What is the Guest Request?
As an option, your Guests will have full access to my music database to create their own playlists.
What type of equipment do you use?
I use high-end professional audio equipment. Depending on the size of your event this can vary from a small setup to a large elaborate one. My fee includes all equipment such as speakers, lighting and microphones.
I’m not sure what type of music I want?
This dilemma is always a popular one. This is why you call on my assistance when planning your event. I am well equipped to assist you with any music needs. Often people leave it up to me to ‘go with the flow’. This is a risk-free approach as I am a great reader of what the crowd wants.
What types of music do you carry with you?
In the current world of digital media, gone are the days where I would lug around crates of vinyl or extensive CD cases. All of my music collection is now completely digital. This is great for you as there is very little chance that I don’t have your song request with me. It’s always a good idea to check with me before the event for specific songs.
What if I have special musical needs?
When it comes to special cultural music, this will need to be provided by you before the event. This can be easily organised.
Do you do personal consultations?
In the most part, functions can generally be discussed over the phone and via email. I have found, however, that for Weddings it is great getting to know the newlyweds prior to the event. This is especially important when assisting them with their special music. All consultations are included in the costs and can be conducted at any convenient location.
What areas in Melbourne do you service?
I have no real defined limits as to where I will play. I have been a DJ at many venues in the metropolitan Melbourne region, as well as those in outer regions. If your event is considered quite far, please make this clear in your Enquiry.
Can I extend my function time during the event?
This ultimately depends on venue staff in most cases. Weddings especially have very strict start and end times. In the event that you wish to extend my services, I am more than happy to accommodate this and my terms can be discussed at the time.
Do you communicate with venue staff?
One of the great aspects of my service is that I will take care of all the hassle of dealing with event coordinators with regards to the music. Simply pass on their contacts to me and I will discuss any special requirements with them directly.
Do you take requests?
Absolutely! One of the most important things as a DJ is pleasing the crowd, this almost always involves taking request. Often, especially for Weddings, song request lists are be provided before the night to be sure all favorites are played. Likewise, DO NOT PLAY lists are also becoming popular.
How loud do you play the music?
Loud enough to have you dancing! Often reception venues have their own sound-limit. These venues are within residential areas and are programmed to kill all sound if the volume peaks over a certain level. Sound levels can always be altered at any time during an event.
Are we required to feed the DJ?
Generally speaking, yes. Services provided for over 3 hours will require meals and refreshments that are to be provided at the clients cost. Most reception venues do provide discounted meals for entertainment. Feed the DJ for best results!
Can you also MC my event?
While I can and are happy to MC your event as well, with Weddings in particular, this is often left to friends of the family or venue staff. Keeping the DJ focused on the music can be a good idea.
Do I need to prepare anything for you on the night?
No. Everything I need will be organised well in advance with you and venue staff. Any last minute songs can be brought on the night as well.
When is the best time to make a booking?
The simple answer is the sooner the better! This will allow you to check this off your to-do list and also gives me ample communication time to get the music at your event perfect. Check the Booking Calendar to see if your date is free.
How much does it cost to hire Insatiable Nights?
This question is difficult to answer, as the cost of my service is dependent on the type and duration of the event. One thing you can be assured of is that it will be money well spent. Please describe your event when you make an Enquiry
Are there any hidden costs involved?
With Insatiable Nights there are no hidden costs involved in my service. All costs are discussed well before the event. I often get asked if costs include setting up and packing up times…well of course they do!
When and what are the payment methods?
