Yes, in fact, we use a secure online payment system, so you can enter your card details when paying the electronic invoice. We use the modern Square platform for billing, so you know your information is safe and protected!

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.

We offer DJ services for wedding ceremonies and receptions, corporate events, private parties, and school functions. We offer lighting options (uplighting and dance floor lighting) as well! See the most commonly requested services here. We also are experts in live event sound services!

The reality is you need to know your vendor’s type of equipment before signing a contract. In many ways, a DJ is only as good as their gear. They may be top of their game at mixing music. But if their DJ equipment is beat up and their speakers crackle, that’s all your guests will remember. At The Good DJ, as noted on our home page, we use cutting-edge equipment. No intrusive wires, only crystal-clear speakers. The Good DJ set-ups look as good as they sound!

While it is certainly rare, accidents or illnesses 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 on the way to your event, we have a plan. When you book The Good DJ, you’re getting a Good DJ. It’s as simple as that.

So we always keep a professional DJ on retainer.

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 The Good DJ, you know we’ll be there.

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. Our music selector (see it here) will automatically calculate the number of minutes your selected songs will use! And not to worry, during your initial consultation, your DJ will ask about your music preferences. We have over 9000 songs available!

A good time-frame is to try for at least six months before the event. However, we have DJs available for last minute events as well. In fact, The Good DJ's founder, Lance LeVor, really launched this service more than 15 years ago when a couple lost their DJ and needed one at the very last minute! Read about it here.

We don’t think your wedding should be where a DJ trains! That’s why every DJ is required to have a minimum of 5 years of experience as a professional DJ with great emcee skills. Professional means 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. And as important, you will connect directly with our DJ, no switching to different DJ when event day rolls around! Most of our DJs have 10 years or more working in the entertainment industry. When you book with The Good DJ, you know you’re getting quality and experience.

All we need to get started from you is a deposit of $100. That deposit holds your date and is taken out of the final balance. Then the remaining balance is due 30 days before the event date.

Yes, we 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 The Good 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.
