We’re almost ready to go for our honeymoon but we wanted to take a few minutes to thank you so much for our wedding day! Everything was perfect from your part and we wanted to let you know that we, and all of our guests, loved you!

JULIE & OLIVIER

We had the pleasure of booking you as our DJ at our wedding! Your choice of music was great and you had the dance floor packed until last call! I would 100% recommend you and your services for anyone who wants an amazing DJ at their wedding.

SARAH F.

We couldn’t have asked for a better night. It was great to see people on the dance floor until the end, and we’ve had numerous people say how much fun they had!”

KATIE & JAMIE

You have 2 extremely satisfied customers in us. Your music selections were spot on throughout the whole day and you kept the dance floor packed all night! Definitely the best DJing I've witnessed at any event ever. Everyone we've talked to is saying the same thing.

SASKIA & SCOTT

Both Daniel and Melissa treated us like dear friends, and really went all out to ensure that our wedding reception was amazing. I highly recommend this team! Thank you both for a perfect night

STACEY Q.

Thank you Mark for your amazing service. You did a wonderful job and we couldn’t have been happier with how the night went.

MICHAEL & NATHALIE

I have to commend you. The dance floor was packed and booming all night. Because of you, our biggest fear was a non-issue. Thanks so much again!!

LINDSAY & STEFAN

One of my friends recently got engaged and asked who our DJ was. She and her fiancé had been to 5 weddings this year and she said our DJ really stood out as the best!

KAREN L.

|Thank you, Mark! We are so happy that you helped us celebrate our special day (and night!). You were absolutely amazing, and we couldn't be happier with the services you provided. It was an absolute pleasure working with you :) "

Frequently Asked Questions

 

WHAT MUST I REMEMBER ON MY WEDDING DAY?

First and foremost, remember to have fun. Often the hosts of special events (e.g. brides and grooms, hosts of private parties, company managers, etc.) forget to let loose, dance, and have a good time. How much fun you’re having will directly influence the success of your event. If you’re having fun, your guests will have fun and if you dance, your guests will dance.

Second, we have prepared a checklist of things that you’ll need to remember to bring on the date of your special event. For example, please remember to:

Bring 2 (yes, 2 – in case one doesn’t work!) copies of the special request music that you’d like played at your event that the DJ doesn’t already have. For example, some brides and grooms have special songs they’d like played for their first dance, or for their mother-son/father-daughter dances. We have a large selection of music but we may not have the exact song (or version of song) you desire. In these cases, be sure to bring copies with you – otherwise, the DJ can work with you to select alternative songs from our vast library.
Provide the DJ with any additional instructions. Sometimes plans change at the last minute. This is OK. Our DJs are professionals and are used to adapting to different circumstances. To ensure your event runs smoothly and as you envisioned, be sure to notify your DJ of any changes prior to “show time”.
Appoint a person to act as the liaison among the DJ, you, and the venue to ensure your event runs smoothly. Notify the DJ as to who this liaison is so that s/he knows who to work with to ensure your event is a hit.

WILL I HAVE TO PROVIDE A MEAL FOR THE DJ?

Your DJ, along with your other vendors such as your photographer and wedding/event planner (if you have them) who work overtime and/or during mealtime hours to make your event a success, should be provided with a meal. After all, you’d hate for your DJ or another service provider to have to leave or order in food just as the event gets rolling!

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM OUR DJ?

You should expect your DJ to:

Be dressed appropriately in a dark suit, white shirt and tie (unless otherwise specified by you);
Expect that some may wear funky socks;
Be on-time and ready to play;
Have handy all of the instructions for your event that you previously provided to Pulse Entertainment;
Treat you and your guests with respect and professionalism;
Be dedicated to doing what it takes to make your event a success (even if it means saying “no” to playing certain requests at certain times that could disrupt the flow);
Be honest and forthright with you and/your appointed liaison about what will and won’t work for your special event;

WHAT ARE MY OBLIGATIONS TO ENSURE A SUCCESSFUL PARTY?

There are lots of things that you as the host or event organizer can – and should – do to ensure the success of your event. First, have a good time.

If you’re relaxed, having a good time, and going with the flow, your guests will too. This is probably the most important thing you can do as it sets the mood/tone of the event.

