Our Requirements – FAQs

1. Your music list & MC Guide (if applicable) should be sent to Oppy Entertainment at least 2 weeks prior to your event.

2. Please ensure all payments are completed 4 weeks prior to your event.

3. Please ensure the start time of your reception, reflects the same start time booked as your entertainment. If your entertainer is booked from 6.00pm, but your guests are entering at 5.30pm, please ensure one of these times are changed, so that both are booked to start at the same time. Your entertainer will commence music as soon as your guests enter, which (if earlier than booked) may affect your ending time.

4. Please ask your M.C to introduce themselves to our entertainer before guests arrive, so that we can run through microphone techniques, and the running schedule of the night. If you have us booked to be your MC, then there is no need to worry about this.

5. Please ensure your venue has a 6 foot skirted trestle table & chair available for us on the day, setup in the area that you wish for your entertainer to setup.

6. Your floorplan should not have Grandma & Grandpa, or other elderly guests sitting right in front of the DJ. This is because this will be the loudest where the music will sound.

7. Thank you for asking! A meal is always appreciated when completing your venue’s checklist. With setup and packup times, a lot of our performers are there from around 8 to sometimes 13 hours! None have any special dietary requirements, except quite a few don’t eat seafood, and please remember if you have both entertainment AND a photobooth booked, then two meals will be required!. We would also prefer to not sit with your guests (purely to avoid awkward conversations!).

8. Please ensure there is enough free area for the entertainer to setup, and that the entertainer is arranged to be setup right in front of the dancefloor. This is a pretty important one, as our speakers will be where we setup, and if setting up the DJ in a different area, will mean that the music will not be covering the dancefloor area. We require a space of minimum 3.5m x 3.5m for most packages, which includes space for the DJ & lighting. (see our required space below)


9. Our Photobooth requirements.
Please ensure our photobooth backdrop is up against a solid wall. We require a space of approximately 3m x 3m x 2.5m high. We also require a single draped 6ft trestle table to be provided by the venue for props setup. We also need access to power nearby.
