Describe your DJ style

We are interactive, fun, and like to keep the ball rolling. We engage your guests and spend a lot of time on the dance floor.

Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?

No limit! We love requests!

What is your usual attire?

We get dressed up!  It’s your wedding or special event.  No polo shirts here.  Think classy-chic.

Do you take requests?

Of course!  We love requests.

Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?

Yes, we prefer to meet up beforehand. Getting to know you allows us to tailor the music and festivities to your style and taste!

Can the client submit a do-not-play list?

Yes, we will give you a planner before your event which has a spot for both “must-play” and “do-not-play” music lists.

Do you bring your own equipment?

Everything is provided, even the table.

What special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your services?

We have a real disco ball, two large LED wash panels, and two LED mushroom lights. These are all synced to the music and we are able to control every aspect of the color and effect. We can provide additional uplighting as needed.  Additionally, we have wireless microphones, high-end Electrovoice powered speakers, and digital turntables.  We bring backups of all essential equipment.

How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?

We need thirty minutes to an hour to set up, and we provide our own table and table cloth.

Do you have any extra space requirements?

We like to have at least an 8′ x 15′ area.

Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?

Yes, absolutely!  We interact with your guests, take requests, and become part of the party.

How do you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?

The key to preventing an open dance floor is really in the mix–playing songs in a series that gives folks a chance to catch their breath, get new folks out of their chairs, and keep people coming back for those songs you just can’t help but dance to.  Also, we keep some extra fun songs in reserve for moments like these.

Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?

Absolutely not. Grit City DJs is your personal entertainment and partymaker for that day. Our entire attention is on you.
