 :::  ANSWERS  :::

 

 

1.  What cities do you service?

     We are pleased to announce that we can do your event. Being that, we do events all over the entire country.

2.  Are you Insured and why is this important?

Yes! We are insured. The reason why this is extremely important is that most venues (the locations where events are held at) now require that any dj service you hire must be insured and that they must provide proof of that insurance in advanced. Added, many venues also require specific wording for coverage.  Although some venues will straight out inform you of this requirement; usually this is not the case - as most - will place it in the terms of your contract in very complicated legal terms and in the smallest fine print and won't even use the term dj but rather "vendor" and most don't tell (you) the client, that this is required until a week or two before the event so that they may offer you their preferred dj service.

On a side note; we have never ever "All to the Glory of God" have to ever had use our insurance or have we ever had a claim placed against us.  Which means we're not only responsible we're careful to.

 

3.  I've tried calling but can't get through?

The main reason for this is simple. We are the number one Christian DJ Service in the country and because we do events all over the country we get calls in from all over the country; from good people just like you that are calling us for pretty much the same reasons you might be, like: to get more information.  So please, if we're busy when you call.  Leave us a detailed message including your full name, phone number with (area code), Date of event, Type of event, and a best time for us to call you back. Note: Should you chose our service; Being that your event is important to us and that we strive to offer great customer service - once we are contracted you should know that we provide all our clients with other numbers and means of direct forms of communication with us.

4.  Do you do other events besides Weddings?

        Yes! We can provide sound support, music, lighting & entertainment (if needed) for a variety of events. These include and cover everything from regular birthday celebrations to Youth Events, Church Anniversary Banquets (so you can give the local musicians a break and let them enjoy the event too), Singles Ministries,  Outings, Community Events, Concerts, CD Release Parties, Christian Artist Tour Support, Sectional & District Conventions, Christian School or Club Homecomings & Proms, etc.

5.  What are the advantages of hiring a DJ verses a Live Band, Soloist, or other entertainment?

The answer to this is many! First and most important is that we offer non-stop service from being to end.  Most Bands play in what is known in the music world as "sets".  After their "set" is done they usually and most often they take a 15 minute break.  Lets stay they took only ONE break every hour.  Using the math with the average reception time of 4 hours - they in turn would have taken 4 breaks - right?  Well, if you add it up that's ONE WHOLE HOUR OF TIME "YOU PAID FOR" and got nothing for it.  Aside from the fact and more        importantly - is that this stop n go effect usually tends to drag the party.  Being that just when things are kicking up that's when the band leaves for their break leaving you and your guest to go back to your seats to do nothing.  By the way you also need to keep in mind - that Bands and Orchestras are limited to the music they practice. Which may be only 30 to 40 songs compare that to the over 21,000 Christian Songs we have in almost every style and rhythm known to man.  Added, if your inviting grandma to the party - you'll want to remember that there is no "Volume Control" on LIVE Instruments!

        Soloist & other forms of entertainment on the other hand usually DO NOT carry around with full sound gear that includes speakers, amplifiers, cables, stands, mic's, mixers, and a sound technician.  Which means on top of hiring them your still going to have to spend money to hire a DJ for the sound gear.  Added, like the band option; they to... take breaks, and their music range is extremely limited to the styles of music that "the singer is comfortable singing" and not necessarily what your guest would like to hear.  Also, professional singers only sing for about a single hour at the most; allowing them to perform only 15 to 20 songs max.  Added, they do not offer assistance with planning your event or with dealing with your other vendors, neither will they host/emcee your event as many of them tend to book 2 and 3 events a night especially on the weekends.  So after their segment is over at your event - their gone.  And with multiple bookings it is almost guaranteed that will show up late of one of those events.  Now the question is: Would you mind; if it was your event that they got there late to and had all your guest waiting?  We think not. We on the other hand, only book one event per dj per day and will guarantee in writing to be at your venue a minimum of one hour prior to the start of the event.  We can supply all needed sound & lighting gear necessary - we don't take breaks - we assist managing your event - we coordinate with other vendors - we'll host / emcee your event from start to finish - and we carry an extensive variety of all styles of music within the Christian genre.

        National Average's of Cost of Services for Musical Entertainment:

           Professional Bands/Orchestras:  $4,000  -  $50,000

           Nationally Recognized Recording Artist/Soloist or even an imitator:  $2,000  -  $10,000 for ONLY 3 songs.

