For DJ’s Wishing to Work With Us:
Just as we tell our potential clients, at Fire 116 Entertainment we are not trying to be the biggest, nor the cheapest. We are not arrogant enough to claim that we are “the best in the world”. We would rather focus on QUALITY than volume and not compare ourselves with others unfairly. We are confident in the level of service and attention to detail that we provide our clients for the fair price that we charge. We demand that everyone in our organization from our event planning people to our DJ’s always treat others with respect. Whether that be a client or a competitor, we wish everyone much success. Our goal is not to be the largest DJ service in town or claim that we are “The Best”. Who would judge or validate those statements anyway? And would a client really care? We certainly don’t. We seek one goal: 100% Client Satisfaction. Therefore, to inquire about working with us, email us at email@example.com with a sample mix ....and we seek the following qualifications:
Our List of Musts:
- You must own your own sound system, music, wireless microphone and custom lighting effects. Please note: We never use fog, bubble machines or those hokey inflatable guitars, glow necklaces, etc. We don't want anything to distract from our clients being the stars of the show.
-Youmustownandinsure your own vehicle and one that is in excellent mechanical condition. When a client’s wedding is your destination, you have to be there on time. No room for error.
-You must be the type of person who strives for 100% client satisfaction every time. If only 90% of your past clients would say that you are a quality entertainer we are sorry but we are not interested.
-You must have at least 5 years experience as a WEDDING DJ. We do not train anyone. We are sorry, but there are many fine companies out there that provide training. We are not one of them. We make a “No Trainee Pledge” to our customers and we have never violated it.
-You must be the type of person who can motivate others to have FUN through the strength of your personality, your excellent choice of music, reading the crowd and most importantly, honoring the wishes and requests of the client.
-You must understand and respect the decorum of a wedding ceremony and have experience performing at them, as this is one of the services we provide our clients in addition to performing at their receptions.
-You must also respect the clergy when performing a ceremony or interacting with them at a reception event. These devoted individuals serve a vital role in our society and deserve your utmost respect at all times.
-You must possess an open mind regarding and broad knowledge of all types of music. Our DJ’s play what our clients wish to hear. Not what the DJ wishes to hear.
-You must be the type of person who is ALWAYS on time. Every time. We require you to arrive at the venue a full 75 minutes prior to the first tune being played. A full 75 minutes. Not 65, not 60. A full 75 minutes. Also, we promise our clients that our DJ's will start the music 10 minutes early if they want us to.
-You must be professional in appearance, speech, and demeanor at all times at events, not only with the client but also with our friends and co-workers in this business, banquet hall managers, catering companies, photography firms, etc. We do not allow a DJ to consume any alcohol, smoke a cigarette, take a break, solicit tips or exhibit any other unprofessional behaviors at events.
-We apologize sincerely if these “Musts” offend you in any way. But we feel strongly that it would be better to risk offending a potential new DJ than to risk offending even one of our clients. We hope you understand and wish you success in the future be that with us or otherwise. Take good care of yourselves and those whom you love dearly in your lives.
