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 DJ’s 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 DJ’s 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 not played?

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 school’s administration.

Do your DJ’s drink at weddings?

NO.

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 CD’s, 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 DJ’s 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.

What time do you arrive to set up?

At least one hour prior to your start time. You may request an earlier start time if you wish.

Ok, we would like to book. Now what?

One of our reps will contact/meet you and go over all your details, write up a contract, and secure the date for you. The deposit is 25% of the total cost. Upon receiving your deposit, you will be able to gain access to our event planner and music listings. We will chose the appropriate DJ Entertainer approximately 6 weeks before your event. All planners and music requests are due one week before your event.

Are you insured?

Yes. Through the CDJA, we have a 2 million dollar policy.
