How far in advance do we need to book our DJ?
Music & Entertainment is a vital part of every reception. When you find the right DJ for you, we suggest booking with them as quickly as possible. Some clients book with us as far as 2 years in advance. Like any other vendor, we are constantly getting inquiries for most dates, so the sooner you book the greater the chance of securing the entertainer you prefer for your event.
What makes ESP Entertainment different from any other company?
It is our belief that no two parties are ever the same. By taking the time to meet with you to custom design your reception around your taste, you are guaranteed to have the type of party that YOU want.
Are we able to meet with our DJ before our event?
Of course you can. When you book with ESP Entertainment you will always be able to meet in person with your DJ to go over all of the details and planning of your event. You may contact us as often as you like, whether by phone or e-mail, and of course you will always have access to one of the owners of the company.
What style of DJ will we have at our event?
Only a true professional can adapt to any style of party his/her client prefers. When you meet with your DJ you get to decide the approach you want us to take. We can be very low key, making the essential announcements or we can be interactive and out there dancing with your guests and showing people the latest dances steps. The choice is yours.
Can we give you a list of songs we want played?
Due to the intimate nature of Weddings and other private affairs we do not invite potential clients to look in on someone else’s special day. We will not invite anyone else to visit your event either. However, if we have a public showcase that we will be performing at we will be happy to invite you out to see us at such an event.

What time will my DJ arrive at my event?

Under certain circumstances, depending on the set up, we may require more time but we will let you and your banquet facility know in advance.
