Can I give you a Playlist? You can of course (by 1 week in advance), but we also have our own exclusive (we wrote it) Online Client System to help you plan your event online live 24/7, including our Music Choice System that you can use to make a playlist for your event, including selecting special songs needed (like a First Dance song on weddings).
What types of music do you have? We actually have and carry nearly all types/genres of music with us to every job, unlike many DJs who have just one or two. We have with us all the time... Pop, R&B, Oldies, Classic Rock, Hip-Hop, Country, Folk, Blues, Soul, Line Dance, Alternative, EDM, Gospel, Jazz, Latino, Cajun, Polka, Bluegrass, Cuban/Salsa, Indian/Bollywood, West African, Instrumental, Classical, Ballroom, Christian, Opera, Dixieland, Children's, Broadway, Ragtime, Funk, World, Reggae, Mexicana, Latin, Italian, Vocal, American Standards, Big Band, Rat Pack, along with the Top 100 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s, plus the overall Most Popular, and even more.
Do you play from YouTube? No. We are a professional company, and we legally purchase the music we carry. When you request something through our Online Client System we do not yet carry, we search commercial sites to purchase the song. As a part of one segment of the music industry, we believe in legally supporting the industry. We do not play from YouTube or other similar internet sites. We also do not play songs from others cellphones, pads, computers, usb drives, or devices of any kind through our system.
Do you need a Wi-Fi signal to play songs? No. Again, we are a professional company, and we legally purchase the music we carry. There are DJ's who need a Wi-Fi signal because they are playing music directly from online sources, be that YouTube or any other number of websites or services. They don't actually have the music you have requested "with them". We carry the actual song files of everything we play, and we have purchased all the commercial songs ourselves. The songs are actually with us, making internet access completely unnecessary. The songs on your list are even duplicated onto different devices in our system at your event for backup. Unlike some others, we are not subject to problems due to bad, interrupted, slow, or unreliable Wi-Fi signals. If a DJ tells you that you need a wedding/reception location with a good Wi-Fi connection, it likely means they don't actually have your songs and depend on playing from online sources via sometimes unreliable Wi-Fi. We have well over 12,000 purchased song files, the actual files, with us all the time.
Do you play Clean or Explicit versions of songs? Clean. As company policy, we will not play Explicit versions of songs. That includes... We will not play songs labeled Explicit for language, or songs that are inappropriate to an event due to content, regardless of who makes the request, unfortunately including the client. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we have thousands of other songs that can be played, including Clean versions of many songs (sometimes called radio edits) that clean up lyrics that would otherwise be considered Explicit. We also do not play songs from others cellphones, pads, computers, usb drives, or devices of any kind through our system.
Can I get lighting or other options without DJ/Music service? Yes. We are Mississippi DJ Services, but we know that our lighting in particular, along with many other options we offer are very popular. If you have a DJ already, or maybe a band is playing your event, or your uncle, or a friend, or whoever, you can still have Mississippi DJ Services for lighting and more. Just click the option for No DJ/Music, or one of our reathtaking packages, when doing your Instant Price Quote.
Can I have our initials or names shining on the wall? Yes. That is known as a Custom Gobo, and you may choose from several different looks which you can easily select right in our Online Client System as well. A Custom Gobo can be shown on a flat wall or light colored hard floor. (We'll bring the light to show it, then afterwards you get to keep the actual gobo!) The charge for a Custom Gobo is only $199 (plus tax). It takes time for them to be custom manufactured, so you must order at least 3 weeks before your event date.
What do I have to provide? All events must provide electrical power (15-20 amp clear circuit, 3-prong grounded outlet) within a maximum 15 feet from our setup location*. A tent or covered area for outdoor events should be available in case of rain. *Setup location is preferred to be near the dance floor when dancing is part of your event, or on the audience side of the room for all stage/band events.
Can you do outdoor events? Yes. Our Great Sound system can be heard great outdoors and can cover a HUGE area without a problem. Obviously remember that this is electrical equipment and so weather plays a part. Rain of any kind on the system, or the threat of bad weather, is not allowed, and is why our agreement states a tent be available on outdoor events. Also remember that electrical power must be within a few feet of our table and equipment, so make sure and check that an acceptable 3 prong grounded electrical plug-in is nearby where you want us to setup.
