YOU ASKED, WE ANSWERED
WEDDING DJ FAQ’S
How do I choose which songs I want played at my wedding?
For every wedding we set up an online ‘music portal’ that gives you exclusive access to entertainment details for your wedding. Our DJs work the crowd and their magic to play the right songs, at the right time. We ask for up to 10 must-haves as well as any do not plays (just as important!), and from there our DJ will tailor the music on the night to suit your demographic, requests, and overall vibe of the night (win!)
How much room does the wedding DJ or DJ Band require?
If you opt for a DJ only, we say an approx. space of 2mx2m including speakers is ideal. With the additional singer or saxophonist, as they are roaming musicians and mainly get in amongst the crowd, we don’t need a sectioned off space for them!
What do I need to supply for the DJ or DJ Band?
It’s your big day so we look after absolutely everything you need. We just need access to power close by and a supplier meal for our DJ! We bring all equipment, the sound system and basic lighting for your reception.
Can I meet the DJ or DJ Band before my wedding?
With the amount of weddings & meetings we conduct to ensure each of our clients’ events are as smooth as possible, your Event Manager will be your go-to person in the lead up. As an agency, we look after the performers on your behalf and ensure they everything ready to go. We find this is super important so no details are missed. Our performers are amazing at creating music on the night, however, when it comes to planning – that’s our jam!
How much will a wedding DJ or DJ Band cost?
We pride ourselves on exceptional entertainment at palatable prices. Each of our DJ-band formats have different pricing. 5 hours coverage for a DJ & Saxophone starts at $2,400 ex GST. We make sure you aren’t hit with additional extras so travel and time are also factored into the cost.
When I book a DJ or DJ Band, does it come with lighting for the reception dance floor?
We can include basic lighting at no extra cost, however if you’d like something a little more wow, like effects for the dance-floor, these are additional and we have packages for these. Just let us know what you’re envisaging and we can send you a quote!
How long does the DJ Band perform for?
The DJ will be booked for a minimum of 5 hours (yes, all night dancefloor beats) and our musicians/instrumentalists (band) are booked at a minimum of 2 hours to start after formalities.
What if I want a mixture of live acoustic music as well as a DJ or DJ Band?
Love your taste, let’s do it! We can absolutely create a perfect mix of acoustic and DJ or DJ band. For example, you can have an acoustic musician for your Ceremony & canapés, with a DJ for your full reception, and Sax/Vocalist or Percussionist to kick off the dance-floor.
Can the DJ also MC at our Wedding Reception?
Everyone loves a package deal and the answer is yes, select DJs can also MC for an additional cost. This depends on availability so please check with us first!
Do we get to choose the DJ Band members?
We recommend choosing the vocalist of your DJ band, and we will assign the other performers around the vocalist. The unique difference with a DJ band is generally the vocalist, so if you choose your style of singer, we’ll ensure the other performers have worked with this particular singer and all have amazing synergy when performing.
Can we request songs for throughout the night or for our first dance?
100%. You’ll be able to fill out our online music portal with all the requests and info you like, and we’ll use this as a music brief for the night. We can also take requests on the night! If booking a vocalist, please check with us first about learning songs.
Give preset lists the flick – experienced, energetic live wedding dj’s only
We are most definitely NOT going to let a ‘DJ’ walk in, press play on a playlist and fumble through introductions with the names of your guests because they were handed the list the night before (yikes!).
We like to say you’re in a safe pair of hands – we work with a close-knit, highly experienced team of DJ’s who have hundreds of weddings under their ‘performer belt’. You’ll also have an option to meet your DJ prior locking things in, because we know how important it is to be on the same page for something as important as your wedding entertainment.
THE HOKEY POKEY IS NOT WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT!
There shall be NO clicking of tunes on an iPhone like your mate’s 18th house party. This is your fabulous, spectacular wedding we’re talking about, so you know we’re sending you a music match made in heaven. We’ll chat with you and your partner in detail so we can create bespoke, customised playlists that reflect your tastes. Instead of the Hokey Pokey (yup, it haunts our nightmares) or Chicken Dance, you’ll hear perfectly planned well-timed soundtracks that appeal to you and your guests. You can bop and dance away to a mix of Motown, R&B hits and timeless classics and you’ll only hear Eagle Rock at the end of the night if you REALLY want to.
SMOOTH SAILING TO YOUR BIG DAY – OUR EASY & AMAZING WEDDING DJ ENTERTAINMENT
If you want to keep things simple and fun, whilst ensuring the entertainment for your Melbourne wedding is world-class, you can’t go wrong with a Hey Jack DJ. It’s going to feel bougie on a budget as you and your guests are treated to upbeat and remixed renditions of modern chart hits, balanced with an array of classic all-time faves. This electric combination of songs is sure to get everyone in the mood for some dancefloor action (or for the non-dancers, some very lively foot taps).
