Do you provide a written contract for your services?
Absolutely! Always get any service providers agreements in writing!
How many wedding receptions have you performed at?
I have personally orchestrated between 400—450 wedding receptions with well over 10 years of experience. I am still looking for new and innovative ways to improve after each and every one.
May I see you perform at a wedding reception?
I certainly understand that it is difficult to base your decisions solely based on advertising, marketing, and promises. You would like to see what you will get for your money. This is why I suggest that we speak about what opportunities you may have to see me in action when it would be appropriate for you to “pop in” and see how things are going.
How much do you charge?
Please see my website for current pricing info about my Package Price. Everything that you will need to make your reception GREAT! This includes up to five hours of music, background dinner music, dance music and light show. There may be a small fee for travel expenses outside of the Ft Collins/Loveland area $20-$50
How early do you arrive prior to a wedding reception?
I always plan to arrive at least two full hours before your guests. This insures that all equipment has been tested and that any issues have been ironed out before your guests arrive. Nobody wants to be there while the DJ is doing a sound check!
Do you have a wide base of entertainment experience to draw from?
Absolutely! I got started in the field of entertainment as a DJ about 20 years ago. This lead me into a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Television and Radio from UNC Greeley. I was a regular host of KRFC Ft Collins 88.9fm’s Live@Lunch live music program as well as on-air programmer for various shows. Currently, I am hosting a weekly variety open-stage/open mic
Will you the DJ act as a master of Ceremony?
Yes! This is a big part of what you need a DJ for. I can orchestrate all of the major events under changing conditions in order to keep things moving to prevent your guests from getting bored. Usually I announce the special events that people might want to take pictures of: First Dance, Cake, Bouquet, Garter, etc.
Are you able to play continuous music?
Yes...the music never stops.
Do you have any dance floor lighting?
Yes, I have a full dance floor light show available to you at no extra cost.
Are there any special needs for your equipment?
Other than the normal precautions for any electrical equipment, no. I only need a single, un-shared outlet to run my whole system.
What does your equipment consist of?
JR Productions uses the most trusted name in concert and event sound, Peavey. This sound system consists of a “ bulletproof ” 1000 watt Tri-Flex Peavey PA system complete with powered satellite speakers and black-widow subwoofer. This system packs small, sounds crystal clear and punches HARD! The lighting system has effects from such companies as Chauvet, Eliminator and American DJ.
Do you take requests?
Of course! One of my favorite things to do at a wedding reception is to walk around and ask the people at the tables if they have any requests. This gives me a chance to get to know your guests a little and it also allows your guests to get to know me, which will make them feel much more comfortable. This has proven to be one of the most important things that I do to insure the success of any event.
Do you have a reception planning form and can we meet in person with you before our wedding to discuss it?
Absolutely! It is very important for us to meet (if possible) to go over your plans and make sure that we are on the same page when the big day rolls around. Of course it should be said that even the best laid plans need to be flexible, this allows us to work around any unforeseen circumstances. One or two face to face meetings really will insure that things will go smoothly. Phone consultations can easily be arranged if distance or time makes it difficult to meet in person.
Do you have a comprehensive Back-up Equipment Plan?
Please take a look at my entire Equipment Failure Back-up Plan. I am quite confident that no other DJ company is willing to go as far as I have to insure that your reception runs smoothly and problem free. With my access to a local network of DJ’s you are always covered if I am not able to make a gig due to illness, personal injury or family emergency.
