DJ on Cape Cod ~ Tommy FAQ 2019
What’s the best way to learn more about your DJ service?
Please set up a meeting (call or email for appointment). When we meet, share your wedding dreams, then make your decision. Weekdays are better.
Newly engaged couples get reassured viewing Reviews and Testimonials
We are going to be visiting the Cape soon… may we see you in action at a wedding?
Experience has shown that it’s better not to use a couple’s wedding day to self promote
Will you act as our Emcee?
Yes, and tastefully. Never the center of attention, using fewer words works better than too many
Many couples save precious reception time by only introducing the bride and groom.
The more time you save on your day, which will like go more quickly than you might realize, will allow for more songs to be played.
You might even consider saving time by refraining from the epic-glitzy intro style
And lastly about intros: If your heart is set on introducing your entire bridal party, or you are pressured by certain family members to do so, that’s okay too. If your party is large, it’s better to use FIRST NAMES ONLY because it flows better when everyone is introduced.
You might want to assign a family member to gather everyone up to be introduced to save time.
As the Bride & Groom you’ll likely be using your full name. Just be sure Tommy has your correct pronunciation. You can even spell out your married name faw-NET-ic-LEE if you’d want
Are you willing and open to working with our music list?
Absolutely! And Tommy will make it FUN for you. With your musical input, he’ll help you choose music for every age so everyone is happy. If you like newer songs, you can choose from THE MOST CURRENT MUSIC
How many songs shall we pick?
See “Tips for Choosing Your Music” to see tricks for picking important songs.
Guideline: Choose 10 songs that YOU WILL DANCE TO. Keep it simple by NOT choosing too many songs, or there will not be time for you to hear them
Some couples provide an A list of “must play” list of 10 songs, and sometimes a B list of, “If you have time could you please play these”
You might consider leaving a little breathing room (by not choosing every song yourself) for your guests to fit in a few requests of their own. They are sure to appreciate your kindness
Every wedding is unique so the number of songs at your wedding may vary slightly
Are Song requests OK?
It’s up to YOU and if time permits. Requests can add a fun spark to the spontaneity of your day
May we bring songs you are unlikely to have in your collection?
Yes please bring your unique music. If you own a one of a kind song, Tommy is more than happy to play the song.
You can put your song on your iPhone or iPad and give it to Tommy at your wedding, or beforehand. To make the process easier, just email the song to him in the mp3 format. (Note: Be sure your iDevice is charged, volume up, and song you want cued up)
Are you able to provide music for our wedding ceremony ?
Yes, when your ceremony and reception are at the SAME location. Unable to travel to church or beach
What are your rates?
Will quote when we talk. DJ Rates vary around the Cape and are based on a DJs experience, popularity, talent level, degree of professionalism, and musical strengths
Is DJ overtime (OT) available?
Sometimes overtime is available.
Note: Any possible overtime must first be agreed to by both Tommy and the venue manager on duty
What is your overtime rate?
Your overtime rate will be posted on our agreement
Lower volume of your music is always more pleasing to you and your guests than higher
This is especially true during those times when everyone wants to enjoy a conversation, such as during your cocktail hour. Lower volume become ever more important during your dinner service. Guest normally want to talk not dance at this time
Do you have a cancellation policy?
Yes, view it by clicking this link: Cancellation Policy
