Do you play all styles of music?

Did we fail to mention our massive music library of over 80,000 songs? At Cuttin the Rug Dj, we play everything - from Rock, Jazz and Country to Alternative, Dance and Disco. From 80s to Oldies and Polkas to Big Band, Motown and more! We know that the key to being a successful DJ is understanding how to weave in and out of different styles of music in order to keep the party going. We will do our best to get all of your guests involved.

Do you play requests?

Absolutely. Playing your guests requests is a very important part of our job. Should a guest make a request that seems inappropriate for the occasion, we will work with that guest to find something to their satisfaction. Of course, the bride and groom will always have their requests played right away. After all, it's your big day ... not ours. If you specify that you do not want a specific type of music played your request will come over all others. Its your day to remember.

Can we pick the songs that will be played at our party?

Absolutely! Our goal is to provide you with the music that you want to hear. Some couples are very music-oriented and will provide us with a long list of music to play. Other couples simply tell us to play whatever it takes to keep the dance floor full. Either way, you can rest assured you will have an opportunity to discuss the music selection in great detail before your big day ... and we will be sure to do it YOUR WAY. At Cuttion the rug DJ, you are the boss!

What kind of equipment do you use?

As you might imagine, great sound is of great importance to us at Cuttin the Rug DJ. Our DJs use only the latest professional sound and lighting equipment. All music is played from MP3s; we use cordless hand-held microphones and high-quality speakers ... and we provide a truly elegant light-show which will complement your reception perfectly.

Do you have back-up equipment?

At Cuttin The Rug DJ, we have a plan and a back-up plan in place. We would never send our DJs to an event without reliable back-up equipment. Of course good equipment means nothing if your DJ doesn't also double as a great sound engineer and technical troubleshooter. Which means if there's a technical problem on your big day ... that problem will be solved.

My friend said he'd DJ my wedding for $200. What's the difference between you and him?

Selecting the right DJ is one of the most important decisions you will make on your wedding day. After all, he won't just be playing music, he will be the Master of Ceremonies who coordinates your entire affair so that it runs smoothly. You need an experienced professional to handle that responsibility, not a hobbyist. Friends do not let friends hire them as wedding DJs. It is a recipe for disaster.

So, what should my wedding DJ cost?

Well unfortunately, the bad ones are a dime a dozen. There is an important rule when it comes to selecting the right DJ for your wedding day: if he costs less than your vegetable tray, you've got a problem. At Cuttin the Rug Dj we dont believe in charging those outrageous rates. You can rest assured however, at Cuttin the Rug DJ, we only sound expensive. Our competitively priced all-inclusive packages are a tremendous value ... In fact, whoever's paying for the wedding DJ will probably be dancing down the aisle when they see our prices. . How's that for music to your ears?

What happens when you hire a cheap, unreliable, unprofessional wedding DJ?

HINT: They end up on FOX-2 Problem Solvers.

Do you charge any hidden fees?

No way absolutely not! Even though many DJ companies get away with this type of scam, we refuse to do business in this manner. You will only be charged the amount on the contract. Period. At Cuttin the Rug DJ we pride ourselves on conducting business with 110% integrity!

Can we come to see you perform at another event?

Wedding Crasher's Movie Cover

The answer is no and here's why. Weddings are private affairs. We wouldn't invite strangers to your wedding to see us perform. Likewise it would be unprofessional of us to invite you to someone else's wedding. We realize many bridal magazines recommend this tacky practice, and that many of our competitors allow this. In reality however, it is both an inappropriate and ineffective way to research your DJ. Why you ask? Because you really won't get a complete picture of what the DJ is all about: How will you know if he was there on time? If he played the right bridal songs? If he pronounced everyone's name correctly? If he played requests? If he was organized and helped coordinate the evening's events? We've all seen what can happen when "wedding crashers" show up to a reception uninvited. At Cuttin the Rug DJ, we know of a better way for you to research your DJ Company.
