- Probably the most important question: With so many Wedding DJ’s in the Sacramento region, why should I hire you?
1. My experience in the Wedding Industry dates back to 2006.
I started in the Wedding Industry in 2006 as a Videographer. During that time I’ve seen just about every setup there is when it comes to weddings and DJs. There’s some things I do differently than many other typical DJ’s based on that experience. Some are big and some are small. For example: when I put up dancing lights, I put them where they WON’T be right in your eyes. I put them up high. As a vidographer I definitely have experience in lighting. We will place the lighting to maximize what your photographer and videographer has to work with.
2. I’m NOT an aspiring club DJ, which means your wedding take first priority.
I have never had a desire to be a famous club DJ. My interest in DJing at weddings stems from my days as a Wedding Videographer and wanting to learn another aspect of the Wedding Industry. I’ve been mixing music since I was a young teenager so DJing has always felt natural. My goal is to use my knowledge, passion and talent to provide the best in wedding DJ entertainment that Northern California has to offer.
3. I don’t sub contract other DJ’s, which means that I will be there from initial planning stages to finish on Wedding day.
A lot of big companies will have you meet with one DJ initially and then he or she will hand off your information to someone else and this new person (who you have never met) will be your DJ at your wedding. I don’t send out teams of DJ’s to various weddings. Instead, I will be there with you through the planning stages all the way through to your Wedding day. The only exception is if there’s a life threatening emergency and then one of my staff will be prepared to take over.
- Will you act as an Emcee during our event?
Yes, either myself or one of my trained staff members who accompany me will act as an Emcee during your event. This is one of the services we offer that is key to the success of your function. As an Emcee, we will make all announcements and make sure that the night keeps on track according to your time line.
Harjo Productions uses the latest in club style lighting and sound equipment. The music library is digital and we have a wide selection of top hits. The DJ system is very attractive and unobtrusive. We offer full club style lighting. In addition we can provide wireless microphones and a video projector.
- What type of music do you play?
Harjo Productions has an extensive selection of music consisting of Club Dance, Classic Rock, Country, Oldies, Big Band, Motown, R & B, Rap, Disco, and Hip-Hop. We have everything from the 1950’s to today’s top 40, so there is something for all age groups. We’re subscribed to top notch DJ Pool services, so we always have the latest trending dance music. We will discuss with you in advance what types of music you want played during your Wedding and we will play only those types of music.
- Do you offer any planning tools to help with music selection?
Yes! When you book your wedding with Harjo Productions, you will be presented with a customized binder. Inside you will find hundreds of song ideas organized by popularity, genre, decade, and dance event type. Couples really enjoy the customized binder because it enables them to make notes, scratch off, and highlight song choices. The binder also includes an in-depth planner so you can completely customize your special day on how you want us to perform it.
- Do you provide music and equipment for wedding ceremonies?
Yes we can provide music for your Wedding Ceremony. Make sure to let us know that you will also need us for the Wedding Ceremony. We can play all your wedding music as well as provide wireless microphones to be used by you and your officiant so you guests do not miss a single moment.
I am located in Citrus Heights and will travel anywhere within 120 miles (one way) from my home Office. This includes the Greater Sacramento area, Lake Tahoe and the San Francisco Bay Area. If you are not sure if your wedding is within our travel area, just ask. We will be glad to look it up and see.
- Do you provide wireless microphones for the wedding ceremony, toasts etc?
Yes, we provide up to two wireless microphones to be used during the ceremony and reception.
- Do you have back ups for your equipment?
Yes, and this was very important to me when I started. I wouldn’t even take my first wedding client until I had a fully backed up system. If any of my equipment stops working, I have another system in place so that your event can keep going. I always bring 2 laptops and the sole purpose for the 2nd is a back up. Your complete wedding timeline and song choices are duplicated on this second computer and is already hooked into the mix and is ready to play at any time should the need ever arise. The mixer can be bypassed and I also keep an additional mixer with me. The speakers I use are self powered. That means that if one stops working, I still have the others that can keep going as each speaker cabinet has it’s own amplification system and isn’t reliant on a single amplifier. I also bring a monitor that runs completely off of it’s own power, so even if the venue should lose power, I can still play music.
- How do we book your DJ services?
Call me (916) 752-9441, or email me at email@example.com so we can discuss your entertainment needs. We will meet for a free consultation and put together an entertainment package based on your needs that includes pricing. Once you approve your package, and sign a written agreement on services, a $100 deposit will hold the date of your event. Harjo Productions books on a first come, first serve basis. After the initial deposit, the remaining balance will be due ten days prior to the Wedding Date.
