FAQ from DJ Neil
1. What is the cost for a DJ session? – The price largely depends on the event, the venue, the time required, and the ‘day of the week’ (eg: Saturday nights are more expensive than a Friday night). Please contact me (link to the contact page) via the contact form, and I will call you or email you with a full ‘no hidden charges’ fixed price quote.
2. Is there a booking fee? – No! As much as you might be surprised, DJ Neil does not accept a booking or cancellation fee. The reason for this is, I get most of the functions as a referral of guests seeing me at a wedding or party, and the chances of them cancelling a function is very rare!. In the 20 years of DJing, I can recall about 4-5 cancellations.
3. How much notice does DJ Neil need? – The earlier the better!. At least 4-6 months notice is advisable to avoid disappointment.
4. What are the differences between a dj, a live band and a juke box? – A juke box in my opinion is only good if you want some background music at a cocktail party, and do not require (and I repeat do not require) any of the guests to dance. If you want the guests to have a good time, and have a dancing session, then you really need a DJ. There is a huge difference in what a DJ can do to a party. The DJ will ensure that every one goes home humming a few dance tunes played on the night, as well as ensure they have a great time dancing to the ‘golden oldies’
