Frequently Asked Questions
Our top 6
How much do you charge?
Rates very depending on a number factors. There is no “one price fits all” policy. The price that you will be quoted is based on the type of event, size of hall, number of guests, package you choose, extras you order, date, etc etc. This is why we recommend that you fill out our INQUIRY FORM, so we have the necessary details to give you an accurate quote.
Why does the price vary according to number of people?
The number of guests attending gives us the exact piece of information we need to know to determine the type of, quantity, and size of equipment that will be required for your event. The amount of equipment and setup time is significantly different for an event for 100 people than for 800 people. As such the price will reflect that.
We have booked a hall that has in “in house” system- should we use it?
It depends on the hall. Some halls have policies where outside equipment is simply not permitted- in which case- you don’t have much choice. If no such policy exists- then we can, based on our experience, recommend how you should proceed. Really it depends on if it was installed correctly and if it will enhance your event. Generally speaking, we do recommend using in house systems.
How many years of experience do your DJ’s have?
Depending on the DJ/Entertainer you choose, from 5-15+ years.
Do you do this full time?
Yes. Empire Entertainment is a full time business. This is the only way that you can be assured, as a customer, that you will have the attention and dedication required for your event. Be wary of hobbyists and part-timers- you may save some money- but do you really want your event in the hands of a rookie?
What type of music do you play?
While we specialize in South Asian music, of course. We are unique in this market in that we can cater to almost any crowd.
Tips and suggestions that will help you when it comes to planning your day.
Don’t do your entrance tell all your guests have arrived and are seated.
There’s nothing worse then entering to a noisy, half settled, half-full hall. In most cases it is completely unrealistic to expect that all your guests will have arrived and are seated by 7pm even on a Sunday! Things usually have a way of balancing out by the end of the night anyway. Besides what’s the rush! Let your guests mingle and drink- TRUST ME it will make your party that much better!
Be sure to provide your DJ with a detailed itinerary at least a few days before your Wedding/Reception Day.
He will need that so he can follow along and be prepared. As well, this will give him the opportunity to offer you suggestions.
When making your itinerary BE EXACT!
If someone has a performance that is 6 mins then allot only 6 mins, not 15 mins, in your itinerary. I have seen many functions thrown all out of order because of this huge mistake. Same goes for speeches if you know that the person is only giving a toast- than allot 2 mins not 10 mins. It’s not only your agenda that you need to worry about, but the caterer may not be ready in time because you whipped through your program in 15 mins when you allotted 45. It looks ill planned.
Always do your first dance just BEFORE you want to start the party.
Do not do it after you just enter unless you have a second slow dance planned for later. Slow dances are very important as they provide a perfect transition to start the party.
