Dancing in the Dark

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: What kind of music do you play?

    A: The simple answer to this is: whatever you want us to play. Our DJs are experienced enough to know what music is and is not appropriate for your function. Our DJs have specialist knowledge of many different areas: Chart, Dance, RnB, Disco, Pop,60’s, 70s, 80s and 90s nights.
  • Q: Do you take requests?

    A: We will always play requests, in fact we encourage them. Many of our clients are now sending us their playlists in advance to ensure we play the music they want.
  • Q: How long do you need to set up and how much space do you require?

    A: Our DJs will normally be at the venue approximately one hour before the event is due to start, and an area approx. 4m x 2m is ideal. For larger functions more time (and space) may be required.
  • Q: What will the DJ wear?

    A: Our dress code is smart casual, however, shirt & tie or black tie will be worn upon request.
  • Q: What about Health & Safety – is your equipment tested?

    A: Health and safety is extremely important to us, all our equipment is Portable Appliance (PAT) tested annually in accordance with the Health & Safety Executive, Electricity at Work Act 1989. A copy of your DJ’s current test certificate is available on request.
  • Q. My Mum is worried that the music will be too loud and our guests won’t be able to hear themselves talk, will that be a problem?

    A: That is a very valid question and we are always sensitive to making sure the volume is set to the correct level for everyone to enjoy the function. Furthermore we will always adjust the volume during the course of the evening, if required.
  • Q. We have a wide age group attending. Can you get them all dancing?

    We have a wealth of experience within the Wedding Industry and are very used to performing to a wide age range and keeping the dance floor busy by simply changing the musical style constantly throughout the night. That way no one gets bored. We are used to ‘reading’ a dance floor and will know what to play next and are used to playing music for all age groups.
  • Q. Will you play ‘tacky’ songs such as The Birdie Song and Agadoo?

    We get asked this question almost daily. It is your event, so we will play the music that you want. However we do have a few tracks that have not made it into our database for reasons of taste and credibility. The songs mentioned above have not made it in to our database.
  • Q. How far in advance do I need to book?

    A. The short answer is as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.
