Yes we carry handheld wireless microphones to all our events. We also have mic stands available. Please let us know if you need special accomodations with microphones for ceremonies or speeches. 

Depending on how much equipment is needed, we will get there on average 2-3 hours before the beginning of your event. Please check with the venue to make sure that there are no other events scheduled in your room prior to your event. If there is another event scheduled please let us know in advance so we can gauge the right amount of staff needed to be set up on time.

As much as we would love to invite you to one of our events, we can not unless the person who’s throwing the event approves it. However, we do not usually recommend this type of action because we cater our services to the wants and needs of each client individually. We do not do cookie cutter events. Every wedding we do is different.  What one particular client may like may not reflect what you like. We wouldn’t want one event to reflect how we do all our events.
We were calling in the bridal party while the staff at Beckwith Point in New Rochelle was boarding up the windows during hurricane Sandy. That night turned out to be a great wedding. So we say, “if you’re crazy enough to show up to a party during a storm then we’re crazy enough too”.
Surprisingly a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation. Keep in mind that this is a service business. If you feel that the service is satisfactory, it is very appreciated to give the staff a little something extra to let them know you liked it. Remember, the entertainment is most likely not the only one providing a service for your event, don’t forget your banquet managers and if you have photographers, videographers, limo, etc… Is it necessary to tip….? No, and not everyone does, but its very appreciated. There is no wrong amount.
We love requests because it lets us know the type of music our clients love. Upon leaving a deposit and signing your contract we will provide you with forms to fill out that will give us all the information we will need for you event. We will have another meeting about a month to two months before your event to go over these forms and to make any necessary last minute song changes.
Yes! We carry up to 2 million dollars in liability coverage. Most catering halls require this from their vendors.
All we need to book a date is a deposit of $300-$1000 pending on services chosen. We accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards. (no AMEX please) Only at the time of deposit will we know the availability of a date and who we have available. Unfortunately we can not hold a date without a deposit.
GOBO stands for “Goes Before Optics”. It is a custom made disk that we have shipped from California with an image (usually a monogram or your names) printed onto it. It is then used it in a projector that will project the image onto dance floors or walls. It is another great addition to make your event even more personalized.
