Frequently Asked Questions


  Time Warp Mobile DJ offers

   customized entertainment

   for your celebration. 

  • Do you have lighting?
    Professional dance lights help to set the mood—from that romantic first dance to a rocking good time.
  • What types of music do you have?
    Time  Warp Mobile DJ offers an extensive selection of songs from the current  hits back to the 1920's.  This includes Pop-Rock, Country, Motown,  Swing, Big Band, and Classic    Rock-Oldies. Edited-lyric versions of  some of the Top-40 songs are also available. 
  • What if we want particular songs for our wedding or event?
    I  usually have most songs that are requested, but if not I will make  every attempt to obtain songs that are special for you. If you have a  list of songs I will try to include as many of them as possible. I do  not use a pre-programmed format so I am very flexible. I adjust all  selections around your specifications, how your guests respond to the  music, and try to include as many requests as possible.
  • How long have you been a DJ and what kind of experience do you have?
    To  ensure the success of your event, an experienced DJ is a must. Since I  started my business in 1984, I have played at hundreds of events. I've  provided music for numerous weddings, anniversaries, class reunions,  elementary through college dances, corporate parties, civic events, New  Year's Eve events, country dances, birthday parties, and seniors'  dances. My wide range of experience helps me provide you with a special  event filled with lasting memories.
  • Who will actually be the DJ who plays our music; will YOU be my DJ?
    Many  of the large DJ companies have a large pool of DJ's that they assign to  jobs. At wedding shows you will meet their most experienced DJ's, but  that does not guarantee you will actually have that DJ. I am a single  system operator and I will be your DJ. I do not employ others or  delegate jobs to less experienced DJs. Being a DJ is an art form and I  provide a specialized service that cannot be duplicated.
  • We have a plan in mind for our reception. Can you work around that?
    Absolutely,  my goal is to provide you with a customized event. A consultation will  provide us with an opportunity to connect and discuss all the details  for your reception. We will cover what activities you want to include  and choose all your special songs. We will also discuss how your wedding  party will be introduced and the order of all activities. I will manage  the flow of events at your reception to ensure a smooth fun-filled  evening.
  • Do you take requests?
    I  have a large music library and your guests are welcome to make  requests. I make every reasonable attempt to honor as many requests as  possible. My extensive music collection allows me to supply most  requests. However, I cannot guarantee fulfilling every request.
  • We've  been to receptions where the music is too loud, the DJ talked too much  or there were gaps in the music. How do you prevent this?
    I  am volume sensitive. Background music should be in the background so  guests can enjoy their conversations. At events such as wedding  receptions there is often a wide variety of generations. I adjust the  volume to be sensitive to the guests and events as they unfold. Louder  is not necessarily better.  I limit my vocal involvement to the moments  where it is necessary to introduce people, encourage involvement or make  announcements. I am constantly cueing up the next songs to be ready for  that transition to create a continuous flow of entertainment.
  • What kind of music do you have for teen parties that is appropriate for school settings and fits parents' expectations?
    Young  people want to have a great time and worry that school and parent  restrictions are going to prevent this. Parents and schools worry about  the music available today. I balance those two conflicting views by  pre-screening songs for content, monitoring requests, and having edited  lyric selections available. The majority of the requests do not even  fall in that category. So parents, teachers and young people can relax  and enjoy themselves.
  • Are you professionally attired for our event?
    I  am professionally attired for every event. For formal occasions I wear a  tux. I try to match my attire to the event such as business casual,  casual, and dress for the occasion for special themes like country or  luaus
  • Do you charge for travel or setup time?
    I  do not charge for setup or travel time. You are paying for the time  that I play your music. A travel charge would only occur to offset  gasoline costs if there is a long distance involved such as over 100  miles. This is rarely involved since most of Northwest Ohio is within  this radius.
  • What  is included in your packages? Does it cost extra f we want dance  lighting, up-lighting, games, props, and for your set-up time?
    I  have a full light show and it is included in my fee. There is no  additional charge for the regular dance lights. I am now offering  UPLIGHTING  for your head table. There will be a small additional fee to  set these up. I do not charge any additional fees for the other  equipment I provide. I supply wireless microphones to make announcements  and toasts unrestricted by table locations. For anniversaries and  events centered around a time period I will have fun trivia available to  enhance the fun. There are no additional charges. No surprises. The fee  you will be quoted includes everything. You can purchase additional  time as needed. I do ask for a $100 deposit to secure the date and that  is applied directly toward your balance
  • I'm having my wedding ceremony outdoors and the reception is in a different location. Can you provide sound for both?
    Yes.  I have a second sound system available for a small additional fee. This  includes a lapel microphone for the person officiating your marriage. I  have a large selection of appropriate music for these occasions. I have  also played customer-provided cd's of musical accompaniment and a  microphone for the individual performing the vocals.
  • Do you carry back-up equipment for if you have a failure?
    Yes.  As an experienced DJ, I carry backup equipment for anything that could  possibly go wrong. I have replacement amplifiers, speakers, hard drives  and CD's to play when the power blinks.
  • Do you just play music or do you engage the guests and try to create a party atmosphere?
    I  am an interactive DJ. I select music that appeals to your guests to get  the party rolling. I also play games, do ice-breaking dances, use party  props to get the party started and involve your guests.
