The Process

Let's Chat
Reaching out to us is the first step in making your dream wedding a reality. Whether you prefer a phone call, video meeting, or an in-person discussion at our North Madison office, we're flexible. During this initial consultation, we aim to understand your vision intimately, ensuring that we're the perfect fit for each other. Feel free to inquire, share your ideas, or even challenge us with your unique wedding concepts. Rest assured, this is a no-pressure environment solely focused on your needs and aspirations. By the end of our conversation, we'll have the insights necessary to craft a tailored proposal specifically designed to make your reception unforgettable.
Save the Date
Once you've reviewed your personalized proposal and made your selections, we'll expedite a digital service contract for your convenience. To secure your date exclusively with us, a $500 deposit is required. This amount will be credited toward the total cost of your chosen package. The remaining balance will be due two weeks before your special day, allowing you to focus on enjoying the lead-up to your wedding without any financial distractions.
Site Survey
Our background in event production underlines the importance of familiarizing ourselves with your venue well in advance. If your reception location is new to us, or if the layout poses unique logistical requirements, we'll arrange a site visit. This involves meeting with both you and the venue's banquet manager to walk through the space and discuss the event timeline. This step ensures a seamless load-in, optimal equipment setup, and a well-orchestrated flow for your celebration.
Event Planning with ViboDJ
As soon as you book your event with us, we'll send you an exclusive invitation to ViboDJ—a state-of-the-art planning app that makes wedding planning a breeze. Not only does this app set us apart from most other DJs in Connecticut, but it's also your central hub for all things wedding. You can start organizing every intricate detail of your day right from the get-go, from selecting your perfect first dance song to finalizing the evening's timeline. Once you've completed your planning, we'll seamlessly integrate this information and share it with your venue's banquet manager and other essential vendors, ensuring that everyone is aligned for your big day.
The Final Meeting: Leaving Nothing to Chance
Roughly two weeks before your special day, we'll convene for our final meeting—a crucial step to ensure a flawless celebration. Whether you prefer an in-person meeting at our North Madison office or a convenient phone chat, we'll allocate around 30 minutes to meticulously review your timeline, confirm your selected key songs, and clarify any name pronunciations. This meeting is designed to be thorough yet efficient, and you'll depart with a bolstered sense of confidence, knowing that every last detail is in expert hands.
On Your Wedding Day: Unforgettable Moments, Tailored to Perfection
As you step into your wedding venue, you'll feel a tranquil sense of confidence, knowing that what lies ahead will be nothing short of extraordinary. With meticulous planning and tailored execution, we'll bring your dream wedding to life, orchestrating every moment to flow seamlessly from start to finish. In our capable hands, your sole responsibility will be to revel in the joy and love that make this day the most memorable of your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

1How far in advance should I book my DJ?
We recommend booking your DJ as soon as you have your wedding date and venue confirmed. This can often be 9-12 months in advance, especially during peak wedding season. However, we will always do our best to accommodate last-minute bookings if we have availability.
2Do you have a specialty or preferred music style?
While we pride ourselves on our ability to cover a wide range of music genres, our specialty lies in customizing the music to each unique event. We use your preferences, guest demographics, and real-time audience reactions to curate the perfect mix for your wedding.
3How do you choose the songs for our event?
We use our extensive experience, knowledge of popular music trends, and most importantly, your personal preferences to curate the ideal soundtrack for your event. Our interactive planning app, Vibo, allows you to input your favorite songs, do-not-play songs, and special request songs for key moments, ensuring the music reflects your personal style.
4Can we provide a Do Not Play list?
Absolutely! Your wedding day is about you and your preferences. If there are songs or genres you'd rather not include, we'll ensure they aren't played during your celebration.
5Do you act as the emcee and make all the announcements?
Yes, our DJ's are skilled at not just spinning tracks but also in managing the flow of the event. However, if you prefer a dedicated emcee, we offer this as an additional service.
6How do you handle song requests?
We get asked this question a lot! Although we typically don't promote or ask guests for song requests, we are open to "entertaining" song requests from guests unless you specify otherwise. Our goal is to ensure everyone has a fantastic time while respecting the musical tone you wish to set for your wedding. But how do we respond you ask? Well It's usually one of two ways... When your wild Uncle Bill comes up and requests the 17 minute classic, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, we might politely suggest that particular song probably isn't best suited for wedding dancing. But when your Aunt Betty comes up and requests the Macarena and we know you don't want any line dancing, we'll might say something like: "Oh I love that song... We'll see if we can fit it into our lineup before the evening is over."
7What sound equipment do you use? Is there backup equipment available?
We use state-of-the-art professional DJ equipment to provide the best sound quality. We also always have backup equipment on-site to ensure that the party goes on uninterrupted.
8What does your setup look like?
Our setup is sleek, modern, and unobtrusive. We're happy to share photos or have you visit to see it in person. We also offer additional services like uplighting and dance floor lighting to enhance your venue's aesthetics.
9Are you insured?
Yes, J&S Entertainment carries liability insurance, which is a requirement for most wedding venues. This protects you, the venue, and us in the unlikely event of an accident.
10What is your cancellation policy?
We understand that plans can change. Our cancellation policy is detailed in the contract, which outlines any potential fees or refund timelines.
11How do we go about planning the music for our wedding?
Once you book your event with J&S Entertainment, we'll get you set up with our state-of-the-art mobile planning app, Vibo. You can enter all your event details, create song lists, build timelines, and collaborate directly with us on all the details.
12What attire will the DJ wear?
Our DJs dress professionally to blend seamlessly with your event. For weddings, they typically wear a suit or tuxedo, unless your event has a specific dress code or theme we should adhere to.
13How do you ensure the music isn't too loud for our older guests?
Our DJs are skilled at managing volume levels to create an enjoyable atmosphere for all. We aim to keep the music lively enough for the dance floor, yet comfortable for those seated. We can also strategically place speakers to optimize sound distribution.
14Can you provide music for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well?
Yes, we offer comprehensive packages that include ceremony and cocktail hour music. We can coordinate the sound across multiple areas with remote speakers, ensuring seamless transitions throughout your wedding.
15How interactive is the DJ during the event?
Our DJs tailor their level of interaction to your preferences. Whether you prefer a DJ who energizes the crowd or one who is more low-key, we can adapt to your vision.
16How do you handle any technical difficulties that might arise during the event?
Our DJs are well-versed in managing and troubleshooting any technical issues. We always have backup equipment on hand, ensuring that even in the unlikely event of a technical problem, the party will continue without interruption.
17Do you provide a written contract?
Absolutely. Once you've selected the package and options that suit your needs, we will prepare a contract detailing all services, costs, and terms. This ensures complete transparency and gives you the reassurance that all aspects of our service are confirmed in writing.
18What is your contract, payment and deposit policy?
Once we prepare a formal proposal and contract, we will hold the date for you for seven days. Upon signing of the contract, we require a 25% non-refundable deposit. The balance of the package selected is due two weeks prior to the event. Payments can be made by sending a check in the mail, Venmo, Zelle, Paypal, Cash App or with a credit or debit card right through our online portal. An AHC bank transfer option is also available through our online portal.
19Do you offer any special effects or lighting packages?
Yes, we offer a range of additional services including premium intelligent dance floor lighting, subwoofer additions for enhanced sound, projected monograms, starry night ceiling projections, and more. Our aim is to create a unique and memorable atmosphere for your event.
20What is the process if we need to change our wedding date after booking?
We understand that plans can change, especially during unpredictable times. If you need to change your wedding date, we will do our best to accommodate the new date. The availability of services on the new date may vary, and we advise clients to notify us of any changes as soon as possible.