Second, the more organized you are and the more explicit you are with your instructions, the better. Well planned events are always better received by your guests than disorganized ones.

Third, communicate with your DJ and your other service providers. Think of your DJ as part of your team working to make your night a success. Fourth, trust and respect your DJ and her/his experience. Your DJ has helped to make many events a success. S/he knows what music works best to get the crowd dancing and keep the crowd dancing, and what music will cool things down. Listen to your DJ and the advice they have to offer.

Finally, be sure that you and your spouse are on the same page when it comes to what you expect from your event. This is especially important if you have different tastes, backgrounds and cultures. Your guests are looking for a good party so make sure that you are a team and have agreed on how to throw a memorable event.

WILL MY DJ TAKE REQUESTS?

YES! Your DJ will take requests if you want her/him to do so (if you do not want your DJ to take requests, that’s fine too). However, you should empower your DJ to do her/his job – after all, s/he is a professional and knows what music works at what time and what music will disrupt the flow of the event.

ISN'T AN IPOD BETTER THAN A DJ?

According to Martha Stewart, 80% of a wedding’s success is based on the type of music entertainment selected for the reception. This includes the abilities, personality, and interaction of a DJ or band members. While IPods are fun devices that are great for home and small office entertainment use, they are not the same as professional DJs. A professional Disc Jockey is intimately familiar with the science of playing the right music based on audience reaction, participation, and numerous external circumstances. While playing, a DJ scans the room to watch the audience. Known as “reading the crowd”, an IPod is pre-programmed and cannot adjust a song set based on audience reaction or any other situations.

CAN WE MEET OUR DJ BEFORE THE WEDDING?

Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it!

Pulse Entertainment will notify you 30-60 days prior to your event with information on your assigned DJ. At that time you may arrange to meet with them. There may be a small fee to meet your DJ for their time, at a rate of $75 +HST per hour that will be added to your final invoice.

THANKS FOR THE PLANNING TOOL...DO WE HAVE TO USE IT?

Yes please. Pulse Entertainment strives for accuracy in its planning and in ensuring that all clients receive that they request, we ask that all information be inputted by you into that one central location. This way, prior to your event, we access one document with all the information we need. Unfortunately, information and requests sent to us by email, fax, text message, word of mouth, or through any other means cannot be guaranteed to be accurate at the time of your event.

CAN WE COME TO ANOTHER WEDDING TO AUDITION A DJ FOR OUR WEDDING?

No, sorry. At Pulse Entertainment, we commit ourselves 100% to the client who has paid us to perform that night. For us it's about our clients and the tasks at hand while performing amazingly well to ensure that service excellence and client satisfaction goals are met. As such, we don't want to be distracted.

CAN WE SELECT A DJ BASED ON RACE OR ETHNICITY?

No. Pulse Entertainment is an equal opportunity company and does not select DJs based on gender, ethnicity, race, accent, or religion, if not deemed necessary.

Pulse Entertainment will attempt to assign a DJ from a specific country if there is an event where guests are of the same country and culture. However, we will not ban a DJ from performing at an event because his/her race, gender, ethnicity, accent, or religion is different.

Pulse Entertainment is sensitive to this matter and reserves the right to refuse a client whose requests for a DJ, or any other team member of Pulse Entertainment, is based on gender, ethnicity, race, accent, or religion or sexual orientation.

DO YOU ACCEPT SAME-SEX CLIENTS?

Yes, of course!

WHAT IF WE DON'T LIKE THE MUSIC OUR DJ IS PLAYING?

If you’re not happy with your DJ’s performance, it is important that you speak with the DJ immediately. Please do not wait until the wedding is over!

Our DJs are very receptive professionals, always ready to respond to your feedback. It is important to be professional with your DJ recognizing that they are doing their best to suit the needs of you and your guests.

WHY SO MUCH MONEY FOR JUST A FEW HOURS OF WORK?

The performance time at an event is what we see as the grand finale of an event. We spend many hours, anywhere from 21-40, for each event that we DJ. This time includes meeting with clients, reviewing and analyzing online requests, meeting with the venue, phone calls, event planning, DJ briefing, and travel to/from events. Each event also incurs additional expenses including travel, parking at events, purchasing music, licensing, insurance, and equipment upkeep.
