Frequently Asked Questions
You have questions? There’s a good chance you’ll find an answer here in the FAQs.
Q. Are You Insured? A. Yes, I am fully insured.
Q. Do you have a portal to manage our event? A. Not only do I have a portal, but I am the founder of cueplatform.com, the next generation platform for all event professionals to manage events. This includes a simple and all inclusive timeline capturing all the major milestones of your day.
Q. Do You Play Other Events Than Weddings? A. Yes, I do. While my primary focus is on weddings I do perform for Birthdays, Corporate Events, or any other function where you desire an uncompromising DJ.
Q. What Is Your Style Of MCing? A. I would describe my style of MCing as non-hype interaction providing crisp and clear announcements but not letting it dominate the evening. I am not there to hear my own voice or become the center of attention.
Q. What Is Your Style Of DJing? A. My focus is on the quality of music and service being delivered and to ensure smooth transitions, and an acute focus on the crowd to ensure the right music being played at the right volumes at the right time. Read more about my history and what drives me and you can listen to many of my transitional styles over at my Mixcloud page.
Q. How Does DJ Lou Paris Coordinate The Event? A. As soon as you select my services, I will begin to coordinate with you, your vendors, your planner, and do everything to provide you as stress-free of a process as possible. This means making sure you are comfortable with the level of service I will provide for you, going over all the details to make sure I have all the necessary details, going over a final proposal, everything to make your event successful.
Q. Do You Meet Face-to-Face, Email, Phone, Zoom? A. The answer is yes (to all four). I will work with you on whichever method you are most comfortable with. I will send you a synopsis of our discussions via email to make sure we are on the same page.
Q. Do We Get A Contract? A. Of course! A contract protects both you the customer and myself.
Q. Do You Have Backup Equipment? A. Yes, I do. Having a backup is critical to ensure that your event has no unplanned interruptions. As part of my career background I’ve worked in IT with a big focus on disaster and backup solutions, literally writing the book for some businesses on their backup strategies.
Q. Do You Have A Backup DJ? A. While I don’t have other DJs under my business, if for some reason I am unable to perform on the day of your event, I will ensure a high-quality wedding DJ will be in place for you.
Q. Can I Request Songs? A. Most definitely. You can build your request list through my online customer portal and I will do everything I can to take requests at the event. Typically I prefer my clients to request a few for the evening. This allows me to learn about the music you like (and dislike) and I can shape the rest of the music with that as the foundation.
