Frequently Asked Questions


It's important to ask the right questions when hiring a DJ.


We think the DJ is one of the most important vendors of any event.  They set the tone, manage the logistics, energy, and flow from the very beginning to the very end of the day.    Not all newly people or corporate clients know what questions they should be ask to separate the professionals from the rookie DJs. Over the years, the Custom Dj Company have received hundreds of smart questions from clients planning their events from small to large. Below we've addressed some of the most popular and important questions asked by our lovely clients which will hopefully answer most of your questions.
