Yes! Each year I Personally DJ between 28 and 35 weddings and 30 to 50 non-weddings. Too often, DJs place too many events on their schedule, placing greater emphasis on quantity than quality - I don't believe in that. When broken down, the time I put into a 5-hour wedding (including calls, preparation, and executing the event) comes to around 27 hours.
Some factors that may increase the price for your event include:
- Event date (popularity)
- Multiple equipment setups
My pricing works like this: first and foremost, you are paying for the DJ himself (in this case, me), which includes all the equipment required to make your event vision come to life (if local). Additional services, or "extras", that are beyond what is normally provided will affect the price. If services are added, it may require an additional person to help with set up - this is also factored into the pricing.
- Deposit + signed contract
- For most events: a $750 Booking Fee, with the remaining balance due 3 weeks before the event
- If the event is outside of the state of Utah, the booking fee will be half of the total event price
An emcee is a crucial part of an event and its success. I am known for "light emceeing" - sticking to a direct and simple style. Examples include “Guests, it is now time to direct your attention to the stage!” or “It is my pleasure to introduce your speaker, John Smith!”
"My personal view is I would rather just be a DJ that directs the night with the music and the ocassional announcement with a little floor hype. If I didn't have to touch or speak into a mic I would be happy with that 😀 .
Having said this, I have no problems with making announcements that are information-based and direct to keep the evening running smoothly."
I think requests are a good way of getting those hidden bangers that weren't originally thought about. That being said, my process for most private events and weddings allows for you to get most, if not all, the requests taken care of before the event.
Depending on the vibes of the event/wedding, and each individual client's expectations or wishes, I can taylor my ability to take or not take requests on a per event basis.
Tailoring the event to you is the most important aspect of what I do as a DJ. After all, music is obviously important to you - why else would you be on the hunt for a DJ? Each event is different and music is always tailored to the client's desired atmosphere, vibes, and expectations. Many clients give a suggested list of music in addition to a smaller "must-play" list.
My style includes playing re-drums, mashups, and original tracks, from the newest beats to the older classics. During an event, I will challenge the status quo and take the audience on a journey through quick hits covering all genres through all eras.
Currently, I'm in love with house music vibes. 2010's to current tech house.
Did you know? There are over 60,000 songs uploaded daily on Spotify!?
My Mixcloud has mixes from past events along with some studio mix sessions. Many have been performed live and are tailored to each client. You can also find raw footage from past events on my Portfolio Page.
My default is to play clean edits, but explicit versions can be used upon request. If they are requested, they will not be played in public spaces.
For local events, my base price includes:
- Date reservation -
- Custom DJ booth setup (Unless there are stairs.)
- Arrival at least 3 hours prior to guests
- Professional attire for the occasion
- Sound System
- Liability insurance
Great question! I may be a little biased because I am a DJ first; however, a fusion of DJ + Sax + Drummer can create a ton of value and provide the live performance aspect that you are looking for. Be sure to check out my blog post about this exact question!
Yes! I first charge a talent fee to take on the event like any other wedding or event I do. After that, the client is typically responsible for the hard costs such as production, flights, and other expenses.
This is one of the amazing things about my process. Let's face it - you are busy and probably have ten other vendors to work with. I've created a guide that accompanies my online forms which will help you stay organized and know what information you need to get to me. Then, we will work out the exact event details 14-16 days out from your event.
"Not every event is for me. I’m not here to dj 5 weddings in a week, week after week."
If someone is bragging about doing 5 weddings in a week, 5 weeks in a row, and has a full-time job on top of the DJing, I suggest you RUN. ASK YOUR DJ HOW MANY WEDDINGS THEY DO A WEEK! If it's more than 2... They probably aren't going to give you the attention your weddings needs or deserves.
Yes. I can plug into the house video system or provide TVs myself.
I would love to work with your musicians and bands to provide the appropriate microphones and monitors they need. There is, however, an additional cost if monitors or specific microphones are requested.
I mainly serve Salt Lake City and Park City Area. I Travel to Zion National Park, Jackson Wyoming, Page Arizona, and Boise Idaho often. I've been to Florida, and California and am willing to service most of the United States. One of my favorite places I've DJ'd is on a cruise ship headed to the Bahamas.
I am excited to one day DJ In Hawaii, NYC, and Paris at some point. (Good Vibes Coming my way!)
I am passionate about working with people who are doing good in the community. I am trusted and paid by many organizations that host fundraisers from year to year and love partnering with them to make their events profitable. I love working at fundraisers, including galas, concerts, silent auctions, and dances.
Like any company, we are a for-profit business with hard costs required to make things happen. Please don't hesitate to reach out for your next event, but keep in mind that I do not provide free staging, lighting, sound, or DJ services. The most profitable fundraiser and non-profits we work with find value in impressing their donors with an entertainment experience worth every penny they spend.
Yes! This is a question I get often. While I can only be in one place at a time, I have created a network of DJs I work with that aren't hired simply because they are available, and aren't referred just to get them work. I talk about what is important to you, what your music tastes are, and what your dance floor looks like before sending you to a DJ that fits what's important to you. Because weddings are so unique, I will usually refer you to someone I trust and let you work out the details with them directly. For corporate events, high schools, or college events, I have trusted pros in my network who have experience & skill in each area.
Yes! Me and my parent company Reeverb Entertainment LLC have worked with multiple exclusive artists and DJs for private gatherings, corporate events, and weddings. Whether you are traveling to Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Nevada, or other venues in Park City or the surrounding areas, quality equipment will be waiting for you. My DJ equipment is rider-friendly and includes brands like Pioneer DJ, Rane, QSC, Electro-Voice, DB Technology, RCF, LD, Chauvet, ADJ, Astera, and Martin.
This is a great question. I have clients whom I sign NDA's for and I have companies that have me 'White Label.' I have clients that ask me not to take video or post anything from the event and, when requested, I will respect that agreement.
I am a DJ first at your event, so videos are usually a small snippet from a phone being pulled out for a second or a 360 Camera I set up behind the booth and sound gear that is left on, is not intrusive, and does not require my attention throughout the evening. As you are looking at these videos, please note a few things: first, it's usually raw footage since I'm focused on what you hired me for - to actually DJ. Secondly, clients, photographers, and videographers usually send me footage months after the events and that is where I get about half of the event content I post. I will always follow non-disclosure agreements, and If you do not want me to take video or photos, just let me know.
This is a great question. I do not speak any other language. However, I work with clients from all over the world and because of the process I've created, it makes it easy to add multi-cultural music into my mixes.
