LET’S GET REAL.
Q: How long have you been DJing?
Alex: I have been DJing since 2014 and doing weddings since 2015
Q: How many events have you DJed?
Alex: I have DJed over 200 weddings, private events, pool parties, and I am still growing!
Q: Do you play requests?
Alex: I TOTALLY play requests. Although as the DJ, I reserve the right to refuse a request if I feel it does not mix well or fit with the vibe of the current music being played. You also have control over what I DON’T play; I will not play requests if they fall under the “do not play” list given to me on your “Music Bible”.
Q: What are your payment terms?
Alex: I require a 30% deposit upon completion of the contract with the remaining balance due by the day of the wedding or event.
Q: What types of events do you DJ?
Alex: I do a lot of weddings, but also DJ many private parties, corporate events, pool parties, bodybuilding competitions, and school dances.
Q: What additional services do you offer?
Alex: Any package can be customized to include a photo booth, uplighting, live musicians, or smoke/haze machines. (see Services) If you want something beyond that, please ask and I will most likely be able to get it for you!
Q: Where can I hear you play?
Alex: As much as I’d like to invite you to my next wedding, the best place to hear my music is on my Mixcloud page at www.mixcloud.com/djalexupdike
Q: What if I decide to add a service or more time to my contract after it’s signed?
Alex: In almost every case, I can add services or time to an existing contract up until our last planning meeting.
Q: How do you make sure I get the music I want?
Alex: I take the time to personally get to know all of my clients. We will talk in detail about your music interests and desires to ensure I know the exact vibe you are going for. On top of that, all of my couples get access to their own personal “Music Bible” that takes them step-by-step through the wedding to ensure they get exactly what they want at every turn!
Q: Should I tip the DJ?
Alex: A tip is always appreciated if you enjoyed the DJ, but is completely up to the discretion of the client.
Q: Why should I hire you instead of my cousin with an iPhone and Spotify account?
Alex: A DJ goes way beyond simply hitting the play button on a preset playlist. I have years of experience reading crowds and making real-time decisions regarding the music so that I know the PERFECT song to play at any given moment. I use professional-grade equipment, mix all of my dance music “club- style”, and have been MCing events for longer than I’ve been DJing. Tell your cousin to top THAT!
