Do we take requests?
Yes, and we play them! We bring thousands of songs to each event. Your special requests are important to us, and you event get an Online Client Login to help you organize and choose your songs! If we don’t have them, then we will buy them.
Do we take breaks?
No. Breaks are not taken unless specified by the client. Amp Event Professionals provides continuous music unless an announcement is being made on the microphone.
Do we play from a pre-programmed playlist?
No. The music is played at each event is generated 2 ways:
1. Requests: Clients can choose their music. Simply by writing selections and giving them to the DJ, one week prior to the event. Guests can make requests through the DJ.
2. Reading the Crowd: This is where the DJ plays a variety of music based on certain guest criteria including the most common one, age. When the DJ feels he has read the crowd and found what they like, he customizes the music selections accordingly.
When will my DJ arrive to setup for my event?
We arrive at least 2 hours prior for setup so we can be sure our equipment is test and ready to go upon guest arrival. We will coordinate this with your venue prior to the event date.
How will the DJ be dressed at your event?
You can decide! The DJ may be dressed in a Suit, Polo or Dress Shirt. Whatever you choose, you can be assured that it will be tasteful and professional. The following attire descriptions should help in making a decision:
Formal: Suit to match event colors
Semi-Formal: Black Shirt and Black Slacks
Business Casual: Company Polo with Black slacks
Casual: Company Polo with Jeans
We will never come to your event in jeans (unless the client specifies otherwise). We base our attire off professionalism which always include at minimum a polo with slacks.
