truly memorable celebration.
How loud do
you play the music?
One of the greatest complaints about bands and DJs is that they play the
music too loud. This should never happen! Controlling the volume is
one of the skills of an experienced DJ. The speakers are positioned for
proper sound coverage to allow the music to be powerful enough for
dancing and yet comfortable for conversation throughout the rest of the
or events may require additional sound reinforcement or may even require
an additional speaker to be in a separate room. All this is possible.
The sound system is set up to fit the occasion. Your music is presented
with fullness and depth. The sound quality is superb.
Do you take breaks?
No. Unlike a band there are no breaks... the music is
Can we choose the music to be played?
Yes, of course you can. This is your day. Your favorite music
is a big party of the event. Your music choices are very important and
Charleston Wedding Entertainment's signature "Pre-event planning" will
address your choices and preferred music. Keep in mind the music and the
flow of songs is planned to enhance the various elements of your event.
Through many years of experience Mike has learned that to keep the
atmosphere happy and the dance floor moving there are many factors. This
includes not only the music played, but when and how the songs are mixed
together and the interaction of the Master of Ceremonies. In the
“planner” you may provide a list of "must play" songs and a list of
"play if possible" songs. Your preferences and song selections are
always given the highest priority!
Is there any
extra charge for setup time?
No, there is no charge for the setup or disassembly time. Generally,
arrival time is 60-90 minutes before starting. If you require an earlier
set up time, a small charge may be apply. The sound system is set and
checked and ready to go before the first guest arrives.
Can we have
a "do not play" list?
Absolutely. And, you can be assured the greatest care is taken to avoid
any selections that could be considered beyond the limits of good
What if we
want a song that you don't have?
If the selection is not in the current library, every effort will be
made to acquire it. Of course you are welcome to provide “special”
music on CD in our planning phase.
Do you carry backup equipment?
Yes. Even though the very finest “State-of-the-art” sound equipment is
employed (Bose, Mackie, Sony) a good DJ is always prepared. Critical
backup equipment is always brought along.
Do you offer
a written agreement or contract?
The “contract” is straight forward and written in plain English with no
“fine print” so that you can understand the terms. It is signed by both
parties and gives you the highest level of protection and
dependability. The deposit and signed agreement officially reserve your
How much is
the deposit and when is final payment due?
Normally a $200 deposit is required along with the signed agreement to
reserve your date. The total fee for the service will be on the
contract. The balance is due on the date of your event. Checks, cash,
money order are accepted. Taking care of payment in advance works well
as most clients would like to have everything taken care of early so
they can relax and enjoy the event.
