We have entertained hundreds of Weddings, Sweet 16's, Birthday's,
Reunions, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Corporate Event's, School functions and much, much more...
Booking Your Event
Some people think that booking the entertainment is the last thing you have to worry about.
The entertainment is the most important part of your affair.
It is very important to book the DJ as early as possible as dates fill up very fast. (Especially in the spring and summer months.)
Once a contract is signed and a retainer fee is collected, the date is considered locked.
You will ALWAYS know who your DJ/Entertainer will be before signing the contract.
PLEASE NOTE: A backup DJ will be appointed in an event of an emergency
Summer time is a busy time of year for outdoor events (i.e Block Parties, House Parties and Picnics)
but sometime mother nature doesn't always cooperate with us.
We do have protection against a small passing shower or drizzle.
In the event of a thunderstorm, we will break down the system and wait out the storm.
We do try to make up the time at the end if possible.
Alternative Sounds requires a 30%
retainer fee for canceled events due to a wash out, providing there is a rain
For events without a rain date, we would require a 50% retainer fee.
Alternative Sounds will entertain any event throughout Long Island and the New York Tri-State area.
However, extra fees may apply for events over 50 Miles from our office or over any bridges outside of Long Island.
Setting Up / Sound
One of the most important aspects to our entertainment.
Timing is very important and we believe in having music playing before the very first guest arrives.
Normally we will arrive approximately 1 hour before your event starts.
1 hour gives us enough time to set up and sound check the system so that everything looks and sounds great in time for your event to start.
We usually contact the hall the week of the event to find out when would be the earliest time we can get into the room to set up.
NOTE: A small fee will apply for any event not on the main level. A
larger fee may apply if there are no elevators and we have to use the stairs. If
your event is not on the main level, we will arrive to set up at least 90
minutes prior to your event.
FYI: Having an event on the main level will save you money with any vendor you use.
A "Suggestion Song List" is greatly appreciated but not always necessary.
Remember: you want your guests to have a great time. That's why you are hiring us.
We love suggestions and requests during the event so anyone should feel free to come up and let us know what they would like to hear.
For events that are focused on the Guest(s) of honor, We recommend a "Must Play List" of their top 5-10 Favorite songs.
(I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but you can only play so many songs in a 4 hour event.)
A 15% Retainer Fee is required when booking your date. The remaining balance is due the day of your event. (typically at the end of your affair)
We Accept Master card, Visa, Discover and American Express Cards as well as Pay Pal, a Personal check or Cash
