Here are some frequently asked questions that may be helpful.
How long have you been a DJ?
The owner DJ Jason Lee has nearly 20 years experience in the DJ industry. The other DJs of Absolute Best have 5-15 years of experience themselves with various music backgrounds currently working in clubs, on the radio and festivals.
Does quality differ between the owner DJ Jason Lee and the other DJs available?
Our DJs are not hired by application but asked to join our expert team of DJ entertainers. They are chosen because of their outgoing personality, demonstrated reliability, musical knowledge and DJ skills. No matter who you get when booking your event or wedding you are sure to have a highly qualified DJ at your service who will guarantee a great time!
Can I choose which DJ I get?
As long as the requested DJ is available for your date you absolutely can request a specific DJ for your wedding or event. Unless specifically requested your DJ is assigned at booking and will be in touch with you throughout the planning process leading up to your wedding to help and go over any information.
What kind of equipment do you use?
Absolute Best DJ Service uses only the top model equipment from the most respected brands. Our speakers are JBL PRX715 which provide a clean sound at any volume with plenty of power for events large and small. Our DJs use either the Pioneer DDJ-SX, their flagship digital controller, or the Denon DN-HC5000, another top of the line digital controller used when floorspace is in high demand. We use a combination of high powered LED lighting fixtures from Chauvet and American DJ.
Once I have decided on my services needed, how do I book my date?
