Describe your DJ style:
Our style is tailored to suit your needs and wants. We were born in the mobile industry and understand how important a party's music is to a parties success. We encourage all our clients to put together play lists and do not play list to help guide us in your likes and dislikes. 

What is your usual attire?
Depending on the event our DJs and staff dresses however you choose. Generally for less formal events we dress in collared polo company shirts and for weddings and other formal events you will find our staff in black suits. We always look classy, well groomed and well kept.

If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We can get just about any song but we don't have everything. We accept all music and can be provided to us on a CD or preferably in MP3 format. We also have a way of connecting smart phones, tablets and iPods to our system for songs to be played. We encourage you to supply any music you wish and especially any unique or special songs or cuts of songs unique to you or your event.

How many other DJs do you work with?
We have 8 professional 5 Star rated DJs and staff that work for us in the Connecticut, New York and Western Mass area and we are affiliated with companies all across the nation. Links to our 5 star rating can be found under our reviews section.

Do you have a minimum amount of time?
We don't have a minimum for our DJs but on other services there is a minimum and maximum.

Can we meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely. We actually encourage it! Especially for weddings, Sweet 16s and Mitzvahs it is crucial that you, our staff and your other vendors are all on the same page so that your event runs as smoothly as possible.

Do you bring your own equipment?
We have several sizes of systems and can supply multiple systems and extra speakers too. Our basic backup system is a direct copy of our main system so that any down time, in the unlikely case of equipment failure, would be kept to a minimal.

Do you offer lighting, other kinds of performers and personalized gifts with your service?
Everything! From videographers to photographers with a combined 50 years of experience. Custom gifts including individual monogrammed place settings and custom wedding gifts. Full power and lighting set ups including remote power set ups for those out of the way intimate settings, up lighting, custom go-bo's with personalized messages and endless lighting options! Kids acts including magicians, clowns, face painters, costume characters (including all the popular kids show characters) and even the circus if you like. Photo booth rentals, party motivators, our custom "scene setter" room and furniture rentals all available. Contact us today and lets see how we can entertain you!

How much time do you usually need to set up?
Generally we allow an hour for set up and tear down. But in the case of a wedding, mitzvah or Sweet 16 we generally will arrive on site about an hour and half to two hours prior to the start.

Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
A 6 foot rectangular table is preferred but an 8 foot table will work as well. If not able to provide we do rent DJ tables for $25.

Do you have any extra space requirements?
Depending on the service being provided space is usually not an issue. We do ask that our staff be provided with a 6 foot table with table cover and 1-2 chairs if possible.

Do you usually emcee?
The DJ is also an MC here at B_entertained and we can do everything from make basic announcements to make your guests feel welcome to full wedding party introductions. We also offer separate wedding, Sweet 16 and Mitzvah Emcee's who are experts at their types of events and have years of experience getting crowds involved from a Sweet 16 or Mitzvah game to having a crowd clapping and cheering as you enter for the first time as husband and wife our specialty emcees make each party special.

Are we required to provide you a meal?
A meal for the DJ or staff is not required but is very much appreciate by our staff and hard working professionals. 

What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We take pride in saying that no one else in the industry is like B_entertained as we have on call DJs and staff ready in case of such an emergency. 

What is your overtime rate?
We generally discuss overtime up front and depends on the circumstances and services being provided.

Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Typically, we do not charge for normal travel within 100 miles of one of our locations but additional parking fees may apply.
