Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve been in business since 1996.  Porta Party DJ’s started out as a “one-man show”, but we quickly became so popular that we needed to hire more DJ’s.  We are a medium-sized DJ company which means we don’t have 40+ systems going out every weekend night, but we also aren’t just a “one-man show” anymore.  All of our DJs are VERY experienced.

ALL of our DJ’s have a minimum of 15 years in the business DJing wedding receptions, private parties, corporate events and nightclubs/bars.

Typically, we wear a nice suit and tie.  However, sometimes an event is a black tie affair, so we wear a tuxedo.  And, sometimes an event is less formal and we may wear nice slacks/pants and a polo or button down.  We NEVER wear faded/ripped jeans or show up in inappropriate attire.

Of course!  We are professional DJ’s and MC’s, so we are very good at this.

Yes!  However, since we are the professionals, we usually have a great idea of the format for your event, but we absolutely encourage our clients to provide us with a list of songs and/or artists that are “MUST PLAY” and “MUST NOT PLAY” for your party.  Our music library is constantly updating, and with the internet/YouTube/ITunes/etc., there hasn’t been a song yet that we couldn’t get for an event.

Sure, but we typically like to have any special requests ahead of time so we can make sure they are able to be played on our laptop.

Yes, we have many references available upon request.

Most of the time, this is perfectly fine to drop in and check us out at an event.  Of course, if it’s a public event, it’s never a problem, but sometimes we’ve run across a bride/groom that weren’t OK with others stopping in to see the DJ.  That’s something we for sure can work out to make happen if you wish.

Yes, I have a $1,000,000 liability policy.

We typically like to arrive on site about one hour before we are supposed to start the music.  Sometimes, we get there earlier if it’s a venue we’ve never played before.

Simply send us an email to or call 314-283-7871 to get the ball rolling.  We will need to know the date of your event, the start/end time of your event, event location and approximate number of guests.  Once we have that, we can generate a bid for you and if accepted, we will email a contract for your party.

We require a $500 deposit (non-refundable retainer) that will hold your date.  The remaining balance is due 14 days prior to your event.

That is completely up to you.  If you feel the DJ did an exceptional job and helped make your event a success and you want to show your appreciation with a tip, go ahead and make the DJ happy.
