How do we book DJ services?
Fill out an online Event Request Form link located at the bottom of the Xenlive.net homepage and we will respond immediately. Once you are ready to move forward we will send a contract.
How does the pricing work?
Every project is unique. We base our rates on several factors such as event requirements, time, number of attendees, travel considerations, number of setups, etc. We do not charge for setup or breakdown. Our rate begins when the client wants the music to start. For weddings, this is usually 30 minutes before the beginning of the ceremony.
Will the DJ act as an MC during our event?
Yes, our DJ will also act as the MC during the event. Performing MC duties is actually one of the most important aspects of our service and is something that separates us from other standard DJ companies. Our DJs are more than just DJs who can play your favorite tunes on a turntable. All of our DJs/MCs are very articulate communicators who will engage and interact with the guests as requested. For larger events with additional production requirements, we highly suggest having a separate DJ and MC which will allow more flexibility to meet your requirements on the special day as the MC can focus on the announcements and hosting while the DJ will focus on providing the music. This is all part of a team effort between the MC, DJ, and day-of-coordinator or planner. Please checkout our MC page HERE.
Have you worked culturally diverse weddings?
Yes and this is very common given the ethnic diversity in the DC area. Our DJs are well versed in serving clients from different cultures and have worked everything from Indian Bollywood themed weddings, Jewish, Latino, Sri Lankan, African, Arabic, Polynesian, Filipino, Christian, and Military weddings. Given the amount of music diversity we highly encourage clients to be highly involved in the song selection process.
Do you provide music and equipment for wedding ceremonies?
Yes, we normally provide music for the Wedding Ceremony. This includes a full PA system, wireless microphones to include a lavalier microphone for the officiant. We will also provide a primary sound system for the reception.
