Frequently Asked Questions


Q •  Do you take song requests during the evening?
A •  Most certainly, in fact we welcome it, we do use some discretion though
Q •  Can we send you a list of songs we love?
A •  Off course yes, but please try and keep it to 50 songs max, otherwise we'll have no idea which songs are really important to you.   If you really like long lists, please highlight your top 20 :)
Q •  Do you have back up equipment?
A •  The short answer is "Yes", the long answer is that our DJs invested in Active Speakers manufactured by leading brands (JBL, RCF and Samson).  Since it's an active system (Each speaker has a built in amplifier) and not run from a central amplifier,   you won't even notice if one of the speakers malfunctioned as the rest of the speakers run independently.    We also prepare for the unexpected, so there's always a spare mixer and laptop in the van as well.
Q • Will the DJ I book play at my wedding?
A • Yes, the DJ you book will play at your wedding. However, we know there's no guarantees in life, therefore we have a professional wedding DJ on stand by permanently in case of unforseen events. We haven't had to call Brendon away from Saturday afternoon rugby yet, and we hope to keep it that way.
Q • What do we need to provide you with?
A • The venue needs to provide a standard trestle table, table cloth and plug point please.
Q • Is dance floor lighting included in your quote?
A • Yes, all our DJs include dance floor lighting as standard.
Q • How long before our wedding should we book you?
A • At any given time, we have bookings up to 18 months in advance.   If you book 12 months in advance the chances are good that one of our DJs will be available for your wedding.
Q • Our wedding ceremony starts at 3pm, how late will you arrive?
A • We aim to arrive at the venue at about 12 o'clock to set up for the ceremony , pre-drinks and reception and have music playing by about 2pm long before your first guests arrive.  For winter ceremonies starting at 2pm, we arrive at about 11am.
Q • How much music do you have?
A •  I always say , it's not about how much music you have, it's about knowing what to play where, when and for whom.    Our music library is extensive though, and chances are that we'll have any song requests your guests can throw at us.   We also have access to iTunes (Dependent on cellphone data coverage off course) 
Q • Do you charge to set-up and break down?
A • No, we don't charge for set-up and break down time.
Q • Can you meet us at our venue before the wedding?
A •  Steven , John , Luc and David are based in Durban,   we normally meet couples at coffee shops in Westville.  Meetings aren't always possible though, especially for our bridal couples based overseas, so a lot of our meetings are conducted over Skype, telephone or email.
Q • How do we book one of your DJs?
A •  Let us know which available DJ you want to book after requesting a quote, we will send booking details once you are ready to book and pay a deposit.
Q • Our ceremony is in a forest and there's no electricity?
A • No problem at at, we have invested in battery powered PA systems for forest ceremonies.
Q • Will you really not play the Macarena?
A • No. There's so much good music out there, so really no need to play mouldy cheese :)
