Q: Do you take breaks?
A: No! Unlike bands we keep the party rocking from start to finish with no stop!
Q: How interactive are your MCs?
A: That’s completely up to you! We can be background figures, interactive, or anywhere in-between
Q: How loud do you play the music?
A: One big concern with bands and DJs is that the music will be too loud. This will not be the case with our services. During cocktail and dinner hours we will play ambient background music. We will make sure that your guests can talk amongst each other without having to worry about the music being too loud. When it is time for dancing we will adjust accordingly. and speakers can be angled more toward the dance floor. This allows the volume of the music to be loud enough to dance while the rest of the room will be able to continue to socialize.
Q: Should we provide food for the NWN crew?
A: That is completely up to you. Please let us know prior to the event so we can plan accordingly.
Q: Do you have a wireless microphone?
A: We include a dual wireless microphone system as part of all of our packages at no additional charge.

Q: Do you mix your music?
A: Yes! That is what sets us apart from other DJ’s. We feel that automix functions on software spoils the mood of the dancefloor!

Feel free to check out some of our previous event mixes on our NWN Staff Pages.
