Are you a legitimate business?

Yes, Southern Cali DJ's is a legitimate business. If you have any concerns please talk to your DJ Consultant about the details and we will be glad to help you.

Do I have to sign a contract?

Yes. Other services you will be using that night make you sign a contract as well. The importance of a written agreement between both you and the entertainment is also very important. All terms of the event should be in writing to avoid any misunderstanding at a later date. Every booking is confirmed by using a written contract, agreed upon and signed by the client as well as the DJ Consultant.

How loud will it be?

Don't you hate that loud speaker that you are sitting next to? Well You don't have to worry about that with us. We keep our speakers on stands and project the music over the tables or direct it toward the dance floor and we make sure that all music is played at a respectable level.

What type of Events do we cater to?

We specialize in Wedding receptions and corporate functions. Our services also include Anniversary Parties, Engagement Parties, Birthday's, Class Reunion's, School Functions & Holiday Parties and more.

Do we play all types of music?

Our digital music library is gigantic & completely on compact disc and MP3. We play the music that you request before your event or according to the type of function we are at. Our DJ's also read the crowd to make sure that we play the music that your guests want to hear. Plus, our library is so large that you can count on us having anything from Big Band to today's hottest dance music.

How will you dress?

We will dress properly to your event. Unless notified differently from you. Other occasions require us to dress either in suit, shirt and tie, or business casual, we also have different theme accessories for Holiday and Halloween parties.

What happens if your equipment goes down or the DJ can't make it?

We always have extra equipment at every function and we have other paid DJ's that are on call if an emergency comes up.

When you call to find out about availability and pricing you will be talking to someone who has been in the industry for years and knows what it takes to make your event a successful and memorable one. If you want a professional DJ with an outgoing personality, to help coordinate your special event, then please consider Southern Cali DJ's. My digital sound systems and amazing light shows are the perfect compliment to your special evening. It doesn't matter if you have a small gathering or large wedding, Southern Cali DJ's has the experience and equipment to cater to your needs.

WILL YOU PLAY THE MUSIC I REQUEST?

Absolutely! One option is to create a list like"Must play list", "Play if possible list" and a"do not play list" directly from our web site. Another option is to give us percentages of each genre on our event planning guide and let the DJ read the crowd and use his experience. Naturally, you can do a little of both too.
Our music covers everything from the 1930s big band era through the current hits of today. Our online play list consists of over 5,000 titles, and our entire library includes over 50,000 titles. Your DJ will also be happy to play any CDs you decide to bring.

  1. HOW MANY SONGS I CAN PRE-SELECT?

To avoid customers going overboard and giving us more songs than we can play within the contract times, we limit your pre-selected requests to 20 "must plays" and 20 "play if possible".  This is a total of 40 songs which is roughly 2.5 hours of music.  If you provide your DJ with a list that long, that usually leaves no room for the DJ to use his experience to read the crowd or take requests.  PLEASE let us know well in advance if that is your intention!  If you are creating a list for a wedding reception, there is no need to include any special dances on this list since it will be on your planning form.

WHEN WILL OUR DJ BE SCHEDULED, AND WHEN CAN WE SPEAK WITH HIM?
 

As soon as your planning form and music requests are submitted, we can schedule your DJ.  We customize your event based on various criteria including your choice of personality, music, age breakdown of your guests and your specific song list (optional).  Many customers change their mind about these options as their date approaches, and we want to give you the best matched DJ.  If these options change, you may need a different DJ.  Therefore, it is in your best interest to have all options available to you as close to the date as possible.

Since we know the strengths and weaknesses of all our DJs better than anyone, you do not have to worry about forgetting to ask the important questions.  Also, keep in mind our DJs do 3-6 weddings per month and the closer to your date they speak with you, the less likely details will not be lost or confused.  So essentially, you are picking the DJ by telling us what you want.  Your DJ will usually call you 2 weeks prior to your event.  If you would like to have your DJ call you earlier - simply ask.

WHAT TYPE OF PERSONALITY SHOULD I CHOOSE?
We have 3 personalities you can choose:  Low key (Speak only when necessary), Med (Announcements and Introductions), High (Vary talkative and interactive).  Personality is strictly "verbal interaction on the microphone", and has little to do with music.  The chart below may help you decide what is best for you.

WHO WILL BE OUR DJ AND CAN WE VIEW HIM BEFORE OUR EVENT?

We employ almost 7 DJs, and will schedule your DJ based on how you fill in our comprehensive event planning guide.  This will give us a profile of what you want, and we will schedule the best matched DJ.  Your DJ will call you and go over all your details closer to your event.  This procedure gives you the most flexibility with changes and still allows you to know who your DJ will be before your event. 

Since each event is customized, you will rarely see what you want for your event, so seeing your DJ at another event rarely gives you insight of what will happen at your event.  Customers are free to schedule in-person consultations with an office manager to discuss their event before signing any contract.  You will have a phone consultation prior to your event with your DJ.  We DO NOT allow prospective clients to sit in on events! This is not professional and it is disrespectful to those customers.

WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT AND BOOKING TERMS?

In order to book our services, simply call and ask us to send you a contract.  A signed copy must be returned with a 20% deposit.  You may also E-Mail/Fax/Post Mail your signed contract and pay with Credit Card, Master card, Visa or Discover by clicking "Pay Online" on our website or over the phone.  Your balance is due 7 days before your event. Transaction fee may apply.

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

All our DJs use professional grade equipment such as Numark mixers, Stanton & Denon dual CD players, Yamaha, JBL and Mackie speakers, Crown & QSC amps, and UHF wireless microphones  or wired.

CAN YOU PROVIDE MUSIC IN A DIFFERENT ROOM THAN WHERE YOU ARE SET UP?

Yes, but there are many factors that may prohibit us from doing so.  We can put one speaker in one area and simply retract that speaker as long as the area is within 50-75 feet from the DJ table.  For an additional charge, you can also upgrade your package for a separate second system. Also we provide P.A systems for ceremonies.

Back to Top


DO YOU WORK WITH WEDDING COORDINATORS?
Absolutely!  Understand however, a professional wedding coordinator that you hire is different than the main contact at your hall/reception site.  The coordinator you hire for the day will be with you for the entire day - everywhere you go.  It is also important to let us know if your coordinator has FULL AUTHORITY to make decisions on your behalf such as music changes, changes to the timing and order of events, and/or special dance selections.  It is always best to have 1 person that can make decisions on your important day and we always assume that is you (the customer) unless you tell us otherwise.
