotlight. Rather, we artistically and seamlessly mix your palette of music while reading the dance floor — live.

 

We’ll gracefully conduct announcements and provide the perfect combination of fun and energy.  This is your wedding and we play what you want to hear.  That’s the bottom line.  It’s not about us — it’s about YOU.

Do you have a music specialty?

With over 15 years of wedding DJ experience,  we’re fully capable of playing and mixing every genre of music.  There’s nothing we can’t handle.

How would you motivate my guests to dance?

We approach things very organically by knowing what to play and when to play it.  The power of the music speaks for itself.

How much control do we have over the music?

You have complete control over the music selection.

Provide little direction and we can fill-in the blanks.  Give us a long list of requests and we’ll make it happen.  We’re very easy to work with and can provide professional direction if needed.

Can we submit a “Do Not” playlist?

Yes, absolutely.

 

You have full control of the music and the Do Not Play list is just as important as the Must Playlist.

Can you customize the start/end times of a song?

Absolutely. We can customize the start and end times of any song.

Do you have experience in cultural traditions and customs?

We have a good grasp on various cultural traditions and customs.  However, we gladly welcome your specific requests at any given time.

What does your music library consist of?

Metro has one of the most diverse and eclectic digital music collections, which also includes international music, and we are constantly updating our library with the latest selections. If there’s something we don’t have (which is rare), we can get it – without any additional cost to you.

Do you accept song requests?

What time will you arrive to setup?

Regardless of distance, we will arrive and setup at least two hours before your celebration begins.

 

Your contracted rate includes the setup and breakdown of equipment.  There are no hidden charges or extra fees.  All of the equipment will be setup before your guests arrive. Typically, setup and breakdown is about 40 minutes.

Can you provide a timeline?

Typically, your venue will provide the timeline.  However, we’ve played enough weddings to know that this is not always the case.  We will work with you to design an itinerary that you feel most comfortable with while also providing professional recommendations.

The only way to ensure a seamless flow of events is to have a plan in place.  Granted, timing does fluctuate and there are plenty of times when we work on the fly but it’s best to have something in hand to work off of.

Are you insured?

Yes!

 

We’re fully insured with a $1,000,000 liability policy.  Today, most venues, if not all, require professional DJ’s to carry liability insurance.  We’ll work directly with your venue to supply the appropriate Certificate of Liability Insurance (COI). This is standard procedure.

How many weddings do you have on my date?

We don’t sacrifice quality for quantity.  It’s one wedding at a time.  This allows us to provide exceptional attention to detail & flexibility on the day-of.  Hey, things happen.  If times change, don’t worry — we’re all yours for the entire day and can easily accommodate timeline changes.

What takes place on the day-of?

On the day-of your wedding, you can expect the following:

    • We’ll arrive at least 2 hours before start time.
    • We will work directly with your maitre’d to review the timeline and communicate the details to all other vendors (photographers, videographers, etc.).
    • We understand that timelines do fluctuate and we can easily accommodate any sudden changes on the fly.
    • We’ll perform a sound check (before your wedding begins of course) and fine-tune the equipment to match the room for optimal sound and clarity.
    • We’ll gracefully handle your formalities of choice (if any), including announcements, introductions, speeches, toasts, special dances and anything in between — all of which will be communicated to your vendors and maitre’d.
    • Expect an awesome dance party!

Are you familiar with my venue?

Although we have experience in performing at a large number of different venues, it’s quite possible that we haven’t had the opportunity to perform at your venue.  This is not uncommon.

 

We’ll connect directly with your venue to review all logistics, including floor plans, load-in, timelines, etc.  We got you!

 

Check out a list of venues we’ve performed at here.

No. Breaks are not required.
