Our lights consist of colorful lights that have microchips that move to the beat of the music. We also have other small lights to help get everyone in the dancing mood!
- Do you have a back-up DJ in case of emergency?
I have approximately 5 helpers that can help me out if I need assistance. I am the primary DJ and then I have an assistant with me at every event. Even though I do have back up DJ's I have never missed a wedding in over 20 years.
- Do you play requests?
Absolutely! Our song list is available 24/7 online and we encourage the bride and grooom too review before the wedding and highlight the songs that they DO and DO NOT want played. We also have request books sitting out at events so all the guests can make requests if they want to.
- Will you put up a banner or sign?
The only sign that we have is on the front of our console system. It is a picture of two people dancing with our logo and name on it.
- How many (wedding) receptions have you performed at?
In 2019, LMD hit its 1000th celebration! Weddings, graduation parties, anniversaries, holiday parties just to name a few!
- May I see you perform at a wedding reception?
Definitely! Call us at 319-365-8454 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can let you know where I will be playing at in the next few weeks.
- How much do you charge?
I charge $950 for 5 hours of music. Travel fee is $40 within 30 miles from Cedar Rapids and $75 for over 30 miles from Cedar Rapids.
- Are you limited to only 4 or 5 hours?
No. We charge $60 per hour for each extra hour that we play. We book extra the night of the event so there is no need to book extra when you are signing the contract.
- How early do you arrive prior to a wedding reception?
We arrive at least 30 minutes prior to our actual start time. If guests arrive early we want to make sure that there is music playing for the guests so that way they do not enter a quiet reception.
- When do you set up?
Depending on where you are having your reception at, we try to set up as early in the day as possible. We make it a priority to be completely set up by the time your guests arrive at the reception. It usually takes us up to an hour to be completely set up and ready for the reception.
- How many people will be needed to help the DJ?
None, there is always myself and my helper and we can get it completely done by ourselves. If any of your guests want to help out, we always love fantastic helpers and extra muscles at the end of an epic party!
- Are you able to play continuous music?
Yes, we play music for the time designated in the contract. From cocktail hour to dinner to party music, we play throughout the night for your celebration.
- How much music do you have?
We have approximately 20,000+ songs in our music library plus new music arriving monthly.
- What type of music do you play?
Typically requested music from the bride & groom and guests. We usually do not play heavy metal or rap music. Probably the heaviest metal song played is AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" and the heaviest rap song is Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back."
- What type of lights do you have?
The lights are very colorful and move to the beat of the music. There are many lights but they provide a stage for having fun. Also we have light systems to bring color into the night.
- Do you need a microphone or CD player?
No, we bring all of the equipment.
- Do you need a draped table?
Yes. Preferably an 8 foot table. If you do not have the skirting we can skirt it ourselves.
- Are there any special needs for your equipment?
Usually all we need is a table and electricity and we are ready to party!
- How many breaks will you take, how often, and for how long?
We do not stop the music at all. We keep playing until we are done!
- What is the cancellation policy?
The $125.00 deposit is not refunded if an event is cancelled. If you want to reschedule the event we can do that, pending availability.
- Do you need to be fed at the wedding reception?
Although it is not a requirement, we always do appreciate being thought of at the meal time.
- Do you accept tips?
While tips are not required, they are incredibly appreciated! We consider a tip as a thank you and not mandatory. We work hard to make sure you don't have to on your big day so tips are a great way of saying thank you for a job well done!
