What types of parties do you specialize in?
The type of party where everyone dances all night long to their favorite music, and remembers what a great time they had forever!
What type of music do you play?
YOUR type of music! I play music for all ages and genres. It really is your choice, Top 40 Hits, 70's Disco, Country, Rock, Oldies, Latin, R&B, Hip Hop, or a mix of them all. We have an UNLIMITED library of songs to choose from, so if you do have a particular preference for a certain style, just let us know and we will play it for you. Most of the time it depends on what your guests, young and/or old want to dance to!
How do you decide what music to play at our event?
Clients can take as active a role as they desire and can have total control over every song that gets played or you can leave it in my very experienced hands, with a little guidance as to preferences from their side. Requests from guests are always welcome and will play a part in our music selection.
How much control do I have over the music?
Complete control, with professional assistance from my side.
Do you act as the Master of Ceremony?
Yes, I'm very comfortable in the role of an MC. I have over 30 years of experience working with audiences from around the world.
Will you bring a microphone?
Yes, and an additional wireless mic for speeches within the venue.
What kind of space do you need?
Space for my 6ft. table near the dance floor is required. The Music video, Karaoke, and 20' to 60' flown Sound Lighting packages will require extra space.
Do you have lights?
Yes. Specialty lighting that turns a hum-drum reception hall into the latest nightclub.
We also have availability, for those who want a “true” nightclub
experience, with all the special lighting effects and a superior sound system that you would expect from any prestigious nightclub in the area. (not available for all events due to 14' height restrictions)
What about Karaoke?
That option is available for an additional fee. It's not brought to every event, so it needs to be asked for in advance.
Does the Best Man or Maid of Honor come over to you to make their toasts?
No, not at all. We provide a wireless microphone for all speeches. Whoever is making the speech is free to stand wherever they are comfortable.
What type of equipment do you provide?
Having standard equipment is just not good enough for us or for you! I carry only the highest quality, top-of-the-line equipment to ensure clean, crisp sounds for you & your guests. We update our equipment regularly to better serve our clients and their needs. We carry backup equipment and have our entire music catalog digitally backed up. Harmany DJs can handle ANY size event from under 100 to over 15,000 guests.
How do you dress?
This clearly is dependent on the theme of the event. For weddings, I traditionally attend in a Suit&Tie.
Will you assist with the coordination of the reception?
Yes, I will assist with the flow and keeping everything on time, as it is scheduled. If you are not working with a wedding planner I can provide you with a "typical" schedule that can be customized for your needs. I will also help coordinate with all the vendors to ensure everything goes in order.
This truly does help to bring 'Harmany' to your event!
Do you make announcements?
Yes, I am able to make all of the announcements and act as MC for your event if needed.
What if we wanna keep the party going later?
No problem at all, provided we comply with hotel/venue policies. Additional hours are easily accommodated and can be paid for at that time.
What is your payment policy?
A 50% retainer is due at the time of the contract to secure services for the required date. Balance is due on your date and can be paid for by check or credit card through our website at the time of your event.
Does the DJ take breaks?
I may take a short break to get a soda, but never stop the music during a “break”.
Do you provide a written contract or agreement?
Yes, I do. All important details are spelled out in an easy-to-read contract so that both parties have a full understanding of the agreement being entered into and we have all the necessary information to make your event a huge success.
How long in advance should I book your services?
As soon as you decide on a DJ you should reserve your date. The sooner you book and reserve your date the better your chances are of getting the right DJ for your party.
Why should we hire you?
My experience, passion, commitment, style, and "working equipment". I am a fully licensed and insured Professional who takes pride in his work and strives to learn new and exciting ways to improve.
