A suit, unless you request otherwise.
One of the most important services we offer, which is part of hiring 405 Productions, is the assistance of our office staff and DJs. We’ll help you carefully plan every detail of your once in a lifetime event.
Absolutely. Contrary to the beliefs of some people, WE KNOW it’s your day. Your DJ will play the songs on the music list that you’ve created and steer clear of those that you don’t want. With your permission, they will take your guests requests as well, provided they fit within the music program you’ve designed.
Beyond what you put in your song lists, we have a master music library that contains more than 2 million songs, virtually everything popular from the Big Band Era to today’s Top 40. So, if you don’t see a particular selection, call us, there’s a good chance that it’s in our library. Also, if there is WiFi at your venue we can play any song on iTunes!
No. We believe that the best events are those where you’ve given us guidelines and we do what we do best.
You’ll be happy to know that we believe in filling the room with sound, NOT equipment. Our sound systems are attractive, compact and deliver high quality coverage. They include a wireless microphone for all of your announcements and toasts. You will not need to supply cables or tables, only an outlet. Plus, we take the time to hide all of the wires and cables out of site as best we can.
There’s nothing worse than having to yell over loud music. We are very conscience of people’s sensitivity to noise. The speakers are placed above the ear-level of the guests and your DJ will continuously monitor the room and sound level.
No. We suggest that you opt for us to set up a second sound system which allows for uninterrupted music as your guests mingle and enjoy hors d’oeuvres.
We often provide the ceremony music. Let us know if the ceremony is in the same area as the reception, or a different location. We’ll handle it and be happy to share our ideas for processionals, recessionals and classical pieces.
Yes. We bring plenty of extra gear including a back-up computer…just in case.
If the DJ is admitted to the hospital with two broken legs and pneumonia, we will send our on-call DJ to your reception. Though rarely used, we have a DJ on-call 365 days of the year, just in case. In all our years of business, we have never missed an event. (Knock on wood)
Feeding your DJs is a great idea and very appreciated!
If you feel your DJ has delivered exceptional service, a tip will be appreciated.
