Cornerstone Entertainment DJ Services
As a full-service DJ serving Lake Tahoe, Reno, Northern California, and beyond, I will help you from the moment you contact me through the completion of your event. My goal is to make sure your event is one everyone will remember. Here is some of what I have to offer…
Yes, we belong to Weddings of the West and the South Lake Tahoe Wedding and Honeymoon Association. We often attend their monthly meetings so that we may continue to learn and also to network. We also regularly attend National Association of Catering and Events meetings.
We require 50% of the booking fee, which can be paid in installments. 50% is normal in the wedding and photo booth industries.
I usually arrive at least 3 hours before I start unless otherwise instructed. I like to be punctual and prepared. I will be set up well before your guests arrive.
As much as you would like. Most of my clients want me to select the majority of the music based on how the crowd responds. However, I’m here to work for you and will play what you want.
Black suit and tie. The jacket will come off when it’s hot, but I make sure it’s on for announcements.
This is up to you. Unless you instruct otherwise, I’ll be sure not to play anything from your “Do Not Play” list or anything that is not within the musical genres you desire.
Never. Attempting more than one event in a day wouldn’t allow me the energy and attention that an event deserves. I want to always be rested and prepared for my clients.
This can’t be answered quickly, but I’m asked this a lot. First, I work on creating a good dance floor atmosphere before the wedding even begins. I discuss with the bride/groom what music their guests will like. I also set up dance floor lighting that really helps set a mood for dancing.
When there’s a buffet, I’ll often take dance requests from tables before releasing them to eat. It builds rapport with guests, which makes them more comfortable with me, and it gives me a gauge on the music they want to hear.
When dance time starts, I pay attention to the crowd and “read the dance floor”. I’ll take song requests, letting people know they have to dance to them!
If a dance floor really needs a jump start, I’ll grab a microphone, head to the dance floor, and teach everyone a dance like the Cupid Shuffle.
I’ll even pull older or younger folks onto the floor to dance with me (provided the bride/groom have okayed that in advance).
I can do this most of the time. Please let me know if you are considering this so we can plan accordingly.
We always carry a backup camera, printer, computer, monitor, and cables. We do our best to avoid problems, but when they occur, we thrive on implementing solutions seamlessly.
Yes. We are insured by State Farm. Our liability policy covers up to $1,000,000 per incident and $2,000,000 per year. We’ve never made a claim.
DJs told me I needed to DJ weddings and events long before I even considered DJing. I have always presented well and been comfortable with a microphone. I love music and I love coordinating for people. I like my job!
