FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What makes DJ Prashant different from other DJ‘s?

I encourages clients to let me assist them in creating an experience that all the guests will enjoy. This begins by meeting with customers and determining their needs. Based on the customer needs I will recommend a package that will meet those needs. Once the event is booked, my clients select their music, plan the event, and set the timeline. The next step is to meet and ensure that everyone is on the same page.

What geographical area do you serve?

I mainly perform events in the Chicago area. I have performed events as far away as Florida to the south and New York to the north. I typically charge an additional fee for events over 30 miles from my recording studio in Hoffman Estates, Il. The additional charge is dependent on the distance required. This charge will be included in the quote that I provide you if you have selected your venue or venue city before booking my services.

When do I need to book your services?

Since I can only perform a certain number events on any given day, it is recommended that you book with me as soon as possible. The longer you wait the more competition there is for your date. However, if you are trying to plan an event with short lead-time please call me, as I will try to do everything possible to accommodate your request.  I have performed events where I was booked over a year in advance as well as only a few hours before.

I have decided to book with you now what do I need to do?

Once you have made the decision to book with me you need to sign my DJ contract. You can print out the contract from this website. Send a signed copy of the agreement and the requested deposit back to me and your date is secure.

What is included in your price?  Why don't you publish your price on your website?


My policy is to discuss my services with customers prior to pricing. This allows me to present a package that will meet your needs. Everyone has different expectations when booking entertainment for their event. Once I know what you are looking for I can let you know if I am equipped to handle your requirements. There are many options to choose from including the size of sound systems, location of systems, extended lighting, length of contract, etc. and the combination of these will determine your individual package and associated cost.

What should I look for when hiring a DJ for my event?

Selecting the right DJ for your event is important. A DJ can help create the tone that you wish to set. I have several packages designed to provide entertainment options for different tastes and different budgets.

When will you arrive at my event?

I arrive about one hour prior to the event start time. Although my system can be set up in less than 20 minutes, I like to allow plenty of time to test all components and make adjustments for optimal sound performance at your venue. Under most circumstances, there is no additional charge for setup and tear down time. The time that you book me for is 100% performance time.

I will need assistance with selecting the music and timing of events. Can you help?

Anyone who books with me has access to view my whole music collection.  These tools can help anyone get started with their event. I am also available by phone or in person to discuss your ideas and offer suggestions. Once you have booked with me feel free to contact me to assist with even the smallest detail.

Can we provide you with our own personal CDs to play at our event?

I am always willing to play selections from your personal music collection. I do ask that you provide those CDs to the me at least one week prior to the event. I will test the CDs to ensure that the requested songs plays correctly and that I will be able to get familiar with the music to determine the best way to fit it with your other music selections.

Can we see you perform live?

I meet with potential clients on an appointment basis only. I am available most days and evenings during the week. I also perform at various bridals show, DJ showcases, and other events that you are more than welcome to attend. At these events I am completely focused on answering questions of potential clients.

What will you wear to the event?

I will normally wear a suit to formal events at no additional cost to you. For more casual events, I will accommodate your required dress code from a suit and tie to a shirt and pants. It is completely your call!

Will you make any announcements that I need?

I am a seasoned professionals capable of adapting my natural style to your needs. Whether you want me to be outgoing and energetic keeping the activities on track and the guests informed or a low-key DJ playing great music; it is completely your choice. If you are looking for some major crowd interaction consider booking me.

Do you take requests from my guests?

That is completely up to you. I will welcome all requests from your guests if that is your choice. When you complete your music request list you are able to select music that you DO NOT want played. If I get a request for a song that is on your DO NOT play list then I can handle this very diplomatically without upsetting any of your guests.

What kind of music will you play during cocktails and dinner?

I typically play more mellow music during this time: Soft Hindi instrumentals and love songs. I keep the volume down low so your guests can talk to each other comfortably. The ultimate choice however is up to you. I will honor your music requests during the entire event.

Am I required to include you in my meal count?

At most events that I perform where meals are served the vendors (DJ, photographer, videographer, etc) are generally provided with a meal.

Should I tip you?

Feel free to tip me if you wish. I will accept it as the utmost compliment. While a tip is not expected, it is always appreciated.
