Don’t Stop the Music! Inc. is a company built of DJs and MC Entertainers, NOT a booking agency!  With well over 29 years of experience in the NY Tri-State area, Don’t Stop the Music! Inc. is proud to answer YES to all nine of the questions below:


It is very important to confirm your booking in writing. Terms should be clearly defined to avoid future problems. We use written agreements.

Be confident that the DJ you hire will show up for your event! Insurance will give security and protection to you and your guests, as well as the DJ and his expensive gear!

Even professional audio equipment can fail on occasion, don't let this put an early end to your event. Make sure there is backup equipment and be sure there is a backup DJ/MC should an emergency or case of illness occur.

There is a BIG difference between home audio and professional road-worthy equipment. The equipment a DJ uses should be built to go on the road each and every day!

Many DJ's are of the opinion that they know what music is best for their audience and will not take requests. The DJ should listen to requests and play them whenever appropriate.

It is important that your entertainer look the part by dressing formal or semi-formal, according to your preference. Themed events and picnics require different attire.

The biggest concern voiced by prospective clients is the volume level of the music. A real professional DJ knows to keep the music at a level appropriate for the guests, especially during cocktails and the dinner hour.

Most events involve more than playing music. It is important to have a DJ who is capable of playing the music, handling all of the announcements and help coordinate the affair.

A professional DJ is aware that they can't possibly know every aspect of music and entertainment for your event. Your input and suggestions should always be accepted!
