• Can I bring a song or music to the Ceremony or Reception? 
    • No. Yes. Well, let's put it this way. It'd be much better for you to email us an MP3 file at least a day before your event, so we can download it, 'preview' it & know (1) the file is free from any 'bots' or viruses and (2) how we need to 'cue' it and/or adjust our treble/base for the song. But if you need to supply us with your own recorded 'song' or a friend's music, please have it on a USB & have a member of your family or wedding party or parents get it to us when we arrive. Fair enough?
  • Do you take requests at our reception?
    • Of course. We put out a 'Request Book' on one of the subbies, with plenty of pens, & we even announce early in the event, if you like, that we welcome them. However, understand: while we carry 50-75000 cuts with us, we don't have 'everything ever recorded'. 'Standards' from the 50's forward, yes. EVERYTHING Country-Rock-Pop-Urban from the last 3-5 years: yes. But if someone asks for ie: Blues Traveler, unless you requested us to bring it: no. Or Twiddle. LOL. That being said, if any of your guests yells out 'Free Bird' & you approve it, we're cool.
  • Do you make announcements, introductions, etc. as part of your duties?
    • Yes. 'Master of Ceremonies' (MC) duties are S.O.P. If you wish, however, that we just shutup & rock the floor: cool. But we always have a mic/stand with us, setup, right next to us, just in case.
  • Do you use strobes?
    • No. Between folks with certain nerve disorders or eyesight issues or other health issues: we don't.
  • Can you stay later than planned?
    • No. Only kidding...we hate going home. In general, it's $100/hour for overtime. If we're more than two hours from home, chances are we made plans to stay nearby, via AirBnB room to keep our costs down. But if we didn't & you want to rock till the wee hours, we'll have to find a local room at your expense or if your event is at a hotel or B+B or venue with rooms, get us one. We'll play till sunup. No kidding. But if we do, you owe us breakfast, too.
  • What time do you arrive to setup?
    • 2.5 hours early to setup & sound check. Then we share our 'Itinerary' (printed versions) that we've worked on with you ahead of time with the photographer, caterer, venue manager. Then we check with you, via cell or text, if there's any last minute changes or additions to ie: intros, toasts, etc.
  • For a wedding, can you play my Ceremony without power?
    • Funny you ask...up here in Vermont, playing so many weddings under tents & 'summits' of ski resorts, often are asked to play the 'Ceremony' music, plus have a microphone/stand, without power. No problem: we have a very special, battery powered system, including a wireless mic, that we can roll over to your ceremony location. And it's not some little junky portable system, it's an Alto (same speakers as we use) system, with a 12" Main, plenty of power (400 watts) & quality sound. What we will bring with it is a seperate 'DJ Stand' which we use strictly for 'remote' ceremony locations & of course, a DJ to play your songs (welcoming, wedding party entrance, bride's entrance, recessional and as well, if the coctail party is at the Ceremony location, music for that too!)
