Frequently Asked Questions

Are you insured?
Yes! We are insured for $1,000,000 per event. Proof of insurance can be presented to your banquet facility if they would like it.

How do I secure my date?
You may use this page to check date availability, If we are available we will then ask you to continue to our price quote page where it will ask you for your full contact information. Once we get the information, Shawn will call you back within the next business day to confirm your booking. Once confirmed by Shawn, you will get an email wth the contract attached. The next step is to sign a contract and provide a security deposit. This will secure your date. We accept cash, checks, major credit cards & Paypal.

Why do I have to sign a contract?
A contract is nothing scary; in fact, it protects you. Without a contract, a DJ (or anyone) could take your money and just not show up! A contract protects both sides and just makes sure that you’re getting exactly what you’re paying for. Even if you do not book with Ooh La La Music Company; please only book a DJ that makes you sign a contract!

Can we sign the contract through the mail?
Sure! We will mail you the contract and paperwork to fill out, and hold your date for a short time, so you can sign it and send it back with your security deposit.

Can we meet with our DJ in person?
Of course! If you prefer to meet in person, that is certainly understandable! Shawn will coordinate a meeting time and place and go over everything in person.

How do we finalize the details?
With your contract, you will receive a login to your wedding planning paperwork to fill out. This paperwork will tell us your special songs and requests, your “do not play” list and your announcement details. Also, your DJ will contact you at least one week before your wedding to finalize the details. We want to make sure your guests have a great time and we want your event to be done in an organized manner, so we don’t leave anything up to chance…

See, if something goes wrong- well, that makes you AND us look bad… and no one wants that! In fact; we want your celebration to go as well as you do!

Do you charge extra for MC services during my event?
NO! It’s true that some DJs charge per announcement, but that’s crazy! Let’s keep things easy… All announcements, introductions, table directing, etc. etc. are included in your package and handled professionally.

Where will you play?
We are always prepared for any setup at the banquet halls or meeting centers in the New Orleans area and surrounding region.

What kind of experience do you have?
Our DJs basically have the same story; it started out as a hobby, playing at friend’s parties and such… over the years, gaining professional experience with everything from bars and nightclubs to karaoke! And of course, weddings! Although the focus of the business is weddings, we still love playing all types of events. Always professional in performance and appearance, and we don’t smoke or drink on the job.

What kind of equipment do you use?
We use only Professional Grade DJ equipment with trusted names such as Bose, Pioneer, Numark and Mackie. Find out more on our equipment pages.

What kind of music do you play? Do you take requests?
Music? We got you covered! Of course, we play the right music at the right time… But that’s because our DJs actually LOVE music! We know NEW songs- we know OLD songs- and we know everything in between!

And yes, requests are encouraged! Some DJs just don’t know who you’re talking about when you name new artists or old favorites… if it’s not in their “DJ standard playbook”, forget it! But that’s just not the way we operate. We like to play a good mix that gets everyone up out of their seats and dancing!

Oh, by the way, don’t worry about basslines during dinner… or music so loud that you can’t hear for two days… we’re knowledgeable AND considerate! (but we can get VERY LOUD if you want it!)
