FAQs

We get these questions all the time.
If you don't see your question, let us know!

Are you a full-time DJ business?

We are full-time wedding and special event DJs. Most DJs fill their time by taking corporate events during the day and club gigs at night. We don't do that because those events have a very different vibe, schedule, and pace from a wedding. In fact, the Knot recommends booking a DJ that focuses on weddings. You can see from our Google Business Profile that we are available 24x7 with online/office hours from Tuesday-Saturday, 9am-5pm (we try to take it easy on Mondays). You can always call our main number, 770-370-8835, and once you sign a contract, you will also have your DJ's mobile number as well as our planning coordinator.

How much do you charge for your services?

You will receive a no-nonsense quote that matches our pricing page and is all-inclusive from planning to pack up. We don't charge extra for certain dates or different "levels" of equipment. You always get our premium equipment that includes everything you need.

What type of equipment do you use?

We use only premium professional audio equipment to guarantee the best quality sound possible. Our equipment is touring quality exactly as professional bands and entertainers use. Most of our audio equipment is made by Yamaha and their professional/studio line (Line 6) paired with Shure wireless microphones. The reason this is important is to avoid feedback, distortion, and bass that consumes the room. You can count on crystal clear audio even at high volume with chest-thumping bass (but only if you want). We tune the setup to the venue and the room you are in so that everything sounds perfect.

Can we meet you via Zoom, Hangouts, Webex, in-person, etc.?

Well, of course! We will meet you and your planners in whatever location or medium makes you comfortable. We are always available via text, e-mail, and phone, and we will set up video chats for most planning meetings. If you would like to also meet in person prior to your event, we are happy to accommodate. After all, we have to go over your vision, your specific needs, and your dreams, and the we have to tell you exactly how we will fulfill them. It's also a personality check. Once we complete our consultation, you will see how comfortable you feel having us as part of your special day. After booking Atlanta.DJ, you will have full access directly to your personal DJ via phone, email, and face to face meetings throughout the entire planning process.

Do you bring back up equipment to all events?

Yes we do. Even though we use premium brand professional audio equipment, one never knows if it will ever fail. Therefore a backup system is available on site just in case.

What happens if you get sick the day of the event?

We belong to an emergency respond network with other quality, professional DJs in the area. You are assured to get a back up Entertainer if something should happen.

How early will you arrive at the venue?

Your event is the only event that your DJ will have that day. They will arrive whenever you like, but always at least one hour before the music needs to start playing. We can generally set up in less than 20 minutes, but we like to allow plenty of time to test all components and make adjustments for optimal sound performance at your venue. We also leave time to freshen up and be properly dressed before your event starts. We will make sure that we have access to the vendor "load-in" area and parking in advance.

What type of music do you have?

All of it!! We can literally play anything you want. In addition to a permanent library of thousands of the most popular wedding/party songs, we maintain professional subscriptions to the most up-to-date DJ catalogs. This includes: Pop, Dance, Swing, R&B, Techno, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Disco, Reggae, Country, Oldies, Jazz, Folk, Alternative, Heavy Metal, Rock, Beach Music, Blues, Christian, House, EDM, Funk, Ballroom, Show Tunes... you get the idea. Even hard to get tracks from anti-streaming artists like Garth Brooks and Bob Seger. If there is a special song that you are afraid we can't get, we can get it. We promise.

What music will be played at my event?

You are the boss, and you get to customize the party based on your taste and specific needs. You can make a list of Must Play and Don’t Play songs or even create a master wish list of songs for each part of the wedding from guest arrival, through ceremony, cocktails, and reception. We will use your list combined with our professional experience to throw the party of a lifetime.

How far in advance do we need to book?

Most of our clients book Atlanta.DJ Productions approximately 12-18 months in advance. However, many times we can accommodate reservations made from a few weeks to several months ahead. Since there’s no way of predicting which dates will become totally booked, the only way to know is to call us and speak to a representative. We do not charge extra for "premium" dates or holidays.

Do you offer photography services?

Atlanta.DJ works with a number of top wedding photographers in the Atlanta area. Check our vendor list for our favorites!

How loud will the music be at my event?

Atlanta.DJ was founded partly because of the sound quality and inappropriate volume that we experienced at too many special events. Sound quality and proper volume control is very important to us and your guests. We want to make sure that people on the dance floor are having a really good time, but we also want to make sure that guests at their tables are able to have a nice conversation without having to scream at each other. You can count on crystal clear audio because we carefully tune the setup and the high/mid/low frequencies to the room so that everything sounds great.

Can we see your DJs perform?

We do not consider ourselves performers as many club DJs might. We are not scratching artists nor will we attempt to draw attention to ourselves during your event. Because we focus on weddings, we respect the privacy of our clients, just as we will yours. You can view several of our wedding videos on YouTube and Instagram, and you will see a crowd having a crazy good time. What you will get is a once-in-a-lifetime event that is well-orchestrated from beginning to end.

How will you dress for my event?

Our MCs are always professionally dressed in tuxedos, black or gray suits, or other appropriate attire for our male and female MCs. We will discuss in advance and accept your guidance on what is most appropriate for your event.

Are you interactive?

We are certainly interactive, but we are not constantly on the microphone trying to be the center of attention at your event. We use the microphone for appropriate MC announcements; not for hype. We will not badger your guests to dance or "put heir hands up"... we are sure the music will do that. Our DJs will not embarrass you or your friends and will not play cheesy games or pull your guest out of their comfort zones. We will not steal your spotlight. We will read the room, ride the energy with you, and accept your guidance throughout the event.

Do you have insurance?

Absolutely.

Most venues require outside vendors to carry their own liability insurance. This is an easy check to see if you are dealing with a professional entertainment company. You may also find that your venue has their own insurance which includes vendors. This option has the benefit of extending the coverage to performers playing the venue, DJs included. In this case, you are doubly covered, and any accidents, mishaps, equipment damage, facility damage, etc. will not blow back on you or your guests. This protects us, naturally, but also protects you.

We will provide a copy of our policy information upon request well in advance of a contract commitment. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns.

Do you bring party favors or glow sticks to your events?

We do not. Many people get excited about light-up props especially, but we tend to find that props like hats and glow wands are distracting and detract from pictures and video. It's the same reason we don't bring lasers or aim our gobo monogram lights at the dance floor. They can be a terrible distraction (not just for children). If you would like to have something for your guests on the dancefloor, we recommend thin glow sticks, necklaces, leis, and bracelets.

Why does hiring someone to "just to play music" cost so much?

This is a loaded question, but it does get asked, and there is a very good answer.

Weddingwire.com has a good article on exactly this topic, but the summary is:

  • Time - covers pre-event meetings, preparation, load-in, load-out, and the event itself.
  • Expertise - the know-how to handle special events, especially weddings
  • Equipment - attractive, high-quality gear that complements your special day
  • Music - standards, hits, and special requests, in high fidelity with proper licenses to play anywhere
  • Operations - rent, utilities, storage, transportation, presentation, wardrobe, insurance

Each of these topics has an expanded article that you should read if you are interested.

It's a little "inside baseball", but should make you more than comfortable with our qualifications and more than justify the cost of a proper special events DJ.

Do you travel outside the metro-Atlanta area?

We focus on the Atlanta Metro area and our fee includes up to 2 hours drive time one-way to your venue.
