Frequently Asked Questions
How many years has your company been in business and what is one way you differ from other DJ companies?
Expressway Music was founded by David Swirsky in July 1992. 2018 is our 26th year! Please read our reviews. Our Experience in DJ’ing once in a lifetime events (Weddings, Mitzvahs and Corporate) separates us from the rest. Because of the VERY recent changes in technology (Equipment became much more compact and the music much easier to access) thousands of people got into the DJ business. however the GREAT majority of these “DJ’s” have very limited experience in DJ’ing expensive weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and Corporate events. We have DJ’d hundreds to thousands of these extra special events. Even though we are located in Manhattan we KNOW that we have to leave for a Friday night wedding in NYC 4 hours early so weekend traffic doesn’t affect us. This is just one of the many, many reasons Experience Matters.
Another main reason our clients come back year after year is that they can get all of their entertainment needs from us…One Source. You are to busy to deal with multiple vendors and invoices. Let us handle it..we will take care of you completely.
What do you charge?
Because there are so many variables to each event our rate varies from event to event however our basic rate for up to 4 hours for a wedding is $1650(if we bring sound system) .Please call us at 212-953-9367, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our contact form with your unique details i.e. the times you want the dj?, where the event is taking place? Would you also like a quote on the other services we offer?(i.e lighting, live music, photo booth etc)
Can we meet with or talk to the DJ in advance?
Absolutely. We encourage it. Just let us know and we can arrange a phone, skype or in person meeting. We are very flexible and can arrange meetings around your schedule. You will always have your DJ’s contact information.
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes. Our policy is for up to 2 million dollars. We will provide your venue with a certificate of Insurance for your event.
We’ve decided to hire Expressway. What happens now?
We will e-mail you our standard agreement for you to sign and return to us with a deposit to hold the date. It’s straightforward and our fees are all inclusive. Our Event Manager, Charissa, whom has been with us for 10 years is your liaison for all agreements, payments etc.
