Frequently Asked Questions - DJ
What is included in the cost of my event?
Setup time, breakdown time, and ALL equipment, including additional sound systems and wireless microphones for parties with up to 300 guests. For parties over 300 guests, a custom quote may be necessary to ensure your event's equipment and staffing needs are met. Our flat-rate pricing is refreshingly easy to understand — there are no hidden charges, and all fees are clearly stated in your agreement with Please Mr DJ Entertainment.
Do you offer additional services, such as ceremony musicians, lighting and photobooths?
Our business model has always centered on offering a full service, high quality set of entertainment options for our clients to choose from. We offer dance floor lighting, custom dj booths, gobo monograms, photo montages, greenscreen photobooths, red carpet runways, and uplighting just to name a few. Please browse our website for more details surrounding our great entertainment offerings.
Do you have bilingual Dj’s?
Please Mr DJ Entertainment has bilingual DJ’s available upon request to make all of your announcements in both English and Spanish.
How much do you charge?
Our base rates for parties range from $300 to $650. We base our pricing on an objective structure that only factors in the month and day of the event, which ensures consistency and fairness to all of our clients. We are not in the practice of subjectively pricing events based on our estimation of your budget — for example, we don’t price events higher if a client is using an expensive reception site or if they were referred by a well-known wedding planner. Complete and accurate pricing is always available on our website for your review.
Do you offer a Military discount?
Please Mr DJ provides a 10% Military discount as a Thank you to our brave men/women in the U.S. Military. Proof of service required!
Why do you offer a 5% discount for paying in full with the signed contract?
We offer this discount because it simplifies our operations (it’s less work to process one payment than two, and the time saved in not having to track and collect a balance makes the discount worth it to us) and it simplifies our clients’ budget management. It’s completely optional, and we’re happy to accept a 50% retainer with the agreement and the balance a week before the event if that’s your preference.
What areas do you serve?
Please Mr DJ Houston is a Houston based company and provides service to Houston and surrounding counties including Galveston.
Are you insured?
Please Mr DJ Houston carries a full liability insurance policy for each performer with a coverage value of $1,000,000. We are happy to provide you or your venue with a copy of our insurance policy upon request.
How are emergencies handled?
Please Mr Dj Houston always reserves and has a backup DJ ready to fill in for any of our events. We’re proud to have originated the most rock-solid emergency backup plan in the DJ industry. Each of our DJs takes the responsibility of performing for a wedding extremely seriously, and is both contractually and ethically obligated to do everything possible to avoid emergencies. However, to ensure your event’s complete success, every weekend we pay one of our DJs (one of the performers from our regular roster, not a semi-retired, “B-list” DJ or one from another company) to be the “Emergency DJ” on call. That DJ is prepared with appropriate attire, equipment, and the music and paperwork for each wedding on our schedule. In addition, each of our DJs brings a full set of backup equipment to every event, and the company provides backup transportation in case of car trouble. We believe our system is the most comprehensive emergency backup plan in the entire industry, and it costs us many tens of thousands of dollars each year to operate — a worthwhile investment in our clients’ peace of mind.
Do you have reviews or references?
We have both! We currently have many reviews (with a perfect five-star average rating) on Wedding Wire, the industry's most prolific wedding planning website. If you prefer to speak with some of our former clients personally, we will (upon request) gladly provide you with references who are more than happy to discuss the quality of our performance and customer service. You will not be asked to “cold call” people to check our references; we will be sure to let them know to expect your call. We want you to feel completely comfortable in researching our services.
Can we visit you at a performance?
All of our events are private and in respect of privacy to our clients on their special day, Please Mr Dj Houston does not permit prospective clients to “drop in” on a private event. However, our references, online reviews, and the information we provide you in our initial meeting will speak volumes of our experience, style and professionalism.

Will we meet our DJ to discuss our wedding entertainment needs?
Most definitely, Please Mr DJ Houston will schedule an online video or phone conference anywhere between 4 to 6 weeks prior to your event to go over all aspects of your wedding. Why video or phone conference only? Simply to keep our cost down and pass those savings onto you.

I want to make sure all the music is CLEAN at my event!
All of our music is radio edited! We DO NOT play any music with profanity. However, just because a song has offensive words removed from the songs doesn't mean that the song's meanings don't change. I always cite "My Humps" by Black Eyed Peas. I have a clean version of the song ... but that doesn't change the song's message!
Do You Provide Karaoke?
Yes, however it is not a full karaoke system so we don't charge additional for it. We use an iPad app which contains thousands of songs to choose from for your Karaoke pleasures!

Do you have any suggestions on choosing an area for the booth, and what are the space and power requirements?
We recommend that you try to position the photo booth in an area where folks can easily access. No matter where you put the photo booth it becomes our top priority to ensure all guests know it’s there and enjoy it all night long! The surface must be level & solid with access to power outlets. We can usually work to adjust the layout for most situations but should have a minimum of a 12’x12′ area – preferably more for optimal setups. Client is responsible for ensuring the location where the booth will be placed has a 110V, 10 amps, 3 prong power outlet. We provide extension cords. To keep it plain and simple, a standard wall outlet is needed within reasonable distance from the booth. The photo booth setup requires an area of at least 12′ deep x 12′ wide x 10′ high at a minimum. To make sure your guests have an enjoyable experience, we suggest more space than that – mainly to allow folks to gather and look at props, socialize, laugh at the fun, and partake in the excitement. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us and we can provide helpful guidance for the specific location.
How many people fit in your photo booth?
Well let’s just say we have had been known to get as many as 10-12 when opened for an “open air” shot, and that’s what makes it more fun. That’s the beauty of our photo booth – it is not limited. We take great pride of having a Photo Booth that quickly adapts to size when a larger group of guests want to huddle up for a photo! The more people in the booth laughing and having a good time will ensure we are the life of the event.
