Just as the title implies, the goal of “Sunshine Entertainment” (SE) is to provide a large variety of professional entertainment services at very reasonable prices, while bringing "sunshine-like" brightness into all my personal interactions with clients, their guests and other participants.
Below is quite a bit of information for you to review, and as they say - "an informed consumer is a smart consumer" - so to get things started, directly below are:
MOST FREQUENTLY Q's ASKED..
** 1) "YES" - Sunshine Entertainment is fully insured, and the venue can be 'additionally insured' if the venue requests it.
** 2) "YES" - You will get 'me' and "only me" as your personal seasoned and experienced and 'professional' DJ, KJ, Sound Tech, Event Photographer, Videographer and/or Dance Instructor - no subcontractors or part-timers are utilized. (This is usually the #1 question I am asked).
** 3) "NO" - I am not a "Club DJ" and do not play continuous- non-stop- same/single tempo- Club DJ format music.... "But" all songs are "clip edited" so there is no annoying "dead air" at the beginning or end of all songs. With a music library of over 150,000 "actual" songs of all forms, and a variety of over 6,500+ "actual" Video Karaoke tracks, I can and will play your "playlist" (see #4 below), and can/will take requests at your event. For corporate events and events where awards are given, I can provide fanfare music clips in addition to appropriate transition music to fill in those 'awkward' 'dead air' moments.
** 4) Music Playlists - This is to make sure we are on the same page - 'playlists' or request lists, are the songs you wish to be played at your event. Again having over 150,000 actual songs that I bring to every event/gig I DJ, I do not play off of any internet 'playlist' provider such as - Pandora, Spotify, etc. Which means - if the internet or WiFi goes down, or starts to 'buffer' at the venue, I will not be affected.
** 5) Music Specialties - For the most part, I am a music "generalist" DJ - with a music library of over 150,000+ songs to date, I can play nearly every format and genre of dance and event music.
** 6) I am based out of Wethersfield, CT and the quotes/prices that are posted/listed here in Thumbtack are "Basic" package prices for "local" bookings (within 15 miles of Wethersfield) If your event is further than 15 miles or a 30 minute drive from my home base in Wethersfield, CT - please expect some time/travel charges. But!! - - I do reduce and many times waive the mileage charge for events over $600.00).
** 7) "YES" - I am a Professional "Event" photographer and videographer and not a "Wedding" photographer or videographer. I can provide 'raw' 'unedited' non-typical, high quality, candid, event style photographs for all types of special events.
** 8) "YES" - I have "FM Wireless" and "Bluetooth" music broadcast capabilities...
** 9) "YES" - I am also an (Emcee) MC/Host and 'day of event' coordinator (with caterer, photographer, Videographer, & Venue staff).
** 10) "YES" - if you book me as your wedding/event DJ, I will provide you not only with event, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception timeline worksheets, but will also include a variety of reception activity templates (music games, DJ Games, Centerpiece give away ideas, cocktail hour activities, specialty dance ideas, etc.) to help "us" plan and keep your event on track.
** 11) "YES" - I have multi sound system and multi location setup capabilities. I can provide multiple location sound system setups at your venue - perfect for weddings requiring music and sound with no "dead air" at three or more separate locations at the venue - such as the ceremony location, cocktail hour location, dinner location, and finally the dance/party location.
** 12) and.. "YES" - I am a single person multifaceted enterprise and when I respond back to your inquiry with a quote, that means that I am "currently" available at the time you submitted your inquiry/post - many times my availability window is short and could get booked (and have been booked) at any time by someone else without notice. Sadly many potential clients who have procrastinated, have lost out on their requested date.
** 13) "YES" - I can provide Backline (small Concert) Sound Reinforcement services and sound equipment - I provide 3 different levels of services/equipment to match your needs for - small, medium, and large events, concerts, and/or performances (dance recitals, choir performances, solo instruments, concert bands, orchestras and of course, your typical Rock, Country, Hip/Hop performers.
** 14) and a couple "freebies" - 1st) - for your wedding, corporate event, party, etc. I can provide "FREE" Video Karaoke services at no extra charge, and 2nd) - as a dance instructor, I can provide/include dance lessons (Swing, Line Dance, Country, Ballroom, Latin) during your event, and/or a private lesson before the day of your event. A great prep for bride & Groom's 'first dance.'
