Frequently Asked Questions
This is a list of the most popular questions that we receive.
Hopefully these will answer any questions you may have.
Q: When should I book my date?
A: One good word of advice is to book early! This gives you the comfort in knowing your date is secured. Since we currently only operate one system, when a date is booked, its booked. Someone could be booking the date that you want right now. We already have some bookings several years in advance, so the sooner the better.
Q: Do you need the banquet hall to provide a table, chairs or anything special?
A: No, we bring everything we need. The only thing that we need from the event location is electricity. Please let the venue know we do not need a table.
Q: Do you offer a separate ceremony sound system if the ceremony is in a different area than the reception?
A: Yes! You may add-on our ceremony sound system to any package . This includes a 2-speaker sound system and up to 4 wireless microphones (lapel/clip on and handheld). The ceremony sound system is $125 in addition to the hourly package price.
Q: Do you offer a photo booth, monograms, uplighting, etc?
A: Sorry, we do not. We choose not to be a jack of all trades, but to focus all our efforts on a single expertise. There is one thing we're dedicated to and and we do it best. We provide fun, professional, high energy entertainment that makes any event come to life!
Q: Do you offer karaoke service?
A: Sorry, we do not. We are purely a DJ and MC entertainment service.
Q: How long does it take to set up and tear down?
A: For the Essential and Basic DJ packages, it takes about an hour and 1/2 for set up and 1 hour for tear down. For the Deluxe DJ package, it takes us about 3 hours for set up and 2 hours for tear down. For the Ultimate DJ package, it takes us about 3 1/2 hours for set up and 2 1/2 hours for tear down. Adding on an option such as a projector or ceremony sound system will add 1/2 hour time to set up. If your event venue requires the use of stairs or an elevator we do allow ourselves even more time than what is mentioned above.
Q: Do I have to pay for set up or tear down of equipment?
A: No. You only pay for the time we're actually performing.
Q: Do you have a list of references you could send me?
A: Yes, most definitely. Our past clients can tell you first hand what they thought of our service. If you would a list of references, simply send us an email.
Q: Could I come to one of your performances?
A: Sure. We don't want to isolate you from what we do best! We just make sure it is okay with the client beforehand. If you would like to come to one of our performances, simply send us an email or give us a call.
Q: Why do you have two people working at every event?
A: Some companies offer just a single person to do everything. While this does cut costs, it also dramatically reduces the quality of the entertainment service. There is no comparison to having one versus two people working an event. We only offer the best performance for each and every event. With two people, events flow perfectly smooth with more interaction and a much higher level of energy, enthusiasm and excitement.
Q: Who will be my DJ and MC / Crowd Motivator?
A: Your DJ will be DJ Eric. The MC / Crowd Motivator will be one of the Stealth DJ's team members. It depends on their schedules. However, if you would like to reserve the highly recommended and most popular MC, MC Toros requires a $1,200 reservation fee to guarantee him at your event.
Q: Do you have a song list that you could send me?
A: We do not print and mail a song list because it would be far too costly. But if you would like, we can email you our song list in PDF format. Just call or send an email.
Q: After the $50 deposit is sent, when is the remaining balance due?
A: Your remaining balance is due on your event date unless other arrangements are made. We would prefer credit card payments be received by one day before the event.
Q: Can we set up an appointment to meet in person?
A: It is really not necessary. Typically everything is handled by phone, email and mail. This is to save everyone time and money. This is the way we have done business for 22 years with no problems. Since you complete a very informative planner worksheet and everything is then discussed in great detail, everything goes without a hitch. There were a few times I met with clients and both times when they were leaving, mentioned "You were right, Eric! We could have done all this with a simple phone call.
Q: Any there any penalties for having to cancel my event after I paid a deposit?
A: The deposit is non-refundable, so this is the only thing you forfeit. However, you may use the $50 deposit toward our services on another day that we are available.
Q: What is the difference between the four DJ & MC packages?
A: The only difference is the number of dance floor lights that are included. The Essential package does not include any lighting effects. The Basic package features 4 special effect lights. The Deluxe package includes 20 special effect lights. The Ultimate package includes 22 special effect lights, plus a green laser light show.
Q: Does Stealth DJ's currently have a demo video that you mail out?
A: Sorry, but at this time we do not have a video we send out. But we do have video clips from some past events on our website you may view.
Q: May I choose songs for you to play at my event?
A: Of course! Remember, by hiring us, you are the boss. Our number one goal is complete customer satisfaction.
Q: If you do not have a song I request during an event, can you just download it?
A: Unfortunately, no. We are required to pay for any music we play. Music purchases are only available from our office. Please send a list of any special requests you or your guests have prior to your event so we can ensure we have them ready to play.
Q: Can you play songs from my phone or my guests' phone, iPod, media player, etc?
A: We prefer not to. Typically, the music on these devices is low quality and sounds bad on professional high fidelity audio speakers. Also, the songs may not be radio edited and we do not want to offend anyone. We will only allow this if it is something discussed prior to the event and we can preview the songs beforehand.
Q: Why are the prices less for a party as compared to a bar/bat mitzvah?
A: The difference between the party and bar/bat mitzvah package prices is this: A party is a very straightforward event with music and dancing. A bar/bat mitzvah is a very involved fast paced event. Along with the music and dancing, there is constant interaction with the kids. Whether it be hosting a game or teaching a special dance. There are also many aspects which require more work including candle lighting, video montage, Hora, grand entrance, speeches and other special events that require more time, planning and preparation.
Q: Are the prices listed negotiable, or are they written in stone?
A: Sometimes the price can be negotiated. It depends on your event time, date, and type of event. It doesn't hurt to ask.
