Frequently asked questions..
Will the DJ arrive on time and play til the agreed time
Yes I will, a contract is final, and being late is unprofessional. The contract I use is legally binding for both parties.
Enquiries, bookings and cancellations policy.
Between the initial enquiry and confirmed booking I require an agreed deposit to be paid.
I keep the date open for 14 days, then if no deposit is received I close the booking.
Will DJ: Gavin Vaclavik play the songs I / we want ?.
I bring with me an ever expanding library of songs and am more than happy to play requests on the night.
It goes without saying that it's your night and your choice, but if the songs chosen are not working for the audience I will politely ask if I can try some ideas of my own. Also if you request "don't play _____", and people ask for it, I will ask you what you think, and I will only play it if you then tell me in person !
once you have made your booking, you may contact me as often as you like... I am your DJ from the moment you book me !

If you hire anyone to work with children, you should always make sure they are safe, i have a clean criminal record history check, please ask.
What will happen if the equipment fails ?
In the unlikely event of this happening, I carry everything in duplicate, two laptops, the speakers are "active" (which means each has it's own built in amp), and all leads are duplicated. The lighting is LED, so no lamps to change.
Will i let anyone else use his equipment ?
