What Questions To Ask A DJ

Picking your DJ is like picking what to wear, normally you don’t grab the first thing in the closet.

(Unless of course you are a clown…or Lady GaGa LOL 😉 )

Most couples meet with at least 2 suppliers per category before making a decision on their wedding so it is a good thing to have a few questions prepared. This article hopefully will give you some ideas on what to ask your potential DJ.


  • How long has your business been running for?
  • How many years have you/your DJs personally been DJing for?
  • How many weddings a year do you do?
  • What kind of equipment do you use?
  • What do you wear to my event?
  • What happens if you get sick?
  • What happens if your equipment breaks?
  • How early do you set up?
  • How long does it take you to set up?
  • Is set up/pack down/ meetings all covered in your costs?
  • What lights do you bring and is it included?
  • What deposit is required?
  • When is the balance due?
  • What is your cancellation policy?
  • Do I get to meet the DJ who will be doing my event?
  • What if we absolutely DO/DO NOT want certain songs/styles/genres played?
  • Can guests make requests?
  • Can you MC the night?
  • How much experience have you had as an MC?
  • Can we please have a contract?
  • How quickly do you respond to emails/phonecalls?
  • DO you have any recent testimonials?


A good DJ company (like Komodo Music 😉 ) can answer all these questions with confidence and ensure any other questions you may have are easily dealt with.

Whenever you leave a meeting, make sure that you feel confident with the DJ company you have chosen:-)
