Can we see you perform at a reception? 2018-02-24T22:00:54+00:00

Good question. A lot of Bridal magazines, books, and even other DJ companies will tell you to go pre-screen & watch a prospective DJ at a reception. If a DJ will invite you to watch him/her at a wedding reception, he/she will probably invite people to come and crash your wedding as well. At a private function like a wedding reception, the last thing you want is strangers poking in and sometimes helping themselves to the food or the bar. This has been known to happen, with DJ’s who actually invite clients to come. It also creates split loyalties for the performer because now he/she is auditioning for you as well as trying to perform for his primary client.

Disc Jockeys that do this professionally will tell you they won’t allow a client to come to a private function like that, but rather they will verify their talent and services through feedback surveys, client references with their e-mail addresses to contact them. In today’s economy, most private venues will not allow outsiders to peek in on receptions due to the growing number of thieves stealing gifts. Also because of the facts mentioned above. Remember, every wedding is different so the reception you’re viewing may have a completely different style of wedding you’re looking to have. Just like a movie or a play, you really can’t get an overall evaluation of the outcome of a 4 to 6 hour reception by watching just 10 to 15 minutes of a performance.

Can we meet our DJ to discuss our event? 2018-02-24T22:00:56+00:00

We encourage it! Current and potential clients are invited to have a one-on-one meeting with their DJ. This is a good chance for us to get to your likes and dislikes. There is no fee for this consultation.

How much is the deposit and when is the balance due? 2018-02-24T22:00:59+00:00

Robert J. Nicpon Productions requires a non-refundable deposit of $200 of the signed contract total as a deposit to confirm and reserve a date. The balance is due just before the event.

Will you take guest requests? 2018-02-24T22:01:01+00:00

Requests should be welcomed. If a song seems inappropriate, a good DJ will explain the reason and ask for an alternative selection. Robert J. Nicpon Productions has a long- standing reputation for filling as many requests as possible including your favorite selections.

How early will you arrive to set-up? 2018-02-24T22:01:04+00:00

An average of 1-2 hours before your event starts. This allows us to perform sound & lighting checks before your guests arrive to ensure everything is the way you want it.

How will our DJ be dressed? 2018-02-24T22:01:06+00:00

Great question! Proper attire reflects a positive image to your guests. Robert J. Nicpon Production’s personalities will be dressed appropriately for your occasion. Whether a suit and tie or a modern tuxedo with all the trimmings, we’ll dress accordingly.

May we contact your references? 2018-02-24T22:01:09+00:00

No doubt! References are a major part of the entertainment business. It is a good idea to get a few client and business references. Robert J. Nicpon Productions has a great reputation within the wedding vendor community. Check out our reviews online!

Are we guaranteed the DJ of our choice on the day of our event? 2018-02-24T22:01:11+00:00

A written contract with your specific entertainer guarantees you will have no surprises on the day of your event. It is a good idea to put an initial deposit down as soon as you find the person you prefer. Reputable DJ’s will often be booked a year or more in advance on “peak” days. Experience brings knowledge of common problems and situations. Be sure your entertainer has experience with your type of event. Robert J. Nicpon Productions designates the appropriate personality to match your specific needs. On average, our entertainers have 10-15 years of performing experience.

Will you provide an emergency back-up system at our event? 2018-02-24T22:01:14+00:00

Absolutely! Weddings, Mitzvahs and special events are often once in a lifetime opportunity. A back-up system protects your investment. Robert J. Nicpon Productions carries back-up equipment in our warehouse. Our systems are set up early and tested to performance levels. If any piece of gear needs replacing it can be done before your event starts.

Do you use professional gear? 2018-02-24T22:01:16+00:00

You betcha! Using professional sound and lighting equipment helps ensure reliable service and a quality presentation. Robert J. Nicpon Productions understands that you want the best possible quality and performance for your money.
