After many years of experience, we have developed 4 fully customizable packages to meet just about anyone’s DJ entertainment needs. Plus we have a number of options to choose from to enhance your event. You’ll find the quotes for each package enclosed or just give us a call. Quotes may have DJ Special/Discounts that have a klmimited time duration. There are no hidden extra charges like mileage, stairs fee, etc., the rate quoted is the complete rate. Package pricing and discounts/specials (if any) are based on demand. Tip for getting our best rates: Reserve your event early to receive the highest possible discount and to insure that we are available. Our lowest rates are on Sunday – Friday year around and all week from mid October to mid April each year.
Office hours are Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 5 a.m. In addition to the office hours, we have an On Call Manager on duty whenever we are performing at events. You can reach the On Call Manger by simply calling any of our main numbers and listening to the message for the special toll free number to call.
We can play any kind of music that you want. For a complete list of our standard system music, go to www.pro-1.com/more. We prefer receiving your requests through your online planning account. Check previous emails sent to you or contact us for your login information. If you prefer to use paper, just complete either the Wedding Reception planner or the Song Request Form to choose the types of music you want played. These forms should be included with this information, but if you need a new copy, you can download them at www.pro-1.com/info or just contact us. You can also pick music that you don’t want played. You can be as detailed as you want to be. Our DJs are all experienced professionals and know what the hit songs are in each category and decade of music. So you don’t have to pick out all of the music. In fact, the best events we perform at have a balance of client’s and guest’s requests combined with songs that the DJ knows will keep your guests up and dancing. Tip on requesting music: The very best parties always have a mixture of songs that please and entertain all age groups. Most events have between 3 to 5 hours of dancing and that works out to about 55 – 70 songs. We suggest that your pick out roughly 5 – 20 songs in addition to the most important songs for your event. We would like to have your online planning tools or Wedding Reception Planner/Song Request Form completed 30 days or more prior to your event. If these forms are completed or received 14 days or less before your event, we may not be able to bring all of your requested music.
Absolutely! Although we have just about every song that people like to dance to, occasionally a client will have an older or hard to find song that they want to hear. You can provide the DJ with compact discs of special music you want to played at your event. Be sure to label your music with your name and phone number, indicate which songs you want played, and remember to pick them up at the end of the event.
Our DJs normally arrive 1 or more hours in advance of the scheduled music start time. The equipment set up is completed just prior to the music start time. Please make arrangements to have the location open and accessible at least several hours prior to the start time. If you need our equipment set up earlier than this, just let us know. There is a small charge for early set up (for the Dj’s time to wait for your event to start). See our Options Section on the Reserving Is Easy page of this information package.
Yes, your DJ will contact you several days or more in advance of your event. Before calling, your DJ will review your online planning account or on the Wedding Reception/ Song Request Form to get a feel for how you want your event to go. This is a great opportunity to get to know your DJ and for your DJ to get to know you better. You can discuss any last minute questions you may have.
For most formal events (wedding, proms, etc.) you DJ will wear a full tuxedo during the performance. After a few hours when the dance floor heats up, we will sometimes take our tux jacket off. During the set up and pack up of the equipment, our Dj’s will wear casual dress dress clothes. For less formal events (school dances, birthday parties, etc.) your DJ will wear casual dress clothes. You may also request specific attire to be worn for a particular themed party or holiday.
Yes! Our equipment can handle a standard RCA type stereo input from most audio visual devices. Let us know as early as possible about your specific needs. It’s also best to have the DJ and equipment set up somewhat close to the device because of the cord length limitations.
We can travel anywhere you need us, some locations may require a special quote. Generally we perform throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan.
Sure, just let us know so the DJ can plan for that. Our staff never consumes alcoholic beverages, however providing ice water and soft drinks is greatly appreciated.
This is totally up to you. Unlike many other service professional, we do not contractually add service charges, or graduities. After considering the level of service and quality of presentation, along with your overall enjoyment, we believe you should decide for yourself what level of gratuity, if any, you would like to give. AS a reference, a tip of 10% – 15% is most common. For accounting purposes, we ask that you pay any gratuity directly to the DJ.
