Frequently Asked Questions
What type of events do you book?
DJ Perfect primarily specializes in An Upscalse DJ Experience with real DJ skills, charismatic microphone presence, and immaculate presentation. We have done it all type of events from small to large. Our ideal clients want, and are able to distinguish, talent and quality. We are not the most expensive, but certainly are not who you come to for a cheap wedding DJ with low-level equipment, presentation, and talent.
Are you insured?
Yes. Some venues require vendors to list them as Additional Insured on a liability insurance policy for the event. We will provide the insurance certificate to the venue when requested. We are covered up to $2,000,000 liability.
Who will be our DJ?
The founder and lead entertainer, DJ Perfect is the entertainer assigned to all bookings (unless DJ Perfect is already booked). Due to limited availability, DJ Perfect has opened up booking to other DJs that he has personally trained and mentored, in order to accommodate increased demand.
All of our DJs are able to rock any event, any audience, any age range, and possess real DJ skills (beat-matching, blending, mixing, turntablism). Our team members are articulate and dress appropriately for each occasion. We pay attention to the details that matter to our clients.
What do you provide for the wedding ceremony?
For your wedding ceremony, we will play your pre-selected songs with smooth transitions. As a standard, a lapel microphone and a wireless handheld microphone (on a stand) is provided. If you have vocalists or musicians performing, we can accommodate their equipment needs as well.
We pay attention to details. That is why we use white speakers, cables, and microphone stands to blend into your wedding decor.
How do you handle requests?
Clients are able to set the general tone for the event in our exclusive mobile app and the online client portal. There, clients can specify the genres and time periods of the music they would like to hear, as well as their favorite artists/songs. We even provide recommendations for each section for those clients that need a little help finding the Perfect song.
Of course, like any artist, I don’t do well with micro-management. As an experienced professionals who can read a crowd, we must be allowed creative license to determine what to play and when, based on how the audience is responding on the dance floor (and using the requests of the clients as a guide).
Clients are asked to tell us background info on the musical taste of their guests, to ensure that guests will hear the music that is sure to get them going.
What is your DJ style?
DJ Perfect, along with any DJs on the DJ Perfect Entertainment team, are skilled mix DJs. As open format DJs, we cater to the needs of the clients. However, the most common events we spin cover Hip-Hop, R&B, Top 40, House, Reggae, Soca, Salsa, and Merengue.
We are not the YMCA, Chicken Dance, or Macarena type of DJs. Also, we do not facilitate activities like the Shoe Game or other games. In this business, it is important to be true to your art form. There is a right fit for every client, and we realize that we avoid bashing entertainers that do the above. We simply specialize in rocking parties with two turntables, a mixer, and charismatic microphone presence.
What happens in case of emergency?
Our contract protects you, and us, in case of emergency. In a scenario where an emergency prevents the assigned DJ from performing at your event, you will be notified immediately, and another one of our DJ Perfect Entertainment team members will be assigned to deliver the same services you contracted. We purposely keep an entertainer available each weekend to provide coverage if needed.
What if there is technical difficulty with equipment?
Prevention is the cure. DJ Perfect Entertainment believes in buying the best equipment the first time. That means that rather than rushing out and buying the cheapest equipment, we invest in the most proven, quality equipment, even if it is considerably more expensive.
With that said, even the most high-end technology can malfunction every now and then. That is why, we bring backups of everything, built into our setups. If something goes down, we can keep the party going.
Do you have any sound or power requirements?
All audio equipment will be provided by DJ Perfect Entertainment, with the exception of concerts or nightclubs, where a professional sound engineer is on duty. At all other party venues, churches, and other facilities, we do not use the venue’s sound system.
Generally, we do not require any special power outside of a standard electrical outlet, and request that it be designated for the DJ’s use only. Our sound and lighting equipment does not draw an excessive amount of power, but it is best to be on the safe side. If the venue lacks enough outlets to leave one free for only the DJ to use, we will need to be notified well in advance in order to prepare.
Where can we see you in person?
The majority of our events are weddings and invitation-only events, so we can’t invite potential clients. However, some events we perform are open to the public. Follow @iamdjperfect on Instagram or Facebook to get info on events that are open to the public. In the meantime, you can always check out mixes at djperfect.com/mixes.
How much is required to book a date?
A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to book. The final balance must be paid no later than 30 days prior to the event date. Bookings occurring 30 days or sooner from the event date require payment in full.
Do you provide a contract?
Absolutely. We provide a convenient electronic signature platform for contracts. If you are old school, you may print it and mail it :-)
How many hours of service are included?
Each quote given is partly based on the number of hours requested, but most events include 4 hours. Once you receive a quote, the time frame you requested has already been used to determine the price. Please note that time frame is only one factor that determines your quote.
What forms of payment are accepted?
We make it convenient to make a secure payment directly on our electronic quote. All major credit cards are accepted. You may also pay via PayPal or Square. Check payments made payable to DJ Perfect Entertainment, 3588 Hwy 138 SE #178, Stockbridge GA 30281.
Once booking has occurred, balance payments can be made by logging into your online client portal.
How much do you charge?
While most DJs are annoyed by this question. Let's just face it head on right out the gate. The importance of the DJ to the success of any event, especially a wedding, is huge. Over the years, we have offered various pricing options, packages, etc. After looking at what most clients have booked, a simple and streamlined pricing approach has been established.
Pricing for each event is different, so contact us to provide your event details, and you will receive a starting price for your event type, with a full list of package options made available during the consultation. Factors affecting price include type of services requested, travel distance from Atlanta, time of day/year, length of time, equipment requirements, and venue locations and restrictions.
