Song List & Music Selection
When do I get to use the Online Music/Event Planner?
As soon as we have received your booking form and $100 deposit we will setup your account and send you a password.If you don’t receive it then give us a call and we will set it up manually.
Do you carry all the songs that are on the music list?
95%. If there are specific songs you would like to make sure are there on the night, please let us know before hand or bring them yourself on CD or USB stick.
Are there more songs in your library than are on your list?
Yes. The list we have available for download is only 40 pages long however the full list is over 400 pages long, so therefore the list you will normally receive is only a sample of our actual music list. Our current music list is also available as a part of our online music planner so you can search the whole list there. If there are specific songs you want please be sure to let us know before your event.
What do I do with the music list?
In the past we would ask our clients to highlight our music list however now with our online music planner you can view and search our song list online . If you have not yet made a booking, please ask for a trial account and then you can log in and find our music search tool within the music planner on steps 4 and 5.
Can I bring along some of my own music collection on CD or USB drive?
Yes. In fact if you have any CDs from your own collection you are welcome to bring them along for the DJ to play (MP3 CDs/USB sticks are preferred). We must remind you however that it is your responsibility to collect them at the end of the event.
Will the DJ take requests on the night?
Your Discosource DJ will aim to make everyone happy and in doing so he will try to play all requests so long as they are not out of context with the current style of music being played. If a bizarre request(example. request for ‘Heavy Metal’ whilst the DJ is playing Top 40) is made the DJ will usually consult with the client before playing the song.
What about the songs I DON’T WANT played?
If there are particular songs that you don’t want your DJ to play you can make a list of genres and songs on our online music/event planner. There are some songs such as ‘Grease Megamix’ or ‘The Nutbush’ that people either hate or love but until you let us know, we are in the dark, so keep us informed.
The Event & The DJ
Do we need to provide anything for the DJ?
Yes. Please have a table ready for the DJ which is approximately 1 – 2 meters wide and waist height. Does the five hours in the general package include setup or is that five hours of music? The DJ will arrive half an hour to forty-five minutes prior to the start time (noted on the deposit sheet) and then play music for five hours.
Can I get more than the standard 5 hours?
Yes. If you would like extra hours at the event note how many hours you would like on the online booking form.
What if I don’t know until the night of the event that I may want extra hours? Can I get extra hours on the night of the event?
Yes. If you would like extra hours on the night simply select a tick box on the online booking form that extra hours may be required and then let the DJ know at end of the event. If you do not notify us prior that extra hours may be required then it is up to the DJ.
How long will the DJ take to setup?
The DJ should take no longer than twenty minutes to setup all of the equipment after it has been loaded in.
Does the DJ have a microphone?
Yes. All our DJs carry a microphone with up to 5 meters length.
Can the DJ act as an MC for the event as well?
The DJ is able to make brief announcements but if you would like a professional MC you will have to speak to us before the event so that an MC can be arranged. If you require a full MC Service for your wedding the DJ will be $100 extra.
Does the smoke machine affect people with asthma?
No. The smoke machine is actually not smoke at all, it is a specially designed, odorless liquid vapor crafted to add effect to the lighting. This vapor is totally harmless to people who may suffer from asthma.
Do I get to meet the DJ before the night?
We are not a budget DJ service but in order to stay competitive we do not offer a consultation with the DJ before the night. We can however get the DJ to call you shortly after you make a booking or in the week of your event to discuss your music preferences, ultimately our online music planner has been created to remove any mis-communications that may happen between yourself and the DJ. If it is absolutely imperative for you to meet the DJ then let us know and for an extra charge we can arrange an appointment.
