We can mix music from computers, iPods and CDs to ensure continuous music throughout the evening of entertainment. Please view our equipment highlights for more info!

Do you have backup entertainers in case of an emergency?

YES, we have backup entertainers. We always staff for more entertainers than we need so that we have someone available for an emergency situation. Each team of entertainers is equipped with a cell phone for emergency situations. Each entertainment team calls in to the office upon arriving at the facility. We then coordinate with each show to make sure there are no problems before going into the evening of entertainment.

How much planning goes into MY event?

For our DJ’s to be fully prepared for your event, there are actually many tasks and a lot of coordination that need to be accomplished such as the routine necessities of having professional dressware, maintaining the equipment, and scouting out the location, when possible, for your event. Your DJ is out out and about during the week searching for that special song you requested and preparing playlists that conform to the format you have chosen. A typical day of the event can consist of several hours of loading and unloading equipment, both at the event and back at the office along with travel, setup and programming time. In addition to the performance time when you actually see your DJs a lot is happening behind the scenes with paperwork, research and preparation. Often a wedding and reception can be an eight hour day or longer for our DJs. That’s why our DJs love what they do!

What is your payment/cancellation policy?

All payments can be made via cash, cashier’s checks, personal checks, or money orders.
Please make checks payable to: Spotlight DJ’s.
The reservation fee is needed with the signing of the contract and this payment is non-refundable.
If a postponement occurs, we will work with you to honor the original payments towards the new date.
How do you work with the hall and other wedding professionals?
We call your facility the week before to go over all details prior to your event. At the event, we work closely with the caterer, photographer, and others to create a fun yet professional atmosphere.

Is your company insured?

YES, in the unlikely event that something should happen, our company carries liability protection for each of our DJ performances.
