These are a list of commonly asked questions being answered by Electric Blue Entertainment Djs.
A: We mostly just do weddings, I would guess it is about 90% of our business. We do a little work with cooperate events, schools etc… but it has been a couple years since we have been seen in a club or bar. For references we have a wall of our office covered with thank you letters, and quite a bit of reviews that can be found online.
Our library has been growing since 1986, and as of today we have over 20,000 songs on hand, and we are always willing to purchase anything that is needed by our clients.
Our library contains over 20,000 songs, so a complete list is not really a manageable thing to pass out. We do give our clients a top 200 which is the most common wedding/party music that can be found. It is a very easy way for them to give us a broad stroke of their likes and dislikes. Other than that, we tell them they can choose anything they want, and at that point we are limited to music that is no longer available for purchase that we don't already own.
We do not use assistants, but some of our performance packages do have more than one DJ. Other than that, we try to get a new DJ hired every other year or so, and our training requirement is one year, so on occasion there will be someone extra. There are seven DJs at Electric Blue now, we are hoping to start training an eighth in the middle of summer.
Our Djs emcee and facilitate as well as coordinate all that goes on during a reception. We typically are not driving the flow of things as the timeline from the beginning through the end of dinner is determined by the hall. After dinner is cleared we like to let our clients go at the pace they want, though we offer to put them on a schedule if they like, otherwise we will just let them know if something (first dance etc…) is getting a bit overdue.
We have Seven DJs who work for us exclusively, so we put the DJ who is the best fit based on your tastes and likes, if you want a certain DJ you can request them.
Wishes more than requirements. We have never had a building rewired per our request. We would like to have at least two 20A circuits or better within 30' of where we are setting up, but it doesn't always happen, so we make what we have available work.
Yes, and it is available for any toasts and speeches that will happen.
Any legitimate venue will provide necessary space for our set up, but we have had to fit in some pretty tight spots before. Ideally we like 8' table better than a 6' though 6' is fine. We would like about three feet on either side of the table for speaker stacks, and lighting trees, but we can make anything work.
Part of our philosophy is to focus on DJing weddings and that is it. Video, pictures, and other decorating should be done by people expert in video, pictures and decorating. We have up lighting and we will work with video montage people, or other vendors you want to make your wedding special, but other than that, we are there to provide you with the best music and sound for your wedding.
Absolutely, we tell our clients they literally have as much or as little control of the music as they like. The range we are willing to work in is from the client picking nothing, to picking every song of the night. We don't recommend that, but we will do it. The recommendation we do give is for them to pick a third, for us to pick a third and to leave a third open for requests. They of course can ignore this, but it is a nice guideline.
Everything has a back up including the DJ. We keep someone available every weekend just in case there is an emergency. In twenty one years, it has not been needed, but everyone sleeps better knowing a back up is there.
The deposit that had been paid goes into our credit file and can be used or even applied to a friend in many cases within five years. We have actually applied canceled deposits as old as 8 years; we are pretty easy going about it.
The deposit is typically half, though is some cases, especially with our bigger packages it can be quartered. A deposit is not required for us to sign off on a date and get it locked in, for that we just activate a contract and set the deposit due date to retain the hold from there. It is usually about two weeks from the start of the contract. The clients signature is not required on the contract to start this process so they have no obligation to us, but they can still make a reservation.
Not really, I wouldn't want to say a flat no, but I can't imagine a valid reason for adjusting the legal language. The variable elements of a contract, times location etc. can be adjusted as much as needed even after signing, we have no motivation to stick clients with a service that doesn't suit them perfectly.
Yes, simply using our service saves a lot of money. We have put a lot of effort into being the least expensive full time DJ operation in the Chicago market. Most full time companies offer a lot less at about a 30% - 40% greater cost. Outside of that, we have not inflated our prices to the point where we can afford deals and discounts. We do offer a military discount of $100.00 and that is all.
