Questions Frequently Asked

Do you have a question? Would you like an answer? Then check out of a few of the questions we hear most often from potential clients, answered by owner and DJ, Michael Tinio.


What’s the process to hiring you?

First, let’s start with a phone call or email. We’ll talk about a few details, such as availability, and then we can schedule a meeting. At that meeting, we will discuss your style and vision, any music preferences, and generally what I do. After that, if you’d like to hire me, then the next time we see each other is a couple of weeks prior to the event. We’ll talk about the schedule and order of things for your event. If it’s a wedding, then we will discuss first dance, father and daughter dance, and so on.


What makes Behind the DJ Booth different?

We are skilled, stylish, and professional. We always aim to exceed every client’s expectations by delivering the ultimate soundtrack to their wedding or event. We are not a one-stop-shop, which means that we focus on being the best DJs we can be instead of a DJ who also does photography who also rents out equipment. Our focus is on enhancing your experience with the right song at the right moment.


What are your rates?

Because there are many factors that go into pricing (location, length of time needed, bilingual emcee, the number of guests, and more), please contact us for a quote. We offer customized pricing to fit your vision of the wedding or event.  Our average rates for 2017 start at $1,800.  


What do you wear to events?

We come dressed stylishly to blend in as one of your guests. We may be artists, but we know it’s important to blend in and keep the focus on you.


Do you have liability insurance?

Yes, we do. We carry a 1 million dollar insurance policy.


How far will you travel for an event?

We travel anywhere in Southern California, Orange County, and all over the U.S. Any events that are 30 miles or more outside of Orange County, a travel rate will apply.


Do you DJ for destination weddings?

Yes, we do. We love to travel all over the world! For destination weddings and special events, travel rates are customized to that particular event. But, typically rates will include:

  • Equipment Rental

  • Air Fare

  • Hotel Stay

  • Rental Car


Can you emcee the wedding?

Absolutely. We can make introductions and announcements. We are all professionals who have experience in public speaking. If a bilingual emcee is needed, we can arrange for that as well.


Do you offer packages, rentals, equipment, lights, or portable dance floors?

We do not. We focus on the music so we can offer you the best possible soundtrack for your event.


What do you do if your equipment fails?

First, knock on wood, this has never happened. I have set up my equipment in a way to allow for any failures. There are redundancies in place so your night will go on as if nothing has happened.


Do you have a backup in case of illness or unforeseen circumstances?

Thankfully, we’ve never needed to use our backup system. But, if anything were to happen, we have additional DJs who are more than capable and willing to perform at your event.


Will you stick to a play and do-not-play list?

Yes. We encourage you to offer songs that you do not want to hear, and those that you’d really love to hear. By doing so, we can understand your musical tastes and adapt our style to fit your needs.


What do you do if I’m too far away to meet with you before the wedding?

We can always set up an appointment to meet via Skype or FaceTime.


How do I secure your services and book the date?

Email or call so we can talk first. I would love to meet with you to get to know you and your needs. From there, a contract and a 35% retainer will be required to secure the date. As a courtesy, your date will be held for three days after we meet in case you need time to sign the contract or send payment.


Do you have any testimonials or reviews?

As a seasoned professional DJ, I have many testimonials and references for happy customers. If you’d like to read a few testimonials or talk to any of my references, take a look at reviews below or contact me for references.
