Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Will you be my DJ, or will it be someone else?
A. Unless otherwise specified, I will be the DJ for all events. Exceptions to this are stated in the contract. A 'standby' will be used if something happens that is out my control, including being in the hospital, being homebound due to an accident/illness, or the death of a close family member.

3) A $100 nonrefundable deposit is due upon signing the agreement. Deposit amounts are deducted from the total cost of the event.
4) The balance is due five days prior to the event.
5) Any and all information or details must be finalized three days preceding the event.

Q. What type of attire do you wear for special events such as weddings or anniversary parties?
A. For those type of events, as well as other related functions, I wear formal attire, such as a tuxedo, unless other specifications are requested by the client(s). For events such as birthday parties, class reunions, and pool parties, I wear casual attire.

Q. What age groups do you perform for?
A. I perform for all age groups.

Q. What type of music do you play?
A. I play a variety of music based on the client's discretion.

Q. Do you take requests?
A. Yes, always.

Q. What type of equipment do you use and do you carry backup equipment?
A. I keep quality equipment such as Numark, Crown, Cerwin-Vega, Peavey, American DJ, and other top products. We always carry backup equipment.

Q. Do you meet with your clients prior to the event?
A. When possible; however, due to my large coverage area, it can be difficult to arrange this. For example, if you're in New York, but your event will be in Florida, it won't be possible to meet up beforehand. Also, I typically cannot meet with people residing more than 125 miles outside of the Jacksonville or Daytona Beach areas. Throughout the decades that I've been doing this, I've found that website, email, and phone communication is very effective for pre-event communication.

Q. How many hours do you normally perform? If asked to continue for a longer period of time, what is the fee?
A. Two to four hours is the normal performance time. Any additional time costs $100 per hour.

Q. What methods of payment do you accept?
A. I accept personal checks, money orders, credit cards, and cash. If a client plans to pay the balance of the event by check, it must be paid ten days prior to the event. Please make checks payable to Raulerson DJ Services. If paying by cash, the balance is due five days prior to the event. Please note: any and all deposits are nonrefundable.

Q. What is the maximum number of songs played per hour?
A. Twenty songs can be played with no interruptions.
