Frequently Asked Questions
 
1
 
DO YOU USE PROFESSIONAL GEAR?
 
 
Using professional equipment helps insure reliable service and quality presentation. I understand that you want the best performance for your money.
 
 
Music and Memories uses state-of-the-art equipment. From sound equipment designed to meet the demands of your venue and crowd to the camera systems and flash photography equipment, we know that you demand reliable gear and a staff with the knowledge to troubleshoot any situations they might be faced with.

WILL YOU PROVIDE EMERGENCY BACK-UP EQUIPMENT AT OUR EVENT?
 
  Weddings and other special events are often once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. A back-up sound system, camera gear and spare parts all help protect your investment.
     Our DJs, photographers and lighting technicians all carry or have access to back-up equipment, so you can rest easy.

   ARE YOU INSURED?
 
     Insurance is part of any legitimate business. Liability and casualty policies will protect you, your guests and your DJ company from unforeseen circumstances.
 
     We can provide proof of liability for you or your location's peace of mind if requested.

   DO YOU BELONG TO ANY PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS OR TRADE GROUPS?
 
     An involved businessperson shows a willingness to learn, network and share ideas. Belonging to a professional trade group reflects a caring attitude.
 
     DJ Chad McMeen is a proud member of the American Disc Jockey Association and routinely meets with other music professionals to discuss thoughts and new ideas.  Our Photographers also interact with local trade professionals to stay current on techniques and to exchange ideas.

   ARE WE GUARANTEED THE DJ OF OUR CHOICE ON THE DAY OF OUR EVENT?
 
     A written contract with your specific entertainer guarantees you will have no surprises on the day of your event. It is a good idea to put an initial payment down as soon as you find the person you prefer. Reputable DJ's will often be booked a year or more in advance on "peak" days.
 
     Music and Memories puts everything in writing and also offers you the opportunity to meet your entertainer or photographer before making a decision.
 
6
 
   HOW MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?
 
     Experience brings knowledge of common problems and situations. Be sure your DJ / Photographer has experience with your type of event. Providing services at a Teen Party or residential event is very different than coordinating the details involved in a wedding.
 
     Music and Memories Chad McMeen has been a professional disc jockey since 1992 and has entertained more than 450 events.  He has been a photojournalist for the Marine Corps since 1996 and his work has been printed in national magazines as well as the Los Angeles Times and Washington Post.  Our subcontractors are hand selected and personally trained before providing services under the supervision of our company . Please visit the profiles to see photos and read more about Chad and our staff.

   MAY WE CALL YOUR REFERENCES?
 
     References are a major part of the entertainment business. It is a good idea to get a few client and business references.
 
     Music and Memories is happy to give you client or business references. Visit our references page for more information.

   HOW WILL YOU BE DRESSED?
 
     Proper attire reflects a positive image to your guests.
 
     Music and Memories DJ staff will come dressed in  a tuxedo unless you request otherwise.  Photographers will dress appropriately for your event and the attire will be adjusted depending on the weather.  There is often no reprieve from the South Carolina summer heat and the safety of our personnel is just as important to us as the result of their services.

   HOW EARLY WILL YOU BE TO OUR SITE TO SET UP? (DJ specific)
 
     An average of sixty minutes should be allowed for set up and sound check. Normally there is no additional charge for this service.
 
     Music and Memories prefer to arrive early so music can begin as soon as the first guest enters your party. Early arrival also allows us to perform a sound check and prepare for your special day.
 
10
 
   WILL YOU ALLOW REQUESTS? (DJ specific)
 
     Requests should be welcome. If a song seems inappropriate, a good DJ will explain the reason and ask for an alternative selection.
 
     Music and Memories has a reputation for filling as many requests as possible, including your favorite  selections.
