DJ 10 Commandments
And GOD said unto Moses, “These are my commandments to party.” Moses replied, “You mean rules?” “Not exactly”, God rumbled, and so began the initiative to form a more perfect Disc Jockey and all who followed this divine list of instructions became apostles, even to become known as professional mobile disc jockeys.
1. Thou shalt not Hire someone with cheap equipment:
There is a difference between home audio equipment and professional disc jockey’s. We promise that our equipment will not cause electrical fires, cracking sounds or high-pitched tones. However, we cannot offer any disclaimers for the guests.
2. Thou shalt be LICENSED & INSURED:
We take our business seriously and carry all required city licenses and carry liability insurance.
3. Thou shalt come with a Booking Agreement:
All conditions and terms of our booking should be set into an agreement. With a written contract, everything is spelled out, including choice of music, duration of event, and compensation. Everything is spelled out in black and white,.
4. Thou shalt offer a large MUSIC selection:
Any eclectic music enthusiast may have a large selection of music BUT a professional will have an entire library. This enables us to provide music for any occasion.
5. Thou shalt field ALL REQUESTS:
We can locate even the most obscure tunes at a moment’s notice and will ALWAYS field all announcements.
6. Thou shalt field ANNOUNCEMENTS and REQUESTS:
A professional entertainer can locate even the most obscure tunes at a moment’s notice. Then, they offer key announcements at the correct times. Or, they can rearrange the announcements for practical jokes. They can also tap dance, juggle fire and swallow swords during announcements – if that is your desire.
7. Thou shalt take Pride in one’s Attire:
Just as equipment makes a big difference, so does attire. A professional should have appropriate and proper apparel at no extra cost.
8. Thou shalt provide References:
Any experienced professional, in any profession, can provide ample references from satisfied clients. We attempted to get references from people that were not totally satisfied with our services but that never happens. Everybody loves us and has beautiful things to say.
9. Thou shalt always have a Timely Arrival:
Professionals always arrive at least 1 to 1.5 hours ahead of schedule-not only to move the equipment and set up for the event but, to field last minute changes in the event. Sometimes we’ll even get to an event earlier.
10. Thou shalt always have a Backup Plan:
In the rare event that your entertainment is not able to perform at your function, we will have a substitute of equal professionalism. We have backup equipment as well.
