Are you insured?
Yes we are. Most quality reception venues require entertainment companies to be fully insured. This gives you peace of mind knowing that you and your guests are being taken care of by a professional company that cares enough to be prepared in every detail.
Are you a part time or full time business?
DJ Louie Productions is a Full-time business. This is not a hobby for us, it is our livelihood. Let our full-time staff help make your planning worry-free. We are available to meet or speak with you during the day, or in the evening.
How much do you charge?
A professional DJ company charges a professional fee for services rendered. Our basic entertainment package pricing structure puts us in the range of $200 - $400 per hour. It varies depending on the type and date of the event. When comparing fees with other entertainment companies, keep in mind that in most cases you get what you pay for, and that a “good deal” may be lacking in experience, quality and reputation, three areas we refuse to skimp out on. "GREAT ENTERTAINMENT ISN'T EXPENSIVE... IT'S PRICELESS"
We are considering using your services. Can we see your DJs perform somewhere?
We highly respect the private events of our clients and want to give them all the attention they deserve. Therefore, we do not invite prospective clients to see us at someone else’s private event. We will not turn their event into a showcase. However, we do have videos that we use in our presentations. We also provide hundreds of references upon request. The most important reference we can give is of course a banquet director. They see entertainment companies come and go every weekend so their recommendations can definitively be trusted. Besides, there has to be a reason why many banquet venues are recommending us.
Can we meet you in person?
Not only you can, but we encourage it. As today’s technology give us the ability to communicate with our clients via text, e-mail, phone and video chat; we would love to meet with you in person to go over your needs, visions and dreams and tell you exactly how we will fulfill them. To us, it is also like a personality meeting. Once we do our consultation in person, you will know how comfortable you feel about having us to be part of your special event. After booking us, you will have full access directly to your personal DJ via phone, email and face to face meetings throughout your entire planning process.
How will you dress for my event?
Dress code is something that will vary according to the event and can be discussed in advance. Normally our entertainers are in tuxedos for weddings, sweet 16’s, bar/bat mitzvahs and corporate parties. Otherwise they wear whatever the occasion warrants, but always neat and in good taste. As the client you may have the final word on this issue.
Are you interactive?
The level of interaction is up to you. We believe in tasteful interaction and we are not constantly on the microphone trying to be the center of attention at our events (like talking on the microphone every 5 minutes encouraging guests to dance…we let the music do that). Our DJs will not embarrass you, your friends or relatives as we do not believe in the “cheesy” techniques. We do not pull guests out of their comfort zones and most of all; we do not steal your spotlight..
What type of equipment do you use?
We use only premium brand professional audio equipment. This will guarantee the best quality sound possible. We do not cut corners buying inferior brands or using sound systems designed for home use. Our top brands include Rane, Denon, Yorkville, JBL, Shure, Pioneer and the professional line of Bose.
Do you bring back up equipment to all events?
Yes we do. Even though we use premium brand professional audio equipment, one never knows if it will ever fail. Therefore a backup system is available on site just in case.
What happens if you get sick the day of the event?
We belong to an emergency respond network with other quality, professional DJs in the area. You are assured to get a back up Entertainer if something should happen.
How early will you arrive at the venue?
As a general rule, the entertainers will arrive at least one hour before the start of your event. Although our systems can be set up in less than 20 minutes, we like to allow plenty of time to test all components and make adjustments for optimal sound performance at your venue. We also want to be properly dressed and looking fresh before the event starts.
How loud will the music be at my event?
Here at DJ Louie Productions we do pay a lot of attention to detail, and volume control is one thing we are very concerned with. Proper volume control is very important to us and your guests as well. We want to make sure that people on the dance floor are having a really good time, but we also want to make sure that guests at their tables are able to have a nice conversation without having to scream at each other. DJ Louie only carries the professional line of Bose speakers.
What music will be played at my event?
You are the boss, it is your party, and you are customizing it based on your taste and needs. You will communicate with your DJ two weeks prior to your affair. We will discuss your likes and dislikes. You can give us a list of songs you would like to hear the day of the party. We will use this list and our professional experience and judgment to put your party into a unique class of its own.
What type of music do you have?
Our library of over Two Hundred Thousand titles spans the range from the 40’s up to today's hottest hits and includes: Motown, Swing, R&B, Techno, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Old School, Disco, Reggae, Calypso, Country, Freestyle, Jazz, Folk, Alternative, Heavy Metal, Rock, Beach Music, Blues, Christian, House, Trance, Funk, Soca, Rumba, Cha-Cha , Tango, Waltz…and many more. We even carry International music and a huge Latin library with Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Cumbia, Reggaeton and much more.
Do you bring props, party favors and lights to all of your events?
No we don't. The lighting, props, and party favors such as leis, hats and glow items are optional and there is an extra cost involved. Although these items are not necessary to make your party, many people find them useful and fun to enhance the mood of your event.
How far in advance do we need to book?
Most of our clients book DJ Louie Productions approximately 12-18 months in advance. However, many times we can accommodate reservations made from a few weeks to several months ahead. Since there’s no way of predicting which dates will become totally booked, the only way to know is to call us and speak to a representative.
What type of services do you provide?
We are a full service entertainment company. That means that we can provide you with a variety of entertainment options. Our services include event consulting and planning, Disc Jockeys, Masters of Ceremony, Lighting, Fog Machines, Bubbles, Dancers, Up-lighting, Karaoke and more.
Do you travel outside the metro-Atlanta area?
Yes we do. We travel continental US, and even internationally upon request.
Do you offer photography services?
DJ Louie Productions has a sister company: Angie Londono Photography. Should you want to use our entertainment and photography services, we could create a package for you and help you save hundreds of dollars.
