Answers to Common Questions

What makes DJ on the Side different than other DJ's in the area?
It is our business philosophy.
We consider ourselves much more than a DJ service in which a DJ shows up and plays music.
Beginning with your initial contact with us, we team up with you in finding out what your goal of a fun and successful event is. The owner of the company comes to you and sits down to talk about your big day. We make it a point to meet with you at a place and time convenient for you!
That includes us driving to the Richmond, Washington DC, and Outer Banks area every week to meet with prospective and current clients.
We help you develop a timeline that promotes a fun reception with a great flow of events.
You are provided your own online planning page, where, with a click of the mouse, you have access to our entire music library, timeline, and a customized planner!
Another big difference is that you meet with the DJ who is assigned to work your event.
You get to meet them face to face and develop that important rapport that leads to a successful reception.

What Types of Music Do you Play?
We play everything!
Our database consists of music from the Roaring 20's and Big Band to the hits of today.
We provide you full online access to our music library which gives you the opportunity to pick out some of your favorite songs you want heard at your event.
Our extensive music selection allows those with all musical tastes to be happy and feel part of the party!

Can we choose the music played at our event?
We are very flexible regarding music selection. This is your event and we encourage you to customize it to your personality. We provide you with an online password protected web page that has our entire music library on it. This is a tool that you can use from the comfort of your computer chair to pick your favorite tunes!
We have had clients that have chosen every song for the entire event, and others that have left the music selection completely up to us.
Our recommendation is to provide us with a list of "Must Play", "Play if Possible", and "Do Not Play" songs. This will provide the DJ latitude to play other selections based on reading the crowd.
It also gives us the opportunity to play requests.
Our policy of meeting in person also helps in making sure that we are going to play the songs that you want!

Will you provide Ceremony Music and/or Sound for Our Ceremony?
We provide Ceremony Music/ and or Sound Reinforcement for the ceremony. If the Ceremony location is in the same area as the reception and no additional setup is needed, the rate is
If a separate ceremony setup is needed, the rate is
This includes a mixer, amplifier, speakers, Music, and a Microphone for the officiant.

Do I need to feed the DJ?
We leave that decision up to you. It is appreciated. If you are thinking of providing the DJ with a meal, you may want to discuss it with them at your planning meeting

Is gratuity included in the price?
It is not included. Offering Gratuity to the DJ staff member is totally up to you. Our DJ's work hard in behind the scenes preparation and make it a priority that everyone has a great time.
If you believe the DJ's service is exceptional, we are sure they would appreciate it.
It is never expected.

Do you take requests?
Requests are always welcome. We will accomodate as many requests as possible within the guidelines you set forth in our planning meetings. If a request falls into the "Do Not Play" category, we will not play it.
