Additional Booking Notes
Kelvia brings her music on an Ipod. Client should coordinate with their event DJ prior to the event, to ensure that they bring an AUX cable hook up for the ipod to connect to.
For more intimate family events where a DJ is not hired, the Client should provide a sound system with strong volume that hooks up via an AUX cable. Bluetooth set ups are not the most reliable for these types of events.
In instances were a Client does NOT have a DJ nor a sound system, they should inform Kelvia so that she can bring her own portable equipment. Kelvia will need a minimum of 1wk notice to make arrangements to bring her travel speakers. Kelvia has two speaker options. One is suitable for large rooms, dining halls, or decks where the audience is near. The other is for larger outdoor locations. The larger speaker will require set up assistance, and should be coordinated with plenty of advanced notice.
