Whats your backup plan if something happens to my DJ?

We always have a back up DJ on stand by in the event of an emergency.

What equipment do you use?

We only use state-of-the-art professional DJ equipment that minimizes wires and enhances the ethstetics of your event space.

Will the DJ play requests?

Our DJs do take requests and may play some of them. Our DJs “filter” requests, meaning they will not play a song that you specifically asked the DJ not to play or music from a genre you asked the DJ not to play. If someone makes a request that fits in well with what the DJ is playing at the time and with the music the client wants, then the DJ may play the request. We have an online planning system that will allow you to make request lists before the event.

Can we bring our own music for the DJ to play?

Sure, but we would like to get the music file(s) in advance of the event. If doing this please consider the audience attending your event.

What are your payment terms?

The deposit is required at the time of booking and the remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the event date. Payments can be made through check, credit card, PayPa, or Venmol. Click here to contact us for more information on pricing.

When should I book my DJ?

A good time frame is at least nine to six months before the event. However, we may have a DJ available for a last minute event as well.

Should we feed the DJ?

This is not required in our contract and is completely up to you. Typically, the catering director or event coordinator will set aside a meal or boxed dinner for the DJ if requested by the client.

How many songs should I request?

You can select songs that you would like to hear at your event (as well as songs you don’t want to hear) through our online planning system. The number of songs you request is totally up to you! We recommend giving your DJ at least 10-15 songs of different genres and artists that you would like to hear. A few songs/artists that you don’t want to hear is always helpful as well. If you end up requesting a lot of songs, just keep in mind the time constraints of your event. During your initial consultation, your DJ will ask about your music preferences.

How early will out DJ arrive to set up?

Our DJs will arrive two hours prior to the scheduled start time of your event unless other arrangements have been made. It typically takes about an hour and a half to set up so this allows us to be set up before guests arrive.

Do you charge for travel

Travel charges depend upon the circumstances, which is part of why we customize packages for each client. We normally do not charge travel for events 50 miles from the NO metro area. Beyond that, it depends upon the distance involved.

Will the DJ make announcements

Our DJs come equipped with a microphone and are happy to make announcements and to help coordinate activities at your event, if you want them to. We plan these activities and announcements with you ahead of time so there are no surprises or disappointments at your event.

Why should I choose Mobile DJ NOLA over another DJ service?

We believe that we provide the best DJ service in New Orleans and its surrounding areas. We pay attention to every detail and make every effort to make each event we do absolutely perfect. Our DJs are there to make you look good, not to make themselves look good. No egos, showboating or embarrassing behavior; just a professional in place to serve you. At most events, the DJ usually “makes-or-breaks” the party. A great DJ means a great party and an event you will never forget, practically regardless of any other circumstances. A bad DJ will send people home early and probably ruin the night, no matter how nice the rest of the event has been. Truly, the DJ might be the most critical decision one can make when planning a party. We believe you will not find a higher quality DJ service in the area. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you!
