FAQ's

Do you offer a written agreement?

Absolutely. It is in our best interest to protect both parties interests on the night. The Booking Agreement provided to both the Disc Jockey and Client outlines both what is expected of each other on the night, and also an idea of the standards that Marvel Functions looks to maintain.

Can we provide a ‘Do Not Play’ List?

Absolutely! If there are any songs you would desperately like to avoid on your special day, please converse with your Entertainment Planner or DJ in advance, and they'll make sure to omit it on the evening.

Can we provide a list of songs or artists we would like played?

We fully understand that at a wedding, birthday party or similar event that it’s ultimately your day. Any tracks you request (assuming we can obtain them online) will be added into your DJ’s music library for the evening.

Is it possible to meet our Wedding DJ in advance?

Absolutely! To arrange a meeting with your DJ, simply speak with your Entertainment Planner to arrange a meeting at your earlist convenience!

Will you perform at more than one event on the day?

Unlike many other agencies, Marvel Functions strictly enforces a “One Gig Per Day” policy (per DJ). If a DJ performs at more than one event on any given day, they’re likely to run low on energy and motivation towards the climax of the event – which is the last thing you want when the dancefloor’s rocking!

Has my DJ played at my chosen venue before?

Quite possibly! Our DJ's have played all over the UK (and some even further afar), so there's a reasonable chance they may have played at your venue in the past. If this isn't the case, they'll be happy to arrange a visit in advance at both parties' convenience. Speak to your Entertainment Planner for more information.

Do you act as the emcee on the evening/make announcements when requested?

Yes – our DJ’s are more than happy to make announcements for you! All of our Disc Jockeys are hand picked for their charisma as well as their skill on the decks – and are thus happy to be as prominent (or quiet if preferred) on the microphone as you like!

What happens if my DJ can’t make it on the day?

Marvel Functions offers a "Fully Guaranteed Policy" for all bookings. This means that your DJ, Sound System and Music on the night will always be backed up. We are the only agency in the area to offer this, so you can rest assured your party will keep rocking!

Can we visit our DJ at another event?

Unfortunately we cannot invite clients to visit our DJ’s at other functions. To invite anyone to another person’s wedding or birthday party would unfortunately be highly unprofessional, and damage the reputation of all involved. We are usually able to provide recent videos of the relevant DJ if so desired. We are occasionally available for visits at Wedding Fairs however - be sure to contact us to find out where we'll be making our next appearance.

Can our guests make requests?

Of course! The whole point of an event is for your guests to enjoy themselves – and if they have any requests that are in fitting with the night – your DJ will be most happy to play them.

What time will my DJ arrive to set up?

As a standard – we usually invite all of our DJ’s to arrive between 1.5-2 Hours before the start of their performance. If you would like them to arrive and set up earlier in the day (perhaps before the meal, speeches etc) then this can also be arranged!

What will the DJ wear?

Marvel Functions DJ's ooze Style and Class as a basic rule. Our DJ's will always perform in a full suit unless you require any alternative arrangement.

How much of a deposit is required?

A standard deposit of 20% is required to hold a booking with us.

If we decide on the night to extend the evening’s activities, will our DJ be understanding?

Absolutely. All of our DJ’s are trained to know that sometimes you just won’t want the party to stop, and will be attentive to your needs. Rates are negotiable, but it’s extremely rare that a DJ of ours will not extend the evening when requested. Be sure to speak with the venue before confirming any additional performance hours - as you may have to consider local licensing laws. Or alternatively, speak with your Entertainment Planner in advance, and they'll converse with the venue in advance for you.

Are you insured?

All of our DJ’s have full Public Liability Insurance, fully PAT Tested Equipment and a Pro Dub License.

Will the DJ need a break?

One of the main advantages of booking a DJ over a band is that they won’t need to take breaks. The only instance a DJ will take a break is for a swift bathroom break, during background music at the start of a night, or to make time for any other entertainment on the evening (Band, Comedian etc).

Can you provide a wireless microphone?

All of our DJ’s are more than happy to provide a wireless microphone that you may use for speeches, toasts etc.

Will you shamelessly promote at my event?

Absolutely not. Marvel Functions are 100% against any advertisement of any sort. All of our DJ’s are strictly forbidden from providing any banners or forms of advertisement that will compromise the image of your event in any way. Our DJ’s will provide a business card only when requested to.
