DO YOU HAVE THIS SONG?
Short answer: YES! Longer answer: We have well over 350,000 audio tracks stored on our DJ computers that span quite a few decades, going back to at least the 1940s, if not further. Obviously, there are more selections as you get closer to today, but there you are. In the event that we don't have a song you're looking for, we have subscriptions to Internet repositories that have even more music, which covers many of the oldies and all of the current hits. There's an unspoken game we like to play at our events called "Stump the DJ," where someone tries to throw us a curveball with an esoteric or unknown song. To-date, we have always found what we have been asked to play.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
Well, that depends on the event, how far away it is, how long you want us for, and how much we have to prepare or plan for it. Weddings are complicated events that must go off without a hitch on the first try; there are no do-overs for your Special Day, and as such, they'll cost more. Birthday Parties, Anniversaries, Reunions and the like are just as special but more casual events with fewer requirements beyond just having fun, so they cost less. Events at bars are even less complicated given that they're usually background fillers for the patrons who are there just to have a good time. These are our cheapest events, but that doesn't mean that we don't bring our A-Game to them. Please visit the GET A QUOTE page to review our packages and request a no-obligation quote.
WHY NO FLAT-RATE OR PER-HOUR FEES?
Actually, our rates are exactly that. Unlike some companies that might charge you a certain amount after assessing how much they think you can afford, our pricing is really quite simple. There are different rates charged based on the event, however, because of the amount of time, preparation and involvement we need to put in for different event types. As noted earlier, weddings cost the most simply because we'll put in a lot of time working with you to prepare for the big day and do everything we can to make sure your event goes off without issue. Weddings being what they are typically need a few months of preparation. Mid-level events require less preparation, other than maybe making sure a handful songs that are "must-plays" are available, and can usually be planned as quickly as a couple weeks in advance. Bar events such as a "Karaoke Night" require the least amount of preparation and almost always include fewer, if any, lights than other events (usually due to space limitations) - heck, if we're available, we can pull off a bar event with as little as a day's notice! Select events such as School Dances and Scouting Events are given discounts simply because the kids are usually responsible for raising the money, and we'd rather they had a great time with us than a mediocre event with a less-qualified or cheap service.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN YOUR FEES?
Us, our library of music, our Internet music respositories, an excellent sound system and computer-controlled club-style party lighting. The amount of lighting and number of speakers depends on the venue, but there's no price difference for the use of additional equipment. If you want more, there's a small fee for the use the bubble and fog machines to cover the clean-up and maintenance and the cost of the solution used in them. There's also add-on fees for Karaoke (except at bar events) and for video projection. For events beyond 75 miles distance of LaCrosse KS, there's also a fuel surcharge based on the then-current IRS reimbursement schedule.
WHO WILL BE THE DJ AT MY EVENT?
Easy! It'll be Kehvan with backup by Nathan. We are the co-owners of KZNC Party DJs, we named the company after us, and we don't have any other employees at this time. When you book with us, you're booking with US, not some megacorp where you never quite know who or what you're getting until the day of your event. You deal with us, meet and get to know us, and get us at your event. Simple as that. On the extremely rare occasion that Nathan and I are not available, we do have a substitute DJ we'll put in to cover us, but unless it's an emergency, you will get plenty of time to meet with this DJ as well. You'll still get the same experience, though.
CAN I SEE HOW YOU PERFORM AT ONE OF YOUR EVENTS?
Absolutely, if it's a public event such as a bar event, Relay for Life or other similar event. If you're asking to basically drop in on one of our weddings to see how we do things, then no, you may not unless you're specifically invited by the couple. We understand that you'd like to get a feel for how we do things, but ask yourself how you'd feel if we let potential clients drop by your wedding reception uninvited by you? You'd probably not like that, so we're not going to allow you to do that to someone else. The next best thing would be to visit our VIDEOS page to watch a few (or all) of the videos we've taken at past events.
SOUNDS GREAT! CAN I BOOK YOU?
If we're available, absolutely! Check the calendar seen on most pages on this site for your date. If it's in blue, we're available, but if it's red, someone else beat you to us.