           DJ Services: $1,000 - $3,000

6.  I don't have a banquet hall yet; can I still reserve your services?

Yes! For us the important thing is the date. If you know without a shadow of a doubt that your event will take place on a certain date we can book your event even if you don't have a venue.

 

7.  What is the average time frame needed to conduct a formal reception event like a Wedding, Sweet Sixteen or Quince?

4 to 6 hours.

8.  I've never planned an event before, can you help me organize what all will happen?

Yes! After we have been officially contracted to be your event dj service; we will first schedule consultations with you in order to find out your likes and dislikes and then adapt them to any format you chose for us to execute your event.  With our years of experience we have lots of knowledge in event management and can assist you by offering you different suggestions should you need them that you can use to make your event unique.  Therefore we can do your event in a more traditional way according to the event your going to have or we can go completely contemporary.  The bottom line is that it is your event and we'll do things the way you want them and we'll assist you every step of the way. 

9.  You guys seem great but what are your prices?

        Well we can tell you, that we are not your $200 dollar "I just started in the dj business" dj service.  Nor are we, thee most expensive in the land.  As those can usually charge you anywhere from 5 to10 thousand dollars for even basic services.  Our prices however start from an average of $500 dollars and it goes up from there; depending on the date of event, level of service, performance time, number of guests, travel & lodging (if needed), whether or not its a private or ecclesiastical/(ministry related) event, the amount of dj audio, sound and lighting equipment required, and a number of other factors.  That said we have 3 service plans that can fit most people looking to have a great time at their event with an experienced, reputable, and insured Christian DJ Service. 

        So just give us a call - so you can discuss with us the specifics of your event in detail; therein allowing us to go over our service plans and other pricing options with you.

 

10. Aside from being my DJ can you be my Master of Ceremonies / Emcee my event?

        Yes!

 

11.  I have a secular love song for my first dance... can you play it for me?

        In most cases the answer is Yes!  However all secular songs must first be reviewed and approved by ChristianDJs.net before the event takes place.

 

12.  Half of my guest are not Christians; so can you play regular secular songs throughout the event?

        Noop.  Sorry, outside of "your program" which usually can include up to and no more than 3 secular songs - we by our part do not play secular music. Note, if your not going to allow your guest any smoking or drinking then you shouldn't really allow for secular music.  Now think about it - what better time is there to share with your family and friends the best that Christian Music has to offer than while at your special event.  Remember they can always turn on their car radios and tune into the same old worldly songs right after the event is over if they want.  But in the mean time lets share with them the true Love and genuine Joy that is only found in Christ.  Added we have almost every beat your family and friends would want to listen and dance to with the great exception that it is all clean, uplifting, and positive music.

 

13.  Why do I see people dancing in photos of your events "if you are" a Christian DJ service?

         Well,  go grab your Bible and let's see what it says regarding the subject.  Please take your time and not only read the verses noted below but rather the whole chapter so YOU can absorb the full context of what your reading.  Added, take a moment to pray and seek God's wisdom & revelation regarding this matter, so that you may do things in accordance to what is pleasing to Him rather than to what's pleasing to man! 

         Important: The information that follows below is provided as a means for you to understand why we allow "family friendly dancing" at our events should the client want it.  It is not, nor is it intended by us to enter into any sort of theological debates. Therefore, you should please note: that if you for whatever reason do not want any dancing at your event that'll be just fine with us and we will happily respect your wishes.           That said, allow us to start with the first verse found in:

         Exodus 15:20 (Chapter 15 / Verse 20) - says:  "And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances."

         This moment is recorded in the Bible as the Israelites having just crossed the Red Sea and all of Pharaoh's Chariots are defeated as the waters closed. Here in this example; we have God's very own chosen people celebrating their freedom from 400 years of slavery & breaking out in song and dance.  By the way, they weren't in church (or in a like kind setting) neither were they "Dancing in the Spirit".

        

         1 Samuel 29:5  (Chapter 29 / Verse 5) - reveals:  "Is not this David, of whom they sang one to another in dances, saying, Saul slew his thousands, and David his ten thousands?

         This is very interesting! As this verse reflects and accounts for a story for which David's acclaim from the people of Israel (aka the Hebrews, aka the Israelites, aka What? Oh yes - God's Chosen) is brought into question and by way of that into the conversation itself between Achish and the princes of the Philistines.  The context of this verse as we bring it to you is that David's fame preceded him.  And that it was WELL KNOWN even to David's enemies; that the Hebrew people would sing his praises and dance to the songs they sang about him as well. 

