Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Pick My Own DJ?
Yes AND No. Yes, we will honor any special request for a specific DJ IF he/she has not already been requested. If the DJ is a team leader, he/she must remain available for team jobs. If a team job isn't booked by the week of your reception, that DJ then will go to the reception that requested him/her first. However, no matter which DJ you get, you are going to have a DJ that has been trained in the art of reading your guests and motivating them with a selection of the most recognizable music around.
What will my DJ be wearing?
Our disc jockeys and entertainers standard dress code is Tuxedo. If you do not require a tux, our DJ will then dress accordingly to your reception / party. Whether they be in suit & tie, dress casual or casual, our DJ's exhibit professional taste. You will never see one of our DJ's in jeans or t-shirts (with the exception of sock hops or Halloween when costume is required).
Do your DJs take breaks?
No! Our DJs spin non-stop music from the arrival of the first guest to the last song of the night. If a restroom break is needed, they will take it during a long song, but only if absolutely necessary.
How will your DJ interact with my guests?
Our DJs are trained to speak to your guests only when necessary. We are not like "radio jocks" that give bios on every song. We get your guests involved in the song. Whether it's with a specific dance, having them sing a chorus or just having them clap along. Our sole purpose is to get the party started and keep it going. When guests need an extra push, our DJs are trained to do it with class and style, NEVER in an obnoxious or obtrusive way.
What if a song we want to hear is not on your list?
We carry over 8000 of the most popular songs in the field and have over 150,000 selections in our studio that we can pick from to send to your reception. If you happen to have a favorite album, soundtrack or live album cut that we don't carry and have the CD, we would be happy to play it for you.
Do your DJs honor requests?
ONLY if you would like us to. And if you want us to, but would like to regulate what types of music can or can't be played, we can do that as well. The Music Machine DJ's are the most flexible when it comes to your music.
Will your DJ drink any alcohol at my reception?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! This is a very strict guideline with Frankie Carll Productions. Our DJ's are there to do a job that requires maximum concentration and utmost professionalism. Alcohol does not fit into that equation one bit.
Do your DJs smoke behind the DJ booth?
NO! Another strict guideline with our DJs. Of the many we employ, there are 1 or 2 that do have a smoking habit. They have been instructed to do so before or after the reception NOT DURING.
Should we tip our DJ?
Tips are never solicited, required or expected. There are some that would say that it is etiquette to tip all of your hired services. However, in today's economy, we realize that it is not always possible. We charge a reasonable amount for our service and pay our DJs well. They are paid to do a great job for you. However, if you feel that your DJ went above and beyond the call of duty, did an outstanding job and you have the means & desire to give them a tip, it would be greatly appreciated and absolutely accepted.
We were at a wedding once where the DJ sang to everybody during dinner. Do your DJs do that?
No. DJs play prerecorded music and are not supposed to sing. We are a professional entertainment service that offers Bands as well as DJs. If you want someone to sing at your reception, we would be happy to talk to you about either of our two bands.
The last reception we were at the DJ was so loud during cocktail hour that we could even speak to friends and family. Is there anyway our DJ can play quiet at these times?
Our DJs are trained to play cocktail and dinner music at a level that is pleasing to your guests, so that they can enjoy good music and conversation as well. They are instructed that if they cannot here a murmur of voices from your guests, they are too loud.
Can I speak with the DJ before the reception?
There are companies that would say you need to do this and that if you cannot, the company you are working with isn't legitimate or sub-contracts out to the cheapest available DJ on your date. That could not be further from the truth and usually those companies are small, one or two people operations. Frankie Carll Productions has been in business for over 20 years. We pride ourselves in delivering quality entertainers to any occasion. The DJs that we employ work for our company only and with our equipment. We own and operate ten DJ systems. The professionals you see on our "Meet the DJ" page and in our DJ Video have been professional jocks for years. Not one of them regards this as a fly-by-night, part time fling. Each one respects the fact that this is someone's once in a lifetime event. Now even though Frankie Carll Productions is a full time operation, employing over 15 people total, the DJs we employ have full time careers in other fields. This does not allow them the time between work and family to meet all of the clients whom they will work for in the field. The office staff at Frankie Carll Productions consists of the owners and the head of the DJ department. They work through all of your details and relay them thoroughly to your DJ. We guarantee that no matter which DJ you have, you WILL be serviced by a professional DJ from the area's most elite entertainment service.
Do you have backup equipment and DJs?
Yes. Every DJ carries spare equipment with them and has access to our shop where we have literally hundreds of pieces of backup equipment available. We have contingency numbers to call in an emergency and perform regular maintenance and upkeep on our systems. While we have 10 systems available on any given day, we only book nine so that we have a person to turn to in the event of a crisis.
How much in advance should I book a DJ?
We are often booking dates up to 2 years in advance. The better the company, the more in demand they are. Several dates a year (usually in June and October) sell out very quickly because they are optimum dates. You should consider booking a DJ from Frankie Carll Productions no less then 12 months in advance. However, because we have 10 systems available, we often times have availability when other companies do not. This means that even some of the most popular dates may still be available with us.
Are you insured?
We carry the maximum allowable insurance for liability allowed. Several catering halls now require this of performers before they can play at a function. We are fully insured to $1,000,000.
Are you part time or full time?
Frankie Carll Productions' sole business is entertainment and video. We live and work to make each and every job we do a success, not only for us, but also for our clients. Our office is open daily during the week to answer your questions and assist our clients. We are a full time operation whose sole purpose is to serve you.
Is set up additional charge?
No. Even though our DJs arrive at a party approximately an hour before, we incur the cost of set up in our price. No additional fees will be added - even tax is included.
Do your DJ's get the party moving?
Our DJs use the hottest songs and most recognizable music to get your guests on the floor. In the event that a little push is needed, each DJ has been taught the "tricks of the trade" and should be able to motivate your guests. With all the music, tricks and gimmicks available, sometimes we encounter guests that just won't move. But we assure you, every DJ we employ will try their best and not stop trying all night long.
What do you mean by reading a crowd?
Reading a crowd is nothing more than judging the eras or genres of music that they will enjoy. We do this first by simply looking at your guests as a whole to see what age groups are represented. After doing this, we go through a variety of music to see what works the best for your particular party. This doesn't mean that that's all you'll hear the rest of the night, but if it works, we'll use a lot more of it.

Evening appointments are available for your convenience to discuss your event!
Why Video? The Answer is The Day Flies By!
Before the wedding some people feel as though they don't need a wedding video the reasons I most often hear is "I already have a photographer." or "It's too expensive." Another that I often hear is "I don't want someone bothering my guests." With a professional video company you won't hear this! What most Brides and Grooms don't realize is how much they miss the day of their wedding. Most brides and grooms will miss 75% of what happened the day of their wedding and most Brides and Grooms don't believe this before their wedding. Whether it was because you were at a table talking to family, outside for pictures, or just freshening up, the day flies by. A good videographer will focus on many of the things that you would otherwise never know happened.
Video gains its value down the road. Will you watch your video everyday? Probably not. But, in 5, 10 years after the wedding, when most of the memories have faded, that's when you look back and are glad you got a video. Some people think that pictures are enough. Yes, they are huge part of the day. But having the video along with the pictures adds a whole new dimension and level of emotion. You can see the tear in your father's eye as you do your father/daughter dance. You can laugh as you listen to the best man toast. Imagine how interesting it would be for your children to watch your wedding with crystal clear video, perfect sound, and seamless transitions. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. If that's true, then I believe that a video is worth a thousand pictures.
