Rock N Soul Events

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you based? - We are based in Bolton and typically cover the North-West of England. If you'd like us to travel further afield then let us know and we'll see what we can do to accomodate!

Are you insured? - Yes, we have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance and can provide a certificate upon request prior to the day of the event.

Is your equipment PAT tested? - Yes, we can provide a PAT certificate upon request prior to the day of the event.

What sort of music do you play? - You can find out more on our About page but our preferred genres are indie, rock 'n' roll, funk, soul, motown, and party classics from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s. To reiterate, it's your day and your music. You can provide as many requests prior to the event as you like and we will work to seamlessly mix them to keep the dancefloor going throughout the night. If you have any specific or niche songs that you would like to hear then it is important that you let us know in advance so that we can obtain and play them on the night.

Do you have all of your own equipment? - Yes. We have everything we need to DJ including a PA system, lights and DJ booth. See our Equipment page for further details.

What do you wear? - Once our equipment is setup we come suited and booted to fit in with your guests.

How do I book? - Simply send your enquiry via our Contact page and your booking will be confirmed via e-mail. A deposit of £100 and a completed booking agreement is required to secure your date. Any remaining balances are due 4 weeks prior to the event.

What happens when the booking is confirmed? - Once the booking is confirmed we will provide you with access to our online planning form where you can submit song requests and provide us with all of the relevant details to help us obtain a good understanding of the music you would like to hear on the night. We are on hand to answer questions at any point leading up to the big day.

Do you require any food and drinks? - We don't expect any food or drinks but if there's some evening buffet going spare then we always appreciate it.

When will you setup? - We require 60 to 75 minutes to carefully and safely setup our equipment. This time may need to be extended if there are long corridors or stairs to carry the equipment through. This setup time includes loading the equipment into the venue, setting up the DJ booth, speakers, lighting, mixer, controller, fog machine etc, as well as checking the sound levels. We ensure that any cables are neatly tucked away or taped the floor for safety reasons, and to ensure that the setup looks neat and tidy. We also need to quickly get changed once setup is complete so that we are dressed appropriately for the evening. Typically we would setup discreetly whilst your guests have dinner so that your party is ready to get started once the meals have finished. If you would prefer us to setup early so that we don't interrupt any proceedings, then we can try to accomodate this subject to venue and availability. We also require up to one hour to pack the equipment away. Please ensure that the venue can accomodate this after the event finishes.

Do you require a parking space? - Yes. We travel in a large long wheelbase van which contains all of our equipment therefore we require a suitable double parking space close to the venue to load the equipment in and out.

What happens if we have a band / singer performing? - We can work alongside any performers, ensuring that we introduce them when they are due to perform. Any bands or singers should ensure that they have all of the necessary equipment including a PA system.

The venue requires DJs to use their PA system, can you do this? - Yes. If your venue already has a PA sound system installed and they stipulate that the DJ has to use it, that’s fine. As long as it is suitable for a DJ performance and is good quality we’ll happily plug into it. Just make sure that you let us know when booking.
