Please read the information below give you an idea as to what is involved in constructing your quote, before we have a meeting regarding your event.
Then email us some basic information about your plans so far – starting with the date and location, how many guests approximately, as well as a few words about what you envision for the big day.
We do not take bookings without a face to face discussion (can be conducted over Skype or FaceTime etc) as we want to make sure we are the right fit for you.
This discussion usually takes around 45 minutes to cover everything, and your quote will be sent shortly afterward.

The Finer Detaails
The day of your wedding we work approximately from 11am, until 1am. Those fourteen or so hours are the fun part of the job!
Aside from this time spent on the day, which entails DJ-ing for you, testing equipment, packing the car, setting up and then packing down – our fee also goes toward the purchase, constant upgrade and replacement of high quality PA gear and DJ equipment… and partly contributes to the many hours spent researching music, answering phone calls and emails, bookkeeping and running the business.
Apart from providing awesome music for the event, it is important to us that your Run Sheet makes sense and has a good flow to it, so that your guests are relaxed and comfortable. We work closely with your MC so that they can enjoy their night without having to be worried about the time or what is happening next (or otherwise we are more than happy to MC for you). Our service really entails event management.
Our past clients all feel our service is excellent value, please have a read of testimonials on Google or on our Facebook page
We are providing a professional service, we are 100% reliable (always turn up!) and most importantly for the vibe on your wedding day – we enjoy our job. Aside from the great music, having a DJ dancing and enjoying your party is much better than someone sitting down looking bored on their phone all night.
If this pricing is a little confusing or you require some more information, please don’t hesitate to call or email.
We are happy to meet with interested clients face to face – absolutely no obligation, happy to help and see if we are the right service for you.
