How do I book my DJ?
Contact us to see if we have availability on your date. If we have your date available you’ll be able to speak with your DJ and set up the details for a contract. We’ll send you the contract by email as a .pdf document. You’ll print and mail the signed contract to us and when we receive it, we’ll send you another .pdf of the contract with our signature and noting your payment. From there we’re locked in and ready to start working on your custom playlist!
Can I pick songs for you to play?
Of course. We welcome as much input as you want to give for songs that we should play at your event. One of the things that makes our approach to DJing your event special is that we start every event with a blank slate. We want to create the vision that you have for your event, so we’ll speak with you to create a custom playlist for your event. It’s also a good idea to get input from important guests to make sure they hear their favorites too. You can also tell us what NOT to play.
Do you take requests?
Yes, we’re happy to take song requests during the event as long as you want us to. 🙂 We’ll do our best to work your guests suggestions into the flow of the night.
Will I know who my DJ is?
Definitely! Andy (DJ C4), Martin (DJ Graffiti) and Drew (DJ ZU) Zuniga are the Snapfuze DJs. You’ll know exactly who you’ll be working with, and will be able to speak personally with your DJ before you book with us.
How long does set-up take?
It usually takes us less than an hour to set up our DJ equipment. However, we plan to arrive 1.5 hours before your event begins just in case there’s an unforeseen circumstance such as construction traffic or an equipment issue. Leaving that extra hour of set-up time gives us plenty of flexibility to work out any kinks long before your guests arrive.
When will you arrive?
We will arrive 1.5 hours before your guests begin to arrive. Please let us know when your guests are set to arrive if this is before the start time of the event. We always like to be set up before your guests arrive.
What if you can’t make it?
We’ve never missed an event, but we are tied into a wide network of great DJs around Metro-Detroit, so you’ll never have to worry that you’ll be left without a DJ. Because we’re still active DJs at clubs and concerts around Metro-Detroit, we network regularly with some of the best DJs in Michigan and in most circumstances we could find you another great DJ in a moments notice.
What will our DJ wear?
We’ll take the cue from you. If the event is a wedding or formal gathering we generally wear a suit & tie. For other events please let us know how casual or dressy we should be. Overall, we’re always looking to dress clean, neat and stylishly appropriate.
Do you own your equipment?
Yes, we own all of our equipment including everything we need to DJ, speakers and subwoofers, mics (both corded and cordless) and mixers for live sound, as well as lighting (DJ lighting and LED up-lights). We also have relationships with concert sound and lighting companies.
Do you have back-up equipment?
We always have back up precautionary equipment on site to keep the music going. Even if there’s a computer malfunction our years of experience has taught us how to adapt to any situation and make it work.
Are you insured?
Yes, we carry both liability and equipment insurance so you and your guests are protected.
Do you offer lighting?
Yes we do. We have two types of lighting: DJ Lighting that chases to the beat of the music and LED Uplights that can be set to any color and create a unique atmosphere throughout the room.
Do you have cordless microphones?
Yes, we have both corded and cordless microphones. For most events we bring cordless mics, because they allow guests to move around and stand where they feel most comfortable. In addition to handheld cordless mics we also have clip-on lavalier mics that are perfect for a minister or officiant at a wedding.
Can you provide sound for my ceremony?
Definitely. We can provide music, speakers and microphones as well as mic stands for musicians or readers. Our wedding DJ package is booked as a day rate, so if you need sound for your ceremony at the same location it’s included!
How much room do you need?
For our normal DJ set up we require a space of approximately 10 feet x 5 feet. That includes room for a 6 or 8 foot table with two speakers on stands and a subwoofer. If you’ve included DJ lighting we’ll need about 10 feet x 7 feet to accommodate the lighting stand. If space is a concern, we can set up on a table as small as 4 feet and position the speakers up to 50 feet away from the DJ area.
What do I need to provide?
For DJ events we need a 6 or 8 foot banquet table covered with a linen and a nearby 3-prong power outlet. Upon request we can also provide our own table and black or white table cover.
When are my payments due?
Your first payment is due when you initially book and reserve your DJ. Your final payment is due 30 days before your event. If you are booking within 30 days of your event we’ll work with you to determine the payment arrangement.
