Frequently Asked Questions
We love to be transparent. If you can't find the answer to your question here please contact us for an immediate response.
What is the Clean Music Movement?
The Clean Music Movement simply means play family-friendly music. That doesn't just mean we play the edited versions of the song, it means we don't play inappropriate songs at all. Check out our permanent Do Not Play List, Grey Area List, and Typically Played list.
Is this your full-time job?
The short answer is yes. We take your special event seriously. Our management team and your selected DJ will spend over 15 - 25 hours of preparation for your event to ensure everything goes according to plan.
How do you come up with the song list for an event?
We are a part of the clean music movement so we don't play songs with cursing or explicit lyrics. Other than that, you are in control of the music. You will have access to your personalized online planner page on our website so you can create a list of songs the must be played and even songs you don’t want to be heard. We can either create a playlist based on the songs you chose or only play the songs you want.
How do you get the crowd pumped?
We are experienced in many methods of inviting everyone to the dance floor including playing time-tested hit songs and even starting the dancing ourselves. We are skilled at reading the crowd and keeping the energy high by the use of a wide range of approved genres. To see our DJ's music demos and performance videos click here.
How do you handle song requests?
Should you allow guests to request songs, we can provide you with a link to pass along to them. Your guests can pick songs before your event and you can approve them. During your event, we have a DJ assistant who can field requests for the DJ to play them at the appropriate time.
Can I hear some examples of mixing and blending different tracks?
We hate the awkward silences even more than you do. We enjoy blending songs together seamlessly in order to keep the energy high. Check out our music demos and videos on our DJs profile pages.
What sound equipment do you utilize? Do you have backup equipment?
We use the best in audio equipment so you hear every word nice, crisp, and at the perfect volume. We test every piece of equipment before every performance, set up early and conduct a sound test, and bring backup equipment just in case.
Have you played at our chosen wedding venue before? If not, can you make a site visit beforehand?
We have performed at most venues in Acadiana, Baton Rouge, New Orleans & the surrounding areas but if we have not performed at your venue we set up a site visit at least a few weeks before your event. We also develop a professional relationship with the owners/managers of the venues to be sure we comply with any rules or regulations they may have. Lastly, we go over the layout of the venue with you during our last meeting to ensure audio perfection.
Do we have our choice of DJ and/or Musicians to select from, or is one automatically assigned to us depending on date availability? What happens in the case of an emergency?
We have multiple DJs that you can choose for your event. We can also contract out some of the other best performers in the state that perform who uphold our high standard. We are in the process of hiring more DJs and wedding bands now so we will soon have even more options for you. This event is about you and we will do whatever it takes to make it unforgettable.
What other services do you offer?
We offer more inclusive services in our packages than most other entertainment companies. We also affiliate ourselves with the best in the business so what we can get you everything you need.
Why should I choose you for my event?
We put you, the client, first. Our only mission is to go above your expectations & beyond the DJ booth to create an exciting, unique, and conscientious musical experience fine tailored for your special event.
Tyrone was fantastic from start to finish! The guest really enjoyed the music and the kids loved dancing to all of the great songs. The PA system was extremely helpful for our graduation presentation. It was a great night and DJ TBuf made our celebration such a wonderful evening. Thanks so much, Tyrone!
