The first thing I do for every event is set up a meeting either in person or on the phone. I'll divide the meeting into 3 parts.
1. The first part is a question and answer session to understand more about you personally and what it is you're expecting.
2. The second part is where we will create an itinerary and divide each segment of your event with start and end times.
3. The last and final part is where we will go over all of the music you want played.
We will go over a brief but comprehensive contract and if you find everything satisfactory, you will place a check or cash deposit to hold your date and that's it! Your event will be confirmed. I hope to hear from you soon! Thanks!

Please feel free to call, email or text me anytime to set-up your meeting.
