Here are some of the most popular questions from the thousands of wedding and event clients we have served.

We don’t think your wedding should be where a DJ trains. One of the most important days of your life shouldn’t be where a wedding DJ learns their craft. That’s why every Bunn DJ is required to have a minimum of 5 years of experience as a professional DJ and event host. That also means that they can’t just have 5 years of tinkering with mixing music on the weekends. They need established experience DJing weddings, parties, and corporate events on a professional level. What that translates to for you and your event is that you always get an experienced professional. Your wedding won’t be a DJs first event. Guaranteed. In fact, most of our event and wedding DJs have 10 years or more working in the entertainment industry. When you book a Bunn DJ, you know you’re getting quality and experience.

Poor equipment is the hallmark of an amateur event or wedding DJ. It’s also not something anyone booking a professional DJ service should have to worry about. But unfortunately, the reality of planning an event is that you need to know your vendor’s professionalism ahead of time. And a DJ is only as good as their gear. They may be the best at mixing music. But if the DJ equipment is an eyesore and their speakers crackle, no one remembers transitions. They remember how the sounds themselves hurt their ears and the DJ set-up was unsightly. That’s why at Bunn DJ Company, we only use cutting-edge equipment. No intrusive wires or busted speakers. Bunn DJ set-ups look as good as they sound.

While it’s by no means normal, occasionally incidents are unavoidable. And a big part of planning your event is having a contingency plan. You don’t want to be left high-and-dry at your reception or corporate retreat, after all. And if your DJ gets a flat tire or is struck by lightning en route to your event, we have a plan. When you book a Bunn DJ, you’re getting a Bunn DJ. It’s as simple as that. So we always keep a professional DJ on retainer at each of our locations. That way, in the (unlikely) event that something does happen to your DJ, you’ll still get a professional, experienced, and talented event or wedding DJ. Emergencies may be unavoidable, but that’s no excuse for your event to be music-less. When you book Bunn DJ Co., you know we’ll be there.

Bunn DJs do take song requests and often play many of them. But we also filter requests we get from guests. So if we get a request for a song or genre that you’ve specified a “Do Not Play,” we won’t play it. But, on the flip-side, if someone requests a song that fits well with your vibe and music choices, the DJ may play it. It’s important to remember that your DJ is an event professional. They know which tracks get the dance floor going and which ones may clear it out. And since Bunn DJs don’t just show up and press play on a pre-made set, we have the flexibility to react to the vibe of the crowd. We also offer an online planning system, so you can specify your tastes and favorite songs before the event. That way there’s no surprises.

Absolutely. Working with a professional wedding or event DJ is a partnership. And your DJ should be open to your musical preferences, and flexible enough to accommodate them. With that being said, we usually ask for your music in advance. Effective planning is what makes any wedding or event run smoothly. While not impossible, it is more difficult to add songs we don’t have mid-event. So if we get your tracks beforehand, we can make sure they’re ready to rock on the big day. With our event planning software, we can make sure we have all your requests beforehand. But if inspiration should strike day-of, we’re able to add songs on the spot. That’s how Bunn DJs can be both prepared and flexible.

All we need to get started from you is a deposit. That deposit holds your date and is taken out of the final balance. Then the remaining balance is due two weeks before the event date. We try to make all of the payments as simple as possible. So you’re free to use debit, credit, Venmo or PayPal to make all of your payments. Click here to contact us for more information on pricing.

We do not include gratuity in the final contract price. 10 – 20% is generally recommended if your DJ did a great job, but it is entirely up to you.

A good time frame is at least six months before the event. However, we have DJs available for last minute events as well. Click here to check date availability.

This is not required in our contract and is completely up to you. Typically, the catering director or event coordinator will set aside a meal or boxed dinner for the DJ if requested by the client.

You can select songs that you would like to hear at your event (as well as songs you don’t want to hear) through our online planning system. You will receive login information for that system in an email with your contract. The number of songs you request is totally up to you! We recommend giving your DJ at least 10-15 songs of different genres and artists that you would like to hear. A few songs/artists that you don’t want to hear is always helpful as well. If you end up requesting a lot of songs, just keep in mind the time constraints of your event. During your initial consultation, your DJ will ask about your music preferences.

We have a company Mixcloud page where some of our DJs post original mixes. We do not post any of our wedding or event mixes as each event we do is unique to that client.
