FAQ'S

WHAT KIND OF SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?

We offer entertainment services for all types of events, including weddings, proms, birthdays and corporate gatherings. DJ’s, uplighting, monogram gobo projection, karaoke are just a few of the things we can offer. But weddings are our favorite! :)


WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

Our equipment is professional grade and state-of-the-art, ensuring reliable service and top-notch presentation for your event.


DO YOU HAVE A BACKUP PLAN IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY?

Yes! We always have backup equipment and on-call staff should anything go wrong.


ARE YOU LICENSED & INSURED?

Yes. J&B is licensed as required by the state of Kentucky and carries liability insurance to protect you, your guest and our team should anything happen.


HOW SOON SHOULD I BOOK MY ENTERTAINMENT?

Generally, we recommend booking 6 months to 1 year prior to your event date as popular services and event days will sell out – particularly during peak event season (Apr – June & Sept – Oct). We will always work hard to accommodate last minute requests as well as suggest alternative services to bring your vision to life.


WHAT’S BETTER - LIVE MUSIC OR A DJ?

It depends on what kind of vibe you want to set! Consider the genre of music first. If you are trying to go the more guitar and instrument route, perhaps a band might be best. Still, DJ’s offer the most variety, the most familiar version of a song, and better still, the most value and space saving set-up.


COULDN’T I JUST DJ ON MY OWN?

Sure but then you have a lot more things to worry about and manage on event day. You will enjoy your wedding or event a lot more if you can relax and enjoy the day as a guest. Professional DJ’s will manage the flow of your event (making announcements and introducing the bridal party). They are also able read a crowd and respond to keep your dance floor full – something an IPod or automated software simply can’t do.


WHAT ABOUT SONG REQUESTS? HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT TO PLAY?

We collaborate with all our couples and clients on music for your event, working from the largest music database in Kentucky. During the planning process, you will have access to our online planning portal that gives you complete control of what the DJ should (and should NOT play). And if you can’t find the song in our library we will search high and low for it elsewhere.


CAN THE DJ PLAY EXTRA TIME IF I NEED IT?

Absolutely. Once we confirm that your venue and other vendors can accommodate a later end time for your event, we happy to keep the party going! Your DJ can discuss rates for any extra time in advance or the night of your event.


DO WE HAVE TO FEED THE DJ?

Nope. Our DJ’s eat off-site before your scheduled event. Of course, if there is extra wedding cake…


SHOULD WE TIP THE DJ?

This is completely up to you. Gratuity is not included for the DJ in our agreement. If you feel they did a fantastic job for you, 10 – 20% is a typical amount to tip.
