How does Impulse Entertainment stand out from the rest?
This is a great question to ask considering the fact that there are so many different DJs to choose from. Depending on the type of your event, you may be stressed out and have a lot on your plate. We are here to help you! Once we set up a consultation meeting and discuss your event, you can leave the stressing out to us! We will take care of everything necessary to make your event run as smoothly as possible.
Also, we like to show genuine care and support along with a great attitude and a high energy profile to keep you and your guests entertained throughout your entire event. When it is all said and done the newest equipment can only go so far. What you really pay for is a DJ that knows you and what you want and can read your crowd to keep them on the dance floor all night. We are here to listen to you and give you exactly what you want!
Finally, we will be 100% “real” with you. We will not sugar coat anything and make sure that you understand the truth about everything that we will do for you. You can expect NOTHING to be hidden from you at any time. After all, you’re paying for a service and expect the best. This is what we strive to bring to you!
Are you insured?
Yes! We are covered up to $1,000,000 for any liability incident. This means that you, your guests, and your venue are covered! If your venue requires vendor insurance, please make sure to let us know and we’ll do the rest!
What are your areas of service?
Currently, we serve Chicago’s north, west, and south suburbs. However, we are not opposed to traveling further for events. We must note that if your event is out of our service area, there will be an increase in price for travel costs.
Are you willing to take requests?
Most definitely! — But this is up to you. If you want your guests to request songs, we will take requests. If you want us to honor a specific playlist we will do that too! By taking requests, your guests can get involved in your event and we can have some fun and interact with them as well!
What is your music selection like?
With over 90,000 songs in our online database, we are sure to have the music you want! If we don’t have it, we get it for you at no extra cost. Also, our songs are downloaded at the highest quality possible (and legally) to ensure you and your guests are experience a crisp, clear sound.
Do you offer radio edited/clean music?
We understand that many events (especially weddings) have guests from the ages of 2 to 92! The last thing we want to do is offend anyone with inappropriate lyrics. We make sure that all of our music (even today’s popular songs) is edited to please everyone. In fact, that is all we will play unless you request otherwise at a meeting. Furthermore, we use our best judgement when there are younger people in the crowd to make it a fun-filled night for everyone.
Do you offer uplighting?
Yes! This is something that we can provide you. You are able to purchase up to 24 fixtures with the color of your choice to accent room architecture, such as pillars or archways, and give your event space that awesome ambience that would be lost without it! Let us know if this is an option you would like explore and we can provide you with additional information and pricing.
Can we see you in action before our event?
If you happened to have attended a wedding that we have performed at, or will be attending one in the future, you will be able to see us in action. Unfortunately, however, we do not invite potential clients to other events. What we can offer you is in-depth information and helpful tips about how we are able to run your event and make sure everything flows smoothly via website articles, videos or by meeting with us in person. Also, we’d love to address any questions, comments or concerns you may have! Ultimately, we want to make sure you trust us 100% with making sure your event is exactly the way you want it!
What time will you arrive before my event?
We always err on the side of caution; therefore, for your wedding or a wedding-sized event, we usually like to arrive at least 2 hours before the start of cocktail hour. For smaller events, we arrive at the event location at least 1 hour prior to start. Whatever your event is, we always coordinate with the event planner the week of to make everything will run smoothly. If we need to arrive even earlier we will do that too! It’s always better to be early than late!
What is included in a wedding consultation?
A wedding consultation is a great way for you to get to know us and us to get to know you! We believe that these meetings are crucial when planning your wedding reception. Email only goes so far, and we are genuinely excited to meet with you face to face to make sure that you feel 100% comfortable with us.
What are you looking for in your DJ? How do you envision your wedding reception? What do you want your guests doing? What is the perfect atmosphere for your wedding night? How can we incorporate all of your requests? All of these questions and more will be answered during your consultation.
Will you mash together or beatmix music at my event?
Absolutely! Beatmixing songs together (like you would hear a radio DJ do), ensures that there aren’t many pauses between songs and will keep you and your guests on the dance floor all night long without having to stop dancing and wait for the next song to start up again. We will make sure to keep the atmosphere fun and energetic!
