AAlthough not your only concern I'm sure. I know everybody has to work to some sort of budget. I am confident that I can offer you the best value in terms of dollars and service. ?Cost is largely dependent on your requirements.

QHave you worked at our venue before.. it has sound restrictions?

AI have DJ'd at many venues around Auckland and Franklin. I am an experienced DJ so know how to cope with different venues. ?A selection of excellent recommended wedding venues I have DJ'd at: ?The Wharf- Toto- Carringtons- Castaways-Fernz-Formosa Resort-Hyatt Regency-Footbridge Lodge-Howick Club-Northridge Country Club- Auckland Golf Club- Ellerslie Convention Centre-Alexander Park- Waipuna Lodge-Aotea Centre- Mantells- Beaufords- Langtons- Highwic/Clifford House- Duders- McHughes- Romfords- Kumeu Valley Estate- Gracehill Vineyard- Gulf Harbour Yacht Club-Takapuna Boating Club. I also sometimes DJ outside of Auckland. ?A. With regards to sound restrictions. The professional sound systems I use can be altered to produce less bass which is the main cause of problems. At weddings and functions I do not blast guests. The volume is always monitored and adjusted in accordance with venue and guests.

 

QHow will you and your equipment look at our wedding?

AI believe when you go to the expense of hiring an elegant venue it should not be spoilt by huge ugly speakers and lighting rigs. I use black table skirts and place equipment discreetly. I incorporate LED up lighting to enhance your venue. When the dancing starts I use sound activated LED lighting and modern laser effects that do not blind your guests. I wear smart black shoes, trousers and black shirt. ?I have seen DJ's show up in casual jeans, grubby shirt, or sneakers... not just the cheap ones. ?Don't let the DJ and his equipment ruin the look of your day when you have invested so much in it.
