TOP 10 THINGS WE DO NOT DO!
#1) HIDE FEES
Some DJs in NJ are putting an 18% gratuity within their fine print. Sounds To Go DJs have a great reputation because we don’t play games. Ever. No hidden fees, tricks, or tax. If a DJ Company is charging you tax… run! You cannot charge tax for a service.
#2) PLAY WITH PROPS
So the YMCA was cool in the 80’s—enough said. No silly tribal wear, or hard hats happening here (yes, other companies are still doing this). Sounds To Go adjusts with the times, instead of getting stuck in them.
#3) BUMP N’ GRIND
It’s one thing for the DJ to get on the dance floor and “try” to dance, but it’s another thing to get up close and personal. We treat your guests as paying clients, and leave busting a move to them.
#4) PLAY TONS OF CHEESY LINE DANCES
We understand that your wedding is not a line-dancing seminar. The electric slide had its place in history, and yes, we can use them in moderation without overdoing it. We pack dance floors fast, and play the music you request.
#5) STEAL YOUR SPOTLIGHT
Your wedding day is about you and your guests having a great time — not about the DJ who failed to make Broadway, and wants to treat your special day like his own one man show. You won’t see us in your pictures and videos making that well known, too cool DJ face.
#6) TALK TOO MUCH
Time after time, we meet with potential brides who explain that the last wedding she went to the DJ would not stop talking. It’s simple: we motivate when we need to, and let our mixing do the talking.
#7) PUSHY, PUSHY
Another thing we hear from potential brides who come in to meet with us after meeting with other NJ DJ companies is that they are so, so pushy. Of course everyone wants to make the sale, but being aggressive is just not our style.
#8) NOT BRING BACKUP
Imagine your wedding with no music? Well, it happens when DJs don’t bring backup equipment. Technology does and will fail— it’s just a matter of time! We’re always ready with 3, or 4 backups.
#9) WEAR INAPPROPRIATE ATIRE
Your wedding is a classy, fun, upscale, and once in a lifetime occasion. You’re dressed to the 9’s, and so are we. No sequined vests, sneakers, or MC Hammer tuxedo pants here!
#10) BRING AN ENTOURAGE
Lately, we’ve noticed DJs bringing in their own photographers and videographers to weddings in order to capture themselves performing. They do this in order to market themselves after your wedding. Sounds To Go DJs focus strictly on you, and the dance floor— not the next couple.
