Q.) Which DJ will be at my wedding?
A.) During the initial meeting with Maximum Beat DJ, we do our best to pair you up with a Dj we feel you will have chemistry with. We provide a number of DJs to choose from but booking also depends on availability of our staff for the date of your event. Once you pay a deposit it will secures a DJ for your event, and you will then be notified which DJ will be at your wedding, have a chance to talk with your DJ and get to know him/her. However if need be we do provide one free change of DJ as long as its no less then 60 days before your event. This gives you ample time to go see the DJ we chose for you in action and build a friendship with him/her, but still leaves time for us to find you a replacement if you feel the chemistry is missing.
