Frequently Asked Questions Things you wanted to know about my school disco service but might have been afraid to ask
Below is a list of the most popular questions that clients ask (or would like to ask) a potential DJ. Whilst they hopefully cover many of the things you would like to know, you will almost certainly have more questions, so please do not hesitate to contact me with your questions, either via phone/email, or in person when we meet before your event.
Are you CRB Checked?
Yes. A copy of my certification can be provided upon request.
Is your equipment certified?
Yes. All equipment is PAT tested for electrical safety on an annual basis. A copy of my latest electrical test results can be provided upon request.
Are you insured?
Yes. I have full public liability insurance to the sum of £10million. A copy of my insurance schedule can be provided upon request.
What makes you different from your competitors?
I provide a friendly, reliable, personal service. My website (www.thedigitaldj.net) it not a single page with a little piece of text and a phone number…it contains full details about me, the services I provide, pictures, videos and – perhaps most importantly – a large number of testimonials from previous satisfied customers.
I do this job primarily because I enjoy it and like meeting and working with people. As a result, i try to provide great value for money - especially for schools, which receive a 25% discount on my normal rates.
May we meet with you in person before we book?
Of course – in fact, it would be extremely useful to meet in the hall where the disco will take place.
Will it actually be you that provides the disco?
With many suppliers, the person you speak with is not always the person who will be the DJ. This is a very common practice among large agencies. I (Roy) am The Digital DJ and it will be me that actually provides services at your event, as well as communicating with you prior to your event. This way, we build a good relationship and understanding beforehand which will help ensure your event runs smoothly and there are no undesired surprises.
How long will you hold our date for us?
After the very first enquiry, the minimum I will hold the date for you will be 7 days. If I do not hear from you at all within that period, then I cannot guarantee that the date will remain free. The date will be held throughout our subsequent communications and first meeting, at which point, we will agree a time whereby a deposit will be required to secure the date if you wanted to go ahead.
How far in advance can/should we book?
There is no limit. Bare in mind that I provide school discos for 10 schools in the area and as a result, tend to get booked up quickly for popular events/periods such as valentines, end of term, halloween, christmas etc.
What is included in the cost of my event?
Every event is different and is costed individually, however, the price i give you will include setup time (which is usually an hour before the start). Music, lights/lasers, smoke/bubbles are all included.
How much input can I have on the playlist?
As much or as little as youd like!
Can we make requests on the night?
Absolutely. I encourage you to do so!.
