Please discuss with your caterer, restaurant, party planner or location manager.
Table for DJ - La mesa, por favor. Please arrange to have a table at least 6 feet wide and 3 feet deep with linen set up in the exact location you desire. We suggest adjacent to the dance floor, not blocking a door and close to a grounded outlet. This will eliminate any confusion as to where we will set up upon arrival. Also, the linen will match the rest of your tables. Feel free to place flowers on or around the table.
Better earlier than never - Meals for vendors:
It is customary for the host to arrange for a meal for vendors including photographers, musicians and DJs. (We didn't start this tradition though we can't argue with it.) Many caterers make the big mistake of serving the vendors the main course after the guests have eaten are are ready to boogie (as though they were planning on running out of food). Some even forget to provide a table for the vendors. The wise caterer will serve the vendors the main course as soon as guests are fed. Thus, we will be ready to play dance music when your guests are ready. Your caterer will usually be happy to comply knowing that you prefer having a successful event. Most of the establishments that recommend BOK-Music don't need to be reminded.
Rain - Are we covered?
For outdoor events, adequate protection from the elements for entertainers is the host's responsibility. Our agreement is with you, not the venue. This is serious since it can be life-threatening or at least, shocking. Normally, we are comfortable in any space that your guests would find fitting.
When ordering a tent, please don't forget to ask for:
1 A dance floor large enough for your dancers AND our setup (6' x 6' for a DJ) or a separate (6' x 6') floor.
2 Tent flaps to keep out blowing rain. (We would hate to stop the party to move our equipment to a safer place in case of sudden rain and wind.)
3 A grounded AC outlet close to our equipment. (Please tell your tent vendor that we will test the outlet for voltage, ground and polarity to make sure it is correctly wired for our safety.)
