Questions you should ask
DJ, Disc Jockey, DeeJay, Virginia, VA, Wedding, Music, Reception

We will normally invest 12 to 30 hours to your special event even though it may appear that you are only paying for "4 hours". Consultations, music purchasing & editing, preparation, set-up and teardown, transportation, education and other business related endeavors add up to the overall success of your special occasion.

We are not only selling a service; we are selling an integral part of a memory. Whether you decide you want us or someone else to serve you, don't skimp on the DJ/MC. A good DJ/MC can enhance or ruin your important and likely "once in a lifetime" event.

Our price is clearly stated and broken-down in our contract. The guidelines we use when determining the total price follows:

Base Package1 DJ/MC & 1 assistant or 2 DJ/MCs, 2 laptop computers with extensive music libraries, 1 wireless microphone & 1 wired microphone, 1 mixer, 2 full-range speakers, 2 subwoofers, 1 1000 watt amplifier, up to 4 hours playing time, planning consultation(s) including 1 face-2-face meeting and associated travel, personalized music playlist plus thousands of additional music selections, music purchases, set-up & break-down, travel up-to 40 miles each way. It is our experienced opinion that a wedding reception should be at-least 4 hours if not longer.

+$120
Ceremony 2nd LocationIn addition to the Base Package or Expanded Option we can provide a complete small system at the ceremony site for music and ceremony presider amplification. It must 1st be determined by G&S if this is logistically possible or feasable before we will commit to this option. Price does not include additional time. +$90
Basic lighting packageMultiple lights that wash the dance-floor and surrounding area with ever-changing colors. These really do add to the atmosphere. They let everyone know that the dance floor is now open and that this is where the action is. Venue lighting must be dimmable for this to be effective. Free
Delux lighting packageI can't stress how much these add to the atmosphere regardless of the type of event. The light in this upgrade package, although primarily concentrated on the dance-floor, goes way beyond the dance-floor even in the largest rooms and consists of 3 different fixtures each of which produce varying effects. We typically save these for the later part of the reception or party and don't run them constantly lest they loose their novelty. This upgrade starts with the basic package and adds:
Venue lighting must be dimmable for this to be effective.

Why are you guys less expensive?
We try to follow the KISS method. (Keep It Simple Sam). We do this so we can keep our costs down and in-turn charge you less for our services. You get what you pay for, right? Sort-of. We concentrate on being good DeeJays, Masters of Ceremonies, & Reception Consultants. We are typically not highly interactive unless you want us to be (its your event not ours). We dont try to cover our huge expense on equipment that you didnt ask for. We dont go-after the large High-School gigs where we have to bring $30,000 worth of equipment in a huge moving van. We dont double as photographers or videographers. After meeting with Brides & Grooms or Party Planners we often hear that the reason we were chosen was due the fact that we offered a good service in a professional manner while coming-in under budget.

I can find DJ's cheaper than you guys
Probably, and if price is your only criteria, go for it but I must add "Caveat Emptor" - let the buyer beware. Do they really know what they're doing or is it just a guy with some sound equipment and an IPOD looking to make some extra money? Were they helpful and knowledgeable at your planning meeting? Can they show you a list of satisfied customer's testimonials and a list of venues where they've served? Here's another way to look at it. At the reception, you're cute loveable nephew Dennis runs into the table holding the wedding cake and down it comes. All that money spent! Is your reception completely ruined? NO. Now, let's say Dennis is well behaved all evening but the DJ plays the wrong stuff at the wrong times and messes-up the announcements, is no help keeping things going and does an all-around lousy job. Is your reception ruined? ... "Caveat Emptor"
