More About DJ Perfect and Perfect Entertainment
What type of events do you book?
DJ Perfect primarily specializes in An Upscalse DJ Experience with real DJ skills, charismatic microphone presence, and immaculate presentation. We have done it all type of events from small to large. Our ideal clients want, and are able to distinguish, talent and quality. We are not the most expensive, but certainly are not who you come to for the cheap wedding DJ with low-level equipment, presentation, and talent.
Are you insured?
Yes. Some venues require vendors to list them as Additional Insured on a liability insurance policy for the event. We will provide the insurance certificate to the venue when requested.
Who will be our DJ?
DJ Perfect is the DJ/MC assigned to all bookings. In the event that I am booked, you may choose one of my recommended team members. In addition to exceptional live mixes, I will make any necessary introductions and timeline announcements.
What do you provide for the wedding ceremony?
For your wedding ceremony, we will play your pre-selected songs with smooth transitions. As a standard, a lapel microphone and wireless handheld microphone (on a stand) is provided. If you have vocalists or musicians performing, we can accommodate their equipment needs as well.
We pay attention to details. That is why we use white speakers, cables, and microphone stands to blend into your wedding decor.
How do you handle requests?
Clients are able to set the general tone for the event in our client portal. There, clients can specify the genres and time periods of the music they would like to hear, as well as a few of their favorite artists/songs.
For weddings, most couples have specific songs they want played during the ceremony or for the special dances at the reception. Our client portal provides a way to organize everything in one place for the DJ and clients’ reference.
Of course, like any artist, I don’t do well with micro-management. As an experienced professional who can read a crowd, I must be allowed creative license to determine what to play and when, using the requests of the clients as a guide. DJs are not jukeboxes or Spotify playlists. There’s a reason why a professional DJ is hired for an event.
Clients are asked to tell us background info on the musical taste of their guests, so that they will hear the music that is sure to get them going. No requests are taken during the event. Requests should be made in advance. This is the best way to ensure that the DJ is not interrupted while trying to mix, cue up the next song, or make announcements.
What is your DJ style?
DJ Perfect, along with any DJs on the Perfect Entertainment team, are skilled mix DJs. I got my start in the late 90s with the pure foundation of two turntables and a mixer. Learning the traditional way prepared me for the technological advances that would come, such as CDJ decks and DJ controllers that took away the need to haul crates of records to each event.
As an open format DJ, I cater to the needs of the clients. However, my favorite genres to mix are Hip-Hop, R&B, Top 40, House, Reggae, Soca, Salsa, and Merengue.
I am not the YMCA, Chicken Dance, Cha Cha Slide, or Electric Slide type of DJ. Also, I am not a game show host and do not facilitate activities like the Shoe Game or similar time fillers.
My live mixing is characterized by flawless beat matching, blends, and remixes of the hottest classic and new bangers.
What happens in case of emergency?
Our contract protects you and us in case of emergency. In an unlikely scenario where an emergency prevents DJ Perfect from arriving to your wedding earlier than the usual 2-3 hours ahead of time, another of our DJ team members will be on the way with a complete audio setup, at no additional cost to you. We are also part of a large network of professional DJs that cover in emergency situations.
Although the above scenario has not been necessary in all these years, it's better to have it and not need it. It is another way to deliver the best service to our clients.
What if there is technical difficulty with equipment?
Prevention is the cure. Perfect Entertainment believes in buying the best the first time. That means that rather than rushing out and buying the newest or cheapest equipment, we will wait and invest in the most proven equipment, even if it is considerably more expensive.
With that said, even the most high-end equipment can malfunction every now and then. That is why, we bring extras of everything - extra DJ turntables, speakers, microphones, cords and cables, lights, and more. If something goes down, it will be swapped out in no time.
Do you have any sound or power requirements?
All audio equipment will be provided by Perfect Entertainment, with the exception of concerts or nightclubs, where a professional sound engineer is on duty. At all other party venues, churches, and other facilities, we do not use the venue’s sound system.
Generally, we do not require any special power outside of a standard electrical outlet that is designated for the DJ’s use only. Our sound and lighting equipment does not draw an excessive amount of power. If the venue lacks enough outlets to leave one free for only the DJ to use, we will need to be notified well in advance in order to prepare.
Where can we see you in person?
The majority of my events are weddings and I do not invite potential clients. However, some events are open to the public. Follow @iamdjperfect on Instagram or Facebook to get info on events that are open to the public. In the meantime, you can always check out mixes at djperfect.com/music.
How much is required to book a date?
Generally, a 50% non-refundable retainer is required to book. However, some bookings with several services require a 25% deposit. Bookings occurring 30 days or sooner from the event date require payment in full.
When is the balance due?
The final balance must be paid no later than 30 days prior to the event date.
Do you provide a contract?
Absolutely. We provide a convenient electronic signature platform for contracts. If you are old school, you may print it and mail it.
How many hours of service are included?
Each quote given includes the number of hours requested on the contact form. If more time is needed, the quote will increase. Once you receive a quote, the time frame you requested has already been used to determine the price. Please note that time frame is only one factor that determines your quote.
What forms of payment are accepted?
We make it convenient to make a secure payment directly on our electronic quote. All major credit cards are accepted. You may also pay via PayPal or Square. Check payments made payable to Perfect Entertainment, 3445 Almand Dr C7, Atlanta GA 30337.
Once booking has occurred, balance payments can be made by logging into your online client portal.
How much do you charge?
While most DJs are annoyed by this question. Let's just face it head on right out the gate. The importance of the DJ to the success of any event, especially a wedding, is huge. Over the years, I have offered various pricing options, packages, etc. After looking at what most clients have booked, a simple and streamlined pricing approach has been established.
Pricing for each wedding is different, so contact us to provide your wedding details, and you will receive a quote. Factors affecting price include type of services requested, travel distance from Atlanta, time of day/year, length of time, equipment requirements, venue locations and restrictions, and parking.
