Frenquently Asked Questions (and some helpful advice!)
How will my DJ be dressed for my function?
Your DJ will dress either in a Tuxedo or a suit.
For all other events, it is business casual.
Suit & Tie is standard at wedding ceremonies
and receptions. Some DJs will actually wear a tuxedo upon
request. If you have a dress code that you would like the DJ to
adhere to, (such as a themed wedding) please let us know. At other
events it is business casual, however, you can make a wardrobe request
if you like!
Are we required to provide a meal for the DJ?
Check with your banquet hall to see if they provide
a vendor meal. A Vendor meal is less expensive. It is not necessary
to provide your DJ with a full course meal. If a meal is not provided
to your DJ, please allow 45 minutes for a meal.
Where do you get your music from?
As You Like It subscribes to a CD DJ pool called
Multi Music, who provides thousands of DJs new music each
month. More information is available at www.multimusic.ca
Some last names are hard to pronounce in my
bridal party. What do you recommend?
You could have your own MC to announce the names,
and the DJ can take over after that. Also, you could just do first
names only. Although we do strive for accuracy, we cannot take responsibility
for mispronunciation of last names.
Can we submit a list of songs to be played and
Absolutely, in fact, we encourage it. Some clients
prefer to put emphasis on the Do Not Play List. One
recommendation we do suggest is that you think of previous relationships,
was there a song that reminds you of a former relationship? Please
tell us! The last thing we want is to do unknowingly play a song
that reminds you of a former flame! Does the Bird Dance make your
skin crawl? Do you love doing the YMCA? Tell us.
What approach should we use while selecting
songs? What advice do you have?
For wedding receptions, one way to approach it
is to use our music planner and pick songs that you would like to
hear. Also, between 9pm and 1am, about 50 songs will be played on
average. Best advice: select about 25 songs, and leave some room
for the DJ to pick songs and allow some room for requests from your
guests. Ultimately, you can pick all the songs you wish!
For school dances, ask the students and compile
a playlist. Be sure to select songs that do not conflict with your
Do your DJs drink at weddings?
Do you provide emergency back up?
Yes. DJs and equipment are provided either by us
or by another DJ company that we are friendly with. At the reception,
we carry back up CDs, CD Players and microphones.
Are we required to tip our DJ?
No. However, if you do feel the need to acknowledge
superior service, that is up to you. Our DJs usually use that
gratuity to cover minor expenses, like gas and dry cleaning. Regardless,
we are just happy to be your DJ service for your wedding reception!
Can we pay you the day of the reception?
Yes, in the form of certified cheque or cash. We
also accept payment Interac Email Money Transfer the last business
day before the event.
