What music do you play?
We have a really wide selection of music, from 50s and 60s up to today's top 40 so there is something for all tastes and age groups.
We specialise in music from the 50s, 60s and 70s but rest assured, whatever era you fancy, we will make it a night to remember! We can play dance music, classic rock, country, oldies, big band, Motown, R & B, rap, disco, hip-hop and any other music that you desire.
We understand that all events are different and guests have different tastes so we generally tailor the playlist to your audience by 'reading the room' during the event and seeing what music gets everyone up on the dance floor!
We are happy to play any requests and we can also play music from a set playlist that you have provided prior to the event.
It is completely up to you what music we play, it is your event, not ours!
How much do you charge?
We do not have a fixed rate because every event is different. The price we charge will depend on how long the event runs for and other factors such as the distance we need to travel and the equipment that we need to bring.
How do we know our event is confirmed with you?
After we have confirmed your event booking, either on the phone or by email, we will ask you to pay a deposit to save the date. Once you have paid your deposit we will send you a confirmation email.
This confirmation email is proof of your booking with us so please check it carefully and then keep it for your records.
How far in advance do we need to book?
As a general rule, we would recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment.
If you are planning an event during our busy peak seasons then it is a good idea to book us around a year in advance . Our peak seasons are during Christmas and during the the summer wedding season (June - September).
The rest of the year we can be a lot more flexible and we may be able to attend your event with as little as two week's notice.
What equipment is included?
We provide all the latest audio and visual equipment needed to make sure you and your guests have a night to remember.
All our equipment is modern and up to date including the latest HD AV Equipment. The main speakers we use give crystal clear sound and the sub bass speakers are thumping! We can provide a full club style lighting system with laser light show if required.
We can provide a 1080P HD projector screen if you want us to display images during the event. You can supply the images to us before the event. We also provide radio microphones for guest use during the event i.e. for wedding speeches on your special day.
All equipment is PAT tested annually so we are fully covered for insurance purposes.
Do you have public liability insurance?
Yes, Sure Sounds Disco has full public liability insurance to the value of £10 million. Certificate is available on request.
How long do you play music for?
How long we play for is entirely up to you! A typical wedding playlist can last for about four hours but you can decide in advance how long you want your DJ to perform and we will tailor the cost to reflect this.
If you are having so much fun during the event that you want the DJ to play for longer (this happens a lot!) then you can purchase additional time on the day of the event. Of course, we will only do this if the venue allows us to.
When will you arrive to set up the equipment
It takes about 40 minutes to set up the equipment so we generally arrive an hour before the start of the event so that we are fully set up and ready to start by the time your first guests arrive.
If you want us to arrive earlier then not a problem, although this will require an additional early set up fee.
What room and facilities do you need at the venue?
The minimum amount of space that we need for our equipment is 3 x 2 metres. We will also need access to a power supply.
When and how do I pay?
When you confirm the booking, we ask for a 25% non-refundable booking fee to secure the date. The outstanding balance must be paid in full up to a week before the event date.
Payments can be made by cash, bank transfer, cheque or PayPal.
Please note: all payments are non-refundable. In certain circumstances we can offer an alternative date, if we are available.
What will the DJ be wearing?
Whatever type of event, the DJ will always be dressed smartly, typically wearing black trousers, a formal long sleeved shirt with black smart formal shoes.
If you want the DJ to wear a special outfit such as a tuxedo or dinner suit or even casual wear then please let us know in advance.
We are happy to wear whatever you want us to (within reason!)
