Frequently Asked Questions.


Why should I choose Crank-It-Up DJ for my entertainment?


Experience.  I have been performing at wedding dances, anniversaries, birthday parties, bars & night clubs, etc... since May of 2000.  Each show is done personally and professionally by me.


Professional appearance.  Cabling and equipment will be well hidden to provide a neat and clean appearance.


Professional and up to date sound equipment.  No home stereo gear here.  Professional grade equipment ensures that there will not be any break downs, and in the rare event that something might break down, spare equipment is always with.


Music selection.  A vast selection of the popular hits going all the way back to 1950.  I also subscribe to the monthly Promo Only DJ music service so you can be assured that I will always have the latest hits.


Computerized audio playback.  Have a special request that needs to be played for the next song?  No problem!  All of the music is stored digitally on computer.  A song can be queued to play in a moments notice.  Also, CD or record skipping is totally eliminated because of the computerized system.


Competitive pricing.



Do you interact and play games with the crowd?


I consider myself to be a medium interaction DJ.  I will announce special dances through out the show and may get a train started or do a limbo contest, but other than that I concentrate on keeping people dancing.  If you are looking for someone who can play a good line up of music that is sure to keep the crowd on the dance floor, I am the one for the job!


Do you have a microphone available for us to use for speeches?


Yes!  I always have a wireless and wired mic available.  There is never an extra charge to use the mic.

First, contact me and I will check that the date is available.  If it is, I will pencil in your date and mail out a contract.  The contract will need to be returned within a month, along with a $195 retainer fee to hold the date.  The reaminder of the payment is due the night of the event.  Upon receiving the contract and retiner fee, your date will be guaranteed and I will be in contact with you again closer to the event date.
