Frequently Asked Questions
Will you be the DJ at my wedding?: YES - I am not a contractor or a large entertainment company. You will get me.

Do you offer a written contract?: YES - A contract establishes my obligation to you and outlines what will be required for our success. By outlining my setup requirements and other factors related to my performance no one should be surprised.

Can we meet before signing contract?: YES - A face-to-face meeting will help you judge for yourself whether we are a good match for each other.

How long have you been a wedding DJ?: From 2012

How many weddings do you do each year?: The company I worked for did 88 events last year.

What separates you from your competitors?: I care to take the time to listen to you and make your vision come true. I take pride in my work and I strive to give a unique service design specific for you.

Do you MC and handle all anouncements?: YES - Public speaking is my background, and the MC at the end of my name stands for "Master of Ceremonies".

How do you motivate guests to dance if no one is dancing?: Any event will have its natural ups and downs. I use the microphone to “energize” the guests and motivate them to dance along with careful song selection. When I see a natural dip in energy I am ready to change gears and shake up the reception to re-energize the entire crowed. This is one of the things we will talk about in our face-to-face meeting.

What happens if you cannot make it to the wedding?: I am a member of a local DJ association, and through networking with other DJ I can provide backup service for me in the event of an emergency.

Can we watch you perform before booking?: NO - Just as you would not want any uninvited guest at your wedding, please respect that for my other clients. You can see pictures of some of my past events on my web site or visit me on FaceBook, look up Alex Howell MC.

Can we call your references?: Yes - Please ask for my list

How much involvement can we have in music selection?: I urge you to supplement my choices with a small handful of your favorite songs. Or if you want to choose the majority of the music, then I will use my ability to make it all work.

Can we request music on your website?: Yes - That is the preferred way.

Do you take requests the night of the wedding?: YES - I am happy to do so. I will then compare that with your "do not play list".

When do you arrive to begin setup/preparation?: My personal and contractual policy is to arrive at least an hour and a half before your scheduled start time. However at times the venue will decide how much in advance I can get access to the site.

What type of clothing do you typically wear to weddings?: In the majority of my events I wear a black suit with either a white or black shirt and a tie. However if the groom will be wearing a tuxedo, then it can be appropriate for the me to wear one to. This is your choice, the pictures on this web site is an example of how I will show up for your wedding.

What do you require to secure the date (contract/deposit)?: Sign and deliver the contact and pay the deposit go $300.

Do you charge for overtime? If so, how much?: Yes - If the time is outside of the contract I will. My general rule is $100 an hour.

Do you require a meal?: I will happily accept one if you happen to offer.

Are you insured? If so, how much liability coverage?: Yes - $1,000,000

Do you take breaks?: NO - I might step away from the DJ booth to use the restroom and possibly eat a meal quickly in another room, however there will be no breaks in the music at any point during the reception unless it's in the timeline.

Do you drink alcohol or smoke during the wedding?: NO - I do not smoke and I consider it unprofessional to drink while working.

What kind of equipment do you use?: I use a Apple MacBook Pro for my computer and the program Virtual DJ to run the show. The MacBook is then connected through USB cable to a Denon DN-MC6000 and then to a T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine before running into (up to two) Bose L1 Classics speakers. This is the highest grade equipment you will find.

Do you have backup equipment?: The components I have chosen have been designed for two levels of redundancy. So if one goes out I have a few more ways to still push out the music.

Do you bring a wireless microphone?: YES - For my wireless microphones I have both a SHURE BLX PG58 and SHURE BLX PG185.

Do you have lighting? If so, what kind?: YES -  As part of any package I can light the dance floor. I have two CHAUVET Mini 4 Bar 2.0 I offer as part of your package at no more cost.

Do you advertise with a sign or banner during weddings?: NO - When I do a good job for you I will hope you will spread the word about me.

What is your cancellation policy?: If Client has to terminate Company’s services, the Client agree to the following conditions: (1) more than 90-days but less than 120-days prior to «Date», 75% of the total fee «Tot» will be refunded, (2) more than 60-days but less than 90-days prior to «Date», 50% of the total fee will be refunded, (3) more than 30-days but less than 60-days prior to «Date», 25% of the total fee will be refunded, (4) more than 1-day but less than 30-days prior to the event date, no refund will be issued.
