Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I choose Americas Best?
Do you just play music?
No, a good DJ does a lot more. Depending on the type of event the DJ will act as Master of Ceremonies by handling all of the introductions and announcements. They also act as a Wedding Planner by coordinating the activities of the photographer, videographer, and banquet hall. Then, they take requests from the guests, lead line dances, and ensure everyone is having a good time all while playing music to keep the dance floor packed!
How long will the DJ play?
The DJ will play for the full contracted time of the package without breaks. This usually includes an hour or two of background music during cocktail hour and dinner. Additional time can be booked at the event at the discretion of the banquet hall and if it does not create scheduling conflicts.
What type of equipment do you use?
All of our equipment is top of the line professional DJ equipment mounted in heavy-duty flight cases for protection and a professional appearance. The specific equipment at your event will vary depending on the venue.
Can we pick what music gets played?
Along with a list of the wedding party dances you can submit a list of must play songs and special requests. These songs are generally songs that are meaningful to you and your guests or you know will be dance floor hits. You can be as involved as you like in the selection of music for your reception or leave it all up to our experienced disc jockeys; it's your choice.
How loud will it be?
During cocktails and dinner it will be at a background level that will allow it to be heard throughout the entire room yet will still allow for normal conversation. Our speakers are normally on stands, which allow for a clearer projection throughout the room. When the dancing begins the speakers will be focused on the dance floor so that the volume level will be considerably louder on the dance floor than the rest of the room. If you would like it a little louder or quieter than average please let us know and we would be more than happy to accommodate.
What if the DJ gets sick?
If for some reason a DJ is unable to make an event, we have multiple back up DJs available.
What happens if something breaks?
We only use top of the line equipment that is regularly inspected and maintained. Equipment failures are extremely rare; however, in case something does malfunction, our systems carry redundant equipment so that if one item is not functioning properly it can be replaced on the spot.
How do we reserve your service?
If booking us for an Ala Carte Entertainment property just let the catering salesperson at the banquet facility or the Americas Best Entertainment Coordinator know that you would like America's Best.
Will you be available to answer questions?
Of course, our America's Best Entertainment Coordinator will be available to you throughout the planning process to help answer any questions you might have.
If you have any additional questions please contact us.
