Frequently Asked Questions:
Is there a way to listen to listen to the types of music you play?
Sure thing, click on this link to be taken to my Business Facebook page where I often post customized mixes from my Mixcloud page. Keep in mind that I create customized playlists for each event I do according to the clients' preferences, so the Mixcloud mixes are more for creative experience.
How long have you been a DJ?
For twenty four years as of 2018.
How many weddings have you done?
I've done over 800 weddings, and many other events as of 2018. Direct personal experience is crucial for weddings. Don't be tricked by a DJ company that says they've done over 6000 weddings. That figure doesn't say anything regarding how many events your particular DJ has done. It only says that the DJ company churns out events.
What's your equipment like?
I use top quality equipment from lighting to audio systems. I also play a number of instruments, so I have an ear for refined sound.
Who will DJ my event?
Good question, I will always DJ your event. I don't pass the responsibility for your major event off to a subordinate employee.
How many songs do you have?
I have thousands and thousands of songs from every genre of music. I create a customized playlist for every event that I do. I can also obtain songs onsite using my wireless hot-spot.
Can you perform outside?
I love to do outdoor events; I own wedding canopies for both my ceremony and reception systems.
Do you travel outside of Albuquerque?
Sure do, travel within a 60 mile radius (Albuquerque to Santa Fe) is complimentary.
Do you require a deposit?
I require $70.00 deposit to lock-in your event date. Signing the service agreement also locks-in your event date.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept check, money order, cash, credit and debit cards.
How much will I pay in tax?
I include gross receipts tax in all my prices because it is much more convenient.
How much for an extra hour, or to subtract an hour?
It's $40.00 more to add an hour, and $40.00 less to subtract an hour.
Can you recommend any other vendors?
I know a handful of vendors that are at the top of their field for their ability to produce an excellent product. They are excellent to work with, and often don't even know that I recommend them to clients. I recommend them because I want to work with people who know what they are doing. I'd be happy to make those recommendations to you.
Are there any vendors that I should avoid?
There is a single photographer in Albuquerque that I've decided to no longer do events with. There are a number of reasons why, but the most significant one is irresponsibility. He is also exceedingly disrespectful towards his own clients, and other vendors. He has a number of negative reviews on various sites including Yelp on which he berated his client after they left a non-stellar review. I asked him to remove me from his spam email list because I chose not to be associated with him, and he basically had a meltdown over it. I can show you the email exchange. I will probably ask you who your photographer is if you contact me for an event; I'm just checking if you've hired him for your event.
