  • How soon should we reserve a DJ?
    When it comes to DJs, photographers or venues, the best always go first, so it's a good idea to reserve your DJ about a year in advance. We are already booking events for next year.
  • What is the process for reserving your services?
    If you feel comfortable with what you see on this website, and have heard from our references, then let's book it! Contact us using the form on the Contact Us page, email or call me directly. Once we determine if your event date is available, I will send out a contract for you to sign which will return with your deposit. Prior to your event, we will arrange for an initial consultation. We can meet virtually or in person (I'll buy you a drink and some food) if we do. We will go over the checklist, your music preferences, song list, etc.
  • When do I need to pay you?
    The deposit is paid when we book your event. The remaining balance is due at time of 2nd consultation.
  • What payment types do you accept?
    Personal check ($35 returned check fee)** Credit Card - Visa & Mastercard (3.5% processing fee /about $3.50 per $100) Venmo (1.9%+$0.10 of the payment / about $2.00 per $100) PayPal (2.9%+$0.30 of the payment / about $3.20 per $100) Cold Hard Cash, or a Collection from Relatives and Guests also works. **preferred payment method
  • Does the contracted time include equipment set up & travel?
    You are guaranteed 5 hours of playtime at a venue within 35 miles of downtown Boise. Equipment set-up and tear-down, preparation time, and consultations—either in person or on the phone, are all included in our agreed price. If guests arrive early, we won't let them sit in silence. If your 5-hour time varies, it will be clearly stated on the contract. Travel to multiple venues, wineries, and out of the area is charged as outlined on the Wedding page under Rates -Travel.
  • Can we purchase additional time at the end of the event?
    Yes. $150 per each hour, after 5 hours. If we see that everyone is having a great time, we will ask you if you want to keep the party going. We get your permission and keep playing.
  • What if you become sick or have an accident on the day of my wedding or event.
    We would have to be dying to not be there. We always have a backup plan.
  • What time do you arrive prior to the event?
    We always arrive 2 hours prior to a reception or wedding ceremony to set up our equipment. Other events vary, it's our company standard to arrive no later than 1 hour prior to an event.
  • Do we need to supply anything special for you?
    A power outlet within a reasonable distance, and an 8’ table with linens and/or skirting to match your event is all we need.
  • Have you ever had a couple file for divorce before their check cleared?
    Sadly, yes.
  • Can you provide music for our wedding ceremony?
    Yes! We provide the processionals, recessionals and even music during the ceremony if you need it. If needed, a wireless microphone may be placed where required so that all in attendance may hear what's happening. A second sound system may also be provided, if necessary. Our expertise provides you with the best possible sound setup for your event and venue.
  • What kind of music do you have?
    Due to the wonder of digital music platforms, we have access to literally millions of songs, from every decade or genre. We can provide music for every part of your event: background music for social hour, cocktails, and dinnertime.
  • Who selects the music at my event? Do you take requests?
    It's a combination between you and us. To help get you organized, we supply you with a form that outlines what music you want to be played and when. We encourage you to make music a priority and provide us with your playlist, your favorites. You know your guests best. Do they like to dance? We will do our best to keep everyone happy… your involvement helps us ensure a great event. Yes, we will take requests. However, we reserve the right to not play a song that we deem may not fit the tone of the event or might be offensive to guests. If the song requested is not downloaded to our library, the internet connection may limit us from acquiring it.
  • Are you a member of any professional organizations?
    If it makes a difference, then Yes, we are proud members of the prestigious National Association of Mobile Entertainers and the Idaho Disc Jockey Network as well as the Idaho Wedding Association.
  • Do you provide an ‘epic’ dance party?
    We are professionals and experts at what we do. However, we won’t force to do people what they don’t want to. If an ‘epic’ dance party is what you looking for at your reception, we encourage you to make the music a priority and provide us with your playlist of favorites. Think about providing props, like glow sticks and glasses, there are tons of fun options. You know your guests best. Do they like to dance? We will do our best to keep everyone engaged.
  • Are Directly Driven’s DJs entertainers?
    You are hiring a professional and expert DJ service to introduce events, and move people from the ceremony to cocktail hour, to the dinner, to the dance floor. We are warm and personable and love that we are a part of your most special day with your closest family and friends. We aren’t obnoxiously pushy or corny. We don’t tell jokes and dance or drink with the guests.
  • What's DDSP’s business philosophy?
    After over 23 years in business, with no advertising but ‘word of mouth’, our philosophy is simple: "Our goal is to make your event Unique, Memorable, and Extra Special."
