You may compile a disc of such to suit your tastes, or list some suggested songs that I can compile on your behalf. I have roughly 8 discs with a fine mix of genres, a variety of older and newer songs and so forth that play well for most any audience. And this is chiefly background music at any rate.___________________________________________________________________________________

While my catalog of songs is great (including all the "standard" dance songs like Cupid Shuffle, Electric Slide, Cha-Cha Slide, Baby Got Back - you get the idea...)
Are there any songs you want to be SURE I have ("I can't BELIEVE he didn't have **BLANK** in his library!!!") ?__________________________________________________________________________________________________
Have I made you aware that you and your guests will be welcome
to bring your OWN CDs or I can play songs requests from your or my Smart Phone? I STRONGLY encourage this, as I DO get caught off guard. RARELY, someone requests music from artists of whom I have never heard, and no matter how extensive a DJ's library this DOES occur more frequently than ANY DJ would care to admit.
Would YOU like to create some CDs that includes songs you feel are special to you?________________
Would you like to create a play list that includes songs you feel are special to you? I'll compile and create up to 2 discs - roughly 30 songs - if you wish
Is there anything else I might do to help make your reception a success?_____________________________________________
List any OTHER details I may have overlooked, please?_____________________________________________________
I carry with me a complete set of back-up equipment to insure against any possible failure, save for a power outage.
Have I made you aware? Your DJ fee is BASED on YOUR scheduled playing time BUT if the party continues beyond that I will CONTINUE to play LATER than THAT provided I have no other booking to meet?. If your event is still going strong, I want your guests fully satisfied.
ANY and ALL special services from above (within reason) ARE included in my fee, so feel welcome to request what you'd like!!!
