Well to be honest every wedding and event is so different that a simple checklist for prices isn’t exactly fair. Each event is taken into consideration to have a fair price.
When should we book our DJ, Photo booth and other services?
Most brides begin to think about booking their entertainment about 1 year in advance for the services they care most about. If the vendor is booked they obviously can’t be at two places at once. As much as I love Superman I’m not that fast.
When should I book Lighting and Uplighting?
Honest it’s no rush but the sooner the better… each lighting package is specific to your event.
Does your DJ package range with times?
Yes!! Each contract the dj will have a start and end time but again that can be worked out. For additional time added on the day of the event that is possible but the dj does need to be paid prior.
Can I request my own music?
For Sure!! It’s your day so we want to ensure you get exactly what you want. The forms given to you during the planning process gives you opportunity to make requests and even supply a do not playlist including genres of music not play.
Do you travel outside of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland Area?
Yes! For sure I have traveled as far as California and Florida but travel will be added per event.
So how do we book?
Once the inquiry is sent in and I’m available and you like what you hear a contract will be sent out. Once the contract and deposit is returned an email confirmation and text confirmation will be sent locking in your date. Then you made Joe happy and I’ll probably do a happy dance.
Will you work with other vendors?
Yes of Course!! On average I perform at 30-40 weddings and several events a year. As the dj my job is to make sure your vision and day runs smoothly. I will communicate via email, or phone to each vendor to make sure the timeline and any other requests are understood.
Method of payment accepted?
DJ Joseph Costa Entertainment Company accepts all major credit cards, Personal Checks, Company Checks, Cash, and Money Orders.
Are you insured?
Yes! We are insured for $1,000,000 per event. Proof of insurance can be presented to your banquet facility if they would like it.
Why do I have to sign a contract?
A contract protects both sides and just makes sure that you’re getting exactly what you’re paying for.
Can we meet with you in person?
Yes that’s not a problem at all. I actually prefer that so then you know who I am and become more comfortable. Then on the day of the event it’s more fun.
How do we finalize the details?
Forms will be sent to you prior and we will organize a face to face meeting, Skype or FaceTime. Then we will go over the timeline, requests, do not requests and any announcements.
Do you charge extra for MC services during my event?
No no no. Mcing comes in any package actually some people say I have a voice like Fergie and Jesus.
Where will you play?
As long as it’s safe I will play.
What kind of equipment do you use?
All equipment used is state of the art in mobile djing sound. Brands used are as follows: Apple, QSC, Numark, Pioneer, Line 6, Chauvet, and American DJ.
What do you wear to events?
I always dress professional so its suit, vest, tie, and dress shoes.
Do you offer a Military Discount?
Yes of Course! I will just need to see an active military id from the bride or groom and 10% discount will be issued!
