Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.s) for Soul Reminisce DJ Service
What type of music do you play?
We have an extensive hand-picked selection of our best clean-cut radio-friendly versions of songs. We specialize in Old School, New School, Hip-Hop, R&B, Classic Rock, Classic Soul, and Oldies, and the latest Top-40 in Mainstream and Urban music today, along with the music and requests of you and your guests. We do make exceptions on the music played as per the request of the paying client however, we will let it be known that the music being played is at the request of the client and is not of our own choosing. This helps protect our reputation as the DJ service we advertise to be.
How do you come up with your pricing?
We charge by the hours of work, time and effort we put into your event from start to finish. For example: If you would like to book us for a 4-hour event, it would take about 8 hours of hard work and labor to bring you a successful event. Here is a quick breakdown: Preparation and travel expenses (1hr.), loading and unloading of equipment into and out of the vehicle before the start of your event (1hr.), setup and breakdown of equipment before and after the event (1hr.), the DJ performance (4hrs.), Loading and unloading of equipment into and out of the vehicle after the event (1hr.). Grand Total – 8hrs. of work for a 4hr event.
Is the client able to meet with you prior to their event?
Once you become a client we will make every effort to meet with you in person at my home office or at any mutually agreed place, time, or location to go over all of the details of your event well before your event date.
How will you and/or your assistants dress for my event?
Our DJ and staff will always dress appropriately for your event. For formal events, the men may wear a formal suit or tuxedo and the women may wear a formal dress, formal blouse, and skirt, or a formal pants suit. We will also dress appropriately for less formal events or casual affairs.
Is there a minimum amount of time that you must be booked for?
We feel based on our experience in doing business; That the performance time required for events that are less than two hours or more than six hours is not a great value for both us and the customer. We don’t usually book events outside of these parameters because the DJ’s performance time alone is not the only time spent when an event is booked. People tend to ignore the physical labor, time, and expenses involved to book a DJ regardless of the time he or she performs during an event.
Do you bring your own equipment?
As your DJ we will always come equipped with well-maintained top-notch professional state of the art music sound and light equipment and backup equipment in case an unlikely problem occurs with the original system. Our systems will provide trouble-free clear quality sound and light for each and every event. The rental for this equipment is also built into the price.
How much time do you usually need to set up your equipment?
The setup time for our Standard systems usually takes about 60 minutes total. We ask that you allow us access to the location at least one hour prior to the contracted start time of your event.
How much experience do you have with weddings?
We have been Disc Jockeying Weddings, Parties, Reunions, etc. thru-out South Jersey and the Tri-State area for well over 10 years. We have a well-formatted system for weddings and we have been making our client’s big day a stress-free experience.
Why so few Google reviews?
I send my clients one satisfaction survey after each event. I only ask my client to give his or her honest opinion on the services they received from our company. I will note that the feedback from this survey with help our company continue our good services or make improvements where necessary. We value our client’s time and privacy and therefore we don’t pressure our clients or make them feel obligated to go elsewhere to post a review. However, you may run across some random reviews of our company on third-party websites such as Yelp, Wedding Wire, Bark, Gigmasters, etc. Random reviews from our clients are posted on our own Testimonials web page and this is usually satisfactory for both us and our clients.
Can you provide the music for my wedding ceremony?
Soul Reminisce DJ Service can provide you with an additional sound set-up with PA and music for one hour before your main event, provided that both events are at the same venue or location.
Will you act as the Master of Ceremonies for my event?
We will make special announcements during your event as well as play the music however for a smoother and more organized flow of music and events we do provide special packages that include a dedicated Emcee. The dedicated Emcee for your event will make all the necessary announcements, as well as help, organize the lineup to stay in sync with the current music, announcements, and events. The dedicated Emcee will also work closely with your banquet manager, photographer, video person, and wedding coordinator to ensure that all events of the evening run smoothly. This helps the DJ do what they were originally designed to do which is focus on the music and provide a continuous flow without any delays.
