Describe your DJ style.

Smooth, elegant, tasteful, organized, friendly, easy going and determined to make your party awesome in all ways.

What is your usual attire?

We like to think we all have our own “formal” style. We ALWAYS dress to impress. What some of us wear to an upscale contemporary “black tie” chic banquet facility might be different than what we wear to a more laid back winery or barn “rustic” style wedding. Part of our job is making sure we look good and represent our services well!

How many other DJs do you work with?

Currently, we have 14 entertainers. They are a mixture of DJs, MCs, and lighting and video technicians. We are equipped to perform at four events in any one given time slot.

Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?

We have supplied entertainment for many ethnically diverse couples. We work hand-in-hand with the bride and groom to ensure that their culture is represented adequately on their important day.

Do you bring your own equipment?

Yes, and in addition, there is also backup equipment on-site in the event of any technical difficulties.

How much time do you usually need to setup?

Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?

This is normally based on the amount of equipment that is being supplied. The average amount of time is 60-90 minutes before the start of the reception. We always have music playing 30 minutes before the start time to ensure that guests do not walk into a room that sounds empty. We are self-contained and do not need an additional table.

Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?

We do Emcee the reception. It is important that the Emcee speaks clearly when any formalities are about to take place. Events run much smoother when there is the presence of an Emcee. We make sure to speak with the bride and groom in detail before the reception to see how involved they’d like this person to be throughout the course of the evening.

What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?

Meals are never required but always appreciated.

What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?

We always have at least one staff member on call in case of any emergencies. Thankfully, we have never had to exercise that option.

Is there a required deposit to secure your services?

Yes. There may be a 25%-50% deposit due upon
the signing of the contract.

Are "tips" expected or required? How much is appropriate?

Tips are never expected, but of course always appreciated for a job well done. Tips usually range from $50-$100 per man.

Do you have liability insurance?

We sure do.

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

We never limit guests from requesting music. This doesn’t mean we play every request. If the request is appropriate and timely, it is our pleasure to honor it. The bride and groom or event hosts normally dictate if requests are allowed and if so what kind of music.

If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?

Not at all, we will gather any required music that the bride and groom request. If the songs are extremely rare and difficult to locate, we will inform a couple of that weeks in advance. Typically, this only happens with foreign selections.

Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?

We have all our couples communicate with the MC who is the lead on the event before ever signing a contract. We feel it’s important to connect with the bride and groom on a personal level rather than just a business level.

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

Yes. In the form we provide, there is a section involving music and there is a DO and DO NOT playlist area to specify these songs.

What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?

We are a full-service entertainment company. As an add-on, we offer a full line of event lighting including dance floor lighting as well as LED uplighting. In addition to DJs and MCs, we provide video, live music, band/DJ combinations and a number of other options.

Do you have any extra space requirements?

Not typically, but this is also determined by the services
the couple have booked.

Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?

We do not have any signs or banners. We feel that the wedding should be about the bride and groom and not about us spreading our name. If a guest is pleased with our services, they will ask for a card.

How would you motivate the crowd if no one was dancing?

To be honest, this is a tricky question. Being motivational depends on the type of party and the clients’ request. We never like to be cheesy so there will not be any “over the top” antics. However, each MC has his own style and tricks that allow them to find ways to motivate a dull crowd and get everyone to the dance floor. When all else fails, we might try and slow things down and invite up all the couples to ease into another dance set.

Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your meal?

Yes, we would have a playlist arranged in advance during this time.

Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?

Our only travel charge might be for events that take place more than 90 minutes of driving time from our offices in either NJ, NY, or LA. The price always varies based on the package being booked. If you are booking several services- we can sometimes absorb the travel costs as part of an incentivized package discount. However, this might not be possible with certain Live Musician/Performers that need to rent vehicles to travel from NYC and spend significant time on the road to get to your event. We will always be transparent and explain to you what kinds of travel costs MIGHT be necessary.

What ceremony music arrangements can you provide?

Brass Quartet, Brass Quintet, Brass Trio, Instrumental Duo, Instrumental Solo, Instrumental Trio, Orchestra, Soloist / Vocalist, String Quartet, String Quintet, String Trio – see our ceremony music page for more information.

What is your usual attire?

Black suit or dresses.

How much space do you usually require?

This depends on the amount of people hired.

What instruments does your group play?

Cello, Drums, Flute, Guitar, Harp, Organ, Piano,
Trumpet, Viola, and Violin

Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?

We can provide some sample music.

Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?

Only for events that are more than two hours
from our office in West Orange, NJ.

He was an awesome DJ and anything we

Jay was amazing!

We are both in the industry so we had very high standards on our DJ and other vendors. Jay knocked it out of the park! We gave him the a vision of what we wanted in a DJ and he ran with it. Not only did he have the party going but also made sure to include all different types of genres of music to get others on the dance floor. He was flexible and we did not have to worry at all because he took care of everything. We also had Owls and Lions play at our ceremony/cocktail hour and our friends and family are still talking about it. We would highly recommend him over and over again!

Jay Della Valle was our DJ/MC for the night
and we could not have been happier.

 We saw Jay at another wedding we went to actually which prompted us to go with him. Not only is he a great MC, he plays the kind of music you want, gets everything going, and he even sings some songs that make you do a double-take because he is so good. I would highly recommend Jay for any kind of event.

From the very first meeting with Jay he was nothing
but friendly, helpful, professional but had a great sense of humor.

I was a DJ for 7 years and after our experience with Spinners, I would like to reimburse any of my previous customers, because they were far superior to any entertainment services that I have seen. To call them DJ's is an understatement because it doesn't mention how seamless they make the celebration through their lighting, MC's, ceremony music (live singing, acoustic guitar, violin).