         Therefore it is clear, documented, verified, and proven that the Hebrew people would use to sing and dance whenever there was a reason to celebrate!  Added, because like in this example; these songs and dances were directed to honor David instead of God; these dances would have had to been classified as "secular in nature" in other words God's people were just jamming to the beat while doing some "plain ol' regular dancing.

 

         Psalm 149:3  (Chapter149/ Verse 3) - tells us: "Let them praise his name in the dance."

         Psalm 150:4  (Chapter 150/ Verse 4) - also says: "Praise him with the timbrel and dance:..."

         Notice that both these verses - do not say: just sway from side to side in your church pew.  But rather, they are very clear in that you can praise God specifically - while dancing! 

 

         Ecclesiastes 3:4  (Chapter 3/ Verse 4) - shares with us that: "...there is a time to dance."

         Just like a when a Bride & Groom will kiss right after the Pastor marrying them says: I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU MAN & WIFE.  So should the couple with all their family and friends celebrate in the reception.  Why you ask?  Well simply put, because this is thee most appropriate time to do so.  Keep in mind, just because a couple is married doesn't mean they'll be kissing every Sunday during the morning service or while Pastor is preaching.  Why?  Because... this is not... the time for it.

         They are however allowed to passionately kiss - in Church - at The Altar - inches away from the Pastor's face - in front of the whole congregation - and most importantly in God's Presence - because THAT IS the appropriate time to do so.

         Therefore a Celebration such as a Wedding Reception, Birthday Party, Graduation, or even a Soldier's Homecoming is more than enough a reason... to rejoice all together as one great big happy family.  This of course, is done with... family and friends as well as with food, song, and of course - and again - we say with dancing and music.  Because THIS IS thee most appropriate time to do so.

 

        Matthew 11:16-17  (Chapter 11/ Verse 16 & 17) - states:  "But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,  17And saying,  We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented."

        Here we have Jesus himself; talking about the current condition of this generation.  Now although the main topic of these verses is about the Message of Salvation (or rather the lack of a response to it) by those who followed John the Baptist in the wilderness as well as, all the unrepented people of the cities for which He (Jesus) and the Disciples had went out to.  We find that Jesus is upset to know, that these people have heard the message and know the prophecies - YET - they are not reacting to it with the right response. Which is - to repent - acknowledge their wrong ways and accept Christ as their Savior.

        Therefore He uses an analogy that breaks down what He is saying. So that the common man can understand the point He's trying to get across.  Now in order for any analogy to work; you must use terms that your audience will understand.  So He uses & relates to things in accordance to the lifestyle they know...  Therefore, in verse 17 when He is talking about "...and ye have not danced;"  He is relating to the situation that He is seeing - that people aren't, responding to the message in the way they should by accepting Him.

        Therefore when correlating this analogy back to that situation that Jesus is seeing; we can clearly conclude that when you do hear music THE GOD GIVEN - CORRECT - & - EXPECTED RESPONSE is in fact: for you to be dancing to the beat!

 

        In summary, it is because we are a Christian DJ Service that you do in fact see all types of folks dancing at our events.  As we tend to want to go by and be obedient to what the God's Word - The Bible has to say about the subject instead of the man made rules by which many church denomination go by.  Remember, as Christian's we have real TRUE reason for celebration... to actually never stop singing and dancing if you think about it... and that of course is... because of our SALVATION through Christ. 

       Again as mentioned above, if you don't want dancing that is not a problem for us.  If anything, then you really need to hire our services so that we could use other interactions so that your event doesn't become another plain boring Christian event.  That said, for those who do allow dancing - please note that we never allow any obscene dancing gestures at any of our events.  As we are very mind full that all Christian Songs were in fact made to Praise and Worship first and foremost, the true King of Kings.

 

14.  I do not want any dancing at my event [WhatSoEver!!!] - can you still do my event?

        Yes! You are the client and it is your event - so - if you do not wish for any dancing we will respect your wishes and we we will accommodate your request by not verbally encouraging or by making any announcements to hit the dance floor.  We however cannot lasso and tie down your guest to their chairs.

 

15.  We only want soft jazz style music for the entire event, can this be done?

        Yes it can, but it won't be us that you'll be contracting.  And the reason for this is that ChristianDJs.net is most notably recognized for our intense level of guest interaction.  We will get your family, friends, community, and or church up out of their chairs to enjoy the party and help you to celebrate. Therefore, we can play a number of Christian Jazz / Instrumentals during a specific time frame for example for the dinner hour - however after that - with us it's time to PARTY.
